Available Research on How CBD Works
One of the primary uses of hemp extract is to treat cancer and tumors. Research conducted by A.B. Hancock Jr. Memorial Laboratory for Cancer Research, Departments of Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Pharmacology, Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology, Center in Molecular Toxicology, Vanderbilt Ingram Comprehensive Cancer Center concluded that “The antiproliferative and apoptotic effects produced by some of these pharmacological probes [CBD] reveal that the endocannabinoid system is a promising new target for the development of novel chemotherapeutics to treat cancer.” Another study published in 2018 found that CBD inhibits the growth of cancerous cells in mice with pancreatic and bladder cancer and prevents future cancerous growths in the mice treated with CBD. The conclusion of this study noted that CBD could be a viable option to treat cancer in both humans and animals.
Full spectrum extract (CBD) is also a viable option to treat epilepsy and seizures, according to recent research. In a 2017 double-blind study conducted by Colorado State University’s James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 89 percent of dogs who received CBD had a reduction in the frequency of seizures. Additionally, there was a significant association between the degree of seizure reduction and the amount of CBD concentration in the dog’s blood. This was not the only study to find CBD to be a successful anti-epileptic supplement for pets. Yamazaki University of Animal Health Technology in Japan found a decrease in seizure intervals in 66 percent of dogs studied. To read more research, click here.
The CBD Dog Health Difference
The proprietary formula for HEAL combines full spectrum extract (CBD) with hemp seed oil to reduce the number of seizures and duration of seizures, and to shrink and eliminate tumors while preventing future ailments. Hemp seed oil has the perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to support a healthy coat and skin.
Our full spectrum extract (CBD) is 100 percent food grade and is made using CO2 extraction, which means we do not use chemical solvents like butane (lighter fluid) in any of our products. Additionally, all of our products undergo testing by third-party for purity and potency, and certificates of analysis are available to view prior to purchasing.
Full ingredients: 1100 mg hemp CBD oil, MCT oil, and hemp seed oil. CBD Dog Health products are made with non-GMO hemp and are pesticide and herbicide free.

Dosage Information: Despite common misconceptions, dosing has very little to do with your dog’s size or weight. Finding the right dosage depends on your specific dog, their specific ailment, and how sensitive their endocannabinoid system is. For fastest and most thorough absorption, lift the lip and apply dose directly onto the gums, as the most direct way into the bloodstream. If added to food, the medicine may not be as effective and can take significantly longer (30-45 min.) to reach the bloodstream as it works its way through the gastrointestinal system.
Based on research and from our experience, we recommend the following dosage:
- Cancer – Research shows success with 50-100 mg daily. We suggest starting with 35-50 mg and increase if needed.
- Seizures– Start with 35-50 mg daily and/or during seizure activity to stop seizures from occurring. Please consult your veterinarian if your pet is on phenobarbital before weaning.
- Autoimmune Diseases – Start with 35-50 mg daily and increase if needed.
Split the amount of mg into small portions throughout the day (micro-dosing) for best absorption and to keep it in the bloodstream. The medicine peaks at 2 hours and is gone from 4-6 hours.
Unlike many traditional oral medications, research has proven that CBD is effectively and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. A study conducted by the Department of Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel concluded that: “CBD was observed to have a large volume of distribution [in dogs studied].”In a study conducted by the Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, dogs were found to have a substantial amount of receptors in their endocannabinoid system, specifically in the spine, which allows dogs to more effectively use CBD.
Your pet cannot overdose from CBD. If the dose is too high, they may become sleepy or experience diarrhea.
