Can Cannabis Cure Your Pet? Is It LEGAL? Will It Hurt Your Pet?
Maico is a giant Poodle - he was 85 pounds in his prime - now he is 70 pounds.
Today he is 12 years old, has cataracts, arthritis in his hindquarters, watery tumors is nearly deaf, and is having occasional bowel "accidents." What has happened after 3 weeks of ingesting oil made from Cannabis or hemp or weed or pot? Find out...
Look, we are very conservative people. We have been taught for decades about the evils of weed. However, when a loved one with four legs is in trouble things change in a hurry - we are not rich - we would not spend thousands to save a dog (as sad as that is).
What changed our minds about medical weed? (FYI - "Marijuana is a derogatory term meaning "one who smokes too much" and should not be used. Hemp is Hemp - the commercial plant contains less than 1% THC while the current "get high weed" has been cross-bred to contain 16% or more THC).
Medical weed is promoted for its' ability to kill pain from cancer or anything and it does that. However, there appear to be AMAZING healing attributes that have been largely ignored.
So, what about Maico (our giant Poodle - a very large Standard Poodle)?
Well, after 3 weeks of ingesting a small amount of oil made from Cannabis at bedtime, Maico is regaining strength in his hindquarters. He had gotten to the point where I would have to lift him (70 pounds) up on our bed. He still believes he cannot get up on his own, but if I simply hold my hands lightly on his hindquarters - up he goes. This morning during his walk he ran a bit and kicked up his hind paws!
His hearing has improved from hearing almost nothing to being able to tell the direction from where the sound is coming - and the "sound" is my voice below the level of a shout.
His cataracts are bad - one eye is worse than the other. Just 3 weeks later, his better eye is visibly changed - yes, we believe the cataract is thinning. He can once again catch treats. The other eye is probably getting better but we can't visually see the change in that eye as of yet.
His big tumor (outside of his rib cage) seems to be shrinking a bit.
We have had zero "accidents" in the last 2 weeks.
He sleeps like a rock and wakes up alert, hungry, and interested in what is going on around him. His general spirit is improved.
What will happen from here?
We are going to increase the amount of Cannabis Oil we are giving him - and we will experiment with giving it to him during the day. What will it do? Who knows! All we know is that this dog is as dear to us as our children - and we will miss him so much if he dies or if we have to put him down... we are ready to be bold in our treatment.
How are we doing this legally?
My wife has a condition that is helped by the oil. We obtain it legally under California Medical Marijuana law (MML). This required a visit to a Physician (although in California a Naturopathic Doctor can prescribe MM to a human).
The cost is relatively low. There is no recorded death of a human from hemp - it does not affect the respiratory system. We give Maico the oil by placing a small amount on a small piece of cracker. I insert the cracker into a piece of hotdog. I open his jaw and place it toward the back of his mouth.
What information made us think this oil would help our dog Maico?
Rick Simpson is a Canadian layman who has had great results by making Rick Simpson Oil... Rick has given the oil to over 5,000 people with some remarkable results. If you go to YouTube and put "Rick Simpson Tribute" into the search window the tribute video will come up. It is long but it is worth your time - it may help your pet. Humans who use the oil (which is more like grease) start off with a dab the size of half a grain of short-grain rice. We started Maico on half that.
The best policy is to start out with very little - especially with small animals.
We all want our pets to have long healthy lives and peaceful ends. Watching the tribute video about Rick Simpson will give you enough information to make a decision for your pet. Official Research into the real benefits of Hemp or Cannabis is just starting to wind up. Desperate situations call for bold action. Only you can decide if it is right for your pet.
