Hemp and Anxiety
I belong to several Facebook groups for pet parents, and this week the same question is being asked over and over again - "My dog has anxiety, what do I do?"
July always sees a spike in dogs turned into the shelter because fireworks and thunderstorms can trigger their fight or flight response in a big way. Pet anxiety can be dangerous for everyone - dogs run away, they jump in front of cars, they get aggressive - so knowing how to deal with it is going to help make your summer celebrations run much more smoothly.
There are a lot of things you can do, but I want to talk specifically about hemp products. Like many things mother nature has provided us, hemp is one of those blessings that used to be commonly used but was replaced and forgotten by modern medicine's imperfect imitations.
Industrial hemp contains a component called CBD, or Cannabidiol. Both pet and human brains contain what are called Cannabanoid Receptors, and they received this name because of how perfectly several cannabanoid compounds bind to them. These receptors are found throughout the body and promote homeostasis, or balance. Therefore, when they bind to cannabanoids, they are promoting balance throughout the body, and support health in a myriad of ways.
Many people are beginning to use CBD products to regulate pain, anxiety, and even seizures and cancer. It is a homeopathic alternative to literally hundreds of medications that can't do the job as well as nature can. What is really great about using it for pets is that they actually have almost twice as many cannabanoid receptors as humans do, so if it works well for people, you know it is going to work wonders for pets.
Want to know more? If you read THIS article you can get super sciency, but honestly it was a little over my head, not being a scientist. If you want more information on hemp for pets, our favorite brand Healthy Hemp (local to SLC) has some great LINKS on their website you can use for further research. There is a reason Healthy Hemp is the number 1 seller at Desert Raw!
Steve's Real Food (also a locally-based company) has a hemp product we carry in the store that also has raw goat milk. The article describing their success with pet anxiety can be found HERE.
We also have other great items, including our Farm Dog Natural's RELAX tincture.
In the long term, training and coping mechanisms, exposure therapy, and more can help relieve dog anxiety, but if you need something to get you through the summer holidays, our hemp products will all be 10% off through July 4th. We want your pets to be comfortable during the holiday, and we strongly believe this is a great option.

CBD is very effective against separation anxiety which is very common in dogs. Separation anxiety has a significant negative influence on the mental health of the dogs and suitable initiatives should be taken into consideration to stabilize the mental health of the dogs. Regular exercise not only has a positive influence on the physical health of the dogs but also has a positive influence on the mental health of the dogs. The use of CBD has a significant positive influence on the mental health of the dogs as it helps to reduce the stress and anxiety developed in dogs.
I agree. Not all the expensive pet foods are the best or have a good benefits. The best thing to choose or to do is that to care your pet. Proper hygiene and healthy foods for them. Last time when my horse is getting sick my friends are recommended a Black Seed Oil. But now I read those sentences are so good to follow and apply. Then, I just stop using a Black Seed Oil in a while. Btw. Thank you for sharing this blog & God bless...
I got this. Those sentences are good because of its directed point of view, I collected more useful parts of sentences which are nice to re-posted and re-write to share somebody. I love the poin-of-view just like haarlem-oil.com blog post. Thank you so much for sharing this article. Hope you posted more content about health benefits. God bless!!
It's interesting to know that our pets can have twice as many cannabinoid receptors as humans do, so they work better for them. With that in mind, I will suggest that my sister talks to a professional to get the right pet CBD for her dog. It's because her dog is of old age by now, and it started experiencing health issues and body pain that we feel bad for.

I like that you talked about how CBD would be helpful for regulating pain, anxiety, and other illnesses since it is a homeopathic alternative for medications. I wonder if organic pet oils would also have that kind of option available for my dog. It's because my pet has been really scared of the thunder ever since it was little, so I hope to use something that will reduce its anxiety.

I do hope that many people can be educated on the miracles of CBD.

It's great that you elaborated that you could use CBD products as treatments for different illnesses just like modern medicines. My cousin told me a few nights ago that he was hoping to find natural health care for his equine for a healthy life and recovery process. He asked me if I had any idea what would be the best option to consider. Thanks to this informative article. I’ll tell him we could try to use CBD products for his horses as it has many benefits for their physical and mental health.
