Has anyone used hemp for pet pain instead of narcotics?
Morphine is no less 'natural' than THC and hundreds of times more effective.
I'm going to look into it more, just wondered if anyone had a personal pet experience with it.
My almost 13 year old dog is just getting arthritic hips, twice daily she's getting dasquin advanced.
She's also had laser therapy on her hips, which made a difference in her walking, but was expensive.
Cannabis doesn't really do jack shit for pain, in spite of what the pr-pot crowd would have you believe. I'm not exactly a crusader against pot smoking, but you just gotta tell it how it is instead of how you think it should be. The best it can do for joint pain is help you forget that you're supposed to be miserable, and it works pretty good for that.
I had a dog, a cat and 2 ferrets in my lifetime who liked getting stoned. An equal number of pets didn't care for it at all, though this may have simply been the result of assholes blowing smoke in their faces.
Eating cannabis won't have much effect unless it is cooked for a few minutes first in some sort of oil or other fat. If you decide to try using it for the dog, I recommend that you sautee a gram of reefer in 3 or 4 tablespoons of butter. You can then mix the butter with whatever the dog likes to eat. For a mid/large sized dog like a Labrador, I would expect that to be good for about half a dozen doses or so. It's gonna smell the place up no matter how careful you are, so look into the local laws beforehand.
It's not going to kill your dog or injure him in any way even with a massive overdose, so it won't hurt to try. It could well be that it works pretty damn good. Just don't be too surprised or disappointed if he just falls asleep an hour or 2 later and your house still smells like a Grateful Dead concert minus the ripe odor of unwashed hippy.
