Is 1.3 mg of cbd oil for anxiety

CBD Oil

CBD cannabidiol is one of over a 100 cannabinoids or phytocannabinoids. (naturally occurring cannabinoids from plants) “CBD is extracted from cannabis plants and processed as an isolate or as a full-spectrum oil combined with other related cannabinoids. CBD oils made with full-spectrum extracts are thought to have superior therapeutic effects versus cannabidiol-only oil. [4]

CBD can be refereed to as: (amounts vary greatly)

Hemp Extract

Phytocannabinoid

Hemp oil Does NOT contain CBD

There are two common strains of cannabis in use today — hemp and marijuana. Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than 0.3% of THC; marijuana has more than 0.3%. CBD products for pets are typically sourced from hemp.” [4] “CBD is thought to have many therapeutic properties, but unlike cannabis’s other main compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it doesn’t get users high.” [5] THC as found in marijuana can be toxic for dogs and cats so its important that any CBD product contain less than 0.3% THC. For comparison a 0.56 oz (16 g) edible cookie made from cannabis (marijuana) contains about 10 mg of THC which makes one cookie toxic for pets. [6] If your dog has ingested marijuana, call your veterinarian immediately or the Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) at (888) 426-4435.

There have been published studies on CBD use in dogs for osteoarthritis and epilepsy with promising results but for anxiety there are only anecdotal reports to date. [1] [2] Dr. Rob Silver, a veterinarian, herbalist and pioneer in the field reports “one of the most common applications for CBD is for anxiety and behavior issues in dogs. It seems to work very well at low dosages for hyper dogs.” [4]

If you live in a state that has legalized CBD, there’s nothing to stop you from giving it to your pet on your own. But experts say it’s a good idea to talk with your vet first.” [3] CBD does interact with some drugs and can have side affects so it is recommended to consult your veterinarian before giving it to your pet. Casara Andre, D.V.M., founder of Veterinary Cannabis Education & Consulting, “says, CBD can interact with medications, including those used by vets. Also, there’s less oversight and testing of products marketed for pets, and there have been reports of animals harmed by contaminated or spoiled CBD products, she says. There have also been reports of animals that seemed to get high from products, possibly because the formulations had more THC than was claimed. (CBD-only products are supposed to contain less than 0.3 percent THC.)” [5]

Q&A Cannabis and hemp products for pets with Dr. Robert Silver

Buyer Beware!

Buyer beware CBD products have been referred to as the wild west. “It can be hard to pick the best CBD oil because product labels often don’t list what they contain and, even then they do, many have been shown to be wrong.” CBD products are unregulated and you may not be getting any CBD in the product you purchase and some have major health concerns which could be dangerous. (See Fox 11 video) “cannabis plants readily absorb heavy metals, pesticides, and other potentially harmful chemicals that may be in the soil or water” [8] CBD products have also been found to be contaminated with a dangerous synthetic cannabinoid. [9]

Our tests of CBD products revealed that two products contained less CBD than listed and one contained significantly more. Actual doses ranged from just 1.3 mg to 22.3 mg, and we found that you can’t rely on listed amounts of “cannabinoids” to tell you how much CBD is in a product.” https://www.consumerlab.com/reviews/cbd-oil-hemp-review/cbd-oil/

A recent analysis of 29 CBD products for pets reflected:

“that only 10 of the 29 products were within 90–110% of the label claims regarding cannabinoid concentrations”

“Nine of the products were over 110% of the label claim”

“and 10 were under 90% of the label claim”

“two of these containing no cannabinoids.” (CBD)

“Heavy metal contamination was found in 4/29 products, with lead being the most prevalent contaminant”

Benefits of CBD products include:

Natural pain relief or anti-inflammatory properties

Some researchers agree that CBD may offer a natural way to control pain. A study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some lab animals.

The researchers suggest that the non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana, such as CBD, could be a new treatment for chronic pain.

CBD is already in use for some conditions that cause chronic pain, such as multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia.

Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals

There is some promising evidence that CBD use may help people to quit smoking. A pilot study posted to Addictive Behaviors found that smokers who used an inhaler containing the compound CBD smoked fewer cigarettes but did not have any additional craving for nicotine.

Another similar study posted to Neurotherapeutics found that CBD may be a promising substance for people who abuse opioids.

Researchers noted that some symptoms experienced by patients with substance use disorders may be reduced by CBD. These include anxiety, mood symptoms, pain, and insomnia.

These are early findings, but they suggest that CBD may be used to avoid or reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Epilepsy and other mental health disorders

CBD is also being studied for its possible role in treating epilepsy and neuropsychiatric disorders.

A review posted to Epilepsia noted that CBD has anti-seizure properties and a low risk of side effects for people with epilepsy.

Studies into CBD’s effect on neurological disorders suggest that it may help to treat many of the disorders that are linked to epilepsy, such as neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric diseases.

Another study posted to Current Pharmaceutical Design found that CBD may have similar effects to certain antipsychotic drugs, and that it may be safe and effective in treating patients with schizophrenia.

More research is needed to understand how this works, however.

Helps fight cancer

CBD has been studied for its use as an anti-cancer agent.

A review posted to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology notes that CBD appears to block cancer cells from spreading around the body and invading an area entirely.

The review indicates that CBD tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote the death of these cells.

Researchers note that CBD may help in cancer treatment because of its low toxicity levels. They call for it to be studied along with standard treatments, to check for synergistic effects.

Anxiety disorders

Patients with chronic anxiety are often advised to avoid cannabis, as THC can trigger or amplify anxiety and paranoia in some people.

However, a review from Neurotherapeutics suggests that CBD may help to reduce the anxiety felt by people with certain anxiety disorders.

The researchers point to studies showing that CBD may reduce anxiety behaviors in disorders such as:

The review notes that current medications for these disorders can lead to additional symptoms and side effects, and that people may stop taking the drugs because of these unwanted effects.

CBD has not shown any adverse effects in these cases to date, and the researchers call for CBD to be studied as a potential treatment method.

Type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is caused by inflammation when the immune system attacks cells in the pancreas.

Recent research posted to Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation found that CBD may ease the inflammation in the pancreas in type 1 diabetes. This may be the first step in finding a CBD-based treatment for type 1 diabetes.

Another promising use for CBD is as a new treatment for acne. Acne is caused, in part, by inflammation and overworked sebaceous glands on the body.

A recent study posted to the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum that leads to acne, partly because of its anti-inflammatory effect on the body.

CBD could be a future treatment for acne vulgaris, the most common form of acne.

Alzheimer’s disease

Initial research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that CBD was able to prevent the development of social recognition deficit in subjects.

This means that CBD could potentially prevent people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s from losing their ability to recognize the faces of people that they know. This is the first evidence that CBD has potential to prevent Alzheimer’s disease symptoms.
