How CBD Can Help Your Dog

The benefits of CBD for people are widely advertised, but what you may not know is that it’s also incredibly useful for your canine friend too. Today, we’re going to learn more about CBD and exactly how it can help your dog!

What’s CBD?

Just in case you didn’t know, CBD is short for cannabidiol and it comes from the buds and flowers of the cannabis plant. Before you panic, there’s no ‘high’ associated with CBD because there’s no THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

CBD for Dogs

You might have seen marijuana and hemp, and these both contain THC. While hemp only contains around 0.3% THC and is therefore used in similar products to CBD, marijuana can contain around 30% THC. Currently, hemp-derived oil is legal across all states while marijuana-derived CBD oil is mostly illegal.

Benefits of CBD for Your Dog

  • Prevent Seizures – Firstly, the anticonvulsant properties of CBD mean that tremors, tics, seizures, and spasms are all controlled. If your dog struggles with these problems, this is a fantastic solution.
  • Control Pain – As we know for humans, CBD is also considered a strong painkiller. In truth, CBD can help with all sorts of health problems.
  • Help Nausea – Some dogs struggle with vomiting and nausea, and a growing number of owners are deploying CBD since it is antiemetic. Simultaneously, this will also boost the appetite of your pet. 
  • Encourage Homeostasis – For some vets, they have recommended CBD to treat some illnesses while also encouraging positive health. When used as a regular supplement, some owners say that the overall wellbeing of their dog improves.
  • Reduce Inflammation – Again, this is another reason so many people use CBD. Whether it’s the aches and pains of daily life or a particular health condition, CBD is known to reduce inflammation in your dog just as well as yourself.
  • Limit Stress and Anxiety – Thankfully, we now have access to several studies that have shown a link between CBD and various mental conditions. Sadly, dogs are prone to stress, anxiety, and they can even show signs of certain phobias. With regular CBD, the dog gets the help they need.
  • Slow Tumor Growth – In rats, there’s evidence that CBD provides protection against colon cancer. Not only does it slow the growth of existing tumors, it also prevents the spreading of other tumors. There’s a chance that it will do the same in our doggy friends.

Tips for Buying CBD Products

To finish this short guide, we want to provide advice for those considering CBD products for their dog. With this in mind, we’ve compiled some top tips below!

  • Don’t buy a poorer product just to save a little money. Generally speaking, the purer and higher quality products come with a more expensive price tag. Sadly, cheaper products have been known to contain additives such as pesticides, heavy metals, and herbicides. 
  • It’s hard to administer CBD to a dog, so we recommend buying a tincture or oil. Additionally, this will allow you to control exactly how much CBD you provide each time. 
  • If possible, choose an organic product; this is the best way to ensure that it’s free from fungicides, pesticides, and solvents. 
  • Assess the manufacturer’s certificate which explains the CBD content in the product. Some products advertised as special CBD oils will actually only contain a tiny percentage of CBD. Elsewhere, make sure it has little or no THC. 

CBD can certainly help your dog, and we hope this guide has helped you to get started today!

CBD Oils For Animals

cbd oil for farm animalsHey, y’all! Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather, it’s such a beautiful time of year to watch the leaves change color, prepare for the holidays, and watch some football. I wanted to get this article out there to see if any of you had some feedback on this. We have been wanting to try CBD oils with some of our horses and dogs for various ailments. We have enough old timers on the property that we think they could all benefit from some anti-inflammatory agents. I’ve been reading some amazing things about people and CBD oils, dogs and CBD oils, but I haven’t found anything of real value about CBD and horses. My initial thought is that it would be too expensive to use CBD oils as an anti-inflammatory for a horse, but I am curious if anyone has tried it and if they have noticed any obvious improvements in the horse. One of our older stallions just doesn’t move around the property as he used too, and we think there may be some arthritis in his joints. From what I have read online, CBD oils have been useful for humans suffering from arthritis, but I have seen very little regarding horses. I ordered some CBD oils from this website (https://medicinalessentials.com/collections/pet-products) and found the product provided me with a nice sense of relaxation and really seemed to help with some of the joint pain I suffer from. I can only imagine that my horse would need to take $100 dollars or more of CBD oils daily to find the relief I found. I would like to research this further and talk with anyone that has had experience administering CBD oils to their horse. There are so many health benefits for me that I will continue taking it, and I purchased the dog chews for our older shepherd. She used to follow me out every morning to the barn to feed and water the horses, walked with me around the property to tend to plants and the garden, and was always active with chasing wildlife around the farm. As all dog owners have witnessed, she began to slow in her old age and began to have hip problems. Some say that is common with shepherds, but I didn’t want to rush to that conclusion. After I started dosing her regularly with CBD oil, I noticed a change in her willingness to join me on some of the excursions around the property. While she can longer be troubled to chase birds and rabbit, she has made the walk with me to the garden more frequently and has shown an overall improvement in health and happiness. If I could get that same result for my horse at an affordable rate, I would highly consider giving my horse CBD oils.
