Brand Spotlight: Pet Releaf

Pet Releaf is a CBD brand that we’re so very proud to carry. Like all great companies, they started with the intention of solving a problem.

In the early 2000’s a seed was planted into the minds of Pet Relief’s founders Alina and Steve Smith. They were in search of healthier alternatives for their border collie german shepherd mix Maddy and their black cat Shadow.

Very soon they came to realize that even the products that were deemed healthy were full of the same or very similar additives and fillers that were in standard pet products. The only difference was the clever packaging and claims that were found on the so-called healthy products.


Deep down they knew that there had to be a better way.

Pet Releaf – The Backstory

As the years passed their dog Maddy grew older and started dealing with severe aches and pains caused by arthritis. At the time, their vet only had one thing to offer them, pain killers. Although the medication helped to relieve her pain, they made the Smith's once joyful dog become absent.

Yet again they had that feeling in their stomachs telling them that there had to be a better way. With endless time and devotion, Alina and Steve decided to listen to their instincts and create a better way. Before they knew it, Pet Releaf was born!

Your Pet's Health and Happiness is Their Number One Priority

When the Smiths began developing their organic CBD hemp oil for pets, it became clear very quickly that in order to manufacture the highest quality and most effective products, they’d have to control the entire process, from seed to sale, and from plant to pet™.

All of the hemp extracts found in their products are sourced from a joint-venture hemp farm that’s located in eastern Colorado. Although there are more and more companies growing hemp in Colorado the farm that they’ve partnered with is extra special. It’s the largest Certified USDA Organic hemp farm in the United States. What’s even more exciting is that Pet Releaf is the only pet company that they work with!

As if having Certified USDA Organically grown hemp extracts wasn’t already enough, Pet Releaf went the extra mile and developed their own unique strain of hemp designed specifically for pets. Their farming partners literally walked ditch lines all over eastern Colorado in search of the best hemp strains.

Then their geneticist/botanist performed analyses of each of the plants. From these analyses, Pet Releaf was able to choose the cannabinoid profile that was best for animals. Out of all these efforts came a new strain of hemp known as PR-33.

PR-33 has a very low THC profile in comparison to most other full spectrum CBD extracts. On average their plants only contain 0.1% THC. This means that none of their products have the ability to get your pets stoned. It also means that your pets will still be able to benefit from the entourage effect.

Pet Releaf is the only company that uses this strain of hemp in their products which may be one of the reasons why their products are so effective.

Their hemp extraction process

Yet another way that they’re keeping your pets safe is by using a supercritical CO2 extraction method. Using CO2 is one of the safest and cleanest ways of making CBD hemp extracts. All that’s needed is pressurized air and extremely low temperatures to safely and effectively remove every beneficial cannabinoid found in PR-33. 

Like every other company found on ShopCBD all of their products have undergone 3rd party lab testing to ensure that all of the claims they’re making are true.
