Man’s Best Friend Needs CBD Too!

By now, we all know about the health benefits of CBD for people, but the movement for natural health shouldn’t stop there! Your pet can benefit a great deal from the plant as well. In this post, let’s look at three specific conditions affecting lil’ puppers like the one pictured above that CBD can alleviate. 

Arthritis

This condition often shows up as your furry friend gets older. It’s just a sad fact of life.If you see that your dog doesn’t handle stairs well, or starts spending most hours lying in the same spot, it might be time to look into whether or not arthritis is the problem. Arthritis is a disease that causes the joints to break down, and it’s all too common.

If it is arthritis, CBD can help a ton! Arthritis causes swelling and inflammation in cells as they die. CBD is a well known as an anti-inflammatory agent. Thousands of pet owners have seen results using CBD to treat the condition. While it can’t cure arthritis, it can lead to an easier and more mobile life for your pet. Some people have reported their dog being able to walk again after only a day or two of beginning a CBD regimen. 

Cancer

I know, I know, the dreaded C word. It can strike without warning and be absolutely devastating to those affected and their loved ones. It can be more difficult to diagnose in animals than people, and as a result you can have less time to prepare or catch the disease before it gets too late. Luckily CBD can help make the problem better.

          Repeated studies have shown that CBD can help slow or even stop tumor growth. It can stimulate white blood cells to help fight cancerous cells. Appetite can be affected while undergoing treatment for cancer, and CBD can also be used to help bring the appetite back to normal. The only real side-effect is potential drowsiness, and it’s not even really an issue. Benadryl would do the same thing. 

Anxiety

We all feel anxiety at times, it’s the body’s natural reaction to a situation of increased stress. Some of us handle it better than others, and some need a little help. Animals are no different. Some critters have noise phobias. Others have issues with separation anxiety. Foreign animals or people can set them off and make them respond in a variety of undesirable ways. Is there a way to level out your animal’s behavior?

Oh yah, and it’s that dang CBD again! CBD works trough receptors in the body called endocannabinoids to allow for faster and smoother communication between different parts of the brain and bodily systems. If a stranger comes to the door during a loud thunderstorm, some dogs just won’t be able to handle the extra strain on their systems. A healthy does of CBD will slow down the system a bit and ensure that the situation is easier to process and understand. 

If you’re looking for a good place to get started, Pure Hemp has a couple of products you can try out. These Pet Treats can be given to any dog large or small. The company also has a Pet Food Spray, and it can be given orally or sprayed right onto the food you give your pet!
