Will my dog get "high" from Hippie Hounds treats?
Your dog will not get a "high" from our products. All cannabinoids are active in the psyche, but THC is the intoxicating cannabinoid. Our products contain a wide range of cannabinoids, but the most prominent would be CBD. CBD has reuptake inhibition and actually assists your body in making its own endogenous cannabinoids such as AEA and 2-AG.
What testing is performed on your products?
Our distillate (hemp oil) comes to us with a Certificate of Analysis (COA). This testing shows molecular profile including cannabinoids and terpenes present. A COA also provides "freedom from" testing. Freedom from heavy metals, pesticides, and solvents. Our products are then individually tested for both potency and nutritional analysis. All test results are available for the public! Send us an email today to request a copy.
Are Hippie Hounds products legal?
Absolutely!Thanks to the 2018 farm bill, hemp is federally legal. Hemp and Marijuana are both cannabis. The difference between Hemp and Marijuana is the percent of one molecule. The top cola of a cannabis plant is tested at the time of harvest. If it tests above 0.3% THC, it’s federally illegal marijuana. If it tests below 0.3% THC it’s federally legal hemp.
Do we see any interplay between cannabinoids and our typically prescribed pharmaceuticals?
We actually do and that’s why it is so important to have your veterinarian involved in the conversation when starting cannabis therapy. Cannabinoids are metabolized by the cytochrome p450 complex in the liver, along with 60% of the pharmaceuticals your Veterinarian prescribes. We also see cannabinoids bind to your serotonin, dopamine, opioid, and cannabinoid receptors.
