Hemp Use in Joint Pain and Stiffness for Older Dogs

Your dog is getting older, and naturally, slower. Does she show signs of hip and joint pain? A poor diet, lack of exercise, and even arthritis could be the cause. For more serious conditions please consult your veterinarian.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids can help with hip and joint conditions in some dogs. Hemp oil contains the perfect ratio of these fatty acids and can even boost your dog’s immunity. Cannabinoids, found within Hemp Well products interact with your pets endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids are the only compound in nature to replenish this necessary system found in animals and humans. All mammals to be exact.

  • A study published in the Free radical biology & medicine journal by US researcher G.W. Booz from the University of Mississippi Medical Center showed that cannabidiol can be helpful in lessening the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress, decreasing the risk of organ damage and dysfunction. Oxidative stress and inflammation contribute to a number of diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type 1 and 2, atherosclerosis, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease or depression.
  • Scientists from the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda (US) showed that cannabinoids can suppress inflammatory and neuropathic pain without causing analgesic tolerance.
  • Cannabinoids suppress inflammatory response and attenuate disease symptoms by inducing apoptosis in activated immune cells, suppressing cytokines and chemokines at inflammatory sites and upregulating FoxP3+ regulatory T cells.
