What is CBD?
Let’s define what CBD is first before we proceed to understanding its benefits. A cannabidiol extracted from a cannabis plant is a CBD. Cannabidiol does not make the pet high. CBD is non-psychoactive in nature and has lower amounts of THC. Also, it has no known toxicity level hence, it cannot overdose.
How can CBD help?
Mammals have an endocannabinoid system which takes care of the different processes in the body like immunity, sleep cycle, memory, and other functions. There are endocannabinoids released by a dog’s brain that interact with the same endocannabinoid system present in dogs. To supplement additional endocannabinoid released by the dog’s brain, it could be introduced externally. This is the reason why CBD is helpful for dogs too and it is safe.
