Hemp is a non-psychoactive branch of the cannabis plant genus. It contains some of the same compounds as marijuana, but does not give you a “high.” One of the first crops cultivated by man, hemp is now used to craft over 25,000 items; from eco-friendly building materials to nutritional supplements.
What are Cannabinoids?
All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) made up of receptors and neurotransmitters in the brain, immune system, central and peripheral nervous systems.
The ECS’s purpose is to keep us in a state of homeostasis, which it does by regulating many psychological processes that can be related to mood, appetite, and more.
In order for the Endocannabinoid System to function, the body utilizes compounds called cannabinoids. Some of these natural chemical compounds are produced within the body, but we can also supplement them from plants, like CBD found in hemp oil.
Cannabinoids found in hemp oil interact with the same system as our endo-cannabinoids, making it a truly natural way to support the bodies of cats, dogs and humans alike.
Is Hemp Legal?
Yes, hemp is 100% legal when it contains 0.3% less THC – the ingredient that gives marijuana it’s recreational appeal.
Our products at Purfurred do not carry THC – cannabis’ psychoactive ingredient. Meaning your pet won’t get a “high” and it is not possible to overdose using a hemp oil supplement.
