Who would’ve thought CBD has the same effects and benefits for animals as it does for humans… let alone our pets (Dogs and Cats mainly) that we love and care for so much. This is yet another indication that we have barely scratched the surface as far as discovering the full potential of CBD.
As it turns out all mammals have an Endocannabinoid System, hence the effectiveness from that very interaction with CBD that promotes cardiovascular function, maintains healthy joints (pain-free) and treats several conditions such as Stress and Anxiety that are linked to your Pets’ Neurological Health and emotional behavior.
As our pets grow older, they begin to suffer mainly from joint pains (Arthritis). CBD supports joint vitality but it doesn’t stop there. In addition it helps maintain a healthy skin and generally relaxes while restoring balance within internal organs (Homeostasis). This is due to important nutrients that a full spectrum CBD Oil contain. Among those Nutrients you can find Calcium, Potassium, Vitamins (A, B, C, E) and Phosphorus.
Although clinical studies are at their infancy when it comes to administering CBD for animals, preliminary conclusions constitute a relief to low level pain stimuli such as Arthritis, certain Anxieties, Cancer and even Seizures. On June, 2019, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) published POSITIVE clinical trial Results on Epileptic dogs that were administered with CBD oil in addition to conventional seizure medication. The dogs who participated in this trial had significantly fewer seizures than those that received only seizure medication and /or a placebo.
Excellent results were also achieved in the ability to stimulate Appetite, assist on Digestion, reduce Inflammation and even treat Nausea. Many Veterinarians already prescribe different forms of CBD as a natural pain management assistant since it has such a great margin of safety sticker attached to it.
Before administering any product containing CBD, it is recommended to consult with your Veterinarian about the benefits and restrictions (such as the recommended dosage). Do make sure to administer gradually, monitor closely during the first few days and pick the best form of intake, whether it is oil drops administered under the tongue or in their meal and /or a treat.
FYI, all recommended products on this website contain either very low THC levels (>3%) or none at all.
