The Science Behind Why CBD Hemp Oil is Good for Your Pet
CBD Hemp Oil ensures your pet’s body is working at optimal levels.
How does CBD Hemp Oil work?
CBD Hemp Oil activates the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in mammals. The ECS is involved in almost every system in your pet’s body. – cardiovascular, digestion, relaxation, and even the cognitive and memory functions. The ECS is controlled by receptors, which scientists call the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CBD works directly with the ECS system by “antagonizing” the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are one of the most abundant receptors in the brain and are found in almost every neuron in a mammal’s body. CB2 receptors are found almost exclusively in the immune system.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and related cannabinoids found in the hemp plant are the only compounds in the natural world that work with these receptors. According to scientists, this means that the mammalian body (yes, including all dogs and cats) have evolved to actually require CBD in order to function and work at optimal levels of health.
Another important scientific find is that these receptors when activated by CBD, allow for two-way communication between a mammal’s various body systems. Previously, scientists thought the body’s signals went in one direction only. This two-way communication allows the body to more effectively communicate with the brain regarding where it is needing more support furthering CBDs ability to help your companion live the healthiest life possible.
