Minnesota pet store chain Chuck & Don's has started selling pain-relieving products for animals that contain cannabinoids.

The company announced Thursday that all 30 of its stores in Minnesota will start carrying "CBD pet products," which will include pet treats and oils.

CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a compound taken from the hemp and marijuana plants that can reproduce the health effects of the drug without the high.

That's because it contains only trace amounts of THC, another cannabinoid that causes psychoactive reactions when a person takes typical marijuana.

And because the products sold by Chuck & Don's use CBD taken from the hemp plant – and not its sister marijuana plant – it's legal in all 50 states.

CBD taken from marijuana can only be sold in states where the drug is sold legally, like Colorado and Washington.

Chuck & Don's says it's decided to stock the two product lines – Super Snouts and Pet ReLeaf – after seeing high demand for CBD pet products in Colorado.

The company says the products can be used to alleviate chronic pain and anxiety in pets.

“There’s a lot of excitement from pet owners to find a safe and effective option for chronic pain and anxiety that improves the quality of life for their pets," Minnesota veterinarian Dr. Elizabeth Parks said in the Chuck & Don's release.

"We cannot as veterinary professionals claim any health benefits due to the limited research of CBD and legal restrictions, but the experiences patients are having using CBD products is matching that expectation in a positive way."
