What exactly is CBD?
Its full name is cannabidiol, and it is a compound found in the cannabis plant that is primarily related to cannabis. CBD Oil or Cannabidiol is a plant extract obtained from hemp or cannabis. Structurally, CBD is a crystalline cannabinoid (C21H30O2) known to have psychoactive and therapeutic properties. Cannabis contains another compound called tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.
This is the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana and what makes it high for people. Despite being derived from the same plant, CBD has no psychoactive effects on humans or animals and is increasingly being used for human health problems. CBD dogs can be beneficial to treat skin allergies and skin diseases.
What are the health benefits of CBD for dogs?
CBD reduces pain:
CBD has been reported to be effective for several types of pain, including inflammation and nerve pain. It can also help relieve the effects of arthritis by aiding joint pain and mobility.
CBD can help reduce anxiety:
If your dog barks excessively, acts destructively or looks too agitated when you leave the house, he is most likely experiencing separation anxiety.
Just like in humans, CBD can help reduce anxiety so your dog will be calmer when you're away from home. It can also help reduce the anxiety associated with noise phobia so that your dog doesn't shrink whenever there's a thunderstorm or fireworks nearby.
