A pet just makes life better. We love our pets like we love our own children and we certainly don’t want to see them in pain or suffering from anxiety.
Unfortunately for our furry friends, they can suffer from many of the same illnesses and ailments that affect people. Pets feel pain and can experience extreme emotions just as we do. So, as responsible pet owners, what can we do to alleviate health problems in our lovable pets?
One all-natural wellness ingredient that has been the subject of much discussion, research and an entire new bill from Congress (Farm Bill, 2018 and the Hemp Production Plan) is CBD, extracted from the hemp plant.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.”
Once CBD is isolated from the rest of the plant, it can be incorporated into many other products, from sublingual oils, to gummy bears and even topical oils and lotions.
CBD can treat many of the same health conditions in pets as it does in people. It can be extraordinarily successful in treating anxiety and mood swings in pets, which makes it beneficial for conditions such as separation fears, paranoias, or depression.
It can be used to relieve pain associated with cancer, arthritis and joint pain. CBD reduces inflammation and can be very helpful with pain management. It can also help with nausea and various gastrointestinal issues. Many of the epilepsy medications for dogs can have unwanted side effects but using CBD to treat seizures can be both safer and more effective.
Assessing CBD products for your pet should be done in the same way you would research medication for yourself. Here’s a quick list of the things we suggest you consider when purchasing CBD products for your pet:
- Produced by American Farmers
- Naturally grown (Note: weeds don’t like hemp plants, so there isn’t much of a need for noxious chemical-based weed-killers)
- Recent certificate of analysis that shows percentages of THC, various CBD molecules, other cannabis molecules, results for pesticide and heavy metal testing, and so on
- Easily accessible online
- Understandable labels, including strength and doses per bottle
- Not in an alcohol base
- Details on carrier oils
- Details on other ingredients or possible allergens
Pets have been using CBD based products for years, and their owners swear by it. The amount of CBD that’s right for your pet is based on size. Your pet has the same set of receptors that respond to cannabidiol that you do. Like all mammals, your cats and dogs have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is a special set of receptors that regulate a wide range of bodily functions, like sleep, appetite, energy levels, mood, stress response, immune response, and more processes that are central to good health and well-being.
Here at New Earth Garden, we offer you an easy-to-use measuring and dispensing tool. Simply place the plastic stopper in the opening of the bottle of drops. Use the measuring tool to withdraw a portion of CBD for your pet. Give your cat or dog the CBD by mouth. Watch your pet over the coming days to see how they respond to the CBD. Adjust the amount you give your pet based on how they respond.
CBD drops for pets will not get your dog or cat high. Our CBD for pets is made with a broad-spectrum extract type. That means the drops are made with all of the cannabinoids found in hemp, but less than 0.0mg of THC. This is referred to as non-detectable levels of THC, which is a scientifically accurate way of saying there is essentially none. If you buy other pet brands make sure that they are not using full spectrum hemp extract because it may contain up to 0.3% THC.
All of the New Earth Garden products we sell have been tested by our manufacture using an independent laboratory for quality. You can review the results of this lab test from our website or by using a QR code on every package.
At New Earth Garden, we are pet owners too! We sell CBD products that are made with the same love, care, dedication, and attention we bring to our award-winning CBD products for humans. Whether you have a cat, a small dog, medium dog, or big dog, you can return the love and support your pet has always shown you with this magnificent, plant-based wellness option.
