We’re celebrating Hanukkah with 8 gifts of cannabis knowledge – a new one every day!

Just as more and more people are realizing the potential wellness benefits of CBD, pet owners are sharing the secrets of CBD with their pets. In fact, the demand for CBD pet products continues to grow.

While their humans are using CBD for anxiety, pain, nausea, and to help with relaxation and sleep, pets may get similar benefits from CBD. When pets hear sudden noises, suffer travel or separation anxiety, as well as skin, joint, and appetite issues, and other conditions CBD may be a big help for coping and healing.

“Pets respond really well to cannabis medicine,” says Three Wells Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Deborah Malka. “There’s an immediate direct response.” 

There are hundreds of CBD-infused pet products on the market today that come in a variety of the most popular flavors, including steak, chicken, peanut butter, bacon, and cheese, etc. and come in varying forms such as soft chews and biscuits.

But if your pet is finicky, or maybe accustomed to only eating one type of treat, then a pet CBD tincture like this one from VETCBD could be a wise choice. It’s the most common way for pets to ingest CBD, Dr. Malka says. “You can put a few drops right in their mouth.”

For those of you celebrating Hanukkah or celebrating the whole holiday season, we hope these “gifts” provided you with new knowledge about CBD and cannabis. We at Three Wells hope you have a safe, happy and relaxing holiday!
