While Stirling formulates their pet oil with a lower dosage than their human CBD products, it’s still a robust and potent product, with an estimated 8.3mg of CBD in every 1ml dropper. This gives a 30 ml bottle a price per milligram of CBD of 16 cents—which, while competitive, is not the best we’ve seen.
Part of the reason for this oil’s slightly higher price point is Stirling’s commitment to only using hemp from sustainable, totally organic farms, with this batch being made from organic Kentucky-raised hemp. A look at the oil’s independent lab tests shows the results of this high-quality cultivation, with an extraction that’s almost entirely CBD and completely THC free. Testing does also show a trace amount of CBD-V, which is a structurally similar cannabinoid that’s thought to offer highly similar benefits.
Stirling chooses an MCT oil to carry their extract, which they infuse with a natural bacon essential oil flavoring. Reading the considerable number of reviews for this product, it’s clear that this small touch greatly improves taste pups, making them more likely to create positive associations with their CBD treatment.
As for MCT oil, we consider it a superior CBD delivery vehicle due to the fact that it’s water-soluble, meaning that it easily blends with food, as well as being rich in medium-chain fatty acids, which help speed up CBD’s digestion (in scientific terms, it’s a highly bioavailable oil).
