How it all began...

Helping Shelter Pets Find Homes
Our story begins in 2013, when our cofounders decided to help shelter pets get adopted with creative video campaigns. Over the next four years, they were able to partner with 1,200+ animal rescues and helping save the lives of 3,500+ pets. But, as they visited animal shelters across the country, they discovered a bigger problem: shelter pets often suffer from severe anxiety and other chronic conditions, that decrease their chances of getting adopted.

How it continues...

Improving Human Lives 

We first began to see improvements in the lives of pets from a Colorado shelter, but then we tested our hemp oil extract with our family. During this time Abe (our COO) gave a hemp dropper to a few of his family members including his sister with epilepsy and his mom with rheumatoid arthritis. They both experienced significant improvements and this paired with what we saw at the shelters motivated us to launch Leafwell Botanicals to help both pets and humans live their best lives.
