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.
First, we need to outline the distinction between CBD and THC. Cannabidiol is not the same thing as tetrahydrocannabinol. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the major reason why words like “cannabis,” “marijuana,” “pot,” and “weed” provoke immediate and negative reactions among the general populace. Like CBD, THC is a cannabinoid. THC is a psychoactive compound that produces the sensations of being “stoned.”
It’s a proven fact that all mammals, people and pet’s alike, have an Endocannabinoid System. That means that your pet can enjoy the same amazing healing properties of CBD just as people do. The Endocannabinoid System is a huge network comprised of many cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body. This crucial system is used by the body to help maintain homeostasis.
Yes! I’ve seen SO much about CBD oil recently, but I’m hesitant to try it since it seems like a fad. I also feel like some are definitely better quality than others. The ones I’ve seen haven’t been as expensive, but I never really thought about dosage etc. Thanks for your review, Kermit has a vet appointment coming up for his yearly check up, I’ll ask about CBD oil. He’s pretty good in general but sometimes gets too hype over certain things (though we’re working with a trainer too).
This is why Hemp Genix was created: to provide to you the best opportunity to improve your health with all natural, non-GMO, and pesticide-free, PETA Registered, FDA Registered, FDA Approves Sunblocks, and CGMP Certified Facility to manufacturer hemp based CBD Oil products. Harsh chemicals or solvents ARE NOT USED when obtaining the high CBD hemp oil found in the products we sell on this site. Supercritical Fluid Extraction is the method of choice, which utilizes highly pressurized CO2 within a closed system under cold temperatures to preserve the nutritional profile of the hemp plant, passing all of that nutrition on to you.
Veterinarians’ views on pets being treated with CBD vary widely, with some citing the lack of scholarly literature on it specifically in relation to pets. Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates pet food in the US, decidedly does not approve of CBD. “With regard to its use in food, FDA's position is that CBD … is an unapproved drug, hence any food (including animal feed or pet food) containing it would be actionable as an adulterated product,” wrote David A. Dzanis, DVM, PhD, DACVN, in a recent Petfood Insights column.
Each of these no-nonsense biscuits contains 4mg of CBD. There are only five ingredients involved in their making, which is so straightforward and simple that you probably could make them on your own for much cheaper. But you probably won’t (I’m a devoted dog mom too, but I don’t have time to DIY everything), and if you’re looking for nothing but CBD with an appetizing bacon flavor to please your pupper, here you go.
