Frequently Asked Question!
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis, the plant we often associate with marijuana.
CBD won’t get your pet “high”.
Unlike THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana, CBD is completely non psychoactive and safe to be used on pets.
CBD interacts with the body via the endocannabinoid system, or ECS.
The ECS is a biological system found in all mammals, and is involved in managing a wide variety of biological processes, including memory, sleep, immune response, and more.
It mainly consists of two types of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2).
These receptors are built to interact with endocannabinoids (cannabinoids naturally produced by the brain).
The endocannabinoid system is essentially the system that processes cannabinoids introduced into the body.
The effects of CBD are similar in humans, dogs, cats, and other pets.
This is because, just like humans, dogs and cats also have an endocannabinoid system that functions much in the same way as the human ECS.
According to Dr. Patrick Mahaney, VMD, CVA, CVJ, who owns California Pet Acupuncture and Wellness (CPAW) in Los Angeles, “cannabis can have antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain-relieving), sedative, and other positive effects.” It’s been used, legally or illegally, for animals suffering from a variety of ailments since the late 1800s, he says. These include:
- arthritis and other types of inflammation-related pain
- behavior problems
- digestive tract upset
- inflammatory bowel disease
- infections (bacterial, fungal, etc.)
- intervertebral disc disease (IVDD)
- kidney and liver diseases
- seizures and other disorders of the nervous system
- skin disorders
- chronic pain management
- separation anxiety
- noise phobias (one study shows that CBD helped reduce blood pressure and other fear-related physical symptoms in animals)
While experts caution that CBD oil for dogs and related products are not a cure-all, it has demonstrated health benefits for pets and doesn’t have the same side effects as many prescription drugs.

Much like in humans, dogs have what are called cannabinoid receptors in their bodies. These receptors reside in what scientists call the endocannabinoid system. Otherwise known as the EC system, it works to balance several of your dog’s bodily functions, including:
- movement and coordination
- immune system response
As a naturally occurring cannabinoid, CBD is molecularly comparable to your dog’s endocannabinoids. When CBD enters your dog’s bloodstream, it binds with cannabinoid receptors to help stimulate and support the EC system in bringing homeostasis (balance) back to any of the aforementioned functions if they’re out of balance.
According to Tessera Naturals, dosage is the main determining factor for any side effects of CBD, and while most people report no side effects whatsoever, some who have taken higher doses have reported minor issues such as diarrhea, changes in appetite, fatigue, dry mouth, nausea and vomiting.”
