Pet food manufacturer Corey Nutrition plans to launch a line of cannabis-infused dog food when recreational cannabis becomes legal in October.

The food will be different from human cannabis edibles in one important way: it will not include THC, the psychoactive chemical found in cannabis that produces a high in the user, instead relying on CBD.

CBD can help ease anxiety and pain in dogs. “I’ve got a dog who is highly anxious in certain situations … things like certain floors he’s not OK with, thunder [and] lightning can be a problem for him,” said Emily Corey, the company’s vice president of research and development.
