CBD is rapidly gaining popularity for use in pets, but there is a lot of confusion as to whether it is legal or not, and the differences between hemp, CBD, hemp, marijuana, and THC. Knowing whether a product is safe, effective, and legal for your dog before purchasing and using it.
What is CBD oil?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid or specific component that is extracted from the hemp plant. Once extracted, CBD can be turned into oil, which the dog can take orally. It often contains coconut, hemp, olive, avocado, or palm oil, which acts as a carrier oil.
Is the CBD in marijuana?
Since the amount of THC as well as CBD will vary from plant to species, some types of marijuana will contain CBD, but most growers are more concerned about THC. Marijuana is not safe for dogs.
Why is CBD oil popular in dogs?
We are constantly searching for new ingredients that can help our dogs, as pet owners want to find solutions to the problems their dogs may face. Products sometimes have negative side effects or simply do not provide the level of support the dog needs, so alternative solutions can quickly grow in popularity if they are proven to be useful. Efficiency, price, safety, ease of use and other factors determine whether the dog owner decides to use the item, but safety and effectiveness should ultimately exceed this list.
CBD oil has been widely discussed in the media and among pet owners after people’s success stories became known. This has dramatically increased its popularity, but safety and efficacy are still being studied for various uses in dogs.
Why is CBD oil good for dogs?
CBD oil has been used in dogs to relieve pain, relieve seizures, relieve anxiety, help with nausea, support cancer; promote heart health, stimulate appetite, and support inflammation. For most of these applications, very few dog studies have been conducted, but studies are ongoing. Some studies suggest the potential benefits of CBD oil for dogs with cramps and pain.
Selection of CBD Petroleum Product for Dogs
The most difficult part of extracting CBD is getting a constant source of plants. Many products are incompatible in terms of the number of CBDs, so providing the appropriate administration can be difficult. Manufacturers are working on the production of products that contain a constant amount of CBD, so consumers should look for a company with strict quality control departments to ensure that the products meet labeling requirements.
CBD is also considered a scheduled drug if it is not derived from hemp. Because of this, you should buy hemp oil that contains CBD instead of a product labeled CBD oil; which is actually illegal. This will ensure that CBD is obtained from hemp, and not from other types of hemp. This also ensures that the administered product does not contain more than 0.3 percent of the psychoactive component of THC. The legality of hemp oil will also vary from state to state; so consumers should check the latest legislation in their state before buying hemp oil containing CBD.
