What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural, non-nutritional remedy for pain management, anxiety, arthritis, epilepsy, inflammation, cancer symptoms, gastro-intestinal tract issues, nausea and other kinds of physical or emotional pain. It’s also used as a neuroprotectant to protect the brain’s neuron structure and function.

Research shows that full spectrum CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and significantly boosts the immune system. Some research suggests that, without full spectrum CBD being consumed on a regular basis, mammals cannot reach optimal levels of health.

How does it work?

Mammals have an endocannabinoid system that regulates sleep, immune-system response and pain. This endocannabinoid system has receptors all over the body, and it works to keep the body functioning at a stable internal level.

When CBD enters a mammal’s body, it naturally stimulates the endocannabinoid system and enhances communication between the brain and receptors throughout the body.

Where does CBD come from?

CBD comes from the hemp plant, which is in the cannabis plant family.

What is cannabis?

Like citrus is a family of fruits, cannabis is a family of plants. The most widely recognized plants from the cannabis family are hemp and marijuana. Like lemons and oranges, hemp and marijuana are in the same plant family and have significantly different properties.

A key difference between hemp and marijuana is the levels of CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) chemicals naturally found in each plant. THC has psychoactive properties and causes a euphoric “high.” CBD encourages the body to use its endocannabinoid system more effectively, and it is not a psychoactive.

Marijuana has high THC and low CBD, while hemp has very low THC and high CBD. To be sold nationally, CBD must have indiscernible levels of THC, less than 0.03%.

Does CBD have any side effects?

CBD can calm the body and provide pain-relieving sensations. CBD is sold at many veterinarian offices, and is a way to manage pet discomfort.

Ask your veterinarian before adding it to your pet’s routine. Always responsibly give CBD products to your pets.

How can I give CBD to my pet?

We offer CBD oil, pills, ointment and treats. Depending on the type of CBD oil, give the oil directly to your pet or add it to your pet’s food. Pills are available for dogs over 80 lbs. Ointments with CBD are a topical way to soothe pain or soften paws or noses. Use CBD treats while away from home, in higher-stress situation or as a part of your pet’s routine.

How much does my pet need?

Dosage is based on weight and your pet’s condition. Always start at the recommended usage and increase as needed.

Can I give CBD to my pet with food?

For most CBD products, instructions recommend waiting at least 15 minutes before and after mealtime before giving a pet CBD. Giving CBD to your pet outside of mealtime helps the body absorb it. You can add some CBD products directly to food and still retain its benefits.

Follow instructions on product for maximum effectiveness.

Is there CBD for cats?

Yes! We carry CBD supplements specifically formulated for cats.

Can my healthy pet use CBD?

Absolutely! It’s considered preventative for many issues because it’s an anti-inflammatory. Reducing inflammation helps the body maintain peak physical health and guard against diseases that cause inflammation.

As always, talk with your veterinarian if you have concerns about your pet’s health.
