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.
Doubts that linger around cannabidiol in dogs involve the continuing confusion and conflation of CBD with THC, as well as the cannabis plant’s legal status. To reiterate, CBD does not get anyone high, neither human nor dog, since the chemical is non-toxic and non-psychoactive. You may be aware that, in 2015, there was some controversy, as the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to CBD dog treat manufacturer Canna-Pet. The substance of this warning was that Canna-Pet’s site announced claims on their website, touting the medical benefits and medicinal uses of their dog treats.
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).
Before you decide to slip your pup a sample—or even one of your edibles (hint: they can’t eat chocolate)—be warned that animals are incredibly sensitive to THC. This is due to abundant receptors in their brains, their heightened sensitivity, and their propensity for experiencing static ataxia. Like humans, dogs suffer from a variety of ailments, such as aching joints and anxiety, that could possibly benefit from treatment with cannabinoids. But because we know even less about the effects of cannabis on dogs than we do of its effects on humans, you should consult your veterinarian before proceeding further. Cannabis has the potential to cause numerous negative health effects in pets, and unlike in humans, it can even be lethal for your animal.
