CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid has become a quickly emerging topic in the healthcare industry over the past couple of years. More recently. CBD is being sought after by animal-owners seeking relief  for their furry loved ones, when conventional options have failed. 

Any animal with a backbone (classified as chordate) has an endocannabinoid system. The Kingdom of Chordata includes amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish, and mammals, including house pets.The ECS consists of endogenous cannabinoids that they naturally produce, as well as receptors called CB1 and CB2 that bind with cannabinoids, such as CBD to promote balance at a cellular level. Pre-clinical studies have shown us the potential that CBD can have as an alternative medicine for many living beings, not just humans. For those of us lucky enough to have heard of CBD and used it on their pets for a host of issues, including pain and inflammation to anxiety and PTDS know the promise of cannabidiol as an answer to these issues.

The Endocannabinoid System is responsible for maintaining homeostasis. Homeostasis can best be described as the proper functioning of the body. It occurs when our bodies are in balance, and ensures all our biological systems function to the best of their ability.

However, sometimes this balance gets thrown out, and that’s when disease and illness strike.

New research suggests that the endocannabinoid system plays a key role in maintaining this balance, mainly because it is involved in such a wide variety of bodily processes.
