FAQ - The most often asked questions related to treating small animals with Cannabadiols
Can CBD's Really Help My Dog? It depends on what your dog is having trouble with. Understanding how CBDs can help requires understanding the endocannabinoid system in the body. Nearly the entire Animal Kingdom contains endocannabinoid receptors with two major receptor types. CB1 receptors primarily influence brain function, and CB2 receptors are primarily associated with the immune system. CBDs are plant based chemicals that mimic naturally occurring molecules and can therefore bind to these natural receptors. For example when injury occurs, it hurts initially, but then natural anandamine and 2-AG are released into the damaged tissue to prevent excessive nerve cell firing and it ultimately hurts less. because CBDs can bind these same receptors, they can also reduce nerve firing mitigating pain. That is why CBD is often used to address chronic pain in Dogs and other small pets.
Similarly, in the brain, receptors in the bran are associated with neural plasticity, suggesting that cannabinoids may directly mediate one's willingness to accept new thoughts and behaviors allowing adaption to new situations. In other words, mitigate anxiety. In some ways you can think of the endocannabinoid system as the control system between when to accept and when to resist. There are time when we need to be open to learning and trying new things and times when our bodies naturally resist the unknown (its a protective-defense mechanism). Naturally we are more open in youth and that declines with age. In a pre-civilized world anxiety could definitely save your life, but in the modern world where we are not likely to run into a bear or snake if we venture into the unknown anxiety may no longer have the same evolutionary value. https://www.marijuanabreak.com/endocannabinoid-system
My Dog Has Seizures, Can CBD Help? A 2019 study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association indicated that there was a direct correlation between reduction in seizure frequency and concentration of CBD in the blood. Their study administered the CBD at 2.5 mg/kg every 12 hours. The amount of CBD in the blood varied between animals suggesting that different dogs (possibly associated with breed) can have differing levels of absorption into the blood when taken orally. The take home from the study is that CBD taken orally can reach the blood stream, although in varying degrees, and that it does have bioactivity associated with dose. *https://avmajournals.avma.org/doi/10.2460/javma.254.11.1301
Does CBD Really Help with Arthritis? In a clinical trial published in Frontiers in Veterinary Science in 2018, researchers found that 2mg/kg every 12 hours has a statistically significant decrease in pain and increase in activity in dogs with osteoarthritis. *https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fvets.2018.00165/full
Does CBD Really Help with Anxiety? CBD appears to interact with receptors that control our willingness to try new things and be in new situations. Anxiety is a defense mechanism designed to protect, but all animals need to learn and try new things in order to grow and so a system has evolved to control when we are open to learning and when we resist the unknown. There is a review published in the brazilian Journal of Psychiatry that documents much of the testing of CBD's effects on anxiety in animals and humans (entire animal kingdom uses the same endocannabinoid system).
Is CBD Safe for my Dog? One of the earliest studies of CBD in dogs injected 45 and 90 mg of CBD directly into the blood stream of a dog. These very high doeses were well tolerated by the animals and did not show adverse events. Other studies at traditional doses (2 and 2.5 mg/kg every 12 hours) have also noted minimal adverse events (http://dmd.aspetjournals.org/content/16/3/469.long). The same study determined the half life of the drug to be 9 hours (meaning it took 9 hours for half of the CBD to be cleared from the animal. They also noted that oral bioavailability was between 13 and 19% suggesting that for an equivalent dog to reach even these levels, they would need to consume upwards of 400 mg (more than an entire bottle) at one time. However, this is heavily influenced by species (dog vs cat), breed, weight, and other medications, and liver/kidney function. Consult your Veterinarian for better guidance.
I'm worried about overdose, what should I do? One of the best ways to prevent an overdose is to store your CBD product in a different location from your regular pet food or treats and make sure you put it away immediately after administration. If you are concerned that your pet got more than intended, consult your veterinarian on what behaviors to keep an eye out for.
