Pet CBD product promotions have become mainstream for Fourth of July. Cats and especially dogs that are terrified of loud fireworks are a real concern every year. Some pets will run away, which is always the worst-case scenario for the owner. Other pets will cower under the couch for weeks after—it’s just very stressful.
But let’s face it—these days it’s not just pets getting stressed. Apparently, a lot of humans would also like to run away and hide, and not just because of loud noises. When your pet is anxious, that’s stressful—and then when you’re stressed, it makes your pet upset—that’s a vicious cycle when no one is having fun.
In a 2017 study, the American Psychological Association said three out of four Americans reported feeling stress symptoms within the last month, and “45 percent reported lying awake at night, 36 percent reported feeling nervous or anxious, 35 percent reported irritability or anger, and 34 percent reported fatigue due to stress.”
CBD is gaining some supporters as an alternative treatment for anxiety. Just last week, lawmakers in Delaware voted to consider the addition of anxiety as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana certification.
