CBD For Dogs
As Americans we love our pets, dogs especially. With growing popularity of CBD most people have considered giving it to their aging or ill canines. What some people may be wondering is if CBD is safe for their furry friend. Although, right now there is no scientific evidence that states weather its unsafe or not, there are many people who claim to have good results.
What is CBD? CBD stands for cannabinoid oil. CBD can be found as a compound in the marijuana plant in lower percentages or in the cousin of the marijuana, hemp, and that’s where CBD is derived from in higher percentages. When the cannabinoid is extracted from hemp there should be no more than 0.03% THC. Unlike the similar compound THC, CBD has no psychoactive affects. This means CBD will not give you any sort of “high.”
CBD for dogs can be used for many things like seizures, pain, neuropathy, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, appetite control and more. Advising with your local veterinarian is always recommended, as with any over the counter supplements there can be negative side effects. According to a study done by the University of Colorado Veterinary school some side effects that can happen from giving your pooch CBD which are dry mouth, low blood pressure, and drowsiness.
The bottom line about giving your dogs CBD oil is to work with your veterinarian and do your research on the products you buy for pet. The best way to purchase CBD is to buy organic that way you can ensure you won’t be giving your animal anything toxic. The higher cost items are usually better in quality. Purchase the CBD in liquid form which is easiest for dosing and get a certificate of analysis from the seller stating exactly what’s in the product.
