Cannactiva's CBD oil for animals is made with full spectrum CBD extract (also known as CBD Full Spectrum) from our organic hemp plantations. It is a CBD-rich product specially formulated for pets, containing all the cannabinoids and phytochemicals (terpenes, flavonoidsâ€¦) of the full-spectrum extract. These components, naturally present in Cannabis, balance the effect of CBD, making it have a synergistic or more potent effect on the animal's organism. For the preparation of the CBD preparation for animals, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil is used as carrier oil. Natural flavorings are also used to enhance the aroma of CBD oil and make it more palatable for use in pets.
Interestingly, CBD oil is not psychoactive. Scientific studies on CBD in animals show that CBD has a very important advantage over THC in the treatment of veterinary diseases due to its low toxicity and tolerability, whose adverse effects would only occur at very high doses. CBD is well tolerated and safe for use in pets. The opposite of THC or marijuana preparations, which have a high toxicity and a high risk of adverse effects on our pets.
The CBD for pets used in CBD oils for animals is extracted from hemp plants, a type of Cannabis sativa plant that does not contain THC (lower content 0.2%). Marijuana, on the other hand, is a type of Cannabis plant with a completely different phytocannabinoid profile, very rich in THC (in concentrations that can reach up to 15-20%) and very low in CBD. THC is toxic to animals and causes adverse effects, so it is very toxic to give marijuana to pets, in any of its preparations. Undoubtedly, CBD is presented as the best alternative to take advantage of the benefits of cannabis in animals in a safe way.
