CBD: A Promising Alternative Treatment For Animals

Posted by on December 31, 2019 in Healing & Natural Remedies with 0 Comments

It has long been known that our pets have an organism similar to that of humans. For this reason, many healing methods or natural solutions that work for humans could be used on pets.

It is currently being discussed whether cannabidiol should also be used in veterinary medicine due to the good experience reports and studies. But how could CBD work in animals?

Dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system

Everyone has a so-called endocannabinoid system, the receptors of which are located all over the body. If the cannabinoids manage to bind to these receptors, they interact with them in different ways. Thus, CBD is also absolutely relevant in the animal world, because dogs and cats also have this system.

According to observations and research results, the receptors of the endocannabinoid system primarily address the awareness and perception of pain, emotions and movements.

There are many statements from consumers who felt pain-relieving effects during a dose, could relax or even got a grip on their anxiety disorders. Cannabinoids are believed to interact very strongly with these receptors and have an enormous impact on every organism.

Use of CBD oil in the animal world

There are now some pet owners who take advantage of the positive properties of CBD oil and give it to their pets. Depending on the size and weight of the animal, a feeding recommendation can be worked out. At best, you should consult a knowledgeable veterinarian before making this decision.

In animals, you can start giving it with a low dose and then observe when the desired effect occurs. When ordering the products, it is essential to ensure that no THC (<0.02%) is contained, since animals cannot break down this active ingredient and even a small proportion can cause permanent problems.

In addition, a particularly mild and pleasant taste must be ensured, so that the animals also like to accept the oil.

Clinical studies from Canada and USA

Animal research has already been done in the United States and Canada. In this way animals that, for example, suffered from stressful situations more often could be helped to calm down and react more relaxed. Especially anxious animals and those who seem to have unfounded nervousness have become calmer and calmer with the ingestion of CBD.

Likewise, dogs with epileptic seizures, CBD as a natural and side effect-free additional option, were successfully tested. Epilepsy is quite well known among dogs; these are convulsive strokes, which can often last for long minutes and are extremely painful for the animal.

Treating this situations with CBD oil significantly reduced the number of seizures, even by up to 75%. The muscles relaxed faster and the animal became calm more quickly.

Chronic pain had also good effects on CBD. Animals were alleviated many times over, so that the general movement of the animal improved. Especially in older animals, which had to do with joint problems due to their age, the combination of joint nutrients in particular made them significantly more agile and persistent.

CBD as a feed supplement

Possible uses of CBD oil in animals:

  • Increase in general vitality
  • Increase endurance
  • Recharge your four-legged friends' energy supply
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Supports normal digestion and metabolism
  • So there are no health problems to use the oil effectively.

Is CBD oil a good substitute for a sedative? Many pet owners worry about their pets, for example when it comes to long car trips or New Year's Eve. Many dogs and cats panic here every year and the pet owner tries to help his pet with sedatives. What many do not know – the animal experiences its fears despite the sedatives!

CBD oil, on the other hand, helps exactly where the fears build up and can help the animal at this level and reduce the stress. It can also help on long car journeys, where the animal vomits regularly due to stress and fear. This not only alleviates the nausea that may occur, but generally also the fear.

Risks and side effects of CBD in animals?

You should first talk to your veterinarian about your plan. Many owners are initially unsure whether the CBD oil will not cause some intoxicating conditions. Keep in mind to use only pure CBD oil.
