Currently, there has been no formal study on how CBD affects dogs. What scientists do know is that cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help maintain balance in the body and keep it in a normal healthy state.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. Dr. Klein says it is essential to note that in most cases, CBD oil does not contain delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. In fact, most CBD products are derived from hemp and not from marijuana.
How Does CBD Affect Dogs?
Why are we hearing so much about CBD oil now? Dr. Klein points to the legalization of marijuana in many places, which has triggered interest in potential health benefits of marijuana-related products. “We are likely to see continued interest in CBD and an increase in research about its uses and efficacy in the coming years,” he says.
While there’s no scientific data on the side effects of CBD usage for dogs, there are potential side effects based on how CBD affects humans. To minimize any potential side effects, make sure you are following the proper dosage.
The safety and risks of using CBD for dogs have not yet been researched. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved CBD and has not issued a dosing chart. Therefore, we do not know what size dosage would be toxic. Any medication or supplement carries the risk of a reaction. It is always advisable, when giving your dog something new, to start out with small amounts and then closely monitor the effects. And always check with your veterinarian first.
We know that our furry friends mean a lot to us and that is why we wanted to offer a line of products focused on CBD for pets ! CBD continues to prove itself as having great benefits for pets and we always encourage ourselves to look for healthy alternatives to improve their health. CBD for pets is a natural alternative to improving your companion’s overall well-being. Our pet tincture collection is made with high-grade coconut-oil and hemp-derived CBD – we not only want to offer the best ingredients to our human consumers, but our furry friends as well! Some of the benefits of CBD for pets include, assistance with general mobility, anxiousness (from storms or fireworks for example) or pain mitigation. Here at Calyx Wellness, you will find a variety of concentrations that will best suit your pets according to their weight. Here is a little dosing help to guide you to the right product: if your pet is under 10kg, you should always start with a lower concentration of CBD such as Relief.
It is always important to do research on all pet products before purchasing. You want to make sure that you are choosing the right product for your pet. Some CBD oils on the market are not always targeted to pets so therefore you need to find a product that is focused on pet health for the best results. Calyx Wellness has dedicated a whole line of tinctures to our furry friends because we know how important it is to find a good quality product that is not harmful yet effective. Oil tinctures for pets are one of the best ways to administer CBD to your pets because by administering the tincture directly in their mouth (on a spoon), you are getting the most absorption possible. If your pet is having a hard time taking the oil, you are more than welcome to put the CBD oil on treats or in their meals – you will still get the benefits of CBD so always do what is best for your pet! Calyx Wellness stands by the ingredients and the safety of our formula to be consumed by our pets. We always encourage you to consult your veterinarian before using any of our products!
Why buy CBD pet products?
There is always scientific education submerging on the benefits of CBD for pets. We have a variety of blogs that focus on CBD for dogs* and CBD for cats*. We are always available to try to answer your pet questions whether it be through our educational material or a phone call. Just as CBD benefits humans, so does it benefit pets and that is because we all have an endocannabinoid system. CBD is a receptor to the endocannabinoid system and the system aids in allowing our bodies to work at a balanced state. CBD is a great starting point to improving your pet’s overall well-being. We have had such great feedback from customers who have been using Calyx Wellness CBD pet line and have remained committed to the product because of the results. We always remind our customers to consult their veterinarians if they have any questions about CBD and its benefits for their pets.
