What You Should Know About CBD & Your Pets!

Most of us pet parents will do anything to keep our beloved animals stress-free, pain-free and comfortable. Medical and nutritional research has come a long way for our pets in the last decade, and more pet owners and veterinarians are turning to more natural alternatives to help their pets. One of these alternatives is CBD oil.

What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of the compounds found in the marijuana plant and has calming and pain-relieving benefits. CBD is not tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. THC is the compound found in marijuana that causes a “high feeling.”

Why Does It Matter?
Many pet owners have found success with using CBD based products with their pets if they suffer from joint pain, arthritis, and anxiety. By administering a low dose to their furry friends with oil in their food or treats, pet owners are experiencing a miracle. Pain relief and lower stress levels, where other medications have not been successful. CBD is a natural product that can be used for a prolonged period of time with minimal side effects.

Does Ren’s Carry CBD?
Ren’s along with all other pet retailers is currently not able to carry CBD oil and CBD products as we are not licensed by the Government to do so. With the legalization of marijuana in Canada, CBD will not be commercially available for retailers to sell. It will be controlled similar to the LCBO, and other government-licensed businesses.

How Do I Get It?
Talk to your pet’s veterinarian to find out if CBD is right for your pet and you can purchase it at a licensed facility.
For pet owners who are looking for a replacement for CBD, Hemp can be a good alternative. Hemp typically contains far less cannabidiol than CBD and is available at Ren’s!
