(PRESS RELEASE) By now, most are well aware of the most popular new supplement found in just about every pet store from coast to coast, cannabidiol (CBD). And, just as the pet industry- retailers, distributors, and everyday pet owners alike start to understand the why, when and how behind CBD and its many powerful benefits to our pets, enter the next big phytocannabinoid: CBG.

Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of more than 100 phytocannabinoids in the hemp/cannabis plant and for decades has been known as the chemical parent or “stem cell” of CBD and THC. CBG is considered one of the five major cannabinoids: cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBN). CBG is found in young cannabis or hemp plants, and although there are some similarities to CBD, it is distinct in both chemical structure and concentration. Today, Holistic Hound is first to market with a full spectrum CBG oil for pets.

“CBG is not ‘the new CBD’ or a replacement for CBD, but rather an amazing complement to it,” said Heidi Hill, certified homeopath and founder of Holistic Hound. “Although there are some similarities with other cannabinoids, CBG has its own unique healing benefits and is an exciting new product option for pet parents looking for natural alternatives to improving the health, wellness and longevity of dogs and cats. Since 2015, we have been a leader of the CBD category in the pet industry, and it’s truly our privilege to continue pioneering product development. We’re proud to be the first company to introduce CBG to the pet industry and look forward to continuing our work as a trusted, transparent and educational resource in this space, the pet industry, and among pet owners nationwide.”

Early research suggests that CBG has powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, with strong affinities for the bladder, bowel and brain. It is also known to help with anxiety and depression, but it is unique in that it has a mildly energizing/uplifting effect compared to the usually calming/relaxing effects of CBD. This results in increased focus and clarity (think training!). It has greater potential for use during the day for dogs that experience grogginess with CBD. It is also believed to naturally increase dopamine levels which help regulate attention, learning and emotional responses. Research also points to CBG having greater anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties than other cannabinoids.

“CBG has great synergy with CBD and can be very balancing,” Hill added. “We believe they can be used together to address an even wider range of health concerns.”

Holistic Hound is currently taking orders for their new full spectrum CBG oil and can provide wholesale pricing and additional details upon request at holistichound.com. The MSRP for the 300 mg oil is $67.99 and will be shipping the end of September.

As a trusted company in the industry, we know they’ll continue to be at the forefront of this rapidly growing category in the pet channel.
