What is CBD Oil for Dogs?
CBD is short for “cannabidiol,” a naturally occurring compound found in the flowers of the cannabis plant. This compound, and others like it, are called phytocannabinoids, or cannabinoids for short.
The cannabis plant (specifically to the Cannabis Sativa L. species) comes in two varieties: marijuana and hemp. CBD can be extracted from both of these varieties. Only CBD extracted from the hemp variety is safe for your pet.
How Does CBD Oil Affect Dogs?
Except for insects, all animal species (humans, canines, and felines included) have an endocannabinoid system. This system is a regulatory system of the body and plays a crucial role in managing vital physiological processes.
This includes hormones, immune responses, pain and inflammation responses, sleep patterns, appetite, emotional balance, and much more.
When cannabinoids like CBD enter the body, they interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). They interact indirectly with CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors throughout the body to bring homeostasis (balance and optimal function). In cells with immune functions, these receptors are in the central nervous system, the gastrointestinal tract, and the central nervous system.
Because of these receptors’ vast locations, CBD has a remarkable ability to support the body in many different ways.
Benefits of CBD Oil for Dogs
CBD products are used for a variety of reasons. Some of the more common benefits of CBD include the following:
* Assists the immune system
* Supports normal brain and nerve function
* Supports cardiovascular health
* Helps maintain a normal inflammatory response in the body
* Can help with occasional stiffness and soreness
* Provides connective tissue support and supports joint health
* May reduce free radical damage
* Supports antioxidant function
* Helps animals maintain a regular and relaxed disposition
* Helps manage normal stress
* May help with occasional or seasonal allergies
…and the list goes on!
Furthermore, high-quality CBD oils contain omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids as well as linolenic acid. These essential fatty acids make it a great product for supporting healthy digestion, heart health, and skin health.
CBD oil also contains nutritional antioxidants and vitamins B and D, which support healthy brain function and bone health.
What Dog Problems can CBD Oil Help With?
Research centers have performed trials to determine how CBD oil for dogs may help or reduce the following health conditions:
*Arthritis – Osteoarthritis leaves your pet’s joints inflamed and in pain. CBD oil may act as an anti-inflammatory, and some owners have even found that they could reduce their pet’s NSAID dose, thereby lessening NSAIDs’ adverse effects.
*Cancer – CBD may protect the body against free radical damage which causes cancer. Research is ongoing for canines, but in humans, it’s been found that CBD may “induce cell death, inhibit cell migration and invasion in vitro, decrease tumor size,” and more.
*Seizures – Studies have shown that CBD reduces seizures in humans and may do the same in dogs.
*Anxiety – Studies have shown that cannabidiol may regulate anxiety disorders in both humans and companion animals.
*Hyper Dogs – CBD may reduce hyperactivity and promote relaxation in dogs.
*Allergies – CBD may soothe skin-related issues associated with seasonal allergies. With CBD topical creams or oils, CBD may help maintain the normal moisture content of the skin.
*Glaucoma – CBD has been shown to effectively reduce cell death, discomfort, and anxiety that accompanies many diseases, Glaucoma included.
Speak to your vet if your dog is on any chronic medication. Although you may find that since research for CBD is ongoing, your vet may not give you an outright yay or nay!
