If marijuana or CBD is helpful for some people, can it help my pet too?
Marijuana, also known as Cannabis Sativa, is a plant which contains as many as 113 compounds. In the cannabis plant, both THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) can be found to varying degrees. THC is considered a psychoactive substance, which means that it is a chemical that changes how the brain functions. It can consequently cause alterations in perception, mood, consciousness or behavior. Lately, CBD has been getting more and more attention for its potential therapeutic and pain management effects.
The Legal Perspective
Even in states where medical marijuana is legal for people, it is not legal for pets. CBD is regulated by the FDA and currently, there are no FDA-approved CBD products available for pets. However, in 2018, hemp, a cannabis plant that naturally has less than 0.3% THC, was taken off the federal controlled substances list. Since then, many companies have begun marketing “ hemp-based products” for pets to skirt the current legal status of marijuana and CBD for pets. It’s important to note that since these products are not FDA approved, they do not undergo the same quality control measures as medications do, which could potentially prove to be problematic.

My Special Cat
Most of us have had that special cat—a heart cat with whom we had a deep connection. It may have been the cat we had as a child, or the one that saw us through a troubled time, or one with whom we bonded as we exhibited at cat shows. Whether the cat found us or we sought it out, those connections cannot be denied. These are the stories of some of those special cats and what they mean or meant to us.
Names. Oh, what an important choice in the life of cat! It is how a cat will be known in the show rings and in daily life. A name can alternate between words of delight or new forms of cursing (especially in this case!). Each name tells a story and this is the story of Toxicate Holy $#&@*
