The USA have discovered a new profitable fusing pets and drugs. Enough with balls, rubber bones, rattles and chewing toys; to enjoy our pets now it is possible to buy marijuana in four States, whereas the medical use of drugs is legal in 23 States.
Abc reported that this business is rapidly growing. In some toys and biscuits, for dogs there are products derived from cannabis, like cannabidiol – painkiller and anti-inflammatory, which does not daze patients.
“Cannabis contains many substances. Many people try it for the euphoric sensation caused by the THC. Nevertheless, no one pays attention to cannabidol, which is usually known as CBD and is not psycho-active,” explained Matthew J. Cote, manager of the enterprise in San Francisco that launched many hallucinogen products.
In addition, prices of pets’ products increased, a box of 40 sweets costs $22. Every piece contains 1mg of CBD, which is the suggested dose for a 10kg animal.
Although this business is travelling at the speed of light, fortunately, there is someone hitting the break. Food And Drug Administration underlined that researches on possible effects of drugs on animal need further studies, and ordered to stop the selling of capsules for dogs in a shop in Washington.
