In an interview this week the host asked, “Who benefits from Marijana?” I candidly replied, “Well, everyone”, I quickly realized that I did not give this drug the clout it deserves so I started to explain the “New Face of Cannabis”. I told him mothers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, co-workers, and children are all benefiting from this plan. He still didn’t react so I took a step back and offered to tell him a story.
I told him about Sassy. My SASSY.
Sassy is my 8-year-old black pug. I actually sold one of my mom’s coats on e-Bay to pay for her since I was a broke college student. (I guess I’ve always been an entrepreneur). When I picked her up she was 12 weeks old and just 3 pounds. When I put her in the car, she was shaky and unsure of her new momma. I decided to sing to her. She looked at me, cocked her head side to side like she was listening and tried to get closer to my mouth; it was love at first sight.

As a baby, Sassy was skinny, awkward, rambunctious, loving, sometimes spiteful, and attached to my hip. About 6 weeks ago Sassy’s health took a turn for the worse. She was hanging her head low, rarely getting out of bed, and her legs gave out every time she tried to go potty. I was devastated. She has been by my side every day for the last 8 years. So, I did what any doggie mother would do and I took her to the vet. I also called a good friend in the cannabis industry. My choices came down to trying a CBD product or giving her Rimadyl, which would harm her liver and kidneys, I chose the non-harmful drug with zero side effects, CBD.
Within a week Sassy became that awkward little puppy I got. She is social again, has some major pep in her step (I mean her name is Sassy), her neck is mobile again, her skin and fur are healthier, and her back legs are strong. For mothers day this year, I got Sassy back.
Happy Mothers Day! I just wanted to share with you how CBD changed our quality of life. Sassy is now a happy camper except when Brutus photobombs her.
