The recent surge in the popularity of CBD has led to an explosion of misinformation and outright lies, especially about giving CBD to dogs. Many of the claims are not fact-checked, are overly negative, or just plain incorrect. Here are 5 lies about giving CBD to dogs and why it is actually safe to give your furry pal some CBD.
Lie #1: CBD From Hemp & Marijuana Are The Same Thing.
This is a common misconception and many people worry about exposing their pets to the dangers of marijuana (THC) when giving CBD to their pets. While both are derived from the cannabis plant, CBD products like Joy Organics pet treats are made from high-quality hemp, the safer, non-psychoactive cousin of marijuana. Rest assured CBD will not harm your dog.
Lie #2: It’s OK to give your dog a CBD product with THC in it.
No! Some sellers argue that a very small amount of THC is ok for dogs, but we believe the only safe THC is no THC! While pups can never overdose on CBD, even trace levels of THC can be dangerous. Choosing a product from Joy Organics, where every bit of THC has been removed, is the only way to truly ensure your dog’s health and safety.
Veterinarian Benjamin Otten of “allCREATURES” veterinary clinic in El Cerrito, Calif., said he looks for these telltale symptoms when identifying “marijuana toxicity” in a dog:
- Wobbly movements, like a person who is drunk
- Dribbling urine
- A dazed or glazed look in their eyes
- Low temperature
Lie #3: All CBD products are basically the same.
This is an incorrect assumption. All CBD products are NOT created equal. Some manufacturing companies do not even follow federal, state, or local regulations. A quality, trustworthy CBD product such as one available from Joy Organics is always clearly labeled with the amount of CBD it contains. In fact all of their products are professionally tested by a third-party lab to ensure its efficacy and purity.
Lie #4: It is Ok to buy CBD without a third-party COA.
A certificate of analysis (COA) proves that a product has been tested by an impartial laboratory and found to contain the amount of CBD it claims. It also verifies the product is free from THC and contaminants. If a company does not display a COA on their website do not trust their product You can view Joy Organics lab results here!
Reading a lab report can be a bit daunting but here is a guide created to help us lay people understand. How to read Joy Organics lab reports.
Lie #5: CBD will cure anything that ails your dog.
While CBD has proven safe and effective for treating a variety of ailments in people and dogs, it is not a magical cure-all. Beware of unscrupulous brands that make far-fetched promises. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. However, please note current, on-going, research shows a high-quality CBD product, such as one from Joy Organics can help your dog in the following ways:
• Anti-inflammatory property that promotes healthy joints, especially in aging dogs.
• Promotes a sense of calm, especially in dogs with anxiety or phobias.
• Reduces the frequency & severity of seizures.
Joy Organics stands out from the competition because of their commitment to quality and honesty.
Joy puts your dog’s well-being above anything else!
