Things to consider when
buying CBD oil for your dog
CBD products are rapidly gaining in popularity with dog
owners for a wide variety of reasons. Because these products are becoming
so popular, some companies are taking shortcuts in making
their products. If you aren’t careful, you may get ripped off or worse,

people to feel high. THC can be dangerous for pets. It is best to avoid
hemp oils containing THC. Fortunately, the compound can be removed
from hemp oil through sophisticated manufacturing processes,
but not all hemp oil products are made this way.
