4 Ways That CBD Can Help Pets As Well As People

You may know all about the benefits that CBD can bring to people. It’s been shown to help with numerous health issues. However, it’s not just people that can benefit from using CBD.

Pets can also benefit if their owners use CBD wholesale products to treat various conditions and psychological issues that animals can have. Let’s examine some of the ways that CBD can be helpful to pets.

Reducing stress and anxiety

There can be many times when pets become nervous, such as when there is thunder in the air. It’s not pleasant to see your pet distressed in this way. CBD can help with this.

It can also be used to help if your dog struggles when you are not at home. It can make it easier for them to deal with the issues they have with separation anxiety. This does not just make your dog happier, it can also help to reduce destructive tendencies that result from stress.

Helping with epilepsy

There are several medications available that can help animals that suffer from seizures. However, some of these medications can have harmful side effects. Just like it can in humans, CBD can help deal with seizures in pets.

Relieving chronic pain

CBD has been reported as being successful in helping relieve chronic pain in humans. It can also be useful in helping to treat pets that have pain which is associated with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and issues with nerve pain.

Dealing with loss of appetite

It can be very stressful for you and your pet if they are not eating as they should. CBD can help improve your pet’s appetite, so that they begin to eat a healthy amount of food. It’s also been shown that CBD can help to relieve symptoms in pets that are suffering from nausea or vomiting.

Seeking advice from a vet

If you have a pet that you think could benefit from the use of CBD, you should think about consulting a vet. They can give you advice about how CBD can be integrated into a health care regime for animals. You should do this before taking any action, so that you know whether you are doing the right thing.

In summary

Although CBD was first identified in the 1940s, it’s only recently that research has started to show the benefits it can have for people. Now, it seems that people are not the only ones who can benefit from its use. The benefits can also be useful to pets.

This is why you should think about using CBD if your pet is experiencing certain issues. These issues can include anxiety, loss of appetite and chronic pain. If your pet is affected by any of these problems, you should speak to a vet about using CBD. On its own, or in conjunction with other treatments, it may be what you need to use in order to greatly improve the life of your pet.











Natural Pet Science Launches Pet Treats Made From Hemp And Crickets

CANADA: Premium pet brand Natural Pet Science has launched a line of hemp-based health-conscious pet treats infused with crickets – yes, crickets! – to provide a one-of-a-kind snacking experience for pets. The launch features two of the Vancouver-based brand’s inaugural pet treats: Slim’Dog, a weight control formula for dogs, and Calm’Cat, a calming formula for cats. Both pet treat formulas bolster a rich supply of protein and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids tailored for dogs and cats, thanks to their unique hemp- and cricket-based blends. Mixed with pet-friendly ingredients readily-sourced from Mother Nature, like sweet potatoes, lentils, chickpeas, and coconut meal, these treats are super healthy, yummy, and good for the environment.

So why hemp? Hemp is a “superfood” known to be an excellent non-meat protein source alternative because it’s packed with rich nutrients and minerals essential for a healthy diet, including Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Natural Pet Science incorporates different variations of the hemp plant in its pet treat formulas – all of which boost the nutritional value of every Natural Pet Science treat.

Screenshot 2018-06-29 09.35.34But that’s not the only ‘super ingredient’ in Natural Pet Science treats. The forward-thinking brand incorporates crickets in its recipes to give the treats another nutritional mega-boost. Not only do crickets boast a whopping nine different essential amino acids, but these critters are also very eco-friendly. They produce 80 times less methane than cattle-sourced protein and require 10 times less water for each kilogram of protein they produce. That is a massive reduction in carbon impact, packing in protein with far less harm to Mother Nature.

The sustainability of Natural Pet Science’s ingredients is a conscious choice by the brand as it encourages owners and their pets to live a more natural and healthier lifestyle. Plus, crickets are just fun to eat.

“The idea was to give our beloved family cat, Hammie, the same benefits our human clients have been getting,” Ciska Asriel, co-founder of the brand’s parent company EastWest Science, says. “As animal lovers, we were disappointed by the lack of all-natural plant-based options available in today’s pet treat market, so we set out to produce an alternative for people that is healthy for their pets and healthy for the environment using unique ingredients like hemp and crickets.”


Natural Pet Science’s Slim’Dog is a healthy and tasty option for dog owners worried about their pooch maintaining a stable weight but who still want to shower their pet with yummy treats. The weight control hemp- and cricket-based formula contains natural ingredients that help support weight control and maintain energy levels, providing pets with the health benefits they need to live a healthy and happy life.


Similarly, Natural Pet Science’s Calm’Cat is a scrumptious and safe alternative for cat owners looking to keep their furry friend’s anxiety at bay without using harmful substances. The calming formula extracts proteins, fibers and calming properties from natural sources, like valerian root and chamomile flowers, to keep pets in a happy mood throughout the day. Pet owners can purchase Slim’Dog and Calm’Cat treats through online retailers Well and Amazon and at independent retail stores across Canada.


It doesn’t stop there. Natural Pet Science, the pet-focused arm under premium Canadian health company EastWest Science, will soon release more pet treat formulas boasting equally smart, healthy recipes that are natural and delicious. Future Natural Pet Science pet treats to look out for are Chill’Dog, Play’n Dog, Quick’Cat and Happy’Cat.



Pet Releaf Introduces Two New All-Natural CBD Products for Dogs

COLORADO: Pet Releaf, an all-natural pet products company, is pleased to announce the addition of two new offerings to its existing product lines. Pet Releaf will debut its new CBD Hemp Oil Capsules and Large Breed “Edibites” at booth #4041 at SuperZoo 2016, August 2-4, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Alina Smith, CEO of Pet Releaf, says the new products are a result of increasing customer demand for higher potency products for medium and large breed dogs dealing with more significant health issues.

“Customers have been asking for CBD products that are stronger and for larger breed dogs,” added Smith. “We want to make our CBD Hemp Oil products accessible to all pet parents, and we knew that the best way to accomplish this was by offering our new, higher potency CBD Hemp Oil Capsules and Large Breed Edibites.” The new CBD Hemp Oil Capsules and Large Breed Edibites will join Pet Releaf’s existing line of all-natural CBD products for pets.

Recommended for medium and large breed dogs over 40lbs., Pet Releaf’s new CBD Hemp Oil Capsules offer a hassle-free alternative to administering CBD Hemp Oil. Each bottle is packed with a total of 450mg of CBD, containing 30 capsules with 15mg of CBD per capsule.

Pet Releaf’s new Large Breed Edibites are a great alternative for customers who have larger dogs and wish to limit the number of treats given per day, while maintaining or increasing the amount of CBD for their pets. The Large Breed Edibites will be available in two flavors – Blueberry-Cranberry and Peanut Butter-Banana – and contain a minimum of 3mg of CBD per treat, compared to regular Edibites, which contain 1.5mg of CBD per treat.

Pet Releaf’s mission is to provide the purest, most wholesome products for pet companions – truly healthy products made with honesty and integrity – right here in the US. The company focuses solely on pet products, and creates and makes all of its Edibites in small batches in its certified commercial kitchen, while the organic CBD Hemp Oil Capsules are bottled in a pharmaceutical grade, GMP-certified facility. Pet Releaf uses only human-grade, organic ingredients. All of its products are tested through third-party certified laboratories and never contain anything sourced from China.

One of nature’s best sources of plant-based protein, the hemp plant is quickly starting to be recognized as a “super food,” containing both amino and fatty acids, as well as Super Omegas. The oil used in Pet Releaf’s products is 100 percent organic CBD Hemp Oil from Europe and is made from the WHOLE PLANT (not just hemp seeds which contain no CBD) in order to provide the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids. It is extracted using carbon dioxide under extremely high pressure and very low temperatures. While more costly, this process ensures no chemicals or solvents are used. All Pet Releaf products are legal in all 50 states, do not require a prescription, and are completely safe and non-psychoactive. They also contain NO wheat, corn, soy, or dairy.
