Phytocannabinoids & Pet Health
Pet owners are increasingly turning to daily CBD supplements to support the health and wellbeing of their four-legged family members. Although the American Veterinary Medical Association takes no official stance concerning CBD oil as a nutritional supplement, many vets and pets owners believe that CBD oil can be administered as a supplement to help the many conditions animals may experience. A scientific report in the Spring 2016 issue of the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA) reviewed how 631 pet owners used cannabinoids with their pets. Commonly reported benefits of cannabinoids were; provided pain relief, aided with sleep, helped relieve anxiety, offered nervous system support, reduced inflammation, reduced seizures or convulsions, reduced vomiting or nausea, helped suppress muscle spasms, aided digestion, helped with thunderstorm or fireworks phobia, inhibited cell growth in tumors and cancer cells, and helped with skin conditions.
