How does hemp work in pets?
It works the same way it works in people, by stimulating the endocannabinoid system to create balance in the body.
Is THC necessary for Hemp Extract to work?
No it is not. This was a common belief before more research was done regarding hemp’s other cannabinoids. New information has shown that THC and phytocannabinoids can sufficiently function without the other. Broad spectrum products that are THC-free but still have several other cannabinoids present are the most beneficial as the cannabinoids are able to complement each other’s individual effects.
Is THC safe to use in pets?
We do NOT recommend giving THC to animals. Dogs have been found to be highly sensitive and potentially toxic to its psychoactive properties. Cats have been shown to be less susceptible to effects of THC however it is best to avoid the psychotropic compound all together.
How much do I give my pet?
Choosing the correct hemp extract dose for your dog can be pretty confusing. The dosage can also differ depending on the condition you’re trying to treat. And of course, you have your dog’s weight and underlying health issues to take into consideration.
Here is a basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1-5 mg of Cannabidiol www.health.harvard.edu for every 10 pounds of body weight. It is best to go slow and monitor results. Take a journal and observe your pet’s responses and adjust accordingly.
