The Benefits of CBD for Pets

As a pet owner you would surely want your furry companion to remain healthy and strong. So when something goes wrong, you spend considerable money trying to provide it with the best possible treatment. This is the exact reason why so many pet owners are turning to CBD for the promising results it brings to the table.

CBD works by tapping into the endocannabinoid system to give the body impressive therapeutic effects, such as restoring balance and promoting homeostasis, all without the fear of inducing any negative side effects or addictions.

There are more than 113 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, all of which have purported health benefits, but CBD is by far the most popular one. The best part is that CBD won’t get your pet high because, unlike THC, it is non-psychoactive – no mind-altering properties whatsoever.

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Hemp-derived CBD oil — like the products we offer on our site — is used by pet owners for its calming effects that can relieve stress and anxiety. It is fairly common for pets to remain in an agitated state for prolonged periods of time, due to separation anxiety, environmental conditions such as thunderstorms and fireworks, changes in family life, or other issues.

Prevents Nausea and Vomiting

A growing body of evidence suggests that CBD is effective at minimizing vomiting and nausea while also increasing your pet’s appetite. Do keep in mind that all bodies, human and canine alike, respond differently to CBD, requiring you to adjust your pet’s dosage accordingly.

Offers Relief from Inflammation

The way CBD binds to CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors allows it to become extremely effective against inflammation. In many cases, inflammation is a direct consequence of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, even cancer. Since inflammation often manifests as redness, pain, swelling, and immobility, it can wreak havoc on your pet’s quality of life. You can ease their discomfort with CBD!

Can CBD Products for Humans Work on Pets?

The simple answer is YES. And just as you would want for yourself, be sure your CBD products are as pure as possible – from organically grown hemp and free from pesticides, metals, and other contaminants.

The effectiveness of CBD oil for your pet also depends on the chosen method of administration. Sprays and tinctures squirted directly into your pet’s mouth are fastest into the bloodstream; you may also spray an appropriate amount in your pet’s dish or on your pet’s paw and watch them relish the experience as they lap it up!

A popular option is to use porous treats that can absorb the oil. If the treat is not porous, the oil will skid off the surface and very little CBD will reach your pet’s body. This method works best with small dogs because it is easier to implement and a little goes a long way.
