Is CBD Safe for Dogs?

CBD oil has become more and more popular in the past couple of years, yet we still have little evidence on its benefits and risks. To learn a bit more about CBD oil, what it is, and if you should consider using it on your dog, read below!

What is CBD Oil?

CBD is cannabidiol that is a compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. In most cases, CBD does not contain traces of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana that gives it psychoactive properties. Most CBD products are usually only derived from hemp plants and rarely from marijuana plants.

How is your Pup Affected by CBD?

Like most cannabis plants, we don’t have a lot of research on them to reference. So it shouldn’t be surprising that there have been no formal studies on how CBD affects dogs when there are barely any being done on humans. Scientists do know that CBD interacts with receptors in the central and peripheral nervous system. Those nervous systems maintain balance in your body and keep it in a healthy state.

What can CBD Treat in your Dog?

Once again, there is no definitive research to know for sure what CBD can treat if anything. Through dog owners though we have testimonial evidence of their interactions with CBD being used on their canines. Owners have suggested CBD can treat chronic pain, especially neuropathic pain, as well as controlling seizures. CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties that can are thought to provide cardiac benefits, anti-nausea, increased appetite, and anti-anxiety.

Possible Side Effects of CBD

The AKC Canine Health Foundation is in the process of sponsoring a study to hopefully learn more about the benefits and risks of CBD oil in dogs. But until then, we only know potential side effects and risks. Dry mouth, lowered blood pressure, and drowsiness are the most common side effects to be suspected from CBD in pups. Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have not yet approved CBD, there is no dosing chart to reference for potential toxic doses. So if CBD is something you’re thinking of trying on your dog you should start with a small amount and go from there, as well as consulting your local veterinarian.

CBD Products

If you and your vet do decide CBD oil is a good match for your pooch, you should know a few things before making any purchases. Start by looking for organic formulas. You don’t want to use anything with pesticides, fungicides, or solvents or any additives. Don’t try to find the cheapest product, because the higher the quality and purity, the higher the cost will be. Cheaper options are going to be the formulas that contain harmful pesticides and toxins. You should ensure that the manufacturer provides a certificate verifying the amount of CBD in their product. You’ll find dog treats with CBD infused in them, but it’s best to stick with tincture administration so you can adjust your pups dose by each drop as needed.

Without sufficient research, it’s hard to say if CBD oil is beneficial or to know for sure if it’s safe. What we do have though are testimonials and personal case trials to go off of. And again, if you decide CBD oil is something that might benefit your dog always talk to your vet first to get a second opinion.
