What is full spectrum hemp oil?
Full spectrum hemp oil (also known as CBD oil) is a natural extract from the hemp plant, containing a full spectrum of cannabinoids and other beneficial compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids. It has no psychoactive effect, making it an ideal natural supplement for dogs and humans.
All mammals including humans and dogs have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in their bodies. This vast system is a complex network that helps to maintain the body’s balance. The ECS contains two main types of cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 that are located all over the body. Full spectrum hemp oil fits into these receptors like a lock and key, providing specific functions in the health and wellbeing of your dog
What does full spectrum hemp oil do for dogs?
While research on the therapeutic properties of full spectrum hemp oil for dogs is ongoing, customers have reported a number of benefits associated with giving their pets full spectrum hemp oil. It can help relieve arthritis and improve mobility, reduce pain and inflammation, soothe anxiety, overall cardiovascular health, reduce severity of seizures, improve digestive and skin health.
It’s important to note that it might take a little while for your dog to obtain the full benefits of full spectrum hemp oil. It is intended as a natural supplement to support your dog’s health and should not be used in place of any medications your dog may be on. If in doubt, we recommend discussing it with your vet before giving to your dog.
Full spectrum hemp oil has also been given to elephants and horses. In a recent study in Mexico, an older Asian elephant was given full spectrum hemp oil to see if it would improve her appetite and mobility. She also suffered from accesses that would not heal. After the end of the 8 week trial, the elephant’s appetite and mobility were greatly improved. She gained weight and her abcesses decreased in size, thereby improving her quality of life.
How much do I give my dog and how do I give it to them?
How much full spectrum hemp oil your furry friend needs is ultimately contingent on two factors: the quality and potency of the oil and your dog’s weight.
We recommend 1 drop per every 10-15kg of bodyweight. So if your dog is 10kg, you would give them 1 drop per day. If your dog is 60kg (like Loki), you would give them 5 drops per day.
You can administer the oil by applying it directly to your dog’s gums or the folds of their cheek. Another option is to add the oil on top of their food. It typically takes 30 to 60 minutes to take effect.
