Is Hemp Good For Dogs?
Now more than ever, humans are taking advantage of CBD's benefits, but did you know your pet can benefit too? The same biological pathways CBD uses to create effects in humans exists in all vertebrate animals. It's known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and it's made of neurotransmitters and cannabinoid receptors that respond to CBD, helping to regulate the body and the mind.
What are some specific pet conditions that might benefit from CBD? Let's take a look.
If your pet suffers from nausea, it's likely that they also experience a loss of appetite, dehydration, and weight loss. You might be able to convince humans that they need to eat or drink to keep their strength up despite feeling nauseated, but that's not something you can tell your pet. CBD can prevent and suppress nausea, enabling your pet to resume regular activity and contact better.
Separation anxiety or agitation produced by loud noises or unfamiliar situations can be stressful for both pets and their owners. This can manifest in many ways, such as barking, whining, chewing, digging, or other destructive behaviors. Sedatives and anti-anxiety medications are available for pets, but they often come with undesirable side-effects such as lethargy and can be difficult to accurately dose. Giving your pet CBD can significantly decrease anxiety and has not been shown to have any adverse side effects.
Thanks to advances in health and medicine, pets live longer than ever these days. It's lovely to have new years to spend with our furry friends, but with older age comes chronic issues like arthritis. Pain, swelling, stiffness, and reduced mobility are all hallmarks of this degenerative joint disease in pets. Conventional NSAID drugs given to treat arthritis can have a significant impact on liver and kidney functions. CBD has been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce swelling and sensitivity to pain.
When our pets suffer, we as their owners suffer too. Bring relief to everyone with CBD pet oils and edibles formulated specifically for pets. Let your pet experience the same comfort and relaxation that you do!
