A few weeks ago, while I was shopping for cannabis-infused topicals and tinctures at the dispensary, I observed a shelf of products dedicated strictly to pets. I have had amazing success alleviating pain, swelling and stiffness with ointments, lotions, sprays, extracts and a variety of cannabis products that are high in CBD. My miniature poodle is fourteen years old, and he was struggling to get up and down the stairs. He would occasionally yelp in pain when he’d jump off the couch. After a long nap, he’d be stiff and find it hard to transfer around. The veterinarian had him on several medications that didn’t seem to be making much of a difference. I did some research and l acquired that more and more pet owners are switching to cannabis products to treat their aging pets and cats. Apparently, CBD works well for both humans and critters. It influences CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid plan to promote homeostasis. THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for psychoactive effects, is harmful to pets. That’s why it’s especially pressing to purchase only those products that are intended for critters. These products are CBD isolates, containing not even traces of THC. I bought a CBD pet tincture for our poodle. I now feed a few drops to him twice per day through an eye dropper. He prefers the taste and is consistently delighted to take his medicine. I’ve observed a significant improvement in his level of activity. He not only travels up and down the stairs with no complications, he suddenly wants to play fetch and tug-of-war again. He’s wagging his tail, barking and a much happier pet.
