How Does CBD Work?

How does CBD Hemp Oil work?

By activating the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in mammals. The ECS is involved in almost every system in you and your pet’s body. – cardiovascular, digestion, relaxation, and even the cognitive and memory functions.  The ECS is also a key factor in the mammalian body’s anti-inflammatory efforts. The ECS is controlled by receptors, which scientists call the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

CBD works directly with the ECS system by “antagonizing” the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are one of the most abundant receptors in the brain and are found in almost every neuron in a mammal’s body. CB2 receptors are found almost exclusively in the immune system.

Cannabidiol (CBD) and related cannabinoids found in the hemp plant are the only compounds in the natural world that work with these receptors. According to scientists, this means that the mammalian body (yes, including all dogs and cats) have evolved to actually require CBD in order to function and work at our optimal levels of health.

Another important scientific find is that these receptors, when activated by CBD, allow for two-way communication between a mammal’s various body systems. Previously, scientists thought the body’s signals went in one direction only. This is one of the main reasons scientists think CBD is so effective at treating spasmodic, inflammatory, pain, anxiety and many other health issues.

The National Cancer Institute, a division of the United States National Institutes of Health, has even stated that CBD (cannabidiol) has shown anti-cancer properties in multiple scientific clinical studies – including the ability to actually kill cancer cells. The National Cancer Institute also states that when CBD is ingested during chemotherapy treatments, the combined treatment is more effective at killing cancer and the surrounding healthy cells have higher survivability.


Pet Releaf CBD Hemp Oil facts:

Derived from the whole plant


CBD Hemp Oil facts are undeniable  Study after study has shown the importance of the “entourage effect” as Dr. Sanjay Gupta has called it whereby the entire range of the plant’s compounds are necessary to provide the maximum health benefits. Pet Releaf CBD Hemp oil uses the whole hemp plant where these necessary compounds are found. Many companies offering CBD products are using “isolates” which are essentially single-molecule, CBD only granules. These isolate forms of CBD are almost exclusively produced by companies who source their hemp from China.

Made from hemp we source from multi-generational European farms


100% of our hemp is grown on organic, non-GMO farms in Europe. At Pet Releaf, it is company policy to NEVER use anything whatsoever in our products that is grown, made or produced in China. Yes, CBD from Chinese hemp would be significantly cheaper, but the problem is that a very high percentage of Chinese hemp is planted in fields that have contaminants, heavy metals and pollutants. Chinese hemp is literally used to “clean” the soil of these toxic elements so they can attempt to use those fields for food-based farming.

Extracted using super critical CO2 fluid extraction technology


Our proprietary method for extracting the CBD hemp oil uses carbon dioxide under extremely high pressure (over 10,000 psi) and very low temperatures. This is a highly technical process and involves very expensive equipment. At Pet Releaf, the additional cost is worth it because it provides completely pure, highly concentrated oil and does not harm the precious enzymes, cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids. Other companies use butane, ethanol, or other toxic solvent based extraction methods because it is significantly cheaper, easier to implement, and does not require expensive equipment.

Completely legal and does not require a prescription


We source all of our hemp from Europe which is 100% legal in all 50 states and many countries around the world. Our CBD hemp oil is NOT made from the federally illegal marijuana plant. Further, our oil is completely natural and does NOT require any prescription or recommendation from your vet.

Safe and Non-psychoactive


Since our CBD hemp oil is 100% natural, it is completely safe for your pets. Pet Releaf CBD hemp oil also has no psychoactive properties so it will not get your pets “high”. Dogs and cats lack the ability to effectively metabolize THC – the psychoactive element in the marijuana plant. It can be very dangerous to give your pet anything containing any psychoactive levels of THC, such as medical marijuana products now being sold in much of the United States.

Excellent source of plant based protein and essential fatty acids


The hemp plant is quickly being added to many “superfood” lists. By using the whole plant including the seeds, Pet Releaf CBD hemp oil provides these numerous health benefits. Hemp is one of Nature’s best sources of plant-based protein. Unlike soy, hemp does not contain enzyme inhibitors and phytates, so the full range of 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids are easily absorbed into the body. The hemp plant also contains significant amounts of essential fatty acids – Omega 3 and Omega 6 – in a 1:4 ratio which is touted by major health organizations as the magic ratio for healthy benefits. Hemp also contains the Super Omegas – Stearidonic Acid (SDA) and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).
