What You Should Know About Medical Marijuana for Pets

Be sure to consult your veterinarian first

Now that 23 states have given medical marijuana the green light (with even recreational use now allowed in another four states and Washington D.C.), growing weed has become a growing business. The newest frontier: getting Fido and Fluffy on board with the cannabis revolution.

Relax. We’re not talking about rolling doobies with your dog, or seeing “pretty colors” with your cat. Nope, these are cannabis-containing edible treats and capsules that are meant for sick or aging pets.

Kansas House passes bill on marijuana penalties, medical use

The Kansas House passed a bill Thursday that would decrease penalties for marijuana possession, allow the limited production and sale of hemp oil and study uses for industrial hemp.

The House also passed a compromise on green energy policy, and lawmakers considered new tax proposals as they seek ways to fill a budget gap of about $422 million before the close of the session.

The chamber's 81-36 vote Thursday sends the marijuana bill to the Senate for consideration. First- and second-time marijuana offenders without serious prior convictions would avoid jail time under the measure. That would decrease the population in the state's overcrowded prisons and save more than $1.7 million over the next two fiscal years, according to state estimates.

Consolidating and cashing in on medical marijuana

Marijuana legalization is likely far off in New Mexico, but you wouldn’t know it from the way some businesses are acting.

Recent news of a Canadian company’s encroachment into Santa Fe spawned backlash from those critical of an out-of-state, out-of-country company attempting to get a piece of New Mexicos’ medical marijuana industry.

Last month, Toronto-based Nutritional High announced that it would be acquiring 51 percent of shares from and assuming management operations of Sacred Garden, a Santa Fe nonprofit medical marijuana producer that’s been operating for nearly five years.

The plan drew immediate backlash from patient advocates and others in the industry.

DisposaBowls Crafting - Convenience for Consumers

Let’s face it: it is hard to be a cannabis consumer on the go. Federal prohibition makes it difficult to travel with your cannabis pipes; and even if it was legal on the federal level, would you trust your pipe with the TSA? Most people wouldn’t, and neither would Lauren Ely, CEO of disposaBowls.

DisposaBowls is a company based in Colorado that makes, you guessed it, disposable pipes for the cannabis consumer on the go. In its first iteration, the disposaBowl is a heavy cream colored pipe that bears a striking resemblance to a valve or gasket. On the front end of it is a child-safe cap that keeps your cannabis fresh and the tell tale smell out of your pockets, which is a huge plus for the discreet cannabis consumer.

But that’s recreational cannabis; this report is about medical cannabis and here, again, Uruguay seems to be setting the pace: it was the first nation in the world to fully legalise the research and development, as well as cultivation, distribution, sale and consumption of non-synthetic cannabinoids and hemp.
