The Endocannabinoid System and CBD Oil

The Endocannabinoid system (EC system) is something not only our dogs have but we have as well. This means CBD oil works the same in both of us as far as science goes. That doesn’t mean there are the same effects, and it doesn’t guarantee if it helps your dog with anxiety, it will help you. Every unique body reacts differently. 

We aren’t getting overly scientific in this blog post, but we thought you may want to understand how CBD works in your dog (or cat’s) body. 

The Endocannibinoid System

CBD interacts with EC system. Why’s that grand? The EC system is responsible for many different functions in the body including:

  • Balance 
  • Coordination
  • Muscle movement
  • Reproductive system
  • Appetite
  • Digestive tract
  • Memory
  • Heart rate 
  • Blood pressure
  • Pain
  • Mood regulation and stability
  • Brain Development
  • Internal clock

The EC system gets kicked into gear better than ever when cannabinoids enter the body (ex. CBD oil).

Additional Research on the Endocannabinoid System

From this point forward, it becomes significantly more scientific. We won’t go any further here. If you are interested in getting more in depth with the science of the endocannabinoid system and how it works with CBD oil, we highly encourage additional research.
