Every day is green day

I have two dogs. A beagle and a pot head. There. I said it. One of my dogs is hooked on marijuana. Worse yet, I’m her dealer! That’s right. The other day I slipped a few drops of CBD oil into my pup’s dinner and now she’s the black sheep of the family.

I hope it’s not just a gateway drug to something worse.

OK, OK, to be serious… this dog of mine has major allergies and for everything we’ve tried, we’ve come up short of solving the nagging problem. There are seasons of the year where it’s not too bad– maybe she scratches here and there throughout the day (still more than a dog ought to), but then there are weeks and months where she’s either sleeping or itching. It’s got to be frustrating for her, always scratching, nibbling her paws, rubbing her face in the carpet or grass.

I tried a pill the vet recommended and it worked, but there were only enough doses to last a couple weeks. I had also read reviews of this product and shuttered at the possible side effects.

I had been curious about CBD oil to help relieve the itching so it’s only been a couple days at this point, but I’m hopeful! I’ll update more when it’s had time to get into her system but I’m very much hoping that this will solve the problem for her. And if it does, Daddy might take a dose 😉
