The founders of Element brand products have been farming hemp since 2017, and have spent years studying the plant’s most important properties and how they can be used to support the wellbeing of horses, dogs, and the other important pets in your life. Unlike most high CBD cultivators, we don’t use mountains of plastic or chemicals to bring our crop to fruition. We use regenerative farming practices, which include maintaining year round cover crops to protect our overworked soil from continued erosion. Eliminating things like glyphosate while reducing water usage is one of the key components that makes our company different, and that difference is something our planet needs more than ever.

Products like Remedy stand out from industry competitors, as remedy is the first equine pellet on the market that is made from fresh, full spectrum hemp, containing cannabinoid dosages that studies show are high enough to create noticeable results. Remedy offers dosages far above industry competitors, and we do it with freshly milled hemp, not leftover material from previous chemical extraction.

From choosing the mother plants each fall for the subsequent crop, to packaging our products, our team is there from start to finish. We know hemp, we know animals, and we know nutrition. Element Original brand products are the gold standard when choosing a hemp based supplement for your animal.
