Our pets are family, so we want to treat them like family. And similar to us, pets can benefit from some of the same supplements we as humans use. If CBD can help us, what about our furry friends?
Of course, it’s important to make sure you find the right supplement for your pet and do your research to ensure it is suitable for them.
If you’ve ever taken a bioavailable CBD, you likely know that it can help with many symptoms. From calming effects to helping ease aches and sores in your body, CBD has a wide range of potential benefits.
So why wouldn’t you want to share that with your pet?
Well, the good news is… CBD CAN be good for your pet!
However, you want to ensure that it is broad-spectrum, meaning no THC is included in the tincture.
As with any supplement, you will want to know how it will work and react with your pet before you decide to supplement them with it.
So let’s get started.
First, let’s go over exactly what CBD is...
CBD oil (Cannabidiol) is derived from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid — the chemicals naturally found in marijuana plants. While it does come from marijuana plants, CBD itself does not create a high or any form of intoxication, unlike THC.
How CBD Works In Animals
In all mammals and many fish, birds, and reptiles, you can find endocannabinoid receptors. This is how cannabinoids — like CBD — interact with and affect our bodies. When we ingest CBD, the molecules indirectly impact two major receptors in the endocannabinoid system: CB1 and CB2.
When CBD affects these receptors, it in turn helps the endocannabinoid system by supporting our immunity, digestion, appetite, mood regulation, and more. That goes for humans and pets alike!
Why Use CBD On Pets?
While there is no definitive data yet to back the claims from vets and pet owners that CBD has helped their animals, there is research being done. But what we do know is that animals have the same endocannabinoid receptors that we do, and there is ample research on the benefits of CBD for humans.
Make sure to check in with your vet to see what they think about supporting your pet with CBD.
There are many things that CBD might help your pet with, such as:
– Easing stress and boosting mood
– Stomach and digestive support
– Mobility support
– Protecting the nervous system
– And much more!
If you find that your pet is uncomfortable, supplementing with CBD may be beneficial for them. But be sure to research how many drops of CBD tincture is appropriate for their weight, and check in with a vet before using. Just like with us, we should talk to a healthcare provider to see what is best before supplementation.
Choosing The Right CBD For Them
We care about what we put into our bodies, and we have the same care for our pets. If you do want to begin giving your pet CBD, you want to choose a quality product you can trust.
There are always things to look for when choosing such a product.
– What are the ingredients?
– What is the potency?
– What kind of CBD is it — broad spectrum or full spectrum?
– Are there any additives or preservatives?
We know you want only what is best for your pets. But there are many CBD products out there, so be diligent in your research! Make sure you know exactly what you’re giving them.
If your pet is experiencing any mobility or joint issues, then a product with an added benefit of turmeric could help alleviate their discomfort.
Turmeric And CBD
A vibrantly-colored spice, turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb, dating back to 3,000 years ago in India.
It has been studied in connection with inflammation and its powerful antioxidant properties — including in animals! It actually is already in many pet products, including some dog foods.
Dosage should be determined by your vet and is usually based on weight, but it is generally safe for pets in small amounts and may support their health.
