Pot and your pets

Written by Richard Hack


For years now, states have been arguing about the medicinal potential of marijuana for treatment ailments. Many have made buying and selling pot legal for the treatment of any number of illnesses. And while your pets should never consume pot as a means of helping decrease physical pain, they can find legal relief in the word of hemp-based supplements from Canna Companion USA, a Washington company.

Canna Companion has created a unique blend of Cannabis sativa strains designed to enhance the medical benefits of the Cannabis plant while negating the ‘high-inducing’ capacity of THC. Each capsule of Canna Companion is free of corn, wheat, sugar, GMO, soy and is produced cruelty free.

Rather, every capsule contains a combination of phytocannabinoids, the main group of compounds in hemp, terpenes while help to modulate phytocannabinoids, and flavonoids, potent anti-inflammatories which are found in a wide variety of foods we and our pets eat.

In additions, the capsules offer omega 3 & 6 fatty and vitamin B6, the latter of which increase bioavailability.The vegetable-based capsules are produced in Washington State by veterinarians. Due in part to their small body size, dogs and cats can take advantage of small amounts of CBD, THC and other cannabinoids found in hemp.

Because the entire hemp plant is used, an increase in health benefits and a decrease in adverse effects are observed. This eliminate some of the adverse effects possible in dogs and cats who consume cannabis grown for human consumption.

The Canna Companion capsules support digestive processes and help maintain a healthy GI tract in cats and dogs. In addition, they help to support the immune system, and help to ease joint discomfort associated with daily exercise and activity.

The hemp-based capsules also help maintain an animal’s calm demeanor, including during time of unusual stress or situational anxieties. And no less important, in additional to neurological care, Canna Companion supplements can assist in “end of life” comfort and care.
