How Hemp Extract Oil Can Help Your Pet Stay Healthy And Strong | Innovet Pet

Cannabis has become an increasingly popular medicinal herb for many people, and now many are starting to wonder if they can give to their pets so they too can have many of the same benefits.

Unfortunately for cannabis, while it provides a lot of medicinal benefits it has a habit of causing . . . well, you know a high. This led to Phytocannabinoid Rich (PCR) hemp oil, which leaves behind the high while still providing a lot of the same great therapeutic medical benefits.

PCR oil is fantastic for a lot of health problems because of its vast amount of medical properties, which include being an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic, and antipsychotic.

PCR oil also helps those that are suffering from epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting, gastrointestinal issues, neuroinflammation, and nausea. Because PCR oil leaves marijuana’s mind-altering effects behind, pet owners are now using PCR oil to help their pets from everything from anxiety to arthritis to cancer.

What is PCR Hemp Oil?

PCR oil is a collection of cannabinoids taken from medical hemp. But don’t let the name, cannabinoid, fool you because even our own bodies produce cannabinoids. Actually, all mammals produce cannabinoids and even have specific receptors that respond to them. It appears that mammals produce these, endocannabinoids, as a way to balance and stabilize different internal systems.

Phytocannabinoid Rich (PCR) oil is the main cannabinoid found in PCR oil and provides the majority of the therapeutic effects, but all the cannabinoids work together and appear to support one another’s therapeutic effects - this has been dubbed the entourage effect.

How do they work together you ask? Well, while PCR is a cannabinoid it can’t attach to cannabinoid receptors, instead, it attaches to an enzyme that normally breaks down another cannabinoid, called anandamide. This little guy is one of the cannabinoids that’s created in the brain and normally provides the body with natural therapeutic relief and benefits before the enzyme breaks it down.

Benefits without Side Effects

As you can see, PCR works largely by promoting a natural and normally occurring process in the body. Because of this, PCR has little side effects and many don’t even experience any at all.

While PCR will not harm the liver and kidneys like many pharmaceuticals, it can affect the metabolization of these hepatic drugs - hepatic means drugs metabolized in the liver. This is because PCR attaches to and inhibits an enzyme the breaks down drugs in the liver. Usually, this only occurs when taking PCR in high doses. But, it’s always a great idea to talk to your veterinarian if you have concerns.

To judge the severity of this side effect, consider that grapefruit largely does the same thing to hepatic drugs and will also inhibit the same enzyme in its own way.

Precautions and Avoiding Overdose

When giving your pup PCR hemp oil, make sure it has no THC in it and that’s it’s derived from medical hemp. While THC toxicity in humans is practically impossible, dogs are much more sensitive to it. While rare, dogs overdosing from THC has occurred, and caution is advised if purchasing a hemp product that has notable levels of THC.

Importance of Having Pure PCR Hemp Oil

After viewing the growing popularity of PCR oil, several companies are marketing their product with overly ambitious and often false claims about their PCR oil. When purchasing PCR products online, you should be selective about the health of your pets. So, be sure your pet is taking PCR hemp oil with low to no THC.

Innovet Pet is a great store that offers of PCR products made from organic medical hemp with no THC. Their labels show you the concentration of hemp extract oil in the product and they offer a dosing calculator which is a big help.

My Chihuahua was on phenobarbital for seizures. I weaned him off and began giving him innovet CBD oil 125mg twice a day. He has been off phenobarbital for several months and has not had any seizures. He also seems to feel better. Hes more playful and has the pep nack in his step. I’m so happy I tried this

My Rottweiler Kuno is 6 years old and has been diagnosed with Evans Syndrome. We almost lost him, he was hospitalized and had a blood transfusion. He’s now stable. I want to know if the CBD oil would benefit his disease.

About a month ago we rushed our 14 1/2 year old schnoodle to the emergency vet. It came on suddenly and within minutes she couldn’t even stand. It turns out she had two huge tumors, one on her spleen and the other attached to her liver. Even the ER vet gave us little hope and didn’t recommend surgery because of the location of the tumor on her liver and the high potential that surgery would kill her. We were told that we could have her put down that night, see our regular vet the next day and take her home with pain meds and blood clotting herbs to try and just keep her as comfortable as possible. I was devastated but not willing to give up yet. So we ordered the pure CBD from Innovet and they were so awesome to rush it to me when I wrote and told them about our situation. In a couple of days we had her on the minimum dose and she tolerated it so well that in just a few days more we had her on the maximum dose for her weight. Within a week after starting on CBD she was running around and playing like she had zero pain at all. In the last couple of days we have noticed a little hyper anxiety in the evening so I have taken her dose down just a little for her afternoon and evening doses. We have her xrays and ultrasounds from her visit and one day are planning to get another xray to compare and see if the CBD has cured her “cancer” (which is what we were told it likely was even without being able to do a biopsy) Thank you so much Innovet for making our fur baby feel so much better and possibly saving her life.
