We've known how beneficial CBD is to the human body for many years now, but we are just learning about the benefits of CBD oil for dogs. Indeed, there are a variety of ways in which CBD can help dogs be happier, healthier, and more comfortable. CBD can also be used to assist with a dog's medication therapies. Come to find out, dogs have even more cannabinoid receptors than humans do in their brains.
The fact that dogs have more cannabinoid receptors in their brains implies two things:
1. They can benefit faster and more completely from CBD oil
2. They may be more sensitive to CBD, which means proper and careful dosing is very, very important
As a precautionary measure, we strongly recommend that you discuss CBD treatment with your veterinarian before administering to your dog. At least, be sure to research the topic thoroughly, but consulting a veterinarian is ideal.
What is CBD?
As you may or may not know, CBD is a separate compound found in the marijuana plant. In other words, it is a stand-alone compound. By itself, CBD has a lot of holistic health benefits which, at this point, are indisputable. CBD oil is an oil that contains only CBD and none of the other compounds found in marijuana.
At Healing Harbors, our CBD oil for dogs contains only CBD, no THC! THC is the compound that gets you high. CBD by itself will never get you high. Therefore, pet owners who give our CBD oil to their dogs can rest assured that they will not be getting their dogs high.
Is CBD Oil for Dogs Legal?
It is also important for us to iterate that there are two kinds of CBD oils. There is CBD oil derived from cannabis, and there is CBD oil derived from hemp. CBD oil derived from cannabis may or may not contain THC. It depends on the manufacturer. However, all CBD from hemp is guaranteed to be THC-free because hemp has no THC anyway. The kind of CBD oil that is legal in all 50 states is CBD oil derived from hemp plants, and that is what we sell at Healing Harbors.
What are the Benefits of CBD Oil for Dogs?
Although current studies of CBD usage for dogs are minimal, the results are very encouraging! With the information we have gleaned; what we can ascertain is that CBD or dogs helps with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, the following:
Also, because medications often have potentially serious toxic side-effects, CBD can sometimes be used in conjunction with a dog's medications to minimize the amount of medication that's needed overall and or to ween the dog off of the medication faster.
