CBD for Pets: A Journey to Wellness

How to Use CBD to Help Your Pets

Any parent to a furry friend or pet of any kind would likely go to great lengths to keep them safe, happy and healthy. As medical cannabis and CBD for human use is becoming more popular and widely accepted, many individuals have begun to wonder if CBD can provide medicinal benefits for their pets as well. Today, there are specially formulated CBD products on the market so you can treat your pet with the same trusted methods as you do yourself!

CBD for Pets: How Does it Work?

Many don’t know this, but like humans, animals have endocannabinoid systems too. This allows animals to reap the benefits of cannabinoids just as we can. CBD can help pets with a multitude of conditions and can also help to provide a better quality of life for elderly pets. As with trying anything new for your pet, CBD should be used with a consideration to dosing. Consult with a CBD friendly veterinarian or call the expert educated staff at The Kannakraft Shop!

There are two main cannabinoid receptors in animals, CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptor is associated with the brain, lungs, muscles, vascular system, reproductive organs, gastrointestinal tract, and is the most abundant receptor in the body. CB2 receptors are associated with the spleen, skin, bones, immune system, liver, pancreas, and glial (brain) cells.  Symptoms of the following conditions are reported to be managed effectively with regular use of CBD at a proper dosage:

  • Cancer

  • Diabetes

  • Neurological Disorders

  • Skin Conditions

  • Digestive Issues

  • Aggression

  • Arthritis

  • Seizures

  • Joint & Body Pain

  • Nausea & Vomiting

  • Anxiety & Depression

Studies show that CBD can slow and stop the growth of cancer cells and even has the ability to induce apoptosis (cell death) of cancerous cells. CBD is reported to help alleviate symptoms associated with more than just chronic and acute diseases, it can also:

  • Stimulate Appetite

  • Induce Calmness & Relaxation

  • Reduce Muscle Spasms

  • Improve Equilibrium

  • Quickens Recovery

Be confident in using CBD products to heal your pet. CBD has no negative side effects and is 100% natural. There are no psychoactive properties associated with CBD, so you can feel good about what you’re giving your favorite friend.

Proper Dosing for Your Pet

When trying out CBD for your pets for the first time, it is always recommended to start with a low dose and increase until you find a minimum effective dose. The minimum effective dose is the smallest dosage required to provide relief. It is important to keep an eye on your pet for a few hours after administering CBD for the first time. Watching your pet is important to accurately determine the effectiveness, length of relief, and if a higher dosage will be necessary. Be sure to keep the initial dose the same for at least one week to give your pet’s endocannabinoid system time to properly interact and adjust to the CBD. If the starting dose is not effective, slowly raise the dosage by 1-2mg every 3 days until a desired dosage is found.
