Scientific research has shown that cannabidiol does not operate, or at least operates very weakly, on the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Those two receptors are the ones most powerfully influenced by THC, which creates the cognitive changes associated with feeling “high” or “stoned.” In fact, the CBD found in dog treats counteracts and suppresses the effects of THC. Cannabidiol binds to different receptors that suppress pain, moderate body temperature, alleviate pain, and lessen anxiety, among other effects.
What is HolistaPet CBD Oil? – Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most highly researched compounds found in the industrial hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa). This natural occurring cannabinoid is gaining more popularity over the past few years because of it’s amazing health benefits. Our CBD Oil For Dogs and our delicious CBD dog treats contain NO THC, are non-psychoactive and will NOT get your pet “High”.
Honestly, these treats resemble peanut butter cookies that I make for my fellow human beings—with the added nutrition of carrots for your dog. If you told me they were peanut butter munchies for me, I’d definitely accept them without question and dole them out to my friends at a party. But they’re for dogs—gourmet, fancy dogs! And they contain 5mg of Colorado-cultivated CBD per biscuit.
There are several supplements that I use to ease Rodrigo's anxiety. When I have a heads up about a storm or fireworks, then I can plan his supplements and treats accordingly. Sometimes, it's easier to give him treats, but as I stated above, all of the treats I've tried with my dogs have been a bust. They just DO NOT WORK! Other pet parents swear by them, but my dog is still stressed out, which is why I lean so heavily on Ewegurt and CBD oil for anxiety relief. Every dog is different and reacts differently to the various products available. I get that. I just want something that works for Rodrigo because there are times when giving my dog a treat to relieve his anxiety would be so convenient for me and fun for him, but I didn't think that was a possibility until I was introduced to cbdMD dog treats.
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.
