Where does CBD come from?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a phytochemical (plant compound) found in several plants, including industrial hemp.
Starting Material Matters – real industrial hemp is not the same thing as “Charlotte’s web,” “companion cannabis,” or “Pot for pets.” Cannabis that was formerly known as “medical marijuana,” but which has had it’s THC bred or diluted down to 0.30% may be called “hemp” in some states, or by some companies, but it is still not ideal for pets. Like Rick Simpson Oil, these products contain MUCH more THC than is advisable to administer to a dog, and are not truly legal to use in products.
Some of these “hemp” products may even appear to work well in the first week – but a month later after constant administration pets can have toxic reactions.
Many companies are entering the “hemp CBD” industry from the medical marijuana or dispensary businesses (or the holistic or naturopathic industries) do not understand the THC toxicity potential for dogs – which is distinctly different from humans (even if they may give lip service to this fact).
Just because a product has “less than 0.30% THC” does not make that product actually hemp, or safe for your pet to consume regularly. Making CBD biscuits for dogs is not the same thing as making “edibles” like cookies, or any other dispensary product for people from marijuana.
Currently, marijuana and it’s derivatives are much cheaper and readily available sources of CBD than properly refined industrial hemp. Cannabis (the marijuana form, be it “high-CBD” or not) is cheaper to buy, grow, and turn into products in small scale – and is completely unregulated – while proper hemp-based nutritional products like Canna-Pet® require millions of dollars in laboratory equipment and infrastructure to produce in proper cGMP facilities – and are produced on a commercial scale.
The Canna-Pet® Entourage Effect
Beyond toxicity and legality, there are other reasons that Canna-Pet® hemp is vastly superior to medical cannabis or derivatives, and that is the diversity and abundance of cannabinoids and terpenes (beyond simply CBD) offered by the different hemp plants and crops used in our formulations is well beyond what is found in marijuana.
Canna-Pet® is unique in that our hemp extracts are not only made from actual industrial hemp, but also contain eight additional cannabinoids and over twenty terpenes beyond “just CBD.” For example ß-Caryophyllene (BCP) is a dietary cannabinoid included in our products, Not only does this deliver an entirely new potential cannabinoid benefits to the endocannabinoid system (ECS), but it also increases the uptake of CBD by the system. The same could potentially be said for each of the dozens of additional cannabinoids and terpenes which Canna-Pet® alone provides.
Canna-Pet® pioneered the field of cannabinoid nutrition adapted for pets in 2013.
Our products (millions of capsules and biscuits sold worldwide) have demonstrated that CBD and other cannabinoids aren’t just obtained from “marijuana” but could also be refined from other plant sources, like industrial hemp.
Our products are veterinarian recommended, legal everywhere, covered by major pet insurers, and 100% safe for pets to consume.
