What is CBD Oil
CBD Oil, or cannabidiol, is a compound that is found in cannabis and hemp. CBD is not the psychoactive part of the plant, that is THC. Since CBD is not a hallucinogenic, it is legal in all fifty states, as long as the THC levels, in each individual product, is less than .3%. This is great news to those who are interested in this amazing herb strictly for it’s medical benefits. And oh, the medical benefits!
What are the benefits
With many of the natural remedies that I talk about on this blog, benefits for dogs and people can sometimes vary. In fact, there are a few herbs that are extremely beneficial to people that dogs simply can’t use. Their systems process things a little differently than ours do and can sometimes cause problems. This is why you should always be extremely careful as to what you give to your pet. If it is not labeled for pets, than research it to make sure it is safe.
Now, to my point; the benefits of CBD to dogs are just as vast as the benefits to their owners. This, in my opinion, makes this herb an essential part of my medicine cabinet. I am always especially fond of things that can help all of the creatures in my home, both four-legged and two-legged. Here are some of the benefits:
- Decreases anxiety
- Lowers inflammation
- Reduces bowel disease
- Fights cancer
- Stops seizures
- Relieves pain
- Protects the nervous system
- Fuels the heart
- Reverses memory loss
More information, please
DECREASE IN ANXIETY – means simply that. It has a calming effect on the brain which can decrease anxiety by quite a substantial amount.
LOWERS INFLAMMATION – this is a topic that I talk about, a lot, because it causes so many issues! Using CBD can help with arthritis and IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), just to name a few. Here is the link to my blog on inflammation https://organicholisticdog.com/uncategorized/inflammation-and-chronic-disease/.
FIGHTS CANCER – CBD has actually been shown to have an anti-tumor effect. It has been shown to stop cancer cell growth as well as kill and decrease cancerous tumors. It can even help make conventional cancer treatment methods more effective.
STOPS SEIZURES – on a study done on children who have epilepsy that is non-responsive to anti-seizure medications, CBD oil was shown to decrease seizures in eighty-four percent of them. That is a huge number! It is also not harmful to the kidney and liver like the prescription anti-seizure medications are.
RELIEVES PAIN – this includes pain from so many different areas. In fact, it works so well for pain that scientists are considering making it a new class of pain relievers for treatment of chronic pain.
PROTECTS THE NERVOUS SYSTEM – patients who suffer from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease are at great risk for toxicity of the brain. CBD oil can protect the brain and stop that from happening. It has also been shown to stop brain cell death in older dogs.
FUELS THE HEART – CBD oil has been shown to decrease heart damage caused by stress and anxiety. It can not only repair damage caused by free radicals, but it has been shown to actually increase heart health by lowering blood pressure.
REVERSES MEMORY LOSS – because it can protect the brain and nervous system, it has been proven to decrease memory loss. Ironically, it can even reduce the memory loss caused by the hallucinogenic part of the cannabis plant, THC.
Where do I get this
As with all things, quality is of absolute importance. The only source that I will go to for CBD oil, because I trust them with their non-synthetic, non-gmo, and organic standards, is the company that I have been associated with for over four years. This is the best source, with the highest quality that I have found https://ishoppurium.com/products/cbd-1500-spray .
This, particular, CBD oil has been tested to only have 0.04% of THC in it, which makes it legal to buy and sell in all fifty states. You do not need a prescription for this.
As with all things holistic, I recommend that you start your pooch out with a very small amount and work your way up, as needed. There have been no toxic reactions in people or in dogs, but any change to a diet or system could cause the body to react. To minimize this, please start out slow. I mentioned earlier that I am a big fan of holistic cures that can cross over from two-legged’s to four-legged’s, and this, so far, is my absolute favorite!
Many blessings to you and your four-legged-loves ~ Tammy
