What is CBD?

What is Full Spectrum CBD?

{from our resident dog whisperers}

You might have heard the terms CBD oil for dogs, CBD extract, hemp extract, or cannabis oil used interchangeably. For the most part, these all refer to one thing: Cannabidiol (CBD). Our company uses full spectrum hemp extract (CBD) which is not only safe, but effective.

CBD is the most prominent naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in the hemp plant, constituting up to 40% of the plant. Our CBD oil for pets is organically grown in the U.S. and is extracted using the CO2 method: meaning that our product does not contain chemical solvents like alcohol or butane (lighter fluid). CBD Dog Health’s hemp oil is extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant and has a full spectrum of cannabinoids (natural compounds and terpenes). Full spectrum extract from hemp plant is extremely high in CBD and low in THC — less than 0.3%, in fact. Which means your pet gets all the benefits without the psychoactive effects of THC. (I.E. Your dog will NOT get “high”.)

Clinical tests from Colorado State University show that full spectrum hemp extract (CBD) is safe, non-addictive, and impossible on which to overdose. There have also been studies conducted on using CBD as treatment for dogs which found that CBD can be an effective treatment without harmful side effects.

While current FDA regulations prohibit us from making any claims about our CBD hemp oil for cats, dogs, and other pets’ benefits, we can tell you that our hemp oil is non-synthetic. This means it is a natural constituent of high-CBD hemp oil for cats and dogs.

The BIG Question : Is it legal?

The short answer? Yes. That is because hemp is legal in all 50 states.

Hemp is different from marijuana because it has a lower amount of THC (the psychoactive compound associated with feeling “high”). While both hemp and marijuana are part of the cannabis plant family, hemp has less than 0.3% THC, but has larger quantities of other effective compounds (called cannabinoids), like CBD. Our CBD-rich full spectrum hemp extract comes from carefully cultivated high-CBD hemp plants, which is why we are able to legally grow, manufacture, and sell our products. Our products contain only trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). For reference, most recreational cannabis plants have between 5% to over 20% THC.

We encourage you to talk with your holistic veterinarian about CBD-rich hemp oil. You can learn more about the uses for hemp CBD oil from the many independent, peer-reviewed studies available at www.projectcbd.org.

CBD + The Endocannabinoid System

Here's the deal :

The endocannabinoid system has existed in almost every living organism from humans to animals and even some insects for millions of years. This universal system’s overall function is to regulate homeostasis within the body.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is created through the endocannabinoid system, making it one of the most naturally occurring chemicals within the human body. If you were breastfed as a child, that was most likely the last time you consumed CBD. CBD provides communication between varying types of cells within our bodies. These communications regulate certain cells to act in defense of the body. For example, if you are injured, CBD helps instruct cells on how to handle the injury.

Cannabis Hemp 101

The hemp plant has been used since the beginning of the agricultural revolution. The hemp plant can make everything from fiber, food, and fuel, to energy and an estimated 50,000 other products, making it one of the most versatile plants in the world.

THC levels in the hemp plant are so low that it is impossible to use any part of the plant as a psychoactive drug. CBD is the predominant compound within the hemp plant, while the presence of THC is almost nonexistent. This allows for CBD to be extracted from the hemp plant, which is legal in all 50 states, so long as it is lab-tested to ensure purity. There is no “high” associated with using CBD hemp products.
