Why You Shouldn’t Give Your Pets THC With Riley Kirk, PhD

CBD is great for your pet. It can also provide them with a host of benefits similar to the way it impacts humans. We at Arbor Vita8 even have a section of our shop catalog dedicated to bringing relief to our furry friends. But it’s important to note that not all cannabinoids are equal in this regard. In fact, giving your pets THC can actually be a detriment to their well being.

There are a ton of contributing factors, which our good friend Riley Kirk, PhD also discusses in this latest clip. Read on to learn more!

THC Vs CBD for pets

“Here’s why its not recommended for you to give your dogs high THC Cannabis:

  • Dogs have an endocannabinoid system.”
  • Unlike humans though, they have a higher count of cannabinoid receptors in their brain.
  • Consuming THC can lead to “[disorientation, loss of] bladder control, and [they] can even experience static ataxia,” causing momentary paralysis.

Thankfully, THC is likely non lethal to your pet. Even smaller amounts could have a possible positive effect. Like Riley, we advocate speaking to your vet and getting their okay before letting your pet ingest any. On the other hand, with the proper quality control, CBD is always a safe bet .
