Did you know the endocannabinoid system (ECS) exists not only in us humans but also in all mammals, fish and molluscs? This would mean that CBD oil could also have a positive effect on pets such as dogs, cats and horses. However, you should buy weed online only from reputed online Canada dispensary.
How does CBD oil work for animals?
Through various receptors, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) can establish and maintain constant contact with our entire body. Studies and research have shown that there are mainly two different receptors that seem to play an important role in maintaining the body’s balance. These receptors have been called CB1 and CB2 receptors. Researchers believe that these are present throughout our body such as in the brain, nervous system, various organs, glands, digestive organs, skin and tissues. It has also been concluded that our bodies can produce cannabinoids on their own.
An animal has a similar ability as us humans, to be able to produce the body’s own cannabinoids. These play the same important role in the work of maintaining balance in an animal’s body. Adding CBD to the animal could thus provide support to an unbalanced body and have a positive effect on an animal that, for example, suffers from pain or is in stress. CBD has been shown to give good results when cannabis oil is given to dogs, cats and horses as a supplement in addition to normal care. The effectiveness of CBD in animals has been investigated through global clinical trials.

You can also administer hemp seed oil enriched with CBD instead of CBD oil to your pet. This is because hemp seed oil is an oil that is rich in both antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamins E and B.
Vitamin B affects the body’s metabolism, the production of red blood cells and the function of the nervous system. Vitamin E has the ability to affect various processes in the body that have to do with our aging. This is also a vitamin that provides a protective effect against blood clots, leg cramps and angina to name a few. Hemp seed oil also contains important fatty and amino acids as well as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which has a hormone-regulating and anti-inflammatory effect.
CBD oil for pets no miracle cure
Although there are many potential health benefits of CBD, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that CBD oil for animals is not a miracle cure. It should therefore be administered in combination with a balanced diet, lifestyle and animal care.
Side effects of CBD in dogs, cats and horses
CBD for animals has no known side effects. CBD oil for animals is similar to CBD oil for humans which is free of THC. Thus, your dog, cat or horse will not be “high” or drunk from consuming CBD oil.
