The Benefits of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil for Pets


CBD has been the term commonly used for products containing the compound cannabidiol. However, CBD is only one of 100+ beneficial phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. The term "CBD" could also be used to denote an "isolate" product or one that contains CBD only. Holistic Hound formulas are full-spectrum hemp oil.


What Is Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil?

Full-spectrum is a term that is more indicative of the hemp oil that is used in Holistic Hound's products. Their oil contains CBD, as well as all the other beneficial components found in the cannabis plant that work together collectively. The collaborative result of these elements working together is called "The Entourage Effect."


The entourage, of sorts, within Holistic Hound's full-spectrum formulas, is comprised of:

  • CBD (is a cannabinoid with no intoxicating effects, it is known for its ability to relieve pain and relax the mind)

  • Other trace cannabinoids including CBG (CBG has no intoxicating effects and has been known to provide relaxation without drowsiness, stimulates brain cell and bone growth, supports immunity, and digestive/urinary health)

  • 30+ Terpenes (terpenes enhance the effects of cannabinoids and are the aromatic oils found within the hemp plant)

  • Flavonoids (flavonoids give the hemp plant its color, they have also been found to have antioxidant, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, and they help with the absorption of cannabinoids)

  • Antioxidants (protect cells from free-radicals)

  • Fatty acids (approximately a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids)

  • Vitamins (such as Vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, and E)

  • Minerals (including Iron, Beta Carotene, Zinc, Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium)

Their blog consists of an assortment of informative articles about CBD, such as the articles titled "Everything You Need to Know About Holistic Hound CBD Products" and "CBD for Cats: Everything You Need to Know". They also have a great educational article about their medical mushroom supplements, "Benefits of Mushrooms as an Alternative Remedy for Dogs".



I can personally say that CBD has had a huge positive impact on the health and wellbeing of both my dog and my two cats. I give my dog CBD to help him with his separation anxiety and to help relieve any joint pain he may be experiencing. I also give each of my cats a CBD soft treat at bedtime to prevent any 3 AM cat parties and rampages they may have planned. Works every time!
