Frequently Asked Questions About Pet CBD
- What Is CBD?
CBD helps dogs and cats by interacting with neural networks.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound from the cannabis plant. It's a naturally occurring substance that's used in products like oils and edibles. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it's not psychoactive. CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant. There are different ways to extract oil from the plant, some of which remove all the THC content. THC is the substance in marijuana that brings the feeling of “high.”
- How Does CBD Affect Dogs?
CBD helps dogs by interacting with the Endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS helps maintain balance in the body and keep it in a normal healthy state.
- Does CBD get my dog high?
This is one of the most imporant questions about pet CBD. The answer is no!
The great thing about CBD is that is a unique compound meaning there is nothing else in it. CBD contains less than .03% THC which is the compound found in medical marijuana that gives you the psychoactive effects. CBD extracted from the hemp plant will always have these trace amounts of THC but because they are so little it has no harmful effects for your dog.
- What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
Many questions about pet CBD lead back to the Endocannabinoid System.
All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that helps the body maintain a healthy biological balance. This means our bodies, as well as our pets, are producing cannabinoids on its own. Mother Nature in her infinite wisdom created a plant with an abundance of these same compounds that we can extract from our Organic Hemp. This system acts on many peripheral systems within the body that regulates mood, appetite, pain management, digestion, and much more in the area of research is on the horizon for it’s chemical function in the body.
CBD helps dogs by interacting with the ECS and making up for cannabinoid deficiencies.

The cannabis plant contains hundreds of different phytochemicals including cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds. Trying to keep track of them all can lead to many questions about pet CBD!
Full spectrum CBD or hemp oil generally refers to products that not only contain CBD but contain the other plant molecules as well. This version of CBD oil is minimally refined, leaving most of the cannabinoids and terpenes intact and in the oil.
Full spectrum, sometimes also called “whole plant,” means the full plant extract is included. Full spectrum provides more of the plant’s molecules in ratios and amounts that nature intended.

This is one of the most common questions about pet CBD. Amazingly, are many ways that CBD can help your pet:
Panting, pacing, whimpering, hiding, sudden bouts of aggression, trembling, loss of appetite, trouble sleeping, accidents in the home despite training.
Scientists discovered CBD can moderate the impulses which increase excitement and tension in animals. It also boosts serotonin, resulting in a calming effect.
Stiffness in the joints, swelling, redness of the skin, chronic pain.
CBD interacts with the receptors responsible for inflammation and reduces their effectiveness in order to treat inflammation. It once again alleviates pain.
Pain is caused by many different things but often means your dog is struggling to do basic activities like running, walking, climbing stairs or playing.
Scientific and veterinary studies show CBD enhances the signaling of the neurotransmitter anandamide. Anandamide has been shown to reduce pain in both humans and animals.
