  • Clarification On How CBD May Help Pets

    Have you heard the buzz about treating animals with cannabidiol, a constituent of the hemp plant? It might sound a bit unusual, but it’s true that many are using hemp-based products to treat common ailments among their pets.

    This year, Therapy Pure Essentials has big plans to release supplemental nutritional oils for both cats and dogs, using MCT coconut oil as well as our top-quality pure hemp CBD isolate. While our furry friends do require a different dosage of CBD than a human would, the endocannabinoid systems within our bodies are actually quite similar.

    Unlike humans, our animal companions cannot always communicate with us to tell us what is bothering them. More often we notice small but significant changes in their mannerisms that progress over time. Environmental factors play a big part in our pets’ health and well-being, as well as the side effects of the aging process. But the single biggest factor in pets’ behavior is their daily nutrition.

    All over the U.S., people have begun treating their dogs and cats with products containing cannabidiol (CBD). Three of the most common issues they treat are:

    Joint Pain & Stiffness

    As our pets age, some deterioration in the condition of their joints and muscles is to be expected. Whether your pet has been diagnosed with arthritis or an injury, or if he or she is simply showing signs of irritation like limping, licking, or sensitivity to your touch; CBD can help. Its anti-inflammatory properties will not stop the pain completely, but it may help to provide some relief and extra energy for your companion, while having a calming effect and lessening the frequency of those repetitive behaviors, such as licking.

    Poor Appetite

    When a pet is not eating meals with enthusiasm, or worse – not eating at all – their owners rightly become concerned. Poor appetite in cats and dogs can be linked to many health issues. Other times, the aging process, a change in environment, or dramatic mood changes can cause a pet to eat less than usual. In this case, a CBD supplement can act as the perfect pick-me-up to encourage your pet to eat more. Remember, CBD may be helpful for some pets, but is definitely never a substitute for your veterinarian’s professional advice.

    Anxiety

    Our animal companions can become anxietal for many different reasons – just like human anxiety. They might become distraught every time we leave the home to go to work or run errands. Riding inside a vehicle, or completing a move can also throw off a pet’s emotions. In many cases, CBD supplements tend to keep pets calm – before, during and after such stimulating events. If your pet is prone to drama when they are out of their comfort zone, a CBD oil may be a natural solution.

    CBD is non-psychoactive and will not get your pet high. If you’re the type of pet owner who has tried everything for their companion, and still notice issues amid everyday life, these supplements could help.

  • Arthritic Joints Can Benefit From CBD

    Joint problems, which affect people of all ages, often go without proper treatment and become exacerbated by everyday life. Arthritis in particular is difficult to treat because there are so many different triggers involved.

     Unfortunately, many patients with arthritis feel as if they are on a runaway train with their symptoms, using treatments that only work for a short time, then starting all over again when the pain returns later on. So many are seeking a holistic approach, one where diet and nutrition take precedence over pills.

     Learn more about how CBD may be able to help treat pain and inflammation from arthritis. Maybe you too can break the cycle and achieve a pain-free lifestyle with this powerful plant based supplement.

    Stops Swelling

    Your body’s endocannabinoid system is the key to controlling your mood, sleep cycle, and the cycle of inflammation as well. When your immune system responds to environmental pollutants or other stimuli, it becomes inflamed, often creating swollen irritations that are concentrated within the joints.

     Thanks to inflammation, arthritis pain can last days or even weeks with no apparent “cause.” No matter what triggers your arthritis, regular supplementation with a CBD oil can help regulate your body’s internal processes and make it easier to soothe swollen joints.

    Relieves Pain

    In addition to tackling the sources of inflammation in the joints, supplementing your routine with CBD can actually help to quell the pain sensation.

     While it may not act the same as a painkiller, or even create any feeling at all, CBD reacts with receptors inside the body to help control your body’s response to pain. If you’ve been looking for a non-psychoactive supplement to aid with pain relief, you’ll find it in a potent CBD oil.

    Protects Long-Term

    The neuroprotective powers of CBD actually work in conjunction with your body to repel damage to your nerves and help heal from previous damage.

     Cannabinoids, for as much as we currently know about them, tend to work progressively as long as the right dosage is met. In other words, there’s no known upper limit to how much you can heal. That means your pain-free days will only increase over time as you continue to use CBD oil supplements.


     If you have tried everything to treat your arthritis symptoms, and just feel like you’re going backward, you are far from alone. Thousands of arthritic patients are re-thinking their treatment strategies and switching from a reactive approach to a plan of whole-body wellness instead.

     Give your body the nutrition it has been craving, and watch your symptoms subside. Support your joint health at any stage of life with Therapy Pure Essentials CBD and MCT oils, in five subtle flavorings.

  • CBD Is Supportive of Good Skin Health

    How much money have you spent this year trying to improve your skin? We’re guessing far too much and hardly anything to show for it!

    Many modern skin products do not treat the source of the problem we’re trying to fix. This is especially true in cases of acne, psoriasis and eczema. Rather than treat what’s going on under the surface, we apply acids, peroxides and steroids to the skin, literally attacking the cells from all sides and leading to side effects like irritation and dryness.

  • What Are The Causes Of Inflammation?

    Pain, stiffness, and swelling are health annoyances that affect everyone, from elite athletes to the aging population. When there are no other explanations for the root cause of these symptoms, we say that they are due to chronic inflammation.

  • CBD: The New Hope For Epilepsy Patients

    CBD: The New Hope For Epilepsy Patients

    If you’ve ever known anyone living with seizures, then you may also know that treatment options are heartbreakingly limited.

    Among other uses, the correct dose of Cannabidiol or CBD – the second most prevalent cannabinoid found in the hemp and marijuana plant – has been found to stop seizures in their tracks. When used over time as a supplement.

    We are not doctors. However, as manufacturers of pure CBD-infused products, we feel compelled to share important information with you, the health-conscious consumer we know and love.

    Read on to learn of a few instances where cannabidiol (CBD) has been found to be safe, therapeutic, and even curb epileptic seizures in people of all ages. We hope it will help you understand the relationship between the body’s endocannabinoid system and its connection to epileptic seizures.

    Safe Supplement

    First and foremost: we want you to know that administering cannabidiol as a daily supplement has already been found safe in a clinical setting.

    When compared with many pharmaceuticals that epilepsy patients might be prescribed, hemp-based supplements are extremely safe. Take our MCT oil CBD supplements, for example. The cannabinoids we use are extracted and isolated from pure hemp oil. What makes the cut for our oils is only the best non-psychoactive CBD. It’s clean, consistent and will not impair your judgment or motor skills.

    Body & Mind Protection

    Among other amazing medicinal properties, CBD has been found to be an anticonvulsant in many studies. This means that cannabidiol can actually stop the involuntary movements of the body which occur during a seizure – protecting you from unknowingly hurting yourself.

    Epileptic seizures, especially frequent ones, can also have a very negative effect on brain health. Luckily, the proven neuroprotective properties of CBD come in handy to help epilepsy patients recover from seizures, while shielding vulnerable brain cells from those that may occur in the future.

    Juvenile Patients

    Due to federal regulations on cannabis extractions, getting approval for clinical studies on CBD with minors, young children, and even infants as subjects is extremely difficult. However, qualitative studies, surveys and anecdotal evidence directly from the epilepsy and Dravet syndrome community have begun to change the conversation.


     Therapy Pure Essentials supplements can help epilepsy patients and their loved ones progress closer to healing and a happy life. Whether you are a longtime seizure sufferer, or just have occasional one here and there, you can’t afford not to look at all your options when it comes to daily nutrition that supports your brain health and resilience.

     Always remember to talk with your doctor prior to beginning a new healthcare regimen or switching off of any of your current prescribed medications.

  • How To Start The Conversation About CBD

    When it comes to starting on a daily regimen of cannabidiol, or CBD, many people are nervous about how people in their lives may react or respond to their treatment decision.

    It can be overwhelming enough trying to learn about how this chemical works within your body, let alone having to explain it to your doctor or your family and loved ones. After all, hemp-derived cannabidiol is often lumped in with marijuana – wrongly, since CBD comes with none of the side effects of THC, the main chemical in cannabis.
