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).
Researchers have shown that CBD carries many potential health benefits. These health benefits include; Reducing inflammation & pain, improving circulation, promoting bone growth, reducing stress levels and anxiety, reducing nausea and stimulating the appetite, increasing cognitive functions, lowering blood sugar levels, reducing seizures, inhibiting cancer cell growth, and improving overall wellness and health for your pet.
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.

For those with larger dogs, Reilly’s makes a line of dedicated high potency chews as well, which comes in similar varieties but in a different package. And last but not least, the company also manufactures a therapeutic oil, which is made with naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and tocopherols as well as Vitamin E, which the owners say helps to neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals in the environment.
True Leaf is a Canadian based company that has really taken advantage of the recent interest in hemp based remedies to grow from small business to major player. 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.
Prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat can cause the Hemp Treats to prematurely spoil. When temperatures rise above 160°F, it will cause the phytocannabinoids in the Hemp Treats to break down and become ineffective. Refrigeration is the easiest way to extend the product’s shelf life. However, refrigeration will not be needed in the majority of cases.
The company used to call them biscuits, but didn’t want them to be confused with regular ol’ dog treats because they contain 2mg of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil (sourced directly from a Colorado Department of Agriculture provider) each. “These are not training treats. These are health products or supplements,” Polly Patterson, COO/CMO of HHPC, tells Leafly, adding that they were created in partnership with veterinarians. The green-lipped mussel ingredient is a unique and special touch—it is a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which are popular supplements for aging dogs with aching joints and muscle pain.
Hemp Treats take approximately 40-60 minutes to enter the bloodstream and between 6-8 hours to exit. If faster relief is needed, check out PurCBD+ Oil — it takes approximately 20 minutes to enter the bloodstream. Depending on your pet’s unique body chemistry and medical condition, some effects may take longer to see the Hemp Treats helping with. However, you have 30 days from the date of purchase to request a return and refund if you feel that your pet is not benefiting from our product.
To be honest, we don't get many returns, so we don’t worry or require any forms or documents. All you have to do is just include something with your name or order number so that we know which order to refund. We offer a 30-day return period for all our products if they are returned to us unopened and unused. Also, for many of our products, such as PurCBD+ and PurOtic, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee even if they are opened and completely used.
Our products are 100% free of pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. We’re are extremely careful and only source from 100% organic farms. And just to make sure pesticides have never come in contact, we routinely have our hemp tested by a third party for potency and the presence of any toxins/pesticides. You can see the results on the certificate of analysis found on our website.
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
