How CBD Works - Understanding the ECS

Understanding your pet’s health involves exploring its endocannabinoid system (ECS), which influences various bodily functions and relies on chemical messengers called endocannabinoids. These messengers affect physical and cognitive processes, as well as immune responses. By understanding the ECS, we can explore how CBD interacts with it and its potential benefits for your pet’s well-being.

Your pet’s natural endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Your pet’s ECS is involved in many body systems, including the heart, stomach, digestion, skin, liver, bones, sleep, and brain functions. Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers known to positively affect your pet’s heart, stomach, digestion, skin, liver, bones, sleep and even cognitive and memory functions in your pet’s brain. They also affect the immune system and reproductive health. Understanding this system’s role can help develop treatments for various pet health issues.

How CBD Works

CBD works directly with the Endocannabinoid System in your pet's brain

These receptor points in your pet’s brain and body interact with endocannabinoids which allow your pet’s brain to send chemical messages to tell your pet’s body to get process moving and when to stop; helping regulate and maintain balance in your pet’s body.

According to scientists, your pet’s body has evolved to require CBD to function at optimal levels. Allowing your pet to build a healthier immune system, combat nervous behavior and possibly help neurologic conditions.

Cannabinoid Receptors

When CB1 and CB2 receptors are activated by CBD, it allows for a two-way communication between your pet’s bodily systems and brain. This two-way communication allows your pet’s body to more effectively communicate with the brain regarding where CBD is most needed in your pet’s body.

Which further support how important CBD is and its ability to help your furry family member live the healthiest life possible.
