Hemp isn’t the only beneficial ingredient in them, though. There’s coconut and turmeric, both of which have tried-and-tested anti-inflammatory properties. The formulation is also gluten-free, for those who care about that sort of thing. Furthermore, the Treatibles team tells Leafly that that the hemp is medicinal grade, specifically grown for MMJ purposes.
All available evidence indicates that long-term use of Hemp Treats causes no long-term side effects. However, Hemp CBD has only truly been available for pets for the last few years, so there is of course still time to find an issue. However, phytocannabinoids work naturally in the body because they act like self-created cannabinoids — they can increase their concentrations, as well as attach to the same receptors.
CBD is not toxic, not habit forming and not psychoactive. Although CBD is derived from the hemp plant, it is not marijuana and does not get your pet “Stoned” or “Intoxicated”. CBD does not interfere or interact negatively with any of your pet’s ongoing medications or drugs. CBD possesses many healing properties and is safe to use. Elderly or aging pets benefit the most from the effects of CBD.
My dog has anxiety that is too high for CBD treats to help, but perhaps these would work for him. Even CBD hemp oil hasn’t been enough on it’s own for high anxiety, like car rides or fireworks. My dog gets 25 mg of CBD hemp oil (Pet Releaf or Canna Canine) on a Ewegurt treat (bought these based on your review!) twice daily, plus a low dose of Prozac. (He is intolerant of common sedating drugs like Valium and Trazodone.) When a high anxiety-provoking event occurs or is anticipated, I break out the big guns: Fairwinds Companion Tincture, which is 5:1 CBD to THC, and designed for pets and humans. It is available at marijuana shops in WA.
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.
As with many products of agriculture, the more scientists research the common flora of our planet, the more salutary uses they find for plant matter. Any cannabis advocate will tell you that marijuana is not the only product that derives from the cannabis plant. Famed dog lover and first American president George Washington grew cannabis, which was then referred to popularly as hemp, for its uses as a textile. It was harvested, processed, and fashioned into rope, fishing nets, and even clothing. Oils extracted from it had a number of uses that had nothing whatever to do with drug use or abuse.
My female pitbull momma and her puppies have suffered a severe trauma involving the suicide of my “husband”, their pack leader. They were present when he shot himself and were there truing to get him up and stayed by his side for afloat 2 hours before i got home… licking ands nudging at him… laying by his side crying when i got home. We were displaced for biohazard cleanup and obvious reasons but the dogs remained in the home… they lay in his spot where he wad discovered as are very distant from each other at times, aggressive more than normal, visually depressed, crying and whining… I was told to try puppy pot pulls but unsure of the type to purchase. I love in Arizona and honestly, not to worried if its legal. Due to the unexpectedly/untimely death and financial obligations, i can’t afford any type of training/grieving therapy. What would you recommend? There are 3 puppies and one momma. Puppies are 5.5 months (9/30/17) and about 42-46 pounds and mom is 3 years old (9/22/14) and about 49 pounds. All haves shots, very checked regularly… 100% full bred pit bulls. Any advice is welcomed as long ad is positive and helpful. No negative contents please as this is a very sensitive subject already and my fur-babies are vey important to me. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4966652a3d01673fcd0799182c36665e895478eeddbb4065b59bc0f4f813fcbe.jpg

Sales of CBD pet products doubled in the US from 2014 to 2016, according to MJ Freeway, a data analytics firm referenced by Polly Mosendz in a December 2016 article on Bloomberg.com. Interestingly, the article lumps CBD in the same category as THC, even questioning the ethics of “getting the dog high” (paraphrasing a quote from a senior vice president of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
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.
