Mike Tyson, Cesar Millan training to enter CBD pet market
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Mike Tyson’s The Ranch Companies announced July 11 it has teamed up with Cesar Millan, a dog behavior specialist and TV personality, to develop a line of hemp-based pet treats with functional health benefits.
The treats will be formulated with pure hemp seed oil and CBD, as well as all-natural ingredients and added vitamins, according to Millan.
“With recent changes in legislation, CBD has gained popularity, and now people want to bring the benefits of this natural product to their pets,” noted Steven Krane, president of Cesar Millan Pet Treats. “The hemp and CBD space continues to gain traction, and going forward, we can expect to see more natural, healthy products come to market to help improve the overall lives of our four-legged family members.”
The joint venture will start with four products: Calming Soft Chews for reducing anxiety; Probiotic Soft Chews to aid digestion and support the immune system; Skin and Coat Soft Chews to “assist in preventing skin disorders;” and Support Soft Chews for to fortify joint and bone health.
Each formula will include antioxidants, omega-6 and omega-3.
Rob Hickman, CEO of The Ranch Companies, said the partnership will help to fill out the business’s product mix, “continuing to set us apart from other cannabis companies.”
Millan added, “I am delighted to have established this partnership with the Ranch Companies and Mike Tyson. My goal in life for my pets is for them to always feel safe and peaceful knowing that I love them. Their health is my number one priority, and this new line of pet treats will be a great addition to their diet.”
The Ranch Companies is a diversified cannabis company founded by Tyson and Hickman. Millan has starred on reality television programs including The Dog Whisperer, Dog Nation and Cesar 911.
More than 20 years ago, California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana, and in 2018 permitted recreational use of the fabled weed. Given marijuana’s success in alleviating human pain, stimulating appetite, or reducing anxiety, it was only a matter of time that its use would spread to our canine companions.
Medical marijuana states
As of 2017, 28 states have legalized medical marijuana, and 16 have legalized cannabidiol. Naturally, almost as soon as marijuana was made legal for medical use, people started to find loopholes in order to obtain it for recreational use, which has unfortunately obscured the fact that, for a lot of people with actual illnesses or conditions, marijuana is helpful.
What a lot of people may not realize is that there are over 400 “ingredients” in marijuana, and the one that gets people high is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But the previously mentioned cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive, meaning that it doesn’t make people high, and it seems to have anti-convulsive, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea, anti-rheumatoid arthritic, and sedative properties.
Weaving “Charlotte’s Web”
CBD started to gain national attention because of a now ten-year-old girl, Charlotte Figi. When she was five, her parents discovered that CBD oil greatly reduced her epileptic seizures and improved her quality of life without the side effect of getting a child stoned. This led to the creation of a strain with high CBD and very low THC called Charlotte’s Web, as well as the legalization of CBD, mostly in states that did not otherwise have legal medical marijuana.
Psychopharmacology is the field of medicine concerned with treating mental illnesses and conditions with psychoactive substances. While humans have been doing that for ourselves for as long as we’ve been human, as a medical practice, things really only got rolling in the 19th century, but for a long time nobody even considered the field of veterinary psychopharmacology.
It wasn’t until 2001 that Dr. Sharon Crowell-Davis created the first continuing education program on the subject, and she is also literally the person who wrote the textbook on it. For comparison, Prozac as an anti-depressant for humans was first sold in the U.S. in 1987. The canine version, Reconcile, wasn’t approved until January 2007, although veterinarians had been giving dogs human Prozac since the 1990s as a treatment for separation anxiety.
Alternatives to Prozac
One of the downsides to the class of drugs Prozac belongs to, SSRIs, is that they do come with side effects whether they’re being taken by dogs or humans, which is why people have started to turn to alternative treatments. Since CBD has been shown to have anti-anxiety effects in humans, it has started to find use as an alternative treatment for separation anxiety, as well as a way to calm down hyperactive dogs. Several companies have already started selling CBD-laced dog treats.
Because of its quasi-legal status, not a lot of studies have been done on the effects of medical marijuana on humans, much less on dogs. While canine versions of drugs like Prozac have been successful and there are similarities in brain chemistry between dogs and humans, there are many examples of things that people can eat without problems but which can be sickening or fatal to dogs.
At this point, we just don’t know enough to say whether CBD is harmless or not in long‑term veterinary use, although many pet owners have come to swear by it in the last few years. Another complication is that, unlike human doctors in medical marijuana states, veterinarians are not protected from prosecution for prescribing pot products to their patients so owners have had to resort to getting prescriptions for themselves in order to provide for their dogs.
While you can easily find “CBD-enriched” dog treats online, the American Veterinary Medical Association has yet to take a position on its effectiveness or safety for dogs. As with Prozac, safe pot for pups may lag several years behind human products, so exercise extreme caution before providing any marijuana products to your dog.
