CBD oil is more than just a buzz-term popping up in every conversation and news article related to health and wellness–it’s also a beneficial supplement for your canine companion. If you’re using CBD oil in your own healthcare routine, it’s worth considering it as an option for your dog.
Dogs can benefit from CBD oil much in the same way humans can. Dogs, as well as humans, possess an internal system, called the endocannabinoid system, that governs biological processes like sleeping, eating, pain, anxiety, and mood. CBD oil works by interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system.
As the market becomes increasingly flooded with pet-oriented CBD oil products, it can be tough to separate high-quality products from products that are mass-manufactured and contain ingredients that aren’t great for your pet. Some CBD oil products contain “fillers” or use solvents that aren’t beneficial for your dog. At VETCBD Hemp, we don’t add any ingredient to our tinctures unless they can provide a quantifiable benefit to your dog.
When crafting a CBD oil for your pet, there are essentially three types of oils a company will offer: isolate CBD oil, broad spectrum CBD oil, or full spectrum CBD oil. Isolate CBD oil refers to CBD oil that has been extracted from the cannabis-sativa plant with no other cannabinoids or plant parts. Sometimes companies will market this oil as “pure CBD” oil, which can lead a pet owner to believe this oil is superior to full spectrum oil, which is not the case.
Full spectrum oil refers to CBD oil that has been extracted from the cannabis sativa plant along with other usable plant parts and cannabinoids, including a trace amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or “THC.” THC is the compound in marijuana that delivers a feeling of euphoria to the user, but don’t panic–properly formulated full spectrum CBD oil doesn’t get your dog “high!”
Full spectrum CBD oil contains only a trace amount of THC, but that trace amount is necessary for the product to produce the “entourage effect.” The entourage effect refers to all parts of the cannabis sativa plant working together synergistically to give your pet the maximum benefit the plant has to offer. Only a full spectrum CBD oil can deliver this effect, which is why full spectrum CBD oil is the best option for administering CBD to your dog if you’re looking for the maximum benefits.
It’s also important to ensure the CBD oil you purchase comes from a company that sources it responsibly. This means they not only know where their product comes from, they know that the production of the plants used for CBD oil extraction do not have a negative impact on the environment and don’t put workers at risk.
When you know better, you can choose better, and choosing better means only purchasing CBD oil from companies that are willing to go the length to responsibly source their hemp. VETCBD only uses American grown, responsibly sourced hemp in the production of our CBD tinctures.
CBD oil, produced and manufactured safely and correctly, is a great product that can produce wonderful benefits for your dog. Here are just a few!
Research regarding all the potential benefits of CBD oil treatment for canines is still very much in its infancy, but what we do know is that it can be extremely powerful and beneficial to your pet when given to help support overall wellness. Some of the most popular and well researched reasons to administer CBD oil to your dog are as follows:
Because of the beneficial nature of CBD to dogs, it can be a great option to add a high-quality oil to your dog’s health and wellness routine. If you’re ready to try administering CBD oil to your dog, here’s how to do it correctly.
To find a starting dose, you’ll need to weigh your dog. A good rule of thumb is to administer .2 mg of CBD oil per pound of body weight. This means if your dog weighs ten pounds, you would give your dog 2mg of CBD oil. If your CBD oil is in tincture form, you’ll need to measure the amount of CBD in your bottle and determine how much is administered in one dropper-full of tincture.
Signs your dog is responding well to CBD include positive behavioral changes, and an increase in usual or normal activity, or calmness.
