Hemp works by interacting with your pet’s endocannabinoid system. How exactly ? Well, many people are unaware that all mammals have an endocannabinoid system and your pet on his/her own produces natural endocannabiniods which are picked up by receptors in their system. The hemp compounds in our products, which is also a cannabinoid, is also picked up by your pet’s receptors throughout this system. The endocannabiniod system, is a system in mammals’ bodies which affects anxiety, pain, mood, digestion, inflammation and sleep. Hemp extract helps to regulate this system therefore assisting in all the areas above. It has also helped with skin irritations and skin allergy rashes when applied topically.

Can CBD Hemp Oil Help with Dog Allergies?
Can CBD Hemp Oil Help with Dog Allergies?
Research into the benefits of CBD in various conditions that affect dogs has become common and a great resource for information is SimplyPets.com – Cannabidiol. So, be sure to visit to learn more and stay up to date with all things cannabis for pets. The acceptance of CBD oil as a viable and holistic approach to several common ailments opened a door to new and exciting outcomes in pet health. One of the most frequent conditions dogs suffer from are allergies, and CBD oil has proven an effectiveness in helping to curtail allergic reactions.
Do Dogs Get Allergies?
Dogs are like humans in that they also suffer from sensitivity ranging anywhere from household products to pollen and foods. However, it is often difficult to narrow down what the allergy is, as dogs are exposed to so many factors and are unable to communicate what might have caused a reaction.
Behaviors such as coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, and excessive scratching could be indicative of an environmental allergy. Food allergies can also become symptomatic through excessive gas, diarrhea, and vomiting. A dog can develop a food allergy over time, as repeated exposure to the same food can create a sensitivity to chemically-laced proteins. It is important to offer your dog a variety of food to prevent such sensitivities.
Dogs are also affected by the same allergens that plague their human counterparts. Cleaning solutions, scented candles, pesticides, and other obtrusive chemicals can set off allergies in your dog. It is important to watch for signs of an allergic reaction and try to narrow down the cause as well as talk to your vet about treatment options, such as CBD oil.
How does CBD work to control allergies?
A dog’s allergies tie directly into their immune system. CBD oil has been found to communicate directly with your dog’s endocannabinoid system, which supports cell health and repairs systems within the body. Since CBD is an anti-inflammatory, it aids in reducing inflammation that is often the root of symptoms created by an allergic reaction.
CBD is not a miracle supplement, however, but using it daily will eventually help to curb the most aggressive symptoms associated with your dog’s allergies.
Will it work?
Although CBD can make a huge difference in your dog’s more excessive allergy symptoms, it will be most effective if paired with an effort to help control allergens that your dog is being exposed to. It’s not a cure-all but should instead be part of an overall treatment program to help your dog become more comfortable.
A combined effort of CBD supporting the dog’s immune system paired with dietary changes and modifications to cleaning supplies and scents used around the home will offer a joint effort in lessening and perhaps resolving your dog’s allergic responses. CBD should be monitored and administered on a routine basis to guarantee that it will continue to work as expected.
If your dog suffers from extreme allergies, all you want to do is help them feel better. Talking with your vet about CBD treatment may lead to lessening your dog’s worrisome symptoms and restore a better, freer quality of life.
