CBD oil interacts with the cannabidiol (CBD) CB1 and CB2 receptors in your dog’s body, and acts as a natural neuro-protective agent with multiple health benefits. The natural cannabinoids in CBD oil has a two way effect in balancing the endocannabonoid receptors with the immune system, either increasing or decreasing its response, as required – ensuring the perfect balance is achieved.
How It Relieves Chronic Pain.
Unfortunately dogs do not escape arthritis. Arthritis is one of the most common diseases amongst middle-aged to older dogs and is damage to the cartilage between the bones and resulting in inflammation around the joint area, leading to stiffness and chronic pain.1 Thankfully, CBD can help with that. As CBD is a pain reliever, it targets these aching joints and gives your dog relief.2 Not only that, but it soothes the chronic inflammation that prevents your pet from healing properly.
Unlike prescription drugs, CBD oil doesn’t have any dangerous side effects, in fact it has been shown to be an extremely safe plant. It doesn’t damage the liver, kidney, or the digestive tract. Your dog does not get “high” or sedated from CBD. Using CBD oil for your dogs’ arthritis pain is a holistic approach, that will help your dog cope with the symptoms of this degenerative disease.
Hemp Oil vs. Marijuana: Let’s discuss the difference.
When considering CBD for your dog, you should first understand the difference between marijuana and hemp. Firstly, they both come from the same cannabis sativa plant family, however, they have different properties and results.
Marijuana – has a high source of a substance called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC properties result in a psycho-active effect in humans, or the ‘high’ feeling.
Hemp – contains less than 3% of tetrahydrocannabinol but does contain a substance called cannabidiol (CBD). Cells contain Cannabidiol activated receptor sites in the body, known as the endocannabinoid system.
CBD hemp oil is not associated with the “high” of marijuana, otherwise known as the THC effect.
If you want to keep the THC out of your pet’s CBD experience, Hempture’s CBD is what you are looking for. It is 100% organic, NON-GMO and Vegan. No preservatives, SLS, gelatin, wheat, gluten, sugar, or dairy are used – in other words, it is top notch!
