Pet Releaf CBD Hemp Oil Facts

Pet Releaf CBD Hemp Oil facts:

Derived from the whole plant

CBD Hemp Oil facts are undeniable  Study after study has shown the importance of the “entourage effect” as Dr. Sanjay Gupta has called it whereby the entire range of the plant’s compounds are necessary to provide the maximum health benefits. Pet Releaf CBD Hemp oil uses the whole hemp plant where these necessary compounds are found. Many companies offering CBD products are using “isolates” which are essentially single-molecule, CBD only granules. These isolate forms of CBD are almost exclusively produced by companies who source their hemp from China.

Made from hemp grown at the largest certified USDA organic hemp farm in the United States

100% of our hemp is grown at the largest certified USDA organic farm in the United States. At Pet Releaf, it is company policy to NEVER use anything whatsoever in our products that is grown, made or produced in China. Yes, CBD from Chinese hemp would be significantly cheaper, but the problem is that a very high percentage of Chinese hemp is planted in fields that have contaminants, heavy metals and pollutants. Chinese hemp is literally used to “clean” the soil of these toxic elements so they can attempt to use those fields for food-based farming.

Extracted using super critical CO2 fluid extraction technology

Our proprietary method for extracting the CBD hemp oil uses carbon dioxide under extremely high pressure (over 10,000 psi) and very low temperatures. This is a highly technical process and involves very expensive equipment. At Pet Releaf, the additional cost is worth it because it provides completely pure, highly concentrated oil and does not harm the precious enzymes, cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids. Other companies use butane, ethanol, or other toxic solvent based extraction methods because it is significantly cheaper, easier to implement, and does not require expensive equipment.

Completely legal and does not require a prescription

Our hemp is grown in the United States and has an undetectable level of THC at 0.1%, making it below the national legal limit of 0.3%, therefore our product can be purchased in all 50 states. Our CBD hemp oil is NOT made from the federally illegal marijuana plant. Further, our oil is completely natural and does NOT require any prescription or recommendation from your vet.

Safe and Non-psychoactive

Since our CBD hemp oil is 100% natural, it is completely safe for your pets. Pet Releaf CBD hemp oil also has no psychoactive properties so it will not get your pets “high”. Dogs and cats lack the ability to effectively metabolize THC – the psychoactive element in the marijuana plant. It can be very dangerous to give your pet anything containing any psychoactive levels of THC, such as medical marijuana products now being sold in much of the United States.

Excellent source of plant based protein and essential fatty acids

The hemp plant is quickly being added to many “superfood” lists. By using the whole plant including the seeds, Pet Releaf CBD hemp oil provides these numerous health benefits. Hemp is one of Nature’s best sources of plant-based protein. Unlike soy, hemp does not contain enzyme inhibitors and phytates, so the full range of 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids are easily absorbed into the body. The hemp plant also contains significant amounts of essential fatty acids – Omega 3 and Omega 6 – in a 1:4 ratio which is touted by major health organizations as the magic ratio for healthy benefits. Hemp also contains the Super Omegas – Stearidonic Acid (SDA) and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).
