Dogs and CBD Oil – Why Hemp Oil Might be Good for Your Dog

How careful are you about the nutrients and chemicals you put in your body? How about your dog’s?

You and your dog may have more in common than you realize. Like you, your dog has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Every mammal, in fact, has receptors in its body for cannabinoids —  chemical compounds that are found in hemp. When they interact with the ECS, these non-psychoactive compounds help govern the body’s appetite, sleep, mood and memory. This is why dogs and CBD oil are a good match.

Even more, the ECS and cannabinoids are involved in how we fight inflammation. CBD also facilitates two-way communication among the systems in your body. Prior to the discovery of the ECS in the 1990s, scientists didn’t believe that this type of communication was even possible. Today they believe it may be the key that enables the ECS to keep the body in a balanced state of homeostasis.

Good Health for Your Dog

You can see why supplementation with CBD can be such a healthful advantage. It's not about getting high, it's about maintaining good health, for your dog as well as for you. That’s why Elixinol carries the complete line of Pet Releaf Edibites, powered by pure, organic, hemp-derived CBD.
