We have all heard that CBD oil can work wonders for humans on things like pain, anxiety, cancer, seizures, and a long list of other conditions.  It has been scientifically proven to help people with many different conditions get back to a productive life without the harmful side effects often associated with prescription medications.  CBD also makes for a great option when considering which treatment to use for your pet’s medical conditions as well.

What is CBD?

Cannabis oil is a liquid derived from the marijuana or hemp plant.  The flower contains trichomes the glands containing the essential oils.  The marijuana plant contains eighty different cannabinoids, including THC which is responsible for the high feeling people usually get when smoking or eating marijuana.  It also contains CBD which does NOT produce the high feeling and is strictly a medicinal component of the plant.  CBD is derived from hemp and contains little to no THC.

It is really not all that complicated once you see the results you or your pet can achieve by using CBD oil.  It can improve your quality of life without the damaging effects that you often get with prescription medications and sometimes even over the counter medications.  It is often just misunderstood, a lot more research has been done lately and its proven to be safe and very effective.  I personally use CBD oil, it has helped me with my anxiety and Crohn’s disease tremendously.  It has overall improved my quality of life and I don’t even have to use any other medication for my pain.

Is it safe?

Depending on the nature of the product, it should have no psychoactive effect.  Reputable manufacturers of CBD use agricultural or medicinal hemp which will contain little to no THC, so you can rest assured that your furry friend is not getting fried off of the oil.  While they won’t be intoxicated it does have a natural, calming effect you might experience upon using or administering to your animal.

It is safe for humans as there are virtually no side effects associated with using CBD oil, it’s natural and effective.  The same endocannabinoid system we have in our bodies also exist in all mammals, birds, reptiles and even fish.  The results will naturally vary from person to person, but most people have had great success with using CBD oil.  Despite what some people may say, it has been extensively researched and is proven to be safe and effective.

It is also important to note that CBD oil is highly recommended by professionals and veterinarians in treating a variety of common issues found in our animals.  If your dog has cancer, tremors, anxiety, or pain it might be worth trying as an alternate solution to the problem, it might give them much relief.

Benefits of CBD

It can be used to treat the following issues:

  • seizures or tremors

  • stress

  • anxiety

  • arthritis

  • pain

  • inflammation

  • gastrointestinal issues

  • cancer

  • allergies

  • skin problems

  • help increase appetite

  • helps boost the immune system

Plus many more as this is not an exhausted list.  Research shows that CBD oil can stop cancer cells from growing and has an anti-tumor effect. More and more pet owners and holistic vets are becoming drawn to the benefits of this herb as it is diverse and animals don’t seem to build up a tolerance to it.

There are many more benefits for humans using CBD, and given the similarity of dogs receptors to ours it only makes sense that CBD would also effectively treat a number of conditions in our animals as well.

Risks

Life-threatening, serious risks for pets using hemp oil is extremely rare.  However, with any medication, there is going to be some sort of risk involved, minimal to none with hemp oil.  Before starting your pet on anything new I always recommend having a consult with your veterinarian first.  A simple phone call would work just to be safe.

It’s always important to keep all products secure and out of reach of children or animals to reduce any risk.  CBD oil is safe for your pet however marijuana is NOT because of the high levels of THC.  Most of the risk comes from irresponsible pet owners allowing their dog access to edibles or not being properly educated on the harmful effects recreational or medicinal marijuana can have on a pet.

Since CBD contains little to no THC the risk of overdose is not likely and generally not a concern.

Dosage

CBD Hemp oil is generally administered orally to dogs.  It can be used in conjunction with your pet’s current treatment without causing any complications.  Also, there are virtually no known interactions that you should be concerned about.  However, I do recommend talking to your veterinarian first.

Dosing is not dependent exclusively on weight, but other factors such as immunity and tolerance go into play.  You will want to start off with the lowest dose possible and then gradually increase until you achieve the results you are looking for.  You could also place the oil on their skin to aid in the healing.

Suggested Use:  Place a small amount on a cotton ball and rub onto the affected area or place drops on or under the tongue for consumption.-CBD BIOPETCARE

Legality

Hemp CBD oil is different from marijuana and regular CBD oil and is legal in all 50 states.
