Does My Pet Need CBD?

Definitely YES! It is probably better to ask if your pet will benefit from CBD. It has been proven over and over again that a regular health regimen which includes CBD as part its foundation certainly can improve one's lifestyle, sense of well-being, and the health of ours pets.

 

Research shows that pets like all mammals have an Endo-cannabinoid System (ECS) which produce the body’s own Endo-cannabinoid compounds, which science now knows play an integral role in maintaining the body’s homeostasis, meaning the ability of the body to function within safe limits.

 

This system works with a network of receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the central and peripheral nervous systems. At the cellular level, it is hugely responsible for regulating balances in the body’s immune response, appetite, gut metabolism, memory functions and more.

  • CB1 receptors exist mainly in the brain and central nervous system. They impact areas such as appetite regulation, memory, emotions, and feelings of pain.

  • CB2 receptors are concentrated in the gastrointestinal tract and peripheral nervous system (nerve cells outside the brain and spinal cord) and modulate immune cell functions. When activated, they help reduce inflammation.

Endogenous cannabinoids are produced when the body signals that they are required, but are quickly degraded. Offering CBD (exogenous cannabinoid) allows the ECS to work harder and be more productive.
