As CBD gets more and more popular with humans and even pets, it’s very important to look at all the useful information on the use of it.
What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is a molecule produced by the cannabis family. While CBD does NOT have the side effect of getting you high, there have been plenty of healthy and safe uses of this product. Medical science is gaining ground on research into this ingredient, as well as research with Marijuana in general due to the legalization in many states. To be very clear, there is not enough concrete evidence or research yet on this product, so testing this on your doodle is all up to the owner. If your dog has arthritis pain, or any other related pain, CBD treatment may help. The most important thing is to do your research on this subject.
What is CBD used for?
As more research is provided, scientists in the medical field have discovered that CBD may help reduce chronic pain and inflammation. Other health benefits include epilepsy treatment, anxiety and depression, loss of appetite, and others. Cornell University conducted a study on CBD in pets, and the results were very positive. Over 80% of dogs in the study had a significant decrease in pain and increasing mobility when given CBD treatment. It’s acted as a pain reliever for many years, and as the studies and research increase, the medical community is finding many positives for the use of CBD.
It’s always good to be cautious when treating your pets with products that haven’t had a large amount of research. As the use of CBD continues to grow, and the positive findings are increasing, it can be a good source of pain relief for your doodle if they have pain or arthritis with old age. If you are wary of other medications and their side effects, CBD might be a good treatment to try out. Just like humans, every dog is different, so when using CBD, keep this in mind. There are no reported cases of harmful effects with CBD, but minor side effects could be triggered. This all depends on the dog.
