Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is probably the best-known thanks to its psychoactive properties -- it's the one that gets you "high" -- but CBD is quickly gaining ground due to its potential therapeutic benefits. CBD does not contain enough THC to have any psychoactive effects (less than 0.3%)
What is CBD oil?
Different cannabis plants — often called hemp— contain different levels of chemical compounds.
How people breed the plant affects the CBD levels. Our CBD oils come from industrial hemp.
Makers of CBD oil use different methods to extract the compound. The extract is then added to a carrier oil and called CBD oil.
CBD oil comes in many different strengths, and people use it in various ways.
What Does Full Spectrum Mean?
Full spectrum CBD oil, as its name suggests, contains all the cannabinoids found within the source cannabis plant. It contains powerful cannabinoids like Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabicyclol (CBL), and Cannabichromevarinic Acid (CBCVA). All these cannabinoids work together to give animals greater relief and provide more substantial results. Full spectrum CBD reacts differently with the endocannabinoid system, this reaction is also referred to as the "entourage effect."
The benefits of CBD oil:
- Stress/ anxiety
- Aches and pains (arthritis, hip dysplasia, etc.)
- Symptoms of cancer
- Increases appetite
- Gastrointestinal issues
- No life-threatening side-effects in comparison to conventional pet pain-management medication
- Not in a sedated state
- Less stress on the liver and kidneys
Differences Between Drops and Treats
- Drops make it easier to adjust the mg/ml amount administered to the pet.
- Treats are better for dogs that do not appreciate hands near their mouth and are very treat motivated.
- On the flip side, if you have a dog who does not like treats then it would make more sense to administer CBD in oil form.
- If the pet has a lot of different allergies and sensitivities the oil would be better because you can avoid the inactive ingredients that make up a biscuit.
