According to data kept by cannabis industry analytics firm MJ Freeway, it's the newest trend in America's booming half-billion dollar animal supplements market, which is expected to grow by more than $150 million in the next four years.
CBD is one of over 80 active cannabinoid chemicals in marijuana, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD doesn't create a euphoric sensation. In other words, these biscuits won't get your dog high.
Academic research about CBD's effect on animals is nearly nonexistent, and the Food and Drug Administration has not approved marijuana use in animals. Despite this, some veterinarians recommend their use, and producers say pet stores are increasingly beginning to carry CBD treats.
"I'm excited BluDog is entering this growing space," Antonio Uccello said. "There are so many pet owners that would do just about anything to relieve their animals suffering."
“I was evacuating for Hurricane Irma with my Maltese, Ellie. She is not typically a good traveler under the best of circumstances, but was extra stressed in the stop and go traffic and I'm sure, was sensing my stress level as well. She whined and fussed non-stop for about two and a half hours so I decided to open up a gelcap and gave her about a quarter of it on a cracker. I would suggest peanut butter, but I didn't have any at the moment. In about 20 minutes, she relaxed and found a comfortable spot to enjoy the rest of the trip. It was a life saver for both of us.” Mindy
The Canine Chill Pill will be available for purchase online November 20th, 2017.
The Company will issue more details as they develop in subsequent press releases.
