CBD or Cannabidiol (can-na-bid-i-ol) is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. With its ever growing media coverage, CBD has become a household name. WIth every passing day, people across the world are discovering its indisputable benefits and have started to adventure in to possibilities of similar options for their pets.
CBD is a cannabinoid just like the popular and well known Tetrayhydrocannabinol (THC). While THC is used for its recreational function, CBD is used for its therapudic properties. Although cannabidiol can be found in the familiar marijuana plant, the CBD compounds used in hemp products are extracted from the hemp plant which does not contain any of the psychoactive or “high” effects that THC does.
More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the marijuana plant. Of these cannabinoids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) have been studied most extensively. In addition to cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are also cannabinoids that occur naturally in the brain and body.
The endocanabinoid system runs throughout your body and is full of receptors that bind to the cannabinoids you introduce to your bloodstream. Although cannabidiol has no pshycoactive properties, it is highly reactive when introduced to the endocannabinoid system. This is why CBD is an appealing option for people looking to get relief from symptoms caused by inflammation, anxiety, stress, and other conditions without any feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
