Any pet owner will tell you that the key to a happy feline companion is keeping him or her in the best of health at all times. But is there a way to do so naturally, and painlessly without spending a fortune?
For nearly a decade, the hemp and cannabis compound known as cannabidiol (CBD) has been researched extensively for its incredible potential in natural medicine. Today CBD’s full range of health-positive properties still remains undiscovered, but there is now plenty of scientific evidence to certify its status as a medicinal and therapeutic powerhouse. As such, it is increasingly used in the treatment of various debilitating disorders such as:
- Chronic Pain
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Epilepsy & Seizures
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Chronic Anxiety
- Inflammatory Diseases
- Huntington’s Disease
How Does CBD Work?
CBD works by regulating the function of our endocannabinoid systems, also called ECS. The ECS is responsible for the majority of our physiological processes – from pain and inflammation to anxiety, memory and even sleep. By activating and re-regulating the ECS, CBD is able to affect our chemical and physiological response to a wide range of disorders.
For this reason, CBD has gained tremendous popularity as a natural form of medicine or health supplementation among adults. Because CBD is proven as non-psychoactive, it has also recently become viable for children, and even pets.
