Can CBD supplements help my aging dog? by Dr. Megan Buchanan

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)? The active ingredients in hemp and marijuana are called cannabinoids. The most widely recognized cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These compounds affect the body by binding to receptors in the brain and immune systems. Hemp-based products are the primary source of CBD supplements used by pet-owners, and these supplements lack the higher levels of THC that cause the “high” sensation seen with marijuana use.

"Daisy" by Kristin Boes

Beagle with tongue out and gray face.
I'd been wanting a dog for a while, and I'd pretty much decided on a senior dog for several reasons: 1 . We have three cats and I thought a younger dog would be too rambunctious for them. 2 . We aren't particularly active people, so something a little more mellow would work better 3 . I knew they were less likely to get adopted 4 . Honestly, I wasn't sure how I would wind up liking the work of a dog, so a two to five year commitment seemed smarter than 15-20.
