What is Hemp Extract?
Organic Hemp Extract is produced from industrial hemp that contains less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. At Earth Buddy we like to call it “Colorado Style” hemp that is “non-intoxicating”. The Organic Hemp Extract we use contains a wide array of naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes that promote an entourage that engages the Endogenous Cannabinoid System.
What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol is a prominent naturally occurring plant-based cannabinoid that is the most abundant molecule from the organic hemp we use in all of our products. Along with naturally occurring terpenes and other cannabinoids these plant compounds are showing great promise for daily supplementary use.
Will Hemp Extract get my pet “high”?
Colorado has one of the most well regulated Industrial Hemp programs in the world, in that they do not allow the levels of THC to exceed .3% at any step of the process. This means that all of our products will never have a level of THC over .3%, which will not get your pet “high”. Pets cannot tell us how they feel when under the influence of THC, so as a company we decided to always use hemp grown under the guidelines of Colorado Industrial Hemp program.
How long before I see any effects from using Hemp Extracts?
We feel that Hemp Extracts are an individualized supplement and pet parents should always monitor the demeanor, digestion, and behavior of their pet. Every pet is different based on size, age, and predisposition so START SMALL! We recommend that you supplement all of our products for at least 7-10 days with our suggested dosages on our labels and adjust accordingly for best results. Keep plenty of water available and try to supplement daily for optimal results.
What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that helps the body maintain a healthy biological balance. This means our bodies, as well as our pets, are producing cannabinoids on its own. Mother Nature in her infinite wisdom created a plant with an abundance of these same compounds that we can extract from our Organic Hemp and supplement. This system acts on many peripheral systems within the body that regulates mood, appetite, pain management, digestion, and much more in the area of research is on the horizon for it’s chemical function in the body.
Why is there Black Pepper in the hemp hearts?
All of our Hemp Hearts contain Turmeric and will also have a small amount of Black Pepper for the sole purpose of increasing bioavailability. Studies have shown that when Turmeric is supplemented with black pepper it becomes 2000% more absorbable.

Every dog is a little different, so results may vary with age, breed, size, and predisposition.
