With the recent passage of the Farm Bill, CBD and hemp companies seem to be popping up all over. As a consumer, this is both exciting and confusing – with the increase in options also comes an increase in misleading marketing practices. With the lack of federal regulation of CBD products, the hemp industry has had to become self-regulating.
The way that CBD and hemp companies can put their money where their mouth is, is through non-biased, independent third-party lab testing. This means that the CBD or hemp company sends samples of their products, usually for each batch made, to a third-party who works as a neutral source to run a panel of tests to discern what is actually in the product.
Third-party lab testing is not required. However, if a company does not test their products and provide that information to consumers, it should raise a red flag. On the flip side, if a CBD company is willing to be completely transparent about their products and their contents, it can be reassuring before you make a purchase.
Understanding lab results can not only clear up any confusion about the contents of a product but also give you a better understanding of what is actually going into your pet’s body. Labs are more than just one of our favorite breeds of dog — they are a way to keep the CBD industry honest and transparent.
On September 12th 2017, a horse tripped and fell on me. It landed on my left leg, crushing it. As a result, I now have complex regional nerve syndrome. This is a painful condition, in which high levels of nerve impulses are sent to my leg. It causes my leg to swell at random, change colors—sometimes it is white, red or gray with white spots. The temperature of my leg also changes from freezing cold to burning hot. Often, my knee fills with fluid. Random bruises appear all over, from my lower thigh to the tips of my toes.
Through this nightmare we discovered the amazing properties of CBD.
I started Happy Dogs Treats to help offset some of the costs that are not covered by insurance.I had such amazing results with CBD, I had to investigate and see if CBD would help our dog Dougie. The results were just fantastic.
Anxiety is not just limited to people; it is also seen in dogs. There are many dogs suffering from anxiety, stress and noise phobia. Here are some of the symptoms of anxiety to help you find out whether your dog is suffering from anxiety or not.
Happy Dogs Treats CBD may help dogs that are suffering from separation anxiety,
Dr. Silver is quoted as saying: "We have learned that the quality of the raw material providing the cannabinoids and terpenes plays the most important role to ensure successful clinical outcomes in our pets and farm animals. The ZERO THC full spectrum hemp oil from Folium Biosciences is, in my experience, one of the top hemp oil raw materials in the USA, and is absolutely safe due to it containing no THC. Numerous reports over the past 5 years have documented the potential toxicity of THC to our pets. There have been a few deaths due to THC ingestion from well-meaning pet parents giving their pets some of their own medical marijuana."
This fantastic oil extract derived from the hemp plant can help reduce inflammation, joint pain, and relieve many other physical ailments, such as seizures for our beloved furry friends.
CBD is also life-changing for dogs who suffer from anxiety and stress. Happy Dogs CBD Treats may come to your loved one’s rescue, calming and soothing your dogs when they need it most.
Five percent of dogs suffer from seizures. If your dog experiences seizures, it’s important to visit or a veterinarian. Prescribed drugs, like phenobarbital and potassium can help, but may be harmful to your dog’s organs. In many cases Happy Dogs CBD Treats may be a safer, natural alternative to minimize and reduce the severity and frequency of your dogs seizures.
A phytocannabinoid is a molecule synthesized by plants. There are 113 known phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant, including CBD and CBG. Phytocannabinoids are used to treat a number of human and animal ailments. In 2008, the journal of Neuroendocrinology Letters published a proposal that some of the chronic health problems many people face may be due to an underlying endocannabinoid deficiency, including migraines and fibromyalgia. As our understanding of phytocannabinoids and their relationship with the human body grows, millions of patients all around the world are gaining access to treating conditions that were previously untreatable.
To understand phytocannabinoids, we first have to understand our bodies’ cannabinoid receptors. When receptors interact with a cannabinoid, they send molecular-messages throughout the cells, tissues, organs, and body. We can think of a cannabinoid and a cannabinoid receptor like a lock and key. A cannabinoid “unlocks” the cannabinoid receptor by physically interacting with it- initiating changes in cells and opening the door to enormous medical benefits for the body and mind. A cannabinoid is a molecule that activates these molecular-messengers, regardless of whether the cannabinoid came from our bodies (an endocannabinoid), or if it came from a plant (a phytocannabinoid). Endocannabinoids activate the same receptors as phytocannabinoids found in Cannabis. This explains why there is enormous medical potential for the use of phytocannabinoids; our bodies possess an endogenous system that responds to what is already present in our bodies and in plants.
Within the Cannabis plant, there are 113 known phytocannabinoids. Some have been found to be more useful than others to medical patients. These components include:
The knowledge of how the endocannabinoid system relates to our physiology and medical needs grows on a daily basis because doctors, biologists and chemists contribute towards research constantly. There are two known groups of cannabinoid receptors; CB1 and CB2. Cannabinoid receptors are classified by the types of cannabinoids that they bind. For example, THC binds the CB1 receptor while CBD weakly binds the CB2 receptor. When a cannabinoid meets with a cannabinoid receptor, the message begins to resonate throughout the cell and eventually reaches out to surrounding cells in a tissue, adjacent tissues in an organ, and neighboring organs in a body. This is why the benefits of phytocannabinoids are so rich; CB1 and CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and cannabinoids help to reestablish a homeostasis that has been disrupted by genetics or lifestyle factors.
There are many conditions that are terribly debilitating and life destroying yet don't manifest any visual signs that others would identify as an illness or disability just by looking at you. They include autoimmune conditions (like lupus and hashimotos), mental health conditions (such as depression, OCD and Bipolar), chronic pain conditions (like CRPS, EDS, fibromyalgia, dysautonomia, etc), respiratory conditions (such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, etc) and heart conditions to name just a few. People who suffer from these illnesses, despite looking healthy on the outside most of the time, can be severely restricted and disabled by their symptoms.
The answer… beyond belief. As many with CRPS know, it sucks having this pain that refuses to go away. So we started looking outside of western medicine. Outside of Opiods and medications with many side effects. That’s when we found CBD. I didn’t think it would help because nothing else did. Much to my surprise, it did help. It took away the muscle spasms and the extreme pain. It helped me regain confidence. And walk again without throbbing pain. It meant a lot to me how Jimmie was so helpful and kind and compassionate. I can’t begin to thank her for all she does for me, it’s a huge blessing! Jimmie Faye's CBD was the biggest life changer I have had in the last year.
