CBD 101

We're excited to say that more than ever before, people are welcoming CBD into their pets' lives in an effort to get happier, stay calmer and remain healthier.  We've heard from countless owners saying our biscuits and oils have helped stop fear aggression or helped solve a serious separation anxiety problem; and even how they've reduced pain and inflammation or occurrences of seizures.

But as the industry is growing, so is the misinformation.  We wanted to be the first to tell you how CBD works, and why we think our products are the very best for your pet.

And...pay attention!  There will be a quiz.  (Just kidding, sort of.  More on that in a moment).


So...what exactly is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found in the hemp plant.  Cannabidiol, or CBD, acts on the body's endocannabinoid system, which is the central regulatory system, known to affect lots of bodily processes (like digestion, mood, and sleep).  Usually, a pet's body naturally produces its own cannabinoids that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system.  But sometimes, with outside stressors like being sick or injured, this system can get a bit depleted.  That's where CBD comes in.  It binds to these receptors, ensuring the body maintains homeostasis (a fancy way of saying a state of well-being).

Which benefits should I expect?

The endocannabinoid system regulates bodily processes such as digestion, anxiety, mood, pain, inflammation, active recovery, and sleep. Your pet might expect relief from any affliction upsetting these natural mechanisms.  CBD also contains both Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, alongside antioxidants, which packs a serious punch when it comes to anti-inflammatory properties.

Why use Austin and Kat ™ for healthy pets? 

We love our pets…and to help them make their day brighter is the very least we can do, as we get so much joy and love back from them.  So if they have any pain, inflammation, anxiety, fear, or even a small little something that's just "not quite right" we want to help them the best way we know how.  All biscuits and oils contain a proprietary blend of non-toxic, non-psychoactive cannabinoids derived from agricultural hemp.  Our CBD is also guaranteed to be free of heavy metals, solvents, contaminants and pesticides. Unlike other companies out there, all of our oil comes from certified US farms.  It's a safe, natural way to keep your pet their very best.

Are there any adverse side effects of using the biscuits? 

CBD is also non-toxic, not psychoactive, and non-habit forming - we want keeping your pet comfortable to be comfortable and worry-free for you, too.  

Is CBD legal? 

That's a resounding YES!  (It’s very, very exciting to say CBD is legal.)

And...what is the entourage effect?

The what?!  Perhaps you've heard about full-spectrum CBD (vs. CBD isolate) and the entourage effect.  We use full-spectrum CBD for it's medicinal properties -a.k.a. the 'whole plant effect' where bioactive compounds work synergystically together to optimize health and wellness.



We batch test everything for consistency and purity, using independent labs.  Find our results posted at any given time right here.  Using the choicest full-spectrum and hemp-derived ingredients, we make treats for pets with wellness in mind.  We want you to make the most of all your adventures with your best friend.
