It is safe to use CBD oil for your pets!
The effects of CBD come from its ability to stimulate the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in the regulation of several bodily functions. This organic system is found in every mammal on earth, meaning that many animals also have it. The ECS is something that we share with our pets, and differences are minute enough, that the effects of CBD on a human and the effects on an animal are extremely similar.
The general fear for pet safety when being given CBD, is associated with the fact that many people, do not understand the key differences between CBD and THC. It is very easy to mix up the two, as they come from the same group of plants and are structurally very similar. At first glance, it would appear as though CBD could have psychoactive effects on your pet, similar to THC.
However, this is not the case in reality. The main difference between CBD and THC is that CBD does not have any intoxicating attributes. The feeling that THC gives us that we call a “high”, is our body reacting to the psychoactive properties of the compound; and when ingested by pets, these effects can be dangerous or anxiety-inducing. We cannot stress enough: CBD lacks these psychoactive properties, and our pet tinctures are lab tested to ensure less than 0.2% THC is included in the final product.
