YOUR DOG AND CBD

Holistic vets have been sharing some interesting reports about the benefits of CBD oil for dogs in their care.

  • A senior Staffordshire Terrier had a 6cm mammary tumor and metastasis  that disappeared in 3 months and didn’t come back.

  • A Jack Russell Terrier had a severe heart murmur and painful arthritis and, after a month, he wanted to go for long walks and his murmur was much improved.

These are two examples of how Australian veterinarian Edward Bassingthwaighte discovered how CBD oil could be a critical part of his holistic veterinary practice. 

“I simply can’t explain the improved heart murmur” says Bassingthwaite. “They normally don’t get better.”

CBD Oil For Dogs: What You Might Not Know

The results seem to be in! Researchers are turning their attention to this herb and, so far, they’re finding a lot of positive results. And just as CBD has helped humans, your dog can reap the same health-boosting (and even life-saving) benefits.

Let’s take a look at 10 things you may not have known about this often misunderstood herb, and the research that shows its promise in helping dogs with a variety of common health issues.

1. CBD Is Not Psychoactive

CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis and 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.

And speaking of relaxation

2. CBD Oil Reduces Anxiety

Does your dog suffer from separation anxiety or noise phobias? CBD has been extensively studied for its effect on stress and anxiety. 

3. CBD Can Fight Cancer

CBD and other substances found in hemp and cannabis have been found to have an anti-tumor effect. CBD has even been shown to stop cancer cells from growing and increased tumor cell death.

4. CBD Can Treat Seizures And Epilepsy

It’s estimated that up to 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. Most dogs with seizures are put on drugs such as phenobarbital and potassium bromide. While they may help control the seizures, they can be extremely harmful to your dog’s liver and other organs. And the drugs don’t work in all cases.

CBD has been shown to work well in drug-resistant epilepsy. In one study, 7 of 8 patients with epilepsy that was resistant to drugs saw a definite improvement within 4 to 5 months of taking CBD.

And a survey of children with treatment-resistant epilepsy found that 84% of the children taking CBD had a reduction in the frequency of seizures.

5. CBD Relieves Pain

The cannabinoids in CBD work so well for pain that scientists are considering it as a new class of drug for the treatment of chronic pain. Studies show CBD to be very effective.

6. CBD Can Help With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Animal studies show that CBD can prevent colitis (IBD) and restore normal gut motility in inflammatory bowel disease.

CBD also has antibiotic properties, including Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA).

  • https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18681481

7. CBD Reduces Chronic Inflammation And Autoimmune Disease

CBD has been shown to decrease the production and release of inflammatory cytokines that can cause allergies, hypersensitivities and autoimmunity. It can also suppress something called Th17 dominance, which is a major cause of autoimmune diseases.

CBD also inhibits the production of inflammatory macrophages and decreases chronic inflammation.

CBD is also a powerful antioxidant that’s shown to be more powerful than vitamins C and E.

8. CBD Can Protect The Nervous System And Help With Neurodegenerative Diseases

For dogs suffering from degenerative myelopathy and other spine and nerve issues, CBD shows a lot of promise. It's been shown to help people with Amyotrophic Laterl Sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease by protecting the brain cells from toxicity.

For older dogs, CBD has been shown to protect the brain cell death caused by free radicals and toxins.

9. CBD Increases Appetite And Helps With Nausea

If you have trouble getting your dog to eat, CBD may help. The National Cancer Institute reports that CBD increases appetite and carries this extra benefit, in addition to controlling cancer.

In animal studies, CBD has also been shown to help with vomiting and nausea, even when they’re the result of toxins and drugs.

10. CBD Promotes Cardiovascular Health

Just as veterinarian Dr Bassingthwaighte discovered, CBD has been linked to heart health. Studies show it can reduce the damage from damaged blood vessels and irregular heart rates, protect blood vessels from damage and dilate the arteries, and reduce heart rate and blood pressure associated with stress and anxiety.


 

First Of Its Kind Pharmacokinetics Study On Cannabinoids For Dogs

Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has just announced the findings of the first ever pharmacokinetic clinical trial on the effects of cannabinoids for dog pain.

According to a press release, over 80% of the participating dogs in the study who used a CBD chews saw significant improvements compared to those who received a placebo. Vets who were involved in the study referred to the product as...

“a game changer that will change the face of veterinary medicine.” 

Pet owners should always consult a veterinarian if they wish to treat their dog with cannabis in any form.
