A Guide To Your Pet’s Health With CBD

With more and more research done on the health benefits CBD has for humans, the pet industry is out to follow. CBD pet products have shown good results with many studies done for various conditions, from skin health to inflammatory problems, pain relief to anxiety, CBD has proven to be more than just a plant. Today we will talk about CBD for pets, how it works, what it is and what it’s not.

What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant. The endocannabinoid system or ECS in short, regulates many physiological functions, such as appetite, mood and pain sensation. CBD is commonly used in human health products and is also available in pet products. There are CBD pet oils, treats, and even peanut butters available!

CBD and THC are often confused because their difference is not externally visible unless you know your stuff!  THC is the “high” compound i.e. psychoactive, whereas CBD is the non psychoactive compound i.e. it doesn’t make you high.

How Does CBD Work?

The body’s endocannabinoid system consists of receptors, enzymes and endocannabinoids that are naturally produced by the body. This can be influenced by the THC or CBD plant and provide some benefits for humans and animals alike. Many pet owners reported that after the use of CBD oil for cats or CBD broad spectrum oil for dogs, it seemed to calm them from anxiety, reduce pain and depression, and effectively manage seizures and inflammation. 

Do note that animal receptors for CBD are much higher than that of humans and they are also much smaller in general compared to the human body. This means your animal’s dosage must be much less than you would use for yourself. Be sure to use recommended CBD pet products. 

The Advantages of CBD For Animals

In recent years with the weed plant being legalized in more countries, the benefits of CBD, through testing, has become more and more part of the health industry. The advantages it provides for our furry friends, has yielded positive results in the following circumstances:

  • Pain & Inflammation;
  • Anxiety;
  • Allergies;
  • Seizures;
  • Epilepsy;
  • Cancer;
  • Arthritis;
  • Skin Conditions.

With the CBD pet products being safe, healthy, legal and non-psychoactive, the journey with your beloved furry friend during his difficult time can be much smoother, well for the pet. For the human friend there’s also some CBD products to browse through.  

There is still research being done into the effects of THC on pets, but they can however get the greenies. Should they by accident eat a THC edible, giving them CBD could counteract the negative effects of THC. It is always advised to take your pet to the nearest VET for examination as each pet will react differently.
