Canadian pot company plans marijuana-infused dog treats
Fido should get to chill out too, right? A Canadian company has announced that it will sell dog chews containing cannabis extracts starting next year. True Leaf Medicine has been blowing up lately -- the company's value has expanded by multiple factors this year, thanks in part to a big infusion of cash investments, and the company sells marijuana-infused products in 1600 North American stores and 300 across Europe. The CEO of the company says that pet owners are looking for medicine for their pets as well -- something natural and effective.
The company already makes hemp-seed infused treats, so it has some experience making things that doggies will like. The actual dog treats that True Leaf wants to make will have cannabidiol in them, not THC, so they'll mostly just ease pain and calm pets down, rather than giving them psychoactive reactions like you get from smoking or vaping. Still, if your pet likes treats, who are you to say they're not getting high off of enjoying them, right? There's no exact word on when the treats will be available, so keep an eye out at your local dispensary sometime in the next year.
