CBD for dogs or cats for that matter, can I safely give my pet CBD? The simple answer here is YES. It’s perfectly safe to provide your much loved fluffy friend with CBD. Providing they have no serious allergy issues with any ingredients listed on the bottle. I am currently using CBD on my own dogs who have anxiety and its perfectly safe. Many other users who contact me, tell wonderful stories of how their pets may have benefited from a range of aliments such as epilepsy, seizures and inflammation.
Firstly, dogs and cats have the endo-cannabinoid system within their genetic make up. In fact, all animals do pretty cool eh? This nifty little system was first discovered in the 1900s’ by L.A. Matsuda. Dr. Matsuda. When looking at the effects of THC on the system. Scientists have discovered a whole arrangement of remarkably complex networks of cannabinoid receptors. In the cells of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. One has to only ask themselves this question, why would the body produce receptors if there were no naturally occurring cannabinoids to bind with them?
Surely, if evolution of the species tells us anything it is that, nothing in nature happens by chance you were blessed with eyes to see, with ears to hear and with an endo-cannabinoid system to establish and maintain animal and human health. In fact, the ECS (endo-cannabinoid system) has been called “the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human and animal health”. These are just some of the awesome reasons to give CBD to your dog or pet.
What is the purpose of the endo-cannabinoid system?
ECS, helps fine-tune most of the vital physiological functions in both animals and humans. It effects everything from sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood, and even reproduction. The ECS helps the regulation of homeostasis across all major body systems ensuring that all systems work in concert with one another. Sort of like the liquid conductor of the body’s orchestra, ensuring all organs, cells and system are playing in perfect harmony with each other. I ask you, who wouldn’t be interested in getting some of that?
Endo-cannabinoid role in diseases in both humans and animals.
As discussed above the ECS contained within the body helps bring a balance to the system. Its worth mentioning noticeable changes have been observed in many neuro-degenerative disorders and in rheumatoid arthritis sufferer’s and even cancer patients have shown changes in endo-cannabinoid levels and greater receptor expression. One would think that, the ECS would be an effective target for bringing balance to the body and promoting good health and well being. Therefor, administering CBD to your dog may bring them into balance.
Endo-Cannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome may be the primary cause of some diseases. CBD effects in humans and dogs.
When your pet is perfectly balanced and the ECS is functioning perfectly this is called, homeostasis. However, what happen’s when the ECS is not working as it should? Scientists conclude many conditions such as migraines, anxiety, fibromyalgia, IBS, seizures and conditions related to pain and hypersensitivity may be related to the ECS not functioning properly. We now know that if you supplement with naturally occurring cannabinoids from plants. We may be able to correct this deficiency, relieve symptoms and restore balance in animals and humans.
In summary, giving your dog or pet CBD may restore the balance within their little bodies. Setting them up for a happy, healthy life.
Did you know? Diet and exercise can also help boost the ECS system in both animals and humans. So, get your walking shoes on and take your beloved pet for a walk! Not only is it good for you its good for them. Its nice to step out of your home and return to nature.
