It is becoming more and more well known that Hemp Oil is greatly beneficial for our health. For every human health benefit there is also a benefit for our dogs. There are SO many so we have broken it down to what we think is the TOP 5 reasons you should start using Hemp oil for your dog.
1. Hemp Reduces Anxiety
Does your dog suffer from separation anxiety or noise phobias? Hemp oil has been extensively studied for its effect on stress and anxiety. In humans, research shows it can:
Reduce anxiety caused by public speaking
Reduce anxiety in both healthy people and people with anxiety disorders
Be effective for panic disorders and post-traumatic stress disorders
So, if your dog is suffering from anxiety, hemp oil would be a great way to keep him relaxed when he’s uncomfortable.
2. Hemp Oil Can Relieve Pain
The cannabinoids in hemp oil have also been shown to work well for pain.
Studies show hemp oil can be very effective for reducing:
Pain (including neuropathy and nerve-related pain)
The impact of inflammation on oxidative stress (which causes degeneration and premature ageing)
Inflammation in acute pancreatitis
Intestinal inflammation (associated with irritable bowel disease)
3. Helps With Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Animal studies show that hemp oil can prevent colitis (IBD). Other studies show it can help restore normal gut motility in inflammatory bowel disease.
Hemp also has antibiotic properties, including protection against Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA).
4. Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Hemp has been linked to heart health. Studies show it can:
Reduce the damage from damaged blood vessels and irregular heart rates
Protect blood vessels from damage and dilate the arteries
Reduce heart rate and blood pressure associated with stress and anxiety
5. Can Protect The Nervous System
Hemp oil shows a lot of promise for degenerative myelopathy and other spine and nerve issues. It’s also been shown to help patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
This is thanks to its ability to protect the brain cells from toxicity. For senior dogs, hemp oil can also protect the brain from cell death caused by free radicals and toxins.
