This 4th of July, be prepared for the rockets red glare. Get your pet Grassroots Harvest CBD Pet Oil or CBD Dog Treats, high-quality CBD products designed with your pet in mind. 

For a lot of pets, holidays with fireworks are no cause for celebration. The loud bangs and pops from well-intentioned neighbors send them under the bed or into your arms, where they stay, miserable, until the night’s festivities are over. 

This 4th of July season, get ahead of the game! 

There’s plenty you can do to help make the night easier for your cat or dog, and the number one thing we recommend is CBD- here’s why!

CBD For Anxiety

One of the most popular reasons that people use CBD is to reduce anxiety. There have been quite a few studies released that have found CBD to be effective at reducing anxiety (1, 2, 3, 4, to name a few), and that certainly doesn’t just apply to people! Pets can benefit from CBD, too! And this Fourth of July, your pets may need a whole lot of stress relief. CBD may help.

CBD & The Endocannabinoid System

The leading theory on how CBD reduces anxiety is that it’s due to CBD interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a recently discovered system in the body that’s thought to be responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or the body’s balanced, normal state of existence. When something throws the body out-of-whack and it’s no longer in homeostasis, the endocannabinoid system seems to be at least partially responsible for getting back to that state. 

Stress & anxiety are two things that can cause the body to move out of homeostasis. Since CBD seems capable of reducing anxiety, and we’re fairly certain CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, it would be fair to argue that CBD’s potential ability to reduce anxiety is because it interacts with the endocannabinoid system.  

CBD For Pets

Like we said, pets can benefit from CBD, too! Animals have an endocannabinoid system, too, so they may benefit in just the same way humans do when using CBD for anxiety. That’s why we made a line of CBD products exclusively for pets! 

We carry CBD Pet Oil- a combination of high quality CBD and salmon oil, for a flavored tincture they’ll love! You can add drops to a bowl of food, or place it directly into their mouth for faster absorption- try giving your pet CBD Pet Oil before the fireworks start, and see the difference it makes for them.

We carry CBD Dog Bones- if your pup deserves an extra special treat, we’ve got CBD-infused dog bones to help keep them calm (& feeling spoiled) all night long! With 15mg of CBD per dog bone, it’s never been easier to give your dog the perfect dose of CBD every time. 

With Fourth of July right around the corner, pick up some CBD for pets today, and be prepared ahead of time.
