Hey Guys! I am Dr. Lindsay a Small Animal Veterinarian and today we are joined by my dog Blue to talk about the Hemp Elements Plus Bites by Zesty Paws that contain 5 mg of CBD! CBD Can NOT get your dog high: CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the hundreds of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids found in the Hemp Plant without the intoxicating effects of THC. CBD is not the same as Marijuana: That is the misconception. The truth is that CBD and marijuana are both the same plant and that is why most pet owners may think their dog will get high from it. But they won’t. The difference is that on a dry weight basis, “hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC, and any plant with greater than 0.3% THC is considered to be “marijuana”.
How does CBD Affect Dogs?:
Like humans, dogs have an Endocannabinoid System that made up of cannabinoid receptors that CBD can bind to that may help regulate a variety of processes in our bodies.
Is CBD Safe for dogs to have as a treat Everyday?:
Of course it is! There are actually so many benefits of taking the CBDdog treats everyday. Getting the right dose is something you will have to experiment with and consult with your veterinarian about. But the best way to start is using the lowest dose of 5mg first and see how your pet acts and then increase their dose based on their body weight.
What are the Benefits of CBD for your dog?:
Well, since these treats are also paired with high quality ingredients like Suntheanine and Sensoril Ashwagandha, they help by Keeping dogs calm and composed. That is a huge reason I love these treats for my dogs behavior. They have also been studied to help with cognition function, memory recall, learning and overall brain health!
The Zesty Paws Mobility chews also have Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM to help you with dogs hip and joint health so that they can continue exercising which they love so much!
I hope you learned a lot about CBD for pets and enjoyed this video of me with my dog Blue.
