Fireworks and CBD

If this image makes you dread the Fourth of July because your poor fur babies spend the days before and after trembling in fear, keep reading! This post is for you.

Mellow Fellow

CBD has anti-anxiety properties that work very well with canine chemistry. One client described the effect as making her guy a mellow fellow.

Another client said that her pup no longer hides in the bathtub during a storm and just rests comfortably.

Do your CBD treats make my dog high?

There are very big differences between the two strains of cannabis. Pet CBD (cannabidiol) oil supplements are extracted from industrial hemp (Sativa) plants which have high levels of CBD and virtually no THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties). Conversely, THC with levels large enough to produce a high is found in the marijuana strain, which contains very little CBD. CBD extracted from industrial hemp is legal in all states, but marijuana is still illegal in Texas.

This difference is crucial because THC can be toxic to dogs, but CBD is safe. Hemp CBD offers the calming your dog needs without the THC, so you can be assured that your dog won’t get high. Your dog will simply experience mild relaxation.

What’s the best way to give my pup CBD?

When considering CBD, most people think of CBD oil. Bottled CBD oils with droppers are good options because they make it easy to measure the right dose. You can give CBD oil directly in the mouth or add it to food or a treat.

The CBD oil I offer is is very effective and I recommend it for pups that need to take CBD every day.

Here is one stinking point. Since some CBD products have a “grassy” taste, if your pup is picky, you may want to consider my dog treats.

Dogs love the taste. I add coconut oil that also super beneficial for digestion and their skin. Treats remain in the freezer and are very easy to give.

CBD treats for dogs are convenient, and it’s likely that your pup will love them. However, they can get expensive if you have a large dog or if you’re planning on long-term use.

CBD Science

Why My Products Are Unique

I’ve tried CBD before and it didn’t work.

This is a very common complaint that I’ve heard from clients when contacting me. They’re skeptical. I can get it. 

I’ve been there and done that. Seeing CBD sold next to the cigarettes in the local convenience store or by the guy twirling a sign on the street corner does not give a huge boost of confidence in the product.

Here’s why my CBD is different

CBD degrades if it’s exposed to too much light, gets too warm, or is generally mistreated. Once a manufacturer creates their product, even under the best of circumstances, they cannot control what or how the post office or the store owner manages it. 

Simply Green Kitchen buys our CBD wholesale from a grower and lab in Colorado. I receive lab reports on each batch I buy from both the grower and independent lab showing me the purities of the tincture. 

Pesticides are never used on the crop and every plant is grown in the United States. 

What happens to the CBD when it arrives in Kingwood

My shipments are overnighted to my home. Immediately, I unpack, inspect and review the lab results. Then, the product is stored in a dark, temperature-controlled area of my home. 

The CBD that you or your beloved pet are taking is the highest quality and best preserved to ensure that you received the freshest products on the market. And you achieve and experience how life-changing CBD can be. 


About Me

How I Got Into CBD!

Simply Green Kitchen was founded on the belief that plants should be tried before pills! And it was founded in my kitchen and yes, I test everything on my friends, family, and furry babies!

A year ago, I enrolled in a program to become a certified medicinal marijuana and CBD practitioner. I was immensely interested in trying plants before pills to treat common ailments. Good enough for the ancient Chinese, hippies in California… Good enough for me!

How I got here

While on a trip to Colorado, I visited a dispensary. This is just after marijuana was legalized. The owner heard me asking questions to an employee and pulled me aside to share her wealth of knowledge. Frankly, it sounded too good to be true. My husband and I purchased a few products and left.

However, I couldn’t quit thinking about my conversation which led me down many a rabbit holes on the Internet. While we were rebuilding our home from the Harvey flood, my husband and I used CBD cream on our aching backs and other joints. Surprisingly, we both agreed that it worked! Then, I shared our bottle with a family member who also found needed relief.

We have a Golden Retriever named Bodhi Miller (the kids are obsessed with the Winter Olympics) that is deathly afraid of thunder/fireworks/car trips/the sound of the lawnmower. I made him homemade dog treats with CBD to help relax him through all of these highly traumatic events! And guess what, y’all! They worked!

My elderly rescue Lab mix had reached the point that she couldn’t jump in the truck to help my husband drive. After a CBD cookie treat a day, she can be his co-pilot again.

But I’m skeptical by nature

What truly made me a believer was when I received a chemical burn on my hands. A margarita burn is legit. Google it! I added CBD oil to Eucerin and my hands finally began healing. I literally have no scarring. The doctor who examined my hands right after the incident suggested a series of laser treatments once the skin had healed. No need.

Back to today

Simply Green Kitchen became an LLC in November 2020. The same pet treats that I give my scaredy-cat Golden Retriever and antique rescue Lab I sell to other furry friend’s parents. Overwhelmingly, I hear, “Carolanne, they work!” There’s a bit of awe in their voice and I love it.

We haven’t been in business for a year yet, and I’ve already hired my kids to help keep up with demand. My 12-year-old is the head chef and mathematician. He’s constantly running formulas in his head to help improve our efficiency.  My 15-year-old takes care of my social media and advertising. If you clicked on this, it’s because of her.

I’m attending continuing education classes to make sure that I am on the cutting edge of CBD research and how it can benefit you and your fur babies. I love that my clientele includes both the doggy mom/dad and the doggy. Talk about living the dream….
