How to Know if Cannabis Supplements Are Right for Your Pet

Across the United States, more and more pet parents are turning to cannabis-based pet products to enhance the happiness and overall well-being of their cats and dogs. Moreover, because hemp-based supplements are completely legal, many pet parents favor these products over marijuana supplements, which are still illegal to own in many parts of the US. However, considering the wealth of information on hemp and marijuana floating around the internet, it can be very challenging to determine whether cannabis-based pet supplements will work well for your canine. Fortunately, your friends here at Canna Companion will be shedding some light on that subject today. Let’s jump right in.

A Brief Rundown on Cannabis Supplements for Pets

Cannabis supplements are designed to provide natural support for the health and balance of your pet’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located within every tissue of his or her body. When concentrations of the natural compounds found in cannabis interact with these receptors, a number of physiologic and pathophysiologic processes occur, fostering increased comfort and health through adjunctive and palliative therapy. Best of all, when used at low doses there are no known negative interactions between cannabis supplements and other supplements or veterinarian-prescribed therapies.  The ECS excels at bridging the gaps between various therapies so your cat or dog (regardless of age, breed or condition) can benefit from the phenomenal effects of these formulations.

How Do Cannabis Supplements Aid Pets?

To give you a better idea of whether cannabis supplements are the right choice for your pet, let’s take a few minutes to review their potential benefits. Of course, each cannabis product brings different advantages to the table due to its unique composition, so we’ll be using our Canna Companion hemp supplement as an example here. Canna Companion can aid your pet in the following areas simply because the ECS has one function: identify and correct stress signals within the body, no matter where that stress is located.  

  1. GI Tract Support

The phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in Canna Companion support key digestive processes in cats and dogs, ensuring normal GI tract health and function.

  1. Immunity

Your cat or dog’s immune system protects them from a wide range of potential health threats. Canna Companion provides exceptional support to this key defensive system, keeping your pet in great condition.

  1. Mobility and Joint Support

Daily activities and exercises can put significant pressure on your pet’s joints, causing mobility and joint issues. Luckily, Canna Companion can mitigate this issue by supporting his or her general joint health, managing any discomfort caused by normal exercises and activities.

  1. Neurology

Canna Companion can support your pet’s mental health and performance by maintaining optimal neurological function.

  1. Comfort and Care

Canna Companion is a great boon for pet parents looking for a product to assist in “end of life” comfort and care for their animal.

  1. Demeanor

By helping pets to overcome any temporary and/or situational anxieties, Canna Companion can encourage a calm and relaxed demeanor in dogs and cats.

If you’d like to provide any of the benefits listed above for your cat or dog, then you should strongly consider investing in a cannabis supplement for them. However, before you start researching and ordering different cannabis products for your lovable companion, it’s essential to check in with their doctor first. That’s right, it’s time for a vet visit…

Consulting With Your Veterinarian

Ultimately, the fastest and most effective way to determine whether your dog or cat will benefit from a cannabis supplement is to consult with your veterinarian. Your favorite animal expert understands your pet’s health needs and constraints better than anyone else, making them a great source of knowledge and support on the subject. With their help and expertise, you and your veterinarian can assess the best supplements to promote optimal comfort, health and care for your pet.
