We wonder where exactly it would rank in relation to the Internet’s infamous Rule 34 (“If it exists, there is porn of it…”) but we feel pretty optimistic about the inevitable universal acceptance of our own brand-new proposition: “If it exists, someone will improve it with pot.”
If Dope On A Rope Hemp Soap should ever burgeon into the next Burt’s Bees as a ubiquitously beloved all-natural hygiene staple, we’ll hold out hope that our simple little maxim gains consideration as a tagline. This moisturizing blend of fine essential oils and organic hemp seed oil was born circa Thanksgiving 2008 in Colorado, when a dedicated wildland firefighter named Jason was capping his day with a satisfying shower and having a terrible time gripping the soap.
He took his longing for soap on a rope one step further: he wanted soap on a rope shaped like a marijuana leaf. He then really went for broke and declared it should be made from the gentlest, healthiest ingredients around and called “Dope on a Rope.”
Timing is everything and necessity is ever the mother of invention. Not long at all after testing recipes, refining their molds, and sorting out trademarks, Jason and his wife Jenny were blown away by their first night of massive sales in the Red Rocks Amphitheatre parking lot during Reggae on the Rocks, not far removed from Jason losing his day job. From there, it was onward to more concerts, cannabis conventions, farmers markets, and even selling soap atop the Grand Canyon.
Though the pair returns to Colorado to sell their wares amidst music festivals and farmers markets each summer, they currently produce Dope on a Rope Hemp Soap in a modest southwest Florida studio. Of course, their original all-natural soaps are available worldwide online in a vast variety, along with a range of offshoot products.
