If you wonder whether your sick dog needs cannabis oil, Cannabis Therapy may have the answer. Does your ill dog need cannabis oil if it shows signs of pain and lethargy? We know some dogs who were given doses of cannabis oil by their owners and seemed never to age. Everyone loves a dog as a pet which means we choose what is best for them. Would you give your dog medication with terrible side effects?
Cannabis oil has no side effects if you choose the correct strain and dosage. In humans, cannabis oil has been shown to treat glaucoma successfully, seizures, pain, inflammation, cancerous tumours, arthritis, anxiety, depression, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and the list goes on. You need to be careful with dogs but can also try cannabis oil if your sick dogs needneed it.
Treat Your Sick Dog with Cannabis Oil Carefully
There are two main chemical compounds in the cannabis plant, which has at least 80 different cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) cling to specific receptors in your body and brain, which are part of the innate endocannabinoid system. Even dogs have an endocannabinoid system. Dogs need to take cannabis oil in accessible forms if they are sick, and in some countries, there are even dog biscuits containing cannabinoids! Before you treat your sick dog with cannabis oil, see which kind of cannabinoid suits the illness. THC is significant for inflammation, but a blend of THC and CBD is better as the CBD takes away the psychotic properties of the THC (this is the substance that makes us high).
It is always tricky to know how much cannabis oil to give your sick dog, but you need to ensure it works. As a guide, we suggest you start with a tiny dose of, say, 0.5 to 1mg. You do not want your dog to feel any side effects of the THC, which will disorientate them. It can take a few hours for the cannabis oil to go work on your sick dog. If you think the dog is not responding enough, increase the dosage a little. An overdose means your dog is wobbly, spaced out, not eating or drinking and battling to stand up. Then you take your dog to the vet. Never leave your dog alone if dosing with cannabis. Use CBD strains rather than THC strains to be on the safe side, as CBD is a natural medication with NO side effects.
Methods to Give Your Dog Cannabis Oil
- Cannabis oil – put a little oil in a piece of meat or a treat you usually give your dog. Or squirt the oil into the dog’s mouth using a syringe.
- Cannabis oil creams can be used for arthritis or dogs not wanting to eat. It is excellent for skin allergies and joints. Choose a natural cream including coconut or olive oils if your dog licks himself.
- Cannabis oil tinctures – do the same as with the oil – squirt into the sick dog’s mouth with a syringe or put a few drops in his favourite snack.
- Cannabis oil edibles – you can make cannabis oil butter and insert it into the dog’s food or buy ready-made dog biscuits containing cannabis oil in some countries. Do not give your dog edibles containing cannabis
