THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)

PRINCIPLES OF PRODUCT

GOALS AND EXPECTATIONS

The ECS is a system in mammals consisting of proteins, enzymes, and molecules.  The ECS regulates fundamental processes of the central nervous and peripheral systems. Learn about cannabinoids, CB1 and CB2 receptors, and the different phytocannabinoids like CBD and THC. 
Warning: Not all cannabis products are created equally.  Some products can even be toxic to your pet.  Learn how to make an informed product choice by understanding plant source materials, methods of extraction, testing standards, labels, dosing and administration, additives and fillers to avoid, and much, much more!
Cannabis therapy is rooted in a holistic approach.  We revisit your pet's therapeutic plan from this perspective, discussing how to set reasonable goals and expectations.  By working together as a team, we ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.


THERAPEUTIC CANNABIS PLANS

GOALS AND EXPECTATION


A cannabis plan for your pet involves the oversight of a veterinarian, a counselor, and most importantly you!  Cannabis is not an instant fix; it takes time to find the ideal dose for your pet's condition(s).  With the pet parent's patience and diligence, we truly can create an effective cannabis plan.
Learn about the current local and federal laws regulating cannabis and how they affect you, your pet, and your relationship with your veterinarian.  Did you know your veterinarian is prohibited from discussing cannabis with you?  And that's just the tip of the iceberg...!
