How Can CBD Help Your Pet? Is it Safe to Use?

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from legally and organically grown hemp plants. Most CBD products are derived from hemp and not from marijuana. Hemp contains less concentrated amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the primary ingredient of marijuana that produces the “high” effect.

It’s essential to speak with your veterinarian to ensure that using a CBD oil is the right option to help your pet with whatever pains they have.

 

How Can Pets Use CBD?

According to a 2017 World Health Organization report, CBD appears to be safe and well-tolerated by animals. People can use CBD oils to help with several problems such as anxiety and insomnia. Athletes are turning towards using CBD oils for pain relief, reduced inflammation, digestive issues, sleep improvement, and body recovery. Your pets can use CBD for the same problems.

There are a few ways that CBD can be given to pets. The most popular method is to use a CBD oil that you can administer directly into your pet's mouth or add to their food. It can also be given through pet care products, such as chewable treats or capsules and topical creams or balms rubbed directly into the skin.

Studies done by veterinarian Stephanie McGrath tested all three administration methods on dogs. They found that using CBD oil has the best pharmacokinetic profile. In other words, CBD oil was able to reach the highest concentration in the blood, stay in the bloodstream the longest, and perform the most consistently across dogs.

What Issues Could CBD Help With?

CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects. Older pets may also experience muscle and joint pains that can be eased with CBD oil. Post-operative usage can also aid in the recovery process.

While CBD oil can help with seemingly mild issues, it can also potentially help with some medical problems. Research has shown that CBD for pets can help cats and dogs with comfort and activity for osteoarthritis. Studies also suggest that it could also help reduce seizures in epileptic dogs.

There is no conclusive data on this and no official study. Still, studies are suggesting that CBD could also help with cancer. It could possibly have anti-cancer properties or help with the pains of cancer.

Although there are no formal reports that can clearly show the effects of CBD in animals, pet owner anecdotes provide evidence that suggest it can treat pain, especially neuropathic pain.

After using the Red Raven CBD for Pets product, Red Raven CBD customers have reported that their dogs are not as stiff as usual. They’ve also said that recoveries from walks have gotten better. The effects may also help older dogs feel more energetic or calm some hyperactive dogs down.

What are the Possible Side Effects?

As stated previously, some studies suggest that using CBD is safe for pets. While there’s no scientific data on the side effects of CBD usage in pets, administering the wrong dosage could cause some issues, including:

  • Dry mouth: Research has shown that CBD can decrease saliva production.
  • Lowered blood pressure: High doses of CBD have been known to create a small and temporary drop in blood pressure, leading to light-headedness.
  • Drowsiness: Owners can use CBD to treat anxiety. The calming effect of CBD can cause slight drowsiness in higher doses.

Administering the right dosage is crucial for the possible side effects that CBD could have on your pet. Starting with a small dosage is beneficial for knowing how your pet will react to CBD. If they become sleepy or develop an upset stomach, consider lowering the dosage.

Which CBD Products are Safe?

When searching for a CBD product that is safe for your pet, a few factors should be considered.

  • Look for organic products. Red Raven CBD uses organic hemp to ensure that it doesn’t contain pesticides, fungicides, or solvents.
  • Don’t shop based on price. Higher quality and purity are typically sold at a higher cost. It’s important to avoid cheaper options since they may contain toxic substances like pesticides, herbicides, or heavy metals.
  • Consider buying a CBD oil because they’re easier to administer the right dosage. However, treats are another ingestible option, while a topical cream might be better suited for skin conditions.   
  • Get an analysis of the product. Ensure that the product is tested like Red Raven CBD, by a third party that can verify the level of CBD in the product and ensures there is 0.00% THC.

It’s important to ensure that the CBD oil contains zero THC. The possible signs of THC poisoning could include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, restlessness, or trouble standing.

CBD for dogs and cats showed an increase in the liver enzyme alkaline phosphatase during testing. However, the evidence showed that the liver wasn’t failing, and everything returned to normal. If your pet has problems with its liver, it would be good to advise your veterinarian before using a CBD product.
