That the problem and not just for pets being the problem, but stuff on market is pretty much is to fool people out of money and not as it seems and on false claims. Instead of repeating, I just copied what I wrote earlier.

The real stuff with THC may, or may not has some medicinal benefits, but depends on how it was processed as no FDA or processed in an FDA approved facility. The stuff available at most shops are made from a different plant species than “medical marijuana".

It the same issue that causing the vape deaths, it not the nicotine products for the most part, but the illegal vape THC cartridges causing the deaths as Vitamin E acetate is sometimes used to dilute THC oil in vape cartridges. As it get the greasy vitamin E acetate in their lungs. It to cut corners pretty much. That what you have to worry about.

The different between Hemp, or Marijuana? Yes the CBD with less than 0.3% THC level is the stuff you see everywhere flooding the market.

Although marijuana and hemp can both come from the cannabis sativa family, they're distinctly different. Marijuana is bushier with broader leaves, while hemp is leaner with shinier leaves. It's differences in their chemical composition that really set them apart, though. More than 100 chemical cannabinoids are found in cannabis, but the amount of these cannabinoids differs dramatically between hemp and marijuana. Marijuana's most common cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) -- the chemical cannabinoid associated with the plant's psychoactive effect. In marijuana, THC levels can reach 30%, depending on the strain, but THC levels in hemp are less than 0.3%.

The low levels of THC in hemp mean that, unlike marijuana, it has historically been used for industrial purposes. Hemp's rapid growth and strong fibers made it ideal for crafting durable rope, clothing, sail, and paper.
Although hemp won't get you high to sum it up.

Compared with other myths, this one is exceptionally perilous and potentially dangerous. Let’s start with the fact that although the CBD itself is being better researched every week, and the results are promising, it is nowhere near to being recognized as a medicine on its own? Second, the studies concern pure CBD, not CBD oils, or hemp/cannabis/marijuana as such (though many studies of the latter do attribute some of their subjects’ effects to CBD). Any medical statements in line of “CBD hemp oil heals this or that”, are not only cynically foraging on the hopes of consumers, they are simply illegal! This issue is so sad — as a result of irresponsible marketing (also whisper campaigns), often based on horrendous statements like “CBD oil cures cancer”, the whole market, including honest manufacturers, could suffer.

Most the CBD hemp oils available in shops and shelf everywhere pretty much have nothing to do with medical marijuana. Firstly: they are made from a different plant species than “medical marijuana”. Second: only a very specific form of cannabis (unpollinated female inflorescences) can be called “marijuana.” Last, but not least, even marijuana itself and „medical marijuana” are two very different things, the latter being, of course, subject to dozens of strict regulations. We can see, then, that the CBD hemp oils are three major degrees of separation away from the „medical marijuana”: different species, different preparation, different product class — comparing it with medical marijuana, is like calling a Orange a Apple yes both are fruits, but clearly not the same.

Where medical marijuana market is well regulated, then you have real medical-grade CBD oils available — such oils are made from plants used to obtain medical marijuana, and meeting the purity requirements for pharmacological products and that stuff offer benefits everything else you have to be careful as not regulated and you will then have quacks and frauds of all sorts are trying to cash in consumers’ naivety and good will, advertising CBD hemp oils as universal panacea, and making irresponsible medical statements. Now with all that stated, so good for keeping it simple? I won't recommend for birds as still a lot of unknowns for humans as no real standard set in place yet?
