Cannabis consumption is at an all-time high – not just for humans, but for dogs too. This is good news for all of us dog lovers, especially because that whole 7 to 1 ratio is a problem so we’ll do anything to extend the lifespan of our furry companions. 

 


A quick Google search of “cannabis products for pets” will yield dozens of results. There are several reputable brands out there who have successfully developed hemp and CBD products for Max and his friends. Dogs have an endocannabinoid system too, so it’s wrong to think that they can’t benefit from cannabis in the same way we do.

 

 

There’s a ton of CBD products out there for dogs and they won’t get high, but how exactly can they help?

 

 

Slow Down Aging And Protect Brain Health

 

 

If you’ve ever witnessed your beloved dog growing old and slowing down, you know how heartbreaking it is. It can’t be helped; just like humans, dogs will age and slow down too both physically and mentally. But with some cannabis you can help make their golden years a little more bearable while helping to make them strong.

 

 

What we know of as Alzheimer’s disease is known as Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome in animals. This condition causes animals to experience significantly reduced functioning especially in the cannabinoid receptors found in the brain. Aging animals also have more microglia and plaque deposits in the brain, which lead to inflammation.

 

 

Since cannabinoids are anti-inflammatory, have antioxidant and neuroprotective properties, this helps protects brain cells of your dog.  One study showed that when rats were administered with cannabinoids, they performed better in tests analyzing their mental ability despite the presence of plaque. The researchers found that the presence of cannabinoids helped activate the microglia which led to a decrease in inflammation and helped preserve their mental function.

Anti-Anxiety

 

Pets can suffer from anxiety too. The biggest factors that contribute to stress on pets is when they have to leave home or separate from their owners, encountering strange situations or people, thunder, fireworks, and more. If you know how debilitating anxiety can be, imagine what it’s like for our pets. Giving your pet cannabis products made specially for them right before you expose them to their known triggers will help them more effectively deal with their anxiety.       

 

 

Anxiety is one of the most well-documented conditions that cannabis can cure. In a 2014 study conducted by the Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research: “the anxiolytic and antipsychotic properties of CBD stand out. CBD’s anxiolytic effects are apparently similar to those of approved drugs to treat anxiety.”

 

 

Autoimmune Conditions

 

 

Dogs are prone to disorders affecting the immune system, especially as they get older. These disorders include lupus, retinal degeneration syndrome, anemia, thyroiditis, and pemphigus. Cannabinoids impact almost every aspect of the immune system, and in the medical community it is believed that inflammation triggers immune responses. When your pooch has cannabinoids in his system that can decrease inflammation, this can be a preventive measure in slowing down these conditions later on in life.

 

 

cannabis for diabetes

Diabetes

 

 

Both cats and dogs are vulnerable to developing diabetes too. In animals, this condition is much more difficult to treat due to the lack of options available for treating diabetic animals. However if you have CBD products on hand this can help. Inflammation yet again is the culprit in diabetes, which CBD will be beneficial in preventing and treating.

 

 

cannabis for arthritis

Arthritis

 

 

Arthritis is a common condition affecting both cats and dogs. Even your pets can suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. Giving your pets CBD medication can make the symptoms of arthritis more tolerable, just like how it helps humans. CBD products work effectively in targeting arthritis because this is a condition caused and exacerbated by inflammation, which this cannabinoid is particularly powerful at addressing. Additionally, CBD also helps protect joints from further damage by inhibiting the release of tumor necrosis which is responsible for destruction and inflammation in joints.

 

 

Infections

 

 

CBD and many other cannabinoids in the plant have powerful antibacterial properties that can benefit your pet by providing them with added protection from common bacteria especially the staphylococcus aureaus commonly known as MRSA. This condition also afflicts humans, but it’s just as painful and debilitating for pets.

 

 

cancer and cannabis

Cancer

 

Cannabis has been helpful in preventing and treating cancer, as well as making chemotherapy treatments more manageable. The same goes for dogs, who are also at risk for developing cancer. Since 1998, it’s been well-known that cannabis is useful in inducing cell death among cancer cells, even in rare cases including glioma. Giving your pets cannabis products can help prevent and treat the big C as well.

 

dog bong

Bone Health

 

 

Even your pets can suffer from bone loss and broken bones especially as they age. CB2 receptors are also found in the skeletal system, and when you supplement your dog’s diet with cannabis-infused products you can help minimize bone loss and encourage bone formation. Studies show that CBD was effective in preventing bone loss among older rodents, and it also helped speed up the healing process even after fractures in treated animals.
