How to Talk to Your Pet About CBD

Hello, floof! How's my fuzzy floof doing? Are you the bestest, fuzziest, floofiest floof in the world? Yes, you are!

Guess what?! I've got a special for you tonight! You know how you like those nutritious treats from the puppy store so much? Well, I found a new treat that's supposed to be the healthiest treat of all for humans AND floofs! It's called CBD and it comes from cannabis - but don't worry, it won't make you high like the one time you accidentally ate that weird gummy.

You see, all mammals like you and me have endocannabinoid systems. This means that when we consume CBD and other cannabinoids that come from cannabis, they interact with receptors in our brains and bodies and improve our overall wellness and balance. THC is a cannabinoid too, but that's the one that makes you feel funny. Don't worry, there's such a small amount of it in CBD oil that you won't even know it's there!

I know that sometimes I give you healthy "treats" that don't taste like treats at all and you don't like them very much. You might not like the taste of this stuff either at first, but I PROMISE it's so good for you that it's worth it. And just because I want my floof to be happy, I'll give it to you with a piece of cheese since I know it's your favorite. <3

With love and ear scratches,

Your Human
