Marijuana benefits for animals are not well studied by the scientific community. However, there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that hemp-based CBD products may:
Improve overall health and wellness
Reduce feelings of stress and anxiety
Provide pain relief
Stimulate the appetite
These benefits apply to pets who are suffering from age-related disorders and deterioration like arthritis, as well as those going through medical treatments for cancer or terminal illness. Young, healthy pets who suffer from allergies, sensitive skin, or separation anxiety may also benefit from hemp-based products.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a therapeutic compound found in marijuana and hemp. It is used in medical marijuana to provide a range of health benefits for humans and is now being examined for marijuana benefits for animals. CBD is not psychoactive like THC. This means your pet can experience the relaxing and medicinal benefits of marijuana without the “high”.
Although Canada does not currently allow veterinarians to prescribe medical marijuana for animals, hemp-based CBD products, like treats, biscuits, oils, and supplements, do not require a veterinarian prescription since they are derived from legally available hemp.
