Hemp (CBD) and your pet
WHAT IS IT?
When thinking about CBD for your dog, you should first understand the difference between marijuana and hemp. Firstly, they both come from the same cannabis sativa plant, however, have different properties and results.
Marijuana – is the buds, leaves, and resin of the cannabis plant and are a high source of a substance called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This what results in a psychoactive effect in humans, or in other terms, getting ‘high.’
Hemp – is the rest of the plant. This part of the plant contains less than 3% of tetrahydrocannabinol but does contain a substance called cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabidiol activated receptor sites in the body’s endocannabinoid system.
CBD hemp oil is not associated with the “high” of marijuana, otherwise known as the THC.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dogs & Cats have an ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS). ECS is a network of - CELLULAR ACTIVATORS AND RECEPTORS -that regulate hundreds of physiological processes inside the body, like, INFLAMMATION, PAIN, ANXIETY AND MUCH MORE!
CBD binds to specific receptors in your pets ESC and regulates whatever is out of balance.
CBD is NOT a psychoactive stimulus, there is no 'buzz' or 'high', but rather provides your pet with a calming feeling and pain-relieving sensations without harming them with potential intoxicating effects.
