What is CBD in a Nutshell?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol. It is extracted from hemp plants or marijuana plants. Hemp plants naturally contain higher amounts of the CBD compound. Hemp naturally contains lower levels of THC compared to marijuana plants. CBD legally must contain no more than 0.3% THC. Its many health benefits and recent discoveries have helped scientests better-undestand the anatomy of all mammals.
Dogs, just like humans, have an endocannabinoid system which exists naturally within the body. The endocannabinoid system is composed of endocannabinoids, which when stimulated by CBD, promotes homeostasis within the body. By promoting homeostasis within the body, it keeps the internal processes optimal and stable which helps keep us, as well as our pets, healthy. CBD has been studied to show the benefits it has on our pet’s health and well-being in relation to this complex, naturally occurring system.
