Promising Treatment for OA Pups.

If we’re not in pain then we’re not awake, right? The same is true for our pets, especially those with osteoarthritis (OA). And while there are meds for humans and pets, CBD has been shown to have a positive effect on both. This particular product was shown to be bioavailable across the small number of dogs examined in the PK portion of the study, and dogs with OA receiving this industrial hemp extract high in CBD (2 mg/kg of CBD) were perceived to be more comfortable and active.

There appears to be no observed side effects of the treatment in either the dogs utilized in the PK study at 2 and 8 mg/kg, or dogs undergoing OA treatment for a month duration. There were some dogs with incidental rises in alkaline phosphatase that could be related to the treatment. Further long-term studies with larger populations are needed to identify long-term effects of CBD rich industrial hemp treatment, however short term effects appear to be positive.

A Reduction in Seizures? Tell Me More!

Did you know that idiopathic epilepsy affects almost 6% of the pet dog population making it the most common canine neurologic condition? [CSU 2019] Scientists have found in a small study (from 2016-2017) that the effects of CBD on dogs with epilepsy are both “promising and exciting.” Nine dogs were treated with CBD, while seven in a control group were treated with a placebo. 89 percent of dogs who received CBD in the clinical trial had a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures. Additionally, researchers were able to make a positive correlation with the concentration of CBD in the dogs bloodstream and the effectiveness of CBD reducing seizure activity (i.e. the higher the concentration the less likely for seizure activity).

CBD + EVOO = Countless Benefits

We obviously love CBD and we truly believe in the benefits it provides for our pets. But one of the reasons we use food grade extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is because of the health benefits it provides (to us and our pets). Many oils have positive effects on users and we find that EVOO’s list is the most impressive. The most obvious benefit is skin (and fur) health alleviating dry/itchy skin while helping with elasticity and softness. But did you know that EVOO also helps boost the immune system, contributes to brain health, and assists in regulating a healthy weight? EVOO’s rap sheet plus the many benefits of CBD make a strong case for daily tincture use to address a wide array of conditions.
