What is Cannabidiol (CBD) and How Does it Help Your Pet?

Cbd header
Note to my readers: This is from a recently received press release.  Products containing Cannabidiol for pets really intrigues me. I wanted to share it with my pet-loving peeps!

 
Cannabidiol (abbreviated as: CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.
  
The popularity of cannabidiol (CBD) infused products for pets has grown considerably over the last few years. Education and first hand experience has been key in attracting more and more pet parents seeking a natural approach to their animal companion's anxiety, joint inflammation, pain, seizures, and digestive issues.

All animals - from the tiniest rodent to the largest horse, cow and panther - have an endocannabinoid system that assists in maintaining the physiological, neurological and immunological systems of the body. If there is a deficiency of endocannabinoid production, the system's multiple receptors will utilize the addition of phytocannabinoids to help create calm and balance and provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring.

Small Pets
 
Smaller animals can suffer from stress just like dogs and cats, and the anxiety can be brought on for numerous reasons. The guinea pig for instance, doesn't normally enjoy the solo life. These furry rodents enjoy being around other guinea pigs and they also need daily attention from their human caretakers as well. When guinea pigs live by themselves, they're often gloomy, confused and spiritless. This is why many people have two guinea pigs; however transitional periods are sometimes inevitable.  If you own a pair of guinea pigs and one dies, it could cause some serious stress on your remaining fur-friend.

Hamsters do not like change, and they tend to get anxious pretty easily. Like most animals, they thrive in a safe and comfortable environment. Hamsters indicate stress by biting, squeaking and overeating. Rabbits are naturally shy and nervous little creatures. It normally takes some time to slowly gain their trust. Similar to a hamster, they do best in a calm and quiet environment. Rabbits that live in a busy atmosphere for instance may show anxious tendencies due to all of the ongoing activity.
 
One such company that offer products containing cannabidiol is Treatibles

Treatibles products all contain phytocannabinoid rich oil extracted from whole plant medicinal grade hemp grown in the USA. In addition to cannabidiol (CBD), one of the most therapeutic compounds, several other phytocannabinoids as well as terpenes are included creating what is known as the entourage effect, providing a full spectrum of benefits for pets. Treatibles products are legal to sell in and ship to all 50 states.

Phytocannabinoids are very effective in bringing calm and balance to pets suffering from a myriad of conditions including anxiety, separation anxiety, mobility issues, inflammation, general pain, joint pain, loss of appetite, effects from cancer and cancer treatments, seizures, end of life comfort, and more.

Not all hemp-derived products for pets are created equal; however, Treatibles goes above and beyond to ensure the efficacy and safety of all of their products. Treatibles third party lab test at every stage, from the raw materials to the finished product.
Although most products are skewed toward dogs; cats, small pets like rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters, as well as large animals including livestock, wild, and farm animals can benefit from phytocannabinoids, too.

NOTE: I myself have not tried the CBD products on my pets as I live in Canada and they can't be shipped outside of the USA. But I would certainly encourage pet parents to learn more about what CBD can do for their furry family members.

This is interesting as I am about to start researching CBD Oil for dogs. I live in the UK and have been taking CBD oil for the past 3 weeks, I have noticed an amazing difference to my health (I have ME/CFS), one of my worse symptoms is anxiety. We have a very nervous, anxious rescue dog and I have been wondering whether it would help her. I will start to look into it more. Thanks for the article.
