We have been hearing a lot about the highly beneficial and medically miraculous CBD and its infinite health benefits to humans. That being said, let us talk about the latest product that has emerged for your favorite canines – CBD for pets. Continue to read to know more about CBD for pets.
THC And CBD – A Comparison
It is true that like CBD, THC is also derived from the same cannabis plant we call marijuana. Also true that THC and CBD are both one of the 113 cannabinoids that have been discovered to be present in the plant. However, CBD is not THC. CBD is non-psychoactive but THC is psychoactive.
What does this mean? This means that consuming CBD will not make you euphoric but consumption of THC gives a feeling of ‘high’ to its consumers. The point I would like to establish here is that giving your dog a product based on CBD is safe and it could improve its quality of life. Feeding your dog with THC based products doesn’t have enough research to be backed with, thus it is unsafe.
Why Opt For CBD For Pets?
CBD is being widely used in relieving pain in the case of several medical conditions in humans. Applying the same principles, it can also be used to cure and provide relief to the following medical conditions when it comes to dogs.
Arthritis is a medical condition in which one or more joints experience inflammation, pain and often stiffness. Osteoarthritis is a common disorder in dogs and it can be treated by prescribing CBD. Like we already know, the anti-inflammatory property is one of the key aspects of the CBD profile.
In pain too, the anti-inflammatory property present in CBD can come in handy. Thus, CBD is also prescribed to dogs in pain to relieve them from their severe back or joint pains.
Similar to how patients experiencing seizure is prescribed with CBD, it can also considerably reduce the number of seizure episodes in dogs. Thus it is highly beneficial.
A majority of the symptoms of cancer as well as after treatment symptoms of cancer can be relieved by feeding the dog with CBD. Thus, dogs being treated for cancer by chemotherapy can find their relief in CBD.
You being a pet parent, I am sure this read was worth your time. I hope your dog feels better after being given CBD.
