How do cannabinoids work with mammal’s bodies?2020-05-19T16:43:47-05:00

Every Body Has an Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System is an intricate network of receptors throughout the human body that connect to vital physiological processes like appetite, pain, memory, sleep, the immune system, and inflammation.

Cannabinoids are distributed throughout this system and attach to the receptors where they are needed most. They then send regulating signals to tissues and the brain.

The body maintains a balance of cannabinoids and only uses them when they’re needed. Some health challenges and conditions can deplete cannabinoids as they are used by the body to bring them back to health. Multi-Cannabionid oil helps to re-nourish the body’s cannabinoids.

 

 

Is Hemp Extract Legal?2019-07-24T19:38:18-05:00

Yes – The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (aka Farm Bill) was signed into to law on December 20, 2018. It permanently removes hemp and hemp derived products from the Controlled Substances Act. Hemp is now properly classified as an agricultural crop. As such, Pebble is legally sold and shipped to all 50 states. We also ship international where laws permit.

Is Hemp Extract Safe?2019-07-02T15:38:13-05:00

Hemp extract itself is very safe. But it is crucial to choose products that are:

  • Grown in the US
  • Pesticide-free
  • Solvent-free
  • Non-GMO
  • 3rd-party lab verified.

Each and every Pebble product meets that criteria – in fact, we have two rounds of 3rd party lab testing!

Are Hemp Products Safe For Pets?2019-07-02T15:44:37-05:00

Yes! Humans and our furry family members both have cannabinoid receptors in the brain, which are part of the endocannabinoid system throughout our bodies.

In mammals, this system works to control inflammation, pain, motor control, skin condition, appetite, mood, aggression, anxiety, neurological disorders and others.

CBD hemp oil is “non-psychoactive” in all mammals, safe and helps the endocannabinoid system to function more effectively, elevating wellness and quality of life.

Pebble is currently creating a proprietary line of pet products. In the meantime, you can use our infused oil in smaller servings, mixed with food. Always consult your veterinarian prior to giving your pet any new products.

What does Solvent-Free mean?2019-09-23T19:12:58-05:00
A “solvent-free” product is also known as as a “distillate.” The terms refer to the process of distilling to refine a hemp/cannabis concentrate by separating the desired cannabis molecules from any possible contaminants.
The distillation process first includes extracting plant material with a “solvent,” such as Ethanol, CO2, butane or even water in some processes. Next, the extracted material is vaporized through a heating-evaporation process. The resulting vapor travels through a cooling system whereby the contents separate and consolidate into separate containers.
This process can be repeated multiple times and at various temperatures to ensure that the end product contains no solvents, pesticides or residues of any kind while keeping the terpenes and cannabinoids intact in the end product.
Once I’ve Paid, How Long Does it Take Pebble to Ship?2020-06-13T22:16:13-05:00

Pebble ships via U.S. Post Office twice every week – on Tuesdays and on Fridays. The Tuesday cutoff is Monday at 11:00 a.m. central time. The Friday cutoff is Thursday at 11:00 a.m. central time.

Are We Claiming Pebble will Cure Cancer or Treat Your Neurological Disorder?2020-06-13T22:16:44-05:00

No. This information is for self-sufficient adult patients and caregivers. We have provided what the current valid research says about specific cannabinoid isolates and their potential with targeted indications. We are sharing Pebble’s proprietary formula that combines those individually-researched cannabinoids with other proven plant-based anti-inflammatories in specific ratios, using guidelines on dosing and dose scheduling, in a focused effort to create a synergistic effect greater than the most beneficiary isolates. Please review in detail and make your own decision.

Pebble Brazil2020-06-13T22:17:55-05:00

After formal submission in late 2019, the Brazilian government has approved Pebble oil as a prescription medication for chemotherapy and a list of severe neurological disorders. We have established an in-country team and completed a licensing, shipping & distribution agreement for “Pebble-Brazil.” Physicians have begun prescribing Pebble patients.

Pebble has also teamed up with Anny Fischer’s family to help educate across Brazil and beyond. When the new formula ships, you’ll see we nicknamed Pebble’s 6000 mg oil “Anny’s Elixir” because it is the best choice for families dealing with the most severe long-term needs.

Does Pebble test on animals?2020-06-16T14:54:46-05:00

As animal lovers ourselves, this is an important question. Pebble does not test any of its retail products on animals.

As Pebble continues into the pharmaceutical space, certain testing is required by the FDA and other regulatory bodies for the specific formulations that will become pharmaceutical products. We have spent many hours exploring, discussing, and arguing for alternative testing options. Ultimately, we were unable to find an option that allowed us to skip the in-vivo studies. We will minimize our impact in this area and continue to explore alternatives for future use.

Can You Take Too Much Hemp Oil?2019-07-02T16:00:48-05:00

Hemp oil is non-toxic, and no known fatal overdoses have ever been reported. That said, too much of any good thing will make your tummy hurt.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (2011) concluded, ‘no signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of hemp oil to healthy volunteers (Cunha et al., Pharmacology 21:127- 185, 1980), even in large acute doses of 700 mg/day (Consroe et al., Pharmacol, Biochem, Behav. 40:701-708, 1991).’
