hemp oil for anxious dogs

Despite how new the company is, Gold Bee has a lot of recommendations behind it already (Cleveland Scene, Riverfront Times, VentureBeat, CL Tampa, and CityBeat, for example).

There are many brands selling products with outrageous markups that provide little to no active CBD per dose. Even worse, some companies are sourcing cheap, potentially contaminated hemp from overseas to make their products. A lot of these contaminants can trigger inflammation and make anxiety even worse.

Cannabis Terpenes For Dogs

While there’s no definitive scientific data on using CBD to treat dogs, there’s anecdotal evidence from dog owners suggesting it can treat pain, especially neuropathic pain, as well as helping to control seizures.

The AKC’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Jerry Klein, explains what CBD oil is, what it does for dogs, and its safety concerns and potential side effects.

What Dog Health Problems Can CBD Oil Treat?

According to Dr. Klein, CBD is also used because of its anti-inflammatory properties, cardiac benefits, anti-nausea effects, appetite stimulation, anti-anxiety impact, and for possible anti-cancer benefits, although there’s no conclusive data on this use.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. Dr. Klein says it is essential to note that in most cases, CBD oil does not contain delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. In fact, most CBD products are derived from hemp and not from marijuana.
