16 Ways CBD Can Help Your Cat and Dog

Did you know that CBD can naturally help support your pet’s best health without harmful side effects?

The legal use of cannabis (for both recreational and medical use) is exploding across the United States in states like Colorado, Washington, Nevada, California, Oregon, Vermont, Maine and more. What once was a taboo subject is now also becoming a mainstream, natural therapeutic alternative for both people and their beloved pets.

Many use marijuana (derived from the dried flowers, buds and leaves of the Cannabis Sativa plant/herb) for its THC psychoactive compound which creates euphoric effects on the brain. But even more people are becoming educated on the medicinal uses and benefits of the toxic-free CBD (or cannabidiol, one of the active, medicinal compounds called cannabinoids). These health benefits also extend to our companion animals.

Keep reading to learn:
• Some quick facts about CBD; and
• How CBD can specifically help your canine and feline with both behavioral and physical challenges.

Quick Facts about CBD for Your Pet

• CBD is NOT marijuana.
• CBD is created from a variety of the Cannabis plant (called hemp) that contains less than .3% THC. Products made with less than .3% THC are legal in all 50 states.
• CBD will not make your pet “high.” (Marijuana will make your pet high; so keep it out of reach of all pets and children.)
• CBD is all-natural without harmful side effects.

How CBD Works

CBD works with the ECS (EndoCannabinoid System) that’s made up of a network of receptors that regulate hundreds of critical processes in every mammal. Processes that include: inflammation and pain, temperature, mood, sleep, stress and anxiety, disease and much more. When CBD binds to the ECS receptors, balance and wellness are restored to the body.
