The idea of owning a pet has taken on a greater meaning over the last 10 years, particularly with the millennial generation as a pseudo-introduction to children. Terms like “my child”, “our family” and “my son/daughter” have become common vernacular in today’s society when speaking of one’s pet.
It appears that pets, specifically dogs, have been in our lives much longer than we realize. According to a Smithsonian Museum Magazine article published in 2018, scientists have determined that dogs were domesticated as early as 40,000 years ago! Cannabis has a similar story and has been recorded as being cultivated and used by humans as early as 30,000 years ago, making it highly probable that dogs have been using cannabis for literally thousands of years!
What Are the Benefits of CBD for Dogs?
The American Kennel Club wrote an article on CBD and its positive benefits for dogs. The article stated that CBD (while still being studied) helps pets with anxiety, depression, anticancer properties (no claims are being made) and the benefits of CBD oil for pets has even helped increase appetite in animals that may be losing weight.
What You Need to Know About CBD for Pets
Whether you choose to work with a certified organic farm or not, it is crucial for the consumer to know and understand where the oil comes from. The basics of CBD oil is 100% traced back to how the farmer grew and harvested their crop, including feeding the plants the proper nutrients during vegetation and even harvesting it in the proper temperatures, which all relate to a beneficial product.
