CBD oil for dogs by Krush Organics is a relatively new product. 

After realising how powerful cannabidiol is, the scientists and hemp companies like KrushOrganics.com have teamed up to create a substance that would also work for your pet. In a way, this is a major breakthrough both for the cannabis industry and consumers.

CBD oil for dogs should work very similarly to other cannabidiol products. It can either be ingested or placed topically; it all depends on an issue that you’re trying to solve. Furthermore, we presume that dogs have a similar endocannabinoid system as humans; thus, they could be treated for the same medical conditions. 

Here are some of the main things you need to know about this amazing product:

How does CBD oil for dogs work?

The substance can be used to improve the wellbeing of your pet. According to various studies, it has a lot of potential for the treatment of anxiety, stress, PTSD, chronic pain, inflammation, and so on. The product cannot be used for cancer, but it can be used to relieve certain symptoms that come with the ailment. If you use it properly, your dog will become much more joyful and rejuvenated.

Cannabidiol is one of 100+ substances that can be found in hemp and marijuana. Given that cannabis also has THC (psychedelic substance), most manufacturers rely on hemp as the main plant for CBD items. The product is completely safe for dogs, as it is for humans. Furthermore, it comes under the same scrutiny as the product that is used by humans. 

When introduced into our body, CBD oil interacts with the endocannabinoid system. We’ve just recently discovered this part of the body (in the last several decades). This is why our knowledge of the endocannabinoid system is still very limited. 

However, based on the scarce data, the system might be crucial or regulating various metabolic processes like sleep, appetite, pain, and so on. By keeping it in an optimal working condition, you might also treat/prevent ailments that are connected to these metabolic mechanisms.

Is CBD oil safe for dogs?

CBD oil for dogs is very similar to the product used by humans. There are small tweaks in terms of dosage and other small factors, but in general, they are almost the same. For example, if you’re worried not to overdose on CBD, we suggest that you read this guide on ‘Can you overdose on CBD? If you follow the tips in the article, your pet should be able to use CBD oil without any issue.

If there is one potential problem that is THC content. If there is too much of this substance, your dog will get high. But don’t worry; that is unlikely to happen as most cannabis manufacturers keep their THC under 0.3% (as regulated by the state). Theoretically, your pet might still get high, but only if it ingests enormous quantities of the product. 

One of the main concerns people have comes in the shape of long-term consequences. The truth is, we still know every little about cannabinoids, the endocannabinoid system, and their interaction. Given that CBD oil is a relatively new item on the market, we don’t know how it would impact a body (whether it’s a human or animal body) after prolonged use. This is why you should exercise caution when using CBD oil. 

How to find the right CBD product for my dog? 

There are a lot of things you need to pay attention to when purchasing CBD oil. The main problem is the fact that the market is not properly regulated. Some manufacturers are even using shady business methods, which might affect the quality of the product. Here are some ways to avoid buying a bad CBD oil:

  • Buy from reputable sources. Make sure to check online reviews before purchasing an item. Additionally, it is much better to buy from specialized hemp stores than from big resellers.
  • Check the label. There are a lot of things that you need to pay attention to. Make sure that the company adheres to all rules and regulations and that they’re not using some strong, volatile chemicals.
  • It is much better to buy from stores with good customer service. That way, if anything bad happens, you can always ask for assistance.

By following these simple rules, you can find a cannabis product that will work perfectly for your dog.
