If it has a spine, it has an Endogenous Cannabinoid System! Cannabis Therapy can help pets of all breeds & weights. Cannabis is Non-Toxic. Unfortunately the Veterinary Community has not been educated on Cannabis Therapy yet for animals but I am! Reach out for help!
Humans have been using Cannabis Therapy for years to treat a wide variety of diseases and symptoms. All mammals (dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and fish) have CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors; they make up the Endogenous Cannabinoid System. So just as humans, CBD can benefit your pet from many aliments that their body and mind are suffering from. The following is a brief list of common ailments that CBD can provide relief to your furry family member:
Cannabis has long been studied for its anti-anxiety effects. Scientists have found that CBD has a particularly calming effect – both on animals and in humans. It’s useful for bouts of anxiety as well as generalized anxiety and insomnia; however, CBD doesn’t cause extreme sedation the way many other anti-anxiety and sleep medications can. Anxiety in animals can be caused by separation from their human, grooming and/or vet appointments, riding in a car, fireworks, loud noises, etc. CBD allows to take the edge off these situations and make for a more relaxing feeling for both the pet and human. Nobody likes to see their pet suffer during these types of situations, so why not help them get through it without prescription drugs. Suggested dosing for this condition would be General Dosing if the pet experiences constant anxiety. Microdosing can be used for an upcoming event. Rescue Dosing for emergencies.
Cannabis is also an effective treatment for pain – whether a pet is suffering from a disease such as cancer, is dealing with arthritis, or maybe dealing with temporary pain from a surgery or an injury, CBD can help ease the pain without long term effects. Just as in humans, pharmaceutical pain medications for pets can cause sedation, stomach problems and even kidney issues if used long term. CBD carries none of these risks and at the right doses, can kill pain and reduce inflammation. In addition to not causing kidney issues, Cannabis has been studied as a potential treatment for kidney disease. For most pets, it can present a safer and more tolerable pain management option. General Dosing is best for all over or constant pain. Microdosing is a perfect option when there is a sudden injury to get control over pain levels then swithch over to General Dosing. Rescue Therapy can be used and useful IF the pet has an activated system. If the system is not activated the doses will be wasted.
Some pets display aggression in certain situations and some can quickly turn on you with no warning signs or explanation. CBD can help curb aggression by providing a calming effect to over enthusiastic and/or stimulated pets. General Dosing is the best route for this situation.
Over the years, Cannabis has become well-known as a natural anti-nausea treatment. It also works well for animals who have lost interest in food or who are experiencing digestive problems such as irritable bowel disease, feline UTI’s, colitis, constipation, gastritis, etc. CBD can also act as a stimulate to increase appetite, which is a double benefit to pets that have lost weight due to continued bouts of diarrhea, dehydration and/or vomiting.
CBD has been proven effective at treating certain kinds of epilepsy in humans, and many pet owners are finding great success using CBD products on their pets as well.
CBD is NOT THC!! Although, a full spectrum oil will have small amounts of THC, it is needed to facilitate the power of the CBD. When taking as directed, there is no threat to your pet overdosing or getting high. CBD oil in a suspension form can be used in two ways; you can squirt it right into your pet’s mouth or infuse their treats. If you decide to infuse treats, it is one drop per treat and the oil must sit on the treat for at least 24 hours to provide the benefits to your pet. For your pet to get the most benefits from CBD, just as for human the cannabinoids must consistently remain in their system. This means giving your pet an infused treat or drops 4 times a day, roughly every 4-6 hours. Just as a prescription drug needs to be in your system over time to aid in your aliment, CBD oil works the same way. This is the only way to make sure that CBD is being adsorbed by all the receptors in the body and providing long term care to their aliment.
To activate the Endogenous Cannabinoid System for optimal use of Cannabis Therapy, doses should be given at 4 hour intervals and started 24hrs before an event. A situation that can cause stress or anxiety for a pet such as a grooming/vet appointment or car ride would be a great scenario for this type of therapy. You want to give doses prior to the event to activate the receptors so when giving consecutive doses, ALL cannabinoids can be utilized.
1st dose 8am
2nd dose 12 noon
3rd dose 4pm
4th dose 8pm
If your appointment is in the morning, you would want to give 2 doses the day before at 4 hours apart and 2 doses the day of. Day of...1st dose 3-4 hrs before appointment, 2nd dose 30 min prior to appointment.
If your appointment is in the afternoon, you would want to give 1 dose the night before and 3 doses the day of at 4hr intervals.
Keep in mind.... Cannabis is NON-TOXIC. That means there are no HARD RULES! 4hr interval is a time frame to shoot for. 30min one way or another is not going to make or break a situation. Every system is different and could require a different milligram to be theraputic. If this route does not to be as effective as intended PLEASE REACH OUT FOR DIRECTION by sending a message...
There are always options...

This is an inoperable mass we found on our Bloodhounds chest just before her 2nd birthday. We immediately started her on FECO (Full Extract Cannabis Oil) 3 doses a day.
We quickly titrated Georgia's dose. This photo is 3 days into treatment. The mass came down 10% a day. Within 10 days her chest was flat. We kept her on a maintenance dose for a couple years after.
In August 2020 we adjusted Georgia's oil again to address the lump in the above photo.
So much progress made in just a month on her new dose.
Just like new !
Rocky broke his pinky toe as you can see in the x-ray. He was on Cannabis Therapy already because his anxiety is generally through the roof. We adjusted the properties in his daily doses to help heal his new injury.
A muscle relaxer, a pain reliever, an anti-inflammatory, an anti-anxiety, and a bone modulator is what Cannabis Therapy did for our fur baby. He healed beautifully and fully in 10-12 weeks.
