Help Your Furry Friend Beat Anxiety - Benefits Of CBD For Anxiety
- by Chris Irwin
Fireworks Celebrations are here - let us help your pets
Guy Fawkes and Diwali are fast approaching and whilst these colourful explosions of light bring joy to humans it is quite the opposite for our furry friends.
Dogs and cats can hear better than humans, especially in the upper ranges. Cats can hear almost an octave higher than dogs, and both can hear on the ultrasound level. The shape of their ears allows dogs and cats to “funnel” sounds into their ears.
The anxiety and terror caused by fireworks are real for our pets. CBD oil from hemp is an all-natural solution to several issues from arthritis to stopping seizures and it plays a huge role in easing anxiety caused by fireworks for our pets.
What makes fireworks terrifying?
When you hear a loud noise like a gunshot or tyre burst think of the adrenaline that pumps through your veins on hearing the sound? How your temperature rises and it feels like your heart might pump out of your chest. Now multiply that by 10 to understand how noise sensitives heighten our pet's anxiety. Symptoms of anxiety include seeking comfort, trembling, hiding, salvation, and urination. There are no long-term damages associated with anxiety but it is incredibly distressing for both dogs and cats.
What is Cannabidiol or CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant. CBD once extracted is used as oil with varying healing and wellbeing benefits for both humans and animals.
All mammals have endocannabinoid systems with interconnected cannabinoid receptors. The ECS is responsible for setting the baseline activity levels of both our immune and nervous systems, which then work to maintain our health.
CBD promotes the normal health and function of the endocannabinoid system, by bonding with the receptors to allow for better communication. It advises what immune response is required to bring the body back into balance naturally. It helps regulate the system and maintain balance influencing internal processes related to pain, mood, sleep, and immune function. Therefore CBD may alleviate symptoms of conditions that are caused by dysfunction of this system.
I don’t want to get my pet high?
CBD does not make your pet high. This isolated cannabinoid does not have the same psychoactive properties as THC. CBD oil derived from Hemp, the safer non-psychoactive type of cannabis, is virtually THC-free.
Loud noises and fireworks create a fear response in our animals. CBD oil is an effective natural method of relieving anxiety caused by fear. It is a natural way to balance our pet's system when multiple hormones are released due to a fight or flight response.
