As much as we rave about the anti-inflammatory and calming effects of CBD on the human body, we realize that hemp-derived products provide some of the same perks for our furry companions. CBD tinctures and treats have developed into a solid market, as most of us treat our pooches and cat friends a lot better than we even treat ourselves. If you haven’t already considered a CBD treatment for your own right-hand pet, perhaps its time to give it a try to help soothe your pet's nerves when dealing with loud noises like thunder, construction, and celebrations. 

Though less research has been done for using CBD on our furry friends, there has been enough anecdotal proof that it aids them when it comes to anxiety. What we do know is that cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors in the nervous system, helping to maintain balance in the body. 

As with many CBD products for humans, all pet products are created with THC-free or low THC formulas, with the non-psychoactive components of the marijuana plant. Giving Fido supplemental treats or putting a couple of Moon Mother Hemp CBD Hemp Oil Tincture in their food even once a week could help balance and maintain normal bodily functions, just as it's been proven for humans. Moon Mother Hemp Company even created a gorgeous Pet Care Topical Balm to massage into their joints! Hemp for Pets Joint Health Soft Chews help to support your pet's mobility, Hemp for Pets Soft Baked Cat Chews help to regulate your little friend's bodily functions, while we stock Salmon and Coconut CannaDrops and Sheabrand's Broad Spectrum Pet Tincture in hopes to decrease the side effects of anxiety in your fur friend.**If your pet has known behavioral issues or outbursts, it is advisable to seek a veterinarian’s opinion before starting them on any supplemental options. 

At the very least, CBD companies are very restrictive about the ingredients in their animal treats and tend to make them in smaller batches for quality control. So if you’re looking for a healthier, more natural option for your furry friend that isn’t loaded with fillers and questionable ingredients, adding CBD into your pet’s daily regimen is an ideal place to start. 

Be sure to check dosage options for the size of your pet, normally located on the packaging or at EMPUROS. We carry an array of CBD pet products, and curated only the best for our marketplace. Check out all of your options now!
