Can CBD Help With Dog Ear Inflammation & Infections?

Disclaimer: This information is not intended to provide or substitute for any medical advice. If you believe your dog has a health condition that CBD could help with, please consult your veterinarian before administering any CBD product to your dog or before replacing any vet-prescribed medication for CBD.

When your dog is suffering from an ear infection or inflammation, it’s no fun for anyone. Both conditions are not only very uncomfortable, but can also lead to permanent hearing damage if left untreated. Thankfully, studies show CBD can help to reduce painful inflammation and that CBD has antibacterial and antifungal benefits.

So, how exactly can CBD help a dog with an ear infection or inflammation? First, let’s review the difference between the two:

The Difference Between Ear Inflammation and an Ear Infection

Inflammation is caused by an immune system response to a perceived invader, usually a bacteria or fungus. While a little inflammation is good if it’s trying to fight an infection, chronic inflammation is never good. It often means that the body is overacting. Inflammation can happen anywhere in the body and can be very painful and degenerative, eating away at healthy cells. The tiny hairlike cells in the inner ear that make hearing possible aren’t like other cells; in fact, when a dog’s ear inflammation is left untreated, these cells could die and never grow back, which may lead to deafness.

While an ear infection is different, an infection and inflammation often appear together and the symptoms may be similar.

Here are some physical signs that your dog has an ear infection and/or inflammation:

  • Sweet-smelling odor in the ears.
  • Brown or red discharge.
  • Swelling.
  • Crust or scabs.

Your dog may be:

  • Obsessively rubbing its head on furniture or the floor.
  • Scratching around its ear.
  • Shaking or tilting its head.

Why Traditional Anti-inflammatory Treatments Are Lacking

Veterinarians commonly treat dog inflammation of any kind with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs). While human NSAIDs include Aleve and Advil, examples of NSAIDs for dogs include:

  • Deramaxx
  • Rimadyl
  • Metacam
  • Previcox

In both humans and animals, short-term use of NSAIDs impacts the ability of the blood to clot. So, if your pup were in an accident or fight, it could bleed out easily if it was on an NSAID. Additionally, NSAIDs can have other adverse effects from long-term or high-dose use, such as:

  • Stomach damage.
  • Kidney damage.
  • Hearing loss.
  • Skin rashes.

How CBD Can Help to Manage Dog Ear Inflammation

CBD has demonstrated both safety and effectiveness in treating inflammation in dogs, including osteoarthritis inflammation, which is very damaging to joints. To date, there are no studies specifically addressing CBD for ear inflammation, but there is anecdotal evidence, and the mechanisms that cause inflammation are the same throughout the body in both dogs and humans.

Studies also show how CBD reduces inflammation. CBD activates the Cannabinoid type-2 (CB2) receptor in the body, which reduces the body’s production of “monocyte chemotactic protein-2 (MCP-2) chemokine in polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid [poly-(I:C)]-stimulated human keratinocyte (HaCaT) cells.” Not sure how to pronounce that last part? Don’t worry—the scientists conducting the study do, and they found that this is a clear “demonstration of the anti-inflammatory properties” of CBD.

But can CBD actually help with an ear infection?

How CBD Can Help to Combat a Dog Ear Infection

CBD is among five natural substances found in the cannabis plant with antibacterial properties. Researchers are currently investigating whether CBD can be used to treat antibiotic-resistant bacteria like MRSA, and initial results are promising.

Another study found that CBD is “bactericidal” toward strep and staph bacteria, two bacteria commonly found in and on humans and dogs. Studies also show that CBD has antifungal properties, including the ability to fight yeast (sometimes referred to as “thrush”) as well as other fungal infections.

How to Use CBD to Naturally Manage the Symptoms of Ear Infections & Inflammation

Before starting your dog on any CBD regimen, it’s important to first consult a veterinarian—preferably a CBD-friendly vet. At the moment, most vets aren’t technically allowed to recommend CBD. But finding a holistic vet knowledgeable about CBD for pets will be a huge help in determining the dosage and precise details for giving CBD to your pet.

Generally, CBD can be applied topically to an external infection or area of inflammation. But you may choose not to put CBD in your dog’s ear. It’s not that it’s harmful—there just aren’t enough studies to show that it’s not harmful. So, it’s your call. That said, CBD doesn’t have to be applied topically to have anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial benefits. Simply administer a drop or two into your dog’s mouth, preferably under the tongue so that some absorbs through the soft skin there.

You can also mix a small amount of CBD oil with a small amount of coconut oil, as both have antibacterial properties when consumed orally. But be careful: Large amounts of coconut oil can give a dog diarrhea. For a medium-sized dog (around 25 pounds), start with one drop (a dropper holds 10 drops). Make sure not to touch the dropper to your fingers or your dog’s tongue to avoid contamination. If symptoms persist, increase to two drops. Within four to seven days, your dog should show improvement. But continue twice daily for two weeks to be sure your dog is back to normal.

And while the aforementioned studies are promising, please return to your vet if symptoms do not improve.

Why Quality Counts When Choosing a CBD Product for Your Dog

We can’t stress this enough: Quality matters when choosing a CBD oil—for you or your dog. A 30 ml CBD tincture could only contain 150mg of CBD diluted in a lot of carrier oil. A higher-quality CBD oil may have as much as 250 mg in a 30 ml bottle. If you choose a lower potency, realize that you will need to use much more, which often negates the money you saved by buying an inferior product. Your best bet is to buy from a company that conducts third-party testing to verify the contents of their products to ensure that you're getting what you paid for.

Our advice: Be cautious, be conscious and choose Curaleaf Hemp. Our pet CBD products are formulated especially for pets using pure hemp-derived CBD and 0% THC. We also use only 100% natural ingredients, and test every product via a reliable third-party to confirm its purity.

What Is A CBD Tincture?

Using a tincture is one of the most popular ways to consume CBD. Yet many people are still unsure about what a CBD tincture is, how it differs from other types of CBD products, and how to use it.

But First, What Is CBD?

In case you’re wondering, CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of more than 100 naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant. It’s non-psychoactive, unlike THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the compound in cannabis that produces a euphoric high.

CBD is gentle, safe, and can be used to address the symptoms of a variety of health conditions, such as anxiety, chronic pain and more. It’s extracted from either marijuana or hemp, a non-intoxicating fiber of the cannabis plant that’s also often used for paper and other products because of its durability. When extracted from marijuana, CBD may contain small amounts of the psychoactive compound THC, as marijuana contains anywhere from 12–30% of THC, depending on the strain. However, CBD derived from hemp contains less than 0.3% THC, which can be removed completely during a CO2 extraction process. This means hemp-derived CBD is a pure and safe source of cannabidiol, free of THC.

After extraction, CBD concentrate is formulated into different products to suit a variety of needs. Typically, CBD products include: vape pens and vape oil; topical lotions and patches; edibles like brownies, cookies and candy; and tinctures.

Now, What Is a CBD Tincture?

A CBD tincture is a liquid that can be alcohol- or oil-based and contains a high amount of CBD concentrate. Usually it comes in a glass bottle with a dropper, and is simple to use. When derived from pure hemp, a CBD tincture allows you to effectively experience the benefits of CBD minus the intoxicating high.

Tinctures may also combine natural ingredients like essential oils and essences from flowers and plants to enhance the efficacy of the cannabidiol. Here at Curaleaf Hemp, we offer a variety of pure CBD tinctures, which means that we don’t put in any additional cannabinoids, terpenes or flavonoids. Our development team has decades of experience, and building on that experience, our experts have developed exceptionally clean extraction techniques to produce pure CBD oil for our tinctures.

How to Take a CBD Tincture

Many people choose to consume CBD tinctures by placing them under their tongue for 10 or more seconds before swallowing. This allows the CBD to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream through the veins underneath the tongue. When consumed in this way, CBD’s effects are usually felt within several minutes to a half hour. CBD tinctures can also be added to foods and beverages, although they may change the flavor of the food or drink.

What Can CBD Tinctures Be Used For?

  • Relaxation and anxiety reduction.
  • To aid with digestion and help relieve upset stomach.
  • Muscle and joint pain relief, particularly if associated with arthritis.
  • To revive and energize the mind and body.
  • To uplift the mind, balance emotions and promote a stronger immune system.

Where to Find CBD Tinctures

Given the recent legalization of hemp-derived CBD, you can find tinctures just about anywhere. But the problem is that the CBD industry is currently unregulated, which means there are an overwhelming amount of questionable products on the market that aren’t actually safe. This is why, when choosing a CBD tincture, quality is of the utmost importance. Cheaply made CBD tinctures—or tinctures from brands that aren’t reputable in the hemp, CBD, and cannabis industry—could contain fillers, additives, pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

Ideally, you’ll want to choose an organic CBD tincture made from hemp that’s grown without the use of harmful pesticides and without any artificial colors or flavors. Again, CBD oil and other CBD products aren’t currently regulated, so make sure you do your research to find CBD products from a reputable source. Also, look to confirm that the products you buy are tested by a third party to verify their safety and efficacy.

We’re passionate about formulating CBD products to help you live life well. Our CBD tinctures are made with a blend of powerful essential oils like jasmine and lavender to enhance the quality and potency of each blend. Explore our collection.

7 Tips For Helping A Dog With Thunderstorm Anxiety

When a dog has thunderstorm anxiety, it’s no fun for anyone. The sense of panic, loud barking and anxious (sometimes destructive) behavior can take a serious toll on both dogs and their owners.

In the moment, it might seem like a dog is overreacting. Yet their phobia of thunderstorms doesn’t seem so far fetched when you consider the fact that a dog’s hearing is around four times stronger than a human’s. Still, veterinarians suspect that there may be more to it than that. Sure, thunderstorms are loud. But they also cause flashes of light, strange shadows coming in through the windows, high-pitched howling winds and other scary sounds. This leads vets to believe that dogs are triggered by some combination of wind, thunder, lightning, barometric pressure changes, static electricity, and low-frequency rumbles before a storm that humans can’t always hear.

Additionally, some dogs are just more nervous than others. Whatever the case, it’s important not to disregard your dog’s feelings and behaviors if it seems to be heavily triggered by storms compared to other dogs. As you know, dogs wear their emotions on their sleeves; when they’re anxious, it’s not a hoax just to get your attention. So be mindful of your dog during a storm if it looks to be having a hard time.

And be proactive. Follow these steps to help your dog with thunderstorm anxiety:

1. Be At Home When You Can

If you know it’s going to be a particularly stormy night outside, consider ordering dinner in instead of going out. Not only will you stay dry, but your dog will feel much safer with you around.

2. Give Your Dog a Massage

All mammals have an innate need to be touched. Studies show that touch has enormous emotional and physical health benefits. It can improve blood flow and immune health. The power of touch can also ease fear and release hormones that promote happiness. And while your dog will certainly be happy with a rub on the belly, a gentle massage on the feet and legs is even better. But don’t forget the neck, chin, shoulders and back. Most dogs probably won’t like their tail massaged, so respect your dog’s personal space if it seems uncomfortable. If your dog snaps or growls at you, try another strategy on this list.

3. Offer Distractions

If you can’t be home during a storm, leaving the TV or radio on can help to minimize the volume of the thunder. Plus, if you normally have these on when you’re home, it may give your pet the sense that you’re there.

4. Create a Safe Space

Dogs feeling anxious often find comfort in a confined space, like a crate or under the bed. If you don’t already have a safe space like this, create one. Ideally, this place should be away from windows or doors. You should also spend a little time with your dog in this space so it’s reminiscent of you when you’re not home.

5. Desensitize Your Dog

This one may seem a little cruel, so use this strategy with caution. Get an audio recording of a storm. Sit with your dog as you play the audio, and make sure to give your pet lots of loving attention during this process so as not to induce panic. If your dog seems overly alarmed, stop and try a different suggestion on this list. The idea is to desensitize your dog to the sound of a thunderstorm but without inflicting any trauma.

6. Invest in a Dog Vest

In mental-health institutions, professionals often provide weighted blankets to patients to help them sleep because the weight of the blanket feels like a hug, producing a sense of calm. A dog vest mimics this on a much smaller scale. The pressure of the vest is centered around the middle, simulating a hug, and may help your dog feel safer when you’re not around to help with their anxiety during a thunderstorm.

7. Try CBD Oil for Your Dog’s Thunderstorm Anxiety

What Is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of more than 100 naturally occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis. It's non-addictive and non-psychoactive, so it doesn’t cause an intoxicating high like THC, another compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s safe for dogs—but only when derived from pure hemp, a non-intoxicating fiber of the cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC. Why? THC is toxic to dogs. So selecting CBD made from pure hemp rather than cannabis-derived CBD eliminates the possibility of accidentally giving your dog a product that could contain THC.

How Does CBD Work?

CBD interacts with your dog’s endocannabinoid system, a series of receptors that regulate pain, mood, memory, appetite, stress and the immune system. It helps these receptors keep hormones in balance, including adrenaline, the hormone that promotes the fear response. Regulating adrenaline can help to reduce feelings of fear and anxiety, thereby restoring contentment and emotional balance.

Do Studies Support the Use of CBD for Dogs?

A recent scientific review of research on the anti-anxiety benefits of CBD for both lab animals and humans found that studies completed over the past 10 years “clearly suggest an anxiolytic-like effect of CBD in both animal models and healthy volunteers.” “Anxiolytic” means “inhibits anxiety and/or panic attacks.” In other words, it has the potential to effectively reduce your dog’s thunderstorm anxiety.

But is CBD really safe for dogs? In another study, researchers wanted to examine CBD as a potential painkiller for dogs with osteoarthritis. They separated the dogs into three groups: a placebo group, a low-dose CBD group, and a high-dose CBD group. They found that in both CBD groups there were no negative side effects—even when given four times the recommended dose. They also found that both CBD groups had less pain and were more active than the placebo group. So far, nearly 60 studies confirm that CBD is safe for dogs.

Furthermore, researchers also reviewed hundreds of studies published on major research platforms like PubMed and found that the studies “conclusively demonstrate CBD’s efficacy in reducing anxiety behaviors” in both animals and humans without negative side effects.

That said, at the moment, there are no substantial studies specifically about CBD’s potential to help with thunderstorm anxiety in dogs. But the aforementioned studies and other existing research indicates a great deal of promise. And, given that CBD has many benefits for humans, it’s suspected that it can also positively impact dogs.

Where to Find CBD for Your Dog’s Thunderstorm Anxiety

The startling truth about the CBD industry is that, currently, it’s completely unregulated. Unfortunately, this means there are an overwhelming amount of CBD products marketed to pet owners that aren’t actually safe for your dog. Your best defense is to do your homework. Look for CBD pet products made with all-natural ingredients, zero THC and absolutely no artificial colors or flavors. It’s also extremely important to confirm the CBD products you buy for your pets (and yourself) have been tested by a third party to verify their purity. Having a product that’s third-party tested—with results you can see for yourself—is a sign you’ve found a credible source of CBD.

Here at Curalead Hemp, we carefully formulate pure hemp-derived CBD pet products made with only the best all-natural ingredients and 0% THC. Every product is thoroughly tested by a trusted third party to ensure quality and safety.

How To Find Pure & Affordable CBD Oil Wholesale

In 2018, CBD became fully legal on the federal level, and thanks to that sudden change, sales of CBD products have skyrocketed. It’s estimated that by the year 2020, sales of CBD will hit the $1.15 billion mark. So as a retailer, there’s no time like the present to start building a name for yourself in the CBD industry.

But be warned: You may encounter a few stumbling blocks along the way—especially when it comes to sourcing quality and cost-conscious CBD from a reputable source. Affordable CBD products are not easy to find. A lot of distributors mark their prices up so high that it can be nearly impossible to buy bulk amounts of a product and make a logical profit as a retailer. Plus, given that the CBD market is currently unregulated, it can be even more difficult to source CBD products that are pure and safe.

The good news: We can help. Here at Curaleaf Hemp, we work hard to formulate CBD products that consumers can rely on. We value making impactful partnerships with strong retail brands who care about their customers as much as we do. And as a reliable name in the CBD industry, we offer wholesale pricing and pure CBD products you can trust. This is why we work with major retailers like CVS to expand their assortment of CBD products and solidify their reputation as a retailer in the CBD space.

Curious about what makes Curaleaf Hemp a step above the rest?

1. We Offer an Assortment of Budget-Friendly CBD Products

Building a steady assortment of CBD products will help you keep your customers coming back for more. Generally, once consumers have developed a sense of trust in a certain brand, they are more likely to stick with that same brand when looking to try other products.

At Curaleaf Hemp, we offer an extensive list of CBD products, including:

2. Our CBD Is Always 100% Free of THC

We source our CBD from Colorado- and Kentucky-grown industrial-grade hemp, which allows us to ensure that our products have 0% THC. One of the biggest misconceptions among consumers about CBD is that it causes an intoxicating high because it comes from the cannabis plant. This is false. Cannabis has many active compounds—over 100 to be exact. CBD is one of those compounds; another one is THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical compound found in cannabis that is psychoactive. However, CBD does not cause a euphoric high. And when derived from hemp, a non-intoxicating fiber of the cannabis plant, it contains less than 0.3% THC—which we remove completely during the extraction process.

Then, once every Curaleaf Hemp product is complete, it’s batch-tested by an independent third party to ensure that it’s absolutely free of THC.

3. Our CBD Oils Are Infused with Essential Oils

When pure hemp-derived CBD comes together with essential oils from plants, flowers and herbs, it creates a more customized experience. Every essential oil and natural essence possesses its own set of benefits that can enhance the efficacy of the CBD. That’s why we formulate our CBD products using a diverse profile of natural essences. In other words, all of our CBD oil blends are designed with a certain purpose or moodstate in mind.

For example, our Digest CBD vape pen is infused with ginger, clove and cinnamon to help with digestive health. While our Relieve tincture is made to promote calmness and soothe muscles and joints. The anti-inflammatory properties of lavender blended with sweet orange make this tincture a popular go-to for people living with chronic pain.

We also have CBD tinctures, topicals, vape pens and more to match the following moodstates:

Relax

Revive

Uplift

4. We Use Only All-Natural Ingredients

    Nothing artificial goes into our products. Ever. We always use natural ingredients. So you’ll never find anything artificial listed on our ingredient labels, such as artificial sweeteners, colors or flavoring agents.

    5. We Extract Our CBD Using the CO2 Extraction Method

    As a retailer, it’s important to educate yourself about the different ways CBD can be extracted. Extraction methods can affect the overall quality of the CBD product. Here at Curaleaf Hemp, we rely on a solventless CO2 extraction method, which is a highly praised process that has been trusted in the botanical industry for many years.

    CO2 extraction allows us to extract CBD in its isolated form and keep it pure. In turn, this means you won’t find any trace solvents or contaminants in our CBD products.

    Can I Use CBD Oil For Dog Seizures?

    Disclaimer: This information is not intended to provide or substitute for any medical advice. If you believe your dog has a health condition that CBD could help with, please consult your veterinarian before administering any CBD product to your dog or before replacing any vet-prescribed medication for CBD.

    Could your dog forget who you are? If they have seizures, it’s possible. It’s estimated that 1–5% of dogs suffer with seizures during their lifetime. Typically, seizures can last for up to two minutes and may cause a loss of consciousness, involuntary repetitive movements or out-of-character aggressive behavior.

    If left untreated, over time, seizures can cause brain damage that can actually be seen on an MRI. Much of this damage is in the hippocampus, which is the part of the brain that’s primarily responsible for processing memories.

    What Causes Seizures in Dogs?

    Seizures have many known causes, such as:

    • Birth-brain abnormality (In these cases, seizures usually start within year one.)
    • Brain tumor
    • Head trauma
    • Brain inflammation

    Idiopathic epilepsy is very common in dogs. In this case, a vet is unable to tell exactly what’s causing the seizures. All they can do is try to reduce the number of seizures to maintain your dog’s quality of life. A vet may prescribe phenobarbital. While this drug is very effective, it also has many side effects like fatigue, confusion and liver damage if a dog is on it long-term.

    Thankfully, CBD has been clinically proven and is approved by the FDA to treat seizures in humans.

    How Can CBD Help with Dog Seizures?

    CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of more than 100 active compounds found in the cannabis plant. It’s completely non-psychoactive, and has a multitude of uses. It can be extracted from either hemp, a non-intoxicating fiber of the cannabis plant, or marijuana, which contains psychoactive THC. When CBD is extracted from hemp, it has less than 0.3% THC, making it a pure and effective option for anyone who wants to experience the benefits of cannabis without the high. But if extracted from marijuana, there’s the likelihood a CBD product could contain traces of THC, since marijuana has anywhere from 5–20% of THC, depending on the strain.

    For pet owners, it’s never a good idea to give your animal a CBD product with any amount of THC in it, since THC is toxic to dogs and could get them high.

    However, pure hemp-derived CBD is safe for dogs and can help with anxiety. But one of CBD’s most powerful benefits is that it can reduce inflammation, which could, in turn, help prevent seizures. The anti-anxiety effects of CBD may also help to reduce dog seizures, as chronic anxiety takes a toll on the mind and body. In addition, studies have shown that CBD has an anti-tumor effect, meaning it may help to slow or even shrink a brain tumor that’s causing seizures. But is there proof?

    Here’s what the research has to say:

    The Proof that CBD Can Help with Dog Seizures

    First, we should note that a CBD drug was approved by the FDA for the treatment of human seizures in 2018. So CBD isn’t just another herbal supplement built up on junk science or false claims.

    A study from the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics showed that CBD caused “a dramatic drop of mitochondrial oxidative metabolism...and viability in glioma cells.” In other words, it shrunk a tumor. The study goes on to state that the effects were evident within 24 hours. And, scientists found that when they tried to cause a tumor in lab mice, CBD prevented the tumor from growing in the first place.

    Another study, published on PubMed, also recaps several relevant studies that demonstrated CBD’s ability to reduce inflammation in the:

    • Colon
    • Liver
    • Joints
    • Other parts of the body

    Plus, a double-blind, randomized, controlled study of 171 human patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a form of epilepsy, saw a 44% reduction in seizures compared to 22% on placebo.

    Furthermore, studies show no side effects in humans, mice or dogs—indicating that CBD is safe for humans and pets. In fact, one dog study proved that CBD can reduce arthritis inflammation in dogs with no side effects. While research specifically on dogs has been lacking thus far, more studies on both dogs and cats are currently underway. So we can expect to see even more results soon.

    Can You Get CBD from Your Vet?

    The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has instructed vets not to recommend CBD for dog seizures at this time despite the amount of scientific proof that exists. However, it’s only out of extreme caution, which is normal for any credible and careful medical organization. They simply want to keep patients safe.

    But you can still find CBD for your dog by shopping for a pet CBD product.

    How to Choose the Best CBD Oil for Dog Seizures

    1. Check for Third-Party Testing and All-Natural Ingredients

    The AVMA is hesitant for a reason. Currently, the CBD industry is unregulated. That’s why it’s paramount to choose a company that can verify the purity and safety of their pet CBD products. Check the ingredients to make sure there are no harmful flavors or colorings. The best CBD oil for dogs will have all-natural ingredients and as few additives as possible.

    2. Pay Attention to the Potency

    Look for a potent product, and never let the low price of a product fool you. The same 30 ml bottle might contain only 150 mg of actual CBD with a lot of fillers—or it could contain a lot more. With a quality CBD product, you’d need to administer one single drop twice a day depending on your pet’s body weight. But with a lower concentration, you could need up to five or more drops twice a day. So know that quality matters.

    3. Find Out How the CBD is Extracted

    Do some research to learn how the company extracts the CBD they use in their products. To be on the safe side, choose a brand that uses the CO2 extraction process. It’s a cleaner way to release the relevant plant compounds without any lingering residues or other unpleasant additives.

    4. Go Local

    Seek out products made in the USA. The shorter the distance your product has to travel, the better it is on the environment. Plus, it helps support jobs in the U.S.

    5. Choose Only Hemp-Derived CBD Products for Your Pet

    Always make sure you’re giving CBD to your dog with 0% THC. THC is the substance that causes a psychoactive high. It’s not only illegal in many states, but also it can make your dog sick, since THC is toxic to dogs.

    Ultimately, you want to be as cautious and as thorough as possible when shopping for CBD products for your dog. With so many CBD products on the market, it’s difficult to know which is the best. Our advice? Be cautious, be conscious and choose Bido Pet CBD by Curaleaf Hemp. We make every product from pure hemp-based CBD, with 0% THC and absolutely no artificial flavors, colorings or additional solvents.
