Colorado grown and extracted. Whole Hemp Oil may be recognized as new to the Modern Western World, but the hemp plant has been around for health, agriculture and advancement of societies for centuries. Science has shown us that there is much more going on with this CBD component than originally thought. And to think that CBD is just one component in the massive list of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids all working their magic, is humbling and exciting. Humans and other mammals have specific cannabinoid receptors that are primarily in the brain and central nervous system, and in peripheral organs, especially immune cells. We refer to these receptors as the endocannabinoid system. This system in naturally occurring and producing cannabinoids by itself. But other hormones and external substances can throw this system off track. That is why we supplement these products to help the body reach it's homeostasis. The exact effects that these receptors promote when stimulated with CBD oil differentiate with every dog and their circumstance. We look at our products at BarknBig in a whole form, meaning that our bodies digest and absorb nutrients with such complexity, we need to stay as natural as possible. This is why we use the whole hemp plant to extract the CBD oil and all the other cannabinoids, allowing our Hemp Oil to work with the pet’s body in harmony.
There are trace amounts of THC in the Oil because of the synergistic effect it plays with the CBD. Trace amounts means under .3% of the volume of the Oil. Under Federal law, it is ok and safe to sell a CBD oil with THC as long it is under that threshold.
