Understanding the use and benefits of CBD for your pets, our pets and all pets.
So, I am not sure but, if you’re like me, I had some strange ideas about CBD and how it works and what it does. I wanted to take some time and try to help everyone understand what the benefits of adding a CBD treat or oil to your pets diet.
First off, CBD does not get your pet high, drugged, or cause any psychoactive reactions.
The oil is made by extracting just the CBD from the Cannabis plant and adding an oil to it. Mainly coconut or hemp seed oil. Keeping it all natural and very healthy. All Mammals have an endocannabinoid system that play an important role in health, healing and repairing. Cannabis oil is typically administered orally and It also can be used in conjunction with traditional medications and treatments without an ill effect. There are also treats, salves and powders versions of CBD treatments, where the oil is most commonly used.
CBD oil can be used to treat seizures, nausea, stress, anxiety, arthritis, back pain, symptoms of cancer, and gastrointestinal issues, among other health conditions in dogs and cats. Some people have had amazing success with its use.
Amy Weaver D’Ambrosio put “Kramer”, on a CBD treatment. Kramer is an 18 year old Beagle/Jack Russel mix. Kramer was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and arthritis in all four legs two years ago and it has gotten worse this last year.” I’m strongly against Pain pills and long-term medications so, I wanted an all natural alternative. Not only did the CBD oil support his pain, he now runs out to the car to greet me when I come home, once again. I’ve also noticed that he has put on a few pounds and is less anxious.”

We have all of our cats on CBD. They are 19, 17 and 14 years old. The youngest, Cliff currently has the most issues, with skin infections related to flea allergies, moodiness and weight loss from anxiety. We hope Cliff gets through his rough patch soon, as he's currently on antibiotics. There seems to be improvement in his anxiety and in the 17 year old Macey, who has arthritis I her spine- seems to be more at ease with her mobility. Everything is a slow process with lots of observation, and starting with cleaning up their diet several years ago, we've slowly upped the quality of everything the cats consume and come in contact with! All in all, they're a very healthy and affectionate bunch of felines. Thanks for a great article and a great store!
