Is CBD Right For Your Dog?

Does your dog suffer from noise anxiety, joint-pain, or dry, itchy skin? Almost every dog will experience at least one of these issues in their lifetime. But more often than not, dogs will suffer from some of them continuously. Recently, the use of CBD for humans has increased immensely. But, some veterinarians and scientists in the industry have been recommending cannabidiol, or CBD, for pet use. So, what is CBD?

What is CBD?

CBD is a byproduct of the cannabis plant. Cannabis is often associated with the psychoactive effect or “high” that is an effect of the cannabinoid, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – another chemical naturally found in the marijuana plant. While CBD is a derivative of the marijuana plant, it does not induce a high and can be very beneficial for humans, AND for our dogs. Among the long list of benefits CBD offers, anxiety-related behavior support is the most well known. CBD can influence the way dog’s brain receptors respond to serotonin, a chemical directly linked to mental health. CBD can help deal with stress and the correlating physiological effects such as elevated heart rate, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) symptoms, aiding in better sleep, and much more.
