The Path to CBD

Listen to this article

There has been a growing interest in cannabis-related products for both humans and pets. Now more than ever, the pet industry is buzzing about cannabidiol, or CBD. And while major studies are currently being conducted, there have been no completed studios to provide major data on the properties of CBD on pets, dogs in particular, many consumers have reported anecdotal evidence of the range of benefits CBD products offer their pets. That’s why American Kennel Club’s chief veterinary officer, Dr. Jerry Klein, said of the sector: “We are likely to see continued interest in CBD and an increase in research about its uses and efficacy in the coming years.”

Manufacturers and retailers need to be cognizant of everything surrounding CBD and its products. This includes working with other members in the pet industry as well as communicating with customers to know the health status of their dog. The ultimate goal is to find the best use of these products and how they can be a long-term benefit for dogs.

What we know of cannabidiol is that, unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD will not produce any “high” or euphoric sensations. The common belief is that CBD oil has a wide range of benefits for dogs, such as reducing anxiety and seizures, increasing appetite and being an anti-inflammatory to prevent arthritis.

These products offer only the highest quality ingredients to best address a dog’s needs. And from oil drops to delicious treats, dog owners can find comfort in the ease of administration. As long as you are communicating the benefits and risks to customers, the path to CBD being scientifically accepted as a remedy will become clearer.
