When it comes to CBD and its potential therapeutic properties, there is a lot of misinformation floating around the internet, mainly because people pick up information from various questionable sources. It’s good to diversify your sources, but it’s also important to pay attention to the credibility of the said sources. Otherwise, you’ll likely end up picking up wrong pieces of information. This is especially true when it comes to the subject of giving your dog CBD.

Since it’s still under scrutiny and there is a ton of research being done, CBD is yet to be FDA approved. This means there is no peer reviewed tested evidence about its properties. However, many people who have tried it said that it helped them overcome some of the accompanying symptoms of their condition. Similarly, many people have reported that their pets have also shown signs of improvement after taking CBD.

So, can you give CBD oil to dogs? What’s the worst that can happen? If you’re looking for answers join us on this journey, and we’ll try to break down both the advantages and shortcomings of giving your pet CBD oil.

What Is CBD?

Before we touch on the subject of giving it to pets, it’s a good idea to briefly cover the definition of CBD. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound that can be found in the cannabis plant. It does not have psychoactive properties, meaning it does not induce a high. It is becoming more and more popular in the last couple of years, mainly because it can potentially help alleviate some of the issues tied to symptoms of insomnia, pain, and anxiety. You can learn a lot more about CBD in some of the other blogs here at Peak City CBD.

What Is CBD

What Does CBD do for Dogs?

Now that you’re somewhat familiar with CBD, it’s time to cover some of the underlying questions. In particular, about its effect on animals, specifically dogs.

The first thing we need to address is the difference between CBD for humans and CBD for dogs. Fortunately, there’s a pretty simple explanation – there is very little to no difference at all. The only difference is in the dosage and, in some cases, the flavor. Other than that, everything else is more or less the same.

CBD for dogs has the potential to mitigate the following issues:

Pain 

Older dogs are known to be susceptible to arthritis in the later stages of their life. As you can assume, it’s probably one of the worst things that can happen to an animal who is continuously active, playful, and on the move.

Some recent studies have shown that CBD can provide significant pain relief in dogs with arthritis. The results can and will vary, but it’s relatively safe to say that CBD is beneficial for dogs that struggle with pain.

Seizures

Out of all possible applications of CBD, its application for seizures has been studied the most (in human trials). Since dogs have shown very similar reactions to CBD as humans we expect to have the same or similar effect on animals.

In fact, Epidiolex, a CBD product that treats two rare forms of epilepsy, is currently the only one approved by the FDA. So, there is some evidence of CBD’s positive effect on conditions that cause seizures.

Anxiety Reduction

Since it has shown somewhat good results in humans, dogs should in theory, benefit from it too. There are some great testimonials on the Peak City CBD website about Pet CBD.

The idea behind this is pretty simple – since CBD is known to have the potential to reduce inflammation and pain, it could reduce anxiety too. CBD is more like a supplement rather than a cure. In fact, it’s important to point out that CBD is not intended to diagnose or cure a particular condition, but rather alleviate its symptoms.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give to My Dog?

Proper dosage is a critical aspect of the whole equation. It is something that can either make or break your pet’s experience.

While there is a somewhat standardized chart of the recommended dosage, it’s more or less a set of guidelines. In most cases, you will have to monitor your dog’s behavior and fine-tune the dosage gradually.

With that being said, the general rule of thumb for starting doses is 1mg of CBD per 10 pounds of weight, twice a day. In other words, if you have a dog that weighs 10 pounds, the dose is a 10mg twice a day. What 10mg is, depends on the oi you purchase and the strength. At Peak City CBD, 10mg would be a full dropper of the 250mg CBD oil. If it’s your first time dealing with droppers and CBD, bear in mind that the term full dropper doesn’t mean that the liquid goes all the way to the top of the dropper. In most cases, 1ml is about 80%+ of the dropper. Our Peak City CBD droppers are calibrated, so it is easy to know how much to take!

In case you don’t see any results while following this formula, feel free to increase the dosage after about two weeks. However, make sure you do it gradually.

If you’re wondering how to give CBD oil to dogs, there are a couple of methods you can resort to. The most efficient way is to put the dropper in the dog’s mouth directly and administer CBD. However, if you’re unable to administer CBD this way for some reason, put it on a treat or mix it with something tasty like peanut butter or even add it to their normal food bowl.

Whichever method you opt for, the effects will be the same. So, it’s more a question of convenience than efficiency.

Potential Side-Effects and Risks

While CBD is still under research, we have a somewhat vague idea of what could go wrong. Fortunately, the side-effects and risks are relatively mild.  As long as you stick with correct dosages and quality products, your furry friend should be fine.

In some rare cases, CBD can cause drowsiness and diarrhea. It can also decrease the production of saliva, meaning you could see a slight increase in thirst.

It is always advisable to start with smaller dosages in order to prevent any of side-effects from happening.

Does cbd/cbg interact with prozac?

Republished by Plato

Published

I've read that the ssri prozac and cbd/cbg/thc are metabolized by the same enzyme in the liver and can cause the ssri to build up in the blood stream and I was wondering if this is a proven fact. It's been very difficult to find research on this. I started taking Prozac but I want to smoke too. If what I've read is true then smoking or consuming any cannabis product will hurt me more than it helps and that means no more cannabis anything..

Not All Hemp Products Are Created Equal

What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Both Hemp and Marijuana are in the cannabis family. Human intervention has produced variation within the species in terms of THC and CBD levels. Simply put, hemp is designated by a man-made definition of THC levels at or below 0.3%. Marijuana is always harvested from female plants and typically has high THC levels with little to no CBD, although some strains can contain verifying levels of CBD/THC ratios. Hemp has over 10,000 known uses, which can be made from both the female or male plant depending on the desired product. Mana Artisan Botanics uses only female hemp plants in our products, with lab testing guaranteeing below 0.3% THC levels.

Hemp extract is the phytocannabinoid concentrate, created through some form of extraction process, most commonly either with supercritical carbon dioxide or ethanol. The extract’s potency will depend on the levels of cannabinoids in the plant, so each batch of extract will have different levels of cannabinoids.

Why should you care where your hemp is sourced from?

The demand for hemp extracts is rapidly increasing in the U.S. However, there is still limited supply of U.S.-grown hemp, resulting in high prices that cannot compete against imported hemp extract from places like China or Eastern Europe. Consumers seeking quality products may find a lack of transparency when it comes to the origin of the hemp extract in their products. And unfortunately, there is limited data behind the volume and quality control behind these imported hemp extracts.

At Mana Artisan Botanics, we take great care to source high-quality hemp that is grown in the U.S., with the specific intention to facilitate health and wellness.

Do hemp cultivation methods matter?

In the cannabis industry much of what is grown, unless it is organic, is sprayed with varying levels of pesticides and fungicides. Most consumers don’t realize this is a common practice. Given the increasing demand for hemp and cannabis, many conventional farmers are transitioning their fields to these high value crops. Yet, hemp’s cultivation environment is critical as it can act as a bio-remediation crop, absorbing contaminants from the soil while it grows. If the hemp was grown in poor or misused soil, that plant might contain toxins you won’t want to ingest.

This is why at Mana Artisan Botanics, we source our CBD-rich hemp extract only from farms that have never had any toxic agriculture on the land or use any harmful pesticides or fungicides. All our products are purity and potency tested at multiple lab facilities such as Steep Hill Labs Hawaii and Hawaii Pharm Labs for cannabinoid levels as well as pesticide residue, heavy metals and other contaminants. State of the art testing methods are used and THC levels are guaranteed to be under the federal limit of 0.3%. If you want to review the lab results, please contact us!

Do different hemp strains deliver varying results?

Many of the hemp products on the market derive their CBDs as a by-product from other types of hemp varieties such as fiber or seed for hemp food products. The levels of CBD-rich hemp extract in these products are lower and lack the diverse spectrum of cannabinoids one would ideally want for an “entourage effect” that delivers the possible synergies made available by whole plant therapies.

At Mana Artisan Botanics, the hemp we source is grown with great care to facilitate high levels of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

What is the entourage effect?

The “entourage effect” or “plant synergy” is the idea that cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids in cannabis interact synergistically to magnify the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.

Are whole plant extracts superior to single-compound alternatives?

Do you know the difference between isolates and whole plant extracts? “Whole plant extract” has a wide range of cannabinoids. Most scientists agree that there is between 80-120 cannabinoids plus additional terpenes, in addition to the better know CBD and THC compounds. With a “whole plant” extract you are getting access to the much wider spectrum of cannabinoids in your hemp infusion for that entourage effect.Isolates are not known to be effective as a whole plant extracts for that very reason. Additionally, isolates can be over processed, sometimes with added chemicals for purification.

Mana Artisan Botanics uses “whole plant extracts” only, with full range of cannabinoids making our infusions superior to single-compound alternatives.

Why does Mana Artisan Botanics include Turmeric in our hemp infusions?

Curcumin, the yellow pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa) is one of the most intensely researched natural products available today. With over 6,000 peer-reviewed studies, including clinical and scientific research, turmeric is shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. We add turmeric in our hemp infusions to further augment the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoids.

Why does Mana Artisan Botanics include Passionflower in our Hawaiian Sleep Hemp Tincture?

Passionflower extract has been shown in studies to be helpful for relieving general anxiety and improving sleep quality. We add passionflower in our sleep hemp tincture to further augment the anti-anxiety effects of cannabinoids.
