Benefits of CBD Oil for Dogs
CBD oil for dogs has loads of benefits that can help dogs with many different problems ranging from cancer to anxiety.
Can CBD get my dog high?
NO, CBD can not get your dog high. While other cannabinoids, such as THC, are intoxicating, CBD is not.
Marijuana (THC) Toxicity:
We would like to also stress the dangers of dogs ingesting THC.
THC (as opposed to CBD or cannabidiol, which is currently being studied in dogs) can cause severe effects if ingested, such as loss of coordination (ataxia), depression, sedation, increased urination or urine leakage, disorientation, vocalization, vomiting, hypersalivation (drooling), tremors, seizures, and–if dose ingested was high enough–coma and death (rare).
If there is a possibility your pet could have ingested THC, contact your veterinarian immediately for treatment. Treatment started early is best.
What CBD oil is best for my pet?
The best CBD oil for dogs is ‘full-spectrum CBD oil’. Numerous studies and research papers have shown that CBD is safe for dogs.
The only real side-effect is drowsiness - so your dog might get a little sleepy (Source: Canine journal).
With that being said, do your research on what CBD oil would be best for your pet.
Things to consider before giving your dog CBD: - Further research is needed to determine the benefits of CBD for dogs. - Always consult your veterinarian before starting your dog on CBD. - It’s especially important to talk to your veterinarian before starting your dog on CBD if they take other medications. - Care should be taken when giving CBD to dogs. Liquid forms of CBD are preferable. CBD edibles designed for human consumption should not be given to pets because it’s difficult to determine the dose of CBD they contain and they may include ingredients that are toxic to dogs, such as chocolate. - Always follow the manufacturer's dosing guidelines that come with the CBD product you have purchased. You many need to weigh your dog to work out the dose that is needed.
