Consumers are beginning to see mainstream CBD oil products marketed for a unique member of their family – pets – leading many to ask, “Should I be giving CBD to my pet?”
Yes. Pet’s can benefit from CBD the same way as humans.
It is possible to supplement your pet’s system with CBD, just as you would your own. That is because all mammals, perhaps all vertebrates, have an endocannabinoid system, the bodily system with which cannabinoids interact, meaning that your pet can likely benefit from CBD in much the same ways as you.
How Does CBD Oil Work In Pets?
CBD hemp oil’s benefits come from CBD’s ability to affect the body’s naturally occurring regulatory processes by interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining homeostasis within the body – including regulation of the communication between cells, body’s immune response, and functions like appetite, sleep, and metabolism. Because of this similarity between the bodies of humans and other mammals, many owners have started using commercial CBD-infused products for their pets.
CBD has become the cannabinoid of choice for many customers to give their pets because it is non-toxic and well tolerated in mammals. Since Medical Marijuana, Inc. products are made with hemp oil that contains only a trace amount of THC, there aren’t any psychoactive effects, making them the safe choice for use on pets.
Which Medical Marijuana, Inc. Products Are Best for Pets?
Some Medical Marijuana, Inc. customers already give their pets our CBD hemp oil products, but remember, serving sizes will need to be significantly reduced, based on your pet’s size and weight. It is always a good idea when giving CBD to your pet to start off with a very small serving and work your way up to a higher serving slowly over a series of weeks. A few of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s products work well when given to pets due to their minimal ingredients and easily adjustable serving sizes.
RSHO™ Oral Applicators: RSHO™ hemp oils from our oral applicators can be dispensed onto your finger and given to your dog to lick off, placed on a treat, or mixed into their food to provide their desired daily serving of CBD. Because RSHO™ pure hemp oils naturally contain a high concentration of CBD, it is especially important to start off small and increase serving sizes each week or two.
RSHO™ Tinctures: Our convenient CBD oil tinctures can easily be added to your pet’s food, and because they are low potency, it is easier to measure out smaller servings of CBD for smaller pets. RSHO™ Tinctures blend our popular RSHO™pure hemp oils with sustainable medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil.
RSHO™ and RSHO-X™ CBD Liquids: Our CBD hemp oil liquids also combine our CBD hemp oil with MCT oil, but with a more concentrated level of CBD. For a creative way to add CBD hemp oil to your pet’s diet, try making them custom CBD-infused treats.
