These pets won’t stay off the grass.
New York dogs and cats are turning to pot to deal with ailments like chronic pain and seizures — and just to mellow out after a long day walking for The Man, according to their owners and dealers.
“Phoebe is a little high-strung and it kind of takes the edge off her — like adults,” Long Islander John P. Delafuente, 37, told The Post of his cockalier’s habit for CBD-infused dog biscuits.
“She has a hard day in the city, a lot of noises, and other dogs barking. We recently started giving her biscuits and she just chills,” he said.
Big Apple stores peddling CBD, or cannabidiol — a compound found in marijuana that’s separate from THC, the part of pot that makes you high — say pet owners are now jonesing for treats infused with the substance, which has been touted as a remedy for anxiety and pain in both humans and their four-legged friends.
Ronnie Almani, the owner of West Village CBD store Hemped, says his CBD-infused chicken biscuits and steak bites are flying off the shelves.
One regular customer is 10-year-old Brooklyn chihuahua Ella, whose owner claims the wacky-tobacky product has cured her of seizures.
“CBD saved my dog’s life,” gushed Abbie Kreber, 24, as the pot-loving pooch chilled out in her arms.
“She was having two 10-minute seizures a week and I’ve only seen her have two seizures in the last year. I cannot tell people enough good things about CBD.”
But experts warn the science on Mary Jane munchies is still doobie-ous, and the market unregulated.
“I always tell people to use caution when giving these to their pets,” said Dr. Carly Fox, a critical care vet at Manhattan’s Animal Medical Center.
“We don’t know anything about it just yet. Veterinary research is just getting started on CBD and how it affects dogs and cats.”
CBD is legal, but the city Health Department earlier this year prohibited bars and eateries from serving food and drinks infused with the popular hemp plant derivative.
The city didn’t immediately respond to queries on whether the crackdown applies to dog treats.
