Willie Nelson, the country music legend and cannabis activist, is jumping onto the CBD for pets train.
His cannabis company, Willie’s reserve, is launching a line of CBD products for pets called ‘Willie’s Rescue.’
“As longtime animal advocates and pet owners, our family believes that the hemp plant has benefited our own animals,” Willie and his wife Annie Nelson said in a statement. “We want you and your best friends to experience the potential benefits of hemp together.”
There is still a lot to learn about the pros and cons of CBD use. While holistic experts recommend CBD to calm pets, there’s not enough data yet to decipher whether it is really helpful.
While veterinarians can legally prescribe CBD treatments to pets in California, the CBD industry is still in the process of getting the government at large on board with the safety of direct to consumer hemp product sales.
