Angela Ardolino went looking for a product to treat her rheumatoid arthritis after reading about the side effects that come with prescription medications. She tried CBD oil, and it worked.
After realizing the benefit from CBD, Ardolino thought of trying CBD for her schnauzer, Odie. Odie also has arthritis, but when Ardolino went looking for something to treat him, she found nothing in the United States. So she started making her own.
Florida’s Amendment 2 legalized medical marijuana. Because of this, she was able to get a degree in CBD oil for use in treatment from the University of Vermont.

The K9 Cannapaws products design to boosts the immune system while decreasing inflammation and pain in dogs. However, the theory behind the science is still in testing.

Garde, a friend of Ardolino, has been giving her dogs drops of “calm” CBD oil before storms and has seen incredible results. Their shaking diminished, and his dog Oskar stopped barking during storms.
