CBD has become increasingly popular in recent years because of its health and wellness properties. Users and scientists alike have claimed that CBD promotes relaxation, joint mobility, skin health, better sleep patterns and relief from anxiety both in humans and animals.
Pet parents across the globe are using CBD oil as a means of treating their health and also the health of their pets. Dogs, in particular, being the greatest beneficiaries of the spike in Pet CBD sales around the world.
How does CBD Oil help pets?
There are a number of daily stressors, aches, and pains that animals may face throughout their lives. They are very similar to human beings in many ways.
In the same way that people take CBD oil to help with a range of issues, animals can benefit from CBD in the same way.
The following paragraphs describe how CBD oil works in both humans and animals.
You may be unfamiliar with the term Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It is a function within all mammals, with a role to maintaining a healthy balance in the body. It does so through a series of receptors called CB1 and CB2. Otherwise known as cannabinoid receptors.
Cannabinoids, like CBD and CBDa (from the hemp plant), act as neurotransmitters to tell our body's receptors what to do. This applies both to humans and animals.
The result? Regulation of various processes in the following areas:
- Spinal Cord
- Immune System
- & More
If the ECS is not functioning properly, it can affect us in many different ways. We can relate many health symptoms to a faulty ECS and this is where the assistance of CBD can be helpful.
When our body isn’t producing enough cannabinoids of its own, the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant can be used to speak to our body's own receptors.
That is right, our body produces its own natural equivalent of the compounds found in the cannabis plant which is why cannabinoids from hemp can become a powerful and natural way to support our ECS.
Here are some of the most popular therapeutic uses for CBD in pets:
1: Our pets can suffer from anxiety and depression. CBD oil has been shown to improve the production of 'feel-good' chemicals in our furry friends without the burden of severe side effects, delivering a calming and relaxing effect.
2: One of the most common reasons people use CBD for themselves or for their pet is to help them fall and stay asleep. Since CBD can help your pet stay calm and relaxed throughout the day, it will also aid them throughout the night.
2. With its healthy balance of omega 3s and fatty acids, it promotes skin, coat, and nail health.
3. If your dog struggles with maintaining a healthy appetite CBD may be able to help by interacting with the many CB2 receptors in the gut. When CBD interacts with this part of the ECS the stomach relaxes and eases vomiting and nausea.
4. CBD may help promote a healthy cardio-circulatory system by regulating blood pressure, which in effect reduces the risk of stroke, heart attacks, and metabolic syndrome.
6. It may help calm an aggressive or hyper dog to the point of contentment.
As a pet owner, there is nothing worse than watching your pet go through pain or distress, by using CBD oil we can treat their ailments.
CBD has been known to treat cardiac issues, inflammation, lack of appetite, neuropathic pain, nausea and various anxiety issues within humans and their pets.
