Research has proven that CBD is a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of debilitating conditions in humans, but what about for our pets too? Can they enjoy the same pain and inflammation relieving benefits from using products that contain CBD that we can?
While existing research is promising, much more research on CBD use in pets is needed. Since marijuana and hemp, the plants that CBD is derived from, have been illegal federally for so long (and still are to a degree), researchers have had a hard time getting approval to study CBD until just recently. Were it not for individual states legalizing and authorizing studies of marijuana, hemp, and its components, we would likely still be in the dark today about their life-changing benefits.
Even though there isn’t tons of formal research out there, anecdotal evidence is clear: CBD has significant benefits for pets similar to those shown in humans. Pet owners report improvements in:
- Pain levels, especially neuropathic pain
- Seizure activity
- Nausea and vomiting
This has huge implications for pets experiencing crippling diseases such as:
- Heart disease
- Bone tumors
- Eye disorders
- Sleep disorders
- Joint pain
More research and experimentation will likely show that CBD is a safe and effective treatment for dozens of conditions, improving pet quality of life well beyond what is currently possible.
