DENVER -- Hemp is one of the world’s least understood plants. But, as more and more humans are benefitting from THC in cannabis, so too are pet owners.

Jessica LeRoux made THC infused treats for people in hospice care, when she saw how well the treats handled pain for those patients, she decided to see if small doses of hemp oil could help her own dog who was suffering from as she put it, “rickety hips”.

“All of my dogs over the years have not been healed, but their pain and suffering was eased by use of the oil in doggie treats,” said LeRoux.

In Denver, Murphy’s Dog Treats were a big hit at the High Times Cannabis Cup, and if you want to order infused bones on line, Canna Companions is a good company to order from.
