If your furry companion struggles with sleep issues, the hemp plant can offer a natural solution for improved rest. Hemp contains various compounds that have been explored for their potential benefits in promoting better sleep patterns in pets. These compounds interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system and are reported to contribute to a calmer state, helping our beloved companions find the rest they need.
By incorporating hemp-based products into their routine, pet owners may provide their furry friends with a potential means to enhance their sleep quality, as well as reduce anxiety. This study assessed the effects of hemp-derived cannabinoids on sleep and anxiety. “Sleep scores improved within the first month in 48 patients (66.7%), but then fluctuated over time… In this evaluation, CBD appears to be better tolerated than routine psychiatric medications.”
This paper outlines in what ways “recent work has demonstrated that the ECS [endocannabinoid system] is involved in the regulation of the circadian sleep–wake cycle, including the maintenance and promotion of sleep.
Hemp is in the early stages of being studied for its effectiveness in sleep— with especially promising results regarding total sleep time. It’s important to consult with a veterinarian before introducing any new treatments. They can guide the suitable use and dosage of hemp-based remedies, ensuring the well-being and safety of your pet.
By embracing the potential benefits of hemp and working closely with professionals, we can support our pets in achieving more restful nights and overall improved well-being.
