Relieves Excessive Anxiety

Like humans, pets suffer chemical imbalances in their neurotransmitters, so they become very hyperactive, anxious or conversely, they become depressed. In order to treat these effects, cannabidiol stimulates the production of serotonin, which is diminished by external agents such as pyrotechnics, lightning or abandonment or death of one of its owners.

As a positive consequence in treated dogs, increased appetite has been detected. This improves the physical and psychological condition of the beloved pet, as well as the brightness of its fur and its mood.

Minimal Side Effects

These studies have also detected a very low presence of adverse sensations in animals after ingesting this product as lethargy and drowsiness and in very strange cases, itching and vomiting. To avoid poisoning, at the time of observing an allergic reaction, its use must be suspended and taken to the veterinarian.

Users who still see this remedy with skepticism for fear of possible addictions should know that CBD is a byproduct of the hemp leaf that has been treated to eliminate THC, an illegal substance in several countries for recreational use.

For all this, it is important to check the labels of cannabidiol products, which do not have THC, especially if they are going to be consumed by pets, which are more sensitive to the effects of this psychotropic. And verify that it is a product, which meets the Spanish and CE sanitary quality.

As has been observed, science and technology advance every day to improve the quality of life of people and their spoiled pets.

Just as their owners use CBD oil to relieve their physical, psychological and even emotional ailments, veterinarians have proven optimal results in its application to relieve the most recurrent symptoms such as inflammation, pain, anxiety and epileptic attacks in dogs.
