As a pet owner, we know you want to do everything in your power to make sure your pet lives a long, healthy life. However, you may feel questionable about what kinds of medicines and treatments you are giving your dog or cat.
Fortunately, a great alternative to pharmaceutical medications is on the rise and can help you minimize or eliminate the prescription drugs you are giving your pet, depending on their needs. Let’s talk about the wonders and benefits of CBD for pets!
What is CBD and How Can It Help Your Pet?
CBD or cannabidiol is a compound in the cannabis plant. It is not psychoactive, meaning that it won’t get you or your pet “high.” This is because the compound that causes the “high” is not CBD, but another compound in cannabis, which is THC.
When you give CBD to your pet, it interacts with their body through the endocannabinoid system or ECS, available in all mammals, which is responsible for managing various biological processes such as sleep, memory, immune response, and so on.
Why Your Pet May Need CBD
Problems and imbalances in the endocannabinoid system can lead to several ailments in animals, just like humans. This is because the system affects so many of our biological processes.
Studies have found that imbalances in the ECS can lead to various issues such as anxiety, depression, mood disturbances, and a weakened immune system. It has also shown that it can be linked to higher risks of diabetes, heart diseases, systemic inflammation, and more. If you believe your pet is at risk, or you simply want to improve their overall health and wellbeing, CBD oil may be exactly what they need.
Benefits of CBD For Pets
CBD oil is known to be a powerful painkiller and also has strong anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, it can help your pet with body pain, fever, arthritis, joint and muscle pains, and much more.
CBD is also a great stress reliever and is known to improve moods. Studies have shown that it also has anticonvulsant properties. So, if your pet suffers from seizures and convulsions, CBD oil can help your pet stay calm and weather any onset of tremors or seizures.
