What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid known to have many health and wellness benefits. It has been used to treat a variety of ailments since ancient times. All of our products are infused with full spectrum CBD derived from the highest-grade USA organically grown hemp and are safe for animals.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD for animals may provide pain relief. Cannabidiol can relieve anxiety, arthritis, seizures, pain and inflammation, while protecting the nervous system and helping with bowl problems. It has also been used in treating some side effects from cancer treatment.
We didn't like the non-transparency of the market
It was very important to us that we didn't take any shortcuts in developing our CBD products and wanted to have a hands-on relationship with the farm we sourced from. It was non-negotiable that we use a farm in the USA instead of going overseas like many companies. We needed a relationship with the grower to create transparency to the end user. Blooming Culture wants you to have confidence that what you are giving your pet is pure – free of pesticides and solvents – and beneficial.
Why are there so many pricing tiers between companies?
There are so many reasons for the pricing differences between companies and this really upset us. Unless you do your due diligence, you may not even realize why you are paying more or less for certain products. Some reasons that may factor into pricing differences are:
- Is it sourced overseas?
- What are the milligrams?
- What is the dosing structure?
If you buy a low mg, it will cost less but be consumed much faster.
Why choose Blooming Culture?
Sourcing industrial hemp overseas as many companies do means that the oil is being pulled from the stalk. Huge amounts of industrial hemp are required to extract a small amount of CBD, thereby raising the risk of contaminants because hemp is a “bio-accumulator” that draws toxins from the soil. There have been many documented tests that show companies are selling CBD oil/products that contain almost no CBD.
What is the shelf life?
Once you receive your product there is a 1 year shelf life for ingestibles and 2 year topicals.
Are your products vegan and nut free?
Yes, all of our products are vegan and our Sunflower Seed Butter is produced in a facility that is free of the top 8 food allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy, eggs, wheat, fish, and shellfish.
How do Cannabinioids work on my pet's body?
- Your pet's endocannabinoid system is made up of special receptors that can interact with CBD.
- There are two types of receptors within the endocannabinoid system, CB1 and CB2.
- CB1 receptors are concentrated near the brain and the central nervous system.
- Reproductive organs
- CB2 receptors live within body's immune system and peripheral organs.
- Do note, your pet's endocannabinoid system is unique, like a fingerprint. That means certain pets may be less or more sensitive to the impact of CBD oil.
