CBDV Cannabinoid for Pets

What is CBDV? Cannabidivarin

What is cannabidivarin CBDV? Read this article to learn about benefits of CBDV for pets.

Cannabidivarin CBDv is one of many minor cannabinoids commonly found in cannabis sativa or strains lower in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), like that of the hemp Earth Buddy grows in Colorado. CBDv is a non-intoxicating or non-psychotropic plant cannabinoid that will not get pets “high”. Discovered over 50 years ago, Cannabidivarin (CBDv) shows very little binding affinity with cannabinoid receptors but therapeutic potential on gene sensory pathways and nerve cells associated with cat and dog gut health. Medical cannabis patients have recently been seeking CBDV for irritable bowel issues, central nervous system (CNS), and neurological disorders.

Similar to CBD, Cannabidivarin (CBDV) shows therapeutic potential to attenuate certain nerve cells associated with pets’ inflammatory response in the intestinal tract. Additionally, CBDV and CBD are non-euphoric plant cannabinoids that share similar beneficial effects, in that, they act on peripheral systems in the body. Minor cannabinoids, like CBDV, play a pivotal role in the use of medicinal cannabis and the synergistic effect of full spectrum hemp extracts.


What is CBDv Used For?

Early research on CBDV showed little mechanistic action of the minor cannabinoid, but due to the fairly recent legalization of medical cannabis CBDV has garnered interest by holistic veterinary practitioners. The field of traditional veterinary medicine has historically relied on pharmaceutical drugs commonly accompanied by harsh sideBenefits of CBDV for dogs and cats can help with seizures and other stress related issues. effects. The combination of pets being over prescribed these drugs and pet parents seeking more holistic or natural remedies for dogs and cats has lead the way for holistic veterinary practitioners to use cannabis compounds like CBDV.

Further research is currently needed on use and benefits of CBDV for brain excitation and other common neurological disorders in dogs and cats that can lead to tremors and convulsions. Little, to no, controlled clinical trials have discovered the root causes of these symptoms but many holistic veterinary practitioners have pointed to over processed pet foods and genetic factors. Due to the increase in cat and dog allergies, cat and dog gut health issues, and other signs of stress the holistic veterinary community is beginning to show interest in the benefits of CBDV.

With Cannabidivarin (CBDV) naturally occurring in the full spectrum CBD oil Earth Buddy uses to create pet supplements, minor cannabinoids add to the synergistic effect of medicinal cannabis. CBDV’s presence in our 3rd-party lab results is a key indicator for pet parents that they are using a safe, botanical supplement. Full spectrum hemp extract benefits for dogs and cats come from the fact they contain minor cannabinoids contributing to what is called the entourage effect.

What is the Difference Between CBD and CBDv?

There is very little difference between CBD and CBDV other than their molecular structure. Both CBD and CBDV are naturally derived from the cannabis plant or hemp, but their effects on the endocannabinoid system in pets may vary. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout our dogs and cats body and when cannabis compounds are introduced they often engage or activate specific cannabinoid receptors. Both nonpsychotropic plant cannabinoids have low binding affinity, but often act as agonists to cannabinoid receptors and other peripheral sites.

CBDV is simply the propyl analogue of cannabidiol (CBD), the predominant cannabinoid found in our organic calming supplements for dogs and cats. Both of these cannabinoids help to promote a normal inflammatory response in dogs and cats by engaging the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and the central nervous system (CNS). However, Earth Buddy’s philosophy from day one has always been focused on using whole plant hemp extracts that contain a variety of minor cannabinoids and terpenes, as opposed to focusing on single molecules.

How CBDv Interacts With Cat & Dog Health

In the case of how CBDV affects cat and dog health, we must first briefly review the ECS or endocannabinoid system in pets. The ECS is a chemical signaling system in the body that interacts with almost every biochemical function and is comprised of a system of cannabinoid receptors and enzymes. The ECS is found in all mammals and even some exoskeletons like bugs, arachnids, and crustaceans. Endogenous cannabinoids are naturally produced by the ECS to promote balance or homeostasis in the central nervous system and a variety of other peripheral chemical signaling pathways.

As cats and dogs age the ECS can become deficient or better known as “Endocannabinoid Deficiency”, which stems from a number of factors such as poor diet, cat and dog quality of life, and environmental factors. By introducing non-euphoric plant cannabinoids, like Cannabidivarin CBDV in conjunction with a full spectrum hemp extract, the ECS is re-engaged or activated. Due to the fact pets age much faster than humans even younger adult dogs and cats can show signs of aging that may allude to ECS disfunction. CBDV may be a potential treatment in this case, but further research is needed around the benefits of CBDV and the ECS.

Benefits of CBDv in CBD Oil for Dogs & Cats

Phytoannabinoids or plant-derived cannabinoids act in retrograde; or retrograde signaling to the ECS and other dog and cat health systems. As opposed to pre synapse to post synapse (example: neurotransmitters dopamine & serotonin), CBDV and other cannabinoids work backwards in order to communicate what the body needs. In other words, full spectrum hemp extracts for dogs and cats containing CBDV are activating the ECS response and balancing issues in the body.

The Entourage Effect of Full Spectrum CBD for Pets Containing CBDV

With pets aging, environmental factors, and chemical toxin exposure the ECS may become deficient, which is why cannabis research has shown the importance of providing our pets with a variety of hemp-derived cannabinoids. Cannabidiol (CBD), CBDa, and minor cannabinoids like CBDV work synergistically to magnify the beneficial effects of medicinal cannabis for dogs and cats. Single-molecule or isolated cannabinoids have historically fell short in comparison to whole plant or full spectrum CBD oil for dogs and cats with health issues.

Below is a list of potential uses and benefits of CBDV for pets:

Neurological Benefits of CBDV for Dogs & Cats:

Neurological issues in dogs and cats are unfortunately becoming more common due to over processed pet foods, chemical toxin exposure, and environmental factors. Symptoms of these neurological issues include tremors and convulsions that are often traumatic, and in some cases, life threatening for the pet. Looking at cats and dogs inflammatory response is one potential treatment of this issue. Fortunately, more clinical trials are being conducted by veterinary institutes on the therapeutic potential of cannabis compounds.

Controlled clinical trials using full spectrum CBD oil for dogs containing minor cannabinoids, like CBDV, have shown great efficacy and safety. Around 30% of all dogs suffering from neurological issues involving tremors and convulsions are drug-resistant. The great news is that the combination of CBD for dogs with minor cannabinoids, like cannabidivarin, can help to manage these symptoms.

Finally, the British Journal of Pharmacology conducted a study on mice to note the efficacy of CBDV for 3 common neurological issues also commonly found in dogs and cats. Their conclusion was that CBDV showed significant mediation of neurological issues and is a potential treatment that needs further research for other species.

CBDV Can Calm Dogs & Cats:

Much like CBD, CBDV has the potential to help calm dogs and cats in similar pathways. Due to its binding affinity with TRP or Transient Receptor Potential channels that are primarily responsible for various sensory pathways including heat, discomfort, normal inflammatory response, and stress. In 2019, a human clinical trial was conducted on the benefits of CBDV on brain excitation and inhibition systems. This study showed promising evidence that CBDV may have potential treatment implications due to cannabidivarin CBDV’s ability to modulate brain excitation through transient receptor potential (TRP) mechanisms.

A stressed dog or cat may contribute to a lot of pet parent stress both inside and outside the house, but signs of stress in dogs and cats could be just the tip of an ice berg regarding their health. Consistent stress in cats and dogs can lead to a number of other cat and dog health related issues including poor gut health, weakened inflammatory response, and increase sensitivity to allergies. When shopping for calming supplements for dogs and cats, especially a pet CBD product, it is important look at their 3rd-party testing protocols and confirming the product is full spectrum containing CBDV.

Cannabidivarin CBDV for Cat & Dog Gut Health

The dog and cat digestive system is one of the most important factors when discussing the health of our pets. Mainly due to the fact that their digestive process is shorter than humans. Dogs and cats process and absorb nutrients and directly display benefits or deficiencies in their diet. At the same time, the ECS plays a pivotal role in the health of all mammals, but none more important than the role it plays in gut health for dogs and cats. The abundance of cannabinoid receptors found in dogs and cat’s digestive system suggests that our pet’s microbiome can be enhanced with the use of minor cannabinoids, like CBDV.

Dogs and cats suffering from nausea due to travel or stress can often experience symptoms of a weakened immune system. By engaging the endocannabinoid system with full spectrum hemp extracts for dogs and cats, containing CBDV, we may be able to manage pet’s sensitivity to common stressors like car rides, grooming appointments, and digestive upset. Focusing on cat and dog gut health should always be a first line of defense when addressing their overall quality of life, but this should start with evaluating their diet, lifestyle, and then possibly including a cat or dog supplement.

Earth Buddy Products With CBDv

As stated above and throughout our many resources on the site, Earth Buddy believes in using the whole cannabis plant to derive a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. The whole philosophy of using botanical supplements is predicated on the fact that there is a synergy in preserving the naturally produced plant compounds and not altering them in any way. For this reason, any of our cat and dog supplements containing CBDV will always be accompanied with a botanical variety of cannabis compounds to achieve the entourage effect.
