Elite Botanicals was one of the first hemp companies licensed under the Colorado Department of Agriculture in 2014 cultivating high-CBD cannabis plants under industrial hemp regulations. Working with CBD in 2013 with Dr. Alan Shackelford, our company had the first dedicated CBD processing lab built and licensed in the state of Colorado. Via the partnership with Mary’s Nutritionals, we helped to develop and launch the second CBD product suite available nationally (alongside the Stanley brothers with their Charlottes Web line). We have historically focused our business around more wholesale and product development with partner brands vs. launching our own product suites direct to market, and have maintained supply relationships with some of the largest brands in the industry.

Since 2015 we have been working with Colorado State University on one of their canine CBD research studies and we white-label pet drops/tinctures for several other brands, including one that stems directly from the funding of that active study and a co-branding partner that we have sold under using the Whole Pet branding ( In 2017 we developed the Whole Pet product line with the intent of having ultra premium quality at significantly higher potency than anything else in the market while retaining a similar or lower price point than the competition.

It has been a challenging and winding road being involved in the CBD manufacturing world since the beginning, but have always felt like proper ethics, honor, quality and perseverance would get us through. The whole Elite Botanicals team is proud to be able to bring our entire suite of Whole Pet CBD products back to market in their original form, original potencies and with the ability to provide secure transactions to our customers via Square processing services.

We develop products that are effective and safe to ensure our own loved ones have the type of quality products we demand and they deserve. It is our pleasure to be able to offer that same level of quality to you.
