The accuracy variances for our Penelope’s Bloom products concerning potency are excellent, with six checked products testing below the acceptable 10% variance limit allowed. All ordered tinctures and topicals passed purity testing for pesticides, solvents, microbials, and heavy metals, according to third party lab reports which are available for customer access in a centralized hub online. The three varieties of Penelope’s Bloom edible pet treats passed testing for microbes and mycotoxins only, to the best of our knowledge.

About the Company

Penelope’s Bloom began with a French bulldog named Penelope who had been diagnosed with a chronic, degenerative physical condition. This finding started a journey toward providing premium quality, human grade, cruelty free CBD products that focused on a pet’s physical and mental health. Their organic, non-GMO products are recommended by veterinarians for both cats and dogs due to the simple and short list of ingredients used in Penelope’s Bloom CBD products, namely chamomile, MCT oil, and full spectrum CBD.

Transparency

Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control tool to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are very close to the contents of each final product a customer receives. Penelope’s Bloom CBD has a centralized lab testing link on their company homepage under the “Lab Reports” link at the bottom of every page online under “Products.”

All of the products in our Penelope’s Bloom order were third party tested for CBD and THC content. Purity tests for foreign contaminants such as microbials and mycotoxins, however, were performed on all checked products. Standard purity tests for pesticides and heavy metals were unavailable for the edible treats at this time.

Accuracy

Using the centralized lab testing hub, it was easy to match all six of the ordered products with the independent third party lab results for potency. As far as the highest accuracy variance in this order, the 300 mg full spectrum, organic CBD fire and ice topical balm tested as containing 270.65 total mg of CBD, which represents a 9.78% accuracy variance, still lower than the acceptable 10% limit. The lowest accuracy variance was associated with the 1000 mg full spectrum, organic tincture, which tested as containing 1003.11 total mg of CBD. This calculates to an accuracy variance of a mere .31%, well below the 10% variance limit allowed. All full spectrum products were confirmed by independent third party testing to contain less than the legal 0.3% limit of THC.

Reputation

According to the company website, Penelope’s Bloom saw a “great need for a premium quality CBD for pets that had product integrity, consumer transparency, and we delivered results.” All of their packaging is made with recycled materials and they use only eco-conscious ingredients to help the planet. They are dedicated to giving back to the community through various animal rescue collaborations. In addition, a portion of all customer proceeds goes to a nationwide non-profit animal support organization.

Manufacturing Process

Penelope’s Bloom is a legal, authorized grower of premium organic U.S. hemp, sourced from Kentucky farms. Their hemp derived, full spectrum CBD products are extracted using a CO2 based process before being formulated with easily digestible MCT oil as the carrier for maximum bioavailability. After formulation, the next step is independent third party CBD testing, which is an important safety and quality control measure utilized by Penelope’s Bloom to ensure that the labeled potency of CBD and THC matches the contents.

They conduct independent potency lab testing for all of their products and post the available results on their website under the “Lab Reports” link located on the very bottom of each page under the “More Links” heading. Any absent test results for purity or potency can be requested from customer service, who will provide any lab results not listed online or help with an explanation of the results.

Range of Products

Penelope’s Bloom offers premium quality, vegan, organic pet CBD products that are available in the form of full spectrum tinctures, topicals, and edible treats. Their products range from 10 mg to 1000 mg and are average priced when compared to other organic brands, with an overall price point average of $.09 per mg of CBD.

CBD Pet Tinctures

These CO2 extracted, vegan, organic tinctures are formulated with MCT oil for easy digestion, and are offered in several specialized varieties. All include only three ingredients: organic chamomile, MCT oil, and full spectrum CBD. Penelope’s Bloom offers several effect specific options for both cats and dogs, including heart health, immunity, anxiety, and joint mobility. These tinctures are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use, or they can be added to beverages or food.

Buying Experience

Their easy to navigate website was user friendly, with each product page providing comprehensive product information for each item in that category, as well as ingredients, potencies, and suggested uses by the company. There is a separate FAQ link on the main website, and there is an option to “Shop All” products at once or by category. As mentioned earlier, all of the third party potency and purity lab results available for the Penelope’s Bloom CBD product catalog are located under the centralized “Lab Reports” testing hub.

Their customer support team is easily available via online messaging, email and phone. Customer service was contacted via online message and email but the response time was long. However, when using their toll free phone number and leaving a detailed voicemail inquiring about COAs for their pet treats, a team member responded the same day via phone and provided the information requested. Orders get free ground shipping with a $50 minimum order, and a shipping confirmation email with tracking was received. The order arrived via Priority Mail in a box that was not completely discreet, and all products were securely packaged inside.
