All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is one of the oldest systems in the mammalian body and handles supporting homeostasis, or balance. Whatever is not functioning as it should, whether that be an inflammatory response, a cognitive issue or a digestive issue is brought back into balance by the ECS. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the brain and body and are activated when CBD + CBDA, terpenes, and the smaller cannabinoids are introduced in the body.
CB1 and CB2 receptors are the primary receptors in the ECS but by no means the only receptors. CB1 receptors are in the brain and the central nervous system and the CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system, the immune system, and the gut. When the body needs to address an imbalance, the specific receptors for that issue are activated, and CBD + CBDA stimulates the response.
Terpenes are additional compounds found in the hemp plant and are best known for their smell. However, they are important in other ways, such as promoting calm or helping with an anti-inflammatory response. Terpenes work together with cannabinoids to work synergistically to create an overall better effect, which is called the entourage effect. 1935 Pet Drops proprietary blend has a robust terpene profile that contributes to the incredible effectiveness of the 1935cbd family of products.
In a clinical trial at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, over 80% of participating dogs showed significant or dramatic improvement while using high quality CBD products. Some owners were moved to tears by their pet’s progress.
