Pot for Pets: Is THC and CBD Safe for Pets?
When we consume cannabis, the THC and CBD from the plant activates our body’s Endocannabinoid System by fitting into cannabinoid receptors spread throughout the brain and body.
Yes, THC and CBD definitely have health benefits.
- Pain Relief: There’s a really solid body of research showing that THC has powerful analgesic effects. Studies show it can help with both nociceptive and neuropathic pain and is particularly effective for treating chronic pain from conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more.
- Antiemetic: THC is very effective at treating nausea and vomiting. This has made it very popular among cancer and AIDS patients suffering from chronic nausea, vomiting, and appetite loss due to their treatments. Synthetic THC isolates like Marinol, for example, have been around since the 1980s.
- Neuroprotection: Contrary to popular belief, studies show that THC and other cannabinoids can help protect brain cells. In fact, some studies suggest that cannabinoids can stimulate neurogenesis in certain parts of the brain and therefore help treat neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and more.
- Appetite Stimulation: This might come as no surprise, but studies show that THC is very effective at stimulating both appetite and metabolism. Again, this makes it an attractive supplement for people suffering from eating disorders as well as appetite loss from certain medical conditions and treatments.
The Effects of THC and CBD on Pets
We strongly recommend folks use High THC with Moderate CBD when working with Pets. CBD alone from our observation over the years will only mask the symptoms where as High THC with Moderate CBD will actually illuminate the issues all together when use appropriately and in small amounts.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the second most concentrated cannabinoid found in cannabis.
It is found in especially high concentrations in hemp, a variety of cannabis that contains low concentrations of THC (usually below 0.3%) and has many industrial uses.
Like THC, CBD has a wide variety of health benefits.
If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve seen cannabis products containing both THC and CBD and are wondering whether these are a good option for treating your pet.
Yes!!, they are good for humans and pets, you might hear differently elsewhere but we have seen the proof.
A lot of companies out there are pushing watered down CBD products that are basically useless and a waste of money, as CBD alone only treats the disease, disorder or issue forever.
All disease and illness involves mutating cells, similar to fungus if not eliminated it grows. When THC connects to the CB1 or CB2 cannabinoid receptor site on the mutating cell, it causes an increase in ceramide synthesis which drives cell death. A normal healthy cell does not produce ceramide in the presence of THC, thus is not affected by the cannabinoid. CBD does not do this whatsoever however it does slow the growth of the mutating cells this is why we recommend High THC in the 90% range with moderate CBD between 3 and 10%.
Made with highly concentrated marijuana and hemp extracts, products with High THC and moderate CBD can offer a wide variety of health benefits and help to actually cure your pet instead of treating forever.
Pets just like humans can use the “microdosing” technique in controlled doses of High THC with moderate CBD.t
