CBD AND YOUR PETS
As more and more research has been conducted on hemp post-legalization, scientists have uncovered a treasure trove of information surrounding CBD for both pets and people. Historically, CBD has been used to help pets with separation anxiety and chronic pain, though the more research is conducted, the more we're learning about the unique effects it has on pets. With that in mind, there are many reasons to want to give your pet CBD. Specially formulated pet treats and tinctures can help your pets lead a life of wellness, just like us.
YOUR PET'S ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
CBD was discovered in 1964, which led to the 1988 discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It was later found that all animals on earth have an endocannabinoid system that may work in the same way ours does— by maintaining the body's balance and acting as a communication system between the mind and the body. Much like people, your pet's ECS helps regulate things like appetite, muscle and fat tissues, hormones, mood and stress levels, immune system function, pain and inflammation centers, and metabolic functions. Your pet's ECS processes cannabinoids like CBD and triggers their bodies to produce more natural endocannabinoids to help the body stay balanced. Adding CBD treats, chews, and other forms to your pet's daily routine can benefit them in all the ways it benefits us.
BENEFITS OF CBD PET PRODUCTS
Since CBD is all about promoting balance within the body, it can help your furry friends manage various symptoms with little to no side effects. Over the years, many veterinarians have suggested CBD to pet owners, especially those with older pets, to improve their quality of life and avoid certain prescription medications that can help with pain but cause problems in other body areas. Many pet owners give their pets CBD to help them find pain relief, reduce anxiety, lower stress, improve moods, and increase mobility. CBD may also help soothe aching joints and other chronic pain and inflammation areas, boost wellness, prevent certain cancers from spreading, and help them relax.
