Pets & CBD

All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (EC).  This includes humans and animals.  The EC is responsible for regulating homeostasis (balance) in our bodies through a variety  of mechanisms,  including communication between different cell types or intercellular communication.  

The CB1 and CB2 receptors that make up our EC are located in the same areas of the body in you as they are in your beloved pet and have the same effects, and for this reason some of the same products can be used for both you and Fido.  CB1 receptors regulate sleep, memory, emotional response, mood, appetite, temperature and pain.  CB2 receptors produce widespread anti-inflammatory effects through their location on the cells within our immune system.

Similarly, animals naturally produce the same endocannabinoids within their bodies as we do and can become endocannabinoid deficient like we humans do.  Our two most prevalent endocannabinoids are 2-AG and Anandamide.   It is equally important to supplement ourselves as well as our pets with plant- derived phyto–cannabinoids like CBD to bring us, and our our pets, back into balance, relieve our symptoms of these imbalances and help us to heal.


Due to our apparent size differences, the one most important factor to adjust if using the same product for yourself as for your pet, is the dosage. A good rule of thumb for animal dosage is 3mg CBD (one drop) /10 lbs of body weight or less.  So if Sparky weighs 20 lbs, start him off with 6mgs (2 drops).  For more severe conditions, double this dosage. As with our own dosing, be consistent and gauge the effects for at least a week, before increasing or ceasing.

NuLeaf Naturals CBD Oil  formula (and price) is exactly the same for pets as it is for humans.  Veterinarians now recommend administering the CBD oil by rubbing it on your animal’s gums or in its inner ear with your finger for best absorption.  If this is troublesome for you or your pet, simply add the drops to its food.  NuLeaf CBD Oil is solely the CBD hemp extract combined with the highly-nutritious, hemp seed oil as its carrier. No additives whatsoever.  It is one of the purest and most natural CBD products on the market for you and your pet. 

“I have used the NuLeaf cbd oil that I purchased from HelloHemp on Owen, my 18 year- old West Highland Terrier, for the last 3 months and what a difference.  His allergies have gone away.  His hair has grown back. He does not have trouble now getting up the stairs.  He makes it quite easy.  The NuLeaf oil has given my 18 year- old new life.  It’s amazing! “
