While working at Theorem Cannabis, I learned the benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) hearing story after story of relief from symptoms and stress. Many patients were finding it helpful to their animals as well. Holistic vets, adoption shelters and pet lovers are reporting the benefits of CBD oil for dogs and cats in their care. After some research on CBD for pets and the relief CBD can provide for dogs, we decided to try it.
I selected a CBD oil (Companion Tincture from Fairwinds) to mix in with Loki's dinner, and he ate it up with no issue. Within 3-4 days there was a noticeable reduction in the redness of his skin. After about a week we began to see the regrowth of fur where there had been none before. The CBD was having a restorative effect and relieving Loki’s need to aggravate his skin.
CBD for Pets Dosing Basics:
DISCLAIMER! While THC can be fun for humans - animals do not experience the psychoactive properties in the same way that people do. Limit pet consumption to CBD products produced from reliable farms with high quality crops. Know your grow - look for hemp or CBD forward strains grown with quality practices. We aren't saying "organic" weed (because only the Feds exercise that classification) but darn near close.
