CBD is not toxic, not habit forming and not psychoactive. Although CBD is derived from the hemp plant, it is not marijuana and does not get your pet “Stoned” or “Intoxicated”. CBD does not interfere or interact negatively with any of your pet’s ongoing medications or drugs. CBD possesses many healing properties and is safe to use. Elderly or aging pets benefit the most from the effects of CBD.
Dogs with chronic inflammation and joint troubles can also benefit tremendously from having some CBD added into their diets. CBD is a known pain reliever, and a natural one at that, so it can go a long way in relieving the aches and pains your dog might feel on a daily basis, and it has also been found to help treat inflammation and give pups a more comfortable life.
Joey, I don’t know if your gf and Phoebe has went on their trip, but everything that I’ve read it takes about 2 weeks for CBD to build up in a dogs system and since your dog is a shitzu I would suggest a 1.5mg bag of treats from where ever you get them from. She is a smaller dog and there are 2 dosages I’ve seen. 1.5mg for dogs up to 45 or so and 5mg for dogs 45 +. As for the liquid I have no idea as I haven’t researched that. It sucks that no one replied to your question. I hope you were able to find the answer if they flew already. Good luck!
First, we need to outline the distinction between CBD and THC. Cannabidiol is not the same thing as tetrahydrocannabinol. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the major reason why words like “cannabis,” “marijuana,” “pot,” and “weed” provoke immediate and negative reactions among the general populace. Like CBD, THC is a cannabinoid. THC is a psychoactive compound that produces the sensations of being “stoned.”
In treat or biscuit form, with tastes and flavors that appeal to dogs, CBD treats may work for dogs who refuse, reject, or are resistant to medications in pill or tablet form. They may also be useful for dogs who are not keen on injections or for whom standard medicines have proven ineffective. Given the skepticism surrounding medical uses of cannabis, CBD treats should be approached when other avenues have been exhausted, and only after thorough conversations with a veterinarian.
More and more pet parents are turning to a key component of marijuana derivatives in order to bring some much needed relief to their anxious, sick, or aging pups. CBD, phytocannabinoid, and hemp oil have all been used and recommended to people for years, and more recently several state governments have approved their use as medicine. A few new companies are focusing on providing CBD for dogs in order to live a better quality of life without the need to load up on pharmaceutical pain killers and calming products.
