As CBD has gained great popularity for its healing properties, people have begun to extend these benefits to their pets as well. In a recent survey conducted by the Veterinary Information Network, an online community of veterinarians, nearly two-thirds of respondents said they were asked about cannabis by their patients at least once a month. People are turning to CBD to help manage pain, arthritis, seizures and other health problems in their dogs and other pets. But with this recent emergence, many questions are raised: How do I use these products? How much should I use? And, is it even safe? We explore these questions and more to help you determine if CBD is right for your furry friends:

How does CBD oil work?
The effect on our body is really very easy to explain.
Humans have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) and many other receptors. This
system affects the time and intensity of pain, the effectiveness of the immune
system or the depth and relaxation of sleep.
