You have probably had your animal come to you when you are using marijuana and you may have even felt a bit bad if the smoke from the plant ended up in their personal space. But what if cannabis was beneficial for your pet? Well, now it can be.
They may be new to you, but Treatibles actually launched in 2014. It is an online-based business featuring medicated biscuits meant just for your furry friend. All of the online store’s products contain cannabidiol aka CBD, one of the ingredients in marijuana. It has been shown to treat pain and a number of ailments, and it’s all natural!
The two current flavor options are blueberry and pumpkin, both of which are available in several sizes. Whether you have a Great Dane or a Chihuahua, there is a Treatible option for you.
Is CBD Safe for Dogs?
CBD cannot harm humans or animals. Any living thing that has an endocannabinoid system can process CBD. Dogs, just like humans, have endocannabinoid systems that are prepared for the naturally-occurring chemical. The group of receptors are what respond to cannabidiol.
It is non-psychoactive, meaning it will not get your dog high, but it will provide relief.
So what ailments can CBD treat? Here are just a few:
Symptoms of Cancer
Loss of Appetite
If your dog has reacted poorly to certain drugs, CBD may be a safe alternative. While veterinarians cannot legally disperse CBD, you may speak to them about your decision to treat an ailment with the substance. If your veterinarian approves the decision, you can move forward by purchasing the CBD treats on the Treatibles website.
If you are not sure that it will be the right treatment for your pup, you can always start small to give it a trial run. If your pet responds well, perhaps you will be purchasing more Treatibles in the future!
