What is CBD ?

Cannabidiol is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis—also known as CBD.  It that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psycho activity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis,  spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria (low moods).  (Source:

​The diagram below illustrates the two type of receptors, CB1 and CB2.  CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system.  CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral nervous system which includes all the nerves that go from the skin, muscle, and organs to the spinal cord and eventually the brain.

Where does OUR Cannabidiol (CBD) come from?

​Industrial Hemp sourced from Europe

What is hemp ?

Hemp is derived from the Cannabis plant.  Yes that is true.  However it is not the same Cannabis plant that     makes marijuana.    Cannabis is one of the oldest domesticated plants in our history which was grown for industrial and medical use.   Early civilization used the tall sturdy plant to make food, oil, and textiles like ropes and fabric.  Eventually, they cross-bred this plant with similar characteristics and created hemp.  Some plants used for cross breeding had psychoactive properties which were used for medicine.  Other plants that did not were used for non medical purposes.  This eventually  created two different types of Cannabis plants known as Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa.

Veterinarians and CBD?

​It's clear that veterinarians need to be educated on the medicinal properties that cannabis and CBD can potentially provide to animals, but we need more research on the subject, too. While many dog owners attest that their furry friends' conditions were improved with CBD treatment, anyone considering treating their pet with cannabinoids should do so under the guidance of a knowledgeable veterinarian who can make informed yet cautious recommendations that are both safe and beneficial to the pet. These types of medicines are still in their infancy and we have a lot more to learn about their efficacy and risks. However, it’s truly exciting to witness a frontier of therapeutic options possibly open up that can improve our beloved pets' quality of life. (Source )

Will King Kalm CBD™ heal my dog ?

The FDA does not allow for any company, including us, to make claims about curing diseases or any other medical condition.  There is an abundant amount of information and studies online and we suggest that you do your own research online.  Also, you can try the product in your home and see results for yourself.  

How much do I give my pet ?

Each mammal has it's own unique Endocannabinoid System so unfortunately there isn't a "one dose fits all" prescription.  In order to asses your animals tolerance and dosing schedule, it is recommended to demonstrate what is known as a 'loading phase.' What this means is that every animal not only has a range for dosing determined by weight, but to be more specific and particular with your application of CBD you most also asses saturation of the CBD receptors in your particular animal. 

In order to get the best results from administration of CBD you will want to administer a 'daily dose' according to the weight parameters dictated on the product label; you will do this for a minimum of 10 days - during that time keep notes of any and all changes in your animals symptoms. 

After this period of time you will want to pay extra close attention to the symptoms you typically see in your animal and continue to take note of their occurrence; both frequency and severity. Since the half life of cannabidiol is on average around 3-5 days, you will want to re-administer the recommended dosage in and around that window. Some animals have faster metabolisms than others, and may need to be dosed more often to keep symptoms at bay, and most importantly to allow the immune system to respond and modulate accordingly.
