In the same way that poppy seeds can infamously trigger false positive drug test results, the trace amount of THC (<0.3%) in legal CBD products can potentially do the same as marijuana. Until the underlying science is better understood, we recommend consulting with your healthcare provider before consuming CBD if you anticipate the need to take a drug test.Read more
Is CBD safe for pets? How does it work?
CBD is generally considered safe for dogs and cats. Our products are formulated according to your pet’s size. There is no known risk to animals of “overdosing” on CBD.

What is CBD and how does it work?
CBD is one of more than 100 cannabinoids—natural chemical constituents—found in the cannabis sativa plant. Over the past few years, CBD has become widely recognized for an array of potential health benefits due to its effect on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which affects stress, the immune system, and pain sensitivity, among many other factors.
