Hemp leaf CBD cannabidiol dropper bottle and leaves

What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol.  CBD is a powerful plant extract that has been used for wellness for thousands of years.  It is one of many cannabinoids in hemp that has a variety of effects on our body’s endocannabinoid system.  Our bodies, as well as animals, actually produce endocannabinoids naturally.

 

 

What does the endocannabinoid system do?

The endocannabinoid system supports sleep, skin, mood regulation, appetite and digestion, memory, muscles and joints, and other systems that help support homeostasis and balance within the body in both humans and animals.

 

 

Where is your CBD oil sourced from?

We believe in supporting the agriculture, farmers and workers right here in the U.S.A.  100% of our CBD oil is grown using organic farming practices under strict guidelines from our partner hemp farms in Colorado.  

 

 

Do you 3rd party lab test?

Every single batch of our CBD products are tested through third-party labs for your safety and reassurance.  We’re big on transparency, so third-party lab tests are posted for every product we offer. 

If you’ve already placed an order, check out the “Trace your CBD” page to view the lab reports.  Just match the batch number on the product to the corresponding lab report.

 

What is the difference between hemp-derived CBD and marijuana?

Although they share some similar genetics from the cannabis family, CBD from hemp and marijuana are two entirely different plants.  Hemp has thin leaves, grows tall and is bred to be high in CBD and low in THC.  You may have already purchased hemp products in the form of hemp seeds, vegan protein powder, hemp milk, clothing, jewelry, etc.    Our CBD products are also sourced from hemp.

Marijuana, on the other hand, has wider leaves, grows lower to the ground and contains higher amounts of THC, the psychoactive component that produces the feeling of getting high.  If a high feeling is what you’re looking for, you won’t find it here.

 

 

Will this get me or my pet high?

No. All of our products are THC-Free.  Unlike marijuana and THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and extremely unlikely to cause a high.  

 

 

Do any of your products contain THC??

Every part of our process, from our superior hemp farming to our third-party testing, is done to ensure a safe product.  All of our products are derived from hemp and test 0% for THC.  So any possibility of a high is completely removed.

 

 

Is  CBD good for treating anxiety?  Or inflammation, pain, etc?

While we strongly believe in the benefits of our broad spectrum and nano water soluble formulas, no CBD companies are able to make treatment claims for any specific disease or illness. 

We recommend checking out our CBD 101 page to learn more about how CBD works.  If you decide it might be a good fit, please tell us your story by posting a product review and tagging us on social media.  It might just help another pet parent on their journey.

Always seek the advice of your physician, veterinarian, or other qualified health professional with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

 

 

How can I purchase CBD products for me and members of my fur-family?

All of our H+P Natural Wellness products (for humans) and Hand and Paw (for pets) are available to purchase online through www.handandpaw.co or through our partners.  That allows us to source the most effective, premium quality CBD for you and your best friend.  

We’re expanding to stores all across the U.S.!  If you love our products and would like your local pet store or health store to stock our products, please tell them where to find us online and give us a head’s up too.  If it’s a good fit, we might just send you a surprise just for throwing us a bone.

What’s the difference between full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and isolate CBD?

CBD can be full-spectrum, broad-spectrum or isolate (pure) in nature.

 

For most concerned pet parents, products containing THC are a deal-breaker because ALL  FULL -SPECTRUM CBD PRODUCTS CONTAIN SMALL AMOUNTS OF THC.  THC can be toxic to dogs and horses in certain quantities, which is why we don’t believe in giving full-spectrum CBD products to ANY animals, especially our fur-family.  Even full spectrum products labeled 0% THC may contain small but significant amounts of THC, since most lab tests will deem it ND or “non-detectable” if under .03%.  The  .03% was designed  specifically for humans, and not enough research has been done to determine a safe amount, if any, exists for pets.  If it really has 0 traces of THC, it’s likely mislabeled and is not a true “full-spectrum” product. 

 

When it comes to the safety of our furry sidekicks, we spend extra to have the THC extracted.  We’re pet parents too, so we get it.

 

Broad spectrum formulas contains the entire spectrum of natural cannabinoids and terpenes, so you get everything you would in a full spectrum cbd product, even an entourage effect, just without the THC.

 

Our nano formula is a water soluble form of Pure CBD, with 80-90% greater absorption due to the smaller “nano” particle size.  Nano works faster, is more effective and tastes better when compared to similar products – so you and your best friend can relax as  more money stays in your wallet over the long-run… though when that happens to us, it usually results in buying more dog toys.

 

 

What type of CBD does H+P Natural Wellness and Hand and Paw use?

Everything Hand and Paw creates is THC-free.  H+P Natural Wellness Pet Parent formulas are all broad spectrum, and our H+P and Hand and Paw softgels are nano-broad spectrum formulas. These contain the entire spectrum of natural cannabinoids and terpenes that you would find in a full spectrum cbd product, but without the THC.

Hand and Paw’s tinctures and pet chews are made using our nano-emulsified formula, which is a pure form of CBD with a greater absorption rate due to smaller hemp extract droplets, allowing them to be more easily absorbed into the body.  Nano not only works faster, is more effective, and tastes better when compared to other CBD products, but is also more economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of our nano-emulsified CBD than you would from regular CBD from competitors (80-90% absorption rate compared to 35%). 

 

 

Do I need a prescription?

Nope.  You can put your insurance card away.  All of our hemp-derived CBD are THC-FREE and no prescription is necessary. 

If you have insurance for your dog or cat, however, you may wish to see if CBD is covered under your policy as a natural alternative.  Then coordinate with your provider and your vet, and certainly let us know if there is anything on our end that is needed.

Is the pet formula just for dogs and cats, or can I also give it to my other pets?

While the salmon based formulas are designed for dogs and cats, so long as the pet is able to consume each of the ingredients and has no allergies to any of the ingredients, it can also be given to other animals, large or small.  If you’re unsure, please consult with your veterinarian.

Since CBD is dose-based, the serving size would just change based on species,  weight, and the specific needs  of the animal.  The product description and labeling will give you a baseline of where to start based on weight.  The adjust up or down according to the animal’s condition and needs. 

 

 

What is the shelf life of CBD?

Since our CBD oil is naturally derived from the hemp plant and grown using organic farming practices, most CBD products have a shelf life of 12-24 months, depending on the product. Most are approximately 18 months.  CBD is best used on a regular basis, so most customers never even get close to that time-frame.  To preserve freshness, keep CBD products in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight and humidity.  Though it can be stored in the refrigerator, it is not necessary. 

 

 

Will I pass a drug test if taking CBD?

Most drug tests measure THC, and our products don’t contain any THC. 

That being said, drug tests haven’t yet been changed to account for entire differences between the components in marijuana vs. hemp, as well as the different consumption, absorption and metabolization rates of each individual.  So if you might be subject to a drug test, we recommend not using any type of CBD products until you are in the clear, just in case.  

 

 

How can I purchase CBD products for me or my best friend?

All of our products are available to purchase online through www.handandpaw.co or through our partners.  That allows us to source the most effective, premium quality CBD for you and your best friend. 

If you love our products and would like your local pet store or health store to stock our products, please tell them where to find us online.  We’d also be happy to reach out.

 

Can I buy this as a gift for a friend or have it shipped to my local shelter?

It’s very common for customers to try our CBD,  love it, and then order some for a friend as a birthday, holiday or “just because” gift (especially the Sample Pet Packs, CBD Relief Salve and CBD Gummy Bears!)  Good words spread quickly, and it’s always nice to know that you might be able to help someone else in your life feel better too.  It’s always nice to feel loved.

Want the packing slip left out?  Just tell us it’s a gift in the “Order notes” section of the order page, and we’ll be sure to wrap up each product in tissue paper for no additional charge.  Actually, we’ll do that for you too, because every order is special to us 🙂
