• Cannabidiol (CBD) – A non-psychoactive compound used to help dogs with inflammation, pain and epilepsy.  There are edible products for dogs on the market priced under $25 per bag of 40 treats with 1 milligram of CBD per morsel.  These products are not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the manufacturers are not legally allowed to advertise their products due to lack of research on the effects for dogs in the U.S.

• Dosage – Your dog may have side effects from pot so it’s important to consult with your veterinarian before you take any steps to use medical marijuana for dogs as a way to medicate your dog for any reason.  It’s very easy to overdose your dog with serious health consequences for your dog as an outcome

  1. A brilliant post, Roberta! I highly appreciate the way you have mentioned some of the essential facts behind the use of medical marijuana for dogs. However, you could have mentioned a little bit about the benefits of it for those who are new to the term. Many people might get a little scared about using medical marijuana even though it does deserve appreciation for the way it helps us dog lovers keep our dogs safe.

    • Arnold,
      Thank you for taking the time to make a suggestion on this subject that makes sense to me and I will plan on a new post to address the benefits of medical marijuana for dogs very soon. You are correct, there are positive results when used properly to help dogs who need relief. Watch for the post and let me know what you think. Thanks again, Roberta
