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.
If your animal has a tendency to panic, then you should be wary of any product that contains THC, since, for some animals and people, that cannabinoid can elicit a panic response. CBD, on the other hand, has been proven to help regulate panic. A 2017 article in Current Neuropharmacology reviewed both experimental lab animal and human studies, and researchers concluded that “CBD seems to be a promising drug for the treatment of PD [panic disorder].”

The law on hemp-based products in the United States has evolved a lot in recent years. The federal farm bill of 2014 permitted the sale of hemp products, providing that the psychoactive content of these products (i.e. the amount of THC) was below 0.3 percent. That’s why you so often see references to products being either “THC-free” or containing less than 0.3 percent.
I’d love to hear how it worked for you! I’m sorry you have renal failure and congestive heart disease, my mom who is 51 has stage 5 renal failure and congestive heart disease as well, I just bought a cartridge with CBD vape oil and want her to try it. But she’s unsure so I’d really love to hear from you how it may have helped you. I hope things get better for you. I take care of my mom and know the daily stress and struggle it can bring. Again I’m sorry to hear you we’re diagnosed with those diseases.
Unfortunately, because this is a supplement we're not allowed to make medical claims regarding its use as a treatment or cure. However, this is the exact reason we began using this product on our own pets. (Our founding pets were diagnosed with cancer; one was 16 and the other was 8.) We used phytocannabinoidas palliative care for appetite and pain management.
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.
