CBD has become increasingly popular in recent years for helping people of all ages (and now dogs) with their medicinal needs. Extensive research on CBD and pets shows us just how CBD may benefit their lives overall.

CBD for pets may serve as natural alternatives to medications to treat symptoms for a host of conditions and diseases such as anxiety and cancer. Most times, dogs get prescribed medication that may be difficult to administer to them and may give off negative side effects. However, now with the versatility of CBD, many different products have emerged making medication for dogs a breeze; Not to mention that there are absolutely no side effects to worry about!


CBD is usually given to pets orally, but it is imperative to know the correct dosage for your pet. Dosages vary by the size of the pet and its specific condition. The highest risk of CBD for pets is the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is what gets cannabis users high. However, many products have very little to no THC at all so if taken responsibly, there should be no risks for your pet. It is always recommended to talk to a veterinarian before giving CBD to your pet.

Giving your pet CBD oil might be a good option for you, but if you are anticipating that it may be difficult to administer, then we have a solution for you. Growing demand for a better way to give CBD to pets has resulted in many different CBD-infused products tailored for dogs. A variety of dog foods and treats allows for you to treat your dog without having to fight with them to take their medicine.

Before getting CBD for your pet, it is important to know what exactly is in the CBD product. A lot of companies use imported goods that may not go through the same regulatory procedures as we have in the United States so it is suggested that you conduct brief research. Medix CBD is a reputable vendor that provides extensive lab tests so you know exactly what you are giving your pet. Here are a few things to look out for when deciding where to get your CBD.


  • Where is their hemp cultivated?
  • You want to make sure that the hemp is grown in the US to avoid any regulatory issues.
  • How is the CBD extracted?
  • Some companies use butane and harmful chemicals to extract their CBD, resulting in possible toxic residue in the products.
  • Make sure your CBD is organic
  • If it is not organic, chances are that is contains pesticides and other harmful chemicals that you don't want to give your dog.
  • Request the lab analysis
  • Ask the company for the lab analysis for their CBD. That will tell you the exact amount of everything that is in your CBD product.

Many veterinarians are not completely familiar with CBD so their advice coupled with your research on CBD can help you make the best decision concerning your pet. We know that your pet's health most important so checking these things will ensure that you are giving your pet the best quality products.

If you decide to seek CBD treatment for your pet, it is recommended that you keep record of how your pet is behaving before, during, and after treatment. CBD reacts differently for anyone so you may need to see how your pet reacts to it so you know whether to cut back or to increase the dosage. Video recording of your pet is a perfect way to analyze the results since sometimes human memory can be a bit misleading.

In the end, CBD treatment for dogs has shown promise for a better natural health solution. Extending the benefits of CBD to pets is one of the best ways to increase their quality of life. Sometimes life can be ruff, but with CBD it doesn't have to be.

Somehow, I Ended Up With The Best Roommate Known To Man

I've truly been blessed.

College can be a very stressful experience to prepare for. From orientation to selecting your classes for the semester, your responsibilities quickly pile up. On top of all that, you also have to find somebody who you will be sharing a room with for your first year of college.

After not sharing a room with my sister for several years, I was worried about going back to splitting a living space with someone else. Immediately after I finished submitting my application to finalize my commitment to Temple, the stress of finding a roommate sunk in. Rooms in the residential hall I wanted were filling up quickly, and I still didn't have a roommate.

I was trying to find a roommate, but everybody seemed to already have their living situation figured out. However, one day, I received a message from a girl named Tori. Little did I know, she would become my best friend. I saw her profile prior to on RoomSync, an app for finding roommates, so I was really excited when she messaged me.

We didn't meet until move-in day, which made me a little bit anxious, but right from the start, everything clicked. We have lots of similar interests and living standards. Even though our majors are totally different, hers being biology and mine is English, that didn't stop us from being friends and enjoy spending time with one another.

In just the first weekend, Tori discovered that I hadn't seen a lot of movies that I should have seen growing up. From that point on, she created a list of various movies, and every weekend we watched at least one movie together. I don't think she has shown me a movie that I haven't liked yet, and I'm so glad that we started this tradition.

On top of movies, Tori has also expanded my music taste, which is a very hard thing to do. I couldn't be happier that she introduced me to Dean Lewis and Noah Kahan and then persuaded me to go to their concert in October with her. In general, she has got me more into music and is increasing my knowledge about music overall.

As well as going to a concert together, we also recently went to see my favorite Youtubers when they came to Philly. When we found out that Cody Ko and Noel Miller were going on a comedy tour and coming to our city, we immediately planned to buy tickets. It was a night full of laughs, and I'm so happy I got to spend it with her.

Tori Ploesch

Having a random roommate who is also your best friend is rare. I've heard a lot of horror stories about random roommates, but I honestly can't picture not being friends with Tori. Along with being an amazing roommate, she is incredibly selfless and caring. Her focus is always on helping people, and I admire her for all the hard work she puts into everything she does.

Being surrounded by people in the College of Science and Technology, I know it isn't easy. Because I have a strong dislike of science, I give major props to Tori and her friends in CST. I'm so happy she is studying something she's truly passionate about and will love doing in her future career. Whenever I meet people that want to pursue a career in science or the medical field, I immediately give them immense credit. It's extremely difficult to take that career path, and I'm already excited for Tori and her ultimate success.

College is a time for making new friends that will last even after you stop going to school together. Even though I'm only in my second semester, I know I can trust Tori with anything, and she'll be there for me when I need her. I also know that she'll be 100% honest with me when I need guidance or advice.

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to Tori for messaging me to room with her. My college experience has been incredibly positive thus far because she has been with me through it all. I'm extremely grateful for the way things worked out because I couldn't have asked for a kinder roomie.

Thank you, Tori, for not just being an incredible person and roommate, but my best friend as well.

P.S. I can't wait to bake with you in our apartment together next semester!

10 Reasons To Consider Windshield Replacement Over Windshield Repair

No action movie seems thrilling enough without earth shattering explosions, deformed metals or wrecked glasses, and car crashes; they seem to be thestaple in Hollywood these days.

"The Terminator", "The Matrix reloaded"," Final Destination" or "Armed and Dangerous" with famous soundtrack "Born to be wild"; all seem entertaining but, only on the screen. In real life we all wish to have a vehicle that may not be a vintage gem but definitely impervious to any harm, just like in the movie "The Car". Alas! That just is nothing more than a fantasy with a distant possibility.

Glass seems ubiquitous in today's world, be it huge skyscrapers, home windows or a car windshield and bound to damage for numerous reasons. Knock the wood for the negative, if the calamity strikes your car windshields, the first thing that comes to mind is whether to go for an auto glass replacement or a repair. We present to you ten genuine reasons to consider windshield replacement over windshield repair.

  1. Safety During Long Distance Travels:

If you travel often, you must be aware that roads might be bumpy, have sharp turns and weather conditions can also affect your car's status, especially if the windshield is cracked. Speed and other factors may cause even the smallest of the cracks to spread. A repaired windshield does not have the same integrity as a new one. The last thing that one can expect is a shattered windshield in middle of the road causing serious hazard that can be life-threatening at times. It is worth replacing the windshield in case of a long distance travel.

  1. Maintain Structural Reliability of Car:

The structural reliability of a car may get compromised due to the damaged windshields which are susceptible to further degeneration due to stress caused by extreme cold/hot weather. It is recommended to get the windshield replaced instead of repaired if there are stresses in the windscreen and the atmosphere experiences sudden changes in temperatures. This may save you from the significant cost of mending a falling roof of your car!

  1. Protection against Glares while Driving:

If there is a crack on the windshield, the refracting effect causes glares while driving on a sunny day or during nights. With a small crack as a starting point, it might further shatter causing interlocking of smaller pieces with neighboring pieces that won't fall voluntarily but block/ hinder vision of the road ahead. In this case replacing damaged windshield is a definite savior rather than temporary repairs.

  1. Prevent Accidental Mishaps Due to Smashed Windshields:

Broken windshield may cause the glass to the shatter and roof to fall while driving on a highway. This is not only dangerous to the person in the driving seat and fellow passengers, but also hazardous to numerous vehicles on the same route. You can prevent such highway mishaps and accidents just by making a wise decision to replace the damaged windshield instead of repairing.

  1. Larger Splinters Can Not be Repaired and Need Replacement:

Excluding a few exceptions,splinters more than 6 inches and flakes larger than 3/8 inches mostly cannot be refurbished. Such splinters and flakes demand immediate windshield replacement to ensure safety of the occupant.

  1. Holds the Sunroof in A Sturdy Manner:

Car's windshield is the only part that holds the sunroof of the car and gives stability to it. Even a slight harm to the windshield glass may cause the roof to become fragile and pose a threat of sunroof breakage. Replacement of the splintered windshield before starting the journey is the only way to ensure a robust roof over your head. A robust windshield supports the roof and maintains 50-60% structural integrity of the car depending on its quality and model in case of rollover accidents.

  1. Settled Dirt and Dust May Cause Auto Glass Repair to Fail:

Even if the chip or crack is of a small/manageable size, dirt and dust is difficult to remove if accumulated. It might affect the curing of adhesive done as part of repairs and cause the repair work to fail. So, if due to any reason, you could not block the dirt and dust from gathering on the chipped area, the best alternative would be the auto glass replacement.

  1. A Broken Windshield Can Cost You a Ticket:

Besides aesthetic issues, it is illegal to drive a car with a broken or a chipped windshield. It implies driving in a dangerous condition causing an impaired full view of the road ahead. Residents of Florida, Kentucky, and South Carolina do have deductibles waived off for windshield replacements; however, one needs to assure that the crack is not in a vital area like the windshield wiper, stone/shot damage not more than ½ inches and frame still provides adequate protection when driving on highway. The rest remains up to you on what to choose, what's better between replacement or a ticket with a motoring offence!

  1. Repair May Prove Costly Over Time:

A stitch in time saves nine; however when it comes to fractures on the edges of windshields it is better to get a new one rather than mending damage for the time being. The minor cracks may be eligible for actual replacement; but if you go the repair route, the glass may still fail pretty soon costing you for both the repair and the replacement.

  1. Protects against Theft and Vandalism:

Damaged windshields are vulnerable as they can prove to be a window of opportunity for burglars to vandalize and compromise the security of your car. Smart thieves can use specialized equipment to further aggravate the cracked glass and take away your valuables while your vehicle is parked or you are on a driving break during a long journey.

When it comes to travelling safety and peace of mind are of utmost importance. Each and everyone's responsible mindset towards road safety and the motoring regulation is the key to gain it. A windshield replacement for an out of order/ detrimental glass panel can prove significant when it comes to a matter of life!
