We Are Rocky Mountain Girls.
Co-Founders Dawn and Misty established Rocky Mountain Girls Hemp to share the amazing properties that broad and full spectrum hemp derived CBD oil can unleash within people and animals world-wide. Humble intentions to improve their own horse’s quality of life, and of those in their community, has launched them into an arena of CBD products for People, Pets, and Equine. The “magical” results speak for themselves!
“We are passionate about the natural healing and balance hemp can provide the body. We are so blessed to be making a difference in peoples’ lives and taking part in the CBD movement!“
Rocky Mountain Girls Hemp products contain the highest quality Phytocannabinoid Rich Oils (PCR) in Balms, Tinctures, and 12 & 32 mg softgels; Water Soluble PCR in Concentrated 25 mg Softgels & Soft Hemp Dog Chews; and Hemp Meal in Equine Hemp Pellets. Beginning with roots in American soil, our organically grown hemp is nurtured and harvested, extracted, purified, packaged, and tested here in the State of Colorado. The extraction processes of CO2 and ethanol are both used interchangeably and produce the same highest quality end results, being gentle enough to preserve the efficacy of major & minor cannabinoids, plus a full terpene profile. We love offering products that have additional health benefits of the plant parts synergistically working together (versus a CBD isolate, though powerful, only contains the cannabinoid, Cannabidiol (CBD)). Rocky Mountain Girls products are lab tested; results guarantee they are free of heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals, solvents, residues, and mold. Rest assured, our products are developed with you and your pet’s health in mind.
“We love to hear from our customers… Your journey to health and or recovery (people and pets) makes our day! We want each customer to experience the power and compassion of our hemp-derived products.”
I have been accused of being too serious, but that comes from a heart that wants to help people and animals however I can! I’m passionate about God, my family, animals, art, all things entrepreneurial, health and fitness.
My brilliant and humorous husband, Dan, keeps us laughing and exploring new entrepreneurial adventures. In 2012, he led our caravan of U-hauls and cars loaded with our two wonderful daughters, Fallon, and Farra Bella,… 3 dogs, 3 cats, fish-in-bowl, and a set of parents, leaving behind our hometowns of St. Louis, MO, in-route to Colorado Springs, CO. We love living in Colorado and Colorado loves homeschooling families too! We are a family of entrepreneurs and when you grow up in one you can’t help but to see through that lens. When we became “believers” in CBD for horses by the “magical” results we witnessed with my little Arabian, Angel, it was natural to start Rocky Mountain Girls Hemp Products with my friend Misty, who was having “magical” results with her old Appy, Scooby….. and so we began sharing the good news!
My 10 year old heart was captured by a magical mare, Pearl. My Dad had given my sisters and I each a horse! My dreams ran wild as she allowed me to capture her by climbing onto her back from a fence post. There were no lessons or a saddle, but I did have her, a brush, and a halter tied with a rope! My fairytale didn’t last but a few years and through circumstance our horses were given away. I never dreamed that God would restore the equine dreams of my childhood, but He has, and so much more. We are grateful to now have a herd of them!
What do you do when your 4 year old asks you to homeschool her, and you need to first see if people even do that!? That was a long time ago, and it took a few years for me to believe that I could, and so began our homeschool journey. It’s not for every family, but we love the time spent together! There is rich wisdom whispered from the hearts of children if we can hear through the complexities of life. When the girls were 1 and 7, God spoke into my heart that they would be my greatest inspiration. If it weren’t for Fallon and Farra, I wouldn’t have opened the door to play with horses again, but I did for them, and what an adventure we have begun… a herd of horses + 2 fillies later!…we are having the time of our life!
My life’s driving force, other than Dan and our girls, (and horses!), is the exciting and life changing power of the Holy Spirit! I was baptized with the Holy Spirit and fire over 17 years ago…maybe you are wondering…??…what’s that?! Jesus is doing the baptizing. John the Baptist said He (Jesus) would baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire! The first thing the power of the Holy Spirit did in my life was reveal the magnitude of the love God has for me, for all people. This was on a level I could not comprehend on my own. I believe God has a plan and a calling for each person if they want to know, and He will equip you to walk in it. He ignited within me a spiritual fire for healing that I can’t put out! I love to pray for people and animals for healing, and I believe God wants you well, has good plans for you, and wants to prosper you too. It is a great opportunity placed before me, fulfilling a desire to see wholeness restored in the lives of people and pets; through faith in Jesus’ finished work in the atonement, and through compassionate products designed with life in mind. We are meant to be healthy, spirit, soul, and body.
Be well in your journey,
Growing up in Montana surrounded by dogs, horses, and other animals cultivated an affinity for all things equestrian at a young age. My days were spent riding bareback, romping through fields and discovering mountainsides with friends.
A few years after graduating High School, I joined the US Navy in 2006, and began a new adventure on my own. I found myself face to face with this handsome and intriguing fellow Sailor, Christopher Arellano! Five years later we were married at the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, CO. We built a not-so-small family, sharing 4 beautiful children. We had served 6 honorable years in the Navy when Chris and I decided it was time to live on the civilian side. With the promise of owning horses in our future, we made our way back to Colorado Springs (where Chris’ family resides) in 2013.
Colorado is a horse loving state and it wasn’t long before horses came flooding back into my life. Through a friend, we met Rayne, a sweet little Arabian brood mare, at DreamCatchers Equine Rescue. She became our first rescue and will be treasured in our household for all of her days. You can’t just have one! So, numbers grew over the years into quite a little herd of our own. We are Blessed to live on a beautiful ranch, just south of Colorado Springs, with our humble herd, dogs, and barn cats (okay, okay. . .one cat lives inside and another has house visiting privileges).
After transplanting to Colorado, I devoted my life to training horses for several years. My passion lies in rescue horses in need of rehabilitation and a second chance to learn, or a first chance to learn. Many of our own horses have been adopted from rescues. Though I no longer train, I personally, and through Rocky Mountain Girls Hemp Products, work with several rescues to help horses find their forever homes. We host horses from three different rescues here at the ranch, providing them with a safe place to land for a while (and lots of tender loving care). Through the daily care of these special horses, the whole family gets to intimately know them. It is truly a magical place; horses transform here. We erase their past and help them rewrite their own fairytale. One of my rescue tales is of Scooby, my old Appy gelding, who (paired with Dawn’s Arab Angel), helped launch the heart of Rocky Mountain Girls Hemp Products. He was severely arthritic (you have to watch the video of him before RMG hemp pellets). Scooby’s life has also led us to begin a partnership with Safe Landing Horse Rescue, opening sanctuary gates to older horses (some blind) for comfort, love and dignity for the rest of their days. The kids just adore wise old Equine. . . and WE can’t get enough of them! These oldies sure let the kids know they know them, whether they can see or not! We love to imagine what grand adventures they may have had in their long lives, and we whisper daily to each one. . . telling them how amazing they are how glad we are they are here.
The Arellano’s are a homeschooling family. We love the time it allows for us to all spend together every day. Together we learn, play, and PRAY! Above all we value the Lord and count every blessing in our lives!
I have always felt that God instilled this passion for horses into my heart for a reason… a greater purpose. I truly believe my life experiences have led me to what is now Rocky Mountain Girls Hemp Products! I am beyond excited to share the healing benefits of CBD with the world! And am so thankful my friend Dawn, convinced me to join her on this wild CBD journey! Our lives and health have been forever changed!
Be well in your journey,
