CBD for Pets
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the predominant molecule that is produced by our plants grown on our farm in Longmont, CO.
As the hemp begins to flower they start to produce what is known as the precursor to CBD, called CBDa (cannabidiolic acid). Through an extraction process called supercritical CO2, we are able to derive a whole plant concentrate of CBDa from hemp and then we convert the CBDa through a process called decarboxylation. This process involves heating the CBDa concentrate at low temperatures to convert to CBD.
CBD is a non-intoxicating, non-addictive antioxidant for the body that both binds and signals to many different receptors and systems (ECS) within the body.
Benefits of CBD for Pets
CBD, or cannabidiol, has been a hot topic in the world of pet care in recent years. Many pet owners have turned to CBD products to help their furry friends with a range of issues, from stress to discomfort. If you’re considering giving CBD to your pet, it’s important to understand the benefits it can offer.
Just like humans, pets can suffer from stress. Loud noises, unfamiliar people or animals, and changes in routine can all trigger stress in pets. Fortunately, CBD has been shown to help ease stress and promote calm in pets. Studies have shown that CBD can help regulate the endocannabinoid system, which plays a key role in regulating mood and stress responses. Additionally, CBD can help increase levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that promotes feelings of well-being and happiness
Pets can experience a range of discomfort, from joint issues to injuries and surgeries. CBD has been shown to have powerful joint-relieving properties, making it a natural alternative to traditional medicines. CBD works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a key role in regulating pain perception. Additionally, CBD has promotes a healthy inflammatory response, which can help reduce overall discomfort.
Healthy Inflammatory Response
Inflammation is a common underlying factor in many pet health issues, from joint aches to skin conditions and allergies. CBD has been shown to have potent inflammatory response support, making it a valuable tool for managing these conditions.
Supporting the immune system
CBD has been shown to have immunomodulatory effects, which means it can help regulate the immune system. This can be especially beneficial for pets with weakened immune systems, such as those undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from autoimmune diseases. CBD can help support the immune system and improve overall health and wellness.
CBD has been shown to promote a healthy inflammatory response, which can help to reduce skin irritation and promote healthy skin. This makes it a useful treatment for pets who suffer from skin conditions such as allergies or dermatitis.
CBD has been shown to have digestive health benefits, including promoting a healthy inflammatory response in the gut and promoting healthy gut bacteria. This can be particularly useful for pets who suffer from digestive issues such as inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
CBD for pets is safe and effective
One of the main reasons why pet owners are turning to CBD for their furry friends is that it is safe and effective. CBD is a natural compound that is derived from the cannabis plant, and it is non-psychoactive, meaning that it does not produce a “high” in pets or humans. CBD is also non-toxic, and there have been no reported cases of CBD overdose in pets or humans.
When it comes to giving your pet CBD, it is important to choose a high-quality product that is specifically formulated for pets.
