If you've tried CBD products yourself or you've heard another pet owner talking about it, you may be curious if it can offer the same health benefits to your furry best friend. Read on to understand a little more about CBD for dogs and its benefits.
They’re at home waiting for us after a long day. They are enthusiastic, giving, loyal and loving. They are dependent on us their entire lives. But did you know that CBD can help dogs and other animals to manage symptoms associated with various conditions and environmental factors?
CBD or cannabidiol is a non-intoxicating, non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis and hemp plant. It is the most prevalent compound found in the hemp plant and second in the cannabis plant.
The hemp plant is richer in CBD percentages and can test upwards of 15% CBD, while maintaining a THC level of less than .3%. The hemp plant is considered hemp when it tests and contains less than .3% THC. The hemp plant is legal on the federal level. Hemp is also rich in amino acids and omega fatty acids.
But is CBD safe for your dog?
Why Use CBD for Dogs?
Every dog has a different personality; some have a hard time relaxing, some panic at the vets, some get sick on long car rides, some show signs of aggression when anxious and some suffer terrible osteoarthritis-related pain.
Many dog owners find success in relieving these symptoms using CBD oil specifically made for dogs. Including:
- Noise phobia
- Loss of appetite
CBD for Dogs - The Research
Studies have revealed the following effects of CBD for K9s:
Research from 2019 Trusted Source looked at CBD’s effect on epilepsy in dogs and found that seizure frequency was reduced upon taking a CBD-infused oil.
One 2020 study Trusted Source on CBD for osteoarthritis-related pain in dogs found that CBD helped relieve pain and improve mobility without serious side effects.
Another 2020 study Trusted Source looked at the effects of CBD on anxiety related to loud noises.
Researchers concluded that the CBD had no effect on the fear response, but that there may be several reasons for this result, including dosing time. Additionally, some dogs may have developed a conditioned fear response to the lab testing environment.
A recent 2021 study Trusted Source suggests that CBD may help alleviate aggressive behavior in dogs.
How to choose the best CBD products for dogs
Your pet deserves the best, so using the same criteria for choosing CBD products for dogs as you do for humans is a sure way to make sure your furry sidekick is getting “the good stuff” he deserves.
Finding CBD products with good indicators of safety, quality, and transparency is a must. Look for the following criteria before purchasing and administrating CBD products to your dog:
- The CBD is made by a company that provides proof of third-party testing by an ISO 17025-compliant lab
- The CBD is made with U.S.-grown hemp
- It contains no more than 0.3 percent THC.
- It passes tests for pesticides, heavy metals, and molds, according to the COA
It’s also worth considering:
- The company’s certifications and manufacturing processes
- Product potency
- Overall ingredients
Indicators of user trust and brand reputation, such as:
- customer reviews
- whether the company makes any unsupported health claims
Because THC is toxic to dogs, choosing products that contain broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate is the way to go.
