If you’ve ever wanted to (responsibly) treat your dog to the benefits of cannabis, ZenPup has your back. The startup, which launches today, is the newest entry into the intersection of pet ownership and cannabidiol (CBD) use.
ZenPup, started by pet owners themselves, aims to “not only look out for our dog’s health, but their happiness and well being.” That desire led them to create CBD-infused products from natural and organic products. The three products released on its siteâ€”HAPPY, CLEAN, and GOODIESâ€”are a calming spray, a dry shampoo, and peanut butter-flavored treats, all with the added bonus of that CBD chill. ZenPup’s products range from $25 to $40.

The founders created the products with the hope of making dogs’ lives a bit better and alleviating symptoms of everything from anxiety to natural issues that come along when dogs age. Much like human use, the way CBD affects a dog is really a case to case basis, but the company states, “Each and every ZenPup product is designed to nourish, heal, and positively impact your pup.”
But don’t confuse giving your dog CBD with actually getting your dog high. That is unsafe and ultimately your pup has no idea what’s going on. But if a dry shampoo helps your best friend’s joints move a bit more easily, then that’s a win for both our species.
