Natural, High Quality CBD For My Pets and Me

Why wouldn’t you want to treat your pets as well as you treat yourself? At Fully Activated, we create yummy pet treats and tinctures for our furry friends and use the same standards as we do for our human products. This means that Buca Biscuits, our CBD dog treats, are organic & GMO-free, and each biscuit contains exactly the amount of CBD as stated.
Precision and quality control is very important to us. We only use the best ingredients from organic sources, and we create everything in small batches – each time. Other products may not be clear on where they are coming from or how they’re being made, the health of our pets and our customers is of utmost importance to us. Many real life experiences and several studies have proven that animals (most notably, dogs) can potentially experience similar benefits from CBD that humans feel.
Research on pets and the use of CBD is still new, but the evidence is extremely positive so far. As Gary Richter, DVM, says, “animals can benefit…for many of the same reasons it helps people – for pain, seizure control, gastrointestinal disorders, anxiety-related issues.”
We use CBD as a preventative daily treatment and on specific ailments for our petts and have for more than a decade. Since our pets have endocannabinoid systems, just like we do, it only makes sense.

CBD Success Stories

We created this company to offer tools to help support your health and, without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today.  Our passion for creating high quality CBD products is fed by the stories and feedback we’ve received from our customers over the years.  We’ve witnessed life-changing stories about decreased epileptic episodes and improvements with pet separation anxiety.  Many have reported quick pain relief from our Full Spectrum CBD salve and long lasting migraine reduction from our CBD Isolate, among a variety of other ailments supported by our pure CBD and full spectrum CBD tinctures and vape juice.  We are always listening and love supporting our clients with all the information needed to feel comfortable using any of our products.  
We can talk to you all day about our products and how they may be beneficial to your wellbeing, but we would rather let you read these success stories for yourself.
On CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum CBD Salve, & Full Spectrum Lip & Body Balm for Sleep, Inflammation, & Sore Muscles:

“I recently discovered this company and I am so glad I did! I’ve had previous experience using some high CBD cannabis, but I always wanted to try the isolated form without any psychoactive effects. My main reasons for using CBD are to help with sleep issues and also decrease inflammation in my muscles and joints from following a pretty demanding exercise routine.
I tried their CBD Isolate both in the “slab” form and pure powdered crystal form, as well as the Full Spectrum Salve (this stuff is amazing!) and their Full Spectrum CBD Lip & Body Balm.
Both the “slab” form and powdered CBD isolate have completely resolved my sleep issues. They both provide a very nice calming effect that relaxes all the muscles and mind. There are some scientific studies that suggest CBD helps lengthen deep sleep and I definitely notice a huge difference in my sleep lately. It’s been years since I’ve slept well consistently, and I am incredibly grateful to have finally found something that works without the negative side effects that come with prescription sleep medications. Even when I take breaks some nights, I am still sleeping well. Just an FYI, the “slab” form of the CBD isolate is best used if you plan on vaporizing and inhaling. I would make sure you have a milligram scale so you can accurately measure out an appropriate amount, because you don’t need to use a lot! The most efficient way for the body to absorb CBD is through vaporization. The second best way to take CBD is via sublingual administration (under the tongue). I used the CBD isolate powder to make my own tincture by mixing it with some MCT oil.
The Lip & Body Balm and the Fully Spectrum Salve are both very well made topical products. I have been doing a lot of long distance running this summer. When I get sore muscles and knees after my long runs I spread them around my knees and on my calf and thigh muscles. I noticed that there was a definite decrease in muscle and knee soreness after using these and I felt stronger when I was running after using them because of the quicker recovery time. My training peaked at a few 18 mile runs, which really takes its toll on the body and these products helped immensely. The Full Spectrum Salve has a more creamy texture that spreads on easily, while the Lip & Body Balm is a little thicker in an easy to carry stick form, that’s great for taking with you when you’re on the go. They both have pleasant, but not overpowering calendula smell.
Overall, Fully Activated has the best prices around without sacrificing quality. Everything is well packaged and their balms and salves have excellent natural ingredients. If you’ve never tried their products or our new to CBD, definitely give them a try!” – J.D. (Google Reviews)

On Full Spectrum CBD Tincture & Full Spectrum Salve for Chronic Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia:
“I purchased the starter kit I believe Monday night, and it arrived Saturday morning. Keep in mind I’m 1,700 miles away give or take, so that was great in itself. Before it arrived, I was chatting with the page to learn more, and they are so informative and helpful. I purchased upon recommendation from someone my husband knows to help with my Trigeminal Neuralgia. I just used the Full Spectrum Tincture for the first time, so I will have to update once I see results. I have very high hopes for this! If you’re in the market for some great hemp product, definitely try Fully Activated because I’ve had such an excellent experience so far. I’ll put some photos in the comments of the starter kit because it’s so nice to look at, too.
Update 9/30/2017: So it’s several hours later on the day I received the products and I already have seen differences! I also have migraines (yep, I can’t just have one crappy thing in my face lol) and I rub the salve on the area that hurts and within minutes it’s back to normal!!! I also haven’t had a true flare up of my Trigeminal Neuralgia since I used the tincture either. I have TN 1 and 2, with mainly tension in my jaw area. I use the salve on that as well and it’s relieving so much tension and the burning pain!!!! My life is already changing because of these products. If you don’t know what TN is, it’s a neuropathic disorder of the fifth cranial nerve. It causes excruciating shocking and stabbing facial pain sometimes when touched, other times just randomly. This has effected every area of my life, and I was recently ruled out for a corrective surgery. The pharmaceuticals aren’t working. But this is! I’m finally finding some relief from this pain!!! I can’t recommend these products enough and it’s only day one.
Update 10/02/2017: The salve has definitely been a lifesaver when I feel oncoming pain because for me it stops it dead in its tracks. I’ll be honest, every once in a while I just go “holy crap…I don’t hurt.” It’s so so strange because I’ve had chronic head pain for as long as I can remember, and adding the TN starting back in May. My grandma also has generalized chronic pain and used salve on one shoulder yesterday and was extremely impressed and will likely be getting her own soon. I’ve been using the full spectrum tincture more and it seems to be preventing flare ups a lot. It’s like the tincture and salve are working as a team for me. The tincture tries to prevent everything, and then the salve is there just in case I feel a flare up starting. Really, this stuff is INCREDIBLE. I am beyond impressed.”-M.G.  (Facebook Reviews)

Our Founder’s Fully Activated CBD Story

Welcome to Fully Activated!
We’re so glad you’re here and that you’ve chosen to trust us with your various CBD needs!  We want to share our personal story of our experience with CBD, how Fully Activated came to be, and why we believe our products are unmatched.
Our founder, Nick, has experienced chronic pain most of his life.  As he jumped from medical professional to medical professional searching for a solution to his pain, he was frequently misdiagnosed and found himself looking for something more.
After deciding to take his health into his own hands, he found CBD…
At the time, he was helping his mother with her dog rescues and noticed that several of these foster animals also had issues from skin infections to joint problems and emotional stress.  He began to take CBD for his own needs and started their foster pets on a regular regiment.  He quickly saw improvements in his own pain, as well as, the quality of life and improved conditions for their beloved furry friends. 
One of the largest issues he encountered was the consistency and quality of the CBD he found.  Motivated by his new found pain-remedy, he chose to move to Colorado to search for a solution & eventually grow his own high-quality CBD hemp plants and create his own products.
 
“I couldn’t accept how the majority of CBD companies were treating people and more importantly our pets!  I saw too many people and too many animals in situations where they needed love, genuine help and compassion… but instead we were being treated as sources of income by our doctors and vets.” – Nick, Fully Activated
 
After moving to Colorado, he realized how hard it was to truly find consistent, high-quality CBD hemp plants.  But, it didn’t take long for him to connect with his hemp-growing counterpart!  With a chemist background and a love for genetics, Nick knew this man was his chance to create something great to share with the world.  His partner offered a hemp farm approved by the state of Colorado and the magic began! 
As the farm grew, the two tested the CBD content of the plants and began crossbreeding the highest concentration plants with other high concentration plants to produce giant outdoor hemp plants with high volumes of CBD.  This genetic crossing has created the ‘proprietary blend’ of high-quality CBD that Fully Activated uses today!  While the evolution of these plants never stops, only the best strains with less than .3% THC are used.  The Colorado Department of Agriculture visits the farm regularly to test the plants, and they consistently pass with flying colors.  Typically, if the crop exceeds the <.3% THC then it is condemned and, sometimes, even burned to prevent distribution.  However, due to careful and attentive crossbreeding, the farm has never had to waste a crop! 
Once the hemp plants are mature, they are taken to processing and the products are all created within 20 miles of the farm.  The naturally grown, locally sourced hemp is used to create tinctures, salves, isolate, vape juice, dog treats, capsules, body balms, and more.  We’ve heard great feedback from happy customers and would love to give you the chance to experience a higher quality of life.  We’re happy to discuss our various products and answer any questions you may have regarding CBD and Fully Activated. 
 
Please reach out to us with specific questions or concerns.  We’d love to hear from you!

who we are

 Heres a little about who we are and why sharing plant medicine knowledge is so important to us. Big thanks to all who take a few minutes to read our little blog, hopefully you’ll take something away from it!
We’ll start with who we are:
After years of misdiagnoses and being over prescribed pharmaceuticals for phantom conditions, Nick decided to take control of his own health. Combining a gluten free diet with little to no processed sugars, replacing pharmaceuticals with plant medicine and regular physical activity, Nick was able to redirect his health and regain his quality of life.
With an engineering background it only made sense that he would start production of his own products to ensure quality, purity and cleanliness for his family, friends and himself. Shortly after Fully Activated began, Courtney, a long time friend from a similar industry joined Nick in Colorado to lend her skills and knowledge to the cause and the company. It didn’t take long before both Nick and Courtney realized they had found a true calling, not only in life, also in love.
 Now, we are a husband and wife team that together have almost 30 years experience in the marijuana industry ranging from cultivation to genetic development. We’ve merged our ideas of plant medicine and a preventative lifestyle to offer products that can be utilized daily by anyone in need, anywhere.
