Whenever something out there becomes popular, like CBD in the wellness space, there’s a lot of information that gets put online about it. What are the potential benefits? Can it help this or that? What about CBD for my dog (or other pets)?
CBD or cannabidiol is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. CBD is not THC, the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. In fact, most CBD products are derived from hemp, and most CBD products contain very little to no THC. All of our products here at Neurorganix are broad spectrum and our lab reports show no traces of THC.
Currently, there have been no formal studies on how CBD affects our furry friends. What scientists do know is that cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help maintain balance in the body and keep it in a healthy state.
Like humans, dogs have an endocannabinoid system, and this system can help them to potentially benefit from CBD to ease several conditions your pup may suffer from either occasionally or chronically, including:
While there’s no scientific data on the side effects of CBD usage for dogs, there are potential side effects based on how CBD affects humans. To minimize any potential side effects, we recommend starting with a smaller dosage, monitor your dog’s possible side effects or benefits, and either lower or higher dosage based on what you monitor. These side effects may include:
Dry mouth: Research has shown that CBD can slightly decrease the production of saliva. For dogs, this would create an increased thirst.
Lowered blood pressure: High doses of CBD has been thought to cause a temporary drop in blood pressure. Even though the drop is small, it might create a brief feeling of light-headedness.
Drowsiness: Dog owners have used CBD to treat anxiety. The calming effect of CBD can potentially cause slight drowsiness when using higher doses.
Like all products in the wellness space, finding a reliable source of a high-quality CBD product is incredibly important and can be hard to find! A lower quality product can be very different from a high-quality CBD product. You’ll want to make sure to get high-quality CBD Oil for your dog to have a better chance of the potential benefits to help your dog! So how can you tell what CBD product is high-quality?
Check For Organic: Buying organic will lessen the chance that the product has harmful toxins such as pesticides, fungicides, or solvents.
Check Processing Methods: Safe processing methods include carbon dioxide and cold press extraction. Some companies, however, use cheap methods and potentially toxic solvents, like propane, hexane, and butane, to extract THC from the plant.
Look For Third-Party Testing: You’ll want to make sure the CBD products you’re buying have third-party lab results that prove they are premium products, that they are actually organic, and that there is no THC detected.
CBD as a whole in the wellness space is a rapidly growing industry. You’ll want to make sure you educate yourself and do your research when it comes to the health and well being of your furry companion. If in doubt, make sure to contact your veterinarian with any specific questions!
