However, there are veterinarians that support THC-free hemp supplements for animals. Miami-based veterinarian Dr. Patricia Khuly, VMD, has recommended hemp supplements to her patients, and has even made homemade versions using hemp oil for her pets. “I find they can be somewhat effective as part of a well rounded chronic pain protocol,” she tells Leafly—though she has never used them for pet anxiety or improving fur and skin. “Hemp oil sounds interesting for use in the same way fish oil would be implemented for these other indications,” she adds, “especially for my vegan clients who prefer to source non-animal based products for their pets.” She would like to see more research first, though.
The fears that aren't so adorable are fireworks, thunderstorms, windstorms, and power outages.  A couple of years ago we had a terrible windstorm – our power was out for a week.  On the day of the storm, the fence that surrounds the dogs' yard came down, and while Sydney and Scout ran into the house, Rodrigo ran out of their yard, and Zoey followed (always his shadow).  Since losing Blue, J has developed this uncanny sense of “I better go check on the dogs” and left work early.  So Rodrigo and Zoey weren't out in the storm for long, but since that day Rodrigo has been terrified whenever the wind blows hard or the power goes out.

Each of these no-nonsense biscuits contains 4mg of CBD. There are only five ingredients involved in their making, which is so straightforward and simple that you probably could make them on your own for much cheaper. But you probably won’t (I’m a devoted dog mom too, but I don’t have time to DIY everything), and if you’re looking for nothing but CBD with an appetizing bacon flavor to please your pupper, here you go.
“The pet product market is very excited about CBD products,” said Brad Solomon, founder/partner of Prana Pets, quoted in the Pet Product News article. “Many retailers want to carry these products, but they are concerned about the legality of CBD. Everybody we speak to agrees about all the amazing benefits associated with this category. Our client testimonials are enough for us. Every client who has tried our CBD products is experiencing positive results.”
Reilly’s soft chews are made primarily with the needs of small dogs in mind, although they are also suitable for maintenance dosing for larger dogs. All of Reilly’s products promise to be made from 100% organic, full-spectrum hemp, and are suitable for dogs of all ages. Reilly’s treats also come in a variety of different formulas, each one specifically designed to focus on a particular area of support, from brain support to anxiety reduction and more.

Cannabidiol is not a psychoactive agent. Before we even get to CBD dog treats, some may shake their heads, cluck their tongues, and say they don’t want their dogs getting high. That objection is very common, but just as easily dismissed. CBD is not toxic, and it does not have a particularly strong effect, if any at all, on the receptors in the brain that are influenced by THC. CBD does not affect perception and is incapable of turning normally functioning people or their dogs into Cheech, Chong, Harold, or Kumar. CBD treats for dogs are not the canine equivalent of pot brownies.


The company also promises that they used organic, plant-based products in all of their recipes, and they have also introduced a line known as MaxHemp. Items in the MaxHemp line supposedly have higher levels of hemp and terpenes and are also more easily absorbed by your pet’s body. And, to help pet parents find the right product to best meet their dogs needs, the company website has a handy ailment guide, where interested users can simply click on the ailment that is afflicting their pup, and be brought to a helpful page that explains why hemp products can help remedy the situation.
The cannabis genus of plants has a conflicted reputation, mostly because marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, meaning it “has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States,” according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. Times, attitudes, and even laws, change, and it’s been a decade since California pioneered the legal use of marijuana specifically for medicinal purposes. As of this writing, 25 states and the District of Columbia permit the sale and consumption of marijuana, both as medicine and as a recreational narcotic.

Our products are 100% free of pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. We’re are extremely careful and only source from 100% organic farms. And just to make sure pesticides have never come in contact, we routinely have our hemp tested by a third party for potency and the presence of any toxins/pesticides. You can see the results on the certificate of analysis found on our website.
The American Veterinary Medical Association does not have an official stance on medical marijuana, but cannabis is not FDA-approved for pets. Furthermore, in any given state (even legal states with booming cannabis markets like Colorado), veterinarians are banned from writing prescriptions for cannabis products. In 2015, a bill introduced in the Nevada state legislature that would have allowed pet owners to feed medical marijuana to sick pets was shot down.
