As CBD rapidly evolves as an industry, additional studies are being conducted by scientists to learn more about what makes each compound in hemp so unique. Now, we know that pets can consume CBD just like us and that their bodies process it in practically an identical manner. Therefore, unsurprisingly, the CBD pet market is booming.

But what exactly is
CBD for pets? What makes CBD-infused pet products so different from the ones
that are marketed toward humans? How does one even begin their pet on a CBD
regimen? In this article, we answer each of these questions.

What Exactly is CBD for Pets?

Is it the same variety of compounds that we take as CBD consumers ourselves? The answer, quite simply, is yes. CBD-infused pet products contain the same hemp-derived compounds consumed by humans. However, CBD pet products have unique formulations designed specifically for pets.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Science has taught us
that every mammal has what’s called an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This
unique internal system utilizes self-produced cannabinoids (endocannabinoids)
to help the body maintain a constant state of homeostasis. It achieves this via
specialized cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body. 

Endocannabinoid
receptors help regulate crucial bodily processes, such as mood, temperature,
inflammation levels, pain, and so much more. If the body struggles to produce a
sufficient number of cannabinoids, any number of these bodily processes could
potentially be negatively effective. 

Consuming phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids originating in plants) could potentially give the endocannabinoid system an additional boost. CBD is just one of the many phytocannabinoids naturally produced by the hemp plant. Hemp is additionally saturated with terpenes, which may have other applications.

Types of CBD Pet Products

Now, you’re probably
wondering what types of CBD products are out there for cats and dogs. Below are
some of the most popular options available on the market today.

  • Treats: CBD-infused treats are edibles explicitly formulated for cats and dogs. 
  • Oils: CBD-infused pet oils are highly versatile, as they can be applied topically, as a tincture, or ingested. Oils can easily be mixed in with your pet’s food or administered sublingually (under the tongue).
  • Topicals: CBD-infused topicals for pets are most often available in spray form, as this helps the formula absorb beneath the fur. Topical sprays are great for localized issues as the compounds in hemp absorb through the skin quickly, and can even reach the muscle and joint tissue beneath.

How Can You Choose the Right CBD Product for Your Pet?

So, now that you know
what’s out there, it’s time to walk you through the process of getting them
started on a routine. First, you need to know how to select the right product
for your specific pet.

Tip #1: Ask Your Vet

The first thing to do
is to consult with your veterinarian. Your vet will want to know if you’re
administering CBD to your pet, and may even be able to make suggestions
explicitly catered to your pet. 

Tip #2: Stick to Pet-Specific Products

Obviously, when
choosing a CBD product for your pet, make sure that the product was specially
formulated for them. Do not give your pet a CBD product intended for human
consumption only.

Tip #3: Keep Your Pet’s Size and Breed in
Mind

Choosing the right
milligram strength is vital, as this determines how much of the compound your
pet is receiving per dose. CBD pet companies typically state on the label which
milligram strength is right based upon the size of your pet.

Tip #4: Determine Why You’re Giving Your
Pet CBD

Also, it’s important to have a clear goal in mind when giving your pet CBD. Is there something specific that you’re trying to achieve, or are you just interested in potentially maintaining their health?

Tip #5: Keep Your Pet’s Preferences in
Mind

Inside knowledge of your
pet before choosing a product is key. For instance, if you know that they are a
picky eater, you may want to choose a product that has a robust meaty flavor to
mask the natural flavor of hemp.

How Can You Go About Starting Your Pet on a CBD Regimen?

Now, let’s talk about
beginning a regular CBD regimen.

Step #1: Start with the
Suggested Dose and Increase as Needed

We suggest starting
with the recommended dose for a couple of weeks. Afterward, you can decide if
you wish to increase (or even decrease) dose strength.

Step #2: Monitor Your Pet

Always closely monitor
your pet whenever you add anything new to their daily regimen.

Step #3: Be Consistent

Consistency is vital,
as CBD seems to function best with long-term use.

Step #4: Keep Your Vet
Informed

Let your veterinarian
know of any possible changes as your pet adjusts to their new CBD routine.

Knowledge is CBD Pet Power

Today, it’s easier than ever to find a variety of CBD products specially formulated for your pet. So, if you wish to begin your pet on a CBD regimen, we urge you to speak with your veterinarian to determine a routine that best suits them.

Maine’s First Month Of Legal Marijuana Sales Total $1.4M

Maine is seeing significant success in their recreational cannabis industry.

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Licensed cannabis retailers in Maine sold more than $1.4 million worth of marijuana products during the first month of legal recreational pot sales, according to data released by state regulators on Monday. Legal sales of adult-use cannabis began on October 9, nearly four years after voters approved recreational marijuana sales for adults in 2016.

On Monday, the Maine Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP) released sales data collected by Metrc, the state’s cannabis track-and-trace system, for October 9 through November 8. The figures for the first 31 days of legal sales showed that smokable forms of cannabis were the most popular products, making up 76% of revenue. Cannabis concentrates accounted for 14% of sales, while infused foods and drinks made up the remaining 10%. A total of 21,194 transactions were logged by cannabis retailers during the first month in business. Sales figures released by the state are preliminary in nature and have not yet been audited by state regulators.

“In comparison, Maine’s medical marijuana program—which includes eight licensed dispensaries, more than 200 stores run by medical marijuana caregivers and individual caregivers that operate out of their homes or embrace the delivery model—sold on average $9.4 million in medical marijuana on a typical 31-day month in 2019,” reported the Portland Press Herald. 

As legal sales of recreational marijuana launched on October 9, eight retailers had been licensed by the state to begin operations, although only six shops were ready to open for business on the first day, in part due to reported product shortages. By the first week in November, a total of nine adult-use cannabis retailers were open for business in the state.

Erik Gundersen, the director of the OMP, congratulated licensed cannabis retailers on the successful launch of licensed sales while facing the ongoing challenges of a global pandemic.

“While it is easy to focus solely on the numbers, it is important to note that the Office of Marijuana Policy’s primary objective is maintaining the high standard of public health and safety we have set for the adult use program,” Gundersen said in a press release from the OMP. “We appreciate the commitment our licensees have demonstrated to enact COVID protocols to ensure a safe launch and their continued commitment to these efforts in light of the recent spike in COVID cases in Maine.”

Even with only six shops open at market launch, retailers posted more than $250,000 in sales their first weekend in business. Gundersen said then that the robust opening was a credit to both retailers and consumers, who shopped despite restrictions put in place to help control the outbreak.

“Our retail store licensees went the extra mile to implement public health measures and control vehicle and pedestrian traffic visiting their establishments,” Gundersen said at the time. “Additionally, the respect and patience shown by consumers for these protocols and their willingness to wear face coverings and maintain social distancing was very encouraging.”

Maine legalized medical marijuana with a ballot initiative in 2013 that was supported by 62% of voters. That was followed by the legalization of marijuana for use by adults and regulated recreational cannabis sales with the passage of the Marijuana Legalization Act by voters in November 2016.

Assembly Committees in New Jersey Senate Advance Cannabis Bill

Legal cannabis is inching closer to becoming a reality in the Garden State.

Republished by Plato

Published

on

New Jersey made its way back in headlines when legislative Assembly committees in the state Senate advanced a bill to regulate legal cannabis within state lines and bring the new state industry to life. 

Of course, the last time New Jersey was being lauded for their recreational cannabis progress was earlier this month, when residents voted to make cannabis legal. Now, the state is faced with a task. Before legal cannabis can become a reality, regulatory processes must be there to keep things operating smoothly. 

Now, the Assembly Appropriations Committee has voted 7-4 to pass on A21, a plan to enforce and regulate social use. The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee passed S21, a mirror of A21, 8-4. In both Committees, the legal language was cleared to pass. 

A few things were already set in stone in the state’s cannabis code, including making the substance legal for those 21 and over. According to the new law, those of legal age could use and possess cannabis, a state commission can be formed to oversee the sale of cannabis. Now, the race is on to establish a way to regulate recreational cannabis. 

“We’ve got to get this done by the end of the year,” the legislation’s lead sponsor, Sen. Nick Scutari (D), was quoted as saying at the Assembly panel hearing regarding the bill. “If we don’t, we’re going to run into a myriad of other problems.”

It’s also an intentional move that there are two mirror versions of the bill passing through New Jersey legislation. 

“Our language will be different than what the Assembly has,” said Sen. Paul Sarlo (D), chair of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, “which will allow us to negotiate.”

A Greener Garden State

It’s not surprising that the Senate is taking such a liberal view of cannabis and jumping in to help regulate the new industry. The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee have already approved legislation that would reduce previous cannabis offenses and decriminalize cannabis. 

“The voters approved legalizing adult-use marijuana (earlier this month), so now it is time we decriminalize it so that folks in Black and Brown communities across the state do not continue to be disproportionately arrested for possession,” state Sen. Ronald Rice, D-Essex claimed in a statement. “Decriminalization is the long-sought remedy for rampant injustice in our state.”

While advocates remain optimistic about legal cannabis in the state, they also want to see the new program put into place with intention. As cannabis law is discussed throughout the state, there is pressure from the public to return cannabis profits to an equity program that would provide workforce training and loans to those negatively impacted by a war on drugs. 

“Even if the bill does not pass right now in its current form, the sky will not fall,” said Tauhid Chappell, a local journalist and cannabis advocate quoted during the public comment period of the legislation. 

One way or another, legal cannabis has reached New Jersey. It just remains to be seen how the state plans to regulate the budding industry.
