      HOW THC ENHANCES FULL-SPECTRUM HEMP PRODUCTS (WITHOUT A “HIGH”)

      Studies show that “full-spectrum” CBD (i.e. CBD products that contain trace amounts of THC, but not more than 0.3%) is the most effective type of CBD product, as THC is proven to be both entirely safe and extremely beneficial for dogs in the right amounts.

      In this article, we’ll break down the scientific evidence behind THC’s safety profile and potential benefits, followed by a short primer on how to identify high-quality full-spectrum products using lab work.

At first glance, COAs may seem overwhelming, but we’ll show you how you can easily read them to learn everything you need to know about the product in a matter of minutes.3-Minute Read

      WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT AND WHY IS IT CRUCIAL TO USING CANNABINOIDS SUCCESSFULLY?

      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.4-Minute Read
