CBD Dog Treats

Exciting News for Pet Owners

In recent years, scientists have reported the benefits of cannabinoids, the chemical compounds in hemp, including pain relief, reduced inflammation and lowered anxiety. The benefits of treating people with CBD (or cannabidiol) has been widely written about. However, the idea of treating dogs with CBD is becoming more popular. Studies continue to show the benefits of CBD for animals and there are many positive, first-hand-experiences reported by pet owners.

For years now, people have purchased fish oil or glucosamine for their dogs to relieve symptoms of joint stiffness and skin irritation. These have been designated as dietary supplements by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are not regulated as drugs. CBD is similar in that it’s also designated as a dietary supplement by the FDA, which means that it doesn’t have to be prescribed by a doctor or veterinarian.

CBD works in pets much like it does in people. Pets have natural cannabinoids called anandamide. Cannabinoids attach to receptors in the brain, or other parts of the pet’s body, for longer than anandamide can. This leads to four or more hours of relief from one dose.

CBD is a safer, non-toxic and more affordable option than many other treatments. CBD dog treats contain zero amounts of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid, so pets will not experience a “high.”

Some of the things that CBD may be able to help with include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Inflammation, including things like intervertebral disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive issues, including nausea
  • Anxiety, including separation anxiety
  • Mental disorders such as dementia
  • Seizures

CBD may help dogs with medical conditions live healthier and more comfortably lives. Anyone interested can call or visit Mr. Hemp CBD for more information.
