Hemp extract is a chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of over 85 unique compounds discovered in hemp, known as cannabinoids. It is considered to be the most beneficial. The extract is an example of a phytocannabinoid. Although our bodies can naturally produce its own endocannabinoids that bind to cannabinoid receptors in both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, phytocannabinoids are known to help to kickstart our central regulatory system.
Cannabinoids, which can be either consumed or produced naturally by the body, are chemical compounds that interact with the body’s central regulatory system. This system is known to manage homeostasis and affect bodily processes such as appetite, mood and sleep.
How does Hemp Extract work in pets?
It works the same way it works in people, by stimulating the endocannabinoid system to create balance in the body.
Is THC necessary for Hemp Extract to work?
No. This was once a common belief before more research was done regarding hemp’s other cannabinoids. New information has shown that THC and phyto-cannabinoids can sufficiently function without the other.
Is THC safe to use in pets?
No. We do not recommend giving THC to animals. Dogs have been found to be highly sensitive and potentially toxic to its psychoactive properties and is potentially deadly. Cats have been shown to be less susceptible to effects of THC however it is best to avoid the psychotropic compound all together.
How much do I give my pet?
Choosing the correct dose for your dog can be pretty confusing. The dosage can also differ depending on the condition or behavior you’re trying to treat.
You must also consider your dog’s weight and underlying health issues. These factors must all be taken into consideration.
As a basic dosing rule for both cats and dogs: 1-5 mg of hemp extract for every 10 pounds of body weight. It is best to start out with the lowest amount and monitor the results. Take a journal and observe your pet’s responses and adjust accordingly.
What Is The Difference Between Hemp Oil And Hemp Extract?
There’s so much confusion between these terms. Some people refer to hemp oil when speaking about hemp seed oil. Hemp oil from hemp seeds is primarily composed of dietary fats, which means it can provide benefits for body and skin however it lacks a lot of essential benefits of the whole plant.
Hemp extract, or phytocannabinoids are found naturally in the leaves and flowers and are also known as the areal parts. After extracting cannabinoids,and then removing the THC, we are left with a Broad Spectrum hemp extract that retains a wide range of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, omegas, and flavonoids, all of which are found naturally in hemp plant.
Our products are 100% THC free for a reason.Hemp products are undoubtedly helping millions of pets with wide ranging issues. It’s non-psychoactive (if the THC is removed) and non-toxic, showing no potential for abuse or system toxicity. Leading scientists and veterinarians whose research led them to understand that THC is not needed, nor does it change the result and efficacy of a hemp extract product for pets. Because some studies indicate that THC in fact can be dangerous, even in small amounts, it was clear to us that our products had to be 100% free of THC. After the raw material is extracted, we remove 100% of the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) out of the plant extract.
Studies have shown that even small amounts of THC can be dangerous. Many studies have shown that dogs have the same kind of endocannabinoid receptors as human with one huge difference: Dogs have a much higher concentration of these receptors in their brain than humans do making it much more lethal in pets than humans. WellPUR organics for Pets is the purist and safest CBD product on the market because of this. Aside from the potential health dangers resulting from giving THC to dogs, there are also potential legal and regulatory issues for retailers. THC Free hemp products work just as effectively without the potential health issues of products containing THC.
How does it help our pets? Hemp products work for PETS the same way it works in people, by stimulating the endocannabinoid system to create balance in the body which helps with a host of medicinally beneficial properties.
It is a crucial molecular system that the body uses to help maintain homeostasis. We are hardwired with a master control system called the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is made up of cell receptors that act as messengers, giving your body specific directions on what to do. Some of these messengers are located in the brain and the spinal cord. Others are located in the immune cells the gastrointestinal track and everything outside the brain and spinal cord. The diversity of the receptor location shows just how important they are for day-to-day bodily functions.They also help maintain optimal balance in the body known as homeostasis.
The average size of our help oil droplet in water soluble applications is 25 nanometers, compared with using the industry standard liposomal delivery method. The small size of our oil droplets leads to a much larger surface area of the hemp oil droplets, leading to a much higher and superior absorption in the bloodstream.
What is the difference of Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate?
The three most popular types of hemp extract used today are: Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate. It is important to know the difference between all three so you can make an educated decision on what is right for you.
Hemp extract with all cannabinoids, including small trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive part of the plan). It contains essential vitamins, minerals, Omega fatty acids and terpenes. Those subject to drug testing should be cautious when it comes to full spectrum products. The THC found in full spectrum hemp oil products is minimal (less than 0.3%) but can still trigger a positive drug test.
Hempextract retains all the concentrations of cannabinoids, all the essential vitamins, minerals, Omega fatty acids and terpenes found in raw PCR hemp extract. The exception is that all trace amounts of THC are extracted to 0.0% amounts. Broad Spectrum is an excellent choice for individuals that can’t have any traces of THC in their system, whether for medical, personal or legal reasons.
Hemp extract can also be isolated and purified. In its pure form is known in the industry as isolate. In their pure form, and at room temperature, hemp extract ismade into solid crystals. In its purified form it is colorless and odorless. This process removes all other cannabinoids, oils, plant material, waxes, & chlorophyll.
