Oils that are CBD dominant are referred to as CBD oils. However, the exact concentrations and ratio of CBD to THC can vary depending on the product and manufacturer. Regardless, CBD oils have been shown to offer a range of health benefits that could potentially improve the quality of life for patients around the world. I think it’s fair to say that we know more now than we ever did before about a lot of the things in which hemp seed oil benefits everyone that uses it. All of the benefits are as of yet unknown, more information is coming out every day, but here are just a few that I think are very important to me and my dog.
Hemp oil or CBD is said to the effective in cancer treatment.
Studies have shown that CBD may be valuable in the treatment of cancer in a number of different ways. CBD as well as some of the other compounds found in cannabis have an anti- tumor effect and can hasten the death of tumor cells in both colon cancer and leukemia. In addition, investigations have shown that CBD can be used to stop the spread in cervical cancer cells. It is important to note that the vast majority of CBD and cancer studies are pre-clinical, meaning they’re not conducted on human or even mammalian test subjects, and the findings – while promising – should not be construed as conclusive proof that CBD can cure cancer.
Food is necessary for everybody, especially when the body is healing. Some illnesses decrease the appetite to the point of preventing the body from healing itself. CBD stimulates appetite, allowing the body to heal.
Relieves Pain in many forms
Research indicates that CBD can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain from conditions such as arthritis, joint pain, rheumatism, diabetes, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS). It has also been used to relieve seizures, alleviate anxiety, and help with shaking. It has been used to treat skin conditions, parasitic infections, bacterial infections, and the list just keeps growing.
By activating various receptors in the endocannabinoid system, experts report that humans treated with CBD experience a clinically significant reduction in pain related symptoms with little to no adverse side effects.
As a natural alternative to traditional pain medications, CBD creates a compelling case for pet owners that aren’t able to afford Western medicine for their pets.The FDA has warned that pet owners should be cautious when it comes to purchasing and using medical cannabis. So don’t be afraid to request current third-party lab test results from CBD pet product vendors! Reputable companies will happily provide them. .
CBD is itself non-toxic, and so the most important thing to keep in mind is that “overdosing” on CBD will not result in fatalities. The most commonly reported side-effects for CBD in animals are sedation and over-active appetites.
Medical marijuana is different from medical cannabis
THC and oils containing it can be very dangerous for a pet.
Where medical marijuana is legal, it is unlawful to administer to pets. To counter this several bills in state legislatures aim to make it legal for pet owners to provide this medicine to their sick animals, but not all states have progressive view on cannabis for pets.
In some states where medical marijuana is legal, there has been a substantial increase in the number of pets going to the emergency room due to the toxic effects of THC. In most cases, these emergency room visits happen due to either to negligence (for example, a dog gets into a bag of edibles) or to pet owners’ general ignorance about THC’s effects on pets.
Due to the lack of information available on medical cannabis, it is rather easy for a pet owner to overdose their pets. While medical marijuana has been shown to be beneficial in VERY small amounts, the use of medical marijuana that’s high in THC can be toxic or even deadly for most pets. Fortunately, overdose is generally not a concern when using CBD products – especially hemp CBD products that are specifically manufactured to have little-to-no THC at all.
As of this writing, the American Veterinary Medical Association hasn’t taken an official stance on medical marijuana for pets. However, there have been many successful cases of the use of medical cannabis to help pets with diseases or illnesses.
