Treat dogs with CBD oil – is it possible?
Humans have long benefited from CBD, but what about dogs? Can you make dogs and cats as happy as yourself with CBD oil? And what does it actually depend on? There are many questions that concerned pet owners ask themselves again and again, and that’s exactly what we want to address. Because we not only care about you as a customer, but of course also about your four-legged friend!
Dogs and the endocannabinoid system – the similarity to humans
You always wanted to know why so many people use CBD oil for dogs? The reason is the endocannabinoid system, which is not only present in masters and mistresses, but also in dogs! So CBD drops can not only contribute to the vitality of your favorite, but have the same positive influences on the dog as they do on you!
However, it is important that it is a broad-spectrum CBD oil, because only then your dog will benefit from the entourage effect. It comes from the synergy of several cannabinoids and their ability to interact.
Is CBD dangerous for dogs? Can my dog get ‘high’?
There are significant differences between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)! THC provides a psychoactive effect when consumed and literally makes you ‘high’. CBD oils and other CBD products do not have exactly this effect, which is why they are legal. So if you use CBD for dogs, your four-legged friend will not lie ‘stoned’ in the corner, but will behave normally as always.
Cannabis is not suitable for dogs, they cannot metabolize THC well. However, the THC content in our CBD products is less than 0.2% and that is too little for a psychoactive effect.
What is hemp oil used for in dogs?
CBD oil for dogs is recommended by more and more veterinarians for all breeds of dogs. It is not only the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids that your pet benefits from. Especially the individual properties of CBD oil make the substance so popular.
Here we have a small overview for you, against which complaints dog owners use CBD oil for dogs particularly often:
Anxiety and restlessness in dogs:
Dog owners know the problem: Even small changes in everyday life cause dogs to become anxious and restless. Whether it’s New Year’s Eve, moving house or a long car ride, anxiety often has a catastrophic effect on a dog’s psyche. If you give medication, the symptoms can be quickly alleviated, but side effects are to be expected.
CBD oil for dogs is well tolerated, as many users have already found in practical testing. It acts indirectly on the psyche, without having sedative or strongly depressant properties.
Dogs and pain – hemp oil should help:
Gladly CBD oil for dogs is also used for acute and chronic pain. Hemp plants consist of many cannabinoids that can have a pain-relieving effect on animals (and humans). Older animals in particular can benefit from the effects of CBD oil if they suffer from conditions such as arthritis or rheumatism. But CBD oil is also said to provide relief for dogs in acute pain.
Important to know: Omega-3 fatty acids in organic hemp oil help strengthen blood flow to muscles and the cardiovascular system. Thus, CBD oil for dogs can also indirectly affect the mobility in old age.
In turn, the dog’s movement contributes a lot to whether he develops excess weight and thus has a risk factor for osteoarthritis.
Inflammatory diseases in dogs – CBD drops can help:
Pulled from high-quality hemp seeds, CBD oil for dogs can bring numerous benefits. Among them is the reduction of inflammatory parameters in the blood, which is repeatedly reported.
There have been studies in the past that have proven that CBD is able to inhibit the production of inflammatory mediators and cytokines. This, in turn, would then cause inflammation to decrease.
Strengthening the immune system – high quality salmon oil and CBD:
CBD oil for dogs can help strengthen the immune system to prevent disease. Many dog owners report in reviews that the combination of salmon oil and CBD is particularly useful. The salmon oil provides the body with valuable omega-3 fatty acids, the CBD drops themselves provide a strengthened defense via the endocannabinoid system.
Dosing CBD oil for dogs correctly – what amount is suitable for pets?
The dosage recommendations for CBD in dogs are based almost exclusively on user experience. The culprit is that manufacturers are not allowed to give a recommendation. Your goal is to strengthen the well-being of your favorite, provide for shiny coat and do something good for your dog? Then you can orientate yourself by the following guideline:
An average dog (10 – 12 kg) gets an average of 4 to 6 drops of CBD oil per day and thus around 3.3 mg of CBD. For larger dogs, a higher dosage may be necessary. The practical 10 ml bottle makes very accurate dosing possible!
Tip: Play quiet once the companion of your dog and go with him to the vet! There you can find out more about the effect of hemp and get individual dosage tips for your dog.
Side effects of CBD drops in dogs – what to expect?
Even the best product can have side effects. The product properties of CBD are described extremely positively, even the WHO classifies hemp oil as well tolerated. From customer reviews it can be seen that an overdose of CBD leads to side effects much more often than a slow dosage.
If your pet has never been given CBD before, you can reduce adverse effects by starting slowly.
Good news: If side effects do occur, they are almost always mild in nature. Typical are fatigue, drowsiness, and mild gastrointestinal discomfort. How severe they occur depends on the CBD content and the amount given. Since dogs do not tolerate milk, our CBD drops are naturally lactose-free.
Are all dogs allowed to use CBD products?
Our CBD oil for dogs is made from EU-certified hemp seed and is therefore legal and well tolerated. Nevertheless, there are some contraindications against the use of hemp in dogs. These include:
● Pre-existing conditions such as low blood pressure.
● Liver disease (CBD is predominantly metabolized through the liver).
● Intolerance to cannabis sativa or hemp.
● Pregnancy in your female dog
● Use of medication (please check with your veterinarian).
CBD oil for dogs also use for cats?
Cats can also benefit from CBD oils, but there is a special feature here! The cat can not metabolize terpenes and these are present in a high-quality CBD oil! Dogs, on the other hand, have no problems with this and even benefit from the effect profiles of the terpenes.
So please do not use the same CBD oil for your cat, if it is not specifically designed for the sensitive velvet paws!
