Testimonials

Just as people who use CBD to help with pain, anxiety, epilepsy and other issues. CBD has shown to work amazingly well with dogs. That may be because dogs have more cannabinoid receptors in their bodies than people do, and they are distributed throughout the canine anatomy.

We’ve received literally hundreds of success stories from our customers who’ve discovered the amazing benefits CBD provides for their dogs:

Pain Relief

Anti-Inflammatory: Older dogs with sore joints, Younger dogs with early arthritis or other chronic pain, Incidental pain from injury or surgery

Anti-Anxiety: Caused by chronic pain, Separation anxiety, Incidental Anxiety (Fireworks, flying, etc.), Chronic baseline anxiety

Anti-Seizure: Virtually eliminates seizures in epileptic dogs

Skin Conditions or Hot Spots

Appetite Stimulant

Muscle Spasms

Cognitive Functioning

Digestive Issues

Dental Health

How does it work?

When CBD enters a mammal’s Endocannabinoid System, specific receptors found throughout the dog’s body are activated. These are the ONLY receptors in the body that allow for a 2-way communication between body systems. Basically, CBD makes it easier for the body to calm down and relieve tension and anxiety, because receptors in the Endocannabinoid System can now “speak” to each other.



How does it help with arthritic pain?

CBD affects the immune system, which naturally makes it helpful for an autoimmune condition like rheumatoid arthritis—and the science doesn’t lie. A study published in the journal Rheumatology found that CBD receptors are found in unusually high levels in the joint tissue of arthritic patients. The use of Cannabidiol is shown to fight inflammation in the joints by activating the pathways of CBD receptors.



How does it help with anxiety?

CBD has been medically proven to help significantly reduce anxiety. Several studies in animals have clearly demonstrated that activation of cannabinoid receptors within the brain lowers heart rate and blood pressure responses to stress and

reduces panic and anxiety behavior. Put simply, natural hemp-derived CBD administration appears to reduce the well-known “fight or flight” response to physical and mental stress. Other studies using similar models in animals have shown that CBD administration decreases fear-avoidant and conditioned responses to pain or punishment.
