What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most exciting restorative compounds available today, and consumers and pet owners worldwide are discovering its wellness benefits.  CBD is a class of over 100 cannabinoid compounds present in the cannabis plant, including marijuana and hemp.  Found in the plant’s flowers, seeds, and stalks, CBD can be extracted and then processed into a number of CBD products that are used to increase wellness and, as we say at Madrigal Creatives, enable us and those in our care to experience the benefits of Living More.  (See our FAQs to learn more about CBD.) 

CBD interrelates with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS)  found in both humans and animals to facilitate positive interaction with key receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems.  The ECS plays a critical role in the nervous system’s normal functioning and the regulation of countless functions throughout the body.  (See more in our video about the ECS.)  Endocannabinoids such as anandamide and 2-AG, for example, function as neurotransmitters, sending positive chemical messages between cells throughout the nervous system.  The Phytocannabinoids of CBD mimic the role of the body’s own naturally occurring cannabinoids, stimulating the ECS to achieve beneficial health effects throughout the body.

CBD Derived from Hemp

You may hear people refer to CBD that’s derived either from cannabis or from hemp.  Hemp is defined in the U.S. as any cannabis plant containing 0.3% THC per dry weight or less.  When CBD oil is extracted from low-THC hemp, the resulting products are non-psychoactive.  Because Madrigal Creatives products are derived from low-THC hemp, they are federally legal in the U.S. (However, we always recommend checking to see if CBD products have any special restrictions in your locality.)

How Can I Use CBD In My Business?

Madrigal Creatives CBD pet products are available in the form of highly efficacious ingestible sprays.  After using Madrigal Creatives products specially formulated for cats and dogs, our customers have noticed that their pets have increased well-being, decreased anxiety and pain, and over-all improved wellness.  Because they are water soluble, our products are fast acting and easy to administer.   (See our related blog post on the detailed experiences of four pets given CBD.)

Is CBD Safe for the Pets?

Research indicates that CBD is considered to be safe for humans and animals even at higher dosing levels, explored in a research paper titled Safety and Side Effects of Cannabidiol*.  These same studies have been replicated in studies with pets and with rats.  To further ensure the safety of CBD products, all hemp in our pet products are grown by U.S. farmers and are extracted using safe supercritical CO2 extraction processes.  CBD oil is examined at three points in the manufacturing process prior to being incorporated into products to ensure their safety as well as to protect end users from any potential adulterants.  Our commitment to excellence in safety and quality ensure the products we supply for pet use are ultra-pure, safe and effective.
