Should I Give My Pet CBD? [Pets & CBD FAQ] | Made By Hemp

While both are cannabis plants, hemp and marijuana differ in their cultivation, application, and chemical makeup. The most significant difference between these two plants is the levels of THC, which is a psychoactive compound that creates a high. Marijuana is bred to have high levels of THC; hemp is bred to have low levels of THC. Products derived from hemp must legally contain less than 0.3% THC, which is a negligible amount that will not get your pet high.

CBD is a non-psychoactive substance that is safe to administer to pets. As long as CBD is properly sourced from hemp, it is legal in the United States.


The research on CBD and pets is in the beginning stages. Currently, the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Colorado State University is studying the effectiveness of cannabidiol in the treatment of epilepsy and osteoarthritis in dogs. Trials are still on going, the results are not yet available. Additionally, the School of Veterinary Medicine at University of California, Davis is surveying pet owners who give their pet cannabis to gather information and lead the way for future research.
