Frequently Asked Questions:
A: It helps to reduce stress and anxiety and relieve minor pain in canines.
A: CBD Relief Oil is formulated to provide a healthy, easy-to-digest product that delivers CBD in concert with other cannabinoids, in order to provide an “entourage effect” type therapy to canines. CBD Relief Oil includes just a few ingredients, selected for their ease-of-blending and therapeutic benefits: Fish Oil is one of the best supplements to add to your dog’s diet. Fish Oil may help support your canine companion’s heart health, may help promote a silky coat, reduces itchy and flaky skin, and can help relieve allergies and joint pain. Fish Oils may even help strengthen the canine immune system and could help fight cancer. That’s because Fish Oil contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids, an essential “good” type of fat that helps your dog’s body and brain. Like humans, dogs can’t produce Omega-3 Fatty Acids on their own and must get them from their diet. (AKC.org) Hemp Seed Oil The many health benefits of hemp seed oil come from its high content of three polyunsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid. Additionally, its ratio of Omega-6 (linoleic acid) to Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) Fatty Acids is 3:1. Experts agree that this 3:1 Fatty Acid ratio is ideal for health benefits in humans. The same is likely true of canines. Hemp Seed Oil provides the following health benefits, including improving skin, lowering blood pressure, promoting heart health, helping reduce pain and inflammation, and lowering blood pressure. Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil contains hundreds of compounds mostly or completely absent from Distillate CBD Oil or Isolate CBD used by other products. Our Hemp CBD Oil is minimally processed and includes fats and lipids, flavonoids, terpenes, and cannabinoids other than CBD. The resulting synergy of these cannabinoids and terpenes provides a more effective therapy than CBD alone.

A: CBD, or cannabidiol, is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of marijuana, or manufactured in a laboratory. One of hundreds of components in marijuana, CBD does not cause a “high” by itself.” health.harvard.edu
A: CBD and THC are isomers – they have the same chemical formula C21H30O2 but different structures and chemical and pharmacological properties. CBD, THC, and over 100 other cannabinoids sharing similar chemical structures.
A: Full Spectrum describes the presence of the full complement of cannabinoids and terpenes present in the original Hemp or Cannabis plant. While many products claim Full Spectrum, they are not. If they contain three cannabinoids or less, they are either extensively processed or created using CBD Isolate. Full Spectrum Hemp Oil contains hundreds of compounds mostly or completely absent from Distillate CBD Oil or Isolate CBD. This includes fats and lipids, flavonoids, terpenes, and cannabinoids other than CBD
A: The term “entourage effect” was coined by Mechoulam and Shimon Ben-Shabat in a cannabinoid study in 1999. In the study, they suggested that this phenomenon explains why botanical drugs (containing the entire spectrum of compounds within a plant) can sometimes be more effective than the plant’s isolated components. This is a consequence of the synergistic interaction between multiple cannabinoids and terpenes and the body’s endocannabinoid system.
A: No. CBD is generally considered safe and well-tolerated by animals and humans. A dog can’t lethally overdose on it. However, CBD can be overdosed and cause a few mild side effects, such as dry mouth, lethargy, appetite fluctuation, and diarrhea.
A: Yes, but at <0.1% the amount is well below the Federal limit (0.3%). THC’s minimal presence is still critical to promoting cannabinoid synergy and the resulting entourage effect.
A: No. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring, non-psychotropic cannabinoid of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa L. and has been known to induce several physiological and pharmacological effects.
A: No. Feline metabolism is somewhat different from canines. Studies are thus far insufficient to determine their full impact.
A: Yes, but adjust the dose accordingly.
A: If your pet is using prescription medications for anxiety, we strongly recommend that you first confer with your veterinarian. CBD shares the same P450 metabolic pathway as some prescription medications.

A: The half-life (time from ingestion until ½ of the ingredient is still present) for CBD in canines is approximately 1 to 4 hours. CBD will be largely absent within 3-4 hours.
