Fido looking a bit out of sorts? Fifi not quite herself? Well, believe it or not you can mellow your fur baby out with the help of a product that comes straight from specific varieties of the cannabis plant. No, we’re not suggesting you roll a fatty and share it with your pooch. What you’ll be using is Cannabidiol (CBD).
Before we get to the dull science parts, you need to know that your dog will not get a case of the munchies about half an hour after using CBD. Nor will they pass out on the couch, make a mess, rush to the bathroom in the middle of the night and require a ride home the next morning. Not that we’ve ever experienced that ourselves, but you never know.
Cool Things About CBD
CBD is different from THC. Not just because there are different letters, either. While THC has psychoactive effects, CBD does not. However, it does have a cool super power. It’s sorta mellow you out. It also It’s a feeling of overall wellness and balance.
What Does This Mean For Fido or Fifi?
You probably know how catnip can calm a cat, right? Well, CBD is catnip for dogs.
The Neurological Science Part (don’t say we didn’t warn you)
Dogs and humans both have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a network of cellular activators and receptors that regulate hundreds of physiological processes inside the body. It’s like the ECS is the switching unit that fires off all the signals to the rest of your body. Feel kinda crappy today? Blame your ECS. Have a bundle of nerves and are as stressed out as you can be? That’s your ECS acting up again.
The CBD binds to specific receptors in the ECS of Fido or Fifi and as a result, will regulate what’s out of whack. In other words, if your dog is a touch spooked for no reason today, the CBD will latch on to the faulty switch and either close it or open it enough to let the ‘good vibes’ flow to rectify the situation. What happens next is the spookiness is gone and your dog has no idea why but it feels a whole lot better all of a sudden and will go and fetch that ball for you anyway.
The Science Part
CBD for dogs activates vaniloid, adenosine and serotonin receptors. It can reduce the risk of cancer cell production, regulates pain, inflammation and temperature. It can boost antidepressant effects and has no known side effects. Plus, the groovy vibes that come from CBD will last longer on your dog than it will on you.
Conditions CBD Can Help
CBD is effective in the treatment of various ailments in your dog including allergies, anxiety, fears, loss of appetite, digestive problems, arthritis, inflammation, cancer and tumors, skin irritations, seizures, epilepsy, glaucoma and spasms.
CBD for dogs is available in various forms. There’s edibles (treats), CBD oil (organic is best), tinctures (not as potent as CBD oil), topicals (creams, gels and other applications) and capsules (one a day keeps Fido mellow).
