      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

      IS IT LEGAL TO USE CBD FOR YOUR DOG? THE ANSWER IS YES! HERE'S THE CURRENT LAW AND THE HISTORY

      We’ve been in the CBD industry since the beginning, so we’ve heard (and answered) almost every question out there about the legality of CBD. Our journey started in 2015 when it first became legal to grow and possess hemp—yet just because it was legal, didn’t mean there weren’t major complications that we had to overcome (oh, the stories we can tell!). Thankfully, legislation has finally caught up to the many studies supporting CBD’s medical benefits and safety:

      WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD OIL FOR DOGS AND HUMANS?

      CBD products meant for humans and dogs might seem like they’re a world apart, but in reality, they’re similar in many ways. Most CBD products contain comparable sets of active ingredients (i.e. CBD and other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids), so companies often sell identical CBD tinctures for humans and animals, with only minor changes to flavor. This means that most of the time, CBD oil meant for dogs is ok for humans, and vice versa—however, that isn’t always true, so it’s best to use CBD products for their intended species.2-Minute Read
