The term “Made from Free-Range Chicken” has been used extensively to sell products over the years and can be seen on a myriad of products out there, but there is still an ongoing controversy about the appropriate classification for free-range chickens. The USDA classifies free-range chickens as chickens that are “allowed access to the outside”, but that definition could mean 10-minute access or 12-hour access. All poultry animals need some level of protection from the elements and predators and can be raised in large bans or other related structures, but free-range chickens should – ideally – have continuous access to an outdoor environment for more than 51 percent of their lives, and be certified organic – raised with a GM-free diet and without routine antibiotic medications.
Free-range and organic chickens offer a range of benefits not found in conventionally-raised chickens including a Higher Protein Content, less cholesterol, less saturated fat, more vitamin A, E, beta-carotene, and omega-3. Because free-range chickens eat a higher quality and natural diet, they are less susceptible to hormone disruption and diseases commonly found in conventionally-raised chickens. Additionally, most people report that free-range chickens taste better than their conventional counterparts due to the healthier lifestyle they live.
We use free-range and certified-organic chickens in our products because we believe in delivering the best possible effects and maximizing the quality of health of your pets. We also use free-range chickens because the negative properties associated with conventionally-raised chickens can act to counteract the effects of CBD.
