CBD for Pets
Just like us, our furry friends have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), a central regulatory system that plays an essential role in establishing and maintaining health.
When the ECS is disrupted things can fall out of balance. Luckily, the cannabinoids found in full-spectrum hemp extract can help regulate the ECS.
How does it work?
Pets have cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body and brain. These receptors work on pain, mood, appetite and inflammation which help restore normal balance and homeostasis. And just as CBD has helped humans, your pets can reap the same health-boosting benefits.
