What is this latest treatment called CBD?
Cannabis has always been a key supplement for the animal kingdom, with recorded Chinese widespread use over 4,000 years ago for weaponry, parchment, food, and medicine. Despite being vilified for almost 100 years globally, the new millennium has demonstrated that the natural and healing benefits cannabis as a plant has to offer are astounding.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prominent cannabinoids out of over 100 that are produced only in Cannabis plants and only scientifically identified and isolated from plants grown in the wild back in 1940, with its genetic sibling Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC identified in 1964). Cannabidiol is one of several non-psychotropic chemicals which provide significant health benefits and relief of chronic symptoms to pets as shown below:
Anxiety and stress
Moderate to severe pain
Arthritis & joint pain
Symptoms from cancer
Choosing a CBD Oil
In reality, there are only 3 key components in the constitution of your pet’s CBD Oil:
How was the CBD grown?
- Organically: (ideal method with no chemicals – typically a full spectrum extract)
- Using Pesticides/Insecticides: (risk of toxicity – typically becomes isolate product)
Type of CBD Extraction used?
- Broad spectrum: contains natural compounds in the plant mixed in an oil carrier
- Isolate: only CBD concentrate is chemically extracted and mixed in an oil carrier
Carrier used in manufacture?
- Organic Hempseed Oil: the best option as the extract macerates naturally
- Organic Plant Oils: olive, coconut, among others, however they are less bio-efficient
