Cannabidiol (CBD), the naturally occurring Cannabinoid constituent of cannabis, has helped thousands and millions of humans. CBD for dogs is now demonstrating efficacy to help them reap the same life-saving and health-boosting benefits.
The benefits of CBD for dogs are endless, including but not limited to:
One of the biggest advantages of CBD for dogs is that Cannabidiol is not psychoactive. This means that your dog will not get the “high” that is usually associated with CBD oil. In other words, he will be able to relax without feeling intoxicated.
CBD can also help dogs find relief from noise phobias and separation anxiety. Studies have shown that Cannabidiol has the ability to reduce stress and anxiety and can be used in dogs struggling with post-traumatic stress and panic disorders. In addition to these unique advantages, CBD is equally effective to kill cancerous cells by inhibiting their ability to produce energy. Moreover, the anti-tumor properties of CBD have the ability to slowdown and prevent glioma cell growth.
CBD also has the potential to enhance the efficacy of conventional cancer treatment. It can also be used to treat seizures, which is a common health complication with some dogs. Most dogs that are diagnosed with seizures are generally put on drugs like Potassium bromide and Phenobarbital. These drugs may be useful to control seizures to some extent but they often prove dangerous to the liver and other organs of the dogs. Moreover, these drugs are not always successful.
According to Animal Studies, Cannabidiol can also prove to be a viable option for preventing colitis (IBD) and restoring normal gut motility in inflammatory bowel disease. Cannabidiol is also known to demonstrate efficacy in drug-resistant epilepsy. CBD is also known to protect blood vessels from damage and reduce blood pressure and heart rate that are associated with stress and anxiety.
Cannabidiol is also effective to reduce the production and release of inflammatory cytokines that may result in hypersensitivities, allergies, and autoimmunity. In addition to these advantages, Cannabidiol is extremely beneficial to reduce inflammation, especially intestinal inflammation that is linked with irritable bowel disease. It also shows a lot of promise for dogs that are suffering from degenerative myelopathy and other forms of spine and nerve issues. CBD is also known to inhibit the production of inflammatory macrophages and reducing chronic inflammation. CBD is also effective to reduce pain including nerve-related and neuropathy pain. Furthermore, it is also beneficial to reduce the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress that leads to premature aging and degeneration.
