Derek Thomas, VP of Business Development at Veritas Farms, explains how CBD helps to improve our pets’ anxiety and boost overall health.Veritas Farms is made with organic and natural ingredients – so when you use one of our products, you can be sure it’s loaded with all the good stuff from the hemp plant.
The hemp plant has something for everyone. Whether it’s finding a sense of calm from everyday stress, helping balance your body, improving your sleep quality, boosting your workout recovery or one of its many other uses, you may be wondering what else this plant has to offer and who else can benefit from it.
The benefits of full spectrum hemp oil aren’t only for humans – most animals also have endocannabinoid systems including all mammals, birds, reptiles and fish! In fact, the endocannabinoid system in felines, canines and equines is robust enough to offer the same benefits that many humans experience from using full spectrum hemp oil.
As the Fourth of July approaches, pet owners know all-too-well what a stressful week the celebration can bring. The anxiety caused from environmental stressors, like fireworks, can be incredibly stressful for dogs. Full spectrum hemp oil is a great option for helping them find a sense of calm amidst the chaos. Similar neurotic behaviors, like displays of separation anxiety or agitation are also often placated by the use of full spectrum hemp oil.
Veritas Farms’ pet-centric collection, Veritas Pets, features chews formulated for a variety of conditions that pets face.
For older, mobility-challenged pets, the Joint Care Chew is packed with 10 milligrams of our full spectrum hemp oil and contains glucosamine and chondroitin for added efficacy.
Another popular product, the Skin and Allergy Chew, contains EPA and DHA alongside the full spectrum hemp oil to support your dog’s skin heath and addresses seasonal allergies.
And for those dogs that do experience stress during thunderstorms or fireworks, Veritas Pet’s Calming Chew has 10 milligrams of full spectrum hemp oil along with chamomile and valerian root.
Pets can benefit from the topical application of CBD as well. Veritas Pets currently offers a hot spot oil, ear cleansing system and paw rub all designed to ease pain and swelling while helping clean and soothe your pets affected areas.
However, we need to give the same caution and due diligence to the hemp products we give to our pets that we do to ourselves. Here are a few items to be on your checklist before purchasing a CBD product for your pet:
- Find a vertically integrated farm or a brand with a transparent supply chain
- Check for a full-panel Certificate of Analysis (COA) that:
- a. Is provided by an ISO 9000 (or higher) certified laboratory
- b. Correlates to the lot number of the product your purchasing
- c. Tests and provides results for:
iii. Heavy metals
vi. Residual solvents
