The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) functions the same way in people as it does in dogs, cats and other animals. In reality ALL mammals have an Endocannabinoid System. This includes horses, rabbits, monkeys, dolphins and elephants to name a few. A huge amount of research is currently being undertaken around the world to find out how exactly the ECS might be utilized in the treatment of different chronic diseases.
The Endocannabinoid system in dogs is part of what maintains the natural balance in the body and it is usually stimulated by endocannabinoids which are produced internally. However, the endocannabinoid system can also be stimulated by external cannabinoids, including Cannabidiol (CBD) – the non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis sativa. The external stimulation from CBD is causing some big excitement in the medical world today.
