What is Canna Companion
Canna Companion is a unique blend of Cannabis sativa strains, frequently referred to as hemp, designed to enhance the supportive benefits of the Cannabis plant while minimizing the ‘high-inducing’ concentrations of THC. Each capsule contains a combination of phytocannabinoids, the main group of compounds in hemp, terpenes which help to modulate phytocannabinoids, and flavonoids, which are found in a wide variety of foods we and our pets eat. In addition, hemp contains omega 3 & 6 fatty acids and vitamin B6, helping to provide a holistic approach to your pet's health needs.
We pride ourselves on making a Cannabis product that is developed, manufactured and sent to you by veterinarians. As veterinarians, we are committed to continued research and development in order to ensure our product meets the needs of your pet.
Canna Companion is 100% organic, non-GMO, hemp, made in WA State. We use only vegetarian capsules and ensure all of our packaging is made from recycled materials and is in turn fully recyclable. This even includes the plastic bags, labels, and business cards. Reduce! Reuse! Recycle!
Here’s a quick guide that cuts through the tape and provides a baseline reference for all things cannabis.
Canna Companion should be given by mouth near mealtime or with a treat. It is best to give with food as this ensures the highest rate of absorption from the GI tract. Generally, cats need one capsule per day while dogs need a capsule twice daily. Most pets show a response within a week, but it can take up to two weeks for optimum response. There are some common conditions and typical response times. Please note individual variation is expected and your dog or cat may respond in a short or longer time frame.
|Condition||Administration Recommendations||Response Time|
|Age-related Joint Discomfort||Mild: once daily||10-14 days|
|Moderate: once or twice daily||10-14 days|
|Severe: twice daily||2-3 weeks|
|Neurological Health||Once daily (cats)||Variable|
|Twice daily (dogs)||3-4 weeks|
|Immune Support||Once daily (cats)||4-6 weeks|
Twice daily (dogs)
|Calm Demeanor||Once daily (cats)||6-8 weeks|

How can Canna Companion - benefit pets?
Hemp naturally contains compounds which affect the endocannabinoid system, an internal pathway found in mammals. Nearly every tissue contains receptors which respond to the components found in Cannabis, acting separately but holistically with the body’s other receptor systems. Once triggered, these receptors activate a variety of chemical reactions aimed at supporting the body's natural stress response mechanisms.
Please note that while Canna Companion will likely benefit your pet, it is not designed to be a magic bullet, but rather should be part of a comprehensive care program. It works best when admininstered under the direction of a veterinarian as part of a total health care regimen. Please keep in mind to never change prescribed medication doses or frequency of administration without the explicit advice from your attending veterinarian. Hemp has no known negative interactions with other medications or supplements. Lastly, please note that due to the decades long prohibition on cannabis, there are no double blinded studies on how cannabis products can help dogs and cats.
