My interest with cannabinoids and pets peaked in July 2016 when a close friend called me with intriguing news about her dog’s dramatically improved behavior during the week of July 4th. Previously her older chihuahua mix was panicking, shaking and displaying anxious behavior as fireworks went off through the neighborhood. This happened every year and my dogs were no stranger to the stress of fireworks themselves. Frustrated and concerned for her dog, she decided to try to give him some of her own CBD oil blend she had recently acquired for herself. It was hemp based, with no THC. About 15 minutes after giving him the CBD oil, the anxious symptoms reportedly subsided and her chihuahua mix was able to get through the rest of the night without further panic.
This was profound and I was compelled to learn more since a large amount of my busy dog training business hinges on treating dogs with anxious and fear based behavior. I soon jumped head first into the hemp CBD world and discovered there was much more to learn. I began to understand the complexities of the hemp plant, the growing and manufacturing process involved and what the safest options would be for a CBD product for pets.
Through further research and travel around the country I was fortunate to find a small family run CBD manufacturing company with over a decade of experience in manufacturing THC free hemp tinctures for people and pets. We found we had the similar goals and principles and started a long and friendly relationship, providing safe, premium quality hemp based CBD products for pets.
Over the next 6 months, we tested our formula for its effectiveness based on different dosages given for several different health conditions and behaviors with a variety of different types of pets of varying species, breeds, and ages. The results trickled in and overwhelmingly the pet owners were thrilled with the results our pet CBD offered their pets. There were no significant negative side effects of any kind reported and most of the pets, both dogs and cats, seemed to find the formula naturally palatable. This was the beginning of All Paws Essentials.
The All Paws Essentials Difference
All Paws Essentials is a smaller player in the current hemp CBD industry but we’re playing a big game and focusing directly on cannabinoid education, serving our local community and bringing the highest quality pet CBD formulations to your door. We are established in local pet stores across southern California, recommended by local veterinarians and available to purchase online. We are readily available to answer any questions or concerns about giving our high quality CBD infused supplements to your pets.
As mentioned above, we are proud to work with one of the most reputable formulators in the hemp industry.
We maintain a strong established relationship with partner growers and processors who have been in the business of making high quality human grade CBD rich extracts. These partner farms use specific strains of hemp that are proven to deliver high yields of cannabinoid rich flowers and leaves all minimal THC. This is one of the reasons we have consistently achieved a 75-85% CBD concentration in our raw extracts. Good quality plants grown with care yield a high CBD potency. Additionally, all of the hemp in our extracts is organically grown and processed in the USA.
We then utilize a proprietary Co2 extraction process to achieve a broad spectrum product with an abundance of other natural cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes to aid in the absorption and robustness of our Pet CBD. You will never find any solvents or cheap isolate products in any of our products.
Processing then takes a further step to remove the remaining small amounts of residual THC from our extract leaving only the non-psychoactive cannabinoids that benefits your pets.
Final formulations are then done in a state of the art lab and clean room facility under strict food safety management standards. These extra measures are in place to comply with current federal and state guidelines, ensuring you the safest and most reliable Pet CBD products. Additionally, we third party lab test every batch of our extracts to verify proper cannabinoid levels ensuring our extract is free of mold, pesticides, heavy metals, herbicides, solvents and any bio-contaminants.
All of our extracts are then added to a very high quality organic (MCT) coconut oil base which aids in bioavailability and absorption as well as adding natural palatability without artificial flavorings. We have even compared our Pet CBD to other companies claiming to use the same ingredients and ours was found to be the most accepted and palatable when given directly, mixed in food or given on a treat.
