Therabis and Treatibles
Tell me about the two different Companies:
This week we are actually looking at two companies: Therabis (owned by HempMeds) and Treatibles (legal entity – AD Remedies). Both companies specialize in bringing quality CBD to pet owners who want to help their pets with organic and holistic supplements and treats. Dr. Stephen M. Katz (yes, that actually is his last name) is the founder of Therabis. He says that he started the company to help realize the endocannabinoid system benefits for our furry sidekicks, “I think that the majority of pet owners are by nature very curious about the benefits of hemp right now, especially relative to their pets.” The team over at Treatibles also focuses on bringing the benefits of hemp to pet owners through their use of Broad -Spectrum CBD in their products. They were “founded on the values of compassionate care, quality ingredients, reliable information and integrity.” Although both companies are similar in their passions to create and provide quality hemp products for our pets, Therabis specializes in the form of a granular packet added to your dog’s food daily (they also sell treats). Treatibles, on the other hand, specializes in hemp-based CBD tinctures, dog chews, biscuits, capsules.
As someone who grew up with pets in the house, and as an animal lover myself, I know that owners want nothing short of the best for their pets (Two of my pets are shown above – cute, right??) They want the best toys, the best food, the best treats, and the best training for their furry family members. So why wouldn’t they also want the best CBD?
The Therabis formulation was founded on advice Dr. Katz received from a colleague. He told Dr. Katz that he was having great success by combining chromium and vitamin C. Dr. Katz tried that combination, liked the results he saw and continued to improve upon the formulation for an entire decade by adding ingredients like green-lipped mussel and more. The Therabis formula now includes all-natural hemp, because in his research Dr. Katz found that incorporating hemp with companion ingredients created “a synergistic effect with the cannabinoids in hemp to make them more effective while using less.”
Treatibles uses a blend of naturally occurring CBD, supporting cannabinoids, terpenes, and antioxidants, producing a truly distinct oil. They also ensure that this blend is of the highest quality by testing with a third-party lab to ensure that it is free of mold, pesticides, heavy metals, microbials, herbicides, solvents and bio-contaminants.
At, Treatibles they test all of their batches with a third-party lab to ensure quality. I don’t worry about using their products with my pet. In addition to this, their method of infusion (how they create their blends) is quite impressive. They use a technique where they infuse their hemp oil directly into their carrier oil, which is MCT coconut oil. In this technique, the “infusion of the oils is heated between 140 – 160 degrees to enhance and protect the properties of both pure oils.” This rich infusion requires no further processing, ensures the stability of the cannabinoids, and provides the greatest, most consistent levels of beneficial compounds. Compared to many extraction methods, this infusion method has proven to retain nearly 100% of the profile of all 300+ compounds present in the hemp plant. This creates a true entourage effect, which according to studies conducted in both Brazil and Israel, provides the greatest benefits.
When asked if they test their batches themselves, Therabis responded that “all of our products have been rigorously tested at the Bronx Veterinary Center over the past decade. Additionally, Therabis products must pass any and all FDA requirements regarding stability and contamination.” I don’t know about you, but I would feel good giving my pet something that has been tested at a veterinary center.
Price & Manufacturing Practices
While I am sure that no price would be too much for our beloved pets, finances do play a significant part in our choice of what we can give to our bests friends and furry family members. Both product lines will run between $0.75 – $1.75 per servings. Treatibles are, as their name implies, a soft or hard treat. Therabis is a granulated food additive that is individually measured for consistent serving size.
Therabis products are a mix of several compounds in addition to the full-spectrum cannabinoids, as mentioned above, that were found by Dr. Katz to be beneficial to pets’ health.
Both lines are manufactured from hemp grown and processed here in the United States. Therabis is based in Denver, while Treatibles is manufactured in Petaluma, California.
