      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.

      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.

      WHAT ARE TERPENES AND FLAVONOIDS AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT FOR CBD PRODUCTS?

      You may have heard of terpenes and flavonoids before, but do you know what they actually are? These plant compounds are found throughout nature, yet the terpenes and flavonoids that occur in the hemp plant can be extraordinarily effective at reducing inflammation and pain.

      WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT USING TOPICAL CBD FOR INFLAMMATION AND PAIN IN ANIMALS

      Did you know that you don’t actually have to ingest CBD to benefit from it? As CBD products become more and more popular, you’ll see them in many varieties, such as tinctures, treats, and topicals. Topical CBD products are different from any other type of CBD product because they interact with your endocannabinoid system in a unique way, and current findings show that they could be incredibly helpful for animals suffering from certain localized skin ailments and surface inflammation.
