Our pets are our family. In return for their unwavering love for us, we want to provide them a wonderful and healthy life, free from anxiety and discomfort.
Cats and dogs have an endocannabinoid system – just like us! In fact, all mammals have the same endocannabinoid system which is similar to ours. This means CBD in our pets may work the same way it does for us. By attaching to CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD can activate them, which may them to release healthy biochemicals in our brain, while also relieving pain. Additionally, through anecdotal research, because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is given to pets for its appetite stimulation, anxiety impact, anti-nausea effects, and potentially anti-cancer benefits. But before you grab your CBD dropper, read through our article that will go in-depth about what you need to know before giving CBD to your pet.
CBD for Pets: What you need to know.
Even though there is no definitive, scientific answer that will answer all questions relating to CBD and pets, through anecdotal evidence, it’s perceived by pet owners that CBD can help treat pain, as well as help control seizures. As the FDA pushes forward to approve CBD products, the AKC Canine Health Foundation is sponsoring a major, clinical trial that will study the usage of CBD for epileptic dogs.

If you’re planning on using your personal LivingTree CBD oil for your pets, be precautious and always seek medical advice from your veterinarian first. Because CBD is a new topic within the medical field, the U.S Food and Drug Administration has not issued a dosing chart for pets.
Just like CBD for humans, CBD for pets should not be used to cure diseases. We advise to speak with your veterinarian before giving your pet CBD products.
