Here’s How CBD Can Help Your Pet

Many Canadians are using CBD for pets. Why is this?

As it turns out, it’s not just humans that have cannabinoid receptors, but all animals. This means CBD has the same exact benefits for pets as it does for humans! So what are the benefits of CBD for pets?

In this guide, we will cover the benefits of CBD for ageing pets with pain and inflammation, and for cats and dogs suffering from stress, anxiety or sleep issues.


All-Natural & Effective Relief for Pets.

1) Safe & Effective

CBD is different from THC. CBD is non-psychoactive so it won’t get your pet high. Rather, CBD will simply help your pet relax and improve their quality of life.


2) Pain & Joint Relief

As they age, issues like arthritis, hip-dysplasia & general pain or inflammation are all too common for pets. Such chronic issues can drastically impact your pet’s well-being and transform them from that happy bouncy love-ball to a pet that is quietly suffering in great pain.

Fortunately, CBD has been shown to have numerous benefits for pets for relieving inflammation, pain, and arthritis.

In one 2018 study, researchers gave dogs doses of 2 or 8 mg of CBD per kg of weight, with about 80 percent of dogs showing noticeable improvement in their mobility and pain. 

A 2020 study found CBD to bring noticeable improvement in mobility and quality of life for dogs with osteoarthritis

Overall, CBD for pets could be a safe, effective and natural way to relieve your pet’s pain and inflammation.


3) Soothing Relief for Anxious/Stressed Pets

CBD can also help your pet relax in stressful situations. Going to the vet for a regular checkup or giving them that super necessary bath? Not only can CBD for pets be useful for them, but it can help you to calm down and manage a stressed out pet.

CBD has been shown to be an effective source of relief for anxiety in people, it has the same benefits for calming and soothing your pet.


4) Better Sleep for Pets

Chronic pain, environmental stress and anxiety can all have negative impacts on your pet’s ability to sleep.

As with people, CBD can also help your Furry Friends with getting to sleep

In 2013, one study showed that CBD significantly increased the total sleep times for pets who consume 10 to 40 mg per kilogram of CBD.

If your pet is struggling with severe pain and has trouble sleeping, larger doses of CBD could be an effective and natural way to help them sleep better.

Recommended Dose for Pets:

Generally, pets should have 1-5mg per 10lbs depending on their ailment. If your pet is not responding with lower doses, we recommend a maximum of 8mg per 10lbs. Pets need much less than humans so start small!
