BENEFITS OF CBD (FOR DOGS)
Updated: Oct 5
Although it's still controversial; a growing number of pet parents have discovered the benefits of CBD. Keep in mind that while CBD has numerous benefits (some of which have been back by scientific studies); you should never administer CBD to your pets without a proper diagnosis by a veterinarian or medical professional.
CBD stands for cannabinoid. Cannabinoid derives from the cannabis plant (otherwise known as marijuana); however, it isn't the same as the psychoactive derivative know as the chemical compound THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD isn't a psychoactive drug and it will not get your dog high. CBD and THC are both derived from the cannabis plant; however, they aren't the same thing. They're actually quite different!
THC is the psychoactive part of the cannabis plant - it's what gives people the effect of feeling high.
CBD is not psychoactive. CBD has many healing properties without the negative side effects of feeling high or stoned.
