While most people only ever think of the health benefits that CBD oil will have on people, there have been several studies which have shown that CBD oil may also be beneficial to dogs, so that is what we are going to take a look at on this page.
CBD oil is a compound which is extracted from cannabis. It is one of the two major compounds, along with THC. For the most part, in the United States it is legal to consume CBD oil. Of course, if you are in an area where you cannabis is legal, then it is going to be a lot easier for you to get hold of THC.
Will your dog get high from CBD oil?
It is THC oil which gives the ‘high’. This is because the CBD will not bind to the same receptors. This means that the animal will get all of the benefits without any of the ‘downsides’. This is not to say that they are not going to suffer from any issues with the CBD oil. There may be side effects but, honestly, for the most part the side effects are going to be minimal, and they are going to be minor in comparison to the huge number of benefits that CBD oil will have on your pets.
According to the familiar website CBDTrust.org
, It is vital that if you do give them oil, you do not give them standard cannabis oil. This is because it will contain THC and this is going to make your dog ‘high’. You should only be using CBD oil. While it isn’t a huge deal if your dog gets ‘high’ from the Cannabis oil, the effects are going to last for days, and they are probably not going to enjoy the overall experience.
How do you administer CBD oil in your dog?
Obviously, unless you have a very intelligent dog it is unlikely that they are going to be smoking the cannabis oil. Thankfully, it is still easy to give it to them. All it takes is a drop or two of the CBD oil in their food and that is it. They won’t even be able to taste the CBD oil.
The huge thing is that you can’t really overdose with CBD oil. A drop or two should be fine for most animals, however. If you have a dog that is on the larger side of things, then you will probably want to use up to three or four drops, but generally speaking, you won’t need to use more than that for your animals to get the benefit.
How can cannabis oil benefit your dog?
It actually benefits dogs in exactly the same way that it benefits humans. For example; if your dog suffers from anxiety, then you may find that CBD oil will be able to help them out. This is great for dogs which may be a bit on the more nervous side of things.
In addition to this, you will find that CBD oil will help deal with any nausea or sickness that your pet may be suffering from. This is, of course, one of those situations where you are probably not going to be using the CBD oil long term.
If your pet is on the older side of things, then you will have probably started to notice that a wealth of health conditions will have started to pop up in them. Thankfully, CBD oil is going to be able to deal with the vast majority of this. For example; the oil will be able to help them to deal with pain, particularly the pain that is related to arthritis. It may also be able to help them with digestive issues. Basically, if your animal is suffering from any sort of pain in their old age, then cannabis oil is going to be highly beneficial to them.
