What’s the Difference Between CBD Dog Treats and Hemp Dog Treats?
They are one and the same and can be used interchangeably. CBD dog treats are called by one of the active cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, cannabidiol, or CBD for short.
Hemp dog treats is called by the variety of cannabis plant, that happens to be high in CBD compounds. The hemp plant is also known as “Industrial Hemp”. One will often read that a product is manufactured using hemp oil or industrial hemp. Again, this is one and the same.
In summation, this type of product will either be called by the active compound, CBD; or the variety of plant the active compound comes from, hemp.
To further confuse people, CBD has been cracked down by anyone and everyone; from Facebook advertising to listings on EBay, Amazon, merchant processing, and the list goes on. People that work and manufacture in this industry come up with new acronyms such as “PCR Oil”, just as the general public is starting to educate themselves to the term “CBD”. This is another reason the term “hemp” started being used in place of CBD, to seem more innocuous and fly under the radar. It is a delicate business balancing act, being able to have people find your product and not get shut down.
Be on the look out: “PCR Oil”, or phytocannabinoid rich oil may be the next synonymous term birthed from the controversial “CBD” moniker after businesses start encountering more and more problems; and other creative ways to describe products using CBD or hemp oil. This will continue until the hemp plant is re-classified out of Schedule I drug status, and hopefully lands and is managed under the Department of Agriculture to be listed as an industrial crop like corn or soy. Until then, the public can expect to have confusing labeling and names for the same type of product that change frequently and faster than the general public can keep up with.
