How can CBD help dogs?
There currently are no formal studies on how CBD affects dogs. But what we do know is that cannabinoids blend with the endocannabinoid receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems. This can help maintain balance in the body and keep it in a healthy state. Many, many dog owners have stated that CBD has helped their dogs with a number of issues. Those issues include pain, helping to control seizures, antinausea, appetite stimulation, anti-anxiety, anti-cancer benefits (there is no specific data on this use), its antiinflammatory properties can help arthritis in older dogs as well.
The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) is sponsoring a study, through the Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, that will evaluate the use of CBD in treatment-resistant epileptic dogs. The CHF hopes that this will be the first study to gain scientific data on the use of CBD in dogs with this condition.
Are there side effects?
While there isn’t any current scientific data on the side effects of CBD for dogs, there are possible side effects based on how CBD can affects humans. To minimize any potential side effects, make sure you are following the proper dosage listed on the product.
- Dry mouth: Research has shown that CBD can decrease the production of saliva. For dogs, this
would show 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 lightheadedness.
- Drowsiness: Dog owners have used CBD to treat anxiety. The calming effect of CBD can also cause slight drowsiness, especially when using higher doses.
- Risks: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved CBD and has not issued a dosing chart. Therefore, we
do not know what size dosage would be toxic. Any medication or supplement has its risk of a reaction. It is always best, when giving your dog something new, to start out with small amounts and then closely monitor the effects. And always check with your veterinarian first.
