Just like humans, all dogs have a built-in endocannabinoid system, or ECS. That’s a series of molecules and receptors that communicate with each other to keep systems in balance—sleep, mood, digestion, memory hormones and more.
When a dog is in this state of homeostasis, organs function optimally to create physiological, cognitive and emotional equilibrium. That’s a happy, healthy dog!
However, if the balance of the ECS is disrupted, so is a pup’s wellbeing.
