There has been a lot of buzz in the protection dog world about the benefits of CBD. CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant. Nearly all of CBD supplements used for protection dogs are harvested from the hemp plant, not marijuana. Hemp plants contain a very minimal about of THC. THC is what produced psychoactive effects commonly associated with marijuana. CBD for protection dogs should carry 0.3 percents THC or less and will not produce any psychoactive effects. Protection dog owners need not worry about CBD having any of the commonly known effects of marijuana. In fact CBD supplementation has shown to have some significant health benefits for protection dogs and other high performance animals. Protection dogs have two types of endocannibinoid receptors.
