Full Spectrum/Whole Plant “Entourage Effect”:
Terpenes and cannabinoids (such as CBD and THC) work together to maximize benefits in the body. Studies show that CBD and THC can often create better outcomes in combination.
This is the part of the plant with no psychoactive properties and in fact can reduce the psychoactivity seen with THC. It also has several medicinal benefits.
This is the part of the plant with psychoactive properties but it also has many medicinal benefits.
Compounds that are found in the oils of all plants that possess medicinal properties. They interact synergistically with other components of the plant (cannabinoids and flavonoids) to create a greater physiologic response. This phenomenon is known as the entourage effect.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS):
This system is one of the most important systems for building and maintaining the health of your pet. Its primary function is balancing all of the other systems of the body. THC and CBD are cannabinoids that bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system, specifically the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Chemical compounds (such as anandamide) that are naturally produced within the body and bind to the same receptors as THC.
Cannabis flavonoids are a naturally occurring group of phytonutrients. Flavonoids in themselves have been known for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties.
The process of gradually increasing medicine. The purpose of titrating slowly is to allow your pets receptors a chance to get used to the medicine and therefore reduce the risk of side effects. Keep in mind, when titrating, monitor your pet carefully and adjust the dose as needed based on your observation of how they react to each dose increase.
Class of cell membrane receptors in the G protein-coupled receptor family. The cannabinoids (both endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids) bind to these receptors.
