Like humans and dogs, the feline anatomy is equipped with an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Because of this, cats can experience a variety of health benefits from cannabinoids like Cannabidiol (CBD).
The ECS is a network of receptors found throughout the central nervous system and other biological systems that can interact with cannabinoids like CBD.By influencing these receptors with its anti-inflammatory and antipsychotic properties, studies have shown that CBD can help maintain and improve their functionality, thereby improving the integrity of the systems they regulate.
This interaction is what allows CBD to deliver numerous benefits to cats, such as pain relief, stress management, reduced aggression and more. It was previously believed that dogs had a higher chance of experiencing arthritis.However, recent studies have shown that cats get arthritis just as frequently as dogs, with higher chances in older cats.
This can lead to decreased mobility, constant pain, lack of energy, and all sorts of other symptoms that can make life unpleasant. While age is inevitable, CBD may help improve the situation. Packed with powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD may help reduce inflammation, while mitigating the spread of further inflammation. In addition, researchers have found that CBD may decrease the perceived level of pain by activating and desensitizing the brain’s vanilloid receptor. Like us,cats can experience stress and anxiety at varying levels along with many of the same unpleasant symptoms we experience.
Common stressors for cats include changes to their environment, conflicts with other cats, poor human-cat relationships, and health problems. Prolonged stress can lead to declined health, poor grooming habits, behavioral issues, poor eating habits, and many other issues.
Studies have shown that CBD may help alleviate stress and anxiety by moderating cortisol (the stress hormone) and influencing receptors in the brain responsible for mood regulation and moderating neurological activity. By doing so, CBD has shown to help reduce stress levels while improving how the brain responds to stress signals.A regular eating habit is also important for cat health.
A decreased appetite in cats can be caused by a variety of different things, including dental problems, mood-related disorders, and numerous health conditions. While the issue may vary, CBD may help stimulate your cat’s appetite and can provide relief for some of the possible issues.
Poor attitude can be a serious problem caused by low levels of energy, unbalanced hormones, or other deeper issues. By alleviating issues that are possibly at the root of the problem CBD may help improve your cat’s mood-related disorders. In addition, CBD can work synergistically to maintain homeostasis (balance) in the body by interacting with receptors in the brain that are responsible for regulating mood levels and moderating hormone production. With the ability to provide natural relief for numerous conditions, CBD may improve your cat’s overall quality of life and keep them healthier longer.
