Canine and Cannabis : How Hemp Oil Affects Dogs

Published

on

CBD Hemp Oil

Humans have been benefiting from the advantages cannabis has to offer. In fact, it has been legalized nationwide in Canada and Uruguay, while the United States has allowed medical marijuana in the majority of the states. However, you might be thinking if this plant is not only useful for humans but for animals, as well. Well, the answer is yes and your dog can even benefit from cannabis. Wondering how it can affect the health of your canine friend? Check this out.

Hemp Oil for Dogs – How it Works

Cannabis for Dogs

By now, you surely know that the human body responds well to cannabis and cannabinoids because of our internal endocannabinoid system. As canines and humans have different physiologies, you might be wondering how this works for your beloved pet. There is no need to worry because your dog is also receptive to the compounds contained by this plant.

For one, these animals’ bodies need gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) to ensure that they have a healthy and functioning immune system. While they have the ability to manufacture from linoleic acid which is a type of fat, there may be times when your furry friend will lack this component and hemp can provide GLA to fight deficiency.

Cannabis also supplies omega-3, omega-6, antioxidants, phospholipids and various vitamins and minerals that are needed by your dog’s body to maintain its health.

Benefits of Hemp Oil for Dogs

If you are thinking of giving your dog a cannabis product, your best option is CBD hemp oil. It contains all the components needed by your dog’s body in just a bottle of oil. These products often have droppers to ensure controlled servings. Curious what this product can give your pet? Read on!

It Reduces Chances of Cancer

One of the main reasons why you should feed your canine with food infused with cannabis oil is it lowers the chances of cancer. Keep in mind that in 2018, around 6 million dogs were diagnosed with cancer worldwide. Moreover, the Veterinary Cancer Society says that this disease is a leading cause of death in canines with more than 10 years of age.

Dogs can have different types of cancer including skin, mammary gland, head and neck, lymphoma, testicles, abdominal tumors and bone. To ensure that your much-loved pet will have a low chance of getting this disease, make sure to give them this oil, especially because it is rich in GLA.

For Pain Management

Humans use this plant to manage their pain, spasms and inflammations. The same effect is also observed in dogs, especially older ones. These animals often get arthritis and other inflammations due to old age, making them suffer as they get older. To relieve their aches, see to it that you prepare food infused with this oil, making your pet more comfortable and pain-free.

It Improves Its Resistance

If you often see your dog scratching various parts of its bodies, the first thing you might think of is flees. However, keep in mind that these pets can also have allergies just like humans. This can manifest in itches and frequent sneezes, which is unhealthy and risky for these animals. Good thing cannabis oil has anti-allergy effects on canines, allowing you to help them relieve their itches and uncontrollable sneezes.

With a boosted resistance, you are also decreasing the chances of heart diseases and tumor growth, as well as normal sicknesses.

Your dog’s life is as important as any other life on this planet. As they are your companions, it holds a place in your heart, so taking good care of it is your priority. By giving your canine companion hemp oil, you are helping them maintain their health to live a long and fulfilling life.

What CBD Can Do for Shelter Pets

What CBD Can Do for Shelter Pets

VETCBD, a full-spectrum hemp and cannabis products producer and seller, and Best Friends Animal Society have recently announced their partnership intended to support animal welfare through the veterinarian- and medical marijuana expert-owned company’s One Fur One program. Named as the latest beneficiary, one of the Best Friend’s goals is to stop the killing of shelter pets by 2025.

To help Best Friends take better care of their rescues, VETCBD will be providing CBD hemp oil to the organization and its partners. Consumers can contribute to this initiative by purchasing tinctures, every single one of which will be matched by the company in donations.

In light of this partnership, pet lovers who are also CBD and cannabis consumers might be wondering how cannabidiol products can help shelter animals. Let’s shed some light on the conditions of shelter animals and how CBD can aid in improving their quality of life.

What are Shelter Animals?

Animal shelters play a huge role in taking care of their welfare. Animals in these shelters are often surrendered to the organization because owners no longer have the ability to take care of them. Pets that are abused are also taken to shelters to provide a better home and life for them. In the event that a homeless pet is caught in the streets, authorities bring them to these homes, as well.

Given these, it is safe to say that shelter animals have led a pretty hard life. That is until they were brought to shelters where members contribute in cash, kind, and action to take care of them. Around 3.2 million of them are adopted every year. However, the sad reality is shelters have limited capacities and with the rising number of animals being brought to them, they have no choice but to euthanize some of them.

What CBD Can Do for Shelter Pets

Research shows that dogs and cats have endocannabinoid systems which means that their bodies are designed to receive cannabinoids like CBD. In fact, just like humans, their bodies produce natural cannabinoids, also called endocannabinoids, that help maintains homeostasis. Because of this, there is no doubt that CBD has essential benefits to dogs and cats, especially those in shelters.

Keep in mind that these animals may have traumatic experiences given that many of them were strays or came from abusive situations. Those who were separated from their owners for any reason may also be experiencing anxiety. CBD oil can help address their trauma, stress, and anxiety it is known to have calming and relaxing effects not only in humans but also in animals.

This substance can also help address health-related matters, especially for sickly and elderly animals. Pets that suffer from chronic pain and seizures may benefit from CBD products. These can also help animals with cancer, especially in dealing with pain, nausea, and lack of appetite.

Before feeding your pets any form of cannabidiol, make sure to consult a veterinarian. Moreover, see to it that any product that would be given to them should be designed for them as dosages for humans and animals are different.

The Bottom Line

VETCBD’s initiative to help Best Friends is a great leap toward better taking care of animal’s welfare. In your own way, you can take part in giving shelter animals a better quality of life by donating CBD items or by purchasing from dispensaries with the same interest.
