Ricks Hemp Oil for Pets
I am asked hundreds of times weekly if Hemp oil can help pets. The answer is yes the oil can help all mammals. The oil humans and animals take is the same and I always wonder why pet hemp companies are branding oils especially for pets.
HEMP OIL– NATURAL RELIEF FOR YOUR PET
Hemp has profound healing and balancing effects on all mammals. Pet owners have used it for a broad spectrum of medical and behavioural issues — cancer pain, arthritis, muscle spasms, seizures, neurological and digestive disorders, anxieties, obsessions, past traumas, withdrawal, mood, and memory. During recovery from illness or surgery, Cannabinoids can stimulate the appetite and speed healing. At the end of life, it can ease the pain and fear your pet may be experiencing. Cannabinoids do all this by stimulating the endocannabinoid system.
THE ECS AND HOW IT WORKS
Named after the plant that led to its discovery, the endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors located throughout the body. Short-lived natural endocannabinoid substances are synthesized on demand by the body to maintain homeostasis, a stable internal environment. When these internal mechanisms lag behind the body’s needs, supplementing with extra Cannabinoids can help. Research also suggests that supplementing can coax the body to build more receptors so natural cannabinoids will work more effectively.
Two types of receptors have been identified: CB1 receptors, predominantly in the brain, nervous system, glands and organs; and CB2 receptors, found mainly in the regulatory cells of the immune system. Many tissues contain both receptors, each linked to a different action. A key role of the endocannabinoid system is controlling inflammation by up-regulating or down-regulating the immune response. An overactive response can lead to allergies and auto-immune problems; an underactive one can leave the body susceptible to infections and the unchecked proliferation of cancer cells.
