There is always an array of good and bad stories thrown out whenever we bring up the topic of pets and cannabis. There’s this one specific horror story we’ll never forget about a friend’s puggle who got into 75 mg of cannabis by way of a chocolate truffle. He was OK, but he acted like he was drunk for almost 48-hours. Though this was traumatic for all parties involved, the real tragic story is that more people don’t know how valuable the right dose of cannabis can be for their dogs. While all animals could probably find some benefit from cannabis oil, our experience is with dosing dogs. Since animals can’t tell us how they’re feeling, don’t dose a cat or reptile the same as a dog until doing the proper research.
As for dogs, cannabis is so beneficial to our canine friends that there are now pet-centric CBD and hemp products on the market. There are a couple of ways that our four legged friends can enjoy CBD, and sometimes, in very small doses, THC. Hemp oil is generally high in CBD and lower in THC, as such it is the most suitable product for the family pet. They’re also easier to administer since the oil can be dropped right over the pup’s food. But what will hemp oil do for our pet? Let’s check it out.
Our pets can benefit from cannabis just as much as we can. Young or old, hemp oil can help a dog’s life maintain balance and serenity. There are some great hemp oils specifically for animals, but if those are hard to find most pure hemp oils should suffice.Posted: Wednesday, July 26th, 11:20am a year ago
