It seems that lately there has been a big spike in the number of hemp and CBD products that are available on the market for our pets. And there is a reason why! CBD products are proving to have many benefits to our pets from both physical and mental stand points.
Here’s some of the great things CBD has to offer:
It Is Non-Psychoactive
Some may assume that because CBD is derived from the cannabis plant that it will make their pets high. This is not true. THC is the compound in cannabis that produces the “high” associated with pot while CBS is actually THC’s antagonist, providing calming effects while not producing that “high” feeling.
Because of it’s relaxing effects and non-psychoactive properties, CBD makes a great calming aid if your dog struggles with:
- Seperation Anxiety
- Travel Fears
- Fear of Thunder/Fireworks
- Vet Anxiety
When we gave CBD to our Doxie for anxiety, we noticed he had a very well balanced calm. He was not drugged up and sleepy and was his typical happy self without the anxiety.
CBD Helps Fight Cancer
CBD and other properties found in Hemp and Cannabis have been found to have great effects on cancer. CBD can stop cancer cells from growing and shrink/kill tumors.
CBD Relieves Pain
CBD is a safe alternative to prescription pain medications that can have damaging effects to the liver and kidneys as well as other side effects.
- Decreasing overall pain
- Reducing swelling in joints
- Reducing intestinal inflammation
Seizure Relief & Preventative
Our 15 year old Labrador Retriever had a very bad seizure when she was nearing the end of her life. It was absolutely the most horrific experience of my life as a pet owner. I felt helpless. I know many owners who have dogs that suffer from chronic seizures and the pain they go through.
In a study done relating the effects of CBD on those who suffer from seizures, 7 of 8 patients with epilepsy that was resistant to drugs saw a definite improvement within 4 to 5 months of taking CBD.
CBD can be a safe alternative to prescription seizure medications that can have damaging effects on the organs after prolonged use.
