CBD – Facts that you should know

September 9th, 2018

Both CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) are cannabinoids – parts of a plant called cannabis sativa which is lately in the news’ spotlight. While THC causes much of the euphoria associated with cannabis, CBD is non-intoxicant and contributes to both mental and physical relaxation. This is why so many people are currently looking for CBD products – for pets and for humans – to benefit from its phytonutrients (without getting “high”).

While CBD and THC are phytocannabinoids, the human body produces naturally its own endocannabinoids. Anandamide is one of them and it’s known as “the bliss molecule”. It activates the CB1 receptor. Then, CBD plays and important role in the process of “connecting” with CB1 receptors and enhancing their performance.

As researches find the positive effects of the use of CBD in humans, pets can also receive the same health-boosting benefits. CBD oil for pets reduces anxiety and helps your pet cope with separation issues and noise phobias, treats seizure and epilepsy, reduces chronic pain and, immune diseases, prevents colitis, restores animal gut motility in inflammatory bowel disease and has antibiotic properties.
