How does CBD interact with your pet biologically? 

Every animal and human has what’s known as an endocannabinoid system (ECS)––a genetically inherent system designed to regulate a range of functions from sleep to appetite, and more. 

When CBD interacts with your ECS, it works to promote a sense of balance and well-being in the mind and body. 

Fun fact: Animals actually have twice as many endocannabinoid receptors than humans do in their ECS! 

 

What conditions can CBD for pets help with?

Along with promoting homeostasis in the mind and body, research has shown that CBD can help pets suffering from a variety of conditions including: 

  • Anxiety
  • Dry skin 
  • Joint pain and arthritis 
  • Seizures and epilepsy
  • Irritable bowel disease 

And more.

What kind of CBD products are safe for pets? 

When looking to purchase CBD for pets, it’s important to look for high-quality, lab tested CBD products. Always be sure that the products have a Certificate of Analysis (COA) and have been tested by a third-party lab to guarantee their content and purity. 

CBD oil is the most effective remedy for pets due to its higher bioavailability, however there are other ways your pet can get their daily dose of CBD such as treats. 

 

How to use CBD for pets

For best results, drop a dose of the CBD oil into their food both morning and night or every 12 hours.

Always be sure to store your CBD oil in a dark, cool, and dry place to ensure the product maintains its integrity.

Balms and Salves that Soothe Aches in Your Joints: CBD & Arthritis Pain

Balms and Salves that Soothe Aches in Your Joints: CBD & Arthritis Pain

“The first time I ever tried CBD was to help sooth my anxiety… A bonus to the whole thing was the relief from various aches and pains I have. Especially the arthritis in my knees. It immediately alleviated 90% of my pain… The benefits of CBD oil are unlike anything any pill or medication can do.”

-Tom Hanks

 

There’s no argument in the conversation surrounding all of the many ways cannabis can be used as a medicine. Scientists continue prove its merit, and growing numbers of people turn away from harmful pharmaceuticals in favor of natural remedies as information spreads. The most widely studied component of cannabis’s value to people and animals alike surrounds the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of CBD—specifically, as a treatment for those who suffer from the ever-present debilitating pain associated with arthritis. 

According to medshadow.org, most pharmaceutical solutions to living with arthritis pain come with side-effects that commonly include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, anemia, hair loss, and more in some cases. Why put yourself through CBD has been proven to provide therapeutic relief for arthritis-related pain and increase mobility from those who suffer. Most importantly, as stated by researchers at the University of Kentucky funded by the American Cancer Society, this solution comes “without [any] evident side-effects.” 

We recently provided our CBD soothing balm to Maddy, who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis in multiple areas of her body. “My right hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, and neck,” she describes, “have always been the worst for my RA pain.”  She would suffer from swelling, chronic pain, and severe lack of mobility that would understandably leave her fatigued and frustrated. After consistent use of topical CBD, the improvement in her day-to-day quality of life spoke for itself. “The soothing balm was a game changer. It’s not what you feel,” explains Maddy, “it’s what you don’t. Pain.” 

As the ideological separation between the hysteria of cannabis as dope and as medication solidifies, we should all focus on Maddy’s words. CBD is a non-psychoactive solution to debilitating pain that brings with it ZERO side-effects to the user. If you suffer from arthritis pain, please reach out with any questions to see how the Just Breathe family can help you!

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate

“I’m really optimistic about the future, because we have solutions in nature that we can now amplify and be able to deploy.”

-Paul Stamets

Fun fact: an abundant solution to many of the aches, pains, and stresses that characterize our daily lives has been at our fingertips for thousands of years! If you’ve found your way to our site, then you probably know this already, or maybe you’d just like to learn more. So, let’s just get into the three main variations of CBD and how each works uniquely to improve your sense of wellbeing and optimize your health!

 

  • CBD Isolate: Products with CBD isolate contain only CBD, without any other substances or additives. Isolate products are perfect if your needs include targeted symptoms or pains, or if you need to stay THC free due to required drug tests. Also, if you are sensitive to other cannabinoids or don’t like the occasionally anxiety-inducing effects of THC, CBD isolate is great for counteracting these effects. 
  • Broad Spectrum CBD: We call this our happy medium between isolate and full spectrum products. Just like isolate, broad spectrum contains zero THC; it does however contain many other beneficial components of the hemp plant (CBD, CBG, CBN, and terpenes to name a few). The benefit here lies in capturing what’s known as the “Entourage Effect,” which utilizes all of the compounds in cannabis to enhance effectiveness of their medicinal uses. In other words, the various components of the cannabis plant work together to employ more therapeutic effects when combined then when they are taken alone.
  • Full Spectrum CBD: Full spectrum—also referred to as whole plant CBD—utilizes all bioavailable compounds in the cannabis plant to provide maximum therapeutic relief for TONS of conditions and symptoms. In addition to the curative essential oils and compounds included in broad spectrum, THC is present in full spectrum at trace amounts up to 0.3%; levels low enough to generate minimal, if not unnoticeable psychoactive effects. Full spectrum products maximize the “Entourage Effect” and are the most effective in treating issues with sleep and stress.
