CBG for Dogs & Cats
CBG is often considered the “mother of all cannabinoids” due to it’s acidic pre-cursor CBGa. As the Hemp plants mature CBGa is converted to other predominant cannabinoids, more widely known, like CBD and THC. In our case at Earth Buddy, we grow strains that naturally produce Hemp strains that will contain small amounts of CBG that is found in our Hemp Extracts for dogs and cats. We also grow a different Hemp plant that produces high amounts of CBG extracts on our farm, which is what we use to formulate products like our Maxx Life and Cellular Support. CBG for dogs and cats has shown to provide similar benefits that CBD can produce, but without the heavy sedative effect pet owners may not desire. For that reason, we often recommend products with a higher amount of CBG for dogs and cats that are in their senior life stage. As with all of our products, we believe in using a full-spectrum hemp extract for pets in order to produce an entourage effect and maintaining as much of the bioactive compounds the plant naturally produced.
Can CBG be used as a preventive supplement for overall pet wellness?
Cannabinoids like CBG for dogs and cats should be used for their antioxidative benefits. CBG benefits also have been shown to help with bowel irritability, which is common in cats and dogs as they age. For more research on the benefits of CBG for dogs and cats, check out our CBG for Pets page.
What are the benefits of choosing organic CBG over non-organic CBG?
The organic certification of plant extracts like CBG is a long and arduous process that we feel is necessary in ensuring our customers are buying the highest quality pet supplements. Due to the many additional hurdles the hemp companies in America already go through, Earth Buddy feels that sourcing and growing organic hemp is always a safer and better choice. Most of the hemp grown in the USA is organically cultivated but there is too much room for error with the other processes of extraction and formulation, so it is why Earth Buddy chooses to use only organic hemp extracts.
Are there any specific storage or handling instructions for CBG products?
All of our CBG products can be stored in a dry, cool area with a shelf life of up to 2 years. Some pet owners prefer to keep it in the refrigerator but always suggest shaking it well before using and the different fat molecules of CBG, CBD, and organic MCT oil can separate after sitting over time. For more dosage information, check out Dosage Page.
How long does it typically take for CBG to start showing noticeable results in pets?
It depends on what the purpose of using CBG for pets is, but typically we suggest using CBG for supporting older dogs and cats suffering from a compromised immune system or digestive issues. With any natural pet supplement, it is optimal to use daily for the above issues for a period of around 2-3 weeks for best results.
Is CBG recommended for senior pet wellness?
Earth Buddy recommends CBG for dogs and cats over the age of 7, as one of the best ways to keep your senior pet healthy and happy. In addition to the specific CBG benefits we promote for pets, we look at these plant extracts and the MCT oil we use in our products as healthy fats that keep the brain healthy and support skin & coat.
