Pet Owners Turn to CBD as Treatment
According to reports, residents of San Diego have been turning to an alternative way to treat their pets. Hemp Health Inc. is trying to alleviate some of the emotional and financial stress of a suffering pet by offering products designed to decrease pain, control seizures and reduce inflammation. While that has some people jumping for joy, there are others who are hesitant to embrace the caring gesture.
For many people, their pets are a cherished part of their family that could never be replaced. Their furry friends’ health is just as important as their own or their children’s, prompting them to sometimes pay extremely high prices for veterinarian care and services out of love and concern for their pets’ comfort. Now, there’s another answer.
Hemp Health Inc. is dedicated to providing a range of affordable CBD-rich hemp items that are lab-tested, non-GMO and contain no pesticides, solvents, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Though they offer a variety of hemp products from oils to salves to powder suitable for humans, when it comes to pet health, they have nutritional capsules and three different oral sprays.
Each products comes with a nutritional label that shows exactly how many milligrams of CBD are in each serving and all the ingredients, which are all safe for pet consumption. Katarina Maloney, the vice president of Hemp Health Inc, proudly assures wary customers that their pets will be safe from experiencing any psychoactive effects.
“You cannot get high from our products at all,” Maloney said. “Our oil is made from industrial hemp, where there is no THC in our product.”
Veterinary anesthesiologist Amber Hopkins of the San Diego County Veterinary Medical Association acknowledges the healing properties of CBD, noting that it may be helpful for pets.
“I think that there has been shown to be a lot of potential for cannabinoids to be very beneficial in animals for management of various things like epilepsy, pain management, anti-nausea,” she said, before adding that she feels there should still be more research.
