Our team here at Dr.Hempdog has helped thousands of animals throughout the years, so we are proud to share those experiences through these articles, alongside the science, research, and clinical trials to back it up. These resources will walk you through the basic science of how and why our products work for animals. Each article contains all the appropriate links to everything you'd want to know about cannabinoids.
You’ve likely heard of common cannabinoids like CBD and THC, but did you know that there are dozens of other cannabinoids in hemp that can be extremely helpful for animals as well? In this article, we’ll walk you through some of the most significant secondary cannabinoids in hemp and what the science says about how they could help dogs suffering from inflammation, pain, anxiety, seizures, and even cancer.
Did you know that CBD is most potent when used alongside certain other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that occur in hemp (which are often lost in extraction)? This synergy between various hemp compounds is known as “the entourage effect,” which studies show to be one of the primary reasons why full-spectrum CBD is so effective for dogs, as opposed to the more widely found broad-spectrum and isolate CBD products. Below, we’ll break down the science behind the entourage effect, why you’d want to use full-spectrum CBD products for your animals over broad-spectrum or isolates, and how to identify a superior full-spectrum CBD product.
