Rodrigo has a laundry list of fears, and most of them are adorable. He's afraid of baby gates, brooms, and a cleaned or re-arranged garage. Yep, you read that right. J used to fix up TransAms and BMWs, and when he started his business this summer, he sold all of the cars and parts. Rodrigo took one look at our clean and organized garage, backed up and ran to another room. Nope! He wasn't having it. I had to walk with him, while he was glued to my side, around the garage before he gave his okay. Now he doesn't care. Adorable.
Treatibles makes a wide variety of products, from CBD infused treats to oils and even gel caps. This company also produces its treat in a number of different flavors, and even makes grain free products so even those with especially sensitive stomachs can enjoy the benefits that CBD yields. The company also has some specific feeding instructions, recommending 1mg of oil for every 10 lbs your pup weighs.
“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.”
Doubts that linger around cannabidiol in dogs involve the continuing confusion and conflation of CBD with THC, as well as the cannabis plant’s legal status. To reiterate, CBD does not get anyone high, neither human nor dog, since the chemical is non-toxic and non-psychoactive. You may be aware that, in 2015, there was some controversy, as the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to CBD dog treat manufacturer Canna-Pet. The substance of this warning was that Canna-Pet’s site announced claims on their website, touting the medical benefits and medicinal uses of their dog treats.
Before you decide to slip your pup a sample—or even one of your edibles (hint: they can’t eat chocolate)—be warned that animals are incredibly sensitive to THC. This is due to abundant receptors in their brains, their heightened sensitivity, and their propensity for experiencing static ataxia. Like humans, dogs suffer from a variety of ailments, such as aching joints and anxiety, that could possibly benefit from treatment with cannabinoids. But because we know even less about the effects of cannabis on dogs than we do of its effects on humans, you should consult your veterinarian before proceeding further. Cannabis has the potential to cause numerous negative health effects in pets, and unlike in humans, it can even be lethal for your animal.
