Is CBD safe for my pet?
Yes. It is important to differentiate THC from CBD. Marijuana, which is mildly addictive, has high levels of THC. Hemp, on the other hand, has low THC and high CBD, and is neither mentally nor physically addictive. In fact, study after study has shown that CBD actually has anti-addictive properties and can be beneficial in treating addictions to alcohol, tobacco, opiates, and psychostimulants in people and animals (Journal of Neuroscience).
