Hemp is an herb that has been grown commercially for many years. It is used for food (have you seen Hemp Hearts in the store?), fiber (the HUGE ropes that hold the big ships in harbor) clothing, pulp for paper, bedding, kitty litter, and the list goes on. Every part of the plant can be used. It is not marijuana, although it is a relative so the two plants look similar. Industrial Hemp by definition has less than .3% THC and has no psychotic effects.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 113 cannabinoids that can be extracted from hemp. CBD has no psychoactive effects.
DON'T GET FOOLED. There are many companies that are selling "Hemp Oil". Hemp oil is pressed from the seeds of the plant and has no CBD content. It is still a very good oil for other uses, but should be priced more like an excellent cooking oil. All our products are third party tested and are guaranteed to have the CBD content advertised. On our Oil Products, the CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes are extracted using the CO2 method for the highest quality products. Most of our products for horses and dogs are made with whole plant hemp, and never extracted at all.
A CBD isolate contains only CBD. A full spectrum will contain additional terpenes and cannabinoids, such as CBG and CBN. We sell both full spectrum and isolate CBD products. THC levels are below 0.3%. Both full spectrum hemp extract with CBD and CBD isolate has it's own benefits, however there is much to be said about the Entourage Effect, which builds greater benefits when a full spectrum is used.
The answer to this question largely varies from horse to horse. We recommend starting with a low milligram amount and increasing if needed.
CBD products are believed to be safe for animals. Pets are able to process cannabidiol in much the same way that humans are. Isolates contain 0% THC. Small amounts are present in all of our whole plant hemp products.
CBD, or cannabidiol, and hemp oil are non-psychoactive and will not induce intoxication. The stigma surrounding CBD and hemp oil is diminishing, but this is still a common misunderstanding. As long as CBD is derived from hemp and under 0.3% THC, it is legal to sell, purchase, and possess in all 50 states.
CBD Isolate does not contain any THC because it has been isolated through the distillation process. Full spectrum CBD oil contains less than .3%, and there will not be any psychoactive effects.
