CBD is effective on our bodies because it interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system we all have. Animals, both wild and domesticated, have receptor systems that respond to cannabinoids, including CBD. A little more information on this subject in this article.
CBD interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system
As we will explain in this article, Cannabidiol interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system of the human body, which consists of a set of receptors present throughout the body, influencing the key factors of our organism (mood, temperature or acidity). Like humans, animals also have an endo-cannabinoid system:
Therefore, animals react as well as we do to Cannabidiol. It is good to be able to offer them some of it, depending of course on their needs, and even better to select products with CBD specially designed for our four-legged friends.
What are the effects of CBD on animals?
There are several hundred scientific studies available on the use of CBD and its benefits, and almost 99% of them are carried out on animals. Many users and numerous studies highlight the positive action of CBD to relieve or treat animals on the following subjects: inflammation, osteoarthritis, epilepsy, fear or anxiety, etc…
In a study published in 2017 by the very serious American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (click here to view it), 61 to 91% of people who used CBD for their pets validated and confirmed the benefits of administering Cannabidiol on a scale of moderate to excellent. The identified disorders on which CBD was applied were: inflammation, anxiety, tumors, vomiting, convulsions, skin irritations, pain, etc…
One of the best known applications of CBD in animals is to relieve osteoarthritis: numerous studies highlight the benefits of CBD on an approximate dosage of 1 to 2mg of CBD per kilogram of body weight.
How do I administer and dose CBD for my pet?
In order for your pet to benefit from the beneficial effects of Cannabidiol, simply administer it with the same precautions as when you use it for yourself: place the desired amount under your pet’s tongue or place it on its food, and let it enjoy its favourite CBD oil.
Each CBD oil contains a precise amount of CBD per drop: start with a low amount and increase the amount over the course of a few days if the effects are not what you expect. A morning and evening intake is suitable for all animals.
Which CBD product should I choose for my pet?
It is important to select a product adapted to your pet: its needs in terms of vegetal oil, fatty acids and nutrients are totally different from ours. In addition, the taste of olive oil can be unpleasant for them. This is why WEASY Laboratories have developed CBD oil for animals, which you can discover in our shop by clicking here. This CBD oil has been specifically developed to add to the CBD pause a moment of enjoyment: it combines a hemp extract rich in CBD with a fish oil, reinforced by a delicious natural beef flavour. A measuring pipette allows you to safely put the product in your pet’s mouth and let him/her enjoy the benefits of Cannabidiol.
