Can Dogs Get High?
Yes, dogs can get high a few different ways.
- Ingesting marijuana leaves/buds directly
- Ingesting food laced with marijuana (cookies, butter, etc.)
- Secondhand smoke
What happens if a dog eats marijuana? The dog gets high. And, if a dog ingests too much, then it could die. This video shows the marijuana effects on dogs and what you should do if your dog gets into your edibles.
Size plays a significant role in how cannabis effects dogs. If two dogs—one 8 years old, 75 pounds and the other 12 weeks old, 3 pounds—get into the same size stash, the smaller dog will have a different reaction than the larger dog.
Some dogs also become more “paranoid” after getting high; this is often shown by them panting and pacing. It’s a challenge because you can’t determine which dogs will have this reaction until they are high.
Below is a list of the affects of marijuana on dogs.
- Breathing problems
- Lower blood pressure
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- Loss of balance
- Urinary incontinence
