CBD
CHALLENGES
Hemp-derived cannabidiol is increasingly used as
an ingredient in pet treats and supplements.

The humanization of pets has it perks, dangers and
many unknowns. When out on the trails together, the
pet parent can nibble on the human-grade peanut butter
treats along with their furry companion. But, when
sitting back and chilling at the end of the day, the pet
parent better make sure no sips are snuck of that cold
hard seltzer. In fact, there are numerous substances approved
for human use and not considered safe for pets.
Chocolate and caffeine, for instance, are toxic to both
cats and dogs. Macadamia nuts are one of the most poisonous
foods for dogs, while tomato plants can be fatal
to cats. Then there's hemp-derived cannabis ingredients
showing up in all types of products.
" COVID accelerated the humanization of pets, "
said Bill Bookout, president of the National Animal
Supplement Council, Sun City West, Ariz. " At the end of
the day, pet parents want to accomplish the same thing
for their pets as for themselves, and that is to live a long,
happy, healthy life. "
That's where cannabidiols (CBD) enter the picture. In
December 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) recognized hemp-derived cannabis ingredients
with less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on a
dry weight basis and CBD as Generally Recognized as
Safe (GRAS) for human products such as tinctures and
extracts. The THC are psychoactive compounds, while
the CBD compounds are associated with relaxation,
pain relief, improved sleep, positive mood, better memory
and stress response.
This GRAS list does not
transfer to pets. Further,
the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act
(DSHEA) of 1994 also does not apply to animals. And
while hemp-derived CBD is not legally (at the federal
level) allowed in human foods and beverages, it is being
used in states that have approved marijuana, and it's
also being incorporated into pet treats and supplements
without any regulatory approval. And pet parents are
buying them.
AmericanMarijuana.org, an online medical marijuana
resource, surveyed 1,061 US CBD consumers in 2021
about their experience using CBD on their pets. Thirtyfive
percent of respondents said their vets advised them
to do so. Before administering CBD, 61% were worried
about its safety; however, after using it, 40% were no
longer concerned. Further, nine out of 10 indicated they
would recommend CBD for pets to others.
More than three out of five (63%) respondents said they
tried other medications before using CBD on their pets,
with 83% agreeing that CBD was more effective. An impressive
81% agreed that CBD was safer, but there remains
some confusion. Of the 92% of pet parents who often read
the labels on CBD products before purchasing it for their
pets, nearly one out of five (19%) indicated they were not
sure they understood the information on the label.
