Animals, such as humans, display an Endocannabinoid System with receptors CB-1 (in charge of cerebral processes) and CB-2 (mainly found in the immunological system and peripherical organs). In this sense, animals can also produce endocannabinoids and their receptors react to medical cannabis in a way similar to humans. Nevertheless, there is still the need to conduct more research on the effects of medical cannabis in pets.

“Since my dog has been diagnosed with epilepsy, I searched for a less aggressive for his body and that could help to decrease his epileptic attacks. When the dog was experiencing a crisis, we could only make it stop with a suppository and it was always slow to be effective. But, now that we are using CBD when the dog is experiencing an epileptic attack, in a very short time, the dog stops shaking and calms down. Now, the attacks are less frequent and less aggressive.”
