CBD Oil for
Pets: What You Should Know

Have you heard the
hype about CBD oil and its use for pets? If you spend any time on the internet,
then you most likely have heard about CBD oil for pets, and you may be
wondering what it is and if it actually works in dogs and cats. With a little
research, you’ll find that while the benefits of CBD in humans and animals is
very well established.  But how do we
know that it works for our furry friends? 

What Is CBD?

CBD is short for
cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring compound derived from hemp. Science
has identified more than 140 naturally occurring cannabinoids, and these
compounds interact with the endocannabinoid system in humans and
animals—including your pets.  You can see
our top recommended products

Cannabinoid receptors
function to maintain homeostasis (a stable environment) in the body, and they
are located throughout the body and brain. These receptors are involved in
everything from pain, mood and anxiety to appetite, inflammation and immunity.
CBD found in hemp can help stimulate these receptors.

What Is CBD Oil Used For?

In humans, CBD has
been shown to help with anxiety, inflammation, nausea, mental disorders,
chronic pain, mood disorders and seizures, arthritis and fibromyalgia as well
as being neuroprotective at higher doses. At lower doses, CBD promotes health
through antioxidant properties. As an example,  in humans, CBD is a more effective antioxidant
for the brain than vitamin C or E, and it can help with acne.

In pets, CBD oil has
shown to reduce inflammation, increase appetite, reduce arthritis and help with
hip dysplasia and cancer. 

CBD Oil for Pets: Helpful or Hype?

There are some recent
studies that indicate giving pets CBD oil is helpful in certain circumstances.

Dr. Joe Wakshlag,
DVM, PhD, DACVN, DACVSMR, associate professor and section chief of nutrition at
Cornell University’s veterinary school in Ithaca, New York, recently completed
study showing that CBD oil does help dogs
with chronic pain from osteoarthritis; the results of the study indicated that
there was a significant decrease in pain and increase in activity for the dogs
participating in the study.

There also are plans
to study the effect of CBD oil in cats with chronic pain, acute pain in dogs,
behavioral issues in dogs and concurrent use of CBD oil with chemotherapy in
canine cancer patients. Cornell also has a CBD safety study in cats that almost
is completed.

Another study, conducted by Colorado State
University’s veterinary school and published in June, found that CBD oil helps
dogs suffering from epilepsy. Many people also use CBD oil to control seizures
in their dogs. Many dogs and cats cannot tolerate the side effects of conventional
drugs to control seizures and many continue to have seizures while on
prescription medication.  We have seen
instances where people decide to stop the seizure medications and start giving their
pets CBD oil instead. At a follow-up appointments, in many instances, the pet
was seizure-free and doing very well without the prescription medications and
by just taking the CBD oil.

But again, at the moment, much of the evidence in support of CBD oil for pets is anecdotal so be sure to consult with your personal Vet.

Dr. Fred Metzger,
DVM, MRCVS, DABVP, owner of Metzger Animal Hospital in State College,
Pennsylvania, and adjunct professor at University of Pennsylvania School of
Veterinary Medicine in Philadelphia, reports that more than 100 dogs at his
hospital are being given CBD oil for chronic pain with osteoarthritis, and his
team is witnessing positive results.

Pet parents have also
seen what pet CBD oil can do for their four-legged companion.

Here are a couple of
success stories:

Many dog
owners are loving how well CBD works for relieving pain.

Coco is a
3 year old Old English Mastiff. She has hip dysplasia and arthritis. She was in
a lot of pain. She was also on 300mg of a pain medication called Tramadol which
was making here “spaced out”.

the surgery costs were too high, her owners started giving her CBD oil…

just 4 weeks, she’s become a totally different dog! She’s in less pain, and is
experiencing no side effects.

 “Maverick was diagnosed with lymphoma 2 years
ago and was not expected to make it 6 months,” Alicia says. “Between the cancer
and terrible arthritis in his back, my beautiful boy wasn’t eating and stopped
playing fetch.”

After doing some
research, she began giving Maverick CBD oil to help relieve his pain.

“I began to see my
boy come back,” Alicia says. “I am happy to say we are going on 2 years to the
vet’s disbelief and he is back to eating and playing as he always had … My
family truly believes he is doing as well as he is because of the CBD and we
will recommend it to all in a similar position.”

Lauren F. from
Queens, New York, also gives her dog, Jay, CBD oil for pain relief.

“Jay was hit by a car
when he was 4 months old and has metal pins in his right hind leg,” Lauren

Some days his leg
would bother him so much that he wouldn’t want to play, she adds. Jay took some
medications for pain relief but had to stop because he was allergic to some of
the ingredients in the medicine. They tried physical therapy and other
treatments that the vet recommended, but nothing seemed to help improve his
overall wellness. On top of that, he was dealing with severe separation

For Jay, CBD oil
seemed to be the best solution.

“CBD did not sedate
Jay, but brought him back to normal,” Lauren says. “It has been a true miracle
for his health and my sanity.”

Pet CBD Oil vs. Marijuana

A common
misconception is that CBD oil is derived from marijuana and can get your pet
high. This is a myth. CBD oil comes from industrial hemp. While CBD oil for
pets may contain trace amounts of THC (the compound in marijuana that gives the
intoxicated feeling), it is not enough to cause any mental changes.

Before trying any CBD
oil pet product, I recommended checking the label to make sure it is THC free
because THC is toxic to dogs. Better safe than sorry!

Giving Your Pet CBD Oil

Many companies now
make CBD products for pets, so you can choose from several forms, including
oils, chews and treats. CBD is considered safe with few, if any, side effects,
though some animals may experience upset stomach.



Dosage for CBG/CBD tincture from LN?

Republished by Plato



I just ordered the 1:1 CBG/CBD tincture from L. Naturals since I’ve heard CBG does wonders to anxiety, but since I am taking CBD now I didn’t want to go “cold turkey” off CBD and switch to CBG isolate (without knowing how well CBG works, plus full-spectrum/entourage effect).

Right now I am taking 25mg three times a day (1.25ml or 0.50ml three times of the high-potency tincture). What should I start with? I know really I should start low and increase, but like I said I don’t want to quit taking CBD while doing this process even though I know I should be good for a couple of days not taking my daily doses. Also, I’m on a lot of prescriptions right now that aren’t being affected, or noticeably affected, by CBD. Will CBG differ, especially with benzos/SSRI’s?

Exclusive Interview with 1906 Co-Founder and CEO Peter Barsoom

Since launching in 2017, edibles company 1906 has been focused on creating a new product category: functional cannabis. It sees the opportunity to offer high-functioning adults an alternative to alcohol and pharmaceuticals as they navigate daily life, according to Co-Founder and CEO Peter Barsoom. Barsoom last spoke with New Cannabis Ventures in April 2019, and he checked in to discuss an innovative new product, new markets and continued expansion. The audio of the entire conversation is available at the end of this written summary.

New Team Members

Over the past year and a half, 1906 has made some additions to its leadership team. Jackie Cornell has taken on the role of Chief of Policy and Health Innovation. She has a long career in public health, previously working for the New Jersey Department of Health where she helped regulate the state’s medical market.

Chonie Bradley joined 1906 as Vice President of Finance. She previously served as the Vice President of Finance with Anne Holland Ventures, the company behind MJBizCon.

Market Reach and Expansion Philosophy

1906 currently has a presence in Colorado and Oklahoma. Within the next couple of weeks, it will be launching into Illinois and Massachusetts as well.

Inside 1906’s Operations (Photo Taken Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic)

The company is working toward becoming the top brand east of the Rockies, according to Barsoom. When considering potential markets, the 1906 team likes limited-license markets–medical, adult-use or about to become adult-use. States like Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey are appealing. But, the company finds markets with low barriers to entry interesting as well. It has built success in markets like that with its Colorado and Oklahoma operations.

1906 expects to be in four markets by the end of this year, and it plans to launch in three or four new markets next year.

The company’s growth this year has had to take place during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has driven the company to embrace an agile and lean strategy. With such a capital-tight market, 1906 is approaching expansion into new markets with a capital-light mindset. It is reaching new markets through partnerships, but it is taking a unique approach.

Instead of developing traditional licensing agreements, 1906 has created a mobile tableting operation. Through this initiative, a truck contains all the necessary equipment to create the company’s Drops. 1906 establishes a relationship with a local operator, taking up less than 750 square feet in their facility. Within just a few weeks, the operation can produce 3 to 5 million tablets of the 1906 Drops, according to Barsoom.

The mobile tableting operations allow 1906 to expand into new markets with a consistent set of equipment and without a significant capital investment. It is able to retain ownership and control of its manufacturing processes and intellectual property. The company is able to capture 50 percent of wholesale revenue through its partnership deals, according to Barsoom.

Product Portfolio

1906 views its competition through a lens wider than just the cannabis industry. Products that people use to manage and enjoy their lives, whether it is a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a sleep aid, are competition for 1906’s products.

The company’s products, divided into different effects, are made with a combination of cannabinoids and other plant medicines. At the beginning of this year, 1906 launched its Genius effect, designed for cognitive focus. This product has a personal meaning for Barsoom. Diagnosed with ADD as a teenager, he has used Ritalin and Adderall for most of his adult life. While those medications worked for him, there are side effects. He hopes Genius can provide a potential alternative for cognitive focus. Already, Genius has become a top-selling product in Oklahoma, according to Barsoom.

The Genius Effect Has Been Developed to Support Cognitive Focus.

1906 has also launched its line of pressed tablets: Drops. These swallowable pills offer a way to experience cannabis in a traditional medicinal format. The Drops, available in any of 1906’s different effects, are controlled-dose, allergen-free and calorie-free. Barsoom sees this as becoming the future of cannabis consumption.

The Development and Launch of 1906 Drops Has Been a Major Focus for the Company Over the Past Year.

Previously, 1906 was excited about beverages, but now, the company has stepped back from this product category. Barsoom still sees opportunity in the long-term, but he thinks that social consumption will need to take off first.

While beverages are on the backburner, 1906 has a robust innovation pipeline. The company is working on extended-release tablets for its Midnight effect. Sleep is a major issue for millions of people, and 1906 sees an underserved segment in that market: people who don’t have trouble falling asleep but struggle to stay asleep. This new product will target those people.

1906 is also developing products to address women’s health and different types of pain.

Funding Insight

1906 raised $18 million last fall, and now, the company is in the process of raising a bridge round. This senior secured debt note, which is mostly funded, will help provide the necessary capital to reach profitability, according to Barsoom. The company expects to hit this milestone by December. After that, funding will become driven more by opportunity.

When allocating capital, 1906 carefully considers R&D projects as well as new market expansion.

In terms of future capital opportunities, Barsoom is carefully watching the opportunities that are currently on the sidelines. The outcome of the 2020 election could mean an influx of new, large institutional players into the market. Additionally, Barsoom is watching to see how SPAC money will be chasing deals in the industry.

Growth Outlook

In its first month of operations in Oklahoma, 1906 exceeded revenue expectations by three to four times, and Barsoom expects this trend to continue. Once the company reaches profitability in December, he anticipates the company will generate significant operating cash flow. As the company moves forward, its team tracks important metrics like same-store sales, labor productivity and return on investment capital.

While 1906 is highly focused on its innovation pipeline and expansion into new markets, the company is not losing sight of its responsibility to social justice. 1906 supports initiatives like the Last Prisoner Project and advocates for the creation of economic opportunities for people affected by the War on Drugs and for the end of mass incarceration. Barsoom sees the potential for cannabis to be a positive force in society, but he thinks the industry has not yet done enough to support and progress social justice issues.

New Cannabis Ventures provides a customized landing page for 1906, which is a client of New Cannabis Ventures. Listen to the entire interview:
