Understanding CBD

Before we start exploring the individual benefits of CBD, it’s important to cover some basics about this compound first. To start CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound made mainly from Industrial Hemp plants.

What makes CBD unique is that it won’t get your pet “high and is nontoxic or addictive. If you want to learn more about how safe CBD is for both Humans and pets you can see our blog on “Is CBD Safe” https://www.hempheros.ie/is-cbd-safe/

Why CBD works for pets

The way that CBD works is very simple, every mammal which includes humans, cats and dogs have a thing called an endocannabinoid system known as your ESC for short. It is for this reason why CBD works on both humans and pets.
The Endocannabinoid system is made up of two types of receptors CB1 and CB2 which are can be found in the Brain, major organs and immune system.

The endocannabinoid system is a critical system that the body uses to maintain homeostatic essential balance. Studies on the Endocannabinoid system have shown it helps to regulate physiological and cognitive processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood, memory and sleep.
