Frequently asked questions
What makes Bee Wick different from the other hemp wick companies?
There are a few things that make us different. We only use medicinal-grade beeswax to make our wick, which means our beeswax is guaranteed 99.9% pure with no additives or fillers. All of our products are handmade in Chico, CA California by a small (but growing) team of dedicated employees; nothing made in China like the other guys. Our prices are lower than other US based hemp wick companies, and we use only 100% organic hemp.
How can you afford to sell your hemp wick for such a good price?
We can afford to sell our wick for less because we do not spend money on flashy advertising or expensive web/product designs. We only spend what we need to make a great product, and we pass the savings on to our customers. We have a loyal fan base that is growing; we feel that a great product at a fair price will sell itself.
How long will it take for my order to be shipped?
We ship all orders the next business day after they are ordered. Sometimes we even ship the same business day if the order is placed early enough. We know our fans want their wick as soon as possible, so we make it a priority to get our products shipped out fast.
I'm still skeptical about the whole hemp wick thing. How do I even know it is better than using a regular lighter?
To be honest, we do not know if it is healthier than a regular lighter. But from years of personal experience, I can tell you that you definitely enjoy a more pleasurable experience when using hemp wick. Beeswax is also the cleanest burning source of fuel known to man- it actually removes pollution from the air when lit. Still, we aren't scientists, so we cannot say for sure. Another reason our customers enjoy using our wick is because it is cheaper than buying lighters all the time, so many peoplel believe that is a good enough reason in itself.
What is Bee Wick Hemp?
Bee Wick Hemp is a hemp wick that is made from just two of mother earth’s finest renewable resources: beeswax and hemp fiber. We start with an organically grown hemp twine, which is then dipped by hand in 100% pure American beeswax. We do all of this entire process, as well as packaging, labeling, and shipping to you, right here in our Chico, CA location. Our hemp wick is made of just two ingredients, without any added chemicals, GMO’s, or fillers; just pure hemp and beeswax for the cleanest burning hemp wick possible.
We are one of the only hemp companies that can say that we proudly make our hemp wick in the US, with 100% American beeswax. Many other companies claim to be made in Europe; however, while many of these companies do grow the hemp in Europe, most of them use imported Chinese beeswax to wax their hemp. They then import the finished product and sell it here without their hands ever even touching the finished product!
Here at Bee Wick Hemp, the only part of the process that is done outside of the US is the actual growing of the hemp itself; that’s it. Every other part of the process is done by hand in our Chico, CA location by one of our staff members. We have a small team of dedicated worker bee’s that work extremely hard to make sure each and every unit we produce is up to our quality standards.
