When our pets are faced with health challenges, we are concerned about the best possible medication to turn to. Many times, the medications make them feel better for only a moment after which the impediment returns and the available remedies that can produce long lasting effects have numerous side effects. Following the turn to herbs, for solutions to pet health issues CBD oil have proven to be a rallying point for pet owners.
Cannabidiol , CBD oil is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and marijuana plants. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive compound in marijuana, CBD is completely non psychoactive and safe to be used on pets, this means it won’t get your puppy “high”. CBD active found in cannabis pet supplements contain low concentration of THC and is generally non-toxic, incapable of over dosage. CBD is responsible for the pain relieving sensation users feel on using the cannabis plant.
The effect of CBD in the body is through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is present in all mammals and is involved in the control of many biological processes. It posseses two receptors (CB1 and CB2) built to interact with endocannaboids, naturally produced by brain and also with plant derived cannabinoids.
