CBD 101 - The Beginner's Guide to Cannabidiol

This guest post is from PENELOPE’S BLOOM, a premier supplier of CBD for pets.

A new trend in the supplement market is CBD for humans. Did you know that CBD is also beneficial for pets?

We invited one of our partners, Penelope’s Bloom to explain all you need to know about giving CBD to your pets and the health benefits that can be realized by doing so.

What is CBD? And what is it used for?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is the second most prevalent compound in the cannabis plant, after THC. CBD is often mentioned as a useful natural therapy for a variety of conditions, including pain management, arthritis and anxiety. Many pets suffer from stress & anxiety, joint pain, mobility issues, skin conditions, allergies, stress from environmental factors and more. Maybe it’s a visit to the groomer that is causing your pet stress, or you may have a senior pet with arthritis and need a supplement for joint support – CBD can make a difference in your pets lives and assist in managing the symptoms and triggers with a wide range of CBD products. 


What is full-spectrum CBD oil and why is it important?

Look for products that contain full-spectrum CBD oil. A full-spectrum extract is one where all the naturally occurring, bioactive compounds have been left in their natural state. While there are thousands of cannabinoids and terpenes present in each plant, and it is not possible to preserve every single one during the manufacturing process. However, when you have full-spectrum oil, none of the cannabinoids were purposefully removed. One of the most important reasons why you should look for full spectrum is because the cannabinoids and terpenes work together to enhance their respective effectiveness. This effect called the entourage effect, makes it possible for different cannabinoids to interact to achieve maximum effects ensuring the best results.


Quality is the highest of virtues.  It’s why cultivated crops like Penelope’s Bloom are organically-grown, pesticide-free and non-GMO to ensure your pets CBD is never being exposed to the kinds of harmful pesticides and chemicals commonly found in other products. Penelope’s Bloom separates out the “good” plants from the “absolute best” uses a specialized CO2 extraction process to draw out highly-purified CBD in one of the cleanest and most energy-efficient manners possible. Once complete, products are rigorously tested for the slightest impurities and imperfections.  The final product is a full-spectrum CBD oil that is made in the USA with transparent lab results on all packaging.
