cbd oil australia for dogs

The Hemp Industry Act 2008 (the Act), allows the cultivation and supply of low THC hemp fibre and seed production in NSW, under controlled conditions.

“I was buying hemp oil from a different business and was finding the cost starting to just get too expensive. I was paying $198 for a 50ml bottle and stumbled across Black Sheep Oils in my search for another supplier that wasn’t going to bust my bank account, but still have a good product. I am a hairdresser of 20 yrs and as like many of my fellow hairdressers, I suffer from sore feet, sore back, sore hands and sore knees. Since taking this oil along with the hemp, arnica and comfrey cream, I have noticed a big difference in my pains and aches. I love it!! I leant my cream to my mum and had to steal it back from her as she loved it for her hands and arthritic feet too. I have also been sharing my hemp oil with my aged dogs and now have 3 ‘pups’ running around like crazies. I cannot express how good this product makes me feel and it obviously makes my dogs feel good as well. I have just put in another order to give mum her own cream so she can stop stealing mine and a hemp oil for the dogs, so I can stop sharing mine with them. You have a really good, respectfully priced product Mac. You and all your team should be proud.”
– Tracey, 5th Jan 2021“… My 16 year old doggie has also had improvement with her anxiety , dementia and sore joints. I find it cheaper than other places , it’s Aussie made,and was delivered in 24 hours and paid via PayPal.I may start cutting down on some meds and even give up some of my expensive supplements. The only negative is the tumeric stains on contact so be careful.I have only used about one third of the 100ml bottle so should last about 3 months for both of us. Thank you Mac”
– Toni Wilson on 26 Oct 2020 ( Hemp Oil in MCT (Coconut Oil) with Turmeric) “Bought for my 14 yr old Border Collie who has arthritis in hind legs. I’m also 59 yrs old and have some arthritis in back and hips. Been using 4 drops morning and evening for both the hound and myself. Dog appears in less discomfort and seems better since commencing. He has his up and down days but generally has more energy and seems less stressed. Has also eased my own pain and feel more mellow.”
– Tim L on 15 Sep 2020 ( Hemp Oil infused in Almond Oil with Turmeric) Thanks Mac for the great value compared to others online and fast service. Product arrived promptly and well packaged. Prior to trying this vet prescribed Gabapentin which caused tremors and severe unsteadiness after first pill – do your researchbefore administering pharmaceuticals. No side effects observed at all with the oil, only benefits. Would definitely recommend to others to try”“I wanted to say huge thank you! I brought this hemp oil about 2 weeks ago to give to my dog for her anxiety– and she is a different dog! In such a short period I have seen a massive change, her anxiety was quiet crippling and she is a large dog so it was becoming unmanageable. Since I have been giving her the oil morning and night her entire gait and body language has changed – I can see physical changes not just mental. And it means we don’t have to go down the road of life long pharmaceutical medication.
It’s absolutely fantastic to see her genuinely happy, confident and comfortable- truly an amazing product!”

– Jamie Dawson on 11 May 2021After helping my Vet pay his kids Uni fees,I tried this stuff on my snow white hairy Wolfhound with a skin condition, and occasionally no hair due to the problem. He also gets the odd, benign growth, which look like jumbo blood blisters, and some times bleed profusely for short periods. Vets remedy= $700.00. Two drops of this in his tucker daily= Hairy Dog. Two drops on the growths daily = no growth in 5-7 days. Wonderful stuff, it certainly works for Us. Seemingly no side effects, Dog happy to play and run as per normal. The Vet costs had me considering putting my Mate down, no need now. Two very happy customers.
– SteveGurney on 10 May 2021 “More than happy. I initially bought it to combat pain but its had a surprising effect on reducing anxiety.
My dog is fearful of loud noises and petrified of storms, since introducing hemp oil she has significantly settled and no longer shakes and paces. She’ll actually sit for the dose. I love it.”
– Kim Maree on 20 Mar 2021“…5 cats.. strays included who have been getting 1 drop morning and 1 evening in their meals and feuding is now just about non existant.. they always had a bowl that they could lick coconut oil and still do but not so much now with product..very highly recommended and customer service is 10 stars.. thanku soo much”
– KhloE on 13 Mar 2021“My big old dog and I have been sharing this oil for around 5 months now. My dog has been a lot more active as his arthritis symptoms have reduced.I use the oil for joint inflammation and recurring shoulder pain. It doesn’t fully eliminate this pain, but it does greatly reduce it. I really didn’t realise what an effect the oil was having until I stopped using it while on a trip away from home. My shoulder began to cause me a lot of grief and I needed to take pain medication which I hadn’t required since starting CBD. I have repurchased this product and will happily continue to do so.”
– Steph Kosowski, 14 Feb 2021 ( Hemp Oil in MCT (Coconut Oil) with Turmeric) “My much loved 18yr old cat has severe arthritis ln his hips, has hyperthyroidism & suffers from seizures, besides his hyperthyroidism medication he had been on anti inflammatory medication which can damage his kidneys. He has 3 drops of hemp oil twice a day & 4 drops at night. He no longer has the anti inflammatory meds, he’s moving easier, seizures reduced and he is a much happier puss. His fur has also become soft & smooth. I add the oil to his food as he is one very fussy puss. Thank you Mac and team, my vet is amazed at the improved condition of my beautiful old cat.”
– GK on 9 Feb 2021 ( Hemp Oil infused in Olive Oil – no Turmeric) “…One of our dogs suffers from seizures and after giving 4 drops twice a day with food her seizures have decreased noticeably. Such a relief. Also the other dog has a deformed paw so she is having 1 drop twice a day for prevention of future arthritis.”
– Pamella Barben, 31 Jan 2021 ( Hemp Oil in MCT (Coconut Oil) – no Turmeric)
“Wished I found these sooner! I stumbled upon Mac’s product while looking for natural medication for our senior dog who has seizures. I got the tester pack, gave two drops every two days to our dogs in combination with vet meds, used the balm/salve on myself for muscle pains (i love it) and used some oil drops to massage my husband (lower back pain) and it gave him a good nights sleep. Ordered another tester pack for my Mother in Law for her joint pains as well.”

“We’ve been using this product for a while and are getting great results with back pain and joints. Also are now trying it with our elderly dog.”
– Rhonda Christensen, 1 May 2020“I purchased the product for my dog who has significant pain issues. She was taking medication that made her sleep all the time. After ONE dose the change in her is remarkable. She can move more freely and has reclaimed her joy in life. She no longer takes the other meds. I know the product won’t cure her and she is slowly becoming more frail. However the oil is seeing her through the last phase of her life and has indeed extended the time she has left.

Our hemp is grown right here in Nimbin Australia, which has a long history of growing hemp.

For dogs, however, CBD has been studied to be effective in several specific health concerns and more clinical research is currently being done to further learn about other potential diseases and health problems which it can treat or improve. Health benefits of using CBD for dogs include:

With the increasing popularity of CBD in Australia as an effective alternative treatment option for humans, the focus is now slowly shifting to man’s best friend. Though several clinical studies have been conducted to see the effectiveness of CBD for animal use, the market is currently filled with medicinal CBD products specially made for dogs and other pets.

What are the health benefits of using CBD for humans?

As Australian veterinarians have the discretion to prescribe cannabis products for pets, note that these products currently available in the market contain very low levels of CBD. It is legally sold in the mass market with very low CBD concentrations to avoid substance abuse and to be safe from toxicity and overdose, as explained by Phil Brain who is a practising veterinarian and a proud member of the Australian Veterinary Association or AVA. Brain also states that AVA keeps an open mind on the matter but they strongly advocate for products which have been thoroughly tested.

When choosing for your pet, make sure to find a CBD product that is specially manufactured and formulated for dogs. Just like other pet treats and edible medication, this can assure pet owners that the product is free from other toxic substances, like chocolates and xylitol, which might cause even more harm. Opting for organic CBD products is safe as well, as it is free from pesticides and solvents. Specially-formulated edible products for animals also take into consideration the pet’s taste and scent preferences, making it easier for the pets to consume the medication or food without any problems.

In California, however, legislation has paved the way for legal medicinal use of CBD and this has translated to a more open view of CBD among professionals, including veterinarians. The veterinarians and veterinary technicians practising in the said state are allowed to discuss the use of cannabis in treating dogs and other domestic pets.

Kieren Anderson was looking for a way to relieve the anxiety his pet pooch, Lola, experienced every time they took her to the groomers, which was "quite often".

He said CBD produced from hemp oil was legal for animals, while humans needed a doctor's prescription.

Key points:

Mr Brunskill also said CBD had virtually no ability to make you or your pet high because it contained little or zero tetrahydrocannabinol — commonly known as THC.

"CBD oil is an anti-inflammatory so it treats a number of things from arthritis, because that's obviously inflammation of the joints, to anxiety as it definitely has an effect on the mood," he said.

The centre with researchers based mainly in Newcastle and Wollongong looks into both CBD and medicinal cannabis containing THC.
