Many owners believe in providing the highest quality treatment options available for their pets, including the best vets, the most nutritious kibble, and the gentlest products for their sensitive little bodies. CBD as a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals has been shown to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and calm anxieties.
HOW DOES CBD INTERACT WITH DOGS?
Just like humans, dogs also have an Endocannabinoid System that helps regulate their body through receptors in the body. These receptors, called CB 1 & CB2, are located throughout the central & peripheral nervous systems. They interact with CBD similarly to a key in a car ignition; turning on and off the car when needed.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF CBD FOR DOGS?
Since CBD helps regulate your pups’ body, it also helps benefit their general health and wellness. Cannabidiol is actually an antioxidant, which may greatly benefit dogs that are experiencing any sort of cancer treatment by helping with pain relief.
This natural cannabinoid also helps soothe stress and anxiety; perfect for chilling your pup out when you leave the house. One of the most common stressors with new puppies is separation anxiety.
Owners also love that CBD helps in relieving pain in their four-legged friends by soothing inflammation. Whether it be hip dysplasia, injury, or just sore muscles from a rough day in the yard, your pup will love life again when they are pain free!
The average dosing has been decided upon 1mg of CBD per 10lbs of a dog’s body weight. If the dose is kept in that range, most dogs do not have any negative side effects to this naturally occurring molecule. We suggest starting low and going slow. Pay attention to how your dog reacts to the first doses, and seek professional help if any adverse effects occur
The next time you are out shopping for your four-legged friend, consider picking up some CBD dog biscuits or dog chews to help their general well-being. CBD is a great daily regimen for those wanting to maintain optimal health in their pets.
