The Honest Vision

At Honest Paws, we envision a world where dogs, cats, and pets of all kind can live a happy, healthy life alongside their owners that is free of stress, joint stiffness, and other common ailments.

We envision a world where cannabis is recognized for the healing agent it is; a world where we use holistic medicine to treat the root cause and not the symptoms.

About Our Co-Founders

Chelsea Rivera

Chelsea Rivera graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Radio-Television-Film & and Advertising. Upon graduation, she moved to Los Angeles for an internship in digital content at Maker Studios. Having been a pet lover all her life, Chelsea combined her love of digital content and pets to co-found Honest Paws with her brother Erik. As Head of Content, Chelsea loves educating pet parents on holistic wellness. She currently lives with her dog, Baby Rose, in Atlanta.

Erik Rivera

Erik Rivera graduated from the United States Naval Academy and became an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Officer. After years of serving in the Navy, Erik embraced his entrepreneurial spirit and started his first internet business. After hearing about the success that his sister had with CBD for her dog, Erik co-founded Honest Paws and now serves as the CEO.

Our Mission

At Honest Paws, we believe pets are family. Our mission is to empower every pet owner to take charge of their pet’s health in a safe, effective, and holistic way.

We do this by offering premium CBD products for pets that promote relaxation, support healthy bones and joints, and aid sensitive skin. We want pet parents and their four-legged kids to live a happy and healthy life together.

Our Company History

When Chelsea’s dog, Baby Rose, was just a young pup, she started suffering from gut-wrenching seizures. Chelsea, determined to find a solution, searched for different options to help her best friend.

She noticed that anti-seizure medication often had very negative side effects that could likely cause other problems down the line. Not to mention, these medications were not guaranteed to work. Because of this, she dove into the world of holistic medicine. Her research led her to CBD. After a month of consistent use, Baby Rose’s seizures had completely stopped… and this is where it all began!

Chelsea believed there was an opportunity to empower other dog moms and pets parents to heal their best friends. This was the genesis of Honest Paws.
