CBD FOR YOUR DOGS: Everything You Need to Know

They are more than just a pet - they're family. With CBD you can enrich and extend the life of your beloved furry friend. Don't know where to get started? We've got you covered. 

Cannabis oil can be used to treat seizures, nausea, stress, anxiety, arthritis, back pain, symptoms of cancer, and gastrointestinal issues, among other health conditions in dogs.” - petmd.com

CBD works for dogs because, as with all mammals, every dog has an endocannabinoid system. This system affects all parts of your dog’s body – their skin, mood, brain, and beyond. 

As with humans, the endocannabinoid system is affected by cannabinoids, which are the active ingredients in cannabis and hemp. 

CBD is one cannabinoid that can affect your dog’s endocannabinoid system for the better.


CBD can treat a number of canine ailments. 

Studies have shown that CBD can treat a number of ailments in both humans and dogs.

Recent research has shown that CBD can help dogs in the following ways:

  • A study conducted in 2012 indicated that CBD, which is a natural anti-inflammatory, improved the skin of dogs with inflammatory skin conditions
  • A 2017 study looked at the effects of CBD oil on epileptic dogs. The study found that the dogs who had CBD oil had fewer seizures than those who had a placebo. It found that CBD was an effective way to treat seizure-prone dogs.
  • A 2018 study on dogs with osteoarthritis found that CBD oil reduced pain and helped them be more active than usual.

In addition to the above studies, a recent survey of US veterinarians showed that many vets felt that CBD was an effective treatment for managing pain, relieving anxiety, and decreasing the frequency and severity of seizures.

Of course, CBD oil might be able to treat even more conditions than those mentioned above.

We know that CBD has been shown to reduce inflammationdepression, and pain, among other things.
