How can Hemp 4 Paws products help my pet?
Our products contain a non-psychoactive extract from the hemp plant which, unlike THC, doesn’t have any psychoactive properties, meaning it doesn’t make your pet feel high.
They interact with their endocannabinoid system, which all living creatures have. This system is predominantly made up of 2 types of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) that are found throughout your pets body (including brain, skin, immune system, joint cells, etc.) and play a major role in their nervous, immune, endocrine, reproductive, cardiovascular, and digestive systems.
