Ricks Hemp Oil for Pets

Can you use Hemp Oil for pets?

Many dog owners give their pets CBD Oil or Hemp Oil. Research has shown that pets have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), just like humans do.

What’s the science behind Hemp Oil for dogs?

Named after the plant that led to its discovery, the endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors located throughout the body. Short-lived natural endocannabinoid substances are synthesized on demand by the body to maintain homeostasis, a stable internal environment. When these internal mechanisms lag behind the body’s needs, supplementing with extra Cannabinoids can help. Research also suggests that supplementing can coax the body to build more receptors so natural cannabinoids will work more effectively.


Two types of receptors have been identified: CB1 receptors, predominantly in the brain, nervous system, glands and organs; and CB2 receptors, found mainly in the regulatory cells of the immune system. Many tissues contain both receptors, each linked to a different action. A key role of the endocannabinoid system is controlling inflammation by up-regulating or down-regulating the immune response. An overactive response can lead to allergies and auto-immune problems; an underactive one can leave the body susceptible to infections and the unchecked proliferation of cancer cells.


This means that CBD Oil for dogs can help to regulate their immune responses and control inflammation. Hemp Oil for dogs can therefore be particularly useful for dogs who suffer from arthritis or other inflammatory or joint-related conditions.
