Pets suffer from illnesses, anxiety, and age-related issues just like humans. CBD is often used to manage pain and help mitigate the symptoms related to these issues in humans but is it safe for our furry friends? And if yes, what dosage should you administer?
IS CBD SAFE?
The same endocannabinoid system that exists in the human body also exists within animals, but unlike with humans, the THC cannabinoid responsible for the ‘high’ that medical marijuana induces, is toxic to dogs and other animals. Therefore, you can treat symptoms in pets with CBD but it’s important to find high-quality CBD that contains very little to no THC.
To ensure the quality of the CBD you are purchasing you can request lab results from a third party to make sure there are no other contaminants lurking in the product, most reputable brands will be happy to provide this for you!
Before giving anything to your pet, it is important to consult with your veterinarian to make sure it will not interfere with any current medications. It is also good to remember that CBD is non-toxic in any amount, however, to see your desired results, dosing should start low and gradually increase as needed. We recommend 1 mg of CBD per 10 lbs based on your pet’s body weight to start and go from there! It may take 7-14 days for the cannabinoids to activate in the brain and central nervous system, so be sure to administer CBD consistently as you would a daily vitamin.
