Comprehensive research shows that CBD products have a low side-effect profile. However, the one notable concern is CBD's interaction with enzymes in the liver that metabolize the majority of pharmaceuticals. In most cases, studies have shown that this interaction is uncommon, but it can occur. By delaying the rate a pharmaceutical is metabolized, you potentially raise its potency and its side effects. This could be one of the reasons, CBD is able to lower the use of other pharmaceuticals.
“CBD oil is highly recognized as a natural way to heal the body with pain and inflammation, as well as support the nervous system, digestive system and many other tissues in the body,” said Clare Christensen, key accounts sales manager for Rush Direct, quoted in a March 2017 article in Pet Product News. Rush Direct offers a CBD oil-based supplement for dogs in treat form, Canabits CBD.
Alas, I spoke too soon. There were still 12 treats left to go, and it quickly became a slog — dry and with a bitter edge that became more and more pronounced with my endless mastication. My dog watched me raptly. I washed them down with seltzer, which was helpful. I imagine that for a dog, who has only a fraction of the number of taste buds a person does, the experience would be delightful.

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.
