CBD For Pets
Recently, there has been a lot of buzz around a product called CBD oil. It’s said to provide relief for everything from seizures to anxiety and inflammation for humans and pets, but how do you know if it’s right for you? We’re here to straighten out any confusion surrounding CBD for pets.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol oil. It is the second most abundant compound in hemp and is naturally derived from the plant. However, it does not produce any psychoactive effects in humans or in animals, unlike the more familiar hemp compound THC.
Why does CBD work?
CBD has been found to provide medicinal effect because of the way the compound works with receptors that already exist in our and our pets’ bodies. These receptors are responsible for regulating neuronal activity and the immune system’s inflammatory response. This means that CBD can be a helpful tool in relieving pain and anxiety for your pet.
Can I give my dog CBD oil for that is meant for humans?
No. Because CBD is derived from the hemp plant, low levels of THC (the psychoactive compound found in cannabis) are still present in the oil. CBD oil that is meant for humans contains THC in an amount that is considered unsafe for dogs or cats to ingest, though it is safe for humans. Some companies also extract CBD with solvents which are unhealthy for pets and can destroy the cannabinoids.
