Cannabis Industry Trend: Cannabis for Dogs
Tuesday, Sep 4, 2018

In recent years, cannabis is emerging from a cloud of unfair stigma and becoming the subject of serious discussion about treatment options for a wide range of health conditions. Today, it’s been legalized for medicinal use in many states across the country, as well as recreational use in a handful of those.

As cannabis trends begin to grow and shift, marijuana for dogs is sparking some interest among the veterinary community and pet owners alike. Much like it’s an excellent, naturally-based treatment option for humans, cannabis for dogs is proving to have a long list of potential health benefits for your furry friends.

Much like humans, dogs experience the health benefits of cannabis through the interaction of cannabinoids with their internal endocannabinoid system. This system is comprised of receptors throughout the body, and when supplied with natural cannabinoids from medical marijuana, the receptors’ control over pain, nausea, and anxiety can be modulated to an ideal level.

This makes cannabis, and more specifically, cannabis-infused oil, an excellent option for helping pets that are suffering from conditions such as anxiety, chronic stress, nausea, seizures, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, and even symptoms of cancer. Cannabis oil has the added benefit of being extremely versatile, making it easy for dog owners to administer it topically or orally.
