Medterra’s oil is a CBD isolate, which means that it contains only CBD. A look at the brand’s certificates of analysis shows this to be the case, with other cannabinoids below trace levels.
Another important aspect of their independent lab results to pick out is that Medterra’s oils are completely free of THC, which is great news for those looking for the purest CBD products around. While any cannabis product with THC levels under 0.3% is both federally legal and considered safe for pets, producers able to completely remove the psychoactive compound provide the ultimate assurance for cautious owners.
In addition to their CBD extract, Medterra infuses flavorings into their oil to help improve palatability for picky pups. You’ll likely already have a good idea whether you pooch might have issues swallowing a few drops of oil or having it dropped on their favorite food—but the fact that hemp’s slightly bitter flavor can be offputting to some makes these flavored options a great bonus. Both the chicken and beef flavorings use natural, organic flavor extracts.
Also offsetting the bitterness of hemp is an Organic Medium-Chain Triglyceride (MCT) carrier oil, which Medterra sources from coconuts. While the richness of MCT oil does come with a slight risk of upsetting the stomach of highly sensitive dogs, we like this choice of carrier oil for its added flavor and high concentration of fatty acids, which promotes fast absorption of the CBD.
At between 5 and 13 cents per milligram of CBD depending on which concentration you buy, all of Medterra’s offer great value for money, sitting right in the middle of the pack for this metric.
