Treat Your Dog’s Anxiety with CBD Supplements
CBD (cannabidiol) the non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis, or hemp plants can provide your dog with several therapeutic benefits without the dangerous psychoactive effects of the more famous cannabinol THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD is one of 113 cannabinoids, and it treats everything from anxiety and depression to chronic pain.
Much like humans, our dogs can suffer anxiety and stress. The reasons may be different than ours (fireworks, riding in a car, going to the veterinarian), but the effect is the same. The way they express their problems is also different. They may begin showing aggression, bark constantly, or chew on things they shouldn’t.
Other sources of anxiety in dogs, even to the point of PTSD, is being a stray, being rescued from difficult conditions, traveling, moving to a new home, or adjusting to new people or other pets. The reasons for anxiety are numerous. CBD is a viable alternative to anti-anxiety medication, which can have harmful side-effects.
Dogs Are Highly Sensitive
Dogs simply express anxiety differently. They may pant, pace, or bark to express fear.
- CBD helps calm a dog’s fear. Addressing fear in a dog should be a combination of CBD and our ability to understand their fear in the first place. The idea that a dog can just get used to what scares them by the use of overexposure is as problematic as a human getting used to their arachnophobia or acrophobia. CBD is a great way to calm and relax as long as you understand the initial cause.
- CBD helps with separation anxiety. The calming properties of CBD help dogs with separation anxiety and the resulting symptoms. Your dog is focused on you, so, typically they’ll pick up on you leaving them way ahead of when the time arrives that you do leave. Plan for this. Be sure to give your dog a proper dose of CBD early enough for it to take full effect by that time.
- CBD improves the health of aging dogs. People with older animals that suffer from chronic pain, and many times cannot take traditional oral pain medications, have turned to CBD, seeing an improvement in their pet’s comfort and mobility. They either use CBD products in combination with traditional medication, or in place of it.
Like in humans, cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors located throughout the nervous system. CBD maintains a normal healthy state of balance in the body. Dog owners have found that it treats pain, as well as helping to control seizures. There are also anti-inflammatory properties, cardiac benefits, appetite stimulation, anti-nausea properties, a positive effect on anxiety, and possibly anti-cancer benefits as well.
The CHF (Canine Health Foundation) is sponsoring a study through Colorado State University to study CBD for epilepsy in dogs. This will be the first study to gain data on the use of CBD in dogs.
