CBD

What is CBD?


CBD is one of many natually occuring cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD interacts with the human and animal body via the endocannabinoid system; which is responsible for regulating a number of physiological functions. CBD is typically extracted from the stalks and seeds of the hemp plant. This cannabinoid has demostrated anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and anti-anxiety benefits.




What are cannabinoids?


Cannabinoids are compounds that work naturally to regulate biological processes in the body such as inflammation, sleep, relaxation, appetite, and pain. Taken regularly, they can help maintain a healthy balance in the endocannabinoid system.




How does CBD work?


All mammals have an endocannabinoid system that helps regulate physiological, neurological and immunological systems. If the system is lacking production, the receptors of the endocannabinoid system is utilize the additional cannabinoids to create balance and provide support for relaxing, repairing and restoring order. A daily supplement of CBD can help support this process.




What are the benefits of CBD?


CBD can effectively bring balance to pets suffering from a variety of aliments. Benefits can include calming, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammation, joint support, arthritis relief, pain relief, overall health, and much more.




Is CBD safe for my dog?


Yes! Dogs are especially responsive to CBD as they have the highest concentration of cannabinoid receptors by conparison to other mammals; even humans. Our CBD products have brought balance to dogs suffering from a variety of aliments; including anxiety, arthritis, inflammation, pain, mobility issues, end of life discomfort, epilepsy, glaucoma, digestive issues and more. Consult your medical professional before starting new diets or routines with your pooch.




What does CBD mean?


CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of many cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant. CBD is 100% non-psychoactive and 100% non-addictive.




Is CBD legal in my state?


CBD is legal under federal law, if it is derived from hemp, as passed in the 2018 Farm Bill. CBD is not specifically listed as a controlled substance under the US Controlled Substance Act; and no medical prescription is required. Individual state laws are more specific and some states may govern hemp derived CBD more strictly.




Can CBD get my dog high?


Absolutely Not! CBD is non-psychoactive. If your dog has a large amount of CBD, they will take a good nap.




Is CBD safe for puppies?


Yes! CBD is safe for dogs of all ages; however, we prefer to wait until the dog is at least one year old. If you do give CBD to a younger dog, start at the lower end of the recommended dose and observe closely. Monitor your dog and adjust as needed. Consult your medical professional before starting CBD with your pooch.




Can CBD be taken with other medication?


Always consult with your veterinarian before starting a new diet or medical routine; especially if your dog is on taking a medical prescription besides a heartworm or flea preventative. Dogs taking liver medicine should NOT take CBD.




Can CBD replace my dog's current medications?


La Barkeria recommends checking with your dog's vet before taking your dog off any prescribed medicine. That being said, CBD can be a great supplement to any prescribed medicines because it is a natural substance. If you decide to take your dog off a current medication; do it slowly with your vets supervision; some medication can have sever side effects when stopped suddenly.

CBD DOSAGE

How much CBD should I give my dog?


You know your dog best! Observe before and after adminstration to determine the optimal dose for your pooch. We recommend staring at 1-3mg per 10-lbs of body mass. For example, a 50-lb dog would start at 5-15mg per day.




How long does CBD last?


The effects of CBD can last anywhere from 4-8 hours. This varies due to a number of factors including:

  • the size of the dose
  • your dog's digestive system (metabolism)
  • food eaten that day
  • severity of symptoms

To determine the proper dose; first determine your dog's weight. Start with the recommended dose, monitor your dog, then adjust as needed.

How much CBD should I give my dog for seizures?


If your dog has epilepsy or a seizure disorder; we recommend a daily dose of CBD as a preventative. During a seizure, you will need to increase the dose. We recommend using liquid CBD oil for dogs with seizure disorders as it take effect faster. When we see the signs of a seizure coming on with our husky mix; we will give her CBD oil to try to prevent the occurance.




How often can I give my dog CBD treats?


At La Barkeria, we are dedicated to supporting a routine that works best for your family. Many dogs do great with 2+ doses a day as often as every 4 hours. While other dogs take CBD once a dy or just occassionally. The full effects last 4-8 hours; depending on the method of use and dosage.




How long does it take for CBD to work?


Each dog is unique. This depends on the product you use (oil vs treats), the method of delivery (given straight to the dog or mixed in their food) and the dog's digestive system. The effects of edible treats will take place on digestion; anywhere from 30-60+ minutes. The process works faster on an empty stomach.
