100% Organic CBD Oil for dogs and cats
Source CBD oil is 100% Organic and non-GMO. There are only two ingredients: Organic CBD Hemp Oil and Organic Coconut Oil. Coconut oil works as the perfect carrier oil for CBD because of its saturated fat content. Cannabinoids can dissolve molecularly more efficiently when mixed with an oil with a high lipid content, delivering more molecules to our cells for absorption. CBD has been the subject of a lot of research studies and has been found to:
• Reduce seizures and epilepsy
• Stop tumor growth and cause cancer cell death
• Reduce anxiety
• Relieve pain and inflammation
• Protect the nervous system and help with neurodegenerative diseases
• Reduce nausea
• Promote heart health
Source CBD oil carries a certificate of analysis and, unlike many other hemp products, guarantees a high amount of beneficial CBD without a significant amount of THC or harmful terpenes. Source CBD oil is safe and well-tolerated by most dogs, even when given in high doses or for an extended period of time. Dogs do not build up a tolerance to CBD.
Source CBD oil is full-spectrum hemp oil. That means it's rich not just in CBD oil, but it contains other important cannabinoids that occur naturally in full-spectrum hemp including CBC and CBG.
CBC has been studied for its cancer-fighting activities, its ability to block pain and inflammation, and its positive effect on brain cells.
CBG is also being studied for its medicinal use. It's been shown to decrease inflammation in the digestive tract, protect nerve cells and the eyes, support healthy bladder function and, of course, fit cancer cells.
CBD Oil For Dogs With Arthritis
CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory that doesn't carry the same risk of side effects as drugs. It works by binding to CB1 receptors in the brain. These receptors stimulate the immune system to reduce inflammation.
CBD also binds to CB2 receptors that are found in the nervous and immune systems. When this happens, the body may produce more cannabinoids naturally, and this helps reduce inflammation even more and reduce the pain associated with it. CB1 receptors also change the way the brain responds to pain.
In fact, researchers at Cornell University found that dogs taking CBD for arthritis showed an increase in activity and a decrease in pain. Some of the common ways to use CBD as an anti-inflammatory in dogs include:
• Hip and elbow dysplasia
• Sprains and strains
• Torn ligaments (CCL)
• After surgery
CBD Oil For Dogs With Cancer
Half of adult dogs today will sadly get cancer. Cancer is a massive health challenge for dogs, especially if they undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
Cancer researchers are always looking for new ways to treat cancer and release the pain and nausea that can go with it. And CBD has been extensively researched as a cancer-fighting substance.
A study in mice showed that CBD slowed the growth of mammary cancer cells. And a 2018 study found that CBD increased survival time in mice with pancreatic cancer.
Other animal studies also show CBD oil has cancer-fighting abilities and can slow the growth of tumors. Another study also shows cancer cells can become more sensitive to treatment with CBD ... which means CBD can increase the effectiveness of conventional cancer treatments.
CBD kills cancer cells by blocking their ability to produce energy. It also stimulates the immune system to produce killer cells that cause death in cancer cells. Researchers also found that CBD blocks a cannabinoid receptor called GPR55. This is important because GPR55 increased the growth rate of cancer cells in mice.
CBD oil can also help with nausea associated with many cancer treatments. Another study showed a significant reduction in cancer-related pain.
CBD Oil For Dogs With Seizures And Epilepsy
It's estimated that about 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. They can be terrifying for both dogs and their humans... and they can cause anxiety.
Most vets treat epilepsy and seizures with antiepileptic drugs, such as phenobarbital or potassium bromide. But these drugs are extremely harmful to your dog's liver and other organs. Even if the drugs don't cause unmanageable side effects, they don't always work...
So researchers at Colorado State University were excited when they studied CBD as a treatment for epilepsy in dogs. A whopping 89% of dogs that received the CBD had a reduction in seizures.
In human trials, CBD was found to work in patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. In one study, 7 out of 8 patients saw a marked improvement within 4 to 5 months. CBD can reduce the frequency and severity of seizures because of how it interacts with the endocannabinoid system.
It's believed that seizures are caused by abnormal electric charges of the neurons in the nervous system... and CBD can bind to receptors in the brain that researchers speculate can improve the functioning of the nervous system.
CBD Oil For Dogs With Anxiety
Anxiety is a common reason dog owners turn to CBD. Anxiety can appear in different forms, including:
• Noise phobia
• Separation anxiety
Of course, there an anti-anxiety drug available... but CBD is being studied for anxiety because it doesn't carry dangerous side effects. Most human users of CBD take it for pain, anxiety, and depression. Over a third of these users report that CBD worked "very well by itself."
CBD has even been used to manage anxiety and insomnia in children with post-traumatic stress disorder. And animal studies show its antidepressant effects aren't just for humans.
And CBD can work quickly if given directly in the mouth when your dog is stressed. It typically works within 5 to 20 minutes. However, CBD appears to most beneficial for anxiety when given over a period of time. So if your dog is prone to stress, a daily dose might be best.
A 2012 study looked at stress in rats that were exposed to cats. The rats given repeated doses of CBD had less anxiety than those who were given a single dose. Researchers aren't certain how CBD relieves stress and anxiety, but it's thought that it can help regulate serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone that regulates mood, social behavior, digestion, sleep, and appetite.
CBD Oil For Pain In Dogs
Probably the most promising research on CBD is that done on pain. From nerve pain to arthritis, it works well. Without the harmful side effects of pain medications. CBD binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and nervous system and this helps change the way your dog's brain perceives pain.
Plus, CBD can help manage the other symptoms that accompany pain, such as sleeplessness and nausea. CBD can also help manage acute pain from injuries.
CBD Oil For Allergies In Dogs
Allergies and skin conditions are on the rise in dogs. And they're difficult to treat. The endocannabinoid system is also found in the skin... and that's good news for dogs with allergies. CBD can help relieve dry and itchy skin. And it can promote the growth of new healthy skin cells. CBD can be given internally for allergies, or externally for hot spots or interdigital cysts.
