Honest Paws was founded as the result of one owner’s conviction that her dog deserved better than prescription medications with nasty side-effects.
When told by vets that her pup would need to begin using lifelong medications that often cause severe lethargy, she felt that better options must be out there.
After finding that her dog’s condition dramatically improved after just a month of treatment with human CBD, founder Chelsea began Honest Paws.
Today, the company offers organic, non-GMO, soy-free, and lab-tested CBD oil, and differentiates itself from other brands by paying close attention to the terpene profile of its products. Normally reserved for the human market, terpenes are aromatic compounds that give cannabis and other plants their distinctive smells and flavors – think pine trees and citrus fruits.
Beyond their smell, most cannabis experts believe that terpenes have an added therapeutic effect, modifying the benefits of CBD strains.
In line with this, Honest Paws have developed several different cannabis extractions for different dog needs.
