Musician (and dog dad) Ziggy Marley launches CBD chews for your pet

Eight-time Grammy-winning artist Ziggy Marley – the eldest son of reggae legend Bob Marley – has just launched a vegan CBD wellness line for pets.

The musician has teamed up with botanical wellness brand One Farm to create the line called Ziggy Marley Apawthecary. The first product, Romeo’s Agility Chews, contains organic ingredients including shiitake mushrooms, cordyceps (a type of mushroom) and turmeric.

“Nature has always played a big role in my life,” says Marley. “I was attracted to One Farm because of the use of whole plant ingredients and their commitment to quality, sustainability and transparency.”

But Marley’s furry, four-legged companion also inspired him to make the line. Last year he welcomed Romeo into his household and the two forged an immediate bond. (The pooch even inspired Marley to write a children’s book called My Dog Romeo and a song of the same name.)

“When I play soccer almost every day, my knees have felt the effects over the years. When I saw how active Romeo was as a puppy, I knew I had to take care of his joint health now to avoid long-term problems, “explained Marley.

Romeo’s Agility Chews also contain five milligrams of One Farm’s organic CBD. The peanut butter flavored chews support the dog’s general mental and physical well-being and help fight inflammation.

Founded in 2017, One Farm carries a range of CBD-based products, including oils and powdered beverage additives. “I founded this company to sustainably share nature’s remedies to enrich people’s lives, and pet health and wellbeing are such an important aspect of people’s lives,” said Scott Cusack, CEO and Founder from One Farm.

Marley isn’t the only celebrity to have hugged the CBD room. Vegan musician Travis Barker’s CBD brand, Barker Wellness, launched a line for cats and dogs in April. The CBD animal tinctures, which are daily nutritional supplements, help reduce stress in pets. They also work to relieve joint and muscle discomfort, and can help improve overall mood.

Actress Kristen Bell also launched her own vegan CBD skin care brand Happy Dance in Ulta Beauty stores in the US earlier this year. The brand’s range of products includes bath bombs and body butters, all of which are infused with CBD.

Ziggy Marley Apawthecary has a number of other wellness products in the pipeline, including Romeo’s CBD oil. The oil will be available in topical form for anxiety relief and as a food additive to support hip and joint health.
