If you happen to be a fan of CBD as well as an animal enthusiast, you’ve probably wondered if the supplement can work for your pets. Especially since animals have very similar systems to humans and often suffer from the same medical hardships.
Tests conducted by CannPal Animal Therapeutics are showing some good signs. This is perhaps unsurprising to many, but the cannabinoids given to the dogs involved in the test successfully relieved pain and inflammation.
Dogs, just like humans, have an endocannabinoid system that ideally keeps the body in a healthy state. If the body is not, however, in a healthy state, CBD can help the system do its job–keeping both humans and dogs, it seems, healthier and happier.
The study was conducted on two dogs breeds, beagles and foxhounds. But the company is looking to test cats soon as well.
And other studies are currently underway, including one by the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation.
A Little Publicity Thanks to a Pup
Thomas McDermott Jr, mayor of Hammond, Indiana, started treating his aging and ailing dog with the oil. He wanted to try something different and after consulting the vet, decided to give it a try. He says after putting the oil in his food daily that his twelve year old Teddy is defying age. “He developed a better appetite and more energy,” McDermott said.
In his mayoral position, McDermott’s pet attracts a bit of attention and appears to be somewhat of a champion for the health product. When Teddy first began taking it, many still thought it illegal in the state of Indiana. McDermott and Teddy are taking back their health as well as bringing awareness to their constituents–CBD is healthy, helpful, natural, and LEGAL.
Cannabidiol is indeed changing lives but perhaps even more than we all thought.
