What Is Full-Spectrum CBD Oil?
CBD is the short abbreviation for Cannabidiol which is one of the 113 active cannabinoids found in the plant cannabis. Sometimes referred to as hemp oil, CBD oil is the extracted oil of the plant that contains concentrated amounts of Cannabidiol.
Cannabidiol (CBD) does not have any psychoactive effects like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) does. This means your dog or cat will not get “high” by consuming CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD oil refers to the pure hemp oil with all the known cannabinoids. While a product with high concentration of CBD is desirable, the presence of other cannabinoids leads to a synergistic effect known as the entourage effect. Having all of the cannabinoids leads to an entourage effect because each component interacts with the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil has more components that make it truly valuable than isolated or synthetic cannabinoids. For example, terpenes that produce distinctive flavors and colors to the final oil. The best CBD Oil also contains proteins, fatty acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and flavonoids.
Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is another highly sought after component in hemp. Discovered back in 1996, it is chemically converted to CBD through decarboxylation, which occurs during the heating of the oil. Researchers are yet to explore the benefits of this precursor of CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD oil further contains vitamins A, B (riboflavin, thiamine, and niacin), C, and E. Hemp plants have vitamins like beta-carotene that are not normally found in the diet. Full-spectrum oil is a source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.
There are 20 amino acids in the full-spectrum oil. They include nine important amino acids that the body cannot produce naturally. While CBD has both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, they occur in the recommended ratio, which is 3:1.
Do Dogs & Cats Have an Endocannabinoid System?
Yes! All mammals including dogs & cats have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS helps to regulate many essential functions of the body and maintain a natural and healthy balance. This natural balance is known as homeostasis.
There is ongoing research about CBD and how it affects the endocannabinoid system.
Is CBD Oil Safe for Both Dogs & Cats?
CBD oil is generally considered to be safe for both dogs & cats. Although the FDA has not given an official ruling on CBD, there is no evidence that CBD is harmful to humans or dogs.
All of our CBD products are lab tested to ensure quality and accuracy in dosing. Because CBD is not psychoactive, it will not make your pet high. There is no known toxic dose of CBD. Furthermore, there have been no reports of any people or animals overdosing on CBD.
As with most natural products, there is a point at which administering additional CBD will have no additional beneficial effect for your pet. It is always advisable, therefore, to give your pet small amounts of the CBD tincture first and then monitor the effects before increasing the dosage.
What Dosage of CBD Oil Should I Buy for My Dog or Cat?
While looking to buy CBD oil products for your dog or cat, you may notice that they come in many varieties and dosages. But, which dosage is optimal for your pet?
To give you a better understanding of how dosage works, you must consider the weight of your pet.
Calculating the Right Dose
For a standard dose, the general rule of thumb is to use 0.25mg of CBD per pound of bodyweight. For example, a dog that weighs 80 pounds may need 20 mg of CBD oil to manage its symptoms. In this case, a 600mg bottle of CBD pet tincture may give you just enough for 30 doses.
On the other hand, a smaller dog weighing 20 pounds may only need 5 mg of CBD oil per dose. In this case, a 150mg bottle of CBD pet tincture will give you just enough for 30 doses.
For a stronger dose, the general rule of thumb is to use 0.5mg of CBD per pound of body weight. For example, let’s say the 80-pound dog normally requires 20mg of CBD oil. For a stronger dose, you may consider using upwards of 40mg, which is half of the body weight.
What to Look for in CBD Oil for Dogs & Cats
Nowadays, there are hundreds, if not thousands of brands selling CBD products for dogs and cats. But how many of these companies should you actually trust? Where you buy the CBD oil for your dog or cat can greatly determine the effectiveness and quality of the product.
The first thing to look out for is the source of the CBD. There are countless numbers of hemp farms in the United States, but not all are grown equally.
In order to cut costs and increase production, many suppliers of CBD grow their hemp farms using artificial fertilizers, pesticides, and chemicals that are very toxic for your pet. Many of these farms may also use genetically modified (GMO) seeds in order to grow pest-resistant hemp crops. These crops are inorganic, and not healthy for the body.
In order to ensure your pet is not consuming any of these toxins, it is important to only purchase 100% organic CBD oil. It is a well-known fact that Colorado is one of the biggest exporters of high-quality organic hemp. Be on the lookout for CBD that is made from USA Colorado-grown hemp.
All HolistaPet CBD oil products for dogs and cats come from all-natural, 100% organic hemp, which is grown in Colorado. We take great pride in using only the highest quality ingredients in our products. This is because we believe your pet should only be enjoying great things, just like you are.
How Is Our CBD Oil Made?
CBD oil is made by separating CBD from the hemp plant and combining it with a carrier oil. Let’s expand on this a bit more.
First, to separate the CBD from the hemp plant, it must go through a process known as extraction. There are several ways you can extract CBD. Each way requires a different kind of solvent to pull the CBD from the plant. Four common examples of solvents are CO2, olive oil, butane, and alcohol.
If this sounds confusing right now, don’t worry. We’ll just get straight to the point. The purest and highest quality CBD oil comes from the CO2 extraction method, which is how we make our CBD oil for dogs & cats. Other solvents such as butane leave behind nasty byproducts that could potentially be dangerous for your pet’s health.
Once we have the CBD extract, we combine it with hemp seed oil. Hempseed oil is an excellent choice for a carrier oil as it is exceptionally rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
