The use of cannabis-based medicine will continue to develop, and what people need now is assurance that the effects of the cannabis products will not harm their beloved pets. There is much misinformation in the public sphere, and the most important thing is to get everyone to understand the promising medicinal benefits that CBD can provide to pets. Cannabis is not going away anytime soon, and pet owners should consider all sides of the issue when thinking about giving CBD products to the furry friend in their life.
There are plenty of THC-free (or less than 1% THC) CBD hemp oil supplements for dogs that you can buy online or in some pet stores.

Here, I’ve included the best treat-like supplements for your pup—because shouldn’t Fido enjoy his cannabis experience too?
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.

The company currently has its wares in more than 1500 stores across the United States, Canada, and New Zealand, and interestingly doesn’t use CBD in any of their products; instead, they make use of other parts of the hemp plant.
These gluten-free treats, made with chicken soup, will satisfy the pickiest of eaters with their umami taste. I have a picky dog that routinely turns down treats from strangers if they don’t smell good enough—no Milk-Bones accepted—so I’m constantly looking for the smelliest, most pungent treats to give her. Unfortunately, premium juicy meat treats tend to leave stains in my pockets. But you get the best of both worlds with these biscuits: savory taste with yuck-free packaging.
