Anxiety and Your Pets: Can CBD Help? Cannabidiol Hemp

Anxiety and Your Pets

Cannabidiol Hemp Oil

Many people are aware of the benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil for human use, but did you know that it can also help with anxiety and your pets? There hasn’t been much modern research into the use of cannabis oil for pets like cats and dogs, but there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence from pet owners who have used it on their little-loved ones. There is also evidence that this medicine was used in ancient times to treat prized animals. One of these treatments, called Berlin Hippiatrica was applied as a poultice to horses to help heal wounds. It has been adapted for modern use with THC-A, a non-psychoactive form of cannabis.

Yes, CBD Cannabidiol hemp oil can help with anxiety and your pets.

The Endocannabinoid System

Almost every animal, like people, has endocannabinoid receptors throughout their body. These receptors are responsible for helping to keep the body in a perfect state of homeostasis. We all produce and use cannabinoids in our body for this purpose and we are all susceptible to endocannabinoid deficiencies, especially with today’s modern, unhealthy diets. Thus, treating these deficiencies with the plant high in cannabinoids-cannabis can help to correct these deficiencies and bring the body back into a healthy state of homeostasis. Research is now showing that a diet high in non-psychoactive cannabidiol will treat these deficiencies without causing the associated high of THC-the psychoactive component of cannabis.

But the non-psychoactive cannabinoid forms of the plant are not the only ones being explored for use on animals in need. Many veterans from Lisa Moses, a board member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, to Los Angeles veterinarian Doug Kramer, who invented a cannabis tincture called Canine Companion, advocate for the development of veterinary cannabis medicines using both the psychoactive and non-psychoactive components of cannabis if the dosage is appropriate easing anxiety and your pets.

Proper Dosing for Animals

Since cannabis is known to be so safe and non-toxic, why is the proper dosage important? Most people have not experienced a heavy dose of cannabis oil because it is not as commonly used today as it used to be. Also, today’s strains have been bred to massively increase potency. This makes it doubly important for people to understand that not just any cannabis oil will do for an animal.

How High do Dogs get on Marijuana? THC-Free Therapy for Dogs 

There are oils on the market that are high in both CBD and THC, and some that are just high in THC. These oils can be unbelievably strong. So strong in fact that the most hardened, THC-adapted flower child could find themselves climbing the walls and begging for help if they take a dose that roughly resembles the size of a split pea. Imagine doing the same thing to your pet. Would an animal agree to this treatment? Can they?

For Your Pet’s Best Benefit, Make an Informed Decision

Humans can make the informed decision when deciding on the right path when dealing with anxiety and your pets. We must avoid the unpleasant side effects when they are choosing between the different types of CBD oil for sale. If it is necessary for a proper cancer treatment, they may choose to “ride out” the strong psychoactive effects (or in the case of a few intrepid souls, actually enjoy them.) Pets, on the other hand, can’t make the same informed decision. In some cases, owners will say the pets love the oil and beg for it because they love the taste and smell, and many pets do. But then they ignore the symptoms when the poor critter is too doped to move.

Cannabis and Pets: Another Way to Treat Animal Pain

Since it’s impossible for a pet to say how they really feel with this treatment, it’s unfair to make this decision for them. Pets don’t understand the psychoactive component of cannabis in the same way that humans do, so they should be given the nonpsychoactive form of the drug instead for their comfort, and at an appropriate dose for their size. They will still enjoy the amazing benefits of this plant such as pain relief, seizure abatement and reduction of inflammation, not to mention an increase in appetite.

This is the reason that is it very important for pet owners to check ingredients and active components when they are learning about types of CBD oil for sale. They can either put their pet through a bad time or truly improve their pet’s enjoyment of life with this choice. The information is available, so make a truly informed choice with the advice of a vet and a cannabis care advisor who understands the benefits and minor complications of cannabis care. They are out there and ready to help.

  1. Thanks for your nice post really this post is very helpful. Please keep it up your writing .everybody can easily check this kind of topic because it’s about CBD, CBD Oil, CBD Skin Care, Anti-ageing, Natural Skin. Thanks.

  2. Hi Elizabeth Pain
    CBD also is known as cannabinoids, are obtained from the cannabis plant…How to Control Anxiety in Dogs with Hemp Oil In this modern world?

  3. Has there been any research in CBD for exotic birds? I have a Umbrella Cockatoo who is a feather mutilator, and gets very stressed when anything in the home is moved. Since she is a rescue, I do not know much about her background. All of her blood work has come back good, so there is not a medical reason for her mutilating, and she has a large cage, and a lot of toys to interact with, and for the most part has free range of the home. I just wonder if CBD would be an effective treatment for exotic birds. Especially during mating season, and those who do pluck.

  4. Hey, great article. I looked long and hard for a CBD product that actually works for my cats. They both have anxiety, I’ve finally found one that helps when they’re having issues.

  5. It’s surprising to hear of treatments like Berlin Hippiatrica and the revelation that using this substance was routine for animal wound treatments in ancient times. You make a good point when highlighting the difference between a pet’s ability to choose and a human being.

  6. I think it is so important that you have discussed making sure that the correct dosage is found and used on the dog. Dosage, with an medical substance, is imperative to understand. Thanks so much for sharing the warnings and benefits of CBD for pets!
