Just like humans, animals also have cannabinoid receptors primarily in the brain and central nervous system, making up what is called the endocannabinoid system. For mammals, this system partially controls inflammation, pain, motor control, skin condition, appetite, aggression, anxiety and neurological disorders. CBD is an agonist, weakly binding to endocannabinoid receptors, causing a long-lasting response with non-intoxicating effects.
THC on the other hand, can be poisonous to pets. It is therefore important to select a CBD product that is “non-psychoactive”. Please consult with your veterinarian prior to giving your pet CBD.
