CBD Oil for Cats – An Alternative Treatment for Managing Pain and Chronic Illnesses

CBD oil is marijuana without the hallucinogenic stuff (THC). There is a convincing and cogent story by a veterinarian, Dr Andrew Jones DVM, on the internet about the use of this drug.

CBD oil

He used CBD oil to treat his dog who died of cancer of the mouth and eye. His dog was in a lot of pain and could not eat. He tried the strong narcotic Fentanyl and a strong NSAID both of which did little or nothing to help. He tried CBD oil and his dog responded well. He started to eat and showed clear signs of being without the pain he had suffered from. Dr Andrews had four more quality weeks with his dog.

It seems that vets and pet owners are becoming more interested in using medical marijuana as an alternative medication to manage pain and chronic illness.

CBD is short for ‘cannabinoids’. They are found in the cannabis plant. They are non-psychoative which means there is no associated ‘high’. Dr Andrews says that they are a form of therapy “without the unwanted side effects of typical drugs”.

Specifically CBD oil has been used to treat:

  • Arthritis in pets. CBD has a “potent anti-arthritic therapeutic action, resulting in both joint protection and clinical symptom improvement”.

    Long term use of CBD does not, it is claimed, “elicit negative effects and does not induce tolerance”. In other words long term use is acceptable and the medication goes on working with no downsides.

  • Cancer
  • Anxiety – research indicates that it reduces subjective anxiety significantly.
  • Seizures – CBD may inhibit seizures and the severity if seizures. It may (I think this is work in progress) help with epilepsy.
  • Nausea – research found that CBD to be effective in preventing and suppressing nausea in pets due to disease or medication.

I think I’ll leave it there because I am not a vet but I am sure that concerned cat owners might like to discuss CBD oil as an alternative treatment under the right circumstances. It is another string in the bow of treatments especially when conventional treatments have failed.

Does anyone have first hand experience of their cat being treated with this medication?

    I think you might do well to make an appointment with a psychologist, but I can also advise you to look into Terpene Isolate . It is a safe and natural dietary supplement. Overall, this is great for mental health issues. For me personally, this supplement helps to cope with anxiety, stress, and thanks to it I can relax.

    Your talk is close to me. Besides, I also want to say that relieving stress is important for me, so I have a desire to consume cannabis in order to feel better. Accordingly, does anybody know something about it? This is really important for me to know where it’s possible to order something like that.

    I don’t know, I didn’t really like the pills for good sleep. I have tried this for several months and it has not helped me with sleep problems, anxiety, and stress levels. I have consulted many different doctors and I must say that one of the best things that really help me with my sleep problems are CBD products. My durga said he found a site with good reviews https://joyorganics.com/pages/duluth-ga. I know it’s weird, but they really helped me sleep.

    People frequently talk over with the cannabis plant as hemp or marijuana, depending on its THC content. Hemp plant life that have been legalized with the aid of the legislature beneath the Farm Bill have to comprise much less than zero.Three% THC.

    Hi. I would like to know if the CBD product is harmful to a person or can it be freely taken as an analgesic and relaxing remedy?
