Hemp is not a mysterious substance, despite its reputation as a cure-all. There is hard science behind how hemp works, and why it works in dogs.
Hemp contains naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids. There are over 140 known cannabinoids that have been identified in hemp and these cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system found in animals and in humans.

Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body and the brain and the different receptors affect different functions. Some cannabinoid receptors work on sensation, some affect mood and some on appetite. As cannabinoid receptors are found in the brain, organs, peripheral nervous system, connective tissue, glands and immune cells. The function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain a stable environment in the body and therefore it makes sense that cannabinoid receptors are present in so many different areas of the body and brain.
The cannabinoids found in hemp stimulates these receptors and can signal the body to build more cannabinoid receptors. This is why the ElleVet product may work better and better over time, as your dog’s body builds more receptors and promotes better results.
