CBD for pets

What is Essenz CBD?

The product is obtained in 100% from hemp grown organically in Europe. It contains omega-3, omega-6 and the full spectrum of cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenoids found in cannabis. The ingredients used are obtained using the latest methods to ensure the highest quality and excellent composition. Cannabidol CBD is a natural chemical compound of plant origin that acts on animal organisms receptors for the endocannabinoid system. It is a system involved in many physiological processes including: regulation of energy management, regulation of neurohormonal, immunological relationships, hunger, motor activity, mood, control of lipid metabolism, etc. The addition of wild salmon oil not only provides an additional portion of omega-3, omega-3 6, vitamins D, A and E, but significantly increases the palatability of the product by facilitating its administration.

CBD effects on the body:

-CBD interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system or ECS.

-ECS is a biological system found in all mammals and is involved in the management of a variety of biological processes, including memory, sleep, immune response, etc. It consists mainly of two types of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), which are found in the brain and body. These receptors are adapted to interact with endocannabinoids (cannabinoids naturally produced by the brain). However, they can also interact with plant-based cannabinoids such as CBD, which in turn causes a variety of reactions throughout the body. As for CBD, many of these answers are very beneficial.

The endocannabinoid system is essentially a system that processes cannabinoids introduced into the body. It should be noted that most of these results are from laboratory (such as rat) or clinical human studies. Nevertheless, the effects of CBD are similar in humans, dogs, cats and other pets due to the fact that, like humans, dogs and cats also have an endocannabinoid system that works like the human ECS. In addition, many of the conditions we list below (e.g., Anxiety, Arthritis, Pain and Seizures) manifest themselves in a similar way in domestic animals as in humans..

The basic benefits of using our CBD oil:

​1. Analgesic effect

European Journal of Pharmacology published a study in 1997 that showed that the endocannabinoid system was deeply involved in pain management. Today CBD has become known for its analgesic properties. CBD helps to deal with pain in many different ways. First of all, studies have shown that CBD can temporarily stop the absorption of anandamide, a chemical that helps suppress pain signals in the brain. This temporary increase in anandamide can have different effects, one of which is to reduce pain.

2. Anticonvulsant action

Perhaps one of CBD's best-known medical applications is its ability to control seizures, tremors, tics and cramps. This is because CBD is a natural anticonvulsant. The first information about the beneficial effects of CBD on seizures caused by e.g. epilepsy appeared in 2013, Unfortunately, the mechanisms of CBD action as an anticonvulsant are not yet fully understood. Seizures are thought to be caused by rapid, uncontrolled stimulation of neurons in the brain. Preliminary research suggests that CBD can help restore neuronal stability, which essentially prevents seizures.

3.Supporting cancer therapy

CBD can slow tumor growth. Tumors and malignancies are common in pets and unfortunately in many cases prove fatal. To date, there is no known cure for cancer, and treatment usually focuses on slowing tumor growth while reducing pain and other symptoms. The most common treatment for cancer and cancer in pets is chemotherapy. Unfortunately, as in humans, chemotherapy can cause many different side effects, including:

• Tiredness, fatigue and lethargy

• Loss of appetite

• vomiting

• diarrhea

However, new research shows that cannabinoids such as CBD can also have a unique anti-cancer effect. In fact, the world of science and medicine is beginning to conduct more and more research and observation on how cannabinoids can slow the growth and spread of cancer and even reduce the size of tumors. For example, a 2011 study at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston showed that CBD can cause programmed cell death and thus inhibit the development of breast cancer. Another study, published by researchers from the University of Naples Federico II in Italy, also showed that CBD can help protect against colon cancer in rats by stopping development, growth and spread malignant tumors. Studies at the University of Complutense in Madrid have also shown that CBD and other cannabinoids may increase the effects of traditional chemotherapy. Researchers suggest that it does this by increasing the rate at which cancer cells absorb chemotherapeutic agents while protecting healthy cells.

4.Anxiolytic and anti-stress effect

It should be noted that CBD not only helps to cope with physical symptoms, many studies have shown that CBD can help cope with the symptoms of various mental states, including anxiety. Animals, like humans, can suffer from anxiety, stress and even specific phobias. And although the exact source of anxiety may vary in pets, it can cause stress and specific physical responses just like humans. Some common forms of anxiety affecting dogs are: separation anxiety, fear of noise, fear of travel. In people, anxiety and stress can cause us to bite our nails, we have various tics, etc. In dogs, anxiety can cause similar repetitive behavior.

Some common symptoms of anxiety in dogs:

• persistent barking

• Chewing (furniture, shoes, rubbish etc.)

• Urination and defecation (usually at home or in a kennel cage)

• Aggression or self-aggression

• Trembling and / or drooling

CBD has been shown to help reduce anxiety and thus reduce these symptoms. However, how it does it is not entirely clear. Typical anxiolytic drugs tend to target a type of seratonin receptor in the body known as 5-HT1A. By targeting these receptors, anxiolytics can help temporarily increase brain serotonin levels. This can then lead to a better mood and temporarily reduce feelings of anxiety or fear. Research suggests that CBD may work in a similar way, temporarily increasing the level of serotonin in the brain. In doing so, the compound can act as anxiolytic and antidepressant, while helping to reduce stress.

5.Anti-inflammatory effect

CBD is famous for its anti-inflammatory effect. In fact, the anti-inflammatory effect of CBD is believed to be one of the main reasons why the compound is so useful in the treatment of many different diseases. CBD's anti-inflammatory effect is thought to be associated with its ability to interact with receptors in immune cells. CBD interacts with CB2 receptors, which are usually found in immune cells. By activating these receptors, CBD is able to trigger a wide range of immune responses. One of these answers is the fight against inflammation. In some cases, it can be caused by a malfunction of the immune system, causing an attack on healthy cells. By helping reduce inflammation, CBD can help reduce pain and other symptoms of diseases such as arthritis, atopic dermatitis, etc.

6.Antiemetic effect, improving appetite

Nausea and vomiting are really common ailments occurring as an independent illness or symptom accompanying other diseases or a treatment process such as chemotherapy. In both humans and pets, nausea and vomiting are serious symptoms, often leading to decreased appetite, rapid weight loss, dehydration and fatigue. There are many anti-emetic drugs on the market, and some of the most common ones given to dogs and cats include acepromazine, chlorpromazine, and aminopentamide. These drugs, although often effective in combating nausea and vomiting, can cause many different side effects, including:

• Hypotension

• Strong sedation

• Reduced seizure thresholds in epileptic animals

• Excessive salivation

• Lethargy

• Lack of appetite

• diarrhea

CBD has been proven to be an effective anti-emetic, controlling nausea and vomiting, while stimulating appetite. Interestingly, this seems to be done by stimulating 5-HT1A receptors, the same receptor that can help reduce anxiety. By activating this receptor, CBD can significantly reduce the feeling of nausea and also suppress the gag reflex. Research also suggests that prolonged stimulation of the CB1 cannabinoid receptor in the brain may also help reduce nausea and vomiting. In this way, studies show that CBD can have a strong anti-emetic effect. In fact, some studies suggest that CBD is a better anti-emetic than some modern drugs. Best of all, CBD doesn't seem to cause any side effects of traditional anti-emetic drugs.

7.Has a positive effect on the body's balance.

CBD oil can also be given to healthy animals as a regular supplement to a healthy and varied diet. As the latest research shows, by participating in many processes of the body's functioning, it helps maintain a healthy balance and its use contributes to the improvement of the animal's health, general well-being and vitality.
