Let me begin by telling you that no rigorous FDA scientific study has been done to prove any claims that hemp oil and it’s cannabinoids can diagnosis, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent any disease.
With that said, what we do know is that hemp oil is high in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. About 80% of its oils are made up of these omegas. While important for quality of life, interestingly, the omegas 3 and 6 are not made by the animal body so they must be acquired through an outside source.
Symptoms from omega-3 and omega-6 deficiencies may include:
unhealthy skin, fur/feathers, claws
depression, anxiety, irritability
lack of energy, fatigue, poor sleeping habits
weight gain, obesity
We also know that animal cells (all animals except insects) have cannabinoid receptors that, obviously, make use of cannabinoids. Although, unlike the omegas 3 and 6 that need to be acquired from an outside source, the animal body makes its own cannabinoids. The brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune system all have cannabinoid receptors. These cannabinoids perform a different task(s) within each body system within your pet. A deficiency in your pet’s ability in producing its own cannabinoids is the issue.
Results from a cannabinoid deficiency may include:
stress, depression, and anxiety from everyday activities
seizures and muscle spasms
lack of an appetite, poor digestion, diarrhea
poor sleeping habits, fatigue
growth and death rates of cells
Cannabinoid products may help provide cell maintenance and replenishment support to your pet in case there is a deficiency in your pet’s cannabinoid production. The hemp plant has 113 known cannabinoids.
Both the Omegas (3 and 6) and the cannabinoids are utilized at the cell level; cells make tissues, tissues make systems. Some of the symptoms of an improperly working system might include aches and discomfort, low immune strength, unhealthy skin, or even stress. Through the process of improving cell performance, through simple cell replenishment and maintenance, a pet may have a better functioning system and better health.
Cells are called the building blocks of life. Everything happens at the cell level: everything begins at the cell level. A pet’s body can be made up of hundreds of billions or even trillions of cells. Cells are little chemical-reaction machines made possible by enzymes within the cell. Enzymes are kind of like a chemical slurry. The role of enzymes is to make each of those chemical reactions inside the cell synthesize properly and very quickly. Obviously, those chemical reactions concern the health of your pet. The omegas and cannabinoids are in that slurry, or at least they should be in that slurry.
The omegas and cannabinoids are basic to your pet’s health. Ask your veterinarian, family or friends, or check it out for yourself.
