Contact us for help/ information
Now that CBD and other forms of cannabis are legal many are considering helping their animal friends, especially older ones with sickness, discomfort or ailments with CBD dosing.
A critical aspect of using CBD for your pets is to ensure there is no THC in the oil as THC is what produces psychoactive effects. (CBD for pets should have 0.3% or less THC and will produce no psychoactive effects.) Both dogs and cats are highly susceptible to THC so it is imperative that you find the right product that will ensure that what your pet will be getting will help them and will never get them high.

Four things to know about CBD treatment From Dogs Naturally
1. CBD Is Not Psychoactive
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis. It’s this compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are just that … the beneficial CBD without the THC. And they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. In short, your dog won’t get “high” from CBD oil … he’ll get the relaxation without the intoxication.
And speaking of relaxation …
2. CBD Oil Reduces Anxiety
Does your dog suffer from separation anxiety or noise phobias? CBD has been extensively studied for its effect on stress and anxiety. In humans, research shows it can:
Reduce anxiety caused by public speaking
Reduce anxiety in both healthy people and people with anxiety disorders
3. CBD Can Fight Cancer
Helps the immune system’s killer cells to cause cancer cell death
Kills cancer cells by blocking their ability to produce energy
Has anti-tumor properties that slow and inhibit glioma cell growth
Can help increase the efficacy of conventional cancer treatment
4. CBD Can Treat Seizures And Epilepsy
Estimates suggest that up to 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. Most dogs with seizures are given drugs such as phenobarbital and potassium bromide. Sure, these drugs may help control the seizures. But they can be extremely harmful to your dog’s liver and other organs. And the drugs don’t work in all cases.
In another study, 84% of children with drug-resistant epilepsy had a reduction in the frequency of seizures.
