Don't travel to CO or WA to wash with weed: Malin+Goetz Cannabis Hand+Body Wash

With the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington, as well as other states considering it, it was only a matter of time before the other aspects of the weed were explored, such as its scent. Already -- as reported by The New York Times -- the U.S. Senate is considering "growing and researching industrial hemp, paving the way for several states to begin pilot growing programs for this variety of the cannabis plant, which can be refined into oil, wax, rope, cloth, pulp and other products." But maybe you don't have any plans to travel to those places . . . are you left out in the cold? No!

Enter cutting edge experts of the senses, Malin+Goetz. Malin is a beauty and style expert, while Goetz brings design and the sensuality of working with food to the table. As a food and travel writer myself, I think he's got a great thing going! I was glad to be hosted to experience their Cannabis Hand+Body Wash.

At first, my eyes widened. After all, I didn't want to smell like I had spent the day at a Bob Marley fest. But it's really not like that! It's described as being subtly scented with their signature Spicy Cannabis scent, with top notes of fresh lemon and orange, middle notes of fig and pepper, with a sophisticated base of oakmoss, sandalwood and amber-patchouli. I find the scent to be intriguing, warm, unisex or masculine. I use men's fragrances occasionally and am attracted to this one. I would be attracted to people wearing it, too.

So, how is the wash itself? It's got a lot of slip; it is probably the very best thing I've ever used for shaving! That's no doubt from the hydrating natural glycerin and protein amino acids.
