What is CBD?

Cannabidiol is an active ingredient found in cannabis plants. Cannabis plants are classified as industrial hemp or marijuana based on the amount of THC present. Hemp strains are low in THC (0.3% or less), but high in CBD, whereas marijuana strains can have 20-30% THC. Our CBD products come from industrial hemp plants. Unlike THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive substituent of cannabis, so it will not get you “high”, but it does show some promise for treating certain medical conditions. When taken regularly, CBD may help with conditions such as inflammation, anxiety, pain, and more.

Types of CBD Products

CBD Products can be taken:

  • Sublingually: CBD oil tinctures- Place under tongue to increase the CBD potency because it will be directly absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Orally: Edibles, capsules, CBD oil- Can be eaten or swallowed
  • Topically: Salves, balms, creams, etc.- Applied directly to the skin for targeted relief
  • Vaporized/smoked: Vape pen- Heated and inhaled typically through a vaporizer

CBD Dosing

Before adding hemp extract oil to your regimen, as with any supplement, be sure to check with your doctor to make sure that it’s a good choice for you. This is especially true if you are taking certain anti-seizure medications.

Hemp extract oil can be safely consumed in a myriad of ways: tinctures, topicals, capsules or sublinguals. When taking CBD, always follow the instructions on the package of the product you have purchased.  If you are new to CBD, a good starting dosage is 15-40 mg per day of active CBD ingredient. CBD impacts people differently – some adjustment might be necessary. Always take CBD products for a few days to receive maximum benefit.

Given the fact that each pet is different, (ie. Different temperament, metabolism, weight, etc.) these dosing instructions are strictly a set of guidelines or suggestions that will help you find the appropriate dosing for your pet. If you have any concerns, always consult with your veterinarian before beginning a CBD regimen.

Give orally or apply directly to food. Can be administered every 8 hours or twice a day as needed. Start with a lower dose and monitor pet's behavior. Results should be seen within an hour.
