Can CBD Treat Pain in Dogs?

Many dog and pet owners who praise the benefits of CBD will say that it has helped reduce their dog’s pain and corresponding immobility. These claims should not be discounted, nor should it be blindly believed. However, these accounts are one of the main reasons that vets are so eager to study the possible medicinal uses of CBD in pets.

What are the Possible Side Effects of CBD in Dogs?

There is no scientific data on the side effects of CBD usage for dogs. However, based on the side effects we see in how humans are affected, these are the possible side effects to watch in your dogs:
  • Dry Mouth: Research has shown that CBD can decrease the production of saliva. For dogs, this would manifest as an increased thirst.
  • Lowered Blood Pressure: High doses of CBD have been known to cause a temporary drop in blood pressure. Even though the drop is small, it might create a brief feeling of light-headedness.
  • Drowsiness: Dog owners have used CBD to treat anxiety. The calming effect of CBD can also cause slight drowsiness, especially when using higher doses.

Shopping for CBD?

If you and your veterinarian decide that you should try CBD as a treatment for your pet, there are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing CBD oil and/or pet treats. Not all oils are the same. You want high-quality CBD oil to have a chance of it working.
  • Shop Organic: Organic means all natural. If the CBD oil is not organic, it at least should not contain pesticides, fungicides or solvents.
  • Shop Non-GMO: Pure CBD is so important to getting the most important and healing aspects of CBD. Don’t settle for anything less.
  • Don’t Price Shop: The higher the quality and purity, the higher the cost. You don’t want to go for a cheaper option that could have toxic substances such as pesticides, herbicides, or heavy metals. Make sure your CBD oil is free of additives.
  • Don’t be fooled by celebrity: Recently Celebrities have gotten into the CBD “game” but don’t really know much about what they’re doing. They own a label, but don’t know much about the CBD, the products, or the real purpose.

Try ORGANICO (1)

Although some CBD products have dosing instructions on the label, we recommend that you dose gradually. Every pet is different. (Just like people) Specialists recommend starting with 1mg per 10 pounds of body weight, twice per day and monitor your pet’s reaction.

5 Prescription Pills you don’t need

I have heard from many of our customers and doctors that they have seen a decrease in the use of prescription pills, while being replaced with CBD. People are using CBD as an alternative treatment which is much safer, non addictive and all natural compared to chemical based drugs.

There is still a lot of research that is underway, however, we are finding that CBD can be used in treating different symptoms that are otherwise treated using prescription pills.

We have seen CBD being commonly used to help treating insomnia, anxiety, ADD due to its non-existent side effects. There are many strains in cannabis that you can use to treat very specific symptoms.

Here are a few comparisons:

1. CBD Oil Vs Painkillers (Vicodin)

CBD oil/ cannabis has been used for a very long time, all over the world to treat pain. With more education and awareness, we are starting to see that people are slowly beginning to make their way to the ancient and traditional ways of using natural treatment.

Painkillers such as Vicodin are loaded with chemicals, and we see so many people effected by it due to its addictive nature and sometime causing death as a result overdoses. With CBD, all kinds of chronic pain can be effectively treated without any kind of side effects associated with chemical drugs. It’s completely safe and natural.

2. CBD Oil Vs Anti-Anxiety Drugs (Xanax)

Similar to pain killers, anti-anxiety drugs can be addictive to some people impacting their daily lives. It can make someone very lethargic and drowsy making the individual ineffective.

CBD can increase and decrease anxiety if you are taking the right products that have at least 80% or more CBD in it. So, you have make sure, that the CBD products you purchase have very high amounts of pure CBD in them.

3. CBD Oil Vs Sleep Aids (Ambien)

CBD is popularly used for medicinal purposes, helping individuals who suffer from insominia. It is more effective than medication such as Ambien which again can be dangerous and addictive.

4. CBD Oil Vs Anti-Depressants (Zoloft)

While antidepressants do not necessarily work for everybody and while it is probably not recommended for more chronic cases, it is still worth trying. Side effects associated with antidepressant use are rather exhaustive, and many people develop addictions. They can only sweep the symptoms under the rug, and usually are back when the individual stops taking the medication.

CBD Oil for depression can take some time to be effective since it works more on the psychology than on the brain chemistry. It thus takes a bit more commitment and time coupled with a deeper understanding of how plants work compared to chemical drugs for depression.

5. CBD Oil Vs Stimulants (Adderall)

People suffering from ADHD or ADD regularly use stimulants like Adderall for treating their symptoms. This is another instance where CBD Oil works on the psychology but still treats symptoms effectively and quickly. It is more effective to use CBD Oil to treat ADHD than it is to treat depression using CBD Oil.

It is also likely here that a Sativa strain is more appropriate for people suffering from ADHD than the indicia strain since it is more stimulating naturally.

Why are CBD edibles more effective!

CBD edibles are curated and developed with hemp oil. Hemp oil originates from the industrial hemp plant in marijuana ecosystem but very different from the marijuana plant. Hemp or industrial hemp typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago.

Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp are both members of the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique biochemical compositions and uses. Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. Source: Wikipedia

And here’s why edibles are most preferred and effective choice to take CBD:

No smoking required

No odor

Very discreet

Besides being less apparent and also not causing any smell, CBD in food is also lawful in all states, since the THC content in hemp seed oil is low. Hemp seed oil, when manufactured with care, can’t trigger a high.

And the best part is, with edibles, CBD can be offered in specific amounts per serving that is most effective, which is harder to determine with oils and also CBD rich cannabis strains.

For beginners and first time users who are skeptical, CBD edibles are the best start for you. Edibles take a bit longer to have an effect on your body but the impact lasts a while. Depending on the CBD edibles you are going to ingest that might have varied level of CBD, you can discover what level of CBD intake is good for you. It is recommended that you pick the lowest CBD level edible in the beginning to ensure your tolerance level.

This why our team at 3BL focusses very specifically on the levels of CBD that goes into each product that helps different symptoms an individual might be suffering. We take out the guessing game and leave you the most researched and final products that you can purchase from us. Our products have our CBD concentrates with 0 THC and are FDA approved.
