It may come as a surprise for some, but the benefits of CBD oil extend to our canine companions. While CBD has become a great pain reliever for humans, it also has beneficial effects on dogs.

The use of cbd oil for dogs is somewhat new for most people. However, most veterinarians would love to see it become more prevalent among dog owners. If you are wondering what kind of product it is and how it can help your dogs, here are the basic facts that you need to know about CBD oil:

What is CBD Oil?

CBD is the initialised form of Cannabidiol, which is a compound found in both cannabis and hemp. Unlike most presumptions, CBD does not have THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the compound responsible for producing psychoactive properties. CBD is the compound that contains the medicinal properties.

How available is it in the market?

Currently, there are over 50 states in America that have helped legalize the CBD compound. As such, you can already find them in major cities. However, it is essential to look for organic and high-quality ones to get better results.

How to administer CBD?

Using cbd oil for dogs depends solely on different factors. Pet owners have to take into consideration the weight and size of their dogs and the area that requires relief from pain. CBD can be administered to dogs orally.

Where to apply CBD?

There are many ways to apply CBD for dogs, and most of them constitute physical and chemical relief from certain disorders.

Treating seizures

Seizure attacks are not uncommon with dogs. For that reason, it is one of the most common conditions that many pet owners seek relief with. CBD oil can interact with the endocannabinoid system, a biological system that can control factors such as pain and anxiety.

When the components interact with these receptors, it does not trigger it, but rather encourages it to release soothing chemicals. As such, CBD oil application for dogs is great for calming seizures. Its benefits are even more prevalent in preventing seizure attacks, so look out for symptoms such as excessive drooling, unwarranted aggression, and nervous pacing. You can try alleviating these symptoms with the use of CBD oil, to prevent further dangers.

Arthritis and Joint Pain

Just like with humans, as dogs grow older, their bones become brittle, and joints become weaker. As such, they also experience the pain of having arthritis. It might be challenging to understand how painful it is for them, which is why it is essential to give them at least a sense of relief.

Arthritis is mainly caused by inflammation in the joints. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it is a great pain reliever for dogs. It is especially useful for aging dogs that probably would have difficulties in doing simple activities.

Arthritis is also a condition that can lead to more negative consequences if not treated early. More often than not, arthritis can lead to weight gain, which opens doors for more diseases and conditions, such as immobility and digestive problems. For that reason, it is highly essential to make sure to treat arthritis as soon as possible.

CBD Oil is the Perfect Companion for Your Pet Dogs

When it comes to ensuring that your dogs will lead a healthy and active life, having CBD oil within reach will help maintain their vigor and health.


People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
