Local Business Highlight:
Ask Wellness

Hey! Kelly here bringing you another business highlight!

These are my very favorite articles to write. Today's star of the show is Ask Wellness, which is located in downtown Casper.

So what is Ask Wellness and what kind of products and services do they offer? In short, they offer Wyoming made CBD, eco-friendly packaging, and natural and organic personal care products.

I'm going to be perfectly honest here, I didn't know much in regards to hemp or CBD prior to looking into Ask Wellness. After some thorough research, I am blown away by their products and what potential they have for those struggling with different mental and physical issues.

Read on to be amazed!

What is Ask Wellness?

Their website sums it up best: "At Ask Wellness we believe everyone deserves the best wellness journey possible."

If you battle anxiety, stress, PTSD, seizures, pain, or inflammation, then you NEED to check out Ask Wellness! They offer CBD products that have been known to help people in these situations. 

What makes them unique?

Their CBD is made locally in Wyoming. I also found it really interesting that, along with their "unbound tablets" for humans, they offer "unleash tablets" for pets.

Ask Wellness encourages and supports taking care of our mental health along with the health of the world we live in. This is apparent in their eco-friendly packaging. Big win for the environment here!

They make natural products that are good for you

It excites me that they offer products that strive to avoid chemicals and focus on using natural ingredients. You can find hair care products here that are free of plastic, soap, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and silicones. Ask Wellness's beauty products are as natural and clean as they come!

Did I mention they are a local family-owned business? That combined with their passion for mental and physical health AND taking care of the environment makes Ask Wellness a business I want to support.

For October, they are focusing on Mental Health and offering 15% off Mental Health Boost Paks, Bath Soaks, Calm + Clarity and unbound Elixar. Who doesn't like discounts?

Check out their website for more information on their products or find them at 163 S Wolcott St. in Casper. They are open 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
