CBD for Dogs - How it Can Help these 5 Common Conditions
You may have heard about CBD for dogs. It's becoming a popular topic....but if you are like many dog owners you might not be 100% convinced it will help your dog.
The truth is CBD has many health benefits for dogs.
CBD is a compound found in cannabis and the CDB found in most pet supplements is sourced from hemp a variety of the cannabis plant. Here's the most important point hemp is not the same as marijuana! Hemp has very low levels of THC (the element of marijuana that causes a psychoactive effect) but is higher in CBD the substance that provides thereapeutic effects.
Bottom line CBD products will not get your dog buzzed or stoned.
So while CBD won't give your dog the munchies and is why so many pet owners including me are using it to help our dogs. Here's how it works in treating many common conditions. A dog's body system is made up of many receptors. Your dog has 2 specific receptors;
- CB1 Receptors - located in the brain, nrevous system, glands and organs
- CB2 Receptors - located in the regulatory cells of the immune system
CBD works by targeting these receptors, restoring balance when things are out of whack. That's why it's so good for so many different ailments. In my next series of posts I am going to focus on these 5 common conditions that CBD so effectively treats;
Relieving Pain and Inflamation - the most common benefit for dogs.
Cancer - offsets the painful side effects of medication.
Anxiety and Stress - if your dog suffers from separation anxiety.
Obesity - it's not just a problem for us humans.
Skin Conditions - is your dog licking and scratching.
