Our health and well-being, and that of our family and friends, is pretty much, universally, number one on our list of life priorities. This also includes our ‘furry friends’ and farm animal family. So, since we know the benefits of CBD for ourselves, it is only natural that we would also treat our animals with CBD oil, and nutritional hemp products.
It is interesting to discover that this was also true in ancient civilizations and throughout modern history. As a matter of fact, in earlier times, before the somewhat recent prohibition of cannabis, animals would also treat themselves by eating both wild and cultivated cannabis or hemp. After all, animals, in the wild, do naturally know how to care for themselves.
Anyone that grows cannabis and has a dog or cat can pretty much testify that they will eat the leaves, especially the little tender ones, and keep coming back for more.
The ancient Greeks used cannabis to treat their animals. They used it as an anti-inflammatory treatment for cleaning wounds and to prevent intestinal parasites.
Prior to the 1937 prohibition in the United States, hundreds of treatments containing cannabis oil were sold for farm animals. These remedies were used for the same illnesses and disorders in animals that medical cannabis is used for today in humans. The antispasmodic, sedative, analgesic properties of cannabis provided superior natural treatments for an array of disorders. In other words, we already knew the truth about the powerful use of cannabis. Don’t you find it interesting that we forgot for a while?
Flash forward! We remembered! We are reunited with cannabis and its healing properties and benefits for all of us mammals, furry friends included.
The cannabidiol CBD has taken center stage for the wellbeing of our beloved pets.
Anecdotal evidence is coming in daily that verifies the safety of CBD and efficacy of both treating disorders and providing a baseline homeostasis in our pet’s bodies. This homeostasis or balance is the key to maintaining optimum health for our pet friends.
Treating your dog or cat can be as easy as giving your doggie or kitty a delicious treat that promises to please and heal. Quality dog and cat treats state the CBD content and other ingredients along with the recommended dosage. The most important consideration is the purity of the products and the proper dosage for the condition or supplement. The dosage is based on the concentration of CBD along with the weight and condition of the animal. If you feel unsure of how to dose your pet, there are many Holistic Veterinarians that are knowledgeable advocates for CBD treatments that will be happy to help you.
