CBD and Your Pets
While the 4th of July is a celebration for us - BBQs, fireworks, and fun with family and friends - it can be a traumatic night for our animal friends. The loud noises and irresponsible handling of fireworks and firecrackers can be dangerous and leave lasting effects on their well-being.
Here at Healthy Roots we know how important your furry friends are to you. Our pets are members of our family, and deserve the same love and care, which is why we developed our pet line of tinctures and treats. While the scientific research is still in the early stages, CBD and the other minor cannabinoids found in hemp have the potential to be beneficial for animals in many of the same ways it is beneficial for us humans.
Why are cannabinoids beneficial for animals?
Animals, just like humans, have an endocannabinoid system. Similar to the effects cannabinoids have on the human body, CBD and other cannabinoids interact with your pet’s endocannabinoid system, helping to modulate bodily functions to keep them in homeostasis (a healthy, balanced, natural state).
How are they beneficial for animals?
There are many ways cannabinoids potentially benefit our furry friends, including:
- May help reduce stress
- May help relieve stiff joints and sore muscles
- May reduce seizures
- Can promote a healthy digestive system
How much do they need?

"My seven year old cat suffers from an overproduction of norepinephrine, which causes him to overproduce adrenaline and causes stress issues. This tincture has made him into a new kitty! He's not only relaxed, he's more affectionate and is eating better!"
"I have been using the horse tincture for the past year and a half on my mare with DSLD. When I first bought my 12 year old APHA a year and a half ago, I noticed her limping after a week of having her at my home. I quickly had my vet come out and he diagnosed her with Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Desmitis. This is where the horses fetlocks (A horse's ankle) begins to sink and is not held as high as it should normally be, making it painful for them to walk. My veterinarian put my mare on Bute, a pain medicine that she was supposed to take daily for the rest of her life, to keep her pain free. We all know pharmaceutical pain meds are not good for our bodies or our organs, especially long term. I was desperate for an alternative. I was so excited when I came across Healthy Roots Equine CBD Tincture and couldn't wait to give it a try. Within a few days of giving my horse this tincture, I noticed a drastic change in her. She was running in the pasture, kicking, bucking and feeling great. She has not limped once since that day a year and a half ago, her and I go on trail rides together and I can see how happy and pain free she is! The vet recommended Bute is in my tack room collecting dust. Thank you Healthy Roots for giving my horse her life back!"
"I want to thank Healthy Roots. My dog Diamond is terrified of fireworks and their CBD dog treats kept her calm all night, even when Fort Vancouver lit of their fireworks show. Highly recommend!"
"I use Healthy Roots tinctures for my 9 year old dog who always has sore hips. He is a much happier dog now. He doesn't growl when you go near his hips and he looks a lot less stiff. It helps with his stress too. We have had a few friends come to our house and comment on how much our dog has chilled out. Definitely worth trying."
"My dog Duke is a 9 year old boxer and he ended having hip problems and wasn’t himself. So I gave him some CBD from Healthy Roots and now he is back to his old self being a happy boxer."
"JoJo Tuppins is a 13 year old pug/beagle mix. A year ago, his mobility skills were beginning to suffer. He moved stiffly and would stumble and fall easily. The vet diagnosed him with arthritis, and JoJo would often whimper and/or pant while shaking uncontrollably due to pain. Not wanting to pump her dog full of pills, JoJo's best friend and mama decided to try CBD drops instead. The difference is remarkable! JoJo gets his CBD drops two times a day, mixed in his breakfast and again in his dinner. He moves easily and without stiffness, is more alert and active, and rarely stumbles. He loves to "trot" again! It is obvious when Joe doesn't get his drops, as his ability to move around is greatly affected and painfully obvious and the shaking from pain returns. That is why his mama never allows their household to run out of his CBD drops! Healthy Roots CBD oil has changed JoJos life by greatly improving his mobility and eliminating his pain, thus extending not only the length of his life, but the quality of it as well.
Seriously people, these CBD drops are incredible. Made specifically for pets!! Healthy Roots puts their heart and soul into it. Seriously worth it and will make both you and your pets so much happier!!! Thank you for reading."
