The use of hemp in pet healthcare is relatively new. Therefore, parents are naturally a little skeptical. One of the biggest fears that pet parents have is accidentally getting their pets high and causing more anxiety. Our full spectrum hemp supplements are organic and contain zero THC, so they just receive the calming effects and health benefits of hemp. Here’s our guide for skeptical parents when shopping for full spectrum and CBD products for their pets.
Understanding the Terminology
Many terminologies are being thrown around in the hemp supplement industry: CBD, PCR, full spectrum, THC, and more. CBD is what most people are familiar with, but our full spectrum hemp supplements take the benefits of CBD one step further. There are hundreds of beneficial constituents in the hemp plant that work synergistically, known as the “Entourage Effect,” and “full spectrum” is a term we use that more accurately describes the hemp we use in our supplements. Benefits of full spectrum hemp include reducing anxiety, pain, boosting the immune system, and much more.
Third Party Testing
Pets can get all the benefits of the hemp plant without being afraid of psychoactive ingredients. To ensure this, one should always check the product for trace amounts of THC and other potential contaminants, since full spectrum hemp supplements are relatively new on the market and can be fairly unregulated. That means that you need to trust the company you buy from to do their own third-party testing so that you can trust the ingredients. Before purchasing a full spectrum hemp product for your pet, ask the seller for a 3rd party Certificate of Analysis (COA) so that you can verify that the product does not include THC, and matches the product description.
Certificate of Analysis
Our 3rd party Certificate of Analysis is available on our website, and is also available at our shop in Berkeley. All of our products come with a COA, so customers can see that our products match their descriptions, the dosages are accurate, and they do not contain any contaminants.
Does the Seller Use the Product?
Another great question to ask any seller of hemp supplements is whether they use the products on their own pets. One of the main reasons we got into the hemp supplement industry is because we saw the incredible health benefits of full spectrum hemp and CBD first hand, thus inspiring us to create our own line of full spectrum hemp supplements. This is personal to us. We would not sell you something that we wouldn’t use on our own pets!
