Frequently Asked Questions
How do the Pet Hemp Oil drops work?
Your pet, like any living being, has specific cannabinoid receptors in their brain and central nervous systems that make up what we call the “endocannabinoid system” where the Cannabinoids(CBD products) latch on and support your pets endocannabinoid system. The ways of usage is either orally or topically.
How long does it take for Healthy Roots Paws to work?
It can take 20 minutes to an hour depending on the size of your pet. It is always a good idea when giving CBD to your dog to start off with a small serving and work your way up to a higher serving slowly. Individual results may vary.
