CBD is a compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. It doesn't have the psychoactive properties of THC and it has been used to treat various ailments. CBD has been used to treat various ailments in humans, but its benefits for pets are still being researched.
Pets are not just family members, they are also our best friends. They deserve the best treatment we can offer them. CBD oil has shown promising results in treating many of the symptoms that affect our furry friends such as anxiety, inflammation, arthritis and more.
Paradise Pets CBD oil for dogs can provide much needed relief for senior dogs with mobility issues. With the anti-inflammatory benefits, CBD reduces the inflammation and in turn reducing the pain. Several studies have looked at CBD’s effectiveness against arthritic pain all with positive results. A Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine study found dogs given CBD at a rate of 4.4 mg per pound twice daily for a month showed significant improvement in pain relief and quality of life. Lead investigator Joe Wakshlag, DVM, Ph.D., DACVN, said that some dogs were initially so decrepit that their owners considered euthanasia, but that after just days on CBD they were trotting around and even climbing stairs.
Promising studies are showing CBD can reduce itchiness in our pets.
Itchiness: Two recent double-blind, placebo-controlled dog studies report CBD significantly reduced itchiness, inflammation and skin lesions by 51% after eight weeks on treatment.
Behavior: Anxiety, and especially noise reactivity, is a major reason dog owners seek help using CBD. CBD for dogs may also reduce aggressive behavior and separation anxiety.
Seizures: In a Colorado State University study, dogs given CBD for 12 weeks had 33 percent fewer seizures than those given a placebo, but it didn’t work for every dog. These researchers are now working on a larger trial using higher CBD doses. Note that THC has been reported to cause seizures, so it should never be included in any CBD product for seizure control. In addition, CBD’s effect on cytochrome P450 could interfere with prescribed anti-seizure drugs, so never use it without your veterinarian’s consent.
Other: There’s also evidence from laboratory animals that CBD is effective in promoting bone healing, fighting infection and treating digestive order and slowing degenerative myelopathy.
Overall, the evidence is compelling that CBD for dogs can treat some conditions. The endocannabinoid system is the largest system in the body, and the least explored. Every year brings new discoveries—and new claims. It’s the beginning of a brave new world of health, but as with any new path, expect some wrong turns, dead ends, and false hopes. CBD is not a miracle drug, but it may be the miracle your dog needs.
