When it comes to dosing, we always recommend that the animals begin with roughly 0.1mg/kg, twice a day, and slowly work their way up until they are receiving 1 mg/kg, once a day. For example: Your dog weighs 22 lb/ 10 kg, we should be starting him at 1.0mg/twice a day, and then slowly increase the dosage until he is receiving a daily total of 10.0mg.
How Hemp Terpenes Work
The hemp plant contains a number of different chemicals (terpenes), including CBD,
phytocannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids. Humans and other mammals have specific
cannabinoid receptor sites. These sites are primarily in the brain and central nervous system,
and in peripheral organs, especially immune cells. They make up what’s called the
Studies show that many cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory effects, and can help with pain,
tumours, seizures, muscle spasms, skin conditions, appetite stimulation, aggression, anxiety
and neurological disorders.
How Hemp Can Help Your Dog
Hemp can help with both chronic and acute disease. Among chronic conditions, it can help
with arthritis, compromised immune systems, stress responses, aggression and digestive
issues. There are also studies under way into CBD’s effects on Type 1 diabetes, organ
diseases and cancer.
Veterinarians are also finding hemp terpenes can
be useful in treating acute ailments like sprains
and strains, torn ligaments, bone breaks and even
during post-operative care to reduce swelling, pain
If your dog’s taking conventional drugs for any of
these conditions, hemp may make it possible to
use lower doses of the drugs to achieve
therapeutic effects. Since conventional medicines
do have side effects, this is a useful benefit of
Does It Work Fast?
As with any herbal medicine, for most ailments you may not see an immediate effect. You’ll
need to be patient.
Your dog may feel some pain relief in a few hours but other symptoms like inflammation may
take a few days to show improvement.
First of all, we use hemp that has no THC. CBD hemp won’t make your dog high.
The most common side effect of CBD is that your dog may get a little drowsy – about the
same as if you gave him a Benadryl.
Natural Remedies for Seizures in Dogs – Dog Seizure Treatment that Works
As canine epilepsy research continues to mount, it’s becoming increasingly clear that animal
nutrition – similar to human dietary habits – can play a vital role in disease prevention and
longevity. The nutritional profile of dog food and snacks should ideally contain beneficial
phytochemicals and antioxidants, which serve as neuroprotectants, reduce inflammation,
ward off disease, and optimize nutrient absorption.
Aside from the anti-inflammatory effects, canine dietary habits should also strive to
strengthen your dog’s overall immune system function. A robust immunity response is vital in
preventing relatively small issues from becoming serious health issues. Researchers are
currently working on studies that examine the relationship between immune system health
and the onset of seizures.
Hemp terpenes from hemp including CBD (HT’s), reduces pain, inflammation, and anxiety as
well as seizure activity…Decades of research indicate that HT’s yields notable anticonvulsant
effects with minimal neurotoxicity. It reliably reduces neuronal activity and seizure
severity… HT’s affects several endogenous cannabinoid pathways simultaneously,
demonstrating a multiplicity of neuropharmacologic mechanisms of action. It works additively
and at times synergistically with other anti-epileptic drugs; this allows clinicians to more
readily introduce HT’s into a seizure patient’s drug regimen without reducing the
effectiveness of pharmaceuticals already “on board.”
As it turns out, the nervous, lymphatic and possibly other systems within the body already
house cannabinoid receptors, making them already prepared to respond to both phyto and
endocannabinoids. regulates neuronal excitability. When it falters, an “endocannabinoid
deficiency syndrome” may result, associated not only with seizures but also with the onset of
fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and other maladaptive states…
In fact, many integrative approaches for epilepsy also affect endocannabinoid states,
including acupuncture along with certain nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, dietary
changes, and, of course, Hemp Terpenes (HT’s).
