Blog ~ A Few Words from Dr. Goodpet - CBD for cats

Posted by

1). CBD Oil Fights Cancer

- Studies have shown that CBD and other chemical compounds found in hemp and cannabis have a strong anti-tumor effect. The National Library of Medicine has found that CBD can even stop cancer cells from growing while also increasing tumor cell death.

2). CBD Oil Helps Relieve Pain & Anxiety

Is separation anxiety or any type of physical pain a major issue for your furbaby? Well CBD has been extensively studied for its effect on stress, anxiety and chronic pain. Here are a few studies done on humans that illustrate how effective CBD can be in tackling these problems:

- Reduces anxiety caused by public speaking

- Reduces anxiety in both healthy people and people with anxiety disorders

- Decreases pain (including neuropathy and nerve-related pain). 

- Reduces inflammation

- Reduces intestinal inflammation (associated with irritable bowel disease)

3). CBD Oil Reduces Inflammation

- CBD shrinks the production and release of inflammatory cytokines that can cause allergies, hypersensitivities and autoimmunity.

CBD also suppresses the production of inflammatory macrophages, or inflamed cells that are found especially at sites of infection.

In addition, CBD is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from free radicals (harmful molecules).

4). CBD Oil Can Treat Seizures & Epilepsy

- It’s approximated that nearly 5% of dogs suffer from seizures. Most dogs with seizures are put on drugs - And while those drugs may help with the seizures, they can often times be very harmful to your pup’s liver and other organs. Also, in some cases the medication doesn't work at all.

Studies show that CBD works well in drug-resistant epilepsy. >> drug-resistant epilepsy.

And a survey of children with treatment-resistant epilepsy discovered that 84% of those taking CBD experienced a cutback in the amount of seizures. >> treatment-resistant epilepsy.

5). CBD Oil is NOT Psychoactive

- THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical compound found in cannabis that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. However, CBD (cannabidiol) is found in both hemp and cannabis and is completely non-psychoactive. It is not possible for your dog or cat to get “high” from CBD oil … he/she will get the relaxation and healing benefits without any of the the intoxication.
