A Cannabis Company for Life

About Heylo


Heylo exists to help anyone get more out of life.


We make cannabis products that are
as close to the plant as possible.

Heylo is built on a mission of creating greater education and transparency in cannabis extraction. Heylo sells RawX pure cannabis vape cartridges, Heylotion™ topicals, as well as Treehaus and Yolo vapes in retail stores across Washington State and, beginning in 2024, Ohio. Heylo was founded by Lo Friesen in 2017 and is 100% woman and latina-owned. Lo is a trained chemist with field experience in a world-renowned gastroenterology lab.

Heylo products are unique among cannabis extracts. All oil from the Heylo Lab starts with the highest-quality bud (flower). Heylo goes to great lengths to preserve the plant's native terpenes and minor cannabinoids.

To support education and transparency Heylo opens the doors to our lab as much as possible while publishing as much data and information as we possess. All strains' analytical results are published on our website. Every product has a curated Spotify playlist, and many offering custom coloring sheets, workouts, and more. Heylo hosts public events, including Heylo Sessions, to support local charities and arts while encouraging cannabis education. Information about upcoming events can be found on our events page.

Heylo Create is a separate, non-cannabis company also founded by Lo Friesen. Heylo Create operates in the consulting, swag, and events space with operations in the Americas and Europe.

Why Heylo Exists

Heylo was founded by Lo Friesen in 2017. Lo is an environmental chemist who received her B.A. in chemistry from Northwestern University. Her time spent working at the renowned gastroenterology department of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL helped inspire a pivot from a traditional career in medicine into cannabis. Lo worked for a cannabis extraction machine manufacturer and another processing company before founding Heylo.

Lo founded Heylo to create a cannabis company in the spirit of health and wellness. She founded the company with two principal values - education and transparency. In an industry with tremendous promise to help the world, these two characteristics were sorely lacking.

Heylo hit the shelves in Washington State in August 2017. The company has been awarded four first place awards by Terpestival, was recognized by Leafly as a one of the "People's Favorite Concentrate Brands", and received a 20/20 nod from the Northwest Leaf. In December 2018, Heylo was named "Best Overall Company" by Leafly.
