CBD For Maintaining Homeostasis In Aging Pets
Homeostasis is our pet’s most balanced, inner physiological state. It’s when their bodily systems & organs are functioning and communicating efficiently. It maintains body stability in internal and external environments. This means it helps organ function, monitors changes within internal systems, and restores balance when needed.
Homeostasis is a state of equilibrium maintained by the body’s ECS. It is how our pets grow and live, helping avoid what negatively impacts their immune health.
Cannabinoids play important roles in maintaining this equilibrium. When the body needs internal balance, it creates its own cannabinoids. These cannabinoids communicate between cells, helping support healthy bodily function. Our pet’s body naturally produces endo-cannabinoids, while plants (like hemp) contain phyto-cannabinoids.
The ECS is composed of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, bones, bodily systems, and major organs. Endo-cannabinoids, phyto-cannabinoids (like CBD), and other hemp plant compounds interact with these receptors.
Many animals and people struggle producing their own endo-cannabinoids as they age. When a body doesn’t make enough endo-cannabinoids, this can cause mobility issues, painful symptoms, health conditions, chronic illness, and more. When a pet experiences endocannabinoid deficiency, parents often supplement with phyto-cannabinoids (CBD, CBN, CBG, etc). Endocannabinoid deficiency is one of many things that can disrupt homeostasis.
CBD & hemp can improve homeostasis in aging pets by helping their body communicate vital messages and encouraging proper organ function. A balanced homeostasis supports healthy mobility in all pets.
This means being proactive by giving our pet CBD daily can also help prevent mobility issues and other health problems.
