With that said, cannabis remains a Schedule I drug in the US, and that is why veterinarians are hesitant to prescribe any cannabis-based medicine. It will take at least half a decade to see any promising scientific advancement regarding medicinal cannabinoid use for pets. Until then, people will continue to rely on the testimonials of dog owners who have tried these products.
A newer pet food product category getting a lot of buzz at US pet trade shows the past two years has been pet treats and supplements featuring cannabidiol (CBD). Sorry for the bad pun; this oil derives from the hemp plant, though a different species than ones containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana responsible for the psychoactive reaction, or high (buzz), in people or animals who imbibe it. CBD does not cause the same reaction, say its proponents in the pet industry.
