But herein lies a problem. The research needed to determine the correct dosage for CBD oil in dogs simply hasn’t been done yet, Coates says. And, to make matters worse, FDA testing has shown that many CBD products contain little if any CBD, she adds. The best option available to pet parents at this time is to talk to a veterinarian who has experience with pets being treated with cannabis oil about proper dosage and reputable manufacturers, Coates says.
In terms of sleep, it stands to reason that a less anxious animal is going to be more ready to fall asleep than a hyper-vigilant one. Additionally, though, there’s evidence that CBD, in its interaction with the endocannabinoid system, can help establish and maintain a healthy sleep/wake cycle — which is what tells both humans and animals when to feel sleepy and when to be awake.
The endocannabinoid system contains various receptors (mainly CB1 and CB2 receptors) that react to cannabinoids, releasing enzymes throughout the central nervous system, brain and rest of the body, that promote balance, reduce the effects of harmful chemicals that build up in the body, reduce inflammation – a major player in chronic pain, arthritis pain – and more.
I have stage 4 kidney disease and struggle with congestive heart disease. My friend offered me some CBD oil and I decided what the hell, I’m 52 and dying. I stopped smoking using a JUUL vaper. I now refill my pods myself with 18% ECBlend Caranilla juice made locally in Oregon. I mix 10 drops of CBD to my refill of the Caranilla juice. I’ll keep you informed on what effects my blood tests show as I pray the oil helps pull up my renal functions.
For daily maintenance, you have to learn how to take CBD oil. You can select whichever product that feels right to you; a tincture that dissolves under the tongue, oil, capsules or more. Each of these ingested forms of CBD allows the compound to enter your body naturally, though the time before desired relief sets in may vary, and may be longer when ingested in these forms.
The CBD industry is still extremely new. The terminology hasn’t been officially sorted out yet, so each company kind of comes up with their own method of categorizing their products. As always, make sure that you do your own research before you buy anything. If you’re unsure, email the company’s customer service before you buy. Most CBD companies have good customer service teams and they’ll be happy to help.
It was in early 2014 that my veterinarian friend first recommended I look into CBD oil for dogs. My oldest dog was suffering from arthritis and my middle dog had recently begun suffering from severe anxiety any time I walked toward the door. The CBD oil did wonders for both my dogs. Since then, I’ve been a strong advocate for CBD Treats and Oil for Dogs.
Vaping CBD oil is one of the preferred methods to ease side effects of diseases, illnesses, and ailments including Leukemia, all types of Cancers, stress, anxiety, joint pain, seizures, inflammation, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and the list goes on. There are many benefits to CBD vape oil. However, the effectiveness of CBD helping with these conditions (and many others) hasn’t yet been scientifically proven, and many trials are still in pre-clinical stage.
