CBD for Pets
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the predominant molecule that is produced by our plants grown on our farm in Longmont, CO.
As the hemp begins to flower they start to produce what is known as the precursor to CBD, called CBDa (cannabidiolic acid). Through an extraction process called supercritical CO2, we are able to derive a whole plant concentrate of CBDa from hemp and then we convert the CBDa through a process called decarboxylation. This process involves heating the CBDa concentrate at low temperatures to convert to CBD.
CBD is a non-intoxicating, non-addictive antioxidant for the body that both binds and signals to many different receptors and systems (ECS) within the body.
Research on Cannabidiol (CBD) has shown to help with a wide range of health issues for pets and people without causing an intoxicating feeling of being “high”. Health issues that have demonstrated CBD as an adjunct therapy are:
