As CBD’s popularity soars, the cannabis extract has found a home in many products. More interesting is that CBD’s fan base has grown beyond the human world. Lately, CBD is a common commodity in the canine world.
As in humans, CBD has shown promising results for managing health conditions in pets. Researchers have found that animals and humans have a similar endocannabinoid system (ECS) – an internal system responsible for functions including appetite, sleep, mood, to mention a few.
CBD is said to bind to ECS receptors to offer health gains, including pain relief, mood boost, increased appetite, etc.
Many pet parents have turned to CBD oil to improve their dog’s wellness. While many fear that their dogs may reject CBD for its sourness, CBD-infused treats may be a lifesaver.
How Can CBD Treats Help My Dog?
As mentioned, CBD may offer your furry friend as much as it promises humans.
CBD treats for dogs, and CBD oils can help you handle some pet conditions, including:
- Digestion problems
- Joint pain
- Mild to acute pain
- Stress and anxiety
- Chronic inflammation
CBD Treat for Dogs’ Dosage
As with humans, there is no one-size-fits-all dosage for CBD-infused treats for canines. Dog’s weight, age, breed, and specific conditions are factors that may influence CBD’s effect on your dog and the required dosage.
However, the rule of thumb says begin small. For pets, you may begin with a 3mg dosage or less. Administer this dosage consistently for about a week and adjust accordingly, based on effect.
CBD Treats for Dogs Vs. CBD oil for dogs?
It’s natural to get confused about whether to opt for CBD-infused treats or CBD oil.
Generally, CBD oil is thought to offer more efficiency. Human-based research shows that sublingual dosage–placed beneath the tongue – is the most efficient way to dose CBD oil.
While there is yet no substantial supportive evidence, some experts perceive sublingual administration may have similar higher efficiency for pets.
But what if your canine detests the earthy CBD oil taste? Then CBD treats will most-likely cut it. CBD-infused dog treats are to pets what CBD-infused gummies are to humans.
Interestingly, these treats come in different exciting flavors, which makes them a lot easier to administer, compared to CBD oils.
Although some theories claim the baking process may reduce the compounds’ effect, firsthand experience from pet parents attests to the efficacy of CBD treats. Even, some say they are as effective as CBD oil. More research may be needed to substantiate these claims.
However, when scouting, prefer products from trusted CBD producers and/or vendors like Mary Janes’ CBD Dispensary.
