Are you a fan of CBD? Perhaps you’ve been using oil, topical lotions, edibles, and more for a while now. It did, after all, become legal in Ohio as of last year. Are you a pet owner? Does your furry friend suffer from anxiety, pain, or various other health issues? Along with the legalization of CBD for humans, it’s also legal to purchase and use CBD oil for your dog in Ohio.
Many humans use CBD to treat cancer, curb anxiety, and more. It can work much the same way in your pets.
Though CBD and THC both contain naturally produced cannabis plant active compounds, and both are cannabinoids, they are certainly not the same. In addition, at least in Ohio, they are not both legal!
CBD is hemp derived and, therefore, legal in many states, Ohio included. At least for now, marijuana is not legal in Ohio unless you are an official card-carrying medical marijuana user.
The Benefits of Pet CBD
Just as many doctors don’t agree on every treatment under the sun, not all veterinarians tout CBD products as beneficial for pets. It all depends on who you talk to. Generally speaking, however, CBD can be used on pets for the following:
- Anticancer benefits
- Antianxiety and anti-stress impact
- Appetite stimulation
- Anti-nausea effects
- Cardiac benefits
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Antiseizure treatment
- Pain treatment
It is thought that CBD oil stimulates healing and health by bonding with a network of receptors – the endocannabinoid system – of the body. Dogs that are particularly anxious may become more relaxed and calmer. Senior dogs and dogs with epilepsy can also benefit from CBD. Dogs with arthritis symptoms will appreciate the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD.
Dosages And More
Though there are general dosage ideas when it comes to CBD and pets, the beauty of CBD pet treats is that the dosage is premeasured. How many treats your pet should get relies mostly on their weight/size. Here is an example of a pet CBD product:
KOI Soft Chews – With these CBD infused pet treats, you can supply your fur baby with the feeling of well-being and comfort they so deserve. These treats contain 100% pure true spectrum CBD oil and all-natural ingredients. This bacon flavored product provides non-psychoactive and non-toxic hemp oil and can be used as a special treat or as a dietary supplement.
Here come the dosages:
- 3 to 4 treats per day for large animals (70 pounds and over)
- 2 to 3 treats per day for medium animals (25 to 75 pounds)
- 1 to 2 treats per day for small animals (less than 25 pounds)
Each 5g chew treat contains 2 mg of the active ingredient true spectrum hemp oil.
Keep in mind that you should not expect immediate results. Some pets had to wait a few weeks while others experienced results in a few days. Be consistent and patient when it comes to application. Alter the dosage after a reasonable trial period if you feel it appropriate.
