“CBD is a wonderful compound and it can have a lot of beneficial properties, so it’s definitely something worth considering if you have an animal that you think it might help with.
When you’re looking for products, make sure it’s a full spectrum product. That means the full constituent of cannabinoids are present. It’s as close to the plant as possible and it’s known that this is the most effective.
Second, organic CBD oil is super important, and the rest of the ingredients should be organic as well. Quality is everything. And if you have the option to get something that’s organic, that’s a great place to go.
Also, know where the hemp that’s being sourced, extracted, and turned into the products is grown. Check that it’s third party lab tested to make sure that you’re getting what is advertised to be in the product.
A little independent research can go a long way and in 10 to 15 minutes on Google, you can learn a lot. There’s a great resource called Project CBD, which is one of the few places to get information that’s not also pushing a brand.”
