Everyone (except the government) seems to realize that medical cannabis can treat humans for a number of health problems, but did you know cannabis can treat dogs as well? Of course, we DO NOT mean you should slip your dog an edible.
It turns out, CBD, or cannabidiol, can treat a number of health issues from cancer and epilepsy to pain and hip displaysia.
“Most of the pet owners that are using the product are using it for separation anxiety, things like hip dysplasia and arthritis, mobility pain, ageing — a lot of ageing dogs are using the product — and then we have some dogs that have epilepsy that use the product with great success, some dogs with cancer … so it’s a pretty wide range of conditions that can be addressed with CBD really successfully,” explained Julianna Carella, owner and founder of Treatibles, in an interview with Reason.
Treatibles is the company that manufactures CBD treats for dogs.
“Treatibles are super food wellness treats infused with a proprietary blend of CBD & other non psychoactive cannabinoids derived from hemp grown for medicinal purposes,” they write on their website. “We seek to help strengthen and support animals with our CBD-rich products to provide preventative care throughout their lives and restorative care when they or sick or in pain.”
