About Us

Supporting Mellow Mammals means supporting a family... not a shareholder!

The Mellow Mammals family


My name is Garrick Cline and I am the founder of Mellow Mammals, a veteran-led, family-owned small business that focuses on all-natural, hemp derived, health solutions for the mammals in your life. Mellow Mammals was founded in 2018 to provide the highest quality CBD products possible to pets across the Chicagoland area and beyond. A true family business, everyone pitches in to help out at local expos, packing and shipping orders and more when needed.

Building this business is no easy task either... I currently work a full-time labor job, my wife Christina is a professor at a local university and is perusing a PhD in anatomical sciences, we have four children at home, three children that are adults and three grandchildren. The entire family is working to build this business because we believe in the health benefits of CBD for pets and we want your pet to live a healthier, happier and calmer life.


We believe pets are more than just animal companions... we believe they are part of your family! At Mellow Mammals, we are "pet's before profits" and we want to prove that to you.

“At Mellow Mammals, we are pet parents too. We understand the pain of watching an animal suffer from an injury, illness, or stress. That’s why we create all-natural, hemp-derived cannabinoid products, so every animal can live a healthier, happier and calmer life.”

We look after our dog, “Buddy” and our cat, “Max" as if they are family, because they are.  We understand that the time we have with them is limited and we want them to be as happy, healthy, and calm as they can be for the time that we have together.  That's why we are so passionate about Cannabidiol (CBD) and the potential health benefits it has for all animals, furry and not.  When we learned about the incredible things CBD was doing for people and animals, we knew we had to be a part of it.

We decided right from the start that we are going to do things differently than other CBD brands. Your pet deserves honesty, integrity, safety and quality and we are going to provide that. To honor that commitment, we've built our business on a set of values that were taught to our founder, Garrick Cline, when he served in the United States Army. Our business is built upon the LDRSHIP principle and that ensures we live by a set of standards that are simply above the rest of the CBD brands out there.

We have sought out local and national hemp farms that practice organic growing methods and adhere to the strict FDA and USDA guidelines for hemp safety. These are often small, family-owned and operated farms that are perfect for us because we can develop lasting relationships with them, visit them, see the plants and inspect the fields.  We know exactly where our hemp comes from and the conditions it was grown in.

Next, because you and your pet deserve quality, we sought out and partnered with the largest hemp manufactures in the country. This is important because our manufacturing partners are registered with the FDA, are inspected on a regular basis, follow GMP guidelines and have years of experience in the hemp and CBD space. If you want to be the best, partner with the best... and that is what Mellow Mammals has done.

Our products are created using the whole hemp plant, not just seeds and stalks.  This is important because too many so-called CBD products are made only from hemp seed oil and not CBD.  Our products start with an extract from the entire hemp plant which contains all the terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids present, including CBD. We then have our lab remove the THC while leaving all the other goodies... This broad-spectrum hemp extract is then used to create our proprietary blends that eventually become our line of products. 

The FDA prohibits us, (and all CBD brands), from making any specific health claims for the use of our products but, we encourage you to do your own research prior to purchasing a CBD product from us or anyone else.  Curious about dosing or how long the product will last?  Check out our Dosage Calculator for suggested dosages.

We are excited about CBD and believe in the effects for all the mammals in our lives.  It is our hope you will come to agree with us.

From our family to you.. Thank you for checking us out!
