Hi. My name is Dave. My discovery of natural hemp as a pet health product started with my dog Mya. Although I bought her from a reputable breeder, when Mya was just six months old, I noticed she was having trouble keeping up with her brother, Che. Our vet recommended non-steroidal medication and invasive surgery.
I wanted a healthier treatment option. During my research, I discovered natural hemp oil and immediately ordered a variety of hemp pet products to try. I wasn’t impressed with the quality and more importantly, Mya wasn’t either.
Mya deserves better. I decided to make a higher quality hemp oil health product for dogs than I could find in the marketplace. A product that would list the dosage and all of the other ingredients for pets. Most of the hemp oil used in these products was coming from China and contained heavy metals and pesticides. Again, Mya deserved better.
I moved my search to the U.S. and with the recommendation from a trusted veterinarian, I found a natural hemp grower and processor in Colorado that I was extremely impressed with. I knew I’d found the highest quality phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) hemp oil for pets available!
The next step was formulating a hemp oil product that would also treat hips and joints. Our formula for CannaNatural™ contains green-lipped mussels (a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin) and salmon oil. View our full ingredient list here.
Finally, a hemp oil product for pets that was high quality and healthy enough for Mya. After a few weeks on our hemp product, Mya was back to a more active lifestyle. She was running around with her brother Che and climbing stairs with ease. I’ve expanded the line to include CannaBalm™, a hemp salve for pets and CannaCrush™, a hemp supplement for dogs who have trouble chewing a nugget and your feline friends.
Before I knew it, I was selling pet hemp oil infused health products out of
the back of my truck. I was making balms, traveling across the US, and recruiting
family, friends, and their families to help him run the new business. Dave’s old friend Polly came on board full time, bringing experience in channel sales, marketing, and business management.
And the team’s been growing ever since.
