If you have a little bit of knowledge about CBD, you would know that it offers a myriad of health benefits to humans and pets alike. Just like humans, extra questions arise about the efficacy of CBD during pregnancy.
We already know that CBD can help relieve common problems like nausea, pain, anxiety, and sleeplessness, symptoms commonly associated with pregnancy. While there are a wide range of synthetic drugs available to help our pets through these times, they often come with a wider range of undesirable side effects that can affect both the mother and the fetus.
Several cannabinoids have also been proven to impact the healthy development of a fetus (with THC being the major culprit), but CBD has shown no such tendencies. Although research is still in its early stages, preliminary evidence shows that CBD can successfully be used as a natural alternative to synthetic drugs commonly used during pregnancies, eliminating the side effects while still delivering the health benefits.
Although this is a good sign and CBD is probably right for your pet during pregnancy, there are a few important factors to note when considering the use of CBD for your pets;
A supplement or oil made from hemp extracts are the safest way to ingest CBD during pregnancy.
It is important to note that THC is still harmful to the healthy development of embryos; this means that your CBD should be sourced from 100% hemp extract without any traces of THC or other harmful cannabinoids.
The sensitivity of most pets to drugs and other compounds is drastically altered with the hormonal changes that come with pregnancy. This makes it imperative to consult with a veterinary doctor and re-evaluate the dosage while monitoring your pet for any changes in mood, eating habits and overall health condition.
