Benefits of CBD Oil For Dogs

Are you considering using CBD oil for your dog? Here is some information on the endocannabinoid system, the benefits of CBD oil for pets, and choosing the right product.

  • The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of cannabinoid receptors in the body that play an important role in regulating many physiological processes. Ie. Physiological, emotional, and cognitive stability. 
  • Pet CBD oil has been shown to provide a variety of benefits for dogs, including relief from pain, anxiety, inflammation, and seizures.
  • When choosing a CBD oil for your pet, look for a product specifically designed for pets and contains no THC and lab tests to show what is in it.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

If you’ve been researching or reading about CBD, chances are you’ve heard or seen reference to the endocannabinoid system (ECS), but what is it?

The ECS is a biological system that consists of endocannabinoids and their receptors. All mammals, including dogs, cats, and humans, have an endocannabinoid system. This system plays a role in regulating specific processes in the body that affect your sleep quality, skin and nerve functions, appetite, memory, mood, and even chronic pain.

The endocannabinoid system is believed to be responsible for helping maintain homeostasis or balance within the body.

How does CBD work in Pets?

CBD works similarly in pets as it does in humans due to our endocannabinoid systems. When there is an imbalance in the ECS—from aging, diet, environmental stress, or medical conditions such as arthritis—it can lead to symptoms of stress, pain, anxiety, and skin disorders.

Think of the ECS as the conductor or maestro of the body, helping the rest of the body communicate with itself for proper function. CBD works to help restore balance in the ECS by interacting with the endocannabinoids and their receptors. This interaction seems to reduce inflammation, pain, and anxiety in pets, just like it does in humans! While there is still research to be done, many believe that CBD helps prevent the breakdown of endocannabinoids in the system, like an antidepressant would help to maintain adequate serotonin levels in treating depression.  

Possible benefits of CBD oil for dogs

While there are more studies in the works than ever before, most of the overwhelming benefits are still anecdotal. Pet CBD has been shown to be effective in helping ease digestive upsets, help calm anxiety, and offer pain relief from chronic conditions such as arthritis as well as seizure disorders.

One study showed that CBD oil effectively reduced seizure frequency up to 89% in dogs with epilepsy, and a survey of veterinary professionals revealed that a significant number of them use CBD oil to treat various medical conditions in dogs such as arthritis, chronic pain, and anxiety.

Researchers are still evaluating all of the potential benefits of CBD oil for dogs and cats. Still, it’s clear that this natural remedy shows promise in helping improve our furry friends’ health!

Choosing the Right Pet CBD Oil

Not all CBD oil is created equally. When shopping for Pet CBD oil, ensure that the products you review include high-quality ingredients, contain verifiable levels of CBD, and are devoid of any contaminants like solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Our All Paws Essentials Pet CBD Oil is specially produced for pets using the highest quality, USA-grown hemp. A 3rd party lab tests it to confirm the absence of pesticides, heavy metals, and THC. This extra step is so you can rest assured that our CBD products are non-toxic and have no psychoactive effects, so it’s a safe treatment option for our pets.

  1. It is interesting to me that CBD oil has been shown to provide relief from anxiety for dogs. My younger brother’s dog has severe anxiety that is affecting its health. I will recommend that my brother looks into trying CBD oil to lower his dog’s anxiety levels and improve its health.

    1. Yes, broad and full spectrum CBD oil has been show to bind with The 5HT1A receptor similar to how anti-anxiety medicines and anti-depressants do for dogs and humans. It might be a good idea to mention that and look for some ways to help his dogs relax. Check out our blog post called “How to Help Your dog Relax”.
