1. GOOD LAB WORK W/ ZERO CONTAMINANTS
A company’s lab work (also known as a Certificate of Analysis/ COA) should verify the absence of contaminants, solvents, pesticides, and other toxic compounds; lab work can also tell you what cannabinoids and terpenes the product contains, if any. You can learn how to interpret lab work here.
2. A FULL SPECTRUM OF CANNABINOIDS
“Full-spectrum” CBD refers to CBD products that contain a small amount of THC (which should be less than 0.3%). Full-spectrum CBD is the most effective type of CBD product, as studies show that CBD works best when used alongside other supporting cannabinoids (such as CBC, CBG, and CBDV).
3. A ROBUST TERPENE PROFILE
Terpenes in your CBD product are a sign of superior extraction and effectiveness. The naturally occurring terpenes that are shown in our lab work not only have a wonderful flavor and smell, but many have also been widely shown to be of significant interest for many common situations that dogs may face by numerous studies. Additionally, certain terpenes in our tinctures are known to promote possible calming properties of our product for those who need it.
4. PLANTS THAT ARE ORGANICALLY GROWN AND NON-GMO
Organic, non-GMO growing practices minimize exposure to toxic compounds and create plants which are richer in nutrients. Furthermore, these growing practices are more sustainable and environmentally conscious than industrial farming.
Yes! As per the 2018 Farm Bill, all hemp products (defined as those with less than 0.3%) THC are legal to sell, buy, and possess in all fifty states.
If you’re asking this as a veterinary professional, things are slightly more complex; laws govern the use of CBD in veterinary contexts, you may have to contend with guidelines from veterinary boards. Please contact us for more information if you’re interested in using CBD in your practice.
Dosing is done by weight. We recommend 1 to 2 mg of CBD for every ten pounds that they weigh, once or twice a day depending on the severity of their condition. For example, a 70-pound dog with mild mobility issues might take 7 mg of CBD, once a day in the morning; once ingested, CBD tends to last in canine bodies for 6 to 9 hours. For more information, consult our our dosing guide.
In special cases, such as with end-of-life and other severe situations, dosing may vary. If you feel your dog may fall into this category, please reach out to our customer support team to receive more specialized dosing information.
