Where To Buy 'Shark Tank's Bee Thinking Products, Because They're Sure To Get A Lot Of Buzz

Among the new entrepreneurial efforts to be featured in Friday's episode of Shark Tank is the Bee Thinking line. As the name might suggest, Bee Thinking is actually a Portland-based company that sells all thing bees, from screened headgear and gorgeous cedar beehives to raw honey and handmade candles — they've got it all. Interestingly enough, they actually started as a resource for fellow beekeepers, and soon began marketing their own hives, which are actually quite unique. As per their website, Bee Thinking's innovative foundationless hives have the distinction of being the first of their kind.

So what is a foundationless hive, exactly? Well, for bee fans, the name's likely relatively self-explanatory, but for those of us a little less well-acquainted with the art of beekeeping (myself included), here's the lowdown. Foundationless hives actually help keep the bees in an environment a little closer to what they're used to — they allow the bees to create combs the way they would in nature (standard beehives force the bees to modify their combs more). Along with the freedom afforded by the foundationless hives, the founders of Bee Thinking also advocate for an all-natural beekeeping experience — so no pesticides or chemicals allowed. Sounds pretty cool, no?

If you're interested in buying any of the Bee Thinking products, they are all currently available on the company's website. From actual hives and the accompanying tools to honey, candles, and other products, they've got everything bee-related you could ever ask for — oh, and they offer free shipping. Or if you live in the Portland area, you can go check out their brick-and-mortar store.

So Bee Thinking leave Shark Tank with a deal? Here's why I hope they do.

The Beekeeping Industry Needs Help

As the New York Times reported, the possibility of bee extinction has been looming large for years now — and as it turns out, the beekeeping industry isn't in great shape, either. Why not give back in any way you can? One small hive may seem like a drop in the ocean, but if Shark Tank could make Bee Thinking the next Scrub Daddy, who knows what could happen?

Honey May Have Health Benefits

The jury's still out on the scientific side of things, but some research shows that honey has antibacterial properties, as well as antioxidants. Heck, some even use it for wound care, while others find that it eases ailments like seasonal allergies and the common cold.

Bee Pollen Also Has Some Potential Advantages

Like honey, bee pollen has been linked to potential health benefits and according to Livestrong, it may even help counteract diabetes-related kidney problems.

Honey Is Delicious

Forget the bees and possible health bonuses — honey is straight-up delicious (Pooh knows what's up).

Bee Thinking may have won me over, but we'll have to wait and see if they can convince the sharks.
