by Gana Daniel

A lot has been said about the usefulness of CBD products to the human body, an intensive level of research has been conducted to show how CBD can interact with the CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors to elicit their medical properties. In case you are hearing about CBD for the very first time, consider this article as an introduction to the various qualities of CBD products to pet health.
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the numerous plant chemicals (cannabinoids) which have been known to elicit a wide range of medical properties such as anticancer, antidepressant, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities. It is the second most abundant cannabinoid after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Not just in humans, the use of CBD oil for dogs, cats, and horses has been widely documented by several researchers.

HOW DOES CBD ACT IN WHILE IN THE BODY?
Once introduced to the body (orally or topically) CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) receptors (CB1 and CB2 receptors) which plays critical roles in the regulation of hormonal balance, pain and stress control. They also limit the growth and proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses which trigger one disease or the other. The ECS receptors are scattered all over the central nervous system and can play vital roles in specific body function such as;
- Prevention of skin diseases: when CBD oil is applied topically or ingested orally, it can promote the healing of wounds,
cuts, stings, bites and hot spots. It can also control the occurrence of dry skin and hair in pets, expression of allergies
and other skin conditions.
- Reduction in pain and arthritis in older pets: As your favorite pets grow older, there is a significant likelihood of them
experiencing a high level of joint pain, arthritis, lack of energy and reduced activity. The use of CBD can boost the production
of feel-good hormones and improving nerve health and rate of inflammation which can lead to pains in the joint.
- Healthy coat production: CBD has been used to enhance the production of glossy and sleek coats for your pets and assist
them in getting rid of the peculiar pet odor. This leaves your pets attractive and good looking.
- It boosts the immune system: CBD can serve as an antimicrobial agent and boosts the body’s immunity against fungal
and yeast infections including Candida.
- Reduces the rate of anxiety and increases pet comfort: CBD oil can come in handy in boosting the level of comfort
enjoyed by your pets by taking care of possible inflammations, hormonal imbalance or depletion in the concentration
of endocannabinoids. The use of CBD oil reduces the activity of free radicals and triggers sleep and rest to improve
the pet’s comfort.
