CBD for Pets
Our fur babies are a part of the family and we treat them as such. We feed them the best food, provide them with all the toys, and make sure to give them plenty of cuddles. So, when they are hurting, we want to do everything in our power to make the pain go away.
Animals, like humans, have an endocannabinoid system that is capable of interacting with the chemical compounds found in cannabinoids like CBD and THC. The same ailments we treat in humans, such as anxiety, inflammation and seizures, can be treated in animals, too!
While there have only been a limited number of studies done on animals (four, from what we could find!), there are things we know for sure!
CBD is non-psychoactive
Unlike THC, CBD won’t make your pet feel high. That being said, if your pet is new to CBD, it’s still best to start with a low dose since CBD has the potential to make your fur baby drowsy. We recommend starting with .5ml per 10 lbs of body weight.
CBD can treat seizures and epilepsy
It’s estimated that up to 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. Most dogs with seizures are put on drugs such as phenobarbital and potassium bromide. While they may help control the seizures, they can be extremely harmful to your dog’s liver and other organs. And the drugs don’t work in all cases.
CBD has been shown to work well in drug-resistant epilepsy. In one study, 7 of 8 patients with epilepsy that was resistant to drugs saw a definite improvement within 4 to 5 months of taking CBD.
And a survey of children with treatment-resistant epilepsy found that 84% of the children taking CBD had a reduction in the frequency of seizure
CBD relieves pain
Whether you’re a human or animal, pain is pain. CBD work so well for pain management that scientists are considering it as a new class of drug for the treatment of chronic pain. Studies show CBD to be very effective for:
- Decreasing pain (including neuropathy and nerve-related pain)
- Decreasing the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress (which causes degeneration and premature aging)
- Decreasing inflammation in acute pancreatitis
- Reducing intestinal inflammation (associated with irritable bowel disease)
CBD increases hunger
If you have trouble getting your pet to eat, CBD may help. The National Cancer Institute reports that CBD increases appetite and carries this extra benefit, in addition to controlling cancer.
In animal studies, CBD has also been shown to help with vomiting and nausea, even when they’re the result of toxins and drugs.
