CBD For Pets
Why Consider CBD For Your Pets
Researchers are turning their attention to hemp and they're finding amazing results, and not just for humans. CBD is found to have life-changing results your dogs & cats can benefit from as well.
Colorado State University conducted a study to assess the use of cannabidiol, or CBD, for dogs with epilepsy and osteoarthritis planned for later this year. Overall, they found the results to be very promising.
Pets Have an Endocannabinoid System Too
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) helps fine-tune most of our vital physiological functions. It promotes homeostasis affecting everything from sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood, and even reproduction. So in basic terms, the ECS helps modulate the regulation of homeostasis across all major body systems ensuring that all systems work in concert with one another.
The endocannabinoid system's purpose is to respond to endogenous cannabinoids produced within the human body. Scientists have learned that the system will also recognize and respond to cannabinoids from external sources, like the phytocannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD).
According to the National Institute of Health, manipulating the endocannabinoid system by introducing external cannabinoids like CBD could be useful in treating a variety of medical ailments, including: Pain, Epilepsy, Inflammation, Psoriasis, Depression, Anxiety, Nausea, Arthritis, Irritable Bowel Disease, Allergies, etc.
Just like humans, cats and dogs have an endocannabioid systems. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system in your pet, CBD promotes homeostasis, reduces pain sensation and decreases inflammation. This is useful in treating a variety of medical ailments, including: Pain, Epilepsy, Inflammation, Psoriasis, Depression, Anxiety, Nausea, Arthritis, Allergies, etc.
CBD vs. THC
At Natural Leaf CBD we promote ZERO THC products for your pets. Most other brands contain up to .3% THC in their CBD products. We believe that no THC should be given to your pets, even trace amounts. We offer all natural, high-quality, non-GMO, 3rd party tested, USA organically grown hemp oil that contains 0% THC.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the Cannabis sativa plant. Both of these substances interact with the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body and brain, but they differ dramatically in their effects. CBD is non-psychoactive which means that it will not get the user high.
Top 5 CBD Benefits For Pets
1. Reducing Anxiety and Stress
CBD’s effect on anxiety may be due to its impact on a poorly functioning endocannabinoid system. By supplementing with CBD, users may be helping their endocannabinoid system work better because CBD helps increase levels of endocannabinoids in the body. Good terpenes for treating anxiety are limonene and linalool. Our full spectrum zero THC CBD can have a calming effect and help with separation anxiety and nausea caused by anxiety.
2. Pain Relief
CBD hemp oil appears to be a viable option for pain management. While we have tons of strong anecdotal evidence to support its effectiveness, research is promising but not conclusive.
The best way to know for sure if CBD can help relieve your pet’s pain is to try it out for yourself.
3. Reduce Inflammation and Arthritis Pain
Our dogs suffer from arthritis just like many of us, but CBD can help. 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 gives your dog relief. Not only that, but it soothes the chronic inflammation and helps your pet heal properly.
4. Treat Seizures and Epilepsy
Pets suffer from Epilepsy, a common brain disorder in dogs, characterized by recurrent seizures. Studies on humans show that CBD is a natural anticonvulsant. In fact, the American Epilepsy Society officially confirmed that CBD helps reduce epileptic seizures. The society published a study testing the efficacy and safety of CBD on children and young adults with hard-to-treat forms of epilepsy. The results from the study were clear: CBD helped reduce both the frequency and severity of seizures, sometimes by as much as 45%.
5. Helps With Many Diseases
Diseases in dogs result in the same types of symptoms that we humans experience – chronic pain, nausea, loss of appetite, change in behavior, anxiety, etc. CBD is an all-around stimulant that can help your dog relax and alleviate pain in troubling times. Some diseases that CBD helps with includes:
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Autoimmune Disease
- Neurodegenerative Disease
- Cardiovascular Disease
