cbd oil topical for pets

The benefits I’ve seen working with CBD for pets are profound. Better attitude/mood, digestion, Inflammatory relief, and especially for larger and older dogs. Also, anxiety relief and definitely for rescues, tiny yappers, or door rushers. Plus I find that when dogs eat my oil their coat gets softer, and are overall happier, so it becomes easier to acclimate new pack members! Though as we all know, a happy animal is one that gets lots of exercise, beneficial nutrients, and healthy water!

You may be wondering how anyone in their right mind can give cannabis to an animal? Well, in this special CannaCon edition of #FarmsNotPharms, we swan dive with a twist into the rabbit hole known as the wonderful world of cannabis as it pertains to the application for some our favorite furry friends! Though, before I outline the 7 Easy Steps, let’s answer 3 frequently asked questions.

Whenever people wonder why cannabis is considered beneficial, my answer is always the same; we all have an Endocannabinoid system ! This blessing of a discovery has proven to help our body regulate our immune system, neurological system, digestive system, and more! All vertebrates, including spiders, have an Endocannabinoid system and we have known this since at least the 1980s thanks to the research of many, including Dr. Raphael Mechoulam who also identified Anandamide, an endogenous cannabinoid (created only in our body). Believe it or not, the US Government has publicly supported the medical benefits of cannabis since patenting 6630507 which actually references 12 other U.S. patents related to cannabis dating back to 1942!

Safe Methods

CBD is just one of over a 100 cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant, and it’s completely non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high. I have personal experience using CBD with humans, animals (& their owners), and of course myself and my own wolf-dog Barkely who was lucky enough to benefit from cannabis throughout the second half of his incredible life and I must say, he inspired so many others to take the high road! Often while hiking, or at the dog park, many asked if he was still a puppy, and I attribute much of that to cannabis oils and a healthy diet.

**CO2 = industry standard extraction process for CBD oil, yet in my experience does not create an optimal product. In my opinion, the inferiority of CO2 extract is the very reason companies have to add flavoring or sweeteners, and/or other nano-enhanced gimmicks to their oil. Terpenes are the key. Terpenes are found to help cannabinoids surpass the blood brain barrier, and work together in concert, called the entourage effect. Retaining terps naturally without having to re-add them offers the precise chemical make-up the plant was created with, using no man made alterations to compromise the efficacy of our work, especially when we are talking about caring for the most important thing we know; life.

Treatibles Topical Cream is easy to apply. Simply place a small amount on the affected area, on the tip of a pet’s ear, or on a hairless area of the pet’s body and rub gently. This product is intended for external use only.

That is why Treatibles developed a Topical Cream especially for cats and dogs that is rich in dermal penetrating ingredients for maximum absorption.

As a topical, full spectrum hemp oil promotes a normal inflammatory response, helps reduce discomfort, and supports a strong immune system. It is also ideal for managing hot spots, cuts, burns, scrapes and blemishes. When absorbed, the endocannabinoid system can utilize the oil to help regulate the neurological, immunological and physiological functions of the body to help create calm, balance and ease and provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring.

“We strive to provide the most beneficial ingredient profile in all of our products,” said Julianna Carella, Founder and CEO of Treatibles. “As we developed the Topical Cream, absorption was a key element. DMI is a natural dermal penetrant that enables cannabidiol (CBD) and other key cannabinoids to be more easily absorbed into the skin. We also chose to include MSM, which not only supports joints, it can also increase the production of collagen and reduce redness from skin irritations.”
