CBD-Infused Coconut Oil for Dogs
Did you know that coconut oil combined with CBD is awesome for pets?
The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil for Dogs
We tend to know the health benefits of coconut oil for humans but it’s also amazing for pets.
The fatty acids (MCFA) have anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties. Unlike other saturated fats, lauric acid (found in coconut oil) is sent directly to the liver and broken down immediately rather than stored. When lauric acid is broken down it is converted into monolaurin which is anti inflammatory, anti viral, and anti bacterial.
Thanks to the high concentration of these healthy fats, coconut oil can help boosts your dog’s health, in particular the digestive system as it helps to absorb more nutrients, vitamins and minerals from their food.
Coconut oil also has anti microbial properties which can help protect against bacteria and parasites. Due to the anti inflammatory properties, coconut oil can even help reduce dryness and itching caused by allergies and dermatitis.
So why do we mix the coconut oil and CBD for our pets?
Lucky for dogs they have an endocannabinoid system like humans.
The endocannabinoid system is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral nervous system - Wikipedia
CBD can help activate this system, which has been shown to mediate a wide variety of bodily processes, including:
- Body temperature
- Stress response
- Motor function
- Brain activity
- Cell growth/death
- Immune health
- … and much more.
In fact it has shown that giving dogs CBD supplements can help deal with anxiety, appetite problems, chronic inflammation, chronic inflammation, pain, seizures and much more.
We recommend 300mg coconut oil spray, no flavour. Sprayed onto treats.
