achieve balance with CBD

CBD 101

So far, scientists have identified 119 different cannabinoids present in cannabis plants (Cannabis sativa) — the most familiar being THC and CBD. THC is the cannabinoid known for imparting that infamous “high.” CBD, on the other hand, is known for its therapeutic, calming benefits without the intoxicating effects.

Hemp and marijuana are labels often used interchangeably, but they’re not quite the same thing. Both plants belong to the cannabis family. Marijuana plants contain between 5 and 20% THC. Hemp plants are bred to contain no more than 0.3% THC. Cannabis plants containing THC above 0.3% are considered to be marijuana.

doGüDs’ premium, highly concentrated CBD hemp extracts contain less than 0.3% THC, and are extracted to the highest safety and quality standards from hemp sustainably farmed in Kentucky.

Yes! In order for hemp to be hemp and not marijuana, it must meet a federal mandate of less than 0.3% THC content. doGüDs’ CBD extracts contain either zero THC or less than 0.3% THC and are legal throughout the U.S. — including states in which marijuana is not.

In the early ’90s, scientists discovered that all vertebrates — including you, have an internal endocannabinoid system with receptors throughout the body. This internal system produces naturally occurring cannabinoid molecules that regulate your mood, memory, appetite, pain, stress and anxiety, sleep, metabolism, heart health, immunity and more. When you get hot, for instance, your endocannabinoid system switches into gear and your body sweats to cool you down.

When your internal systems are all humming along in harmony, that’s a state of equilibrium (or balance) known as homeostasis. Homeostasis is necessary to your health and wellbeing. Homeostasis is the goal. Studies are ongoing but suggest that supplementing your endocannabinoid system with phytocannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids) such as CBD may boost your internal system to help you maintain homeostasis.

Poke around the internet and you’ll find plenty of first-hand reports from those who benefit  from a daily regimen of CBD oil in helping them manage: inflammation, chronic pain, muscle aches, cramps, arthritis, joint pain, neuropathy, headaches, migraines, mood, memory, stress, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, appetite, addiction and much more.

Just to be clear, these are still early days for CBD, so in-depth studies are few and far between, FDA-approved research is lacking, and as such we legally cannot promise that our products will cure or prevent any health conditions or diseases. We recommend you see for yourself if CBD makes a difference in your life — it has in ours.

Holding the oil underneath your tongue allows it to be absorbed into your bloodstream within seconds. Cannabinoids, including CBD, are fat soluble. That’s why our CBD is combined with a high-quality coconut base oil — its easily absorbed medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) ensure a rapid release of CBD into the body. 

Directions:

Shake bottle vigorously. Place one full dropper in mouth, hold for 60 seconds, swallow. Effects can be subtle and may not take full effect for as much as an hour — it’s a little different for everybody so you’ll have to see how your body responds.

Suggested:

1 ml serving for adults 1-2 times a day or as needed. Start with a low dose and figure out what works best for you. As with any supplement, consult a doctor if pregnant, breastfeeding or taking medications. 

To preserve potency and extend longevity: 

Store in a cool, dry place away from light — a refrigerator is best but a cool basement will do. Close the lid tightly to avoid prolonged exposure to air.

choosing doGüDs

Our Full Flower extract was formulated to provide broad spectrum of phytocannabinoids — it contains less than 0.3% THC. If you’re looking for the combined benefits of cannabinoids including CBD, this is for you.

Our THC Free extract was formulated to contain non-detectable levels of THC* while offering the concentrated benefits of CBD. While it’s unlikely CBD oil would affect your results, if you’re concerned about drug screening, this is for you.

* According to third-party lab tests.

You can trust doGüDs for so many reasons…

  1. Our premium hemp is grown in America, unlike lesser quality products imported from China and Europe. There is literally no better place in the world to grow hemp than Kentucky — you want the best and we found it for you.
  2. We have a close relationship with our Kentucky farmers, who belong to a collective that must adhere to higher standards of cultivation in order to guarantee the best product.
  3. We produce CBD extracts for high quality rather than a cheap price. From seed to harvest, there’s no cutting corners. Our farmers do not use chemical pesticides — in fact, aerial surveys are conducted to ensure that our hemp is harvested from farms at least two miles from chemical pesticide usage. Our farmers use sustainable growing methods to protect the soil and conserve water.
  4. There are no hexane or butane solvents in our extraction process. CO2 extraction is more environmentally friendly and produces a higher quality botanical oil without exposure to high temperature or toxic solvents. At doGüDs, state-of-the-art extraction takes place in an FDA-registered and -inspected, food-grade compliant facility.
  5. Regular third-party testing in an accredited laboratory ensures that doGüDs extracts are free of contaminants and stay true to the ingredients printed on our label. Valid Certificate of Analysis lab reports are available on our product pages.
  6. As a B-Corp, doGüDs is committed to more than just making a buck. Our mission is to be the kind of business the world needs now — one that provides an excellent product without harming the planet, insects, wildlife or humans. That means we select our partners and processes thoughtfully.
  7. We offer a money-back guarantee. Try it. If you’re not convinced, send us your empty bottle within 30 days of purchase and we’ll refund your purchase with no questions asked.

Shipping usually takes 2-7 days. The amount of time it takes for doGüDs to ship to you will depend on two things: your location and the shipping option you select. We’ll be shipping your order from Massachusetts.  We endeavor to be as timely as possible but please allow up to 48 hours for us to process your order.

We currently only ship to the US. Send an email to happy@doguds.com to find out when we’ll be shipping to your country.

We’ve made this pretty simple: After your doGüDs order arrives, give it a try for 30 days and if you don’t love it, return your empty bottle for a full refund. No hoops to jump through. We just ask that you be a first-time customer and return no more than one bottle, please.

Why 30 days? There’s roughly a month’s worth of doses in a doGüDs bottle, depending on the amount you take. 30 days should be enough time to determine a dosage amount and frequency that feels most effective — your weight, body chemistry and health all have a part to play in determining your unique ideal dosage. Start with a low dose and figure out what works best for you from there.

To request a refund after your 30-day trial: Send an email to happy@doguds.com or call us at 866 247 7039 (Mon-Fri EST) within 30 days of your purchase to let us know you’d like a refund. Our customer service rep, who happens to be a super nice and very helpful human, will tell you how to send your empty bottle back to us.
