Pets are a cherished part of the family and when health problems arise the cost of insurance for your furry friend can run in the range of $225 per year. Now a new medical alternative is available that may just be what pet owners are looking for. The CBD pet market is a growing market but there are two types of CBD markets out there. First is the medical CBD pet market that is available in cannabis friendly states like California, Colorado, Nevada, Washington and Oregon. This market offers products containing both CBD and THC that help pets with arthritis, cancer and end of life care & comfort. The second is the on-line CBD market which is derived exclusively from hemp that helps with pain, skin problems and anxiety.
For purposes of this article we will be highlighting the top CBD-rich hemp pet products that are lab-tested, non-GMO and contain no pesticides, solvents, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Pets cannot become intoxicated from these products as they contain zero THC content.
There has been shown to be a lot of potential for cannabinoids to be very beneficial in animals for management of various things like epilepsy, pain management, anti-nausea, anti-itch, anxiety and mobility but there is still room for more research.
NOTE: Per FDA regulations. None of of the highlighted companies can make any health claims. But the success stories on some of their websites speak volumes.

As the story goes, Wendy Mansfield was prepared to take Kali, her beloved 15 year old labrador mix to the vet to be euthanized due to pain. But one last attempt to aid her friend brought Wendy to Auntie Dolores’s door (so to speak) and she gave Kali a CBD cookie, within minutes the licking that indicated pain had stopped. Wendy continued to give Kali cookies that resulted in mobility and extended her life.
You can find numerous success stories on the treatables website as well as lab results.
