How Medicinal Marijuana is Now Curing Chronic Issues in Dogs

L.J. Devon | Natural News


National re-legalization of marijuana is closer than it’s ever been. The majority of Americans are starting to realize that cannabis is NOT an addictive, immoral and destructive drug. Americans are starting to see cannabis for what it truly is — a harmless, useful plant with several healing virtues. Among the virtues being rediscovered is cannabis’s ability to cure chronic issues in dogs.

The more states legalize the plant for medicinal purposes, the more we see businesses springing up to help both people and pets get well.

It’s important to understand that marijuana’s potential for abuse is not much different from that of OTC pain meds, soda or television, which are all legal. Actually, marijuana is practically safer than all three. Eating too much pain pills can wipe out one’s liver. Drinking too much soda can make one an obese, type II diabetic, and watching too much television can send people into states of lazy hypnosis that convince them via advertisement to buy into a long list of fast foods and pharmaceutical drugs.

Marijuana is not all about getting “high” either. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive but is just one part of the Cannabis sativa plant. While some relax to THC’s psychoactive quality, others are using another part of the plant — cannabidiol (CBD) — to heal seizures, pain and cancer. Interestingly, medical marijuana dispensaries are now using CBD compounds to help dogs with their chronic issues.

15-year-old Labrador mix experiences near instant relief from CBD treats

A woman named Wendy Mansfield, of Fort Bragg, California has been trying everything she can to help her 15-year-old Labrador mix named Kali.

Kali had been showing signs of chronic pain and was scheduled to be euthanized. The day before her dog was scheduled to be euthanized, Wendy decided to try one last option. Thankfully, this option was available in her state. She took her ailing dog to a marijuana dispensary designed specifically for sick dogs.

Kali showed signs of chronic pain and lethargy. She groaned and licked her paws often. This was accompanied by fits of coughing. After giving Kali a medicinal marijuana treat, nothing much happened until 20 minutes later. Suddenly, the licking stopped.

Impressed, Wendy gave Kali a second and third CBD treat. The cannabidiol was bringing Kali back to life. Kali came out of her depressed state, stood up and fetched her own water outside. It was extraordinary progress in a short amount of time! Many of the obvious signs of pain, like groaning, quickly subsided as well.
