Does your dog or cat become nervous with thunderstorms or fireworks? Maybe they have arthritis or other medical pains that they are dealing with on a daily basis? This is where CBD can help alleviate these pains and stressors from your furry pets.
How does CBD work for your pet?
CBD interacts with your pet’s body via the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. The ECS is a biological system found in all mammals and is involved in managing the biological processes including memory, immune response, sleep and more. The ECS system in dogs and cats functions similarly to the human ECS.
Just like in humans, CBD will not make your furry friend high. In fact, CBD pet supplements, like our PurPet line, are sourced from hemp. This variety of cannabis contains very low concentrations of THC. This means your mister sweet face won’t go munching on his snack stash, and will instead be more mellowed out on the couch.
What Can CBD help with for my furry friend?
- May Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Firework and thunderstorms are not the only anxiety stressors that your pet may be going through. Your dog or cat may have separation anxiety or may stress on the way to that camping trip. CBD for pets has shown to induce calmness and relaxation, which makes it a great option during these times of uneasiness.
- May Minimize Severity of Seizures and Epilepsy
Your pet may already be on medication to manage their seizures and epilepsy, but those medications can potentially cause harm to their other organs if they don’t work properly. CBD is an alternative that can help with these medical problems without putting your dog or cat at risk of adverse effects. CBD is not a cure or treatment for the disease, but it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsant properties may help with the occurrence to which seizures and epilepsy happen.
- May Help With Appetite and Nausea
Do you have a picky dog or cat living with you? Maybe you’re just tired of waking up to hairballs every morning? There are several factors when it comes to loss of appetite or nausea. Since CBD reacts to your pet’s ECS, which is responsible for regulating appetite, it may help them regain their appetite. On top of that, CBD can also help with nausea and vomiting disorders.
Just like humans, CBD can help in so many different ways. CBD can help your pets with these and many other areas of their health.
Where do I start?
If you decide that CBD is the route you want to go for your furry friend, make sure to read the label. Full-spectrum CBD is considered the best as it contains all naturally occurring cannabinoids from cannabis. You’ll also want an oil that contains a proprietary blend of hemp derived phytocannabinoids as this variation will be non-psychoactive. In other words, no pets getting any type of high.
