Pet products formulated with Cannabidiol (CBD) help dogs and cats by stimulating activity in both CB1 and CB2 receptors by triggering the release of natural endocannabinoids throughout the body. CBD is a cannabis plant extract, but it is not “pot” for pets. Read this article to learn more.
Is CBD Pot for Pets?
No. As Cannabidiol (CBD) becomes more widely recognized as a supplement to help humans and pets with a variety of issues, you may have read news stories proclaiming that CBD is “pot for pets.” This is simply not the case. CBD is a cannabis hemp plant extract associated with pain and inflammation relief. “Pot” is the psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cannabis plant extract, which is toxic for pets. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. Your pet will not get high from CBD products.
What’s the Difference Between CBD and THC?
CBD products are formulated using whole plant hemp with naturally occurring CBD and with little to no THC — the ingredient that gets you high. THC is found in the leaves of marijuana plants and is the psychoactive substance that produces the “high” feeling.
How Does CBD Work in Pets?
CBD works in your pet’s body through interaction with its endocannabinoid system (ECS). The system is a network of cellular receptors and activators that help regulate body functions such as mood, pain, appetite, inflammation and stress levels. Shortly after consumption, CBD activates the ECS receptors to restore balance in the body and helps regulate body temperature, reduce pain and inflammation, and increase dopamine secretion, which produces antidepressant effects.
