There’s No THC (No High) In Our Hemp-Based CBD Products For Pets
Let’s get one thing out of the way. CBD does not get your dog “high.” It is a compound from the plant cannabis, and CBD is the super health-providing compound of cannabis, but it is not THC, which is the psychoactive compound in cannabis and creates the “high.” None of our products have THC in them. Only CBD and hemp, pure and simple.
So, can CBD oil be another BFF best friend to your old dog who needs help with his/her conditions? Yes, it can. University studies – going on for over 7 years now – have demonstrated CBD oil is beneficially supportive and ameliorative for dogs suffering from old age medical conditions. CBD works through several systems in the dog’s body, including the very powerful endocannabinoid system which governs homeostasis in the body. Homeostasis contributes to the regulation of internal body systems including the digestive system, immune system, cardiac system, respiratory system and other vital systems.
CBD Positively Impacting the Endocannabinoid System, Fighting Inflammation
The reduction of chronic inflammation is the most critical function of the endocannabinoid system (which CBD positively impacts) and it is chronic inflammation that may lead to a host of chronic diseases in your aging dog. Studies also show that chronic stress impacts the production of endocannabinoids. CBD is known to help with stress, and to positively stimulate the endocannabinoid system. The research is continuing and we will report on it in this blog.
