How Does CBD Affect Pets?
BY Grace kaucic
TL;DR: Yes, CBD is safe for pets! All vertebrates have a network of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors called the endocannabinoid system. This system enables CBD and other cannabinoids to interact with the brain and body and promote homeostasis. This makes CBD a safe and effective supplement to give to your pet.
The endocannabinoid system is comprised of thousands of receptors located throughout the brain and body. None of the cannabinoid receptors are in the lower parts of the brain where breathing is controlled, making it physically impossible to overdose on CBD. As CBD continues to rise in popularity for human use, many manufacturers have begun creating CBD products specifically for pets. Bluebird’s Companion Oil, for example, is a simple blend of full-spectrum hemp extract based in organic hemp seed oil with no flavors, preservatives, or any other ingredients. Additionally, our Companion Capsules include this same CBD oil extract blended in hemp seed oil and provided in gelcap form for serving consistency.
