Curious about how CBD works inside an animal’s body to facilitate rejuvenation and promote optimal health? Here’s the science behind CBD. 



All pets have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is responsible for maintaining normal, healthy functions across an animal’s anatomical systems. 

So the ECS regulates functions of the digestive, muscular, nervous, endocrine, skeletal, reproductive, cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, and urinary systems, as well as an animal’s system of organs. 

That’s a huge responsibility — no wonder it’s so important for the ECS to be functioning properly. 

A depleted or compromised ECS means one thing — negative effects on an animal’s health.


The ECS is comprised of CB1 and CB2 receptors.

CB1 regulates the gastrointestinal tract, appetite, lungs, vascular system, reproductive organs, sleep, pain, mood, cognition, brain and memory. CB2 regulates inflammation, skin, spleen, bone and glial cells. And CB 1 + 2 together regulate the liver, immune system, pancreas, bone marrow, and brainstem. 

When an animal takes CBD, it works by binding to various receptors, thus activating them and generating a variety of therapeutic effects. 

The phytocannabinoids found in hemp products affect the ECS the same way as the endocannabinoids produced naturally by the body can. Supplementation with phytocannabinoids found in CBD oil — such as cannabidiol — can help to make up for endocannabinoid deficiencies. 

Phytocannabinoids also provide health benefits outside of boosting the ECS, by acting as anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, and antibiotics. 

Anti-inflammatory compounds reduce inflammation, which is the most common cause of pain in animals. Antioxidants help to keep the body clear of toxins that can harm cells and potentially contribute to cancer. And antibiotics assist in killing germs and fighting infections.

When the benefits of adding CBD to your pet’s supplementation program are this all-encompassing, the choice to try CBD is an easy one to make!
