CBD Dog Treats: What's the Deal?

Everyone and their dogs are talking about CBD dog treats these days, and you are probably wondering what CBD even is and how you can get in on this amazing secret anyways. To start this all off, let’s talk about what CBD actually is and why so many people are implementing it into their dogs daily routine and supplement stack. CBD stands for Cannabinol and this is a compound that is found within the cannabis plant, and research has shown that CBD makes up almost 40% of plants' natural extracts. Cannabis is most widely known and recognized for another compound found within the plant, called THC. THC is what produces the “high” that most people first think of when we refer to cannabis, when it comes to pets this is the type of side effect we strive to avoid. It is extremely important to understand that when we are discussing CBD for pets specifically, we are referring to CBD that has been extracted from the hemp plant, as this contains very minimal THC levels to begin with. There is a special process that occurs to separate CBD from the hemp plant which results in the CBD oil which is full of amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids and many other beneficial compounds while containing no traces of THC at all. With all of that being said, you can be sure to find these safe and naturally occurring properties when you implement Kitsie into your pets daily life. 


Now, why are people so eager to add CBD into their pets' lives? The simple answer is that CBD has so many benefits, so why wouldn't you invest in CBD treats for your furry friend! On a more serious note, there are actually plenty of serious benefits that come along with implementing CBD dog treats regularly and if you don't know what those are yet, keep on reading! 


The first reason that comes to mind when I am thinking about CBD dog treats is the fact they help reduce anxiety and stress. CBD is good for dogs who are generally anxious all the time, or even for event related anxiety and stressors that trigger your pets need for comfort. If you are wondering what anxiety looks like in a dog, the signs might include and are not limited to: Excessive barking (or meowing if you have a pet cat!), separation anxiety, biting people, things or even toys excessively, defecating and urinating (this may happen even in a crate), shaking and other behaviours that may be seen as aggressive.  Although we cant verbally communicate with dogs, nor can we read their minds - we can collect research and evidence through trials of different products and nutrients that one may add to their dogs life. With all of that being said, research has shown time and time again that CBD has the potential to help dogs and reduce feelings of anxiety and stress. It is also important to mention that CBD has proved to help humans remain calm and lower levels of anxiety as well. 


Secondly, CBD has been seen to aid in the fight against cancer. CBD oil has been noted to play an integral part in improving a pets quality of life during their fight against cancer by soothing many of the unpleasant side effects, such as nausea, pain and loss of appetite that come along with treatment plans (such as chemotherapy). The fact that CBD may aid in the treatment of cancer in pets is extremely important due to the impact this makes on your pets quality of life and how hard it can be to deal with that as an owner. CBD has been seen to slow the spread of cancer cells in the body as CBD plays a huge part in boosting the immune system. CBD oil also has many properties that suggest the ability to combat the process of tumor formation. With all this in mind, CBD could play an essential role in reducing cancer risk in your pet, and even slowing down tumor formation. 


Moreover, CBD has been used time and time again to reduce Inflammation and help with Autoimmune Diseases. If your pet suffers from joint pain, multiple sclerosis or chronic pain, CBD could be a great addition in helping your pet with managing the discomfort that tags along with these conditions. Through a vast amount of research, CBD oil has continuously proven to play an important role in helping to manage and improve one’s immune system. It has been seen that the CBD compound can lower the production rate of inflammatory cytokines that may be triggering autoimmune diseases, allergies and many other sensitivities that your pet may be experiencing.


Another super common reason that I see people giving their pets CBD treats for is something as simple as pain relief. CBD has been widely known for its ability to aid in pain relief. As mentioned previously, CBD helps with combatting and fighting inflammation in the body, this in turn helps to alleviate pain. It is important to note that CBD also has other ways of relieving pain. To be more specific, CBD increases the levels of a neurotransmitter called anandamide. This neurotransmitter is known to help with effectively suppressing pain, memory and managing one's appetite.


Finally, CBD has proven to help with heart health. Research has continuously proven that the CBD compound has the ability to aid in the repairing process when it comes to damaged blood vessels. In addition, CBD has been noted to help with irregular heart beats as well as lower blood pressure in pets who suffer from blood pressure problems.
