The word “bro” has assumed a few different meanings over the last decade or so. It’s either used as a moniker of respect and closeness, as in “He’s my bro,” a derogatory term associated with fraternities, or in a sarcastic way, as in “Cool story, bro.”
It’s Bro Hemp is none of these things and actually has an amusing story behind it. The brand was launched by Steve Breault. The name “Breault” is a variant of the French surname “Breaux” and is pronounced in the same way, with the “ult” being silent. This means that Steve spent his life telling people how to pronounce his name after they tried and invariably failed.
This is where “It’s Bro” comes from.
Breault remains the main man at It’s Bro Hemp and produces premium CBD hemp products, all sourced from Oregon.
About It’s Bro Hemp
It’s Bro Hemp doesn’t list a founding date on its website but as far as we can tell, it launched in late 2019 and began to make a name for itself during 2020. In fact, like so many e-commerce companies, it had a huge 2020. During this period, the company received dozens of positive reviews on major sites like Trustpilot and was also praised by critics.
The company seems to respond to all of the negative reviews it receives and also reserves gratitude for the positive ones. This is always good to see but it’s something that many larger companies overlook. In fact, judging by the perspective of these responses, we’d guess that they were made by the owner himself.
Hemp Flower Varietals
You can purchase a wide range of CBD products and hemp flowers from It’s Bro Hemp. All of these are labeled with the brand’s distinctive logo, which takes inspiration from Breaking Bad by using the chemical symbol for Bromine (“Br”).

It’s a great selection of products and means you can incorporate CBD and hemp oil into all aspects of your life. If we had to pick a fault, however, we’d like to see a little more information on the product pages.
They’ve done a good job of highlighting the benefits and showcasing the main uses, but they are lacking some essential info. For instance, the ingredients are not listed for many of the bath products or edibles.
Do the gummies contain gelatin, thus making them acceptable for vegetarians/vegans? What oils and additives are used in personal care products? Perhaps more importantly, what’s in the protein bars? We loved the idea of protein bars and were instantly intrigued to see whether they used a high-quality protein or a cheap one.
The difference is massive. Some are vegetarian/vegan friendly, others aren’t. Some are dairy-based (whey, casein) others are vegan (pea, brown rice). And then you have the biggest question of all, does a CBD protein bar use hemp protein? If it does, why isn’t it being advertised as such, and if not, why not?
We’re sure that we’re not the only ones who study the labels and like to know every ingredient. A little info can go a long way.
