WHAT CAN CBD CHEWS DO FOR YOUR DOG?
It’s no secret that people have been using CBD, this is because the endocannabinoid system is closely tied to many bodily functions. The good news is that CBD works the same way for dogs as it does for humans.
There is not enough evidence to fully understand if, or how, CBD could influence a dogs system, and you should always consult your vet for diagnosis and treatment of any issue, but the relationship between the ECS and the following is currently being explored:
- Skin and Nerve Function
- Liver function
- Muscle growth
- Cardiovascular health
- Reproduction and fertility
- Bone growth
- Motor skills
- Chronic pain
- Digestion and appetite
- Sleep function
- Metabolic function
ARE THEY SAFE FOR DOGS?
Our mission is to make products that you can trust for your four-legged family, and we apply this same philosophy to our chews.
Let’s talk about THC; it’s the ingredient in marijuana that gets people high. Marijuana is widely accepted to be relatively safe for people, but unfortunately, that is not the case with dogs. If they ingest it in large quantities, it can cause serious health problems and even death, usually from concentrated marijuana-derived edibles and flowers with 20%+ THC.
It is very unlikely your dog is going to get sick from ingesting hemp-derived CBD products as, by law, they should only contain a maximum of 0.3% THC. However, the long term effects of even small amounts of THC on dogs are not known.
In our quest to make safe chews for dogs, we chose to make our products out of a completely THC free broad-spectrum hemp extract, which is rich in naturally retained (not added in) whole-plant terpenes and flavonoids.
We have found that CBD can be very effective without THC, as long as the final product retains much of the other compounds present in hemp.
