How CBD Works

How CBD Works For Pets

For Everyday Use!  

Many people turn to hemp oil products as their pets age or experience the health or behavioral issues shown on this page. Other pet owners use hemp oil cannabinoid products, like Smart Hemp, everyday for the healthful benefits they read about. Some call it preventative while others point to their desire to address neurological, cardiovascular, immune system health and more. 
See the graphic below for how CBD interacts with your pet's CB1 and CB2 Endocannabinoid System's receptors.

How Cannabinoids Work

All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (or ECS). The ECS is involved in almost every system in your pet’s body, like cardiovascular, cognitive/memory, digestion, and relaxation functions. The ECS, whether a human’s or a pet’s, is regulated by receptors called CB1 and CB2. Phytocannabinoids attach to the receptors, helping them function with more power for longer durations.
Smart Hemp is a premium phytocannabinoid (CBD) Hemp Extract product that works with your pet’s ECS system, improving the CB1 and CB2 receptors. 
  • CB1 Receptors - One of the most abundant receptors in the brain, are found in almost every neuron in a dog, cat or horse’s body.
  • CB2 Receptors - Found almost exclusively in your pet’s immune system. 
Our Smart Hemp products incorporate CBD which is a natural compound that interacts well with the CB1 & CB2 receptors. According to scientists, a mammal’s body (including dogs, cats and horses) evolved to require phytocannibinoids in order to function at optimal levels of health. Scientists also found that the CB1 & CB2 receptors, when activated by phytocannabinoids, allow for two-way communication between your dog, cat or horse’s various body systems. This is one of the main reasons scientists think a phytocannabinoid product (such as Smart Hemp) might effectively address a pet’s health issues.


    Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp CBD products are required to contain less than 0.3% THC to be legally marketed. Smart Hemp CBD products have ZERO THC.
