CBDs, Cannabinoids, Endocannabinoids & Canines

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. As my huMom & I sniff about the inter-webs, we see a lot of people asking about CBD oil use for their good dogs. A lot of “experts” seem to know a lot about it. But it’s a very complex subject.

Research into the medicinal benefits of cannabis & hemp products are still in the early stages due to these plants being illegal for decades. But it seems clear that there are many compounds that can help in regards to pain management, calmness & even help with seizures.

There is a lot of information out there, some good, some not so much. For the next few Monday’s, I’ll be barking about what is known about the potential benefits of Cannabis & hemp oils. As well we will be sniffing out what is an endocannabinoid and how does it pawtain to us canines.

Full disclosure, Knotty Toys for Good Dogs has an affiliate program with Charlotte’s Web CBD products but at present, I do not  take any CBD products. With that said, I have in the past & we are open to using it again when we feel more knowledgeable.  Of course we would discuss this with our Vet first.   All of this will be shared with you later in a future post.

So stay tuned for the next few Monday’s & I’ll sniff out facts from fiction.

Charlotte’s Web Million Dollar Initiative

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting.

Last week I was sad to learn of the passing of Charlotte Figi. She was the brave epi-warrior for whom the CBD extract Charlotte’s Web was developed. Knotty Toys for Good Dogs is an affiliate of Charlotte’s Web CBD products for dogs & cats.

To honor the legacy of Charlotte & her mom, Paige Figi, the Stanley Brothers, who created & continue to develop Charlotte’s Web, are donating a million dollars worth of their CBD products to help those who are struggling financially during this pandemic. Their charitable partners at the Realm of CaringAdaptive Training Foundation, & High Fives Foundation will distribute the donated Charlotte’s Web products with the hope that no child, mother, brother, co-worker, or friend goes without the support they need when it comes to their wellness during this time.

If you or someone you know needs assistance with getting Charlotte’s Web product at this time, please visit: https://www.charlottesweb.com/2020-cwsupport to find out how.

Stay home, stay safe.

CBD Oil

Health

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. My huMom & I sniff out a lot of Facebook pages & groups that focus on canine epilepsy. In those groups & pages it seems almost every day someone is asking about CBD oil. A frustrating reality is that in many places consulting your vet isn’t an option because vets aren’t legally allowed to even discuss it with clients, let alone prescribe it . So people go online to research.

Knotty Toys for Good Dogs is an affiliate partner with Charlotte’s Web Hemp products made by the Stanley Brothers. They can legally cell CBD Oil in the USA but must follow very strict guidelines not only in the manufacturing but also where, how & what they can say to promote their products. The same goes for us as affiliates, we are legally required to post a disclaimer on our store.

Governments are only now, slowly & reluctantly legalizing cannabis & hemp products. It’s a new scientific field & much research has yet to be done. In the mean time, buyer beware. Unregulated CBD Oils claiming to be a cure all can be a complete rip off containing little or no CBD. How the oil is derived matters a great deal as well. As does the plant it’s derived from.

My point is this is a very complex area. Science is just beginning to unlock the secrets within the cannabis family. One thing that seems promising is CBD can help with epilepsy, potentially shutting it down completely in some. I’m sure in a few years, there will be a wide range of thoroughly tested variations of CBD Oils that can be obtained legally. But for now, it’s still the “wild west”.

Do you use CBD Oils with your epileptic canine or feline? Have you spoken with your vet & were they allowed to offer guidance? Is it legal where you live? If you do use it, what sort of product do you use; a biscuits/chews, oil, extracts or balms? What results have you seen? So many questions from just one dog. BOL!

For the record I have tried it in the past & have experienced pawsitive increase cognitive behaviour but I do not take any CBD products at the moment.
