Many people don’t realize that animals can experience the same range of emotions and symptoms that humans can. At Qulture, we love our furry friends. Dogs, cats, birds, and other pets can experience pain, inflammation and anxiety, just like people.

Animal cannabinoid systems work incredibly similar to human’s, so it is safe to assume that the positive benefits of CBD work the same way. In fact, many pet owners have reported excellent results. They’ve reported lower anxiety, better sleep, and decreased pain in their pets. As the humans who know their pets best, we’ll take their word for it.

For a long time there were no formal studies on CBD in pets. However, in 2015, the FDA began to allow CBD to be utilized for testing and research purposes. A veterinarian named Stephanie McGrath received many questions about medical marijuana in relation to animals, and finally decided to conduct a study.

"We measured the pharmacokinetics, which basically means you give the dogs a single dose of all three delivery methods and then you measure a bunch of different blood levels over a 12-hour period," said McGrath. "So how quickly is the CBD absorbed, how high the blood concentration gets at that single dose, and then how fast the CBD is eliminated." 

McGrath discovered that the oil had the best pharmacokinetic profile. She then published a study showing that CBD may help reduce the number of seizures experienced by epileptic dogs. While her studies are preliminary, McGrath and others who are beginning to work on understanding how CBD affects pets are discovering its positive benefits.

It’s important, of course, to purchase CBD formulated specifically for animals, to ensure the dosage and ingredients are appropriate for animals. Qulture's CBD Pet tincture is mixed in Alaskan Fish Oil to give dogs and cats the taste they love and the added Omega 3 Fatty Acids they need. A good rule of thumb is to start with 5mg of tincture for every 10 pounds of weight.  Ready to put the pep back in your pup's step or stop him from shivering in fear during every storm?
