# What do we need to know about this CBD?
# How is CBD good for our pet’s health?
The shortcut of CBD is from cannabigerol acid, which is produced from the hemp plants (or marijuana), a psychoactive component of hemp, DELTA-8 THC = tetraydrocannabinolic acid ( Shoyama et al., 2012).
The manufacturers start mass-produced and develop new products extracted from the premium hemp, cannabidiol. Examples are infinities: infused gummies, soft gels, tincture oils, vape cartridges, beauty products, healthy products. The producers insist the products are on legal grounds as a new alternative to traditional marijuana.
Obviously, before you buy it be sure you get from where the plants are growing, research how they extract the CBD from the hemp plants and what they are using for the carrier oil.
# 1. CBD Oil
We will be dissecting and spitting out more in-depth about CBD oil in the next article but for now, let’s see how it is and what is this CBD oil.
It comes with multiple strengths from 500mg, 1,000mg. 3 different flavours: peanut butter, chicken flavour, bacon.
Ingredients: pure MCT Oil (allergen reaction: contain a little bit coconut) + natural flavorings.
Nonetheless, the producers strongly affirm that are zero THC, Hemp extract, lab-tested, free of any toxins and the correct amount of CBD is based on the droplet. What does that mean? Researchers and doctors stated that the standard CBD oil dose is 1 mg / 10 pounds of body weight daily.
In the USA, Colorado State University Researches are looking into the effectiveness of CBD in the treatment of epilepsy and arthritis. For the time being, just in dogs with a long term condition. They have participated in a study for pet medication makers applying the based science corporation. Half of the participants are receiving a placebo the other half, CBD. The ones who took CBD were calmer, more relaxed and more able to understand the instruction and collaboration with their humans. Here is a nice beautiful review of the benefits of CBD.
Many doctors believe that cannabidiol has the ability to induce apoptosis to wave the cell down to prevent angiogenesis that is new blood vessels formation and often is how cancer s growing and spread. Lastly to prevent metastasis where the cancer is growing locally and it is enabled to spread.
Doctor Meller Davis one of the 4 researchers at Guessing Medical Center in ASCO put on education research on cannabis. They’ve taken on 4 subjects and studying at 3 different cancer cells lines and how they responded to the CBD cannabidiol. There is enough evidence that cannabis is oncosuppressive and there are multiple mechanisms by which it is oncosuppressive.
However, the important things when treating cancer with regard to the bodies symptoms are to start with low doses in THC or with the THC and cannabidiol, and slowly increase the dose to avoid the side effects. Certainly for such symptoms, the pain has a selling effect that occurs with the use of THC and CBD.
Cannabidiol does interact with the misfunction oxidase, CBD or cannabidiol inhibit CYP384 and THC suppresses the nervous system in CYP384.
# It is safe to administer CBD to your pets?
YES, it is! Studies have found that within 45 minutes of administering to your pets for a period of 12 weeks, you can see the results (Bergamaschi et al., 2016).
In 2018 a study by Cornell is looking at using CBD in treating dogs and cats with osteoarthritis. What they found is:
1. Is not physical negative observant
2. they noticed a reduction in pain at assessment
This is mean that the treatment is working for pets with osteoarthritis.
In another study, Dr Stephanie McGraphft is called the same result. Within 16 dogs she starts the treatment with CBD at a level the 2.5 mg/kg every 12 hours. Of all the dogs that have been treated with CBD at that dose around 89% of them were responding positively and shows a decrease in seizures activity. The CBD was given in conjunction with other anti seromants medication like Phenobarbital. This is a pretty impressive and really promising result, don’t you think?
We do know that out there are a lot of positive results. If you start with 1 mg/10kg for instance it won’t hurt or have side effects but will definitely improve the seizures and symptoms.
# The Difference Between CBD and Medical Cannabis (THC)?
The term “cannabis” varies how people are defining it. It is a lot of misconceptions, a lot of people up there who are using the term “CBD” to effectively define cannabis as an all. To be clear cannabis define the plant “cannabis Sativa” and this plant can produce many many compounds including :
# CBDA = cannabidiolic acid
# CBCA = cannabichromenenic acid
# CBGVA = cannabigerovarinic acid
# THCVA = tetrahydrocanabivarinic acid
# CBDVA = cannabidivarinic acid
A lot of people are familiar with CBD because is so incredibly valuable. The CBD that people are buying over the counter, from pets shops, from online that CBD is the one that comes from hemp. So hemp is cannabis.
Legally speaking Hemp is a cannabis plant that produces less than 0.3% THC.
A lot of products have a lot of benefits like calming your pet and helping the immune system but getting high is not one of them!
Nevertheless, studies show that the CBD found in the hemp with the CBD that is in the other type of cannabis is the same. The difference is what other ingredients are there!
# The Healthy Benefits
So, our brains, as well as animals brain, produce it normally produces cannabidiol and then catch the different cells throughout the body called CB1, CB2 receptors which are really important to regulating pain, sleep, memory, immune response. But these specific receptors can interact with plats, like cannabidiol, having these positive benefits. CBD is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic drug.
The secondary therapeutic benefit is natural seizure control, so. It is well-known that approximately 1 third of dogs that have been treated for seizures, don’t respond well to treatment for seizures.
Also, CBD can decrease the level of chronic inflammation.

There has been so much talk on the news and social media about this plant and while the truth is that this plant has been misused it is interesting to see how it has and is also being used in the medical field.
Now I am surprised that dogs can also use this to help them when it comes to their health it seems that this plant is helping to bring relief that is medically ill persons, including dogs. This is news for me did not know that.
Hi Norman, thank you for your kind words. It was something which we’ve been looking a lot for our furry boy as even his neutered, he is very anxious and suffers from separation anxiety so we’ve tried this CBD oil. For those sceptics, they have to know that IT IS REALLY WORKING. and make him calm not been so crying baby.
The main thing here is that having a furry family member will raise your life up by 100%. I’ve written more in the other article you can find it here
Great article. I have come across this idea a few times over the past year. It really isn’t too farfetched to think animals can respond to this kind of treatment. After all, they can become ill and suffer from health problems just the same as people. I wonder though to what effect does this have? I’ve kind of been aware for a while about how THC can affect the cannabinoid receptors in our brains. I guess it must work similarly for animals and with CBD instead.
Hi Alex, thank you for your feedback much appreciated. Yes, science has been proven through the researcher that CBD has a huge consistent impact in pets life and diseases as well as for humans. I have a whole new article, I will publish today and I will let you know.
Many blessings to you
Thanks for sharing this informative article. I have used CBD products for quite some time but never gave any to my pet. I appreciate this information. All the Best.
Thank you Joseph for this kind comment. I have been thinking for quite some time about this but I truly believe that CBD is good in any form with a good concentration for anyone and anything as long as coming from a natural source. Many blessings to you&family
I never knew CBD oil was also for pets. I have an older dog who is suffering from arthritis. She is quite old and would probably benefit from having some. Is this product available to Australia?
Hi Yvonne, YES that’s right CBD is working not just for humankind but also for animals. I believe all of them offer international delivery.
