Holiday Hemp Mocktail with Lumen Elixirs

I have found a wellness goldmine by the name of Lumen.

Hemp juice is extremely difficult to find, especially whole plant cold-pressed. I met the people behind Lumen at a cafe in Oakland, California just three months ago as they were moving from juice to elixirs. At first they were making 12 oz. bottles of hemp juice with fruit and veggies, but have since shifted to 2 oz. shots of hemp adaptogenic elixirs (wow, right?) These people are amazing.

What is even cooler is that Lumen sources all their hemp from a regenerative hemp farm in Oregon. Lumen is extremely mission-driven and care a ‘dirt’ ton for our belovedly sick Earth. How much cooler does it get?! Here’s a pic of 2/3rd of the company. Aren’t they the cutest?!!? (THIS is the future of cannabis, my friends.)

Well anyhow, since working beside them at that coffee shop, I have had the opportunity to experiment with their juices, creating some of my own Lumen recipes. This holiday mocktail, included.

Why adaptogenic hemp juice elixirs, you ask?

There is something very synergetic between cannabis and nutrition, and especially between plant medicines, how they are grown, and how they make us feel. So to find a company that encompasses the bridges between cannabis, nutrition, and regenerative farming is a friend of Mother Indica’s indeed. This MATTERS. Learn their story here.
