How Does CBD Work?

CBD works through many pathways in the body, one being The Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Found in all mammals, including house pets such as dogs and cats, the ECS is made up of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, known as CB1 & CB2, as well as enzymes and endocannabinoids ( Anandamide & 2- AG). Endocannabinoids are produced in the body on demand that bind to cannabinoid receptors to regulate many bodily functions such as mood, appetite, pain, immune response and more. Research has shown that CBD works by preventing endocannabinoids from being broken down, in turn increasing the levels of these compounds in the body. By slowing down the breakdown of endocannabinoids, this helps the body maintain balance, this is also known as homeostasis. Research has also shown that CBD also interacts with receptors outside of the ECS, such as Serotonin and Vanilloid.

Neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, transmit chemical messages in the brains and bodies of dogs and humans and as a result both have the same physiological reactions to behavioral states such as joy, fear, excitement and pain

There hasn't been a direct study on CBD for pets with anxiety but there is a lot of anecdotal evidence from pet owners to support it. Also, studies on humans with anxiety has shown that CBD stimulates 5-HT1A, a serotonin receptor that gives an anti-anxiety effect - this is how CBD works to reduce anxiety. Since dogs and cats have Serotonin receptors in their physiology and produce serotonin naturally, CBD could be a potential benefit to decreasing your pets anxiety and regulating their serotonin levels.
