The skies blacken, thunder crackles, lightning streaks across the sky and like clockwork you hear the familiar pitter-patter of doggo paws come skidding across the dining room floor running for safety--to you, his thunder buddy.

You reach for the hot new trend for anxiety relief in pets: CDB. Seconds later, the anxiety-ridden Luke Skybarker transitions to a calmer, more content state thanks to CBD.

But is it safe? Depends on who you ask. Is it legal? Not exactly.

People swear by the medical and holistic benefits of CBD, or low-THC and high-CBD combinations for themselves. So naturally, they've begun to treat their thunder buddies for anxiety, not to mention pain, ulcers, andepileptic seizures--the same things humans use cannabis products for.

There's been little research on cannabis benefits to your fur babies so, like with humans, there is a gray area when it comes to per-specific cannabis products, and proper regulation is almost non-existent.

The2018 Farm Billlegalized the growing and sale of industrial hemp with less than .03 percent THC content, THC being the psychoactive chemical in cannabis for industrial uses. Regulation like this clears the way for major regulatory agencies like the Food and Drug Administration and Drug Enforcement Agency toreclassifyCBD, but as it stands these two agencies still classify hemp-derived CBD as illegal, and there is no regulation controlling its production and distribution.

As such, many CBD products including pet-specific varieties can still contain foreign contaminants such as herbicides, pesticides, or heavy metals. In some cases, there isno CBD presentat all.

A big reason Cannabis products are increasingly heavily marketed to pets is their owners' efforts to avoid opioids and other remedies in favor of cannabis-based products. Resultingly,according to the Brightfield Group, sales have quadrupled from $8 million in 2017 to $32 million in 2018.

What exactly is at stake here? Hard to say, but money's a good first guess. The entire industry of Hemp-Derived CBD-based products is projected to reach $22 billion by 2020 with $1.16 billion being gobbled up by pets in needlike Luke Skybarker. Many "Dog Oil" salesmen have come out of the woodworks to capitalize on this unclear regulation by selling low-quality or fake cannabis-based pet products.

How does it help your pet?

CBD targets the endocannabinoid system of humans and pets alike. This special system is integral to regulating many functions of the body including the central and peripheral nervous systems and in other peripheral organs. Like with humans, enthusiasts are looking at it as a cure-all for your pet's ailments. The endocannabinoid system is considered so integral bodily harmony (also knows as homeostasis) thataccording to thePharmacol Review, "Modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and pathological conditions ranging from mood and anxiety disorders to movement disorders." In layman's terms, introducing foreign cannabinoids into the endocannabinoid results in regulation of the system and in part, this system helps regulate and maintain other bodily systems.

How do I safely shop for pet products?

First, you must live in area where recreational cannabis is legal. Second, do your research and look for a company that's subject to your local cannabis regulatory division testing. But this is a legal requirement so you can assume, for the most part, these dispensaries are holding up their end and therefore aren't shut down!

While we wait on regulations to clear up so we can offer safe and legal pet products, The Green Solution offers other fur baby accessories at great prices.

Quick Fact

Curing Cannabis Plants- This very gradual drying process involves moderate humidity and mild temperatures, preserving the dimensionality of cannabis plants and the consumption experience. The better and more gradual the curing process, the more sophisticated a grower's yields become, including preserved aromas, flavors, and potency.
