When it comes to pet CBD, retailers need to ensure that they’re carrying a quality product to protect their customers and the well-being of the companion animals using the CBD product. Reputable brands will be transparent when it comes to the sourcing and third-party testing of the product. In addition, the product should be backed by accepted quality and safety standards and certifications. As more studies take place and their results are published in scientific and veterinary publications, we learn that CBD demonstrates multiple properties, including analgesic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antineoplastic, antiemetic and anticonvulsant. Due to its versatility and benefits, CBD can be found in many applications and forms, from oils and tinctures to topical sprays, gels and chews.
