While they didn’t make this year’s list of the Best CBD Oil for Dogs, Pet Releaf has recently made some promising changes to their production process. Here’s an in-depth look at the Pet Releaf brand.
Who is Pet Releaf?
Pet ReLeaf is a pet-specific CBC company who are committed to a see-to-shelf model—or, as they say, “plant to pet.” The brand oversees all elements of the production process, starting with their own joint-venture hemp farm in eastern Colorado, which is the largest organic-certified hemp farm in the country.
After growing their bespoke strain of cannabis called PR-33, Pet ReLead also closely controls the extraction process. Since we reviewed them for our Best Of review, the company has swapped to a supercritical CO2 extraction method, the highest industry-standard available, which is great to see. CO2 extraction improves the final purity of the CBD product by removing a greater amount of excess plant material.
Unlike some CBD companies, Pet Releaf also hand-bakes all of their own CBD treats in their own kitchen. Dedicated Pet Releaf bakers work full time to develop the tastiest, most beneficial recipes for pups in need of a CBD boost.
Pet Releaf: Key points
Pet Releaf Hemp Oil (330, 700, 1700 mg CBD)
Full spectrum extract
13 cents per mg of CBD at largest size
Organic coconut oil (MCT) carrier
Pet Releaf’s hemp oil is made from their own cannabis strain and infused into organic coconut oil, which we consider one of the best carriers. According to independent lab tests, it’s a rich spectrum oil, full of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes (also found in essential oils) alongside a high concentration of CBD.
To help owners dial-in the correct dosage for their dog’s size and needs, Pet Releaf formulate their oil in three different strengths, all of which offer competitive value for money in terms of price per milligram of CBD. Each size contains the following concentrations:
- Hemp Oil 330 contains 100mg of active CBD within 330mg of Hemp Extract. A single dropper does contain approximately 3.3mg of CBD.
- Hemp Oil 700 contains 200mg of active CBD within a 500mg Hemp Extract. A single dropper will give you 7mg of CBD.
- Hemp Oil 1700 contains 500mg of CBD with a hemp extract that totals 700mg. Each dropper offers approximately 17mg of CBD.
Pet Releaf CBD Liposome Hemp Oil (100, 300 & 600mg CBD)
Full spectrum extract
20 cents per mg of CBD at largest size
Infused in a mix of vegetable Glycerin and pollock Oil
Using the same CBD extract, Pet Releaf also offers an alternative CBD oil formulation that’s specially designed for combining with meals. This water soluble version of their CBD mixes easily with your pup’s favorite food and is jacked up with sustainably sourced Wild Alaskan Red Pollock oil, which is rich in fatty acids for maintaining joint and coat health.
Just like their traditional formula, the Pet Releaf Liposome Hemp Oil is available in multiple strengths to suit different sized dogs. The 300 model contains 300mg of active CBD (about 10mg per dropper), while CBD Liposome Hemp Oil 600 contains a full 600 milligrams of active CBD.
Pet Realeaf Edibites (Original, Soft Chews, Limited edition)
Full spectrum extract
Organic, no-filler treat ingredients
All of Pet Releaf’s ‘Edibites’ treats are made in-house and are developed with a health-conscious approach that we really appreciate. Their CBD treats are grain free and organic, and some contain other beneficial dietary ingredients such as turmeric, which can contribute to reducing inflammation in its own right.
Beyond flavor, there are soft and brittle textures to choose from, and each flavor is offered in regular and large dog sizing with different concentrations of CBD.
There’s even a limited edition collection with some slightly more crazy flavors (Pizza and Sushi), with cool packaging dedicated to pop artist Keith Haring.
- Peanut Butter and Banana
- Blueberry and Cranberry
- Peanut Butter and Carob Swirl
- Sweet Potato Pie
Edibites Barking Dog Collection
- Downtown Pizza
- Uptown Sushi
Usually when making our final verdict, we weigh up the pros and cons of CBD products and decide whether the brand is worth considering. With Pet Releaf, however, we couldn’t find any downsides!
Beginning with their own self-named PR-33 strain of hemp, their keep a close eye on their entire production process to create an oil that’s full of awesome secondary cannabinoids and calming terpenes.
