The active ingredients in hemp and marijuana are called cannabinoids. The most widely recognized cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These compounds affect the body by binding to receptors in the brain and immune systems. Hemp-based products are the primary source of CBD supplements used by pet-owners, and these supplements lack the higher levels of THC that cause the “high” sensation seen with marijuana use.
There are several companies who sell products containing CBD. Sold as treats, capsules, or oils, they are classified by the FDA as supplements rather than drugs. Products that the FDA considers to be “drugs” undergo strict testing and oversight to ensure that there are no contaminants and that the advertised “strength”, or amount of ingredient, is in the final product. Supplements are not regulated by the FDA like drugs so there is very little oversight of the quality of the products sold to pet owners.
There are a lot of testimonials about the positive effects people have observed in their pets after using CBD supplements. Owners of older animals with chronic pain, who do not tolerate traditional oral pain medications, appear to be the biggest advocates of these supplements. They see an improvement in their pet’s comfort and mobility using CBD products in combination with, or in place of, their other medications. Many owners have reported that the supplements have improved the appetites of pets with chronic, end-stage diseases such as cancer, heart failure or kidney failure. People also reported improvement in conditions such as cognitive dysfunction, anxiety and inflammatory bowel disease.
