Hemp is one of the earliest known domesticated plants, cultivated by civilizations for approximately 12,000 years. With so many wonderful benefits, hemp seeds are one of nature's most perfect foods and contain high levels of vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene and are rich in protein, carbohydrates, minerals and fiber. Hemp protein is considered the most easily digestible form of protein in the food chain, with an excellent 3:1 balance of omega 3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
There is a lot of confusion about the difference between hemp and marijuana since the two plants look identical. Though they are both varieties of cannabis, they are not the same. Hemp belongs to the species Cannabis sativa L and it contains 0.3% or less of the psychoactive compound delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In contrast, marijuana plants contain 5% to 20% of THC. Another difference is that hemp plants usually contain significantly more cannabidiol (CBD) which is a compound that actually counteracts the psychoactivity of THC and has significant medical benefits.
"Rafael Mechoulam, an Israeli scientist, first discovered the endocannabinoid system. He also was the first person to identify and isolate CBD, THC, and many of the other known cannabinoids (CBN, CBC, CBG, THCa,CBDa, etc). Mechoulam has become known as the grandfather of cannabis due to his extensive research and contributions to cannabinoid study. Cannabidiol "CBD" has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health."
Human physiology as well as the physiology of all animals, produce cannabinoids naturally. The natural chemicals produced by the body that interact within the Endocannabinoid system are called cannabinoids.
Therefore, the receptors found throughout the body all respond to the hemp plant phytocannabinoids when they enter the body just as they do with our bodies' natural cannabinoids. The phytocannabinoids bind to the receptors that need them most creating a balanced system. Without this balance the body therefore can become dis-eased.
Plant phytocannabinoids CBD, are a non-psychoactive "will not get you or your animals high" and is a healthy, natural way to provide balance in the body of a human or animal.
We are encouraged to know, dogs and other animals suffering from stress, anxiety, illness, appetite loss, inflammation and pain- have been known to receive relief from these and many more ailments with the use of CBD.
For those wanting the option to control the dosage, you can simply adjust as needed as the pipette dropper is easy to gauge the CBD oil amount by drop given. For those pets that may have food sensitivities to some of the CBD cookie treats on the market today, will certainly enjoy the option of the tincture oil. Since the CBD tincture oil is administered orally (directly in the mouth) it can also deliver a more immediate effect for your pets. It can also be added to your pets food (for immediate consumption) for those who are mouth sensitive. The tincture can also be massaged into the soft paw pads for absorption, this may encourage licking the tincture as well. You can also try adding some tincture in the palm of your hand, alot of dogs enjoy the taste!
