Did you know that if your dog, cat, or other pet is struggling with chronic problems, they might find CBD to be incredibly beneficial? Did you know that CBD is a potent antioxidant that’s shown to be more powerful than vitamins C and E? It’s true! Most CBD oil for dogs and other pets is derived from hemp oil, so it contains negligible amounts of THC. Because of this, all 50 states have approved the use of hemp-based CBD for human and animal products.
One thing to keep in mind: CBD is the same for humans and dogs. Meaning, CBD that’s safe for humans is also safe for dogs! It’s the same thing! The biggest difference with dog-specific CBD products is that they are often shaped and flavored as dog treats. But we’ll let you in on a little secret, its cheaper and more effective to purchase a bottle of full spectrum CBD tinctures and apply a few drops onto your dogs favorite treats. Chances are you already have a box of doggie treats around, just add a few drops of organic full spectrum tincture and your dog will begin feeling better within 90 minutes.
Owners often give their dog CBD for reasons that include:
- Pain & Inflammation
- Seizures & Epilepsy (up to 5% of dogs struggle with seizures!)
- Old age/general wellness
- Digestive health & bowel disease gastrointestinal issue
- Heart health
- Joints & mobility
- Appetite and nausea
- For senior dogs, CBD protects the brain from cell death caused by toxins
Will it get your dog high?
No! CBD will not get your dog high, assuming it is hemp derived (meaning it contains less than 0.3% THC in it). Reputable companies are diligently consistent when it comes to keeping their products within this important threshold. No one wants to experience the uncomfortable hours waiting for your pet to come down from THC!
Are there any risks to my pet?
Absolutely not. Pets have endocannabinoid systems just like humans do, so CBD works for them the same way it works for you. Dogs have been known to experience problems with THC overdoses, which is why it’s so important to ensure the CBD you administer to your pet is organic and hemp derived.
How do I administer?
The most common method would be oral ingestion. You can buy the canine CBD dog treats if you like, but we suggest dropping a tincture on your pets food, or right into their mouth – the choice is totally up to you. A salve isn’t really going to work unless you shave their fur!
Watch out for:
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, not all CBD oils are the same! Watch out for non-organic CBD products and those that don’t provide test results. Your pet deserves a 100% organic, full-spectrum CBD oil that contains cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids – with the test results to prove it! We hope you give your pet the opportunity to experience true, natural relief.
