4 Ways Your Pet Can Benefit From CBD
Written by: Emily Wallace from Pet Releaf

Whether you’re shopping at your local pet store or scrolling through your Instagram feed, there’s a chance that you’ve seen CBD for pets. As the CBD world continues to grow, you may wonder how exactly CBD could benefit your pet’s health. The CBD industry can often be confusing, but don’t worry, Pet Releaf is here to break down the fundamentals of CBD for you! Every mammal’s body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). When your pet consumes CBD, their ECS is activated. When activated, it creates a two-way communication system between the brain and various system in the body. This is why you may hear about CBD benefiting so many different areas of health.

What is CBD?

CBD is short for the word, “cannabidiol”, which is just one of the hundred natural compounds found in the hemp plant, also known as “cannabinoids.” When you go with a full spectrum hemp extract, you’re opting for a product that will include all of the beneficial cannabinoids in the plant including CBD! With the Endocannabinoid System activating a two-way communication system, it most commonly communicates with the nervous system, immune system, digestive system, cardiovascular system, and more.

What are some of the most common conditions pets use CBD for?

Overall Wellness

Pets of all ages can benefit from CBD! Whether you just adopted a new puppy or a senior pup, dogs at any stage of the lifecycle can benefit from a daily, all-natural supplement like CBD. CBD can help support a healthy immune system response, which is important for dogs at any stage of life. 

Situational Stress

Do your pets have occasional stress when you leave for work or during loud noises like fireworks or thunderstorms? CBD can help promote relaxation during stressful situations. We recommend administering CBD about an hour before a stressful event, so it has enough time to kick in.

Digestive Health

It’s never fun to see your pet struggling with an upset tummy. Luckily, CBD can help promote a healthy digestive tract as well. When your pet experiences occasional digestive discomfort, try administering CBD to help your dog feel more comfortable.

Hip & Joint Discomfort

If you and your dog are big hikers, your pet may experience some occasional hip or joint discomfort after a long hike or walk. Try administering CBD when they get home or use it as a preventive before an adventurous day to help them feel at ease.
