My Pet Isn't Hurt or Sick, Should I Be Giving Them CBD?
Posted by Aaron Argueta on
We hear it all the time in the community when talking to pet parents...
"My pet isn't hurt or sick, should I be giving them CBD?"
Many pet owners look to CBD as a REACTIVE solution to their pet's ailments, after the fact, when the unattended to inflammation and dis-ease has already developed into a condition that has now driven you to visit the vet on one or more occasion.
Then your veterinarian offers you either a pharmaceutical option, or perhaps an expensive procedure. (Did you mention your pet has health insurance?🤑)
This goes back to a point I bring up often: Do you only eat oranges and consume vitamin C when you're sick?
Probably not, because our body requires it daily to function properly, and without essential vitamins and minerals we would not be able to survive.
Well the endocannabinoid system, which is instrumental in maintaining our body’s regulatory systems, supports important mammalian functions, such as: appetite, digestion, immune function, inflammation, pain, mood, sleep, reproduction/fertility, motor control, temperature regulation, and memory.
The overall effect is that the body achieves homeostasis, and all of it’s systems are balanced.
Our body creates and uses "endo"cannabinoids such as Andanamine, and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), which we produce endogenously and 100% naturally to support the important functions previously stated.
Andanamine is also notably responsible for the "runners high" feeling we get when we're at the end of a race, and is released during "fight or flight" experiences, when stress hormones are released.
Now CBD is a "phyto"cannabinoid from the cannabis hemp plant (phyto=plant).
As we age, our pet's may become deficient in their body's natural ability to produce endocannabinoids such as andanamine.
This puts many of our pet's regulatory systems as risk, making it more difficult for our pet's to maintain homeostasis.
When our body's regulatory systems are out of homeostasis, the body's inflammatory response can become activated.
Long periods of unaddressed and unattended to inflammation can build up and eventually turn into a negative health condition over time.
CBD has been shown to help promote homeostasis in mammals.
So by giving our pet's CBD daily, we are helping their body's regulatory systems operate at a higher level of efficiency, especially if they are aging or genetically prone to endocannabinoid deficiencies.
It is also unfortunate that many of the pet foods and treats on the market are made with inflammation inducing by-products, which can create difficulties in our pet's natural ability to maintain homeostasis, especially over extended periods of time.
As you can see, there are many threats to our pet's ability to maintain homeostasis, especially over time.
This is why it is so important to stay on top of your pet's PROACTIVE health and wellness by giving them Bailey's full spectrum hemp CBD oil at each meal in conjunction with a healthy diet and proper training.
