One of the greatest benefits of marijuana is a stopping cancer cells from spreading.

It was found in the study, published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, that Cannabidiol has the ability to stop cancer by turning off a gene called Id-1. [1] In 2007, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, reported that CBD may prevent cancer from spreading. The researchers experimented on breast cancer cells in the lab that had high level of Id-1, and treated them with cannabidiol.

The outcome was rather positive, the cells had decreased Id-1 expression, and were less aggressive spreaders. In fact, the American Association for Cancer Research has found that marijuana actually works to slow down tumor growth in brain, breast, and lungs considerately.

 

Extreme high dose of marijuana can have a significant effect on your pet.
While this is an extremely high dose, you should know that if your cat or dog accidentally eats an edible or inhales smoke, it could suffer effects such as:

    Loss of coordination
    Seizures with the potential to fall into a coma
    Slow heart rate
    Vomiting
    Depression and anxiety

Fortunately, cats are picky eaters and are less likely to ingest cannabis. Cats don’t have a sweet tooth naturally, nor are they attracted to dried buds or unfinished joints.

 

The ‘low and slow’ mantra is worth following when using CBD oil for cats. As they are significantly smaller and lighter than humans, they require far less cannabidiol. Your first action should involve weighing your cat because its size determines the right dosage. As a general rule, aim for 0.1 – 0.5 mg of CBD per kilogram of body weight to begin with.

We have charts in our stores that suggest how much of of CBD per dose your cat will need based on weight. Pets that weigh 30 pounds may receive 4mg of CBD. There is also the issue of the medical condition. So stop by at our locations to get some CBD oil for your pets.
