Expanded FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
What is a COA?
COA stands for “certificate of analysis,” or in other words, a COA is a report which demonstrates what is in each product and that our products are free from harmful by-products and contaminants. All of our products will have a COA available to you to show what precisely is in the tincture. Our COA will show a cannabinoid and terpene profile and ensure that no pollutants, pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, microbials, or mycotoxins are present in any of our products.
What does USDA Certified Organic mean?
As per USDA.GOV, “Organic is a labeling term found on products that have been produced using cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that support the cycling of on-farm resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. The National Organic Program – part of USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service – enforces the organic regulations, ensuring the integrity of the USDA Organic Seal. In order to make an organic claim or use the USDA Organic Seal, the final product must follow strict production, handling and labeling standards and go through the organic certification process. The standards address a variety of factors such as soil quality, animal raising practices, and pest and weed control. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.”
Has any Genie's Therapeutics' products been approved by the FDA(Food and Drug Administration)?
The FDA does not regulate our products. Currently, there is only one FDA-controlled cannabinoid medication for use in humans. The science and regulations behind cannabinoids are ever-changing. As we grow our knowledge in cannabinoid science across our great country, we will see more and more advancements in the laws. Even though the FDA does not regulate us. We are Certified Organic by USDA to produce a clean product.

About a CBD product, hemp is one of two plants from which we can obtain the CBD molecule. CBD isolates are individual molecules that have been extracted from a hemp or cannabis plant for use in tinctures, edibles, and lotions.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both plants of the cannabis genus. Both plants contain the beneficial Phytocannabinoids. The big difference, three letters THC. Hemp is a product that is used for many purposes, including fiber, oils, and, you guessed it, CBD tinctures. For hemp to stay legal for farmers to cultivate, its raw state must contain no greater than 0.3%THC. Growing it below this level allows us to have legal CBD tinctures in a mostly anti-marijuana country. Now marijuana, on the other hand, contains more than 0.3% THC and is illegal in many states.

Will my dog become addicted to cannabinoids?
The short answer is no. The most cannabinoids known are CBD and THC. THC alone can become habit-forming in humans; however, when combined with other cannabinoids, THC loses a lot of its habit-forming nature. A little-known fact, CBD is known to treat addictions in humans. There should be no addictive qualities in a CBD-based tincture.
Why won’t my veterinarian talk to me about Genie's Therapeutics' Hemp Signature Blend?
It is not uncommon for owners to report that their veterinarian is avoiding the conversation about hemp. Please understand that the majority of veterinarians would love to open this line of communication with you. Still, unfortunately, veterinarians are advised by the veterinary medical board not to discuss hemp or recommend any hemp products. Most cannabis products are not FDA approved and because they are a medical doctor, they are not at liberty to discuss this with you. We hope that we can open those lines of communication in the near future and have hemp medicine be an integral part of veterinary medicine. Until then, please ask your veterinarian to notate on your canines’ medical records that they are using hemp.
Should I tell my veterinarian about my dog taking Genie's Therapeutics' Signature Hemp Blend?
We at Genies Therapeutics passionately believe that your veterinarian should be a part of your canine’s well-being. We encourage you to reach out to your veterinarian and tell them that your dog is taking our product. This therapy should be a part of the whole wellness picture that you have for your companion. Some medications can be altered using cannabis, so informing your veterinarian about your decision is essential.

Liver enzymes are known to become elevated after initiating hemp. This effect has been documented in almost every species and has an unknown significance. Science is working hard to pinpoint the cause, but it is incidental and not harmful. We do recommend that your canine gets regular blood screening during treatment at your veterinarians’ recommendation.

If you have given your dog more than the recommended dose of our tincture, it is improbable that they would have any symptoms that are not self-limiting. We do recommend you call animal poison control in the event of an overdose.

Once further research exists, Genie has no problem sharing his magic with other animals. Our Advanced Dosing and Concierge Support is based on the most recent research on canines.
Is weight the only consideration when it comes to dosing?
Weight is an essential consideration in determining a starting point for the target dose; however, it should not be the sole influencer for the right amount. Just like in people, every dog is different in how they process a substance. Although cannabis products are deemed relatively safe and free from direct side effects, we like to advise a low and slow approach. This low and slow approach helps your canine’s body adjust to all the good stuff it receives. Occasionally, they may experience an upset GI if they are sensitive, so this approach allows us to acclimate slowly.
Can Genie’s Therapeutics be administered directly with the pipette?
Yes, however, it is essential to note that whenever you use the pipette as a direct transfer of the tincture to the canine’s mouth, you should be cautious not to make direct contact with the mouth. As with humans, our canine’s mouths are full of bacteria. We should avoid contamination of the pipette. If you are concerned that some saliva has gotten in your pipette, please rinse well with warm water and squeeze the bulb on the pipette several times to dry before putting back the tincture vial.
