Here at Lolahemp, quality has been our number one priority from day one. In fact, our founder Joey started this brand after he saw the benefits of full spectrum hemp oil for his own rescue dog, Lola.
Frustrated that he had a hard time sourcing a high quality CBD oil made just for pets Joey was determined to make the highest quality CBD oil for dogs possible so that other pet parents would have access to a safe, reliable, high quality CBD oil for their pets.
But what does “high quality” mean when it comes to hemp oil for pets?
Here at Lolahemp, we are very proud of our products. Here’s why:
Full Spectrum CBD Oil for Pets
Many of the CBD products that are flooding the shelves of big box pet stores these days are based on isolated CBD. These brands will often use marketing such as “THC free” in order to present their products as best for pets. However, CBD isolate is not a sign of quality, nor is it better for pets.
First, let’s just be clear. Although full spectrum CBD products can contain trace amounts of THC in them (less than 0.3% by law), research has shown it is safe for dogs.
CBD isolate is made from hemp using a variety of chemical and mechanical means to strip away all other compounds found in both the source hemp as well as any pesticides or other harmful residues from industrial farming practices. These processes end with a pure CBD powder that can be added to products such as oil tinctures and edibles, regardless of the quality of the original hemp.
That may sound great, but hold on. Research has found that the various flavanoids, terpenes, and other cannabinoids that are naturally found in hemp are actually supportive of the healing properties of this plant. In fact, researchers call this synergistic property “The Entourage Effect.”
Lolahemp uses a robust full spectrum CBD oil in all of our products including oil tinctures, CBD salve, and hemp chews. View our lab results to learn more about our robust cannabinoid profile so that your pet can take advantage of The Entourage Effect.
Responsible Sourcing: Domestic Organic Hemp
Right now the CBD market is flooded with hemp products made from cheap hemp sourced from China. Estimates suggest that as much as 70% of the hemp products in the U.S. are made with hemp that comes from China. And, there is a real problem with that.
The hemp plant is known to be a bioaccumulator. That means it sucks up and concentrates the heavy metals and other worrying chemicals found in commercial agriculture, particularly in China where hemp is often grown as a cover crop to deliberately cleanse these harmful chemicals out of fields that are actually designed to grow other crops.
In fact, one study did some testing of hemp products in the U.S. markets and found some alarming results: “After thousands of tests, 70 percent of products were found "highly contaminated" with heavy metals like lead and arsenic, herbicides like glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp) and a host of other contaminants including pesticides, BPA and toxic mold.”
Rather than being satisfied with cheap Chinese hemp, Lolahemp sources our hemp from a certified organic family farm in Colorado where our specialty strain of CBD rich hemp is hand harvested in artisanal batches. When it comes to quality sourcing, Lolahemp goes the extra mile so that you can feel safe giving our hemp products to your pet.

Precise Manufacturing and Rigorous Testing for Quality
We are so serious about quality here at Lolahemp that our product is tested three times from seed to bottle. And, we use a slow, low temp and pressure extraction to ensure a robust full spectrum hemp oil dense with cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes thought by researchers to support the healing benefits of CBD.
We start our process with our partners at an organic family farm in Colorado using a high CBD specialty strain of hemp. The first step in our vigorous testing process includes testing the hemp which has been hand harvested from the field ...
Once the biomass is tested, it is extracted using a cold ethanol process, the absolute cleanest and best way to extract a full spectrum of cannabinoids and flavonoids from hemp. We process in small batches to ensure the highest quality, robust full spectrum hemp oil.
We infuse our full spectrum hemp extract with naturally occurring CBD which has been isolated to ensure consistent concentration of CBD that our customers can rely on to provide consistent support for their pet’s needs.
We test every batch of products we make with a third party lab to make sure our cannabinoid potency is where it should be. Then we provide up to date batch lab results on our website so that customers can buy with confidence. Every product we sell comes with a QR code so customers can verify the test results for each and every product they buy.
Pet Safe Ingredients
Finally, every pet owner wants to be sure that they are giving their pets a safe product. Here at Lolahemp, we have made sure to only include ingredients that will support the healing benefits of our products while making sure they are pet safe.
In this day and age, with so many CBD products for people on the market, it is very important to be sure you purchase something made just for pets. This is because flavorings and sweeteners commonly used in human grade products can actually be toxic to dogs. To learn more, be sure to read our informative article on differences between CBD for people and pets.
We use MCT oil as a carrier oil for our full spectrum tinctures. This medium chain triglyceride has a variety of health benefits on its own and it is thought to improve the absorption of the active cannabinoids found in hemp extract. And, our CBD balm for pets includes a host of supportive natural ingredients to support skin health in dogs.
