CBD For Dogs

Calming, pain relieving and inflammation reducer. These are only a few of the wonders CBD oil can have over your pet friend. It’s an ailment helper––without the psychoactive reactions associated with cannabis.

Cookie, an eight-year-old Schnautzer suffered from a stroke during the 2018 Holidays. The result was a poor equilibrium and a problematic internal sleeping clock. She would wake up at 2 AM, would bark for attention and wouldn’t want to go back to sleep. Times got harder in between every night, and the days seemed to get longer. Eventually, CBD was incorporated. It helped Cookie relax to the point where her sleeping schedule slowly turned to normal.

Cookie was everything her owners wanted in a dog. “She was playful and very smart. She would never sit still, and would always jump around the house. But that changed after the stroke. We couldn’t believe it.” Things quickly changed after the CBD intake, and the owners are coming back for more. “Think of it as a super-food for your dog!”

A Veterinarian’s Point of View

We went out on a search for vets and their opinions on CBD. We had the opportunity of speaking with Dr. Gary Ritcher, who is a leading Veterinary Health Expert with Rover.

“My education about CBD and medical cannabis, in general, comes from personal research and speaking with experts in the field.

I have performed a great deal of topic-related research. There is an entire chapter in my book – The Ultimate Pet Health Guide – on cannabis and I have written multiple continuing education courses for veterinarians on the topic.”

Scientific experts give us a supportive back-up feeling on CBD, and it only reassures the healing properties behind it. Before considering buying any kind of CBD treatment it’s recommendable to follow on these tips:

● Always consult your vet before trying CBD products on your dog. They can help you choose specifics and the right dosage for your pup.

● Make sure it’s hemp-derived CBD and it’s Certificate of Analysis, which basically shows the amount of CBD the product contains along with lab results.

● Always follow your dogs’ behavior after consumption, and gradually start on his dosage. That way you can really tell how well is working and monitor their reaction.

Science Behind CBD for Dogs

First thing is first, all mammals have an endocannabinoid system, but especially with the CB1 receptors, which are found primarily in the central nervous system and in the brain. The “high” or psychoactive experience associated with recreational or medical marijuana is caused by activating CB1 receptors.

It is important to never confuse CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Although derived from the same plant CBD has no psychoactive. The infamous THC will get you high and create the euphoric feeling most people recognize when they think about cannabis. CBD, on the other hand, will not cause any of these loopy feelings, instead, it takes over the body with multiple healing and preventive properties.

Dogs are benefiting from CBD in so many ways. With no known side effects, preventive measures and healing properties it makes it the perfect supplement to have at home when things start looking fishy. Here is a list of how the ways CBD can help your furry baby:

Epilepsy and seizures

It is a great nervous system booster. Helps relief recurrent seizure and stabilize dogs post-seizures.

Pain reliever

Reliefs pain and reduces inflammation that could eventually develop into diseases.

Bowel disease helper

Can normalize motility in pups with bowel diseases.

Cancer preventer and killer

Cannabinoids have shown to have antitumor cell activity in animal cancer models. This is a great way of reducing cancer cell spread and can be taken as a preventive cancerous measure.

Anxiety reducer

Aids with separation anxiety, and soothes stress especially when dogs are let alone for a prolonged time, new people visit homes or for long travels (in cars or flights).

Appetite increaser

Endocannabinoid plays a role in regulating the body’s feeding behavior.

Arthritis, joint and mobility issues

Can help increase activity and comfort in dogs

Where Can I Find It?

The past misconceptions over cannabis are slowly fading and new thoughts on their curative properties are arising. New market opportunities are opening doors to CBD distributors which reflects the future of the cannabis industry. Sooner than later you will be able to find different products on CBD, especially because it is now legal in the US as long as it follows regulations.

There are many online stores that offer CBD for dogs, including varied products like tinctures, treats and even infused with coconut oil.

CBD oil is the perfect option for all those dog lovers out there, who are looking for a different angle on dog treatments with the ultimate goal of bettering their lives. It is an alternative to conventional drugs, without the side effects and, for us humans the best part is that’s under budget. We all love our pups and we are willing to do so much for them. From creating safe spaces, playing with them and offering the best accessible options to optimize their health. There is no wonder why we call them humanity’s best friend.

Lily CBD

From a mother dealing with the physical and mental struggle of arthritis, fibromyalgia and sciatica, (former Director @ Spike Lee’s agency Spike DDB)  Russell Markus, Founder of Lily CBD, sought out healthy alternatives for his mom. The journey through chia seeds and sensory deprivation tanks ultimately lead him to CBD.

“I desperately wanted to provide my mother & close friends a healthy alternative to help with their physical struggles and stresses. As a society, we’ve been so conditioned to use pills that provide short term benefits, yet they often lead to long term issues. Let’s be honest, we all know friends and family who have been victims to these pills that have spread like a wildfire throughout our society. I was desperate to make sure that didn’t happen to the people I loved.”

The journey led him to launch Lily CBD, a hemp based CBD oil, born from a desire to give ourselves and those we love an alternative to the conventional ways of calming and nurturing the mind and body. Named after two loving maternal great-grandmothers from Brooklyn, Lily CBD, a CBD focused company, is crafted to help you feel alive.

Lily CBD was laser focused on sharing their organic practice CBD to friends and family in early April to begin collecting feedback. Starting in late May, Lily CBD launched in Soho House, The Assemblage, and Parsley Health and officially opened up their eComm store to the public in July. The currently company is self funded. “Finding partners was not about quantity, rather finding individuals & organizations who were to be progressive in their approach to health & helping society,” says Russell.

In August, the brand continued growing it’s partner network with locations like HealHaus, a wellness center in Brooklyn, Clover Grocery in the West Village, The End in Williamsburg, Office Coffee on Canal Street and STAE Beauty Essentials @ The Surf Lodge in Montauk. The brand will continue to expand its list of national partnerships throughout the remainder of 2018 and into the following year. “There’s a lot of product on the market, and I only feel comfortable sharing a CBD with the world that, I feel comfortable with my family taking. While I haven’t tried all the CBD that’s out there, our full-spectrum and terpene rich formula is unmatched to any lab results I’ve seen. ”

On LilyCBD.com, customers and clients can select from a range of strengths depending on their own personal ailments and general health. Lily CBD is committed to working with single source, organic practices, family farms and is creating a network of farms accessible within 100 miles of the state of New York.

“We needed to be able to sit with farmers, help in the harvest and touch & feel the product. As the industry grows, expected to far exceed $20 billion by 2020, there’s going to be a range of quality in the market. We have to strive to share high quality CBD grown with integrity.”

In order to ensure integrity when helping to heal while providing clients with the best knowledge possible, Dr. Soyona Rafatjah (Formerly of Parsley Health) joined Lily CBD as Functional Medicine Advisor. “CBD can be an extremely effective treatment for a multitude of diagnoses, and comes with minimal if any negative effects. I have personally seen patients of mine find relief from various conditions like seizures, insomnia, anxiety, migraines, and pain, when no other therapies were helping. I believe that a combination of the increase in positive scientific studies and the positive feedback by millions of people who use it, can be credited for the skyrocketing usage and access to CBD products in the past few years. A 2017 survey from Brightfield Group and HelloMD on 150,000 people showed that 42% of people who used CBD had stopped their over the counter and prescription pain medications. With drug overdose recently becoming the leading cause of death in Americans under 50, CBD could be potentially reverse this trend, saving millions of lives of people in their prime years.” says Dr. Rafatjah.

Lily donates 5% of all sales goes to charities focused on children with Autism, Epilepsy and Mental Health Issues.
