The bond we create with our pets is often so strong it’s said to rival the connections we sometimes create with other people. Whether they’re a cat or a dog (or any other kind of animal), the love we have for our pets also means wanting the best for them in terms of both nutrition and care. When a pet is sick or in pain, finding the right treatment for them is sometimes easier said than done.
CBD oil may not be the solution you would have thought of a few years ago. Still, today it’s rising in popularity as a natural alternative to some conventional pet medications. With positive effects on everything from separation anxiety and stress to joint pain and seizures
Like humans, our furry friends have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is made up of receptors, enzymes, and naturally occurring cannabinoids called endocannabinoids. Pets are seeing amazing results from using American Pure CBD.
Samson, a 10-year-old bulldog, has had trouble getting up. “He is getting older, and sometimes he just can’t get up to go outside and use the bathroom,” said Colin Stout, Samson’s owner. “I just really hate to see him in pain. As we were looking for products to help Samson, we heard about American Pure Pet CBD.”
“We did our research on CBD and decided to give it a try. Not really knowing what to expect or have any expectations because Samson is getting old, we just jumped in. After two weeks in giving Samson CBD twice a day, we noticed that he was able to get up much better and take short walks around the neighborhood block.”
“After a month, he was able to jump up on the couch. I can only give credit to American Pure, says Colin. If we have increased his life for a few years and he can continue to get around like this, it just makes our family happy. I would recommend anyone who has a dog that is getting older to try American Pure.”
“American Pure Pet CBD can help with pain, inflammation, stress, and anxiety. Our pet product is THC free and grown to organic standards. We pride ourselves with sustainably grown, non-GMO, and pesticide-free hemp.” says American Pure farm manager Kerry Codoley
Brutus, James Todd’s 12 yr old lab, was running out of options. “It was getting to a point where I thought the only option would be to put him down,” said James. “His quality of life was just so bad. He was urinating on himself, his joint pain was just too much, and we were running out of options. That is when I decided to try American Pure.”
“I started giving him .25 mg three times a day. Just squirting it under his tongue is what the team at American Pure recommended. He liked the taste and always wanted more. Our big moment was so special. I always walk out to get the mail in the afternoon. When Brutus was younger, he would always go with me. It had been over a year since he had joined me on the mail walk. I get the mail and turn around and there he is right behind me, I just wanted to cry.”
“We can’t explain to you how awesome it is to have Brutus moving around pain-free. We don’t overdo it, but we sure are enjoying our time together. He follows me out to the garden, just like he used to, and we have also noticed his appetite has picked up. Thanks for making such a great product. Brutus is a customer for life.”
CBD may not be able to cure every disease or illness out there, but it can certainly help your pet become much more comfortable.
For any CBD product for you or your pet, your best bet is to find a company that has commissioned independent third-party testing and can provide a Certificate of Analysis, or COA.
The lab results should show how much CBD (and THC) the product contains, as well as how the product did in tests checking for contaminants such as heavy metals and fungicides, Cital says. If you can’t find a COA on the company’s website or the company refuses to share it, that's a red flag.
Cannabinoids are susceptible to degradation. Oils and treats should be kept at room temperature away from bright lights or sunlight. Heating and extreme cold can dramatically change chemical composition. If you have an oil that has changed colors, it’s probably damaged and should be discarded.
