THE SCIENCE — TERPENES
These resources will walk you through the basic science of how and why our products work for animals. Our team here at Dr.Hempdog has helped thousands of animals throughout the years, so we are proud to add our wisdom to these articles, alongside the science, research, and clinical trials to back it up. Each article is typically a 2-5 minute read (though some are a bit longer), and contains all the appropriate links to everything you'd want to know about cannabinoids.
As you integrate CBD and hemp products into your animal’s life, you’ll inevitably encounter a variety of obscure industry terms and scientific phrases that may seem confusing at first glance. To help you navigate the information out there, we’ve compiled this two-part resource detailing the CBD and hemp terminology you should know; we’ll start with a brief glossary of common terms, and then explain how to understand some of the more nuanced definitions you might come across.8-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
