Education Spot Light: CBD & PRC Hemp Oil for Pets

Updated: May 19, 2020

An all-natural approach to living is becoming more and more popular by the day. More than ever, people are striving to achieve healthy, well-rounded lifestyles. Currently, people are taking it one step further and embracing a healthier approach to the wellness of their furry friends.

There are dog massage therapists, canine raw food diets, and even acupuncture for dogs and cats. Currently, the hot-ticket pet health conversation is all about CBD oil and PCR hemp oil. This particular conversation is clouded with stigma and a lack of scientific understanding. Fortunately, we rounded up some information that is going to help demystify CBD oil and PCR hemp oil.

What is CBD Oil?

Before we dive into the details of PCR hemp oil, we need to cover the basics. Cannabidiol (CBD oil) has been a long-standing topic of discussion in the homeopathic health world. Specifically, CBD oil is one of 104 chemical compounds derived from the cannabis plant. These chemical compounds are referred to as cannabinoids. You are likely familiar with CBD's infamous cannabinoid cousin "THC". Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is best known for its psychoactive qualities. In layman's terms, THC is the architect behind the feeling of getting "high". CBD, on the other hand, does not possess this psychoactive quality.

What is Hemp?

Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. It is a hearty plant and grows quickly in diverse soil conditions. Cultivation of hemp for industrial purposes has been done by many civilizations for over 12,000 years. It is used to make over 25,000 consumer products and has various eco -friendly applications including clothing, rope, canvas, paper, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, and food.

The hemp plant contains less than .3% THC. To clarify, that is less than one percent. Therefore, products made from hemp are completely safe and free of psychoactive qualities. There are barely trace amounts of THC in CBD oil. CBD oil is derived exclusively from the hemp plant. You can wear your hemp jeans, drink your hemp milk latte, and take CBD oil, all without getting "high".

What is PCR Hemp Oil?

PCR, aka Phyto-Cannabinoid Rich, hemp oil is a natural supplement derived from the hemp plant. Like CBD, PCR hemp oil is a cannabinoid. PCR hemp oil may also be called full-spectrum hemp or CBD oil.

Not all CBD Oils are Created Equally

If you are sold on the powers of CBD PCR hemp oil for your pet, the next question you probably have is to figure out where you can get it! Before you go out and make a purchase, you need to understand that not all CBD hemp oil products are created equally. With its skyrocketing popularity, companies are virtually popping up overnight selling CBD oil. Racing to the finish line often leads to cutting corners to save time and money in production. You should only purchase CBD oil that is:

· Lab-tested

· Made from the Hemp plant

· Non-GMO

· Soy Free

· Full Spectrum

· 100% natural

· Exclusively made for dogs & cats

Extra cautious dog parents may also consider asking the company in question for an analysis certification. Trusted brands should have no problem scientifically backing up their products. Here at Shaggy Chic Spaw & Boutique, the health and happiness of our clients and their furry friends mean the world to us. That’s why we carry CannaNaturals, by The Healthy Hemp Pet Company located in Salt Lake City, which provides quality control and documentation of the active ingredients in their products consistently. They provide a Certificate of Analysis on each batch of hemp oil we purchase and are more than happy to share it! They have also joined the National Animal Supplement Council and comply with the quality control and labeling protocols they prescribe.

How can PRC Hemp Oil help my pet?

PRC Hemp Oil can products provide natural support for the health and balance of your pet’s endocannabinoid systems. These products are not intended for use as the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease or condition. Making these product claims in the marketplace establishes the product as a “drug” under section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, for which the claims must be evaluated by the FDA.

PCR hemp products reduce pain and inflammation, relieves anxiety and stress, fights cancer without side-effects, prevents seizures and irritable bowels, improves overall gut health, improves heart health, and supports a strong autoimmune system. The reason for this is due to the cannabinoid receptors in your pet’s brain and nervous system. By giving them PCR products you are giving them a product that perfectly interacts with their biology for a more powerful, longer lasting effect without the side-effects associated with other pharmaceutical drugs. And again, PCR products will not get your pets high.

How can I tell if PRC Hemp Oil products are helping my pet?

For the locally made CannaNatural products that we carry, The Healthy Pet Company provides its consumers with a Benefit Tracking Worksheet (see below) that will help you to track your pet’s response to hemp pet products. You can also stop using the product and see if your pet’s initial problems return. You can track your pet’s reactions to the product for yourself, or you can send in the information that you gather to The Healthy Pet Company to help you assess its use. Not only will you be providing feedback that is valuable to helping other pets and their use of PRC Hemp Oil, but you can also receive a FREE product from them after tracking your pet’s behavior for four weeks.
