NATIONAL CBD DAY: Benefits of CBD for you and your pets

Today is a special day to recognize and celebrate the many benefits of CBD – the natural hemp product everyone’s talking about! We will discuss the benefits of CBD for you and your pets.

What is CBD? 

CBD, the abbreviated form of cannabidiol, is a chemical compound derived from the Cannabinoid Sativa plant. It is also known as marijuana and hemp. Unlike delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main ingredient in marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive. It is a naturally occurring substance used in products like oils and edibles to give a feeling of relaxation and calmness.

CBD and THC  are the primary components in the cannabis plant. CBD is the non-psychoactive, non-intoxicating portion of the plant, which means you won't have any feeling of euphoria that’ll leave you feeling "high" or sedated. Hemp contains a higher amount of CBD and a low (0.3%) amount of THC, unlike marijuana which is vice versa. 

Benefits of CBD 

CBD oil - which is  made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut oil or hemp seed oil - and other CBD products are used in the treatment of medical conditions such as:

However, before purchasing any CBD product, check for the purity and dosage of CBD in the said product because a high dosage of CBD can cause liver irritation or damage. It is also necessary for patients to consult their physicians before taking any CBD products, especially if the patient is already taking any prescription drugs to avoid any health complications.
