CBD for Dog Stress and Anxiety
Oftentimes, with extreme pet anxiety, pet parents may turn to anxiety relieving medications for their pets. Many medications may temporarily relieve the stress and anxiety symptoms, but in turn cause damages to the organs and other bodily functions. At Penelope’s Bloom we do not think you have to choose between making your pets happy while causing irreversible damages to their little bodies. We believe in taking a natural homeopathic holistic approach to your pet’s wellness starts with our best CBD Oil. CBD works by interacting with the body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body. Within the brain, CBD can mimic serotonin by binding and activating your body’s 5-HT1A serotonin receptors. Often called the ‘happy’ chemical, these serotonin receptors are responsible for emotional balance. Not all CBD oil is created equally! At Penelope’s Bloom we harvest organic pesticide, solvent and metal free hemp. Our CO2 Extraction method provides the safest and cleanest method of extracting the hemp from the plant. Your pet’s safety and health is our number one priority. We provide a certificate of analysis for every product that is tested by an independent third party lab.
