Pain can be debilitating for both dogs and humans. When it is, your dog wants relief just as much as you do. CBD can help relieve your dog’s pain and ease its suffering. A 2006 study indicated that cannabinoids, such as CBD, can help alleviate pain for those suffering from neuropathic, migraine, fibromyalgia, inflammatory, and cancer pain.
Epilepsy and other seizure disorders can affect both dogs and humans. As one of the first health conditions to be approved for treatment with CBD, the research is extensive and conclusive — CBD can help treat seizures.
Like humans, dogs display certain behaviors when they have anxiety. People with anxiety disorders often panic, yell, or snap at you. Dogs with anxiety will chew up things, bark, or pee in the house. Since CBD relieves anxiety in humans, it could work for pets as well. One article from the American Kennel Club (AKC) about CBD for anxiety in dogs suggests that CBD has a calming, yet drowsy effect.
