Hemp CBD Products: From A Pet Owner's Perspective.
When it comes to giving hemp supplements to your pet, there are a few important things to keep in mind as a guardian.
Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Vs. CBD Isolate
You might see these terms thrown around quite often when explaining various products that are said to benefit your pet's health in certain ways, and it can be rather confusing to take in. Full spectrum hemp oil and CBD isolate are two completely different products.
Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
This is a whole plant extraction, preserving hundreds of compounds from the hemp plant, that are therapeutic, one of the main one's being Cannabidiol (or CBD). Others include therapeutic phytocannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, CBN, terpenes, flavonoids, as well as essential vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, and chlorophyll. All of these compounds have a synergistic interaction with each other (also known as the Entourage Effect) and the more that are present, the better. This improves the overall therapeutic value of the hemp oil. You will also notice that full spectrum oil is murky and dark in color.
This is CBD in its purest form. This is a highly processed extraction, removing everything recognizable from the hemp plant except the molecule CBD. It is often found in the form of white powder, or crystals, and can be mixed into nearly anything.
What We Use
After working with top veterinarians in the field, we have found that the most beneficial and therapeutic hemp oil to use for pets is raw, full spectrum oil that is phytocannabinoid rich, while retaining as much of the hemp plant as possible. Bailey's CBD products are all natural, contain no additives, no preservatives, and are made with organically grown hemp. This is so important to keep in mind when choosing a CBD-based product for your pet, because at the end of the day, we all want what's best to help our pet's live healthy, age gracefully, and feel complete. And remember, a healthy pet is a happy pet!
Is Bailey's CBD Safe For My Pet?
Yes, it is safe. Because our products are virtually free of THC, there is no intoxicating effect. However, phytocannabinoids like those found in Bailey's CBD products are instrumental in our body's regulatory system and support important functions, such as: appetite, digestion, immune function, inflammation, pain, mood, sleep, reproduction/fertility, motor control, temperature regulation, and memory. The overall effect is that the body achieves homeostasis, and all of it's systems are balanced.
