Cannabidiol (CBD) for Dogs – Safety & Things to Consider

Before digging deeper into this article, please be sure check out our article on CBD for Dogs: The Basics to learn more about CBD and THC, and the health benefits of giving CBD to your dogs.

Is CBD safe for dogs?

The short answer: yes!

CBD is safe for dogs in reasonable doses. But, like with conventional medications, there are potential side effects and concerns about contamination, which we’ll explain.

Side Effects

While clinical research is still very limited on how CBD impacts dogs, early studies looked into how drugs are processed by the body (known as pharmacokinetics), tolerance, and safety of CBD in dogs.

In one study, four male Beagles were provided 2 and 8 mg/kg CBD oil, revealing an elimination half life (the time required for the amount of drug in the body to decrease by half) of 4.2 hrs and no apparent side effects. One thing that was noted is increased serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP), 1 which is a common enzyme measured in bloodwork. While elevations of this enzyme may not cause any issues in a dog itself, it could indicate the potential for interactions with other drugs that are metabolized by the liver.

Further pharmacokinetic studies have revealed that CBD is fat soluble, and readily absorbed into tissues. However, it is subject to the “first pass effect,” which means that when taken orally, the concentration is significantly reduced before entering circulation, especially when not given with food. 2 In 30 dogs who were provided with 75 and 150 mg CBD as oral capsules, oral oil, and transdermal cream, it was found that absorption was higher at higher doses and most favorable with the form of oral CBD oil. 3

Another study examining the tolerability of 10 and 20 mg/kg body weight per day of CBD capsules, oil, and transdermal cream for 6 weeks noted increased serum ALP levels as a possible adverse effect, which could indicate liver problems, and warrants more research. 4 Additionally, all dogs in this study developed diarrhea, so further research is required to determine if an association with CBD use exists. 4

It’s important to note that to examine tolerability, these pharmacokinetic studies used CBD doses higher than is expected to be used clinically (≤5 mg/kg body weight daily), and found that even at high doses (≥10 mg/kg body weight daily) CBD side effects were minimal. 4,5

When dog owners were asked about observed side effects of canine cannabis products, they commonly noted sedation, increased appetite, and dry mouth. Less frequently, they noted lack of energy, vomiting, and panic. 6,7 US veterinarians with experience using canine CBD products noted sedation, vomiting, increased appetite, anxiety, diarrhea, decreased heart rate, and anorexia as some of the more commonly seen side effects. 8

The takeaway: overall, especially compared to some of the side effects of some conventional medications for similar conditions, CBD at reasonable doses (≤5 mg/kg body weight daily) appears to be clinically well tolerated by dogs .

Unregulated Industry = Contamination Concerns

CBD isn’t necessarily the concern when it comes to cannabis products for dogs. It’s THC, which, while used both recreationally and medicinally by humans, is toxic to dogs at certain doses. 3 More information on the the difference between CBD and THC here.

This difference in tolerability is thought to be due to the increased number of cannabinoid receptors present in the canine brain, creating a heightened sensitivity. 2 Fatality from ingestion of THC is rare, but common signs of THC poisoning in dogs include vomiting, delirium, increased sensitivity to touch and light, decreased heart rate, increased saliva, and overall lethargy. 2

So if THC is toxic to dogs, and CBD is beneficial, the solution appears clear: avoid giving them THC. Right? Unfortunately, the veterinary CBD industry is currently unregulated, which means it’s not so simple. Legally, in the US, hemp (and thus hemp-derived CBD) must contain no more than 0.3% THC. 9 However, one study found that several CBD products, including oils, creams, and capsules all contained less CBD than advertised, and found contamination of THC. 4

Another study analyzing 75 cannabis products found only 17% to to have accurate product labels. 10,11 And a study looking at the composition of 13 commercially available hemp CBD oils found the majority had lower CBD levels than advertised, and many were contaminated with THC. 12

Together these studies have revealed the label inaccuracy and variety in nomenclature that exists on current veterinary CBD products. Further, FDA product testing of CBD products revealed some products didn’t even contain CBD at all. 13

The lack of regulation of products brings concerns not only about THC contamination, but further contamination concerns around synthetic cannabinoids, sourcing, and processing practices. 2,14 Synthetic cannabinoids, while mainly banned under the 2011 Synthetic Drug Control Act, could still contaminate pet products — and they’ve been found to be even more toxic to dogs than THC. 2,7 Solvent-based extraction of CBD can leave chemical contaminants which can pose health concerns. 2 Legality concerns also mean many companies source cannabis from abroad, which could lead to contamination with heavy metals and pesticides. 13 So while CBD itself is proving beneficial for dogs, poor-quality CBD products are complicating safety.

The growing acceptance and legal status of cannabis products in the US also means more opportunities for pets to be exposed to it. Exposure of dogs to THC has risen not just due to poor-quality pet products but also because dogs may get into their owners’ THC-containing products. Edibles left out look just like a tasty treat to dogs! And human products, especially gummies, are additionally often sweetened with xylitol which is toxic to dogs. 15 Unfortunately, calls to the Pet Poison Helpline have skyrocketed in recent years, with calls reporting marijuana consumption increasing by 448% between 2011 and 2017. 6

We’ll go into full legal details later, but complicated legal status hampers research, and veterinarians often feel unsure if they can discuss and recommend CBD. The FDA recently ruled CBD as not Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for pet food use, due to liver concerns, possible drug interactions, contamination, and concerns of side effects including mood changes, sedation, and diarrhea. 14

This ruling has caused concern among pet owners, further challenging manufacturers’ ability to produce quality products, and continuing to silent veterinarians. Veterinarians should be the primary source of information for consumers, but unfortunately they often rely on CBD company websites, which can be unreliable and pose further safety concerns. 6 With the lack of regulation and research, it is often in the vet’s best interest to express caution to pet owners interested in CBD products unless the vet has specific knowledge of individual products that are safe and effective. 16

What is full spectrum CBD oil vs CBD Isolate?

When you purchase CBD oil for your dog, you may come across the terms “full spectrum” or “isolate.” What’s the difference?

The main difference is that “full spectrum CBD” includes other cannabinoids and terpenes naturally present in the cannabis plant. However, this means that trace amounts of THC (< 0.3%) may be present, and while this low level is generally argued to be not an issue for dogs, it can cause hesitancy by some vets. 17

“CBD isolate” is, as the name implies, isolated and pure CBD, with no additional cannabinoids, no terpenes, no THC, nothing but CBD. 18 So if CBD isolate is pure it must be better, right? Not necessarily.

While CBD isolate does have the benefit of being used in more clinical studies, and is therefore more “trusted,” it misses out on what is known as the “entourage effect”. 19 The “entourage effect” is the concept that cannabinoids and terpenes (another class of compounds in cannabis) have a synergistic effect on one another, and are thus more effective together. 1,18 This means that full spectrum CBD oil can potentially be more effective than CBD isolate.

Common additional cannabinoids found in full spectrum CBD oil include: cannabidivarin (CBDV), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), all of which have suspected supplemental neuromodulating properties. 13,17 Additionally, terpenes have many known therapeutic benefits, provide cannabis plants with distinct aromas and flavors, and are found in a wide variety of plants and spices. Common terpenes present in full spectrum CBD oil include: beta-caryophyllene, limonene, myrcene, linalool, and humulene. 18 Additional cannabinoid and terpene content will vary among different products, as they vary in different plants, and you’ll have to contact the manufacturer (if not on the label) for full product analysis.

You may also come across CBD oil termed “broad spectrum.” This is essentially a cross between full spectrum and isolate, where CBD is isolated and selectively combined with specific cannabinoids and terpenes. This allows for THC to be removed entirely, the “entourage effect” to be present, and specialized formulas to be made. 20

The debate on which form to provide to dogs is ongoing in the veterinarian community. Some are advocates of the “entourage effect” while others appreciate the clinical evidence behind CBD isolate. 17 While studies in mice have demonstrated additional health benefits with the use of full spectrum CBD compared to isolate, 21 these studies do not yet exist for dogs. However, full spectrum products have been used in recent and on-going canine clinical trials for epilepsy, 22 arthritis, 1,23 and cancer. 24 Emerging evidence is demonstrating the therapeutic benefits of full spectrum CBD products on canine health problems, but direct comparisons between full spectrum and isolate on health outcomes for dogs have yet to be made.

How do I ensure a quality CBD product?

Since this is an unregulated industry, and the FDA is not doing much policing, customers are left to do their own due diligence. 25 Hemp products for pets are not regulated as food or drugs, so they are most commonly treated like supplements, which means a lack of testing. 16

So, when looking to buy a canine CBD product: a) don’t price shop and b) keep an eye out for these things:

  • Third-party lab testing.Why? – Quality testing from a third party lab helps the consumer know, from an unbiased source, that the product is free of dangerous contaminants and synthetic cannabinoids. 5,13 Look for an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited lab to ensure the lab has been vetted for quality and competency. 26 Lab results should be easy to find and view on the manufacturer’s website. 19
  • Testing for CBD & THC levels.Why? – The lack of regulation can lead to poor quality products that may not even contain CBD. In 2015, the FDA tested several CBD pet products and found the majority to have CBD levels less than what was stated, or none at all. They also found contamination of THC greater than the legal limit of 0.3%. 2 High quality products should indicate on label (or website) the % of CBD and THC present in the product, from lab results. 12,27
  • CO2 or Cold-pressed Extraction.Why? – There are a variety of ways to extract CBD from cannabis plants (hemp or marijuana). Overall, there is still a lot of variation in extraction results, which often depend on the chemical composition of the starting cannabis material. 28 However, some methods involve heat or chemical solvents, which can lead to breakdown of CBD content or contaminate the product. 29,30 Heat has especially been linked to loss of terpene content, which is important for full spectrum benefits. While certain natural solvents can eliminate the risk of toxic contamination, as with heat based extractions, they often produce lower and inconsistent yields of CBD. 30 Cold-pressing techniques have historically produced lower CBD yields as well, but have minimized degradation. Emerging cold-pressed extraction methods, utilizing enzymes, are beginning to demonstrate higher yields while maintaining quality. 31 While CO 2 extraction methods tend to be more expensive, they’re safe, efficient, can produce high yields of CBD, and are less damaging to the environment. 28,30 While the ideal extraction method is still under review, CO 2 or cold-based extraction methods are less likely to be contaminated and do not destroy the product. 5,13
  • Organic & US Grown.Why? – Non-organic cannabis sources could be contaminated with heavy metals and pesticides. 5,27 If conventionally grown, proof of contaminant testing should be made available. Further, US grown cannabis is a safer bet to avoid contamination from heavy metals often present in cannabis products sourced from abroad. 5,13
  • Liquid Form.Why? – Oil or tincture allows easy adjustment of dose and allows for better absorption of CBD, since it’s lipid soluble. 5,27 Isolate = powder, and is better if it’s in oil for absorption, so it is often added back into an oil. 10
  • Free of additional additives & preservatives.Why? – The less additives, the purer the CBD, which is desirable. 32 Further additives and preservatives could have additional health risks, so it is best to avoid them. 5,27
  • Pet specific product.Why? – Human products are dosed differently, 33 and can contain additives that are fine for humans but toxic to dogs, like xylitol, a chemical sweetener. 15
  • Health Background.Why? – To further ensure reputation, experience, intention, and quality of product. Companies that have partnered with the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) must follow strict quality standards and are aware of legality considerations. 34 Check out reviews from other consumers for efficacy and company reputation. 19,33,35

What dosage should I give?

While proper dose is crucial to ensure benefits, dog owners can rest easy knowing even at very high doses of CBD (i.e. 20 mg/kg body weight per day) there have been minimal adverse effects reported and that, overall, CBD is considered relatively low-risk. 4,5 However, do note that higher doses can still lead to some unwanted side effects, so it is best to follow dosing guidelines. Overall, the appropriate dose to give your dog will depend on their size , the product you’re using, and the condition being treated.

Every dog is different, and dose adjustments may have to be made over time. As a rule of thumb start small to avoid negative side effects, and increase as seen fit to maximize benefits.

Anecdotal reports have suggested benefits with doses between 0.5 – 2 mg/kg body weight per day. 1 However, based on scientific reports, benefits have been seen with starting doses between 2 – 5 mg/kg body weight per day , which for a 15 kg dog (~35 lbs) would be between 30 – 75 mg CBD per day. 4,36 Weight and size are generally the basis of dosing guidelines, 32 but monitoring your pet and adjusting dose as necessary is ideal. Starting out with a smaller dose not only helps prevent side effects, but also avoids unnecessary product use. 4

Generally, effects can be seen within 30-60 minutes and last about 6-8 hours. 33,36 Pharmacokinetic studies have displayed a relatively rapid elimination of CBD, suggesting a dosing schedule of 2-3 times per day. 1,37 While very higher doses, such as 20 mg/kg body weight per day, have been shown to be relatively well tolerated, it is recommended to use the lowest effective dose, as side effects, including liver problems, are still being researched. 4

Product websites should also provide additional dosing information calibrated to the strength of their product. Many manufacturers make products of varying potency, ideal for different sized dogs, and often adjust their dosing guidelines for oils to the number of “drops” required. For example, one company sells 125 mg CBD bottles (0.13 mg CBD per drop), 250mg CBD bottles (0.25 mg CBD per drop), 750 mg CBD bottles (0.76 mg per drop), and 1500 mg CBD bottles (0.76 mg CBD per drop). Dosing guidelines are subsequently adjusted based on potency and explained by the number of drops to give, every 6-8 hours, based on your dog’s size and the condition you wish to treat.

How can I administer CBD to my dog?

There are a variety of pet CBD products available. The main differences involve absorption rate, ease of administration, and available doses. See the table below for more detailed descriptions of available products.

Form of CBD

Product Description

Oil/Tinctures

Either available as full spectrum or CBD isolate. An oil tincture indicates the presence of other compounds (i.e. terpenes). Found to have best absorption and fastest (10-30 min). 3,36 Allows for easy adjustments of dose. 27 Administered orally and absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Some dogs resist dosing and dislike flavor. 5

Capsules

Encapsulated oil or powder, administered orally. Oil is more readily absorbed, as CBD is lipophilic (fat soluble). 38 Takes a bit longer (30-60 min) than pure oil to be absorbed and see effects. 36 Can select desired dose from a variety of available options. Can be hidden in treats for ease of consumption. 5

Topical Creams

Not a typical form of administration, but when used frequently applied to ears or bare skin (no fur or can’t lick easily). 5,10 Often used for pain relief from rashes, joint stiffness, and muscle aches but with unknown effectiveness, 5 and can sometimes cause a skin reaction. 4

Edible Treats

Made with a generic, well-tolerated dose. The dose is unlikely to be therapeutic for medical conditions. Must be digested before effects are seen (30-60 min). 36 Easy, fun, and tasty way to give your dog CBD with a variety of dose options, flavors, and treat forms available. 5

Where can I buy them?

A 2018 survey of dog owners’ use and perception of cannabis products revealed that the most common places owners purchased cannabis products for their dog were online (72.9%), pet stores (21.95%), human dispensaries (15.7%), from friends/family (10.1%), and from their veterinarian (9.6%). 7 The most common forms of CBD products purchased are pet specific capsules (56.9%), pet specific treats (29.3%), human topicals (8.5%), pet specific topicals (7%), human capsules (3.9%), and human edibles (2.6%)(This survey did not include liquid oils/tinctures ).

Availability of pet CBD products from different sources, including online and at dispensaries, differs between states. 2,39 Access to quality products can be an issue for some owners seeking to provide CBD to their dog.

Who is buying them?

The same survey revealed common characteristics among those purchasing canine CBD products. Gender and legal status were not associated with the purchasing of canine cannabis products, however, age and education status were. Those buying CBD for their dogs were found to be older and more educated. 7

Other Considerations

If you feel CBD is something you’d like to try for your dog, consider addressing it with your veterinarian, especially if your dog is taking any medications, as CBD can interact with certain medications, or reduce the liver’s ability to metabolize them and hamper their effectiveness. 5 Be thorough in your search for an appropriate product and demand quality. If you see the positive or negative impact CBD makes for your dog, join the discussion, help be a resource for other dog owners, and encourage your veterinarian to be part of the journey with you.

Full Spectrum CBD VS CBD Isolate

CBD has become quite a popular product in recent years. This is because its benefits have become more apparent and well-known. It contains cannabinoids that help the body and its biology with natural healing.

You may be wondering how CBD works. This will be explained in full so that the comparison of full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate can be better understood further in this article.

What is CBD and How Does It Work?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of just 100+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. As well, it also lends its name to products like CBD oil and CBD dog treats. While called CBD, in the majority of these products, you can find all the 100+ of the cannabinoids along with other compounds found in cannabis called terpenes. We call these CBD products full spectrum CBD. They are almost always taken from the hemp variety of cannabis plants to avoid a single cannabinoid found in large concentrations in the marijuana, another variety of the cannabis plant.

Out of all the cannabinoids found in cannabis, THC is pretty much single-handedly responsible for the high associated with marijuana. While hemp has THC, there isn’t a lot with legal industrial containing no more than .3% THC. With only trace amounts of THC, CBD products can’t cause a high and avoid the side effects associated with THC. CBD works by partnering naturally with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The body contains endocannabinoids similar to the cannabinoids found in cannabis. And they all work alongside to help with natural healing. This can help with a wide variety of ailments and issues within the body that need relief.

How Does CBD Benefit Health?

With a multitude of studies backing millions of anecdotal reports, CBD and the other cannabinoids have shown to lower inflammation in the body, lower pain, and even help people with rare seizure disorders. Research shows products like CBD oils can also help with insomnia, nausea, and more.

What Is Full-Spectrum CBD Oil?

When a CBD product says it’s full spectrum, it’s telling you that it contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes found in a hemp plant. While the cannabinoid CBD is likely the most therapeutic compound in cannabis that can never cause a high, it’s not the only one. And besides working with our endocannabinoids, cannabinoids found in cannabis work with each other called the entourage effect. The entourage effect gives full spectrum CBD, along with broad spectrum CBD, an amazing advantage as you’re about to see.

What Is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolates are pure cannabidiol and and contain none of the other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that full spectrum CBD products do.

CBD Isolate vs. Full-Spectrum CBD Comparison

The differences in CBD isolates and full spectrum CBDs can be quite noticeable since full spectrum CBD contains all the beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. Most find full spectrum CBD oil offers more therapeutic benefits than CBD isolate. Thanks to the synergy of the entourage effect in full spectrum, the cannabinoids and terpenes work more fully within the body, allowing for significantly better absorption when comparing CBD isolate to full spectrum.

CBD isolate does offer a few key advantages vs. full spectrum, and that is it’s 100% THC-free. Some can’t handle the taste of CBD oil and do better with the isolate vs. full spectrum. Then in very rare cases, even the trace amounts of THC in full spectrum CBD can make them a bit tired.

There are benefits to both CBD isolate and full spectrum. Full-spectrum cannabidiol oil has a wider range of potential health benefits than CBD isolate. However, people can do well with CBD isolate, and it does still offer medical advantages.

Is CBD Safe?

CBD isolate vs. full spectrum CBD, which is safer?

Whether isolate, full spectrum, or broad spectrum, research shows CBD has a very safe side effect profile, with most people and pets seeing no issues at all.

Whether it’s isolate vs. full spectrum, CBD items contain little to no THC, ensuring it won’t have any of the psychoactive effects we associate with the high from marijuana. In fact, the legal varieties of CBD have no more than 0.3% THC. The only thing a person typically feel after consuming CBD oil is less pain, less anxiety, and fewer symptoms of their medical issues.

How To Know Which CBD Product Is Which?

Your best bet is reading the label as any good CBD item should list whether it’s CBD isolate vs. full spectrum vs. broad spectrum. There are some other ways to tell, however.

You’ll most commonly find CBD isolate in a powder that’s around 99% pure CBD and 100% THC-free. While there are times you’ll find CBD isolate oil, you won’t find full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD powder.

Full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD oils can help animals like dogs, cats, and horses. Just like humans, animals can get sick with illnesses. Studies have shown that animals can reap the same benefits that humans do with CBD. CBD has been shown to help with conditions like arthritis, epilepsy, inflammation, and much more. It can even help with pets that have separation anxiety!

Often dark-amber and in a completely liquid form. There is often a distinct smell and look to it. Obviously, an oil is very different from a powder. CBD oils will be labeled on the bottle, and it will typically say “CBD Oil”, “whole-plant”, “Broad Spectrum CBD”, and “Full Spectrum CBD Oil”. Also, some companies will show third-party independent labs that verify the presence of CBD, the other cannabinoids, and terpenes, and the other compounds found in hemp extract.

Can CBD Help Animals?

CBD can help animals like dogs, cats, and horses. Just like humans, animals can get sick with illnesses. Studies have shown that animals can reap the same benefits that humans do with CBD. CBD has been shown to help with conditions like arthritis, epilepsy, inflammation, and much more. It can even help with pets that have separation anxiety!

What To Look For In CBD Oil

Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is created from hemp extract, which is from a plant that naturally occurs. The process of extraction is only to separate the cannabidiol and the other cannabinoids and terpenes from the rest of the plant material. In broad spectrum extraction, THC will be limited while increasing the potency of the rest of the CBD oil. Both full spectrum CBD oil and broad spectrum CBD oil have none of the psychoactive properties associated with marijuana in CBD oil.

Organic and pesticide-free products are very helpful for animals that are out in the environment every day. It’s hard to avoid some harsh chemicals like pesticides in just the course of living life and having to be outdoors. However, the products that you can control are important. That’s why we craft our CBD.

CBD is side-effect-free and chemical-free and all organic. The health conditions that they could see improve are numerous. If you simply want to add it as an addition to their health, that is perfectly fine as there are no serious side effects associated with cannabidiol. Because it works with the endocannabinoid system in the body, it is simply adding to what the body already naturally has and does in itself. Animals that have anxiety, inflammation, pain, eating issues, stomach pain, arthritis, and much more can certainly benefit from CBD supplementation. Buying CBD products for dogs and cats is not as hard as one might think. There are now companies that provide these products with special formulations for animals like dogs, cats, and horses. Dosing instructions are often provided directly on the product or through the company’s website or customer service number. It is vital to get this information, so that there is no confusion on how much to give.

Cannabidiol for animals that have serious health conditions can be a major help to go along with their veterinary treatment. Many medical conditions have an element of discomfort, inflammation, or pain in animals. For pet parents that worry that CBD wouldn’t help their animal with a serious health condition, it is imperative that they realize that worry is for naught. It may be able to help reduce their pain and discomfort that is a part of the health condition, and that can hugely improve their quality of life. For example, lower inflammation and pain levels in an animal may make it possible for them to gain better mobility. This is very important for their quality of life and their ability to get needed exercise. Many sick animals have little motivation to move when they have a lot of pain and inflammation to fight merely to get up. Cannabidiol can help fight the inflammation and pain and make it possible for an animal to begin getting up and move around more than they had previously. This is a huge benefit to animals as much as it is to humans. So even serious health conditions can be helped with this therapeutic supplement.

Many veterinarians are now offering CBD oils and products to their patients to give to their pets. This should be quite encouraging to people that have animals and are wondering if their vet would approve. There are some respected veterinarians in the field around the United States and other countries that are openly selling and advocating for the benefits of CBD as a therapeutic tool for health conditions. Although there are still some vets that are skeptical out there, it is slowly becoming more accepted as more studies are coming out from reputable sources. Unfortunately, there are still misunderstandings in the general public about CBD. Some people still feel as though it must make animals and humans high. However, this is not the case. Cannabidiol products in the United States must contain no more than .3% THC to be legal for sale and consumption — though our CBD oil contains less than 0.3% THC. This makes it impossible for people or animals to get high from cannabidiol. Animals and humans alike can get all of the benefits from it without the worry of side effects or getting a “high” from it.

CBD is being investigated all over the world for many uses. However, at this time, as the manufacturer of CBD products, we are not allowed to discuss that subject publicly nor we are not allowed to imply that CBD can be used for any specific treatment.

How Do I Choose a Quality CBD Product?

Choosing a CBD product comes down to personal preference and some research. Choosing CBD isolate vs. full spectrum CBD will come down to personal preference. Thanks to all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in full spectrum CBD, it along with broad spectrum CBD are our favorite options for both humans and pets. While isolates are the purest form of CBD, many of the hopeful benefits once thought it could deliver from more potency to concerns over drug tests have proven to be untrue.

The key to buying full spectrum CBD is purchasing it from a reliable and quality source. There are many companies that claim to be selling these, but they are not what they claim. It is imperative to research the company selling the product and make sure that they have good reviews from other buyers and that they can back up their claims. Many quality CBD companies have third-party lab results that show what is contained in the product that they are selling, and these lab results are often found on their website. This gives you a chance to make sure that the product you are interested in has exactly what you need or want. Researching their reputation among consumers, ensuring that they list their ingredients and that they have third-party lab results will help you in choosing a quality CBD product. For animals, there are companies that sell CBD specifically for their needs.
