Plant Projects New Zealand looks into the growing category of CBD for pets:
Like most doctors, vets similarly band-aid your pets ailments and don't approach aliments holistically.
With that being said there is now a growing trend of holistic treatment options in CBD for pets. Utilising this in conjunction with traditional medicine can certainly improve the quality of your pets life.
For humans and both pets CBD is known to play a strong role in regulating the following:
- Appetite, digestion, hunger
- Motor control
- Immune function
- Reproduction and fertility
- Pleasure and reward
- Temperature regulation
For animals specifically. Particularly dogs and cats an anxious animal is typically the most common treatment CBD is used for. This is most likely caused by:
- New surroundings
- Separation anxiety
- Loud noises (fireworks)
- Changes in their daily routine
If your animal is experiencing such things and you have exhausted all options, CBD may be a worthwhile option to address these concerns.
Is it safe for my animal?
CBD oil contains no THC, which is the purported ingredient that would typically get a human or animal "high". Often this has stigmatized CBD with the same consideration when in reality, medical marijuana can function as a natural healer for many problems.
It is recommended that you properly research the dosage amount required for your animal before you begin treatment and when you first start the treatment trial your dosage amount.
