(Grant Hindsley for Leafly)

Along with humans, animals of all sorts have their own endocannabinoid systems that can benefit from the introduction of hemp-CBD. Though THC is never a good idea due to its negative health effects—like exasperating a dog’s anxiety despite its safety for people—CBD can act as a calming agent, soothing pet stress without the nasty side effects.

Never introduce THC into your pet’s routine. Instead, opt for these CBD treats and tinctures that will come in handy once the fireworks light up or that damn car alarm just won’t shut off.
