As our pets age, we know that slowly but surely, their bodies stop working quite as well as they used to, things slow down, and new health conditions arise.
But there are so many ways our pets can experience relief using CBD products. While we cannot stop the ageing process, we’re grateful for the knowledge that CBD can help create the most enjoyable and comfortable final years possible.
Scientific studies have attested that CBD has the capacity to promote healthy aging by offering mitochondrial support. Mitochondria — which are membrane-bound cell organelles — play an extremely important role in the longevity and quality of life.
Additionally, CBD’s potential to significantly reduce inflammation in the body has been shown to contribute to a healthy brain during the ageing process. The reduction of inflammation is also a key piece in helping mitigate arthritis and joint issues, which are commonly seen in older animals.
CBD has also been found to act as a preventative against the onset of dementia, by supporting functions in the brain. And if your pet already is showing signs of cognitive decline? CBD has been shown to assist with cognitive support for those who are already experiencing dementia.
CBD has been long-used to manage pain, which older pets often experience from achy joints, or pain related to serious illnesses like cancer. In turn, managing pain means better sleep for animals who suffer from insomnia due to being uncomfortable.
Speaking of cancer, CBD studies have shown promise in helping treat cancer (often in conjunction with veterinary medical support) by helping overcome cancer cells, preventing tumours from increasing in size or spreading, and improving the efficacy of western medical cancer treatments.
CBD has also been researched for its ability to increase appetite. For animals who are ill with a specific health condition, or for those who have simply lost their appetite due to the lethargy and disinterest in routine that comes with ageing, CBD may assist in boosting appetite — thus providing an animal with the crucial energy reserves needed to fight health issues.
Any time we are working with senior pets, our first recommendation is a full spectrum oil. Older pets who may be degenerating — or battling various health concerns — require more advanced and complete care than younger, healthier pets.
Because of this, the best and most effective choice is our Spectrum oil. Spectrum contains all the naturally-occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds (including trace amounts of THC) found in the hemp plant.
The amount of THC contained in Spectrum is so miniscule that it is not possible to create an intoxicating effect when administered at our recommended dose. Its presence is solely to assist other compounds in boosting efficacy — as there is growing evidence that full spectrum oil can be more beneficial in some circumstances, due to what’s known as the “entourage effect,” where all compounds are available and can work together to be more effective.
Because this oil is best for pets who need extra care, our senior pets will most benefit from it. Rich in omega-3 and -6 fatty acids that contribute to the well-being of the brain, ageing can be a more healthful, natural process with the help of Spectrum.
