Cannabis products are toxic for animals because of the levels of THC (tetrahydro-cannabinol) in plant or plant-based edibles. It is generally believed that canines are 4 to 6 times more prone to THC toxicity than humans.

People interested in using these products should have a conversation with your veterinarian and keep aware of research in the field. Any product should not have any traces of THC, (tetrahydro-cannabinol) which is toxic for animals. Research on the particular vendor will determine the level of testing to determine the actual levels of CBD or THC in each product.

While research on the value of CBD products for animals is limited, many have used CBD products to support a healthier lifestyle for pets. If considering using this product, make sure to choose a product that is of high quality and meets or exceeds the standards for the acceptable level of CBD.
