CBD for Pets. What is it and how does it work?
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of more than 113 identified compounds, or phytocannabinoids, naturally found in Cannabis, a plant with a history of medicinal, therapeutic and industrial benefits and applications dating back thousands of years. Will it get my pet high? CBD is not intoxicating! All of our CBD products are made with hemp derived CBD isolate, which simply put is cannabidiol (CBD) in its purest form. Although very closely related to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another commonly studied compound in Cannabis plants, CBD does not have the same psychoactive effects and therefore does not have an associated ‘high’ which THC is famously known for. Using pure hemp CBD isolate, we are not only able to guarantee accurate dosing but also that our product contains absolutely zero THC.
How does CBD work?
Your Little Buddy’s body, like yours, consists of a regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system. It is made up of CB1 and CB2 receptors located all throughout the body including brain, central nervous system, immune system and other peripheral organs and tissue. The compounds in the body that interact with these receptors are called endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) and are named as such because of their similarity to the compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds work with these receptors to play a crucial role in regulating processes that affect everyday experiences, things like sleep, mood, hunger, stress, energy, metabolism, immune system activity, blood pressure, and anti-inflammatory responses to name a few. Science has shown that in nearly all pathological conditions, that endocannabinoid/regulatory systems are not functioning properly and are either chronically deficient or are overactive. So with that being said, a regular supplementation of CBD can help bring balance back to these regulatory systems, which will not only improve these daily functions and experiences but could also potentially slow and stop disease progression!
