Q: Will my dog get drunk? A: NO, we get the grains prior to fermentation so no alcohol was ever in contact. If you would like, soak the treats in a little alcohol but we don't want to know about it.
What is Cannabidiol Oil / CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol Oil / CBD Oil is derived from the cannabis plant and is produced from the resins extracted from the flowers, leaves and stalk of the plant that contain cannabinoids – more specifically, Cannabidiol. CBD Oil cannot be produced, processed or pressed from seeds. CBD Oil originating from industrial hemp (stalks) does not contain the same elevated levels of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) found in the flowers of the plant. Hemp and hemp derived products are naturally rich in CBD (Cannabidiol
What Are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a class of diverse chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors found in the human body that repress the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant. The cannabinoids most abundant are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabinoids interact with specific receptors (CB1 and CB2) located within various parts of the central nervous system. The following are cannabinoids that have been researched the most: CBC (Cannabicromen): CBC is know to relieve pain (analgesic), as well as reduce inflammation. It has also been documented that it inhibits cell growth in tumors and cancer cells and promotes bone growth. CBD (Cannabidiol): CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid formed from CBG. Studies have shown that it has anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and anti-nausea effects. It can also lower high blood pressure, has pain killing properties, reduces muscle spasms and is a neuroprotective antioxidant. CBD is a THC antagonist, meaning it counteracts (reduces) the psychoactive effects of THC. CBG (Cannabigerol): CBG is the first cannabinoid produced in the cannabis plant, and is the biogenetic precursor to all other cannabinoids. It has shown a significant ability to counteract and prevent the formation of tumors. CBD (Cannabinol): CBD has approximately 10% of the psycho-activity of THC. It occurs when THC is exposed to heat or light, and is known to reduce spasms. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol): THC is the most well known cannabinoid and the most psychoactive. It has the ability to alter behavior, mood perception, and consciousness. It is what makes people feel “high.” THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin): THCV is another psychoactive cannabinoid. It may help with the treatment of diabetes and is being studied as an anti-obesity drug.
What Are Endocannabinoids?
Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical produced within the body that have similar effects on the body than those of plant cannabinoids.
What Is The Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (endogenous cannabinoid system or ECS) is an intercellular messaging system that consists of a network of special receptors in all human cells that interact with cannabinoids produced naturally in the body (endocannabinoids), as well as cannabinoids from outside the body including plant-grown (phytocannabinoids) and synthetic. It has been identified as potentially the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissue, glands, and immune cells, and are involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. In each tissue they are found, the endocannabinoids and their receptors perform differently, but share a common objective – to promote a state of homeostasis or internal stability and maintain a stable environment despite a changing external environment.
What's The Difference Between Industrial Hemp And What Is Commonly Referred To As Cannabis (Or Marijuana)?
The difference is in how the plants are used and the amount of certain cannabinoids present in each. Both industrial hemp and cannabis come from the same plant. The term “Hemp” commonly refers to the industrial and commercial use of the cannabis stalk and seeds, while the term cannabis or “marijuana” refers to the recreational or spiritual use of the plant’s flowers. Hemp (by definition/law) contains less than 0.3% THC. It is legal to import and sell hemp and hemp derived products in the United States. “Marijuana” contains >0.3% THC. “Marijuana” is regulated by the DEA as a Schedule I drug and is illegal in all 50 states under Federal Regulations.
Why are Hemp Derived Products So Expensive?
Since it is not legal to grow in the United States under Federal Law, in order for us to legally acquire and sell hemp related oils and products, we must import from outside of the country. The importation cost if very expensive. Additionally, the extraction process is very time consuming and expensive to perform. Also, we analyze all raw materials and finished products to ensure quality and purity. This process takes a significant amount of time and there is substantial costs involved in each step. One laboratory analysis alone can cost several thousand dollars. Therefore, Hemp, Hemp Extracts, and Hemp derived products are very expensive to produce and manufacture.
Why Don't You Source Your Hemp From A State In The U.S. Where It's Legal To Grow?
We sell our products nationally and internationally. In order to comply with conflicting federal and state laws regarding the growth and cultivation of cannabis, we only source from countries where we know it is legal to do so. By doing so, we are able to comply with both federal and state laws while offering the highest quality, purest, most potent hemp extract and related products and making them available internationally.
How Should I Use Hemp Extract Products?
Use all products in accordance with the recommended use on the product packaging and information. You should always consult your physician when beginning a new diet, exercise or supplementation program.
What Is The Recommended Serving Size and How Often Should I Take It?
Use all products in accordance with the recommendations provided with the product. The serving size is going to vary depending on the individual and circumstances. A child weighing 45 lbs will have different needs than an adult male weighing 235 lbs. In one study we reviewed, 2mg of cannabidiol (CBD) had similar effects as 200mg of cannabidiol (CBD). Something else to consider is most studies and research being performed on CBD rich hemp extract is using an isolated form of synthetic cannabidiol. Our CBD rich hemp extract is plant based, and includes trace amounts of other cannabidoids. Studies have shown that CBD is more effective when used in conjunction with the other cannabinoids found naturally in hemp. Because research is still in its infancy, and serving sizes have not been identified, we recommend that you experiment. Hemp products are considered safe, so doing your own research and experimentation in order to determine what works best for you is ideal. It should be noted however that unlike most chemicals, your body will store cannabidiol over time. As such, after a few weeks of using CBD rich hemp extract oil, you may be able to reduce your serving amount and/or frequency and gain similar effects. So, for the first few days have a low serving to allow the body to acclimate, then for the next few weeks have a high serving size more frequently to “dose” the body and build up a store, then finally once your body has built up a store, you can incrementally reduce the serving size and frequency while still achieving the same results.
Are Hemp Extract Products Safe? Are There Any Negative Side Effects?
Hemp extract and the constituents of hemp derived products are considered to be generally safe. We have not had any complaints from any of our customers concerning their use of our products. We have however heard of some people using other products and complaining of stomach pains, but research indicates that was likely the result of solvent and other contamination in the product as a result of the extraction process and poor quality control.
What Are The Benefits of Hemp Extract Products And Why Should I Use Them?
Hemp Extract is a whole food product, and as such, in order to comply with US regulations and FDA requirements, we are not able to make any health ‘claims’ regarding our products. We recommend you research hemp and hemp extract benefits on any third party information source that is not involved in the sale, marketing or promotion of hemp derived products. Be aware of sites that purport to be independent, but actually participate in “Affiliate Marketing” and get paid for “reviewing” or “recommending” products through their website links, and be sure your information comes from a trusted educational source for cannabis / research. Many people around the world with varying circumstances are using our Hemp Extract products with positive results. If you would like more information, you can review our Product Reviews.
Is Standard Hemp Seed Oil The Same As Full Spectrum, Total Plant Complex Hemp Extract?
NO! Standard hemp oil can be found very inexpensively at the grocery store and is produced by cold-pressing the seeds of the plant. Our nutrient rich, Full Spectrum Total Plant Complex Hemp Extract comes from the entire plant specially cultivated and extracted using a proprietary extraction process and filtration process. We then blend our concentrated hemp extract with cold-pressed hemp seed oil because it is considered a nutritious food product and provides many health benefits by itself.
