Welcome and thank you so much for your interest in our story and line of premium, all-natural, organic, CBD products! Here at The Cats Meow CBD, we are so confident and excited about our extensive selection of hemp-derived CBD products, and we hope they will provide you with as much benefit and relief as they have given us and our families.
I would love to introduce myself to you and share the story of how The Cats Meow CBD was created. My name is Heather and I am the Founder and CEO of The Cats Meow CBD. I am a Functional Medicine Practitioner that understands the value of CBD and the endocannabinoid system in a world that relies so heavily on over the counter anti-inflammatories and opioids that are destroying our health. My passion is helping people reach optimal wellness.
I am excited to share how my journey into CBD unfolded for you, as it is truly a blessing to me to be able to do what I love. This company not only allows me the opportunity to help others experience relief from their symptoms but also enables me to help educate on CBD in a space that so desperately needs it.
In 2017 I was searching for a CBD product for my 10 year old rabbit Dwiggins and his dog sister Mia.
Dwiggins suffered many health challenges throughout his life and I wanted something to help give him a few comfortable remaining years. Mia had a history of seizures and I wanted to avoid a “zoned out” dog on Phenobarbital. With a history of chronic pain myself (Fibromyalgia, Chronic Lyme etc.), I figured CBD could help me as well. I remember buying a bottle of CBD and putting it in my refrigerator (because it said to refrigerate???). Taking it out one day, I started reading the bottle. I was curious. Nowhere on the bottle did it say how much CBD was actually in it???
And so started my journey...
I had a client who’s husband had stopped at a Farmers Market in California and picked her up some CBD and I told her I would research the brand for her. In doing so, I discovered it was a pretty good product, and decided to start carrying it in my practice. I had asked my vet about CBD use in rabbits and she told me that there wasn’t much research but to go ahead and try it and report back! Off I went! Dwiggins and Mia did so well on CBD. I became a believer! Dwiggins would not have had the quality of life he had in his remaining years had it not been for CBD. In the last year of his life he was, in fact, using our product. Dwiggins passed away in June of 2018 but I am forever grateful for what CBD did for him.
I don’t really have a grand story about how The Cats Meow CBD was started. This question is posed to me all the time. The truth is it started one night in my living room. I said “we should start a CBD company and call it The Cats Meow CBD.” Anti-climactic, I know! Anyone that knows me knows that once I get an idea in my head there’s no holding me back. Off I went to create my new company! If you had told me five years ago I’d be running a CBD company and loving every minute of it I would have laughed at you!
The Cats Meow CBD was created in New Mexico but we relocated to Round Rock Texas in 2019. From the start, our mission has been to bring to light the amazing benefits CBD can provide to the WHOLE family.
There is a lot of miseducation around CBD. I am passionate about educating our customers on CBD because I think so many people are confused or misinformed. What I have found is that a lot of people are hesitant to explore CBD because they feel they just don’t know enough about it. Our company seeks to educate our customers on the health benefits of CBD but also why quality matters. If we can educate around what CBD is and isn’t I believe a lot of the stigma around it can be eliminated. We have come a long way but we do still have a long way to go.
As a Functional Medicine Practitioner, my product standards are high. It is a true oxymoron to have chemicals or synthetic ingredients in a product that is supposed to be aimed at improving your health. We have never sacrificed quality for cost. And we have never carried anything that we would not be willing to use ourselves or with our families. Those standards will not change.
Our products are organic, non-GMO, gluten free, artificial flavoring and coloring free, solvent and metal free and of the highest quality. Most of our products are vegan as well. All our products are non-psychoactive with under the legal limit of .03% THC or THC free, making them legal in ALL 50 states. Our hemp is organically grown at a farm in Colorado and handcrafted in Round Rock. The lab we use is independent from the farm, providing a true third party analysis of our product. For our bath and some of our body products, we have partnered with a company on the East Coast that meets our very stringent guidelines.
The Cats Meow CBD participates in many events locally and have been so blessed by the welcome we have received here in Texas. All of the proceeds from our event raffles go to House Resource Rabbit Network in Pflugerville, TX, a non-profit rabbit rescue. We are truly blessed to be able to give back to our community.
