CBD Helps Your Pet Heal Naturally

In the United States, we take our pets very seriously. Over 90 million dogs reside in American households, and an even higher number of cats live with their human pets. Our furry friends, to many of us, represent part of the family.

Similarly to how we deal with our children, we pay attention to our pet’s diets, their behavior, and their health in general. Not only do we want them to consume the healthiest food, but when they have physical health problems, anxiety or mood concerns we want the best care possible for them.

How the holistic movement has influenced pet care:

Many Americans now know, that feeding our kids sugary snacks, processed meats, and fast food leads to overweight, lethargic, and agitated children. When we finally read the ingredients on some of the popular commercial brands of pet food, we noticed a long list of useless and even harmful substances. The inadequacy in some long-running pet food brands opened the door to a plethora of nutritiously formulated pet foods.

The way we think of our pet’s food represents just the start of the holistic pet care movement. These days, herbalists, chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturist and more specialize in pet care. Almost any type of alternative health care professional available to ourselves and our children have their veterinarian counterparts.

Of course, we take our dogs and cats to the Vet for general check-ups and vaccinations, but when our pets become ill, we think twice about some of the pharmaceuticals prescribed. As with humans, some of the “wonder drugs” out there come with annoying to life-threatening side-effects such as liver and kidney damage.

Define CBD oil:

CBD derives from the hemp plant. Using the maceration or CO2 extraction method the oil or serum derives from the flower or other parts of the plant. The hemp plant comes from the same species of the cannabis sativa plant as does the marijuana plant. The most crucial difference stems from the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC in the plant. THC, though possessing many healing properties, also contains the psychoactive properties which cause the euphoric or stoned feeling. While a marijuana plant contains between .5 and 30% THC, a hemp plant must not contain more than .3% THC. Ultimately, this distinction means CBD will not make you or your pet high.

How CBD works with the ECS:

The endocannabinoid system or ECS consists of a series of small acidic molecules referred to as endocannabinoids running throughout the body and all its systems including the blood and muscles. All mammals possess the ECS. Homeostasis or balance serves as the main function of the ECS. The ECS works on the cellular level by stimulating C1 and C2 receptors to turn off pain and inflammation.

The ECS sometimes suffers compromise caused by poor lifestyle choices, autoimmune disorders, or aging. Not many of our pets smoke or drink, so in the case of a dog or cat, the compromise would most likely derive from a bad diet, autoimmune disorder, or merely advanced years.

The ECS, though existing since the beginning of time, was not discovered until the 1980s. Research conducted to determine why ingesting cannabis helped so many ailments revealed the ECS in all animals. The cannabis plant, both hemp, and marijuana possess a system that mimics the ECS which keeps the plant itself health.

CBD for pets and how it works:

Balance or homeostasis represents a common tenet of alternative healthcare methods. CBD oil and other forms of CBD represent a perfect example of this since it works with the body’s own ECS.

All mammals, especially dogs, and cats potentially will benefit from CBD oil for pets and other CBD treatments. Positive results also exist for different types of pets such as snakes and lizards.

Oral or topical use of CBD for your pet will penetrate the C2 receptors at the cellular level. This cellular binding may potentially help with pain, inflammation, and autoimmune disorders. Some of the specific conditions possibly helped include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Anxiety
