Hi Jamie. I’m very sorry to hear about your dog. Please remember I am not a vet myself so any advice I can provide is from what I’ve read from the experience of other people. I cannot provide medical advice. In situations like this, I believe people have used as high of a dose of CBD and other cannabinoids as the dog could tolerate without negative side effects. I don’t think the cream would be the right product. In cases like this, ingestion would be appropriate. My best advice for you would be to seek out the help of a veterinarian expert who has experience working with dogs and cannabis. Dr. Gary Richter would be my first choice. Even if you don’t live in California, you may be able to do a phone consultation with him to see what dosage and product he would recommend. Please let me know if you have more questions and I will do my best to help.
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. This comprehensive 2015 review of scientific literature on CBD as a potential treatment for anxiety concluded that CBD has considerable potential and strongly recommended further study.
Whichever way you choose to consume CBD, there is no denying its unmistakable proven benefits. Edibles are a great choice for those who are after the beneficial properties of cannabis and its active components, like CBD, but don’t want to vape or smoke it. CBD edibles are often pocket-sized, they travel well, are convenient, contain an exact and pre-measured dose of CBD, and some are incredibly tasty and fun to eat. Also, the effects of ingesting CBD last significantly longer than smoking or vaping.
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.
Now, scientific research is discovering why. Evidence from laboratory studies and clinical studies, have begun to reveal the mechanisms through which CBD helps control seizures. But, unlike most other conditions that CBD has been shown to treat, the FDA has actually agreed that the evidence is conclusive enough that CBD is now an approved medication for epilepsy for humans.
The most popular Green Roads CBD edibles are their gummies. They have come up with a few different gummy options including gummy bears, CBD Froggies, Fruit snacks, and sleepy Z’s. The gummy bears are packaged with 30 bears per container, with each bear containing 10 mg of CBD. The froggies are available in three options; 100 mg, 200 mg, and 300 mg packs. The fruit snacks consist of fruity flavors, and you get 20 per bag, while the sleepy Z’s are great for anyone who has insomnia.
There are numerous ways to get our dose of CBD, one of the most popular being CBD edibles. You’ve probably heard the “I ate too much of the delicious chocolate brownie and freaked the eff out” stories quite a few times. But, these stories would be referencing THC-infused brownies or edibles, not CBD edibles. The effects of CBD edibles aren’t as noticeable when compared to THC edibles, and you will not feel high or “trip out” in the traditional sense of the phrase.
Different drug tests will set different limits on the amount of THC that you are permitted to have in the blood. Full-spectrum CBD products are generally made with a small level of THC, due to the small quantity that was initially in the hemp. This will, because of the law, always be less than 0.3%, and no psychoactive effect is possible in that amount.
Out of all the CBD gummies listed on here, I only tried Good Vibes Gummies. So glad to see this one on your list. Love, love, love it! Helps me stay calm and cool. Just have to keep out of reach of my children lol. Might have to try Green Roads World’s froggies to test it’s strength and potency. Always loved your lists because I get to discover new fun things to test out and enjoy all the time!
