10 Things You Didn’t Know About Hemp CBD Oil For Dogs!

Hemp CBD Oil For Dogs: What You Might Not Know
The results seem to be in…researchers are turning their attention to this herb and, so
far, they’re finding there’s lots to like. And just as hemp CBD has helped humans, your
dog can reap the same health-boosting (and even life-saving) benefits.
Let’s look at the 10 things you might not know about this often misunderstood herb and
the research that shows its promise in helping dogs with a variety of common health
issues …
1. CBD Is Not Psychoactive
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC
(tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis and it’s this compound that gives
marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are just that … the beneficial CBD
without the THC. And they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. In short, your dog
won’t get “high” from CBD oil … he’ll get the relaxation without the intoxication.
2. CBD Oil Reduces Anxiety
Does your dog suffer from separation anxiety or noise phobias? CBD has been
extensively studied for its effect on stress and anxiety. In humans, it’s been found to:
● Reduce anxiety caused by public speaking
● Reduce anxiety in both healthy people and people with anxiety disorders
● Be effective for panic disorders and post-traumatic stress disorders

3. CBD Can Fights Cancer
CBD and other substances found in hemp and cannabis have been found to have an
anti-tumor effect. CBD has even been shown to stop cancer cells from growing and
increased tumor cell death.
● CBD helps the immune system’s killer cells to cause cancer cell death.
● CBD kills cancer cells by blocking their ability to produce energy.
● CBD’s anti-tumor properties slow and inhibit glioma cell growth.

● CBD can help increase the efficacy of conventional cancer treatment.

4. CBD Can Treat Seizures And Epilepsy
It’s estimated that up to 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. Most dogs with seizures are
put on drugs such as phenobarbital and potassium bromide. While they may help
control the seizures, they can be extremely harmful to your dog’s liver and other organs.
And the drugs don’t work in all cases.
CBD has been shown to work well in drug-resistant epilepsy. In one study, 7 of 8
patients with epilepsy that was resistant to drugs saw a definite improvement within 4 to
5 months of taking CBD.
And a survey of children with treatment-resistant epilepsy found that 84% of the children
taking CBD had a reduction in the frequency of seizures.
5. CBD Relieves Pain
The cannabinoids in CBD work so well for pain that scientists are considering it as a
new class of drug for the treatment of chronic pain. Studies show CBD to be very
effective for:
● Decreasing pain (including neuropathy and nerve-related pain)
● Decreasing the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress (which causes
degeneration and premature aging)
● Decreasing inflammation in acute pancreatitis
● Reducing inflammation
● Reducing intestinal inflammation (associated with irritable bowel disease)

6. CBD Can Help With Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Animal studies show that CBD can prevent colitis (IBD) and restore normal gut motility
in inflammatory bowel disease.
CBD also has antibiotic properties, including Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA).
7. CBD Reduces Chronic Inflammation And Autoimmune
Disease

CBD has been shown to decrease the production and release of inflammatory cytokines
that can cause allergies, hypersensitivities and autoimmunity. It can also suppress
something called Th17 dominance, which is a major cause of autoimmune diseases.
CBD also inhibits the production of inflammatory macrophages and decreases chronic
inflammation.
CBD is also a powerful antioxidant that’s shown to be more powerful than vitamins C
and E.
8. CBD Can Protect The Nervous System And Help With
Neurodegenerative Diseases
For dogs suffering from degenerative myelopathy and other spine and nerve issues,
CBD shows a lot of promise. It’s been shown to help patients with Amyotrophic Lateral
Sclerosis(ALS), Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by protecting the brain cells from
toxicity.
For senior dogs, CBD has been shown to protect the brain from cell death caused by
free radicals and toxins.
9. CBD Increases Appetite And Helps With Nausea
If you have trouble getting your dog to eat, CBD may help. The National Cancer Institute
reports that CBD increases appetite and carries this extra benefit, in addition to
controlling cancer.
In animal studies, CBD has also been shown to help with vomiting and nausea, even
when they’re the result of toxins and drugs.
10. CBD Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Just as veterinarian Dr. Bassingthwaighte discovered, CBD has been linked to heart
health. Studies show it can reduce the damage from damaged blood vessels and
irregular heart rates, protect blood vessels from damage and dilate the arteries, and
reduce heart rate and blood pressure associated with stress and anxiety.
