What is Hemp/CBD and How It Works
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, stimulates a person’s EndoCannabinoid System, causing relief from numerous symptoms and conditions like: Anxiety, Inflammation, Arthritis, Joints, Allergies, Skin Conditions, Digestive Issues, Cancer, Nausea and more.
Are Cannabinoids Good for My Health
CBD products are absolutely safe for you as they are non-toxic and offer relaxing stimulant and pain-relief effects. Cannabinoids come from the hemp oil (or hemp seed oil) and leave out most if not all of the THC making it a safe supplement for your health.
Hemp Oil vs. Marijuana: Why You Need to Know the Difference
When thinking about CBD for your use, you should first understand the difference between marijuana and hemp. First, they both come from the same cannabis sativa plant, however, have different properties and results.
Marijuana – is the buds, leaves, and resin of the cannabis plant and are a high source of a substance called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is what results in a psychoactive effect in humans, or in other terms, getting ‘high.’
Hemp – is the rest of the plant. This part of the plant contains less than 3% of tetrahydrocannabinol but does contain a substance called cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabidiol activated receptor sites in the body’s endocannabinoid system..
CBD hemp oil is not associated with the “high” of marijuana, otherwise known as the THC.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM AND HOW IT WORKS
Named after the plant that led to its discovery, the endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors located throughout the body. Short-lived natural endocannabinoid substances are synthesized on demand by the body to maintain homeostasis, a stable internal environment. When these internal mechanisms lag behind the body’s needs, supplementing with extra CBD can help. Research also suggests that supplementing can coax the body to build more receptors so natural cannabinoids will work more effectively.
Two types of receptors have been identified: CB1 receptors, predominantly in the brain, nervous system, glands and organs; and CB2 receptors, found mainly in the regulatory cells of the immune system. Many tissues contain both receptors, each linked to a different action. A key role of the endocannabinoid system is controlling inflammation by up-regulating or down-regulating the immune response. An overactive response can lead to allergies and auto-immune problems; an underactive one can leave the body susceptible to infections and the unchecked proliferation of cancer cells.
Products containing Hemp/CBD products are NOT pharmaceuticals. They are organic, plant-based, non-GMO nutritional products that you can feed to your pet with total confidence and ease. All products provide nutritional cannabinoids.
Safe & Natural
Cannabidoids (like CBD) are naturally occurring compounds present in plants, cultivated for thousands of years because they interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Our pet products are infused with CBD isolate to deliver safe effective treatment.
All of our products are formulated and manufactured in our USA-based GMP certified laboratories. All formulations are organic, non-GMO and vegan, free of animal products, preservatives, SLS, gelatin, wheat, gluten, sugar, and dairy and using CBD from the whole Hemp plant- NOT the marijuana plant.
Will CBD Give Me a ‘Buzz?’
No! CBD products are not a psychoactive agent, meaning that they do not contain the substance THC that causes this reaction. Marijuana comes from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa with the active ingredient THC, but CBD is a relaxant and pain-relief agent and non-psychotropic.
