Pets – My CBD Cert Resources
CBD is the non-intoxicating component of both hemp and marijuana plants. Unlike THC, CBD cannot get you or your pets high, if dosed appropriately. However, CBD can influence brain activity in pets, which leads to some potential benefits, such as a reduction in stress and anxiety for dogs and cats. Pets should never be given an intoxicating level of THC. It’s important to discuss dosage instructions with your veterinarian and to never experiment with products not created specifically for pets. Studies have shown that CBD products have a wide margin of safety in both dogs and cats. Multiple veterinary studies published in the past two years have shown that, even when given high levels of CBD, pets experienced no major adverse effects
Hemp-derived products work conjointly with a pet’s natural endocannabinoid system, which helps to regulate many of the body’s different functions in our dogs and cats.
What is the global CBD pet market size?
The global CBD pet market size was estimated at USD 195.98 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a lucrative compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.8% from 2023 to 2030. The market is primarily driven by factors such as rising R&D initiatives, increasing demand, pet humanization, and expenditure.
Based on both human and veterinary literature, CBD products may also help pets in the following ways:
● Anti-inflammatory (i.e. hypersensitivity, dermatitis)
● Reduction in pain
● Reduction in seizures and convulsions
● Immune system support (i.e. autoimmune disease, cancer)
● Nervous system support
● Cardiovascular system support
● Reduction in anxiety
● Gastrointestinal support
There is also anecdotal evidence to support the use of hemp-derived CBD products for pets. A 2018 survey revealed that pet owners endorsed hemp CBD treats and products because of perceived improvement in numerous ailments including pain, inflammation, anxiety, digestive system issues, and aid with sleep. A few published peer-reviewed studies showed that using hemp-derived CBD oil improved the lives of dogs with osteoarthritis
