By now I’m sure you know all about CBD oil and it’s incredible health benefits, but did you know that your pets can also benefit from using this wonderful plant too? That’s right, you can share the love with your furry and scaly loved ones too.
Is it me or are pets more loyal than people? They are honest, they lend a listening ear and they love us back unconditionally.
Humans and animals both have an ECS (Endocannabinoid System). This system of receptors found throughout the body is just waiting to be activated by cannabis. This means that after you consume CBD oil, it travels throughout your body to those receptors and fits like a key in a lock, the same way it works in humans. Although the American Veterinary Medical Association has not taken a position on CBD oil, there has been much research in favor of using hemp derived CBD oil for relief from anxiety, pain, inflammation, seizures and more. The AKC Canine Health Foundation is sponsoring a study that will evaluate the use of CBD in treatment-resistant epileptic dogs. They are hoping to be the first with data to support this issue. If your pet is suffering and you are considering CBD, please do your research and read the labels and ask to see the third party lab analysis results.
The team at My Hemp Benefits has just released a Full Spectrum 250 mg CBD oil for pets. One dropper full will deliver 8 mg of CBD and can be added to food or treats. Finding the right dosage may be tricky but it’s not impossible. Let’s start with some basics....larger sized animals will require more than smaller sized animals. Now let’s consider the ailment. Are you dosing for a healthy lifestyle and daily maintenance? With all the pesticides being sprayed on our lawns and parks, a maintenance dose is not a bad idea! Are you healing seizures? Anxiety?

She doesn’t limp or have joint pain anymore!”***************
So now that you’ve done your research you’re probably wondering what’s next? Talk to your vet. It’s important especially if your pet is taking any prescriptions. Although you don’t have to be concerned about overdosing or dependency, remember the basics and start low and slow. After monitoring you can increase dosage if necessary as needed. Weight and ailments need to be considered when administering CBD as it is specific to each individual regardless of human or animal. Basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1-5 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. To control pain, give every few hours or as needed. For other uses, or to break unwanted behavior patterns, give once or twice a day. Monitor your pet so you can find their sweet spot.
