Sadly, there isn’t a lot (yet), however a study done by Colorado State University found that healthy dogs overall reacted to CBD really well. Although, initial studies of CBD were focused on the benefits for humans, we share quite a few similarities with our four-legged companions that they may enjoy the benefits of CBD as well.
The Basics of CBD
Let’s start with what CBD is. CBD, or cannabidiol, is chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It contains essentially no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is what causes the unmistakable feeling of being high due to its psychoactive properties. If you’re looking for that high right now, check out our wide selection of THC products and same-day weed delivery. We got you.
A very important thing to note is that according to The Anti-Cruelty Society, THC can be toxic to animals, and it is known that canines are 4 to 6 times more prone to THC toxicity than humans. So, when shopping for CBD oils for your pets, choose from the CBD line that has virtually no THC included like MOTA CBD Tincture and/or Faded CBD Tincture (a pharmaceutical grade solvent-free organic MCT oil).
CBD benefits for your pets
As mentioned before, humans and animals have similarities. Multiple studies have explain that the endocannabinoid system that is present in both the human and animal bodies with which CBD reacts. In short, because we have similar features in our body, our pets (particularly mammals) may enjoy the benefits of CBD.
