CBD for Exotic Birds: What are the Benefits?

One could chuckle at the irony of the term “flying high” when it comes to the idea of “pot” for birds. However, understanding the benefits of giving CBD to exotic birds, and knowing the ‘Difference Between CBD, THC, Cannabis, Marijuana, and Hemp’ is an important first step.

As discussed by Shape…


CBD is hands down the most popular component of this herbal remedy. Largely because CBD doesn’t have a psychoactive component, which appeals to a range of enthusiasts — including those who aren’t trying to get high or who might have adverse reactions to THC.


That being said, the question still remains – what at the benefits of CBD for exotic birds?

Allow us to answer!


CBD for Exotic Birds: What are the Benefits?

As with humans, dogs or cats – the science behind CBD is emerging. With it, the benefits for mammals, as well as birds, reptiles and fish. The benefits, so far, appear to be…


  • Helping birds with their mobility and joint issues
  • Preventing feather plucking
  • Relaxation and neurological support for a “squawking” bird
  • Immune system support addressing all of the above, and more


So how can this ‘plant oil’ tackle so many concerns? To explain this, one needs to understand the endocannabinoid system.


Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

In a previous blog we wrote about ECS and How It Works, stating…


The endocannabinoid system is a regulatory system that every mammal shares. This system has been studied for its effectiveness in regulating and maintaining homeostasis in the body. ECS receptors are found to regulate nervous, digestive, reproductive, immune, and metabolic functions. As more studies emerge regarding cannabis products and their vast benefits for mammals, we learn more about how the ECS works. We currently understand this system to recognize cannabinoids (elements of the hemp plant) and use them to help maintain the ECS, and thus the body. This powerful regulator and CBD work together in perfect harmony to help areas that need it. Whether the condition is epilepsy, insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain, inflammation, and many other ailments, the ECS and CBD were a match made in heaven for offering relief.


Bird lovers, like any pet-lover, want to see their creatures living a happy healthy life. And CBD oil for birds has become a popular supplement of choice.

Overall, the answer is – yes. Although keep in mind, any dog or cat (or bird) could experience gastrointestinal upset due to the wrong dosage.

However, to be safe – if you recognize your pet is not responding well to a CBD product, discontinue use.
