Westword published a fantastic article on CBD for pets, and we wanted to share it with you! We’re very passionate about CBD and how it helps animals, such as with Arthur (watch Arthur the pig’s story here!), and love hearing success stories!

Ernest Misko was using cannabis to treat his chronic back pain. His elderly cat Borzo started having difficulty walking, so he decided to feed the cat a cannabis tincture. Within a few days, he said that Borzo was moving around much better and seemed to be in less pain.

Misko’s story was published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, along with similar success stories of pet owners giving cannabis to their dogs or cats when facing health issues. Keep reading the Westword article here for more!

I thought this part was particularly interesting:

“A survey published in 2016 found that about half or more of the respondents saw medical marijuana improve their pets’ conditions. The survey, published in the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, was conducted by a team from the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine in partnership with [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][a] hemp-treat company. Of the 632 people surveyed, about 72 percent reported using a hemp product with their dogs, and about 16 percent reported using it with their cats. Just over 64 percent of dog owners and 66 percent of cat owners felt that the hemp products had helped their pets either moderately or a great deal. Hemp helped 49 percent of dogs with anxiety, as reported by their owners, and helped 56 percent of cats with inflammation.”

How cool is that? We hear a lot of wonderful success stories from our community, and we can’t get enough!
