CBD's Can Help Treat Our Dogs And Cats
Early research and anecdotal testimonials show that CBD’s has helped our pets in a variety of ways. Here’s a list of conditions that CBD’s has been found to help treat (and/or cure) our dogs and cats:
How Does It Work On My Dog?
The body does create its own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, to help support our regulatory system. This central system helps to keep our bodies balanced day to day, including: appetite, pain sensation, mood, memory, immune system functions, and inflammation control.Similar to how we use vitamin C to kick start our immune system, CBD acts as a kick starter for these cannabinoids to keep the receptors working at optimal capacity and to help the functions of the body’s central regulatory system.
CBDs Don't Get You High!
CBD often gets mixed up with THC, which is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. Yet, it’s important to distinguish them as they have fundamentally different properties and benefits. THC, an intoxicating and illegal substance, is responsible for causing marijuana users to get “high.” Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. Thus, it is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD or CBD oil extracted from industrial hemp plants, as they only have minuscule traces of THC (<0.3%).
Where Does CBD Come From?
CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis. It is the second most abundant compound in cannabis, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts.CBD is a compound that can be found in both psychoactive cannabis (marijuana) and non-psychoactive cannabis (hemp). However, most legal CBD products that you find on the market will be extracts from hemp, as federal law allows for the cultivation, processing and marketing of hemp and hemp products.
