CBD Arthritis and Dogs

With all of the buzz about CBD, it feels as though it has been mainstream for decades. While research has been around for quite some time, CBD is considered the ‘new kid’ on the block. In the simplest of terms, CBD works with your dog’s body, akin to a lock and key, targeting receptors located in your pup’s body and provide improved wellness for your dog. CBD is the natural healer your dog needs.

Where are CBD receptors located in a dog’s body? Great question! These are located in the brain, central nervous system, organs, and immune system, all together known as the endocannabinoid system, where CBD works to help keep your dog’s body regulated and in a healthy state. CBD encourages your dog’s body to naturally increase efforts to heal cells (homeostasis).

What conditions can CBD help improve for dogs? Many. It’s quite amazing the myriad of benefits that 100% full-spectrum, organic CBD can offer, without any of the negative psychoactive effects. These are just a few conditions that can benefit from this natural healer:

  • Arthritis and Inflammation: Dogs who suffer from joint inflammation, and the aches and pains associated with degenerative diseases can find relief with CBD. It also helps combat chronic inflammation, and encourages expedient healing.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Becoming more prevalent in dogs, CBD can reduce the cramping, diarrhea and constipation associated with IBS.

  • Epilepsy and Seizures: With proper management, CBD can help manage these conditions, and reduce the frequency of flare-ups.

  • Appetite: Dogs with digestive issues often lose interest in eating. This is where CBD can help, addressing and soothing your dog’s digestive tract.

  • Anxiety: Often caused by separation, anxiety can be debilitating for your pup. Head this off with a daily dose of CBD. For extreme anxiety, associated with travel or fireworks, CBD works well when given 30 minutes prior to a known triggering event.

  • Cancer: CBD is excellent for managing the side-effects associated with the disease, and it also contains anti-tumor properties to help keep cancer at bay (source).

Also, CBD works to keep any inflammation that your dog may have under control. Inflammation is the leading cause of disease, and it’s important to keep it at bay. A healthy and nutritious diet goes a long way in helping to minimize inflammation in your dog’s body. When you add CBD to your dog’s daily routine, similar to a daily supplement, the proactive benefits help to prolong your pup’s healthy status.

Honestly, it’s a good idea to give Fido a CBD treat on a daily basis. While dogs have adapted well to domestication, they still have the natural inclination to hide their pain. In the wild this type of survival instinct is great… Inside of our homes, where they live with us, this trait can mask a lot of little problems that can eventually become big health concerns. Like the initial aches and pains of osteoarthritis.

According to the Veterinary Information Network, approximately 60% of veterinarians have reported that their clients are asking about the benefits of CBD. Many were about aging pups and the potential benefits of CBD. That’s great, and we at TropiCBD could not be happier to hear that pet parents are hungry for information.
