What is Cannabidiol and the Endocannabinoid System?


What is Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol is a natural constituent in hemp plants.  It is not psychoactive, which means that it does not make you high.  By regulating the productions of signals in your cells, acting as an antioxidant, and activating several different types of receptors in your body, Cannabidiol is able to exert a number of therapeutic effects with NO negative side effects yet discovered.

 Endocannabinoid System

 The endocannabinoid system is the network of receptors that interact with cannabinoids; CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain, and CB2 is located throughout the immune system.  CB1 is actually the most numerous receptor expressed in the human brain, and it is believed that both receptor types serve major roles in homeostasis and biofeedback mechanisms.  Some researchers are finding more and more evidence that points to a hemp-based diet as the catalyst that allowed an endocannabinoid system to flourish in our ancestors tens of thousands of years ago, and therefore be passed down to us. 

 Cannabidiol is the most therapeutically useful of all of the phytocannabinoids.  It has profound value as an anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, anti-insomnia, antidepressant, anxiolytic, antioxidant, neuroprotective, immunostimulant, and anti-spastic.  Cannabidiol operates via several mechanisms of action, but it has little affinity for CB1 or CB2 receptors.  It acts as a negative allosteric modulator on these, but it is an agonist of serotonin 5-HT1a receptors, which mediate fear, mood, and anxiety, and on TRPV-1 vanilloid receptors, which are involved in pain and the inflammatory response.  It is undergoing immense research and is the subject of the esteem of millions of people who have found relief from debilitating conditions that traditional treatments could not provide for decades.

What is a Hemp Terpene?

Terpenes are organic compounds found in a variety of plants, and contribute to their flavor, scent and color.  These substances are the building blocks for essential oils and plant resins, and are often used in food additives, perfumery and aromatherapy.  Terpenes in hemp have anti-flammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, the most known of them being caryophyllene (cytoprotective effects - protecting cells from noxious chemicals or other stimuli) and myrcene (exhibit anti-oxidant properties).   The hemp plant contains 120 terpenes.

How Hemp Can Help Your Dog


Hemp can help with both chronic and acute disease. Among chronic conditions, it can help with arthritis, compromised immune systems, stress responses, aggression and digestive issues. There are also studies under way into CBD’s effects on Type 1 diabetes, organ diseases and cancer.

Veterinarians are also finding hemp terpenes can be useful in treating acute ailments like sprains and strains, torn ligaments, bone breaks and even during post-operative care to reduce swelling, pain and stiffness.  If your dog’s taking conventional drugs for any of these conditions, hemp may make it possible to use lower doses of the drugs to achieve therapeutic effects. Since conventional medicines do have side effects, this is a useful benefit of CBD.

Does It Work Fast?

As with any herbal medicine, for most ailments you may not see an immediate effect. You’ll need to be patient.

Your dog may feel some pain relief in a few hours but other symptoms like inflammation may take a few days to show improvement.


First of all, we use hemp that has no THC. CBD hemp won’t make your dog high.  The most common side effect of CBD is that your dog may get a little drowsy – about the  same as if you gave him a Benadryl.
