Plant & Mushroom Medicine Educator, Formulator and Speaker

Angela Ardolino is a holistic pet expert who has been caring for animals for over 20 years. Angela owns and operates Fire Flake Farm, her animal rescue farm, as well as her two locations of a natural pet salon and shop, Beautify the Beast, and is founder of CBD Dog Health, which offers high quality, all-natural medical cannabis products designed specifically for pets and MycoDog, a line of mushroom extract and adaptogen tinctures for dogs.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Angela also founded the House of Alchemy, LLC, Miami Children’s Theater, and Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine. In 2013, Angela was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and knew that she needed to find alternatives to the toxic medications being offered to her. After hearing of the benefits of CBD oil and experiencing the life-changing results first hand, Angela set out to destigmatize medical cannabis and CBD oil so she could spread awareness around its holistic healing powers.

After Floridians voted to legalize medical cannabis in 2016, Angela sold Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine and hosted the Canna Conference, an educational event to bring together doctors, veterinarians and patients to learn about the positive effects of medical cannabis. During that time, Angela also earned a professional certification in Medical Cannabis for therapeutic use from the University of Vermont, College of Medicine. Since receiving her certification, Angela became active in Women Grow and United for Care, and became an advocate for safe, natural, ethically grown hemp and medical cannabis for human and animal use.

In addition to educating the pet community through her own podcast, Your Natural Dog, Angela has been a featured speaker at holistic and pet wellness seminars, expos, and joined many other holistic pet experts on their own podcasts. She is available for training and speaking engagements, and continues to share her knowledge and experience.

To see Angela on her rescue farm today, surrounded by animals, is to truly see her in her element. Looking at this furry, joyful family you would never suspect that Angela and her pets were once full of aches, pains and anxiety. Today, Angela is the mother to her pups Odie, Jolene, Maza, and Rhemi, as well as multiple ducks, roosters, chickens, geese, plus Penelope the pig, Brenda the one-legged pigeon, and of course the many dogs that she fosters from time-to-time at Fire Flake Farm.

Building The Team

While the government battled about growing hemp, Angela spent two years searching for ethical, safe hemp farmers in Colorado, where growing hemp was legal. She also spent that time finding trusted partners, sourcing the best hemp and essential oils, and building her team. In June 2018, with the passage of the Farm Bill, which legalized hemp farming in all 50 states, Angela was finally able to obtain safe, non-GMO hemp grown in the U.S. in Colorado and released CBD Dog Health products.

Angela and her team of experts, Hernando Umana and Carter Easler, travel all over the country with The Healing Naturally Tour, educating veterinarians and pet parents on the incredible benefits of cannabis medicine.
