Verdino doesn’t expect the CBD pet care momentum to slow down. If anything, as legalization continues to sweep the nation, more and more customers will be inquiring about hemp for their house pets. “I think it’ll be easier to prescribe and recommend to clients. I think it all depends on where the research goes,” he says. It remains to be seen if there will ever be a firm pharmaceutical consensus on CBD, but also, who’s to say that will actually matter?
“Now I get the drops out whenever there’s a thunderstorm,” says Ramirez. “Our dog mellows out and lies down. That’s basically it. But given how nervous she gets during storms, that alone makes a big difference.”
And so, in December 2018, Weatherhead founded ZenPup, which advertises itself as a source for authenticated, ethically sourced CBD for pet owners across America. Every tincture, topical, or treat they sell comes with a Certificate of Analysis from the marijuana lab-testing firm Confident Cannabis, verifying that the product possesses no pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and perhaps most importantly, an infinitesimally tiny THC makeup.
“Basically, all the research says is that there needs to be more true, double-blind-type studies,” he continues. “Even most of those, with animals, are anecdotal. You can’t ask the pet how they’re feeling. We really need more objective studies.”

“Over the last year or so we’ve seen the stigma of cannabis, both THC and CBD, flip. There’s been a lot of media showcasing all of the healing possibilities of cannabis,” says Weatherhead. “And considering that it’s been in the human sector for a while, it’s given people the education that this is a really good, safe alternative. And there are proof points that it actually works.”
Ramon Ramirez is indifferent to the science because he is not necessarily a CBD believer. That’s not the point. Ramirez recalls how two of his elderly cats passed away in the past year and the way he dosed them up with CBD down the stretch. He believed that it helped with their pain, no matter how true it was.

Dogs and cats seem to be relaxing thanks to this compound found in marijuana, but the science so far is inconclusive.
“Veterinary science is frustratingly limited, and when a pet is sick, you resent not knowing exactly why. You expect Dr. House-level diagnostics and instead get basically a cortisone shot,” Ramirez says. “CBD drops may very well be a snipe hunt. The appeal is more direct control in helping animals.”
