CBD is one of the dozens of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is non-psychoactive so it makes it a gentler alternative in seeking relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, seizures, spasms and other chronic ailments.
According to The Haddassah Medical School and Hebrew University of Jerusalem compared the effectiveness of purified CBD oil (isolates) versus a full spectrum extract, and found that the whole plant extract that contained traces of other cannabinoids, proved to be superior in alleviating pain and inflammation than the purified version.¹

One of the reasons the cannabis plant provides many benefits for humans, dogs and other animals is due to the fact that we have similar endocannabinoid systems (ECS). The ECS is a receptor system in charge of pain sensation, mood, and appetite. This is largely why big pharma tests on rats, cats, rabbits, dogs and other animals before going to human clinical trials. They know and understand the effects will be similar to what they can expect in humans.
Now that the cannabis industry is becoming more mainstream and more widely accepted, people are trying it as a means of alternative, natural medicine. With many human success stories abound, it only seems natural that we think about the benefits it has done for loved ones, that we want to include our pets in the healing process.
CBD dog treats has zero reported incidences of overdose or complications when used with pharmacological drugs. At best, if you give your pet too much, it gets lazy. If you don’t give enough, then there is no effect. We recommend 1 mg of CBD per ten pounds of dog as a starting point. This can be adjusted accordingly depending on the age and condition of the dog. Overall, it is a safe, natural way to help alleviate symptoms of aging, end of life care, and even the dreaded what to give dogs for fireworks anxiety.
