Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound derived directly from the cannabis family of plants. It doesn’t produce a high feeling like THC, which is also derived from cannabis, instead it has been studied as a treatment for many conditions including physical and mental health, epilepsy, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.
Could it also help our furry friends?
The short answer is that are no formal studies assessing the safety and efficacy of CBD for animals, so until these studies happen, it’s unclear. However, some pet owners have taken things into their own hands and reported beneficial effects from CBD on their beloved companions, including combatting symptoms associated with pet arthritis, anxiety, and pain.
If you are considering CBD for your pet, you must first speak to your veterinarian. Then, you can consider your options. The American Kennel Club recommends seeking out organic CBD oil that doesn’t contain pesticides, fungicides, or other solvents, and buying CBD as a tincture. Also make sure to check that the manufacturer provides a certificate telling you how much CBD is in the product — there should be little-to-no hidden Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes a high feeling in marijuana.
If you’re interested in CBD for pets, look into NutraPet Wellness Drops with CBD. NutraPet Wellness Drops includes CBD derived from hemp (one of the plants in the cannabinoid family) grown on a May Organic farm. Each serving delivers 8.33 milligram of United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified hemp-derived, full spectrum CBD per serving and the tincture comes in a convenient dropper to easily administer the rotisserie chicken-flavored oil, drop by drop, over your pet’s food.
According to a recent report from the Hemp Business Journal, a division of New Frontier Data, CBD usage is predicted to “extend beyond dogs and cats (i.e., traditional pets) into equine sports (e.g., horse racing, polo, dressage, rodeo, etc.) and potentially to more exotic mammals (zoo animals or nontraditional pets) in years to come.”
