CBD has already become a sensation in the health supplements market because of its miraculous cannabinoids. From immunity to the central nervous system (brain neurology), cannabinoids work effectively on various issues. Oils, tinctures, vaping juices, topicals, edibles etc. are already attracting customers and this trend is going to upsurge in the upcoming days. Still, cannabinoids are considered in the secondary (alternate medicine) category because of insufficient research papers. However, the current research results are satisfactory enough to make it popular throughout the world. During the ongoing research studies, it becomes apparent that CBD products work on several species of animals similar to humans. It means, your pet animals can also get the same benefits from CBD if prescribed by an expert veterinarian. Let’s understand how CBD products work on animals.
How CBD Reacts With the Animal’s Body
First of all, you need to understand that the endocannabinoid system in a body is the receptor of cannabinoids. When we consume a product containing cannabinoids like CBD, CBG or THC etc, CBD and CB2 receptors present in our nervous and immune system activate and react accordingly. Whether it is a high euphoric effect of THC or the mind soothing property of CBD, we feel everything when cannabinoids bind with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system.
The same endocannabinoid system is also present in animals that can be your pets or wild. Even this system is present in the bodies of all vertebrates and invertebrates living on the earth. Therefore, CBD oil for pets works similarly to the oil meant for humans. All you know is the right dosage for different animals. The dosage quantity varies on the basis of factors like:-
- Size of animal
- Age of animal
- Health issue
CBD product recommendation for pets
If you are looking for CBD products that work effectively on the health of your pet, consider some important things in mind as we are mentioning below.
- Know the exact dosage quantity
The first thing to consider while selecting a CBD product is its dosage quantity. Edible products like gummies and cookies are infused with a specific percentage of CBD. Therefore, dosage selection becomes convenient. If you are buying liquids like CBD oil and tincture, measure the CBD percentage in drops. Consult with a certified veterinarian who knows how to recommend light, medium or strong doses according to the age, weight and requirement of your pet.
- Brand credibility
When it comes to buying natural health supplements like CBD, you have to be aware of its brand. Certified and renowned brands always maintain their quality standard as mentioned on the labels. inferior-quality CBD products cannot maintain consistency in their products.
- Broad-spectrum or full-spectrum
Clarifying whether your pet needs a full or broad spectrum strain is the most important thing to keep in mind before buying. Approach a veterinarian who can examine the mental and physical health conditions of a pet and recommend a strain accordingly.
CBD is undoubtedly a great health supplement for humans as well as pets but its overdose is harmful. Also, don’t exceed the duration of keeping your pet on CBD dose more than the recommendation of experts. Unauthorized prolonged use and overdose may result in low blood pressure, drowsiness, and dry mouth.
