Pets, like humans, have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). These systems are comprised of system receptors which are affected by endocannabinoids (eCBs). Research shows that CBD is one of the most promising endocannabinoids that can help regulate or inhibit occurring processes in pets.
Specifically, CBD affects the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the Endocannabinoid System.
CB1 Receptors are located in the Central Nervous System
This includes the brain, lungs, vascular system, muscles, gastrointestinal tract, and reproductive organs. Therefore, CBD can help prevent and treat ailments which arise in these areas, including:
∙ Anxiety ∙ Seizures ∙ Epilepsy ∙ Bowel Disease ∙ Nausea ∙ Cardiovascular Diseases
CB2 Receptors are located in the Peripheral Nervous System
This includes the spleen, bones, skin, immune cells, liver and pancreas. Therefore, CBD can also prevent and treat ailments that arise in these areas, including:
∙ Cancer ∙ Pain ∙ Chronic Inflammation
∙ Loss of Appetite ∙ Nausea ∙ Arthritis
