CBD for Pets, Cool innovative products.

One of my friends at Bothell Feed Center, sent me this pic of some products they carry.  These are cannabidiol or CBD infused supplements for Pets.  I, personally, have only heard good things about these products.  They don't contain any THC, the psychoactive compound found in many cannabis strains.  These are derived from commercial hemp plants that contain very little if any THC to begin with.  As THC can be toxic to dogs, I can understand some pet owners concerns.  Set them aside though because there is zero chance of these products containing any THC.
Why give these to your pet?  Like humans, even you, our pets have endocannabinoid systems. (Google that one if you don't already know about it.)  The short version is, everything with an endocannabinoid system produces CBD, and other cannabinoids, in small amounts to help regulate the body's homeostasis.  Think keeping everything in proper working order, or re-watch Bio-Dome (like you need an excuse right).  
Anyhow, some of the supplements that might be replaced or be made to work better by these types of product include:  Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and Fish Oil, just to name a few.  So, if your pet suffers from arthritis or other digestive issues, maybe give these a try.
