Full Spectrum CBD...

Exclusive to Veterinarians

Hemp Drops contains full-spectrum concentrate from Australian grown hemp, extracted using the hydrocarbon method. 

PHYTOCANNABINOIDS: THC AND CBD

 

Hemp flowers and herbage contain valuable phytocannabinoids, which are naturally occurring cannabinoids that are unique to the cannabis plant.  As a whole plant extract, Hemp Drops contains these phytocannabinoids, including the two most commonly recognised to be of medicinal benefit - CBD and THC.  Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a psychotropic substance (or intoxicant), whereas cannabidiol (CBD) is not an intoxicant.

Hemp Drops are made from the hemp plant, which contains extremely low concentrations of THC.  Independent third-party tests by the University of Western Sydney (UWS) confirm that the THC levels in the cultivated hemp plants used in Hemp Drops production are <0.2%.

A Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is available upon request. All batches are tested by independent third parties for potency, purity and safety.

Full Spectrum vs

CBD Isolate ?

 

Hemp Drops are a full-spectrum or "whole-plant" hemp product.  This means that the product contains the full spectrum of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, waxes and lipids that naturally occur in the hemp plant.  That is, more than 500 natural compounds! 

 

What is the benefit of a full spectrum product?

 

Many researchers believe that the phytocannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp plant work synergistically to exert some therapeutic effect, known as the “entourage effect”. Although the effect is not fully understood, it is acknowledged that products containing full spectrum whole plant extracts are more beneficial and bioavailable than products containing only CBD isolate.

CBD isolate

 

CBD isolate products are generally labelled as being 99 percent or more pure CBD depending on the form they come in. As the name suggests, these products have been isolated down to just the CBD molecule. 

 

Isolates are more refined, so it has no discernible taste or odour.  Research indicates that while CBD isolate may offer certain health benefits, the effects may be less notable than when using a full-spectrum CBD product. The research also indicates that CBD isolate’s effects against pain and inflammation may only occur at a specific dose. This is in contrast to full-spectrum products, where effects increase with an increase in dose.

Ingredients

Hemp Drops contain 2% Hydrocarbon Hemp Extract, 88% Hemp Seed oil and 10% MCT Oil with added vitamin A + E for stability

 

​Each 50ml bottle contains 1000mg of Hemp Extract, or 20mg/ml. 

Of the 1000mg, approximately 700mg consists of cannabinoids (CBD and it’s pre-cursor CBD-A), and the remaining 300mg consisting of terpenes, flavonoids and lipids.

​Why MCT oil?

MCT (Medium-Chain-Triglycerides) Oil derived from Coconut Oil is the most common carrier oil for hemp products.  MCT oil in conjunction with phytocannabinoids, carries these compounds directly to the bloodstream, which assists in almost completely avoiding the first-pass metabolism process. This allows for a greater concentration of phytocannabinoids to be absorbed into the bloodstream, allowing for quick and efficient delivery.

Why is a Certificate of Analysis important?

 

A certificate of analysis (“CoA”) is a report from an accredited laboratory that details the chemical analysis of the CBD product. A CoA is one of the most important tools a veterinarian currently has to be able to determine the quality and purity of a CBD product.

It is not uncommon for owners to source their own CBD products online or from local sources. Not only is this illegal in Australia, but sourcing CBD in this way is also carries inherent risks.  Usually these products do not declare the amount of CBD and/or THC in their product, or whether there are any other potential contaminants. 

 

Owners also frequently neglect to inform their veterinary practitioner that they have been administering a CBD product to their animal.  This is relevant information for a veterinarian in devising medication plans, anaesthetic protocols etc.

Hemppet uses an accredited, independent laboratory with no financial interest in the result or company.   Every batch of CBD product is tested individually, and a CoA is generated for each run.

Dosage Guidelines

  • It is recommended to follow a “start low and go slow” dosing regimen.  This means, start with a very low dose at night time (0.3mg/kg-0.5mg/kg) and increase to dosing morning and night as tolerance occurs and the therapeutic window widens. 

  • The dose can then be titrated up every 5 to 7 days, by 0.25mg/kg, based on the patient’s response and tolerance to the product.   The goal is to find the clinically effective dose for each individual dog.

  • Generally, the product is dosed orally at an interval of every 12 hours.  If appropriate, depending on the severity of the condition treated and the dog’s tolerance, dosing may be implemented every 8 hours.
