Rygg has multiple start-ups under his belt and holds an MBA in Business from Penn State University. He has a background in building cutting-edge internet technology, having previously worked for AOL, Yahoo, and CompuServe, among others.

Cruz Hemp offers a subscription option for most of its products. Customers can sign up to receive either one or two products a month and will receive a discount. This is a great way for customers to get a constant supply of their incredibly beneficial products without having to remember to order them every month.
They also provide customers with a 30-day money-back guarantee on any of their products. They believe in their brand so much that any customer who is not completely satisfied can return their product with an explanation for a full refund. It’s a great way for new customers to try Cruz Hemp risk-free.
Cruz Hemp Product Review Highlights
The CBD products Cruz Hemp creates come in one of two forms—roll-ons and lotions/oils.
They offer three formulations of their 500 mg CBD roll-on: Icy Relief, Sensitive Skin, and Rejuvenate. Each effective formula is made with either an organic sunflower, camellia seed, or jojoba oil base and 100-percent non-GMO CBD isolate. On average, a bottle provides about 75 applications using their easy-to-use stainless steel roll-on applicator tip. Their roll-ons work even better when combined with one of their lotions or oils.
To that end, Cruz Hemp has three options in their lotion and oil category: the 750 mg CBD Icy Relief Lotion,Rejuvenate Face and Body Lotion, and the 1,200 mg Organic Jojoba CBD Infused Carrier Oil. They all come in a four-ounce bottle with an airless serum pump for easy application. Each formula was developed for a specific concern while still moisturizing and softening the skin, and work great independently or, as discussed above, when combined with a roll-on for maximum benefit.
In addition, Cruz Hemp sells therapeutic-grade essential oils and other non-CBD options like hemp seed oil, beard oil, and a CBD-free roll-on.
Cruz Hemp’s products all start with the highest quality ingredients and hemp that is both extracted and processed in Colorado. They try to keep every ingredient that goes into their products as close to nature as possible, using only organic and non-GMO ingredients.
Each and every product Cruz Hemp sells is formulated, tested, and refined until they are happy with the results. If it doesn’t make the cut, it will go back to be reformulated until it does. That’s how they ultimately ended up with some of the most effective CBD topicals on the market.
Every product also comes with a special label that features its batch number and QR code. There are two different types of labels—the roll-on label, and the lotion and carrier oil label. Each takes the customer directly to the lab results for that particular product.
Cruz Hemp proudly publishes all of their laboratory results in their website’s Laboratory Results section, provided that the customer has their product in front of them.
Every product Cruz Hemp sells comes with a six-digit batch number and QR code printed on the label. The customer just needs to enter that number into the search bar on that page (or 101002/101003 for CBD products without a batch number) to see that product’s laboratory results.
The lab results, or Certificate of Analysis, which are provided by sclabs, contain the product’s THC content and the results for its pesticide, heavy metals, solvents, and microbial impurity testing. They also contain a cannabinoid profile.
