Pain Management in Pets


CBD Oil For Pain In Dogs & Cats
Probably the most promising research on CBD is that done on pain. From nerve pain to arthritis, it works well. Without the harmful side effects of pain medications. 
CBD binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and nervous system and this helps change the way your dog's brain perceives pain. 
Plus, CBD can help manage the other symptoms that accompany pain, such as sleeplessness and nausea.
CBD can also help manage acute pain from injuries.

I personally use a product containing CBD and other herbs daily for myself and for my older dog using a product now available in the UK which is a combination of CBD and a glucosamine / chondroitin supplement. In my experience it works extremely well.
See here for an example of the oils and Bites

It has been found to be safe to give hemp along side NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory drugs such as meloxicam) but there have been reports of initial increased lethargy with opioid type drug such as tramadol for the first few days of starting CBD. Start with a low dose. In most cases you will find you can decrease these drugs in any cases and often stop completely.
