CBD water for dogs is a highly popular and more recent pet CBD product to come to market. There are several advantages to giving your dog CBD, it can especially help reduce inflammation and increase joint mobility, alleviate stress and anxiety. It can help stimulate appetite and provide your dog with more restful sleep.
There have been several clinical trials completed in the last year which show CBD to be particularly effective for dogs experiencing pain and osteo-arthritis. CBD reduced seizes in dogs by 75% and it showed improvements for dogs with allergies and skin issues.
There are many CBD products available to choose from. Finding a product that is easy to administer is key. Tinctures are a great way to go as they can be added to food, water, treats or administered directly to the mouth.
CBD water containing CBD has become quite popular. It is important to point out that many of these products contain Isolate – a form of CBD that is processed to remove all other cannabinoids.
CBD Isolate has been shown to potentially impact and increase enzymes in the liver. It is fine to be used topically but we would always suggest a Broad or Full Spectrum product if it is going to be ingested.
There are many nano CBD products on the market at present. Nano is a scientific process of breaking the CBD into tiny particles which hopefully can be more readily absorbed into the body and bloodstream.
Nano technology is not new, in fact it has been around for decades. Preliminary studies show that it improves the uptake of CBD although little is known about the possible impact these tiny particles can have on internal organs.
Which CBD Water for Dogs is Best?
Many of the CBD water brands currently on the market contain nano CBD as the tiny particles allow for it to mix with water. Also, the majority of the products appear to be isolate containing only CBD and no other cannabinoids.
Adding an oil-based product to water will not mix effectively making it difficult to gauge the amount of CBD you are giving to your pet. It is hard to exactly measure the amount of CBD in water even when it is evenly dispersed as dogs may drink infrequently and may spill their water.
Pet CBD Water Dosage:
A good rule of thumb is 2mg – 5mg per every 10 lbs of dog weight.
E For example a 20-pound dog would receive a dosage between 4mg – 10mg.
