CBD for dogs

Crufts is a firm fixture on TV at the moment, so it’s time to celebrate our love for healthy dogs of all shapes and sizes. With CBD for dogs a growing trend among pet owners, is it time you optimised your pets’ health and wellbeing with CBD, as well as your own?

Is CBD for dogs a popular choice?

It may seem like a strange idea to give CBD to dogs. But all life forms with a spine and central nervous system have an Endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is the body’s complex network of neurotransmitters that cannabidiol (CBD) seems to interact with.

Its main purpose is crucial; to help the body maintain optimal health and achieve a state of balance, where everything in our body is working in harmony. More studies need to be done, but there is promise that CBD functions in a similar way for our furry friends as it does for humans.

Our products are aimed for humans, so if this was a topic that interested you, then do speak to your vet first.

How much CBD?

Due to the extreme size differences and body weight, it is not ‘one dose suits all’.  When picking a high grade, whole plant and vegan CBD oil, such as the 3% concentration of CBD. 

For every 10 pounds in weight, you could choose to add 1mg of the Amma Life 3% CBD oil to their daily quota of food and mix well.

Any information on CBD for our furry friends is scarce and often vets would look at information available for humans as a starting point. Cannabidiol is widely considered to be low risk. This has led some pet owners and vets to believe that CBD is suitable, and potentially safe for dogs. Though the jury is out until further information is obtained.

It’s important that you speak to your veterinarian if you’re thinking of administering CBD to your pet, particularly if they are already taking regular prescriptions, as CBD can interact with other medicines. All Amma Life products are designed as food supplements for human consumption.
