What is CBD Oil?
The oil is extracted from Hemp plants, not the Cannabis plants. Both Hemp and Cannabis are different species of the same plant, Cannabis Sativa L. However, the oil extracted from Hemp contains CBD, without the THC, therefore the CBD oil from Hemp is non-psychoactive, so it does not get you high. It is legal in all 50 states.

Could Your Dog benefit from Cannabinoids?
Many dogs suffer from one or more types of anxiety, which range from separation anxiety, to anxiety about riding in a car, fear of fireworks, or anxiety about thunderstorms. CBD oil has proven to have beneficial effects on dogs, just like humans in greatly reducing or eliminating symptoms of anxiety. It is safe and easy to use.
By activating TRPV-1 receptors, CBD oil can regulate pain perception, inflammation, and temperature in dogs. Since inflammation and swelling is the leading cause of joint pain, CBD oil is perfect for providing relief to dogs with arthritis and related joint pain.
A variety of health issues can cause seizures in dogs. CBD oil has been shown to reduce and help manage seizures brought on by epilepsy or other genetic disorders.
While CBD oil may not be able to heal a dog with cancer, it has shown the ability to reduce or suspend tumor growth, while reducing pain associated with the disease, thereby improving quality of life and extending their lifespan. At the same time, CBD oil can help increase appetite for dogs, while also stopping seizures related to cancer.

- Place drops on palm of your hand and let your dog lick the oil from your hand
- Put oil drops directly on treats or food that they eat right away.
NOTE: Do not put CBD oil in the dog’s water bowl. It will disperse to the sides of the bowl, and they might not fully ingest the CBD oil.
