Why Do I Need CBD?
CBD offers an array of choices within its realm. Various potencies and methods of intake can all be compared and catered to your individual needs and preferences.
CBD products include oils, edible gummies and chocolates, teas, and more. Most items purchased online, including here at Shell Shock CBD, can be shipped to all 50 states. Many people ask “are CBD gummies safe?” so make sure to do your homework and know what you are buying.
The next choice comes down to potency and whether to add THC into the mix. THC is the main psychoactive component in marijuana, but it’s not always present in CBD. Full Spectrum CBD contains the federally legal limit of 0.3% THC, whereas Isolates and Broad Spectrum CBD are THC-free.
It’s important to know that CBD products with less than 0.3% THC will not get you high. But Full Spectrum CBD will show up positive on a drug test.
CBD Products That Are Available To Me?
Much like CBD for humans, research on the effectiveness of CBD in animals is still in its infancy. But, there is encouraging news:
“Studies have shown that CBD products have a wide margin of safety in both dogs and cats. Multiple veterinary studies published in the past two years have shown that, even when given high levels of CBD, pets experienced no major adverse effects” — Dr. Trina Hazzah, DMV
“CBD rarely is associated with any clinical signs in cases of accidental exposure or overdose.” The Morris Animal Foundation
CBD for pets can sometimes contain THC, the primary psychoactive component in marijuana. THC is more harmful in pets than in humans.
The American Kennel Club states: “…(THC) can cause toxicity and even death in dogs when given at prescribed human dosages…”
Knowing the composition of CBD products is, therefore, imperative. You should only buy CBD products that list 100% of their ingredients and are third-party certified.
Most human and pet CBD products contain less than the legal limit of 0.3% THC (including Full Spectrum CBD.) Broad Spectrum CBD products contain 0% THC.
Regardless of THC quantities, it’s important not to interchange human CBD products and dosages with our fur babies. Buying products exclusively designed for pets is always the safest option.
It’s also crucial to disclose to your veterinarian when you are giving your pets CBD—in any amount or form.
So, Is CBD Legal Where I Live?
The legality of CBD can be confusing, because federal and state governments do not completely agree.
If you’re concerned and would like further clarification, you can read more here, or review your state government’s website.
You should also be confident about product transparency when you are purchasing CBD. The Mayo Clinic states: “A recent study of 84 CBD products bought online showed that more than a quarter of the products contained less CBD than labeled. In addition, THC was found in 18 products.”
At Shell Shock CBD, we know that straightforwardness—especially when it comes to an otherwise murky topic—is crucial. As a consumer, you should be 100% aware of what you’re buying at all times. There should be no difference between the detailed ingredients listed on a food product or your CBD purchase.
While other countries are allowed to put whatever ingredients they wish in their products without listing them, we are a non-import company. Our CBD is 100% grown and made right here in the USA.
As per the International Food Information Council (IFIC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), we are required by law to list all the ingredients on our products.
So, for the final question: Will CBD be a part of your journey?
We’re all striving to lead our healthiest, most fulfilled lives. In the end, CBD may or may not be a part of yours. Regardless, it’s always worth seizing and exploring additional medical opportunities.
You never know what may provide the help and relief you seek.
