A New Frontier: CBD for Pets

A New Frontier: CBD for Pets

Cannabis can do many amazing things; so many that more are being discovered all the time. This is not only true when it comes to humans, but animals as well. In fact, it was long assumed that cannabis could do nothing for pets and was even harmful to them. And while it’s true that THC can be toxic to some pets at certain levels, there is still a lot the cannabis plant can do for your pet.

None of us wants to see our pets in pain. But the vast majority of pet owners have no idea that CBD – a non-psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis – can do wonders for what ails their furry little companion. And thanks to laws relaxing across the country, especially when it comes to CBD, access for pet owners has never been easier.

There are even veterinarians who specialize in knowing about and using CBD to treat pets. They use it for pets who are in pain, especially older pets who suffer from arthritis and other joint pain; pets with anxiety when they are left alone or when they are around loud noises; also for different kinds of inflammation, nausea, seizures and more.

One of the most important parts about medicating your pets is dosage. Your dog can’t give you much feedback on how they are feeling or if they need more or less medicine. That’s why many are happy to discover websites like the one linked above; instead of trying to guess what your pet needs, you can start with dosing recommended by professionals and then adjust accordingly.

The days of just watching your pet suffer and having no options are over. Yet another amazing thing the cannabis plant can help with.
