Cannabinoid (CBD) products have been widely used all over the world for some time and are becoming popular in Lithuania. That is why we are increasingly receiving inquiries from pet owners about the use of CBD for pets. You can find a lot of information on the Internet about the use of CBD oil for dogs, cats, or even horses. And the most frequently asked question is, is CBD oil safe for pets?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the many chemical compounds found in the hemp plant called cannabinoids. Unlike another popular cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is non-intoxicating, legal and completely safe to use.
In Lithuania, the permissible rate of THC in hemp products is currently up to 0.2%, but veterinarians warn that products containing THC should not be given to animals at all. In the CBD hemp oils produced by HEMP SPECTRUM BALTICS, the THC active ingredient is completely removed to 0.0%, so we can reassure you that these oils are completely safe for your pets. Well, a lot can be said about the positive effects of CBD on pets. But the main reasons why pet owners are looking for this product are as follows:
Pain relief. CBD can have an analgesic effect, so it can be beneficial for animals suffering from pain or inflammation.
Antioxidant properties. CBD is an antioxidant that can help the body fight free radicals and protect against cell damage.
Sedative effects. CBD can have a sedative effect that helps reduce stress and anxiety, which can be beneficial for animals experiencing various states of fear or stress.
Appetite Stimulation. Some animals may experience decreased appetite due to pain or other health problems. CBD can help stimulate appetite.
Immune system support. Studies show that CBD can have a positive effect on the immune system by contributing to its regulation.
It is important to mention that before giving CBD to an animal, a veterinarian should be consulted. He will be able to determine the right dose and help evaluate possible side effects or interactions with other medications.
