CBD – It’s All in the Family!
CBD/hemp oil and other products have become commonplace around our house, for dog and humans alike! (The oils we use do not get us “high”, the hemp used does not have the psychoactive properties that medical marijuana does.) We’ve found & tried several brands that I’ve liked, but I am always open to trying different companies, as long as I can be assured that the hemp is grown in the USA, and the products are made here as well.

Colorado seems to be the hot spot and that is true in the case of the products we recently tried from 43CBD, a company that is focused on healthy living for the whole family! They are based in Durango, Colorado and the hemp is grown in tested soil and water. Each batch of products is tested for quality as well; with the lab results available on their website to see.
Important as well to me, their farmers use natural practices, zero pesticides, and other ingredients are non-GMO and organic too.
For My Dog Luke
CBD/hemp has become important in Luke’s world to help curb his anxieties and benefit his joints as well. While I can’t say that CBD oil calms Luke down completely, I notice a difference in his stress level when I stop using it. Winter is a tough time for Luke’s bad knees. Even though we are coming out of winter now, we are still getting snow! Just the other day he slipped in snow on the stairs and his knee popped out. Fortunately, he was able to right it almost immediately. I hold my breath every time that happens, so worried that one day the knee won’t pop back in!
One thing I really like about the 43CBD oil for For Furry Friends is that they blend the full spectrum hemp oil with anchovy oil that is sustainably harvested! Anchovy oil is something I often give to Luke for joint health, but this is the first time I’ve seen it in a CBD oil.
For the Dog Mom
I use CBD oil for myself as well. I also use it to curb my own anxieties. In addition, it can help with pain relief. When I have a bad migraine, I take CBD oil along with an over the counter NSAID. I really feel like the CBD oil gives the medication a boost that helps alleviate my headache more quickly.
43CBD has oils for humans that come in flavors as well! Most of the CBD I’ve taken before is mixed with olive oil, and that’s fine (I don’t like olives though, so don’t love the taste!), so I like their options of cinnamon, peppermint, and even pumpkin spice flavors too!
As seen in the above photo, I also got a sample of their deep tissue salve (they have several types of salve to choose from). I was excited to try that since I’d been having some shoulder pain from my tendinitis. As it turned out, by the time I received the salve I wasn’t having much shoulder pain, but I did pull a muscle in my neck, so I was able to try the salve for that! It felt so good when I rubbed it in, and the scent of camphor oil, menthol, and eucalyptus along with the hemp oil was wonderful! Neck pain also comes with and aggravates my migraines, so it’s important to me to alleviate that as much as possible, and the salve helped.
Natural remedies like CBD don’t always work for everyone – dog or human. We are lucky to be able to see it’s benefits, but if you don’t, 43CBD is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. You can visit their website through our affiliate links below if you’d like to give it a try for your dog or for yourself! I think we can all agree that in these times we need to think about our health, and especially about alleviating stress.
You can currently get $10 off a bottle of the Furry Friends formula by using the code “furryfriends” (click on code or banner below to use link). We hope it can help your family as well!
Thank you for sharing! I will check it out!
Glad you found something that works for you. None of us need CBD, but since we’re in California, it’s plentiful if we ever do!
You are in the right place! I am starting to see it more in our neighboring state, Vermont, but so far the local products seem to be a lot more expensive.
CBD helps me sleep better…which is wonderful:)
Maybe that would help Dalton with some of his crazy anxiety redden behaviors…like trying to bark dad every day when he crosses his paths, or goes out to his car or the garbage bin…let alone the lawnmower which soon will come out of the shed…
And Benji from barking at all the passing by trucks…or digging up our whole yard in search of moles and mice.
That is great! I originally tried CBD for help in sleeping, but for me it didn’t help with that.
I’m afraid it doesn’t help Luke with barking at every person that walks by our house, or at the TV! But it has different benefits for everyone, so still might be worth a try with Dalton and Benji. ♥

We depend on our CBD to keep Bentley calm during thunderstorms and fireworks. It has been life-changing for us. I do use a homeopathic ointment on my arthritic knees. I swear it works miracles for me.
That is so great, that it works for your family too! Luke’s worse thing is our neighbors target shooting, I think they are home more doing it now. The CBD oil helps him with that. Strangely, last year we had very few thunderstorms, not sure what this year will bring and how much those will bother him either. I’m glad to have this on hand in case.

CBD can be helpful…but there’s so many brands out there. It’s important to do your homework and get a reputable one. Thanks for this info!
You are absolutely right about that!!
Ellen Pilch says
CBD is amazing stuff. My hubby uses a cream when his knee arthritis bothers him.
That is great!!
Brian Frum says
They sure sound like they are a good company. I tried CBD for my pee pain problem but it made me mean so I had to stop using it.
That’s too bad it didn’t work for you, Brian, but we think you found other things that work (without making you mean!), right? Hope you are still doing better with that issue.
Ducky’s Mom says
WOW! Ducky hasn’t even finished her first bottle of the last CBD joint support supplements you recommended, and here you are talking about another brand. 🤣
I’m hard to keep up with, right? 🙂
JoAnn Stancer says
I’m glad this product works for you too. Different flavors too I didn’t know that. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
You’re welcome!! ♥
I need to look into this. As I get older I have aches and pains and I don’t like it.
Have a fabulous day and weekend. Smooches to Luke. ♥
Aging is so tough, we need to do whatever we can to make it easier. ♥
Mary Hone says
CBD helps Roxy so much. At this stage in her life she lots of aches, and pains.
I am so glad it is helping Roxy. I wish I’d had it when our girls were aging too. ♥
we would like to try it… it maybe would help to make special moments easier for us and the pups…
Is it available over there? I hope so!
We don’t really need it around here. We have some for Bailie when she travels, but Mom has decided to not travel with her anymore because of her anxiety. On shorter car rides we don’t use it. Glad it helps out you and Luke. Hopefully his knee will keep in there where it belongs.
We hope so too! Winter is always the toughest time, so things should be better soon. We think your Mom made the best decision for Bailie, sometimes avoidance of situations that are scary for them is just the way to go.
We need to check this out. Mom had a migraine yesterday that didn’t want to quit.
I’m sorry your Mom suffers from migraines as well, Molly. I am always trying different natural products, because I couldn’t tolerate the side effects from the medications I’ve tried. I hope your Mom has some luck finding things too, and maybe the CBD can help her as well. ♥
