How CBD Hemp Oil Can Help Your Pet’s Situational Anxiety

Oct 13, 2015

CBD is extremely helpful in aiding pets situational anxiety.

Do you ever look at your dog or cat during a thunderstorm or when someone has just knocked on the door and see that fearful look in their eyes? A lot of times our pets cannot control their anxiety or fear. During the holidays when people are in scary costumes or when you’re traveling, our furry friends are often scared. Pet Releaf CBD Hemp oil is the best solution for your pet’s situational anxiety prevention!

How does CBD help your pet’s anxiety? 

Cannabidiol (CBD) from the Hemp plant has been known to work wonders with people and with pets when it comes to temporary anxiety prevention. There are multiple scientific studies showing the positive effects of CBD for a multitude of health conditions- including pain management and anxiety reduction.

When CBD enters a mammals endocannabinoid system, specific receptors found throughout the body are activated. These are the only receptors in the body that allow for 2 way communication between body systems. Basically, CBD makes it easier for the body to calm down and relieve tension and temporary anxiety, because receptors in the endocannabinoid system can now “speak” to each other.

Pet Releaf organic CBD oil is extracted using no chemical solvents, it is safe for your pets (they can never over-dose), and it is non-psychoactive.

Situational Anxiety and CBD

There are two main kinds of anxiety experienced by pets, behavioral and situational. Most of the time our pets experience situational anxiety caused when certain activities are occurring and not something that your pet is experiencing all of the time. Common activities that can cause situational anxiety in our pets are:

  • Lightning/Thunderstorms
  • Travel
  • Having company over
  • Fireworks

CBD is extremely helpful in aiding situational anxiety because of it’s soothing and calming properties. Behavioral anxiety, like separation anxiety or increased aggression, need professional training and can’t be “fixed” by using CBD products alone. CBD products should be administered on top of training to help your pet relax and stay calm, however the products alone can’t alter your pet’s personality or eliminate behavioral anxiety.

Whether you’re looking to prevent pet situational anxiety during trick-or-treating season or if you’re traveling with your cat, Pet Releaf Hemp Oil will help. Make sure that you start giving it to your pets as soon as possible so their Endocannabinoid system can function at optimal levels. We suggest administering Pet Releaf products to your furry friends about 30 minutes before any of the holiday fun begins, splitting the recommended dosage between the AM/PM and outside of mealtimes.
