Why CBD Oil is the Ultimate Anti-Inflammatory for Dogs

CBD (cannabidiol) is one of dozens of compounds called cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana plants. Most CBD oils made from hemp are naturally low in THC, the compound in marijuana that causes its psychoactive effects. Without THC, CBD oil is a safe, effective, and natural alternative to NSAIDs and other pharmaceuticals.

Many users are hailing CBD oil as the most powerful anti-inflammatory for dogs found in nature.

What Science Has To Say About CBD Oil As A Natural Anti-Inflammatory For Dogs:

We understand that dogs are family, and responsible pet parents need scientific evidence before starting a new therapeutic product. Below are dog-specific clinical studies on the safety of CBD as well as its efficacy as an anti-inflammatory.

  • In 2016, Colorado State University confirmed that CBD oil is safe for use in dogs. They also found that administering CBD in tincture form is the best delivery method for absorption and bioavailability.
  • A 2018 Cornell University study published in Frontiers in Veterinary Science found CBD to increase the comfort and activity of dogs suffering from arthritis when used twice a day.
  • A randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial from Liberty Leaf Holdings, Ltd. demonstrated that dogs with osteoarthritis receiving CBD oil showed significantly reduced pain and improved functional performance.

How does it work?

It works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (or ECS). This system is made up of specialized receptors throughout the nervous system and body. Cannabinoids such as CBD relay instructions from the brain to the organs and immune system.

If the ECS is out of balance, it can cause chronic anxiety, altered sleep patterns, digestive problems, and of course, inflammatory responses throughout the body. Supplementing with CBD acts upon the endocannabinoid receptors to address imbalances and keep the brain and body in a more healthy state. Helping reduce pain by communicating with pain receptors in the body. Relaxing and calming effect  follows.
