Life-threatening risks for dogs from medical cannabis are “exceedingly rare,” Richter says, adding that toxicity more often occurs when a pet has eaten a product that contains chocolate, coffee, or raisins. “Even if the THC toxicity is not excessive, they can sometimes have problems due to these other ingredients.” That said, ingestion of large amounts of marijuana has been fatal in a number of dogs, so preventing overdoses with medical cannabis is still extremely important, warns Dr. Jennifer Coates, a veterinary advisor with petMD.
CBD works primarily by interacting with your pets’ endocannabinoid system, a system present in all mammals. The endocannabinoid system, put simply, is an inter-related system of receptors and chemicals that work together to maintain homeostasis, or balance, in your pet’s body. Its effects range from appetite control to mood and pain regulation and immune support, and much more.
In cannabis terminology, edibles are any foods such as cookies, candies, or brownies that contain CBD and/or cannabis. CBD edibles are, of course, any of these food items that are specifically CBD-infused. For many people who want to consume CBD, edibles are an easy alternative when compared to other routes of administration like smoking and vaping. Also, some people prefer not to consume their cannabis in whole leaf form, simply because they either don’t like the taste or may have respiratory issues that prevent them from inhaling vapor or smoke, etc.

Due to the influence of big pharma,the FDA has refused (until recently) to investigate the benefits of phytocannabinoid oil for humans or pets. We are not allowed to say or imply that phytocannabinoid has any medical benefits, however the 1st Amendment also protects our right to tell you about our experiences with phytocannabinoid helping our own pets, and the fact that there have been more than 1500 clinical studies regarding the effectiveness of phytocannabinoids.*The owners and staff of Innovet believe, but cannot legally claim or imply, that countless dogs and cats have used phytocannabinoid oils for many conditions.
Another thing to think about is CBD edibles for pain. The great thing about the effects of CBD edibles is that they are long-lasting. Unlike vaping which takes effect almost immediately, or tinctures which act quite quickly, edibles take a little while to kick in. And when they do, the effects are there to stay for a good amount of time. CBD is thought to have potent anti-inflammatory properties which are why it works so well to manage pain. However, if you are after a more quick-acting effect to relieve pain, then you might want to opt for another form of CBD rather than edibles.
Like any medications, overdosing can lead to potential risks for pets. “The most significant is THC toxicity, meaning, essentially, they are high,” Richter says. “Depending on how significantly a pet has been overdosed, the effects of that can be quite long-lasting, even days.” During these episodes, a pet may not be able to stand or eat. If you suspect an overdose, take your pet to the veterinarian immediately.
Yes, unfortunately we get this type of question frequently from internet trolls!The first misunderstanding here is rooted in thinking that hemp is the same as pot. Hemp is a form of the cannabis plant that does NOT have the psychoactive THC chemical; i.e., you cannot get high off hemp. To be considered hemp, a cannabis plant must have less than 0.3% THC. A good analogy is to compare grape juice to wine; when grape juice ferments, it becomes alcohol. If it doesn’t contain alcohol, it’s just grape juice. Your dog can no more get high from our PurCBD+ or hemp than you could get drunk by drinking grape juice.
CBD edibles are the new thing, and they are moving way past pot brownies. CBD edibles have taken the market by storm and are only estimated to grow in popularity in 2019 and beyond.

CBD edibles are enjoyed for their healing effects. You will likely feel your anxiety calming, pain lessening, and your body relaxing after consuming CBD. Often you will also notice that you become more focused on the present moment as your anxieties and pains fade away. The point of consuming CBD edibles isn’t to alter your state of mind but rather remove the body’s distractions to bring yourself back to a fuller and more complete version of who you are.
Each case is unique, and you must consider your pet’s medical history. There are over 1500 prescription drugs for pets in the United States; each of them could interact in a different way with any supplement such as PurCBD. If your pet is on any prescription medication we recommend consulting with a veterinarian before administering any supplement, including our own. Our comprehensive dosing chart is the best place to start; the second page of the chart has a form to help you and your veterinarian coordinate the use of prescription meds with PurCBD. Here is the direct link to the planner:
‘In the 1940s and early 1950s, further studies showed inactivation of diverse bacteria, influenza virus, and Penicillium chrysogenum (previously P. notatum) mold fungus using various glycols, principally propylene glycol and triethylene glycol. In principle, these chemical substances are ideal air disinfectants because they have both high lethality to microorganisms and low mammalian toxicity.’

CBD vape juice is typically made from two types of extract – either CBD-isolate or full-spectrum CBD. The extraction process for isolates separates the CBD from everything else, as to provide a pure CBD experience. Meanwhile, full-spectrum is created with a whole-plant hemp extract, that comprises of other cannabinoids and terpenes to deliver all-encompassing benefits of hemp. There are advantages to using isolates and full-spectrum products, which we will explore further in this piece.
So how does it work? Scientists are still working out the details of how CBD works to calm the mind, though it seems that its effects on serotonin and glutamate production are part of that equation.
