Guest Post: Help your dog become and stay healthy with CBD

Author’s bio: Luke is the editor in chief at Greencamp, a medicinal cannabis blog that educates people on the many benefits of cannabis as a plant for both humans and their best friends.

My dog died just shy of 3 years ago. His name was Bari (pronounced Burr-eeh) and he was a quirky little English Cocker Spaniel who unfortunately could’ve lived a bit longer than his 12 years. Well, I guess that’s what all ex-dog parents say at some point.

Bari was a sensitive dogo. Throughout his life, he had lime disease 3 times, several urinary infections which required antibiotics and countless other interventions, which required him to be anesthetized 4 times by the time he was ten.

Needless to say, with him being so prone to disease, we spent a small fortune on vets and even bigger fortune on medication. The biggest expense was, if I remember correctly, this particular type of dog food that he was prescribed when he had stomach issues.

What I am about to tell you right now would’ve saved me thousands of dollars and just might have given my best friend a few extra years of life.

Cannabidiol (CBD) a compound produced by the Cannabis Sativa plant helps restore dog’s overall health just like it does for us humans.

And here’s how that works…

CBD for dogs

As you can see from the infographic above, CBD helps our dogs in many ways, is administered easily and the only requirement is that you experiment with your dog to get the dosage right. 
Cannabidiol does wonders for our dogs because it fits into their entire system like a key inside a lock. See, there is an entire network of cellular receptors and activators inside their body and that network regulates hundreds of processes.

That is the endocannabinoid system. All mammals have it. 

Endocannabinoid system (ECS for short) is how our nerves communicate between organs basically and is one of the main components of the mammalian nervous system, including central and peripheral nervous systems.

Medically speaking, ECS needs to function properly for the mammalian body to do a good job at managing appetite, pain sensation, mood and cognitive processes, primarily.

ECS functions through cellular activators and receptors, which is mediated through endocannabinoids that our body produces naturally. Cannabis Sativa contains 113 phytocannabinoids, all of which do an amazing job at replicating our very own endocannabinoids, thus acting as a natural supplement and stimulator.

The two main cannabinoids in cannabis are THC and CBD. THC is toxic and harmful to dogs, so I won’t spend anymore time explaining its effects.

CBD, however, is proven to have many medical benefits for all mammals and that includes our furry friends. From the research done on other mammals and reported experiences from other dog owners, we can pull a conclusion that CBD is indeed helpful in balancing out the mind and body of our dogs.

CBD does all of this primarily by activating vanilloid, adenosine and serotonin receptors, which in turn help our dogs battle allergies, anxiety, learned fears (especially fear of loud noises in dogs), inflammation, seizures and even cancer.

As a final tip, I would recommend you find a brand that produces organic CBD products with an attached lab test result from an independent lab, as that is the only way to truly know what you’re buying.

  1. In the studies conducted, CBD oil has shown to help with inflammation, reduction of pain, and overall discomforts related to various health conditions. (See our article on what CBD is and our article on the benefits of CBD for more details.) But how does it do that? As briefly mentioned in our article about what CBD (cannabidiol) is, all about cbd
