Best CBD for Pets
At Earthy Buddy, our main objective is to create safe CBD pet products! From meticulously sourcing our ingredients to testing our finished products using third-party labs, we use extra precaution and care every step of the way. Your pet is family to you, and family deserves the best!
Hemp is Non-Intoxicating
When considering hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products, one of the major concerns for pet parents is if it will get your pet “high.” In truth, CBD is a non-intoxicating, non-habit forming antioxidant for the body. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the active compound found in marijuana), CBD from Hemp is not intoxicating. Your dog or cat will get relaxation without intoxication. It’s a promising treatment for a number of medical conditions and has been deemed safe by the WHO and other health organizations.
Plant Quality Matters
When choosing a CBD pet product, pet parents should know where a product’s cannabis plant originates from.
At Earth Buddy, all of the hemp used in our products is grown outdoors in Longmont, CO, under the guidelines of the Department of Agriculture and complies with the 0.3% or less THC limit.
- We use rigorous, organic standards, never spraying our plants with pesticides.
- We test our crop regularly for purity and potency.
- Our water is sourced from glacial melt from the Rocky Mountains that flows into an aquaponic system that contains fish, frogs, and turtles.
To ensure we produce a potent and healthy hemp plant, we only grow to scale on four acres of land. Because of this, our crop does not require harsh interventions typically used by larger farm operations, including pesticides, insecticides, fungicides, and other chemical applications.. We hand harvest and hang-dry our plants in a temperature-controlled facility to ensure that the quality and purity of our hemp is preserved.
We extract CBD from hemp to create a concentrated form consumable for humans (and cbd for pets!). We also test our raw botanical extracts for the following:
- Potency (Cannabinoids, Terpenes)
- Heavy Metals
- Mold, Mildew, and Mycotoxins
- Residual Chemical Solvents
Our farm also doubles as a Hemp Research & Development site, run by professionals with PhDs in Evolutionary Biology and Biochemistry.
Endocannabinoid System 101
The Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS) is an ancient mammalian system that acts on many peripheral systems within the body.
Example: Central Nervous System (CNS)
The ECS’s primary goal is to promote homeostasis or balance. This system produces the same compounds that are found in the Organic Hemp Extract used in Earth Buddy. By introducing phytocannabinoids or plant-based cannabinoids from Organic Hemp we can engage the Endocannabinoid System and promote calming, brain health, joint health, immune support and many other benefits the body requires for homeostasis.
At Earth Buddy our goal is to provide locally sourced, minimally processed natural pet supplements that will allow your pet to thrive. In a world where most CBD pet products are highly processed our focus is the opposite by allowing Mother Nature to provide the benefits to your furry friends.
Healthy Plants make the difference!
Earth Buddy Believes in taking a true small-batch approach by using strict organic cultivation practices driven by science and innovation. We grow single origin hemp, which allows us to NEVER sacrifice quality. Opposite of commodity based CBD pet products, which primary focus is lowering cost we use quality of the plants as the driving factor in our sourcing. The organic hemp used in Earth Buddy products is grown outdoors in the Colorado sun at an elevation of 5,000 feet above sea level. By using a process called supercritical CO2 or mechanically separating bioactive compounds we are able to extract a wide and varying spectrum of cannabinoids, fats, lipids and terpenes.
Earth Buddy believes in the “Entourage Effect” theorizing that a mix of cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes contribute to an overall superior therapeutic effect compared to single-molecule cannabinoid therapies. Recent research has been conducted to support this hypothesis showing that a wide-spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes outperform the isolated single-molecule. This speaks to our natural pet supplements while ensuring our customers that we are not using chemical solvents and frequently testing with independent labs for purity and potency.
All of the Organic Hemp Extract used in Earthy Buddy supplements is grown under the guidelines of the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s Industrial Hemp Program. This means that all of our products have less than .3% THC and are non-intoxicating.
