Understanding the power of CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. When it enters a mammal’s body, it activates a system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), triggering receptors from the nervous system to the digestive system that activate the self-healing process. In other words: the body is able to tell the brain exactly where it needs assistance.

How is CBD different from THC?

Hemp is differentiated from marijuana by the level of THC (a cannabinoid that contains psychoactive properties) that it contains. Hemp-derived Cannabinoids contain a maximum of 0.3 percent THC, so animals will not get high from consumption of hemp derived Cannabidiol (CBD) products.

What are the benefits of CBD for pets?

By utilizing the entire hemp plant (extracting the oil using a supercritical CO2 method), sourcing organic whenever possible, and making sure that every single ingredient serves a functional purpose, we have created human-grade products that help animals in a myriad of ways including calming, mobility, long-term health, digestion, and soothing external irritation.
