Pets And CBD: Benefits, Dosage, And More

Posted on March 12, 2018

Why give Pet CBD Oil to your four-legged friends? (Like our fantastic MediPets CBD oil collection) Who doesn’t want the best for their pet? After all, our little furry friends give us unconditional love with no questions asked -

Well, except for cats. They’re clearly evil, and we’re here on earth just to serve them.

But I digress, with all of the known benefits of CBD for humans, what about what it can do for our pets?

In fact, both research and anecdotal evidence are available showing that CBD has a wealth of benefits for our four-legged friends. And, as we said, don’t our pets deserve the best?

You know, except for those cats… those evil, evil cats…

The Benefits Of CBD For Pets

According to MinistryofHemp.com CBD has a whole host of possibilities for our pets. It can help with such ailments as:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Appetite
  • Arthritis
  • Phobias
  • Skin Problem

And that’s just to name a few. According to the site, many vets have found that CBD can really help older pets with joint pain. Or, to put it in fancy science terms, it's “useful in treating acute ailments like sprains and strains, torn ligaments, bone breaks, and even during post-operative care to reduce swelling, pain, and stiffness.”

How It Works

Witchcraft, wizardry, and magic.

No, seriously, CBD works in humans through interaction with our endocannabinoid system. Science now shows that all vertebrates, such as mammals have one of these.

In other words, it pretty much works the same way in pets that it does in humans. According to one study CBD “binds to these receptors for a longer duration [in dogs], and evokes long-lasting therapeutic response without causing toxic effects.”

Ok, So Then How Much?

Just like humans, dosing depends on the individual animal. Things like body weight and size can all affect just how much CBD your pet should take. Generally speaking, it’s best to start small and work your way up. Most importantly, you should be patient. It may take a few hours before you see any effects in your pet.

And if you’re looking for a great product, we have a whole line of CBD for pets, including our Medipets line, which is non-toxic and supports your little furry friend's overall wellness. Because, once again, your pet deserves the very best.

Except for those evil cats...
