There have been a number of studies reporting the positive benefits of treating certain disorders in animals with cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. In fact, there are even CBD dog treats available at some dispensaries. However, although CBD may be beneficial for your pet, keep in mind that dogs, cats, and other animals and THC do not mix, and purposefully getting your pet high on THC is not cool, not funny, and could actually be life-threatening for your furry friend.
Even if you’re not hotboxing your pet, your dog, cat, or other domesticated animal could accidentally get into your stash and consume something infused with THC. Perhaps you’ve just returned from the dispensary with a bag full of edible cannabis goodies and you accidentally left them out on the couch. Maybe an errant nug strayed from the confines of your stash and made its way down to doggy level. No matter how it happened, it did, in fact happen. Your dog, cat, or other pet got into your marijuana stash and you’re terrified of what could happen.
Don’t panic! First and foremost, let’s determine what exactly your pet got into.
