CBD Oil for Dogs: Benefits and Dosage Guidelines/Infographic

By on January 27, 2019

CBD Oil has become a popular way to help relieve a variety of ailments in dogs. But, exactly how does it work?

The endocannabinoid system exists in all mammals with receptors found throughout the body. These receptors create a bridge between the body and mind. They help manage pain sensation, memory, and appetite. Stimulating the endocannabinoid system helps maintain this balance. The good news is that there’s a way to naturally stimulate this system, through Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD.

Unlike medical marijuana, CBD Oil derives from industrial hemp. It contains less than 0.03 percent of THC, which means that you can help improve the quality of life of your dog, without any psychoactive effects. CBD Oil is commonly used to help aid a variety of symptoms in dogs like separation anxiety, arthritis, as well as cancer symptoms and sensitive skin. Despite these anecdotal accounts and new found benefits of CBD oil for dogs, research is still in the early stages, which means it’s vital to understand how to choose a quality CBD product for your dog.

For example, there’s a clear distinction between buying a CBD product made for dogs versus buying one for humans. There are important potency and dosage measurements that correspond to each product and production standards that need to be taken into account.

Of all CBD products, oil (in the form of a tincture), is the most common and effective method you can use to treat your dog. But you can also choose to give your dog capsules, treats or topical ointments. CBD capsules are clean and come with measurements. And treats are a great option for picky eaters, although the dosage for different treat brands vary by brand.

With this guide on CBD Oil for your dog, you’ll learn more about the ways it relieves ailments, how to choose a quality product and key questions to ask your veterinarian.
