Have a hyper pup or cat that just won’t chill no matter what? Or the opposite, an older pet that’s dragging because their joints ache? You may have CBD on the mind, because chances are you know someone who swears it fixed the fill-in-the-blank issue their doggo was having.
Cannibidiol, a substance that comes from cannabis plants (including industrial hemp as well as many other cannabis strains grown for medical marijuana production), is making headlines for reports that it can treat pain, anxiety, inflammation and even cancer in humans, but it’s not just people lapping it up. CBD is popping up all over the place — for pooches — and pet owners are buying.
