cbd 101

i’m still confused on cbd. can you give me a simple cbd 101 edu?

Of course! Simplicity is our specialty. Our goal is to make using CBD as simple and straightforward as possible for you! CBD is one of nature’s greatest gifts. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory that’s found in the hemp plant. It helps regulate the system in the body that’s responsible for sleep, anxiety, the immune system, pain and inflammation. Using CBD helps keep this system balanced. And when it’s balanced, everything in the body is running at its optimal level and feels better. #homeostasis

does cbd really work for dogs?

We’re glad you asked! Yes, it does. And now you’re probably thinking, “of course you were going to say that.” And yes, we would. Because we’ve done incredible amounts of research on the benefits of CBD for dogs and have witnessed the benefits of CBD firsthand on our own furry kids. One of wagkind’s co-founders, Teri, has a 14-year-old French Bulldog (life expectancy is 10-12 years) who’s been given CBD on the daily for two years and is still keeping up with two toddlers and loving life. Go Huntie!

But if you don’t want to just take our word for it, here are some recent findings. In fact, pet owners across the internet are telling the FDA that CBD is helping their furry companions. “Dogs don’t lie, she is feeling better and out of pain. I will continue to use CBD oil for her for the rest of her life.” So there you have it.

Nope! CBD is non-psychoactive.

what are the potential dangers of my dog using cbd?

The only dangerous aspect of CBD is irresponsible companies potentially using low-quality oil or products that haven’t been properly produced or tested. If wagkind isn’t for you, that’s okay, but we urge you to do your research on where your products are coming from before purchasing an alternative. As CBD grows in popularity, there are many less-than-awesome products coming onto the market to cut costs. We’d never put a dog’s health over profits which is why all wagkind products are third-party lab tested for quality assurance.

should i give my dog cbd oil or cbd treats?

Great question. Some of this comes down to personal preference and temperament – for you and your dog. But our recommendation is that for dog’s who need a little extra TLC or have a specific ailment like pain, stress, anxiety, athritis or epilepsy, is the Organic CBD Oil Drops. Remember, the way to get maximum efficiency of the oil is to add the drop directly to your dog’s mouth. If that’s out of the question, add the oil to food or a treat but be sure they eat it quickly.

If you’re adding CBD into your dog’s routine as a daily supplement for general wellness or you have a picky pooch, a CBD Cookie may be the perfect place to start.

The good news is that we’ve made sure that both wagkind Organic Hemp CBD Oil and our Organic Hemp CBD Cookies have maximum effectiveness. Unfortunately, some CBD dog treats on the market contain such little traces of active CBD that they’re not going to do much. Here’s a #ProTip – the oil is more CBD milligram bang for your buck.

wellness

what are signs of stress and anxiety in dogs?

Sadly, dogs aren’t immune to mental health issues. In fact, about 30% of dogs show signs of anxiety. One of the key signs is premature graying on the muzzle. Other symptoms including aggression, peeing in the house, drooling, panting, pacing and relentlessness. Learn more about anxiety in dogs here. The sooner you get your furry friend help, the sooner you’ll both have peace at home.

And don’t forget the environment you’ve created for your furry friend (we’re looking at you household cleaning agents). Researchers believe that 5 – 10% of dog cancer cases are genetic in origin but that the vast majority – 90% to 95% – result from environmental factors, such as exposure to toxins, as well as nutritional influences such as obesity and diet.

does my healthy dog need cbd?

Since you’re reading this, we know you’re thinking about taking your dog’s wellness regimen to the next level. High five! So here’s the scoop. Every human’s health and wellness routine is different and the same goes for dogs. But, just like fruits and veggies, exercise, daily vitamins and sunshine are good for pretty much everyone, the same is true for CBD and dogs. CBD has a ton of benefits to serve as a super daily supplement to boost your dog’s overall health and immunity.

what does holistic health mean for dogs?

Holistic may sound a little “woo woo,” but it simply means caring for the ‘whole’ dog, both body and mind, and using the whole wellness toolbox by blending both traditional and natural methods. Believing prevention is always better than a cure, a holistic approach focuses on nontoxic remedies that strengthen a dog’s immune system and get all the body’s systems running at their optimal level.

do dogs have the same systems as humans?

Actually, dogs have a more complex endocannabinoid system than us (the system that works with CBD). Our furry kids have far more receptors so they feel the effects and benefits of CBD more strongly than humans. Beyond that, the importance of maintaining their gut health is very much like us humans.

how does this help immunity and my dog’s gut?

Think of your dog’s immune system and gut like a 24/7 housecleaner team. It finds the gunk around the body and cleans it up before things pile up and get out of control. So keeping this housecleaner team (your dog’s immune system and gut) in tip-top shape is the key to helping the body naturally heal itself. The result? A long and healthy life.

what types of problems are caused by imbalances?

Almost all issues and illness lead back to an imbalanced system – both emotional and physical. Unfortunately, an imbalance in the system usually produces a “symptom” which is treated with a prescription. And when drugs are overused, they actually mask other symptoms and weaken the body’s natural ability to ward off diseases. And in the worst cases, the real health issues aren’t even being addressed.

what’s considered a balanced diet for dogs?

We love vegans, but by nature, dogs are largely carnivores and meat should make up the majority of their diet. However, many dog parents are unaware of their furry kids need for nutrient-rich grains, fruits, veggies and supplements to maximize their system. A 2002 Purdue University study found that at least three servings of fresh veggies a week slowed, and in many cases prevented, the development of certain types of cancer in dogs.

is cbd a natural alternative to prescription drugs for my dog?

For certain prescriptions – absolutely. Unfortunately, the corporatization of vet care is big business and we’re seeing an uptick in over-prescribing animals which we can’t help but think is a sign of profit over pet health. Prescription drugs weaken our dog’s natural immune system, mask symptoms and weaken their body’s natural ability to fight disease. And in the worst cases, the real health issues aren’t even being addressed. CBD is an all-natural way to help get to the root of your dog’s issues.

science

is there any science to back this up?

Yes! Studies have found CBD to be helpful for animals. And with the legalization of hemp in 2018, we’re seeing a bunch of new studies happening. But to make you feel more comfortable, here are some research excerpts: “CBD hemp oil has been researched by top veterinarians for cardiovascular, pain management, orthopedic, and mental health in animals,” says Ian Quinn, CEO of Phyto Animal Health. One study found that CBD reduced psychotic behavior when used on animals, while another study found it to have a noticeable impact on pain reduction.” Read more for yourself here.

how does cbd help a dog’s immune system? 

Boosting your dog’s immune system is one of the key benefits of CBD! When a dog has a strong immune system, they’re more likely able to heal themselves naturally.

what’s the importance of a dog’s digestive system?

Your dog’s digestive tract is the largest immune organ in his or her body, and believe it or not, your dog has even more bacteria in their intestinal tract than you do. CBD helps dogs keep their guts happy and healthy.

what’s the importance of third-party lab testing and quality control?

Let’s not kid ourselves. Right now, CBD is the most popular kid on the wellness block. And while we love that people on getting on the goodness train, this, unfortunately means that there are a lot of shady products hitting the shelves. And it’s not just the ingredients to be wary of. There are some icky farming and manufacturing processes that result in harmful chemicals making their way into the final products. And lastly, you need to be sure you know the concentration of your products for proper dosing. A recent study tested 84 CBD products from 31 companies and 70% of them contained either more or less CBD than indicated on the packaging! Buy smart and stay safe.

Is there really no fillers or artificial junk in your products?

Our philosophy is the less fluff the better. We like to focus on the good stuff like real, all-organic ingredients, body-boosting superfoods and wholesome mother nature goodness. And we always avoid the inactive and hard-to-pronounce fillers and binders like lecithin, sorbitol, gum Arabic and cellulose that may boost the appearance, but don’t offer any benefit to our furry kids. We’d rather use an all-natural binder like our organic peanut and have a few cookie crumbs, than filling our cookies with any of the fake stuff. We’re sure you’d agree.
