Cannabis-based products help mitigate some of the symptoms associated with cancer such as nausea, loss of appetite, or chronic pain. No owner wants to see their pet deal with the side effects that come with a cancer diagnosis. Pet parents are seeing great results with CBD products because it’s helping their pets feel more comfortable during these difficult times.
And then, finally, there is also a significant body of research that suggests CBD can be helpful in fighting cancer and getting rid of tumors. Of course, nothing has come forward to state for sure that CBD will cure cancer, but we do know that it is helpful in treating the nausea, loss of appetite, and pain that can result from the cruel disease and the often harsh treatments we now have for it.
This article provides good info on the potential negative effects of THC on dogs (they metabolize it differently than humans). However, it fails to mention that dogs also metabolize CBD differently than humans. In addition, the first product on the list is from Canna-Pet. Canna-Pet was cited by the FDA for stating their products contained CBD when in fact they had very little or none when tested by the FDA. I’m not a big fan of the FDA and how it treats cannabis, but their lab methodology is reputable. Below is a link to FDA warning letters sent out by the FDA to companies that were misrepresenting the ingredients in their products. You’ll notice a number of pet brands were cited, including Canna-Pets.
It is essential for anyone to have a restful sleep at night to renew their energy that they can use the next day. Unfortunately, some people can hardly sleep at night no matter how they want to. Suffering from insomnia can be a serious condition because it can weaken your immune system. Though sleeping pills can be of great help, it may not be that healthy for you to depend on this medicine whenever you want to fall asleep.
The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), which approves pet food ingredient definitions, addressed the issue at its January 2017 meeting, Dzanis said. “AAFCO has subsequently issued guidelines to note that to date, no hemp-based ingredients have been defined or otherwise sanctioned for use in animal feed, hence any inclusion in a feed or pet food would be objectionable to state feed control officials.”
Before you decide to slip your pup a sample—or even one of your edibles (hint: they can’t eat chocolate)—be warned that animals are incredibly sensitive to THC. This is due to abundant receptors in their brains, their heightened sensitivity, and their propensity for experiencing static ataxia. Like humans, dogs suffer from a variety of ailments, such as aching joints and anxiety, that could possibly benefit from treatment with cannabinoids. But because we know even less about the effects of cannabis on dogs than we do of its effects on humans, you should consult your veterinarian before proceeding further. Cannabis has the potential to cause numerous negative health effects in pets, and unlike in humans, it can even be lethal for your animal.
