They have amazing resources for veterinarians AND the public. If you are in a state that has not legalized cannabis, this is an excellent site for getting reliable information.
  • Treatibles - In 2013, this company was first to market back for CBD treats and supplements for animals. They have wonderful products your animals will LOVE!
