cbd oil for dogs traveling

CBD oil has proven especially beneficial for easing nausea and anxiety associated with car rides, because it can be given in advance of the stressor, allowing it to take effect before the dog’s symptoms escalate.

While most CBD products contain trace amounts of THC, Cannanine™ is 100% free of this controversial chemical. This is very important when using CBD for dogs, but can be hard to come by as the process of removing every trace of THC is quite expensive.

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of many chemical compounds called cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. Only one of these compounds is responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana – tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC). Unlike THC, CBD is derived from hemp, a safer, more medicinal form of cannabis.

Scientific research has confirmed that dogs (and many other species) have the same natural cannabinoid receptors in their brains, nervous systems and organs as humans do. Known as the endocannabinoid system, these receptors are involved in physiological processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory.

In order to reap the benefits of CBD, the compound is isolated from the hemp plant and concentrated into an oil that can be given by mouth or drizzled over food.

Many dogs are fearful during car travel because of the noise and frightening sensations associated with the vehicle itself, while others experience a combination of anxiety and physical car sickness. Extreme stress can actually manifest as nausea thanks to the vast majority of the nervous system being located within the gut.

The CBD compound activates the cannabinoid receptors and stimulates the production of serotonin, a natural chemical in the central nervous system that promotes feelings of well-being and happiness. In addition to the nervous system, serotonin is also found in the gastrointestinal tract. By stimulating the body to produce more serotonin, CBD naturally soothes the nerves in the gut as well as the brain.

When traveling with pets, it is wise to prepare for the unexpected. Treatibles strongly encourages bringing along a first aid kit for your pet. It should contain the basics – alcohol wipes, hydrogen peroxide, gauze pads, adhesive tape, bandages, disposable gloves, styptic powder, ice pack, disposable gloves, towels, saline solution, tweezers and scissors – to cover any potential mishaps that happen throughout the trip. We also recommend including Treatibles new Topical Cream.

Long distance travel can mean hours in a car or on an airplane. Even the most accepting and well-traveled pets can feel anxious. Keeping them calm can be the difference between a trip filled with cries, whining, or motion sickness to one that is relaxed, chill and fun for the whole family.

We recommend offering Treatibles around half an hour before travel is to begin and then every 4 – 8 hours. Some pets may require more frequent administration.

Rising temperatures and longer days mean summer is just around the corner. While we humans are looking forward to vacations, our four-legged family members may not share in our enthusiasm.

That’s where full spectrum hemp oil with naturally occurring CBD for pets comes in. It works with your pet’s cannabinoid receptors to help instill calm, balance and ease, making it ideal for pets with anxiety, digestive distress, discomfort and more.

Formulated with penetrating ingredients for maximum absorption, Treatibles Topical Cream is ideal for managing joint inflammation, burns, scratches and other minor skin conditions. When the Topical Cream is absorbed into the skin, the endocannabinoid system can utilize the full spectrum hemp oil to help regulate the neurological, immunological and physiological functions of the body to provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring.
