There is a hemp health revolution underway that is
transforming our world. The use of safe, natural and
extremely effective Hemp Extract products are rescuing
people from pain, stress, anxiety, epilepsy and even cancer. In
fact, more than 40 health issues have improved by taking Hemp
It is a sad fact that our pets now mirror their human's
patterns of chronic illnesses. These days, our pets are also
diagnosed with inflamed joints, anxiety, depression, epilepsy,
and stress. Most disturbing of all, cancer is the leading cause
of death in dogs.
Hemp Extract—Insuring Our Pet's Health
Fortunately, our furry friends have a natural option that can
help them get healthy. Hemp Extract is working miracles for our
Instead of relying upon pharmaceutical drugs which are
often toxic and expensive, Hemp Extract is proving to be an
extremely effective and safe alternative. It has proven to reduce
or totally alleviate many of the health issues that cause our pets
A Word About Hemp Extract and The Endocannabinoid System
Nature is the source of the healing energy that allows us to align
with health and vitality. Throughout time immemorial, Mother
Nature has worked her healing magic through medicinal plants.
Through the advancement of science, recent discoveries have
unlocked the healing secret of one particular ancient medicinal
plant, cannabis sativa. The hemp plant, cannabis sativa, has
powerful healing, non-psychoactive constituents, known as
cannabinoids or Hemp Extract. These constituents are capable
of restoring balance and harmony throughout the entire body
without any known side-effects.
It is important to emphasize that when we talk about Hemp
Extract, we are talking about the non-psychoactive component
of the cannabis sativa plant, which is legal in all 50 states.
This amazing plant is able to restore our body to inner
balance, or homeostasis, through a newly discovered system
called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS deserves
lots of attention and respect! This is because the ECS is
considered the fundamental physiological system for creating
and supporting optimal health.
Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout
the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and
immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs
different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis,
the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite
fluctuations in the external environment.
The ECS insures that the communication between all the
biological systems is working perfectly. Some of the processes
that the ECS controls include: pain perception, gastrointestinal
motility, memory, sleep, response to stress, anxiety, depression,
bone repair, growth of new brain cells, reduction of excessive
inflammation, regulation of hormonal systems, fertility,
protection from strokes and other neurodegenerative problems.
All vertebrates contain an Endocannabinoid System. Therefore
our pets—dogs, horses, cats, rabbits, mice, birds, reptiles,
etc.,— all have an Endocannabinoid System!
Since the ECS guides and protects all vital physiological
processes by insuring homeostasis, if our ECS is out-of-whack,
the health of all the systems would be altered.
Since Hemp Extract has been proven to support and
optimize the functioning of the Endocannabinoid System, all of
the benefits attributed to the use of Hemp Extract by humans
are also the same for animals.
Resolving Pet Health Issues
Instead of relying on pharmaceutical medications with their
long, list of side-effects (just like in humans), the use of Hemp
Extract offers an effective, affordable and safe option. Hemp
Extract has demonstrated success for a wide variety of animal's
Calming Anxious Animals
Our pets are easily affected by stress and anxiety. It may be due
to previous abuse or trauma. Anxiety and stress often occur
from loud noises such as a thunderclap or fireworks. It can send
dogs and cats into such distress that they are terrified for hours.
Perhaps they have separation or abandonment anxiety when left
alone. Or, it could just be the animal's nature. Whatever the
cause, Hemp Extract can come to the rescue.
Hemp Extract would be a natural solution for this reaction.
When an anxiety-inducing situation is about to occur such as
a thunderstorm, give them a dose of Hemp Extract. This will
help them to chill and show decreased signs of nervousness
and agitation. as a treatment for dog anxiety has produced
amazing results. Anecdotes abound of dogs that have suffered
from so much chronic anxiety that they have never integrated
properly into their human family, but were able to have dramatic
turnarounds when treated with Hemp Extract.
Hemp Extract can be a huge help in overcoming nausea,
vomiting or a sensitive stomach. For instance, cats that are
having a hard time adjusting to a new food or who have a weak
stomach can benefit from some Hemp Extract. Since, cats can be notoriously fickle with their food and may
avoid it if it smells differently than normal, you may want to
introduce the Hemp Extract implement slowly over a period of time.
Helping with Pain and Arthritis
Hip and joint pain are a common challenge for older dogs. This
is particularly true for breeds that are especially prone to certain
painful diseases such as herniated discs, hip inflammation,
arthritis, and intervertebral disc disease. It goes without saying
that pain will limit a dog's mobility and quality of life.
Of course, cats, too, often deal with painful conditions,
as they get older. In fact, most animals, large or small, will be
vulnerable to pain with age.
Racing horses often retire with severe injuries at a young
age. Chronic pain can significantly shorten a horse's life span
by forcing them to favor one leg at the expense of others. Hemp
Extract can be used both topically and orally to help reduce
inflammation and accelerate healing of painful joints.
Hemp Extract is a powerful anti-inflammatory that can
quickly reduce pain and improve the ability to be more active.
Unlike prescribed medications, Hemp Extract is totally safe and
fast-acting for reducing any kind of pain and arthritis.
Reducing Allergic Reactions
Another wonderful benefit of Hemp Extract is its ability to address
the problem of an allergic reaction. Allergies may cause a variety
of reactions, which include skin issues such as dermatitis, mange
Just like in humans, pets experience an allergic reaction when
their immune system views a substance (like pollen, chemicals
or insect saliva) as a threat and increases the production of
histamines in the body's systems. Animals show itching either
by chewing or licking their skin or scratching. Commonly affected
are the cheeks, belly, feet, the armpit region and ears.
Hemp Extract will calm an overactive immune system that
contributes to allergic reactions. It will help to reduce itching
and skin irritations.
A Natural Solution for Cancer
Hemp Extract has been found to have an anti-tumor effect. It
has even been shown to stop cancer cells from growing and
increased tumor cell death.
Some more progressive veterinarians are now including
Hemp Extract in their protocols for their patients. Australian
veterinarian, Edward Bassingthwaighte, discovered how Hemp
Extract could be a critical part of his holistic veterinary practice.
One of his patients was a senior Staffordshire terrier who had a
6cm mammary tumor and metastasis that disappeared in three
months. The good news was that it never came back.
Palliative Care for Pets
Hemp Extract can contribute to a dignified final phase of life for
your pet. It will help to create a calm, peaceful emotional state
while reducing pain.
Treating Seizures And Epilepsy
It's estimated that up to five percent of dogs suffer from
seizures. Most dogs with seizures are put on drugs such as
phenobarbital and potassium bromide. While they may help
control the seizures, they can be extremely harmful to the dog's
liver and other organs. And the drugs don't work in all cases.
Hemp Extract has proven to be another safe and effective
alternative treatment for this condition.
Keeping Your Pet Young and Healthy
Just like their human companions, pets can benefit from Hemp
Extract's ability to improve the endocannabinoid tone. It will
support optimal health and enhance the body‘s ability to repair
and regenerate at any age. Your pet deserves a natural antiaging
How to Give Hemp Extract to Animals
There are many ways to administer Hemp Extract to animals. It
can be added to their food, mixed in with their favorite treats or
directly into their mouths. If you have a picky pet, then introduce
it slowly in smaller doses with their food or with their treats.
There are no known side effects from taking Hemp Extract.
It is advised to begin slowly with a lower dose and, if there
are no indications of improvement, then begin to increase
the dose. Changes usually occur within 30 minutes. If there
is no change after an hour, increase the dosage. Occasionally
improvements will take more than one treatment. To control
pain, give approximately every eight hours. For other uses, or
to break unwanted behavior patterns, give once or twice a day.
The dose depends on the size of the animal as well as the
severity of the symptoms. Some animals respond with a small
amount and others require a larger dose. As with humans,
you will need to experiment to find the appropriate amount to
successfully resolve the issue or alleviate discomfort of your pet.
Remember you cannot overdose and there is no toxicity
associated with Hemp Extracts. Hemps Extracts can be given
from a dropper bottle directly into the mouth, added to food,
dropped on a treat or dropped on an animal's paw so they will
lick it off. Topical Hemp Extract formulations can be rubbed into
bare skin or inside the ears. You can find Hemp Extract biscuits,
hemp capsules and gel caps, and topical hemp ointments.
My recommendation is to find a product that is organically
grown, processed without solvents or alcohol and uses the most
effective delivery system such as a liposomal delivery system.
One of my favorite organic, third party verified, liposomal
Hemp Extract products is called Optihemp and is available from
As exciting as Hemp Extract is for restoring health in the
human realm, it is equally exciting to know that it can help our
beloved pet companions to also regain their health. Mother
Nature does it again!
