Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 66 chemical compounds unique to the cannabis sativa or hemp plant. These compounds are referred to as cannabinoids. You likely have heard of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid most commonly associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD has been shown to offer a number of benefits without the “high” effect of THC. Research and experiential evidence shows that CBD may be helpful in promoting calm, addressing soreness, and supporting the immune system, among other useful applications. Adding to these benefits, CBD is non-psychoactive, non-habit-forming, and well tolerated, making it a desirable supplement choice.
Cannabinoids are naturally effective in our bodies, because throughout our evolutionary development, we have been hardwired to gain the benefits of the cannabis sativa plant through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a complex signaling network within the mammalian body that functions as a lock and key mechanism when cannabinoids are introduced into the bloodstream. These receptors are present throughout the body, and are the reason why cannabinoids can have such diverse and profound effects. All mammals, including humans, horses and companion animals (dogs and cats) have an endocannabinoid system. CBD and related plant cannabinoids are the only compounds found in the natural world that work with mammalian cannabinoid receptors.
With the recent research, development, and experience surrounding the cannabis sativa plant and its benefits, CBD has made a name for itself as a natural means of supporting the immune, musculoskeletal, digestive, and nervous systems.
We encourage you to investigate and discover more about the potential benefits of CBD. New studies and reports continue to emerge every day exploring CBD and the promising role it plays in the wellness of all mammals.
