Fields of application
The applications of CBD in animals are as diverse as the cannabinoid itself. Below we have listed some of the most common applications:
- Wound Healing
- Digestive disorders
- mental disorders, aggression
- Skin diseases
However, it should be mentioned here that the animals do not necessarily have to be acutely ill to benefit from the advantages of cannabidiol. Even healthy animals can be administered cannabidiol to strengthen the animal's organism and to bring possible inconsistencies in the hormonal balance back into balance.
Can be dangerous to take
As mentioned above, no really serious side effects have been reported so far when taking CBD. Consequences can be for example:
Low blood pressure
These are of course not pleasant symptoms, but they are not dangerous and usually do not last long. However, if symptoms like these occur after taking CBD, it is important to reduce the dosage.
As a pet owner, it is also good to know that CBD products in Germany contain less than 0.2% (usually even 0%) THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which means that the product is not intoxicating. The animal does not get "high" by taking cannabidiol.
Nevertheless, it is not advisable to administer cannabidiol to the animal without discussing the plan with a veterinarian (preferably one who also deals with cannabis). The veterinarian will be able to get a clear picture of the animal and give precise instructions on how to treat it with cannabidiol.

Painkillers can be partially reduced or completely discontinued - we recommend working out a plan for this together with your veterinarian.
