You and your pets have plenty of things in common. Just like human beings, mammals are also equipped with an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Every single mammal on Earth has receptors for cannabinoids. These are the same chemical compounds that are present in hemp.
When these chemical compounds interact with ECS, they help in governing the body’s memory, mood, appetite, and sleep. ECS and cannabinoids dictate how our bodies fight inflammation (a culprit that is associated with many diseases).
Moreover, CBD also plays a crucial role in facilitating two-way communication among different systems in the body. In the next section of this article, we will take a look at some of the amazing benefits of CBD oil that your pets can get.
The nutritional profile of CBD oil is perfect. Unlike fish oil, CBD oil has a perfect ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. The fatty acids that are found in CBD oil are not naturally produced by the body. So, it is important for your pets to get it from foods.

- CBD is a powerful painkiller
- CBD is a known natural anticonvulsant
- CBD is anti-inflammatory
