Happily the FDA is NOT in charge of anything CBD in NEVADA and THE MAJORITY of the other states via states rights, concerning CBD etc.

I post the results of my own research and experiences in this thread. Since no one posting negative thoughts about CBD, has shown ANY experiences or research (outside of the few misleading FDA statements) to back up that negativity; there is no credence to those negative posts.

Scare tactics are not what this is about.
ie: CBD gets our dogs stoned, which is debunked rubbish at best, meant to frighten!

The utter hypocrisy of the FDA is clearly shown by the patent(s) currently held by the USA with regard to CBD as a medical treatment. To accept this type of baloney would set a very dangerous precedent in the modern world of today.




Calling other people's opinions stupid (CBD or otherwise, without supporting proof) are not what this is thread all about. It's all about POTENTIAL POSITIVE alternatives for our dogs, and not about censorship!

I and a few others, have shared our positive experience with our dogs, but to date, there have been zero negative experiences with CBD posted on GRF, that I am aware of. ALL EXPERIENCES, both positive and negative should be presented for people trying to decide whether to try CBD for their dogs or not.

This is a prime example of why the internet is dangerous for certain individuals and why people should be licensed to use it. People who have no idea what they are talking about or have an agenda right these articles with no background in understanding of what's really going on thinking they know what experts or governing bodies know. Other people read it and it takes them down a rabbit hole of misconceptions. Those readers are then locked into to one thought and everything/everyone else is wrong and be ****** or can't think for themselves to see it their way. Sounds like a Fox News viewer honestly.

I ran out of popcorn, gonna make more before this show is over! :D

So this is one breed, and most people likely don't even know this is available for their dogs so the exposure is likely almost nil. How many breeds are there? and not all have a resource/venue like this for their breeds and the GRF doesn't have a huge user based compared to the number of households that have a Golden. Also, Mutts, there are really no venues like this either. so you're going to take a sample size of what .00001% of dog owners on this site as the reason there have been no side effects?

I need more popcorn in a hurry!

The information and videos that I posted are of numerous breeds., not just Goldens, Border Collies, Aussies etc.
Goldens are still classified as dogs.

The few attempts to derail this thread, that is meant to allow people to think for themselves, and make informed decisions concerning treating their OWN dogs, without being intimidated by ill informed and misleading non-information, is simply unacceptable by any stretch.

Anything positive or negative ( Factual or experience wise with examples, not opinions meant to mislead others.) concerning CBD and ANY dog is surely welcome, and was never discouraged.

For me- I don't have positive or negative experiences to post re CBD because there is no way I would give to my dogs. I suspect I am not alone. Until it has testing- which the FDA is in charge of- and years of anecdotal experiences behind it, I suspect no one else will use it either unless they are desperate and fall into the hole you have dug.

Honestly, I am not trying to derail it. I just wonder why you say you want people to think for themselves and do their own research when you obviously have an agenda to push this on people. And when there are things like the FDA which know 1000 fold more than you do, you tell people to ignore it because it is going against what you are PUSHING on people. If you had no agenda you wouldn't be making 1000 word posts with link after link every other post.

I am beginning to think you are in this business, growing or selling. The only reason I can think of that you push this so hard.

"One needing a license to be on the internet??????????
YIKES!"

This was obviously in jest/sarcasm

PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE FOR THEMSELVES......AFTER VIEWING WHATEVER INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE.
It is NO ONE's business to tell them not to or to attempt to instill fear in those that try.
People DO NOT have the right to attempt to influence anyone with their lack of knowledge, on CBD or otherwise.

Perhaps the reason that there has been no adverse news about people treating their dogs with CBD is because there isn't any!! :)

The worst that I have been able to locate, was that CBD did nothing to help a particular dog, but nothing to indicate damage of any kind.

The only way that some people will get a reality check, is to watch what happens abroad in countries with progressive governments, that don't stifle research (currently like Israel), where US drug companies have the green light to proceed with CBD testing, and distribution.

As it stands..people that think CBD should be illegal still are VERY MUCH in the MINORITY!, as are the few states that still ban it for medicinal use. No one is trying to change those minds!

Some more information that basically says the same things as sources above..NO ADVERSE effects from CBD with dogs treated with a normal dose..ANYTHING overdone will have negative reactions, and it is up to us as responsible owners to dose properly, as with any other pet medicine!
