Another CBD Journey Pupdate

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today I’m feeling wooftastic because it’s day 111 with no seizures. My huMom continues to be very pleased with my prawgress since I began taking my full spectrum CBD oil. I’ve been receiving daily micro doses since July 11th.

This is by far the longest I’ve gone seizure free since before our house fire back in the spring of 2016.

My huMom is happy to say that my focus is pawtastic. My coordination has continued to improve as well. Just the other day I leapt gracefully onto, then over a log I normally would stumble over or would require assistance with.

I’m sleeping well, eating well & huMom says I smell wonderful. We haven’t observed any negative effects of me going on full spectrum CBD oil. I will continue receiving my micro doses daily. My annual blood work will be in December & huMom has decided to wait until then to have a discussion with my vet about the possibility of a reduction in my pharmaceutical AED’s (anti epileptic drugs). That’s a goal I hope to meet.

In the meantime, huMom is constantly studying everything she can find about cannabis & it’s therapeutic & medicinal applications. Especially in regards to defeating the epi monster.

Olivia’s CBD Journey Pupdate

Health

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting another pupdate on my CBD journey. My first dose was July 11th & I’m happy to bark that I am 69 days seizure free!

In that time we’ve experienced heatwaves, intense humidity, extreme temperature changes, thunderstorms, & the full moon.  All of which are known triggers for me, but I’m happy to say, no grand mals.

Some of the many pawsitive changes may seem little to some but for this dog, they are wooftastic quality of life improvements. For example, today a delivery guy came by & he received my full throated bark of, ‘Don’t you even think about it dude!” but when huMom came out I settled down & looked to her for what to do & then went inside when asked. In short, I have been less reactive.

Yesterday on our walk a neighbor’s dog came huffing & puffing down the driveway,  acting all dog gone crazy, rushing at us as we walked by her house. In the past I would have been Miss “come at me B” & so out huffed & puffed her, but not this time, I remained calm & let the humans take care of it.

As I mentioned in my last pupdate, I have been hanging out past the fenced in area off lead.  I’m a good girl who now pays attention, comes when called & for the most part understands the boundaries.

My appetite is great, with little digestive issues if any. (huMom is making me include this next part but I do pawtest). I don’t burp.  I’m a lady, I hiccup.  Anyway, huMom noted in my journal that I burp/hiccup less & when I have it is less, um, noticeable.

My overall focus has greatly improved & I am calmer & more attuned to my surroundings which means less bumbling into things on our forest walks.

We are feeling pawsitive in moving forward & I have already ordered my 2nd bottle of full spectrum CBD Oil. huMom did extensive research into finding a reputable, effective product. So far we haven’t observed any negative effects from the CBD Oil. We are taking it slow giving the CBD time to repair my endocannabinoid system.  At the moment there seems to be no reason to increase the small amount I’m taking.

We haven’t had the opportunity to have my blood work done, but huMom is eager to see what if anything has changed with the hope of eventually being able to reduce the dosage of one or more of my harsher meds.
