How CBD Oil Can Benefit Your Dog
Read on to see how CBD oil can help your dog.
The rush to legalize marijuana practically everywhere, as well as the 2018 Hemp Farming Act essentially made CBD oil and any product with essentially 0.3% THC, off the Federal Government's list of controlled, Schedule 1 substances. Only Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota strictly forbid the sale of CBD oil. In 23 states, CBD oil is open season and in quite a few others, CBD oil is generally allowed.
And suddenly CBD oil is the wild west. What does the Food and Drug Administration have to say about this? Only one drug for epilepsy has been approved by the FDA, and any other substance that included CBD is classified as a non-regulated supplement.
While the FDA does have reservations about the safety of cannabinoids including CBD oil, so long as it is not added to food or sold as a remedy to take care of any diseases, the FDA allows it.
To get around the FDA, CBD oil firms use the two magic words of advertising: "may help."
As in CBD Oil "may eliminate pain," or CBD oil "may help relieve insomnia." And as long as the claims are not definite, but couched in soft language, that's okay.
So with CBD oil so popular with people who claim that it causes relief from pain, it's only natural that people began selling CBD oil for pets.
Here's a typical advertisement for CBD oil for pets: American Shaman’s cbd oil for dogs & cats is formulated with Full Spectrum CBD Oil and Hemp Seed Oil.
This creates a powerful concentration that can be easily administered to your pets for fast results. Apply the CBD tincture drops directly into your pet’s mouth or drop on your pet’s favorite food or snack.
So what do pet owners and vets think? Well, they can give CBD oil to their dog to treat pain or give CBD oil to their pet at night to relieve anxiety.
Most vets say there is nothing wrong with giving a little CBD oil to your pet now and then, but it is only the visual clues your dog gives you whether it works or not.
For example, if the dog was limping before being given the CBD oil but afterward his mobility seems better, congratulations, it seems to be working. On the other hand, if you give your dog CBD oil because he gets anxious, he may have his nerves being calmed down, or he may just be getting sleepy from the CBD oil.
