Seems CBD oil is the new wonder supplement. It will cure everything, its the best thing since sliced bread, why haven’t you given it to everyone from your dog to your children and all the way to your fucking goldfish yet?? Like im sure it has its uses but its not gonna cure everything. Its a supplement, nothing more. It can’t even come from actual cannabis here in the uk, only industrial hemp. Its basically a very expensive hemp oil which i can get in the cooking oil aisle of the supermarket for £4. The uk recently allowed CBD oil provided it comes from industrial hemp and arseholes are trying to cash in on your vulnerability by making wild fucking promises and suggestions.
I probably said the same shit about turmeric, coconut oil and every other wonder supplement though.
From what I understand (which isn’t much lol) CBD oil isn’t regulated yet so it can be different depending on where you get it. Plus different recipes, ingredients, THC, if it’s hemp, cannabis, etc. If you’re going to get some, make sure it’s from somewhere recommended as it isn’t regulated so no way of knowing what you’re getting.
So it might work for some people depending on if their dog could benefit from it and they had a good product that worked well for them but not others. People just have to be careful on where they source it from (I would suggest consulting with a holistic vet).
I’m extremely new to it all and there’s so much that goes into it (and so much to learn). It’s a supplement but I would be careful about recommending it as it’s not regulated yet. But yeah it’s def the new ‘coconut oil/turmeric’ it seems, and the go to recommendation to pretty much any health issue esp on FB lol.
Not sure about what they get in the U.K. but I can attest that CBD does work for pain , itching I buy it in a salve form for me for aches @ pains and it works really fast to my surprise. This product was recommended by a person who has Fibromyalgia & prefers to take this over Pharma meds because the CBD has no side effects like the pharmaceuticals give.
My Pittie Dichess 11yrs has arthritis . So I got an extra Salve I rub the same Salve on her joints “ no pun intended” and she calms down . When my dogs get itchie ears I rub some on and the itch goes away. My 2 males are always hurting there legs from horse play & I rub it on the sore spots and I see they can walk better after. If they have a small cut I apply it & it works really well when they a nibbleing on the paws. I use the same CBD Salve that I buy for me @ the weed dispensary . – so you don’t need to spend extra by going to a place that claims Special CBD for pets. Not sure about the oil how that works I know some people put it in the dogs food but I haven’t tried any oil . Yet
This cost me $20.ea I always have 2 to 3 on hand . Try it you will be very much surprised how well it controls pain.. it’s made by CBDwellness & it’s THC free so there is no psychoactive component of the marijuana plant so you or your pet won’t get that high effect like THC based products . In Arizona we can get CBD based products with out a Medical Marijuana Card as long as there is no THC in it .
Yeah you can get it without prescription in Canada too if it doesn’t have THC in it. I’ve personally seen it really help with people for pain but it was from a medical dispensary.
Kilo was on CBD oil from the holistic vet but I don’t know if it helped him or not; he wasn’t really on it long enough to notice. I continued Kilo’s cancer diet for Lola and It helped settle Lola down; she is always a stresscase and can’t calm down (even with tons of exercise and training she has no off switch) but she’s finally settling down mentally now so it was nice to see that subtle change in her.
It will be great when it’s more regulated and there is more research done. I’m wary of recommending it to people unless I can aim them towards an actual medical dispensary.
