How it Works
It is interesting to point out that both humans and dogs have the same endogenous cannabinoid system. CBD acts by targeting these receptors located in the brain, organs, central nervous system, and immune cells that stimulate relaxing effects.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a substance that is found in a cannabis or hemp plant. Unlike THC that makes high’, CBD is NOT psychoactive but rather gives your pets a calming feeling and pain-relieving sensations without causing them any potential harming intoxicating effects.
The benefits of using CBD for your pets is incredible, with more people seeking the treatment for their best furry friends. Products containing this substance have opened up a whole new world for pet care.
Seizures and Epilepsy
Many owners turn to CBD when the pet suffers from seizures and epilepsy. High levels of CBD can manage seizures. Over time, it has been known to reduce the frequency of them, and in some cases get rid of the seizures altogether.
Even pets suffer from arthritis. Arthritis is the inflammation of joints that cause aching, pain, and other degenerative illnesses. As CBD is a pain reliever, it targets these aching joints and it soothes the chronic inflammation that prevents your pet from healing properly.
When your pet loses its appetite, it can be hard to distinguish why. Majority of the time, however, they lose it due to nausea. As a human, we won’t eat when we feel like that unless we take something to alleviate the digestive issue and receive pain relief. CBD can do this for your pet.
If you have ever suffered from anxiety, then you know that it is awful, and it would be the same for your pet, too. Many dogs suffer from anxiety and have been known to be depressed and extremely anxious in certain situations, such as when their owner leaves. This can result in destructive behaviors such as chewing objects, urinating, pacing, and more. CBD helps because it is a relaxing stimulant that calms your pet.
Unfortunately our pets can get cancer too, and when they do they have symptoms of nausea, loss of appetite, and chronic pain.
CBD allows your pet to feel comfortable during those difficult times and helps to reduce the side effects that cancer can have on your dog.
Pet owners are also giving small doses of CBD daily as it has been proven to aid in preventing and killing cancer by:
- Helping the immune system to kill cancer cells
- Blocks the cancer cells ability to produce energy
- Contains anti-tumor properties
