The Endocannabinoid System And The Animal Kingdom
One of the most illuminating facts showing the vast potential of cannabinoid-based supplements is that virtually all animals have been found to have endocannabinoid systems – the system of cannabinoid receptors and neurotransmitters that regulate profound functions in the brain and body.
What’s more, early research has shown that many mammals, like dogs, actually have far greater endocannabinoid receptors in their central nervous system than humans. The endocannabinoid system’s key role in regulating mental function, inflammation, the immune system, and the musculoskeletal system (among others) is what makes it such a profound therapeutic target for cannabinoid supplements like CBD.
Everything you need to know, from one of the country’s leading veterinarians
Research shows CBD to be very safe in humans and pets alike. But be aware — since dogs and cats are highly sensitive to cannabinoids, it’s important to only give them CBD supplements that have a “THC-free” guarantee, as this psychoactive cannabinoid can produce unwanted adverse effects.
Whether you already use CBD with your pets, or you’re curious and have questions about getting started, Dr. Lippmann has some helpful guidance for all pet lovers.
