Beware of scam CBD pet products! What you need to know

As CBD products have raced into the American consciousness in the past year, many have turned to the substance to ease their pets’ problems just as they have their own.

CBD, or cannabidiol, has grown wildly popular since its source, industrial hemp, was legalized in 2018. Still, many can’t always be sure the CBD products they buy for themselves and their pets are effective and trustworthy.

Reporting from the Associated Press shows that some purported CBD products meant to treat pet anxiety and other issues actually don’t contain any of the active ingredient.

“You’d be astounded by the analysis we’ve seen of products on the shelf with virtually no CBD in them,” Cornell University researcher Joseph Wakshlag told the AP.

“Or products with 2 milligrams per milliliter, when an effective concentration would be between 25 and 75 milligrams per milliliter. There are plenty of folks looking to make a dollar rather than produce anything that’s really beneficial.” [1]

The AP reports the CBD market is still projected to reach a value of $1.7 billion by 2023, according to the Brightfield Group. [1]

According to ABC affiliate ABC7 in Naples, one of the most important aspects of CBD consumption is understanding where your retailer buys their supplies and ensuring quality at every step of the process. [3]
