Pet Food Express is selling Cannabidiol Oil (CBD) for jumpy pets, claiming that it canÂ helpÂ alleviate their tensions during the the upcoming boom of New Yearâ€™s Eve fireworks.
Owners donâ€™t need a medical marijuana card to purchase theÂ products.
â€śIt is not psychoactive and itâ€™s not marijuana-based. Itâ€™s hemp-based,â€ť explained Pet Food Express Spokesperson, Linda Loza. She explained that theÂ animalsÂ donâ€™t become â€śhigh.â€ť
Owners squirt the oil into their petsâ€™ mouths or feed them snacksÂ lacedÂ with the hemp extract.
Michelle Kay feeds the CBD snacks to her pit bull thatÂ has arthritis.
â€śI found that the CBD treats really help. Sheâ€™s less stiff going down theÂ stairs,â€ť said Kay.
Thereâ€™s also a product called Thunder Shirt being sold, which is supposed to calm dogs down similar to a baby being swaddled. Kyle Mueller says it works on his 75-pound pit bull Sassy.
â€śLike, Sassy needs a really tight fit. Iâ€™ve got to wrap her like a Burrito. Sheâ€™s really into it!â€ťsaid Mueller.
Owners are in on the calming products, since they want to make their pets asÂ comfortableÂ as possible on New Yearâ€™s Eve.
â€śSales are great! Itâ€™s probably the hottest product of 2018!â€ť said Loza.
