Facts to Know About CBD for Pets

Cannabis is increasingly being legalized in many states across the world, both for recreational and medical purposes. It can be produced in liquid or solid form. For some, it is the only option that provides relief for their various ailments that include anxiety, chronic pain and to control seizures. Although research on the use of medicinal cannabis on pets is limited and the industry is largely unregulated, more owners and medical personnel are recommending CBD for pets for their ailments.  


What is CBD? 

This is one of the active compound derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant. CBD oil used by humans and pets to relieve pain comes from this CBD substance. The most well- known compound from this plant is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is psychoactive, and is the one that gets you “high”. CBD for pets does not contain this compound and so does not make the animal “high”.   


Does It Work? 

There are questions around whether CBD for pets stops pain, or whether it makes the animals not to care. What is known is that when pets such as dogs and cats are given CBD when they are in pain, are sore, stressed, or display signs of anxiety, they seem to calm down and are less reactive to certain things. They are known to enjoy the same goodness of CBD that humans do. Some studies suggest that when the right dose of CBD is given to dogs, it can kill cancer cells, but more research is needed in this area.  


Although CBD for pets is not psychoactive, it has the same medical benefits as THC. Be reassured as you take your pet to the vet as it will receive the therapeutic benefits of the treatment. It is not known what risks to reactions are present, but the pets that have been given CBD oil seem to be fine.  


When giving CBD to pets, ensure that you use pet-specific products so that you get the concentrations right. These may be in the form of tasty treats for pets which have CBD and animal-approved flavours in them, or use of a tincture with droppers that are easy to fill in a pill pouch. Never give a pet anything that contains THC as this will disorient them, apart from being toxic to their system.  


Safety Measures 

Ge your CBD oil for your pets from reputable manufacturers and suppliers. They will have animal doses in the right amounts and concentrations. Wrong measurements could turn your pet psychoactive, which is bad for them and you. Better still, get your CBD for pets from suppliers who love animals. Their products will be tailored for the size and needs of your pets. This is because, just as in humans, CBD intake varies depending on the animal’s species, shape and size. 


Final Thoughts 

When your pet is in chronic pain or is anxious, before giving it any CBD oil, first consult your veterinarian. You may then try CBD for pets in small doses first, as you study the pet’s reaction to the medication as you monitor its progress. Suggestions indicate that the treatment process should be continued for at least two weeks. The dose should be gradually increased if desired results are not seen during that time. Show your pets that you love and care for them by taking care of them when they are uncomfortable and in pain.
