CBD For Animals and Your Pets
We know you love your pets just as much as we do! Let's celebrate the many ways we can keep our pets happy and healthy for as long as possible. 

Texas Canna RN’s premium CBD pet products are designed with their health and safety in mind! The majority of our products contain fruit seed oils, herbs and plant extracts, in combination with CBD, to enhance the beneficial effects on the Endocannabinoid System. CBD treats have become a popular way for pet owner's to help their furry friends live healthier. 

Does your furry friend:

• Experience stiffness or have a hard time getting up and about?
• Suffer from stress due to storms, going to the vet, or being left alone?
• Have medical ailments or take prescription medications?

Your Pet has an Endocannabinoid System too!

ALL mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), a network of intricate receptors located throughout the entire body, thought to be involved in vital processes, health and healing. The ECS is made up of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) and enzymes. Like humans, our pet’s ECS may also be modulated by triggering these fundamental pathways which are thought to lead to health benefits.

Mammals naturally produce endocannabinoids, similar to the plant based phytocannabinoids found in the agricultural hemp plant, cannabis and many ECS modulating herbs. Like humans, our pets are often subjected to the many inflammatory processes from food and their environment, which can lead to a multitude of health ailments and issues. Cannabinoids have been shown to interact with, and are triggered by, phytocannabinoids which may help promote balance and well-being.

There are two main cannabinoid receptors in the body called CB1 and CB2. The two most common endocannabinoids that signal, modulate, regulate and affect these CB receptors are Anandamide (AEA) and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). This applies to our pets too!

At Texas Canna RN, we represent naturally based pet products that have been scientifically formulated and veterinarian backed. Providing your pet with a profile of synergistic, plant based compounds and terpenes that are naturally present in organically grown CBD Oil. Our pet treats, oils and pet care products are all natural. Many pet parents are on a journey to a more holistic and effective alternative to pharmaceuticals. All of our products are selected with safety, quality and consistency as our top priority.

Clinical Efficacy of Cannabidiol Treatment in Dogs:

Osteoarthritis and CBD
In July 2018, Cornell University concluded from a randomized, placebo-controlled four-week double blind study that showed how CBD helps dogs with Osteoarthritis and Pain. At weeks 2 and 4 of the study, veterinarians noted significant decrease in pain scores and increase in activity from baseline. Lameness (limping/guarding) was reduced or improved. Over the trial, lab chemistry was performed at each visit on the dogs with no significant negative effects or changes noted.

Epilepsy and CBD
The James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Colorado State University presented its findings in July 2018 of a CBD study on canines with Epilepsy, led by Neurologist, Dr. Stephanie McGrath. In the double-blind clinical trial, 89% of dogs enrolled had a decrease in the number of seizures. Larger CBD and Epilepsy studies are currently underway at CSU with many more dogs enrolled.
