CBD 'K-9': Cannabidiol CO2 extract from industrial hemp plant based in MCT Coconut oil and hemp essential oil. This hemp essential oil with CBD provides the full therapeutic action of the hemp plant without any psychoactive THC present. We also add Rosemary antioxidant to preserve freshness.
Our 'K-9' formula has been specially balanced with your pets in mind. It is pet safe and has been shown to have tremendous results with dogs! CBD has been shown to help with joint pain, anxiety, sleep, and overall pain management for animals with an endocannabinoid system (such as dogs).
Dosage Discussion: We formulated all sizes of our CBD to be 1mg of CBD every 2 Drops (dropper included). We recommend starting with 3-5 mg (6-10 drops) for a medium sized dog (40-60lbs) to start, and ramping up from there to get the desired result. With bigger dogs higher doses could be used, and with smaller dogs lower quantities would be a good place to start.
Remember animals bodies react differently and some may need more or less CBD to target the problem. For even more information check out the CBD information in our drop down menu below.
Our Pet Friendly CBD 'K-9' contains pure CBD CO2 extract in MCT Coconut oil. Each of our ingestable formulas contain 1mg of CBD in each 2 drops. 5ml contains 102mg CBD, 15ml contains 306mg, 30ml contains 611mg CBD, and 100ml contains 2038mg CBD.
The Ananda Apothecary CBD Formulas are different!
Many formulas make it difficult to accurately measure the amount of CBD you are using. However, because our formulas contain 1mg CBD in every two drops, the measurment is simple.
What is CBD?
If you want to really want to learn all you can, here is a peer-reviewed journal article about CBD and how it works in the body - and why certain formulations are better than others. See CBD, Nature's Most Profound Synergy Yet.
Briefly, cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of the hemp plant. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid. The CBD extract from which all our blends are made is a full spectrum extract of a Hemp strain of Cannabis sativa. Hemp is ideal for cannabidiol (CBD oil) extractions as it is naturally high in CBD and low in THC. Because of the extraction from legally grown and extracted Hemp, it is legal for shipment to all 50 states.
Our cannabidiol (CBD oil) extract is a full spectrum cannabinoid extract. Besides the high content of CBD there are also present naturally occurring trace amounts of other cannabinoids, which many scientists and doctors think work in synergy to support the whole human endo-cannabinoid system.
Most preclinical studies with cannabidiol utilize synthetic, single-molecule CBD produced by biochemical laboratories for research purposes – whereas whole plant CBD-rich extractions typically include trace amounts of THC and more than 400 other compounds, which interact synergistically to confer a holistic “entourage effect” so that the therapeutic impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
How is CBD made, and how do we ensure the same quality from batch to batch?
The CBD oil is extracted through supercritical CO2 extraction of 'industrial' Hemp (Cannabis sativa), which naturally has a very low concentration of THC. The raw CBD oil is then further refined to remove plant waxes and concentrate the CBD. Each batch is analyzed via High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to quantify its purity, and guarantee you receive precise amounts of CBD in each and every one of our formulations. See the Certificate of Analysis here.
Our testing ensures you are receiving the concentration of CBD you're paying for, and that there is no more than a trace of THC, and to ensure there are no pathogens in the oil whatsoever (yeast, mold, fungus, etc.)
