Hemp is becoming a popular ingredient for pet wellness as natural, holistic medicine is becoming more available. CBD and full spectrum hemp products are very attractive to pet parents, as they help ease pain and anxiety without the need for pharmaceuticals. Since hemp products are relatively new on the market, it’s natural for first-timers to be a little nervous about giving their pet hemp products. Here’s what you need to know:

Benefits of Hemp

Nervous pets, and pets that are in pain from old age or recovery from surgery or illness have shown to find the most comfort in hemp products. Full spectrum hemp products are used to help calm anxious pets and relieve them of aches and pain in the most natural way possible. The reason that pets will respond to full spectrum hemp products is because of their endocannabinoid system.

How it Works: the Endocannabinoid System

Full spectrum hemp oil comes from the hemp plant. Hemp contains many cannabinoids that can have different medicinal benefits. At Holistic Hound, we’ve carefully formulated a line of full spectrum hemp products, but many hemp brands use isolates containing CBD only, and not the other cannabinoids that are found in hemp. The reason we see such great results with this natural herb is because our pets, like humans, have an endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system runs through their entire body, from the nervous system, immune system, organs, glands, and tissues. When you give your pet hemp products, hemp will naturally interact with the endocannabinoid system, helping to relieve pets of several symptoms.

THC

While THC is another cannabinoid found in hemp, many hemp products for pets have removed the THC for non-psychoactive products. Our hemp products do not contain any THC. We are only interested in the healing and health properties associated with hemp.

Proper Dose

Every animal will react differently, so following the directions provided by the manufacturer is essential. Since our full spectrum hemp products are non-psychoactive, you can increase the dosing as much as you’d like until the desired results are achieved. The first time you give your pet a hemp product, make sure you are present and able to closely monitor his reaction.

Our full spectrum hemp and medicinal mushroom products are carefully created to give your pet maximum health benefits. We have used this product on our pets with excellent results.
