A newer pet food product category getting a lot of buzz at US pet trade shows the past two years has been pet treats and supplements featuring cannabidiol (CBD). Sorry for the bad pun; this oil derives from the hemp plant, though a different species than ones containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana responsible for the psychoactive reaction, or high (buzz), in people or animals who imbibe it. CBD does not cause the same reaction, say its proponents in the pet industry.
Our Edibites are infused with our full spectrum certified USDA organic CBD hemp oil which is extracted from our proprietary strain of hemp, PR-33. PR-33 is grown at our joint-venture certified USDA organic hemp farm in eastern Colorado and was selected because it’s cannabinoid profile was the most optimal for pets. In order for CBD products to be as beneficial as possible, every cannabinoid naturally found in the hemp plant must be present, THC included. This is because all of the cannabinoids in the hemp plant work together in what is called the “entourage effect,” this is why Pet Releaf never uses CBD isolate, CBD alone loses the majority if it’s medicinal benefits. The PR-33 strain is extremely high in the beneficial cannabinoid CBD and extremely low in THC at an almost undetectable level of 0.1%. PR-33 is a proprietary strain and will only ever be found in Pet Releaf products. We extract our CBD hemp oil using a super critical CO2 method, meaning we only use pressurized air to remove the CBD from the plant and never any toxic solvents or chemicals. Our CBD hemp oil uses the flowers, leaves, and some seeds so that our products contain the full spectrum CBD that is extracted from the plant as well as the protein benefits of the seeds.
If you want to make sure it is safe for your dog to take 100% pure cbd for dog products, you should ask your product. Moreover, you should also follow the instructions on the label to make sure that your dog can take the right amount of dosage everyday. Even if you feel like your dog will need more dosage, you must not attempt to let them to take more. In case your dog is taking other supplements, try to consult it to your vet because it might affect their attitude and also their appetite.
All available evidence indicates that long-term use of Hemp Treats causes no long-term side effects. However, Hemp CBD has only truly been available for pets for the last few years, so there is of course still time to find an issue. However, phytocannabinoids work naturally in the body because they act like self-created cannabinoids — they can increase their concentrations, as well as attach to the same receptors.
Hemp isn’t the only beneficial ingredient in them, though. There’s coconut and turmeric, both of which have tried-and-tested anti-inflammatory properties. The formulation is also gluten-free, for those who care about that sort of thing. Furthermore, the Treatibles team tells Leafly that that the hemp is medicinal grade, specifically grown for MMJ purposes.
