CBD for Pets
Humans & other mammals have endocannabinoid systems, specific cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily in the brain, central nervous system & peripheral organs, especially the immune cells.
The endocannabinoid system has been found in all vertebrates. CBD interacts in a similar way in pets as it does with humans, therefore it can be used to treat similar conditions. CBD has less than .3% THC & no psychoactive properties. Studies show that cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory effects and can help with a variety of ailments, such as allergies, loss of appetite, arthritis & joint pain, cancer, chronic pain, digestive issues, fatty tumors, glaucoma, homeostasis, IBS, inflammation, phobias, seizures, skin problems, muscle spasms, aggression, anxiety, and neurological disorders.
CBD products can help with dogs that have separation anxiety, social anxiety, fear of thunderstorms, or long-distance traveling. It is also great for post-surgery recovery since it aids with swelling, pain and stiffness. Ideally, with the advice of your veterinarian, CBD could replace many synthetic drugs which contain unwanted side effects.
