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.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis. It’s this compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are just that … the beneficial CBD without the THC. And they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. In short, your dog won’t get “high” from CBD oil … he’ll get the relaxation without the intoxication.
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.
You can thin the CBD with terpenes, encapsulate it in dextrin, drive the terpenes off with heat, and use the now water-soluble CBD in water with an ultrasonic fogger/oil-diffuser. It won’t precipitate, but the level of solubility is pretty low even with encapsulation, think 100mg per 200ml. The evaporation rate of those units is somewhere like 50ml/hour, which works out to .83mg of CBD being vaporized a minute, or .14mg every 10 seconds. That’s a miniscule rate.
Now comes the fun part: How to make CBD edibles. But before we look at that, let’s answer a very important question, do CBD edibles get you high? As we have already briefly discussed, CBD is non-psychoactive which means that it won’t get you high. Effectively, this means that CBD edibles won’t get you high. CBD will make you feel relaxed and have you feeling incredibly serene, but it will never get you intoxicated in the same way that THC does. As we mentioned earlier, this is the reason that CBD edibles are legal across the U.S.
In addition to so strong nutritional profile of CBD oil, it’s important to add CBD oil to the diet plan for your pets. If you’re not still convinced, I am pretty sure that you will be convinced once you finish reading this article. Moreover, there are many other nutrients and minerals that are found in CBD oil besides omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.
