CBD for Pets
April is national pet month! It's easy to understand why our furry friends get their own month of celebration. Pets have been a part of human nature and culture for centuries. Animals and pets have a long and rich history of service to humans, so of course we want to serve them!
CBD for pets has become a popular topic, but what's the deal with CBD for pets? Do animals receive the same benefits and humans? Is it safe? We researched a few journals to give you to latest info on CBD for your four-legged friends.
While evidence on CBD use for pets is scarce, pet owners share endless stories of there furry friends reaping the benefits of using CBD products. According to Canine Journal, CBD use in humans has shown anti-inflammatory effects, easing anxiety, aggression, pain, seizures, muscle spasms, and neurological disorders. Cats and dogs have the same endocannabinoid system as humans, therefore theoretically receive the same benefits as humans. Anecdotes and a scant bit of evidence shows that pet owners may use CBD to treat issues like:
- Moderate to Severe Pain
- Chronic Inflammation
- Digestive Issues
- Symptoms associated with cancer
Side effects from CBD in pets seem to be mild in anecdotes provided by pet owners including dry mouth, drowsiness, and low blood pressure. One study suggested dogs may experience diarrhea from CBD consumption. If you have concerns about your pet trying CBD, consult with your vet before introducing to your pet.
While pet health professionals are waiting for more research, they can agree on what to look for if you’re looking to introduce CBD to your pet’s health routine:
- Look for organic, free of pesticides, fungicides, and mold
- Ensure the product has been independently tested for toxins and contains less than 0.3% THC as THC can cause issues for animals.
- Use liquid CBD to control amount of CBD your animal is consuming versus buying treats or another option that doesn’t allow for controlling the amount administered.
