How CBD Can Help Your Pet Through Winter
During the winter system, the immune system is vulnerable. CBD can help fight back. The cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the central, peripheral nervous system and endocannabinoid system reacts with CBD by improving your pet’s immune system by reducing the body’s inflammatory immune response.
When trying to understand how CBD can help prevent sicknesses, it is important to know that the endocannabinoid system extends to many parts of the body. All mammals have cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as parts of the digestive and immune systems.
When our pets consume CBD, the compound directly interacts with these receptors. During this process, the CBD stimulates the systems affected, including the immune system. This improves the body’s immunity among others, helping fight off illnesses such as coughs, colds, and influenza.
The dry, cold winter air depletes skin from moisture. This can cause cracking and even bleeding in your pet’s paw pads and nose. CBD has shown to relieve your dry, scaly winter skin. Along with moisturizing, CBD can possibly help with excessive sebum production.
You can find relief for your pet’s dry skin through topically applying Suzie’s CBD Salve and reduce sebum production with any of Suzie’s edible products.
The cold temperatures can restrict blood flow causing stiff and sore muscles. This is even more pronounced when performing physical activities outdoors. CBD can possibly help reduce muscle soreness.
Winter allergies can affect your pet’s coat, breathing, and skin. These allergens can be airborne or the product of more time indoors during the colder months.
Seasonal allergies cause inflammation in the throat and sinuses, making it difficult to eat or drink without irritation. CBD oil’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties can reduce these symptoms and relieve associated pain.
CBD also has antimicrobial properties that can help ease the effects of seasonal allergies. CBD oil can open sinuses and relieve pressure in the nasal cavities as well as guard against nasal congestion.
