Like responsible pet parents that we are, we just can’t stand watching our furry friends being in pain or suffering in any shape or form.
Every since cannabis has become so popular among humans for treating a number of medical conditions, holistic veterinarians started wondering if this magical herb can also help our pets.
As it turns out, dogs seem to respond very well to this one specific chemical in cannabis – cannabidiol. CBD for dogs has become a new occurrence, and as it seems our furry friends are loving it.
However, when it comes to marijuana for dogs, pet parents have to be extra careful. Unlike CBD, the most famous cannabis compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is toxic and dangerous to dogs. In fact, dogs are very sensitive to it, and you should avoid it at all costs.
On the other hand, CBD seems to bring forth a feeling of calmness and balance in all mammals, including dogs. It’s not psychoactive like THC, and what’s also interesting, it fits perfectly in our dog’s bodies through its positive interaction with an endocannabinoid system that very much resembles our own.
Here are just a few health benefits CBD can have for your dog:
- helps with allergies and skin issues
- reduces anxiety
- reduces learned fears and phobias
- reduces aggressive behavior
- boosts appetite and relieves digestive problems
- helps with arthritis, joint, and mobility issues
- helps dogs battle cancer and tumors
- helps heal glaucoma
- relieves seizures and epilepsy
