cbd oil for dogs with cancer amazon

Most, if not all CBD oil for dogs is made from industrial hemp (and ideally from organic farms), so they fall well within the 2018 FDA legislation.

Your dog may appreciate hemp seed oil if they need a boost in Omega fatty acids. The oil is super-high in good fats and antioxidants, which can help improve joint and skin health. A study on human participants from the Journal of Dermatological treatments found that a diet regularly including hemp seed oil can reduce the dryness and itchiness associated with dermatitis.

Amazon doesn’t officially sell products containing cannabidiol (CBD). But that doesn’t stop thousands of search results showing up for “CBD” on the Amazon marketplace. So what are all these products?

Amazon clearly prohibits the sale of CBD in its marketplace. The retail giant’s Seller Central website puts it in writing:

In people, CBD has been studied for possible use in cancer patients, both to treat the tumor(s) directly, as well as to treat the secondary symptoms of cancer and chemotherapy. Very limited research has been done on the use of CBD for dogs with cancer.

With regards to idiopathic epilepsy specifically, there is some research that suggests that CBD could be useful in reducing seizure frequency in these dogs. However, these benefits are only seen with dogs that are given traditional anti-seizure medications at the same time.

Cancer

Do not give dogs straight marijuana or any product containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive component of marijuana. There is simply not enough research to justify the use.

In theory, the anti-inflammatory benefit seen in arthritic dogs could also be seen in dogs with other types of inflammatory pain, especially back pain from intervertebral disc disease (IVDD).

However, the anti-nausea effects of CBD seen in people who undergo chemotherapy have also been documented in rats and ferrets, suggesting that dogs receiving chemotherapy may benefit from CBD treatment.
