CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is gaining popularity as a beneficial cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It has been used for years as a holistic option for humans. In 1992, researchers discovered that the human body has a biological system called the Endocannabinoid System. Its main function is to regulate and maintain a natural balance in the body. The endocannabinoid system can be stimulated by external cannabinoids such as CBD.

Recently, it was discovered that dogs and cats also have an endocannabinoid system. As a result, CBD oil for dogs and cats is now being sold, as it can potentially provide many benefits to ailing pets. This infographic from HolistaPet explains the endocannabinoid system in dogs and cats.
