Talking CBD and Pets with Adored Beast Apothecary

CBD for pets

Here at Source, we’re big animals lovers. From dogs and cats to snakes and tigers – we’ve helped thousands of animals big and small with all kinds of conditions. A great deal of what we do, including research and product development, has to do with CBD and pets.

And last week, we joined Julie Anne Lee of Adored Beast Apothecary to talk about CBD and pets and just how CBD works.

We dove deep into the science together.

Some of the things we covered include:

  • Full spectrum CBD vs isolate
  • If your CBD should be organic
  • How to read a certificate of analysis
  • CBD and pets and the endocannabinoid system in animals
  • Benefits of CBD for our animals

We had so much fun and you’re guaranteed to learn a lot – so check it out!

  2. Fill your molds about 1/4 full.
