Frequently Asked Pet CBD Questions (You are not alone!)
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.
What’s the difference between CBD from hemp and CBD from marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana are from the same genus and species (cannabis sativa). The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.
How do I consume CBD?
The CBD oil we offer has a couple different applications. You can hold a sublingual dose under the tongue for 30-60 seconds (recommended for fastest absorption), apply the oil topically to your skin (can be applied directly to a problem area or mixed with your favorite moisturizer), or blend the oil in a health-conscious smoothie. We will include further dosing instructions with the product.
How much CBD should you give your dog?
Every dog and every situation is different, so you will need to try with a dose in the middle of the recommended range and monitor. You should see calming effects within an hour. If not, you may want to give additional CBD oil and observe your dog again. Your dog will not be lethargic, simply visibly calmer, and observable symptoms such as panting, pacing and whining should decrease once the right dosage has been found. Online charts give a range, but there is no known toxicity level, so you can safely experiment to find the right dose.
If you’re using other medications, make sure you check with your veterinarian before using CBD oil. Many holistic and integrative vets are more familiar with this option and will be easily able to answer your questions.
Hemp CBD has been the drug-free path to a happier, more relaxed life for many dogs, and it’s expected to be used even more widely in the future as more dogs experience the same calming results as Bennie did.
CBD Is Not Psychoactive?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis. It’s this compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are just that … the beneficial CBD without the THC. And they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. In short, your dog won’t get “high” from CBD oil … he’ll get the relaxation without the intoxication.
Can CBD Treat Seizures And Epilepsy?
Estimates suggest that up to 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. Most dogs with seizures are given drugs such as phenobarbital and potassium bromide. Sure, these drugs may help control the seizures. But they can be extremely harmful to your dog’s liver and other organs. And the drugs don’t work in all cases.
Will CBD oil make your dog high?
There are major differences between the hemp plant from which pet CBD (cannabidiol) oil supplements are extracted and cannabis. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties, is only present in measurable amounts in cannabis, which contains very little CBD. Conversely, industrial hemp has high levels of CBD and virtually no THC. It’s important to note that THC can be toxic to dogs, but CBD is safe. Cannabis and THC are highly regulated even in states where its use has been legalized, but CBD extracted from industrial hemp is legal in all states.
Another point to keep in mind that is that CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same thing, especially for calming purposes. Though they’re from the same plant and neither product is psychoactive, hemp oil is made from pressed hemp seeds, which do not contain CBD. In comparison, CBD oil is extracted from a compound found in hemp flowers, leaves and stalks. Be sure to choose products that contain CBD, not just hemp oil.
The most important differentiation to remember is that hemp CBD offers all the benefits without the THC, so you can be assured that your dog won’t get high–instead, they’ll experience a level of mild relaxation without any intoxication.
