An update on THC Delta 8 Isomer in Dogs
Despite the Internet’s insistence that Delta-8 Isomer THC in dogs is “toxic” – it’s entirely the opposite.
Once-a-day dosing is VERY reasonable. If you dose Delta-8 Isomer gummies in the morning , it will wear off completely at about 18-22 hours.
Dosing THC Delta 8 in dogs more conservatively can ensure that effects don’t last more than 24 hours. And can sustain a suitable length-of-effect without dosing as high as the first dose.
After the first few doses of THC Delta 8 in dogs, drooling is MINIMAL.
There is definitely a “first 3-5 hours” of visible effect from the Delta 8 Gummies. Where the dog might sway while standing, or bump into your leg when turning around. After that time, however, you can still see a ‘calmness’ without any physical manifestation. Just a “slower wagging tail” and a more “considered” response to squirrels in the yard or the UPS man crossing the driveway.
I doubt that a dog would need to be on Delta 8 THC Isomer gummies for life. My wager would be that a dog would realize that “so much angst” is unnecessary and unwarranted and “forget” to be so spazzy about things. That would be the hope, anyway.
There’s a chart for dosing, and a VERY comprehensive discussion of the obvious and not-so-obvious side effects of THC Delta 8 isomer gummies in dogs. The assessments were done with healthy subject dogs, using 25mg Gummies by “Koi Inc.” Grape flavored without xylitol.

Disclaimer: It’s crucial that these comments and notes aren’t broadened to include Delta 6,9,10 nor “full spectrum” THC or “plain weed” because it’s NOT. These notes and assessments are made on a specific strength, brand and dose of Delta 8 isomer THC given as an oral ‘gummy’. It has never been recommended for use over 1mg/kg and it’s unlikely it would ever need to be.
Is This You?
Most people want to have a nice life.
They want to get nice things.
They want to be treated nicely.
They want people to help them when they need it.
And they want people to do nice things for them.
Normal people want to be included, and feel at least a little bit important to others.
Some deny it, but normal people are nourished by love.
If you’re reading this, chances, are you already know that you’re not quite normal. You might have super powers, of course, but the fact is, you’re not aware of the things you do that are holding you back. That’s part of the disorder. But it’s very fixable. Unless you’re literally a retard.
There are four kind of people who have hard lives. Because they don’t fit in. And they are always smart. (Sometimes they actually are, sometimes they only think they are) but all of them are smart enough to know that they don’t fit in.
Also always: To get over it, they tell themselves that they don’t need anybody. But this only works on the short term, because as they go through life without anyone who truly loves them, their self-esteem erodes, no matter how much they portray to others that they are “The Best”, until at retirement, they’re bitter and small…and alone at The End.
Four crippling conditions, and the sufferers are 100% unaware:
- HFA-1 Autism
- Narcissism: benign or malignant
If a person suffering with any of the above four disorders does not discover it, does not learn to be RELATABLE, does not learn how to fit in:
- You’ll ONLY ever get help and support from people who ARE OBLIGATED to help and support you. Specifically, employees, and your parents. Everybody else will have no love nor time for you.
- You won’t have people around you who actually WANT to help and support you.
- Opportunities don’t open up, because you’re not relatable. Nobody’s going to want to teach you if you are conceited, nobody’s going to choose to work with you if you’re a prima donna, nobody’s going to want to hang around with you are arrogant.
- And you won’t be invited to important things, events or opportunities if you are constantly critical, judgmental and negative.
What happens to people no one likes:
People who fancy themselves as better than everyone else, have to forcibly TAKE what they get, because no one GIVES them anything, because nobody really likes them.
Someone may be OK with not being liked. But how many people are all right with being full-on disliked?
The people in the four groups above, can blindly do things that make them disliked. And the problem with those four disorders:
The sufferers are absolutely blind to their condition.
They have no idea that they have “emotional and social body odor”.
But there’s good news. Regardless of your diagnosis, all of the four conditions above can be effectively managed. It all starts with, awareness, acceptance, and aggressive-self-discipline to develop skills in the area of “relatability.“
And shed the barriers that exist to getting an abundant, prosperous and loving life.
Here are four things that I have learned that helped me to survive all of the four Disorders listed above:
- Early in conversation, make a positive observation about a person, place, or thing. This gives you something relevant to say, and makes people want to talk to you.
- Don’t “Yuck” on another persons “Yum”. Chances are 100% that they didn’t ask your opinion. (There’s no need for them to like your boring stuff). But take an interest in theirs. People will want to talk to you.
- Never talk about yourself. Talk about the other person. This makes people want to talk to you.
- You can get further in life on “Polite and Interested” than you can on “College and Arrogance”.
Where do you go from here?
Learn absolutely everything you can about “relatability” from Dale Carnegie.
“Make it about the other person”, and all good things will follow. Seriously. It’s not about you.
Don’t live in a basement, don’t USE other people, and don’t be alone for the rest of your life.
And the underpinning of it all: Being Relatable.
Marrow Bones and Bone Broth
A note for dog owners.
I want NOT to bombard with information about dogs and cats but sometimes I see something “enough times” to think that “Hmmm I should say something about this because people won’t know.”
It’s about bone broth.
Bone broth is a soup or stock made with bones. Like, the marrow (which is a LOT of fat) is melted out of bones making a tasty marrow / bone broth.
It has lots of nutrients that are from the marrow. Even iron.
It’s a LOT (I mean a LOT) of fat. So if you noticed that when you put it on your dog’s food they “Eat like never before” that’s why. And then you’ll notice their weight climbing up month after month.
Bone broth is basically “Liquid Pizza” for a dog’s waistline.
It gets worse:
Bone broth and any other source of fat over 15% in toto are actually LIKELY to cause gastrointestinal upset, diarrhea and eventually, chronic colitis.
If you and your Vet are battling your dog’s chronic diarrhea (like every month or more) it could be a cumulative effect of too much fat in the diet. Overweight dogs have a very high likelihood of diarrhea and GI Upset.
I said all that to say this: I’d leave Bone Broth out of a dog’s diet. If they don’t wanna eat dry dog food dry, twice a day, then I’d suspect they’re at a really good weight and don’t NEED the calories.
Adding Bone Broth makes them eat WITHOUT NEED and they get fat.
Two random notes:
BONES GET STUCK SURPRISINGLY:
We cut a bone off a dog’s lower jaw again the other day. It was a “marrow bone” which is basically a ‘bracelet’ made of bone, and full of marrow / fat. The bone gets ‘emptied out’ pretty fast, giving the dog a sudden 750 calorie punch in the waist. Then they slide the bone down over their lower jaw and have to go get it cut off.
BEST BONE FOR DOGS:
Secret sauce: Beef Shanks. All of the marrowy goodness MUCH more slowly, and no bones over the lower jaw. ALWAYS make sure it’s a BEEF shank because a PORK SHANK will splinter like a Pinata full of razorblades.
A WORD OF CAUTION:
In fact, I STRENUOUSLY recommend AGAINST any and all bones which are PORK origin. Only BEEF bones have any chance against the jaws of a dog over 40 pounds. For the rest, Pork Bones Splinter.

Does it surprise you that as a “Facebook” company, that Instagram makes you sign up and log in to see their content?
So if someone sends you a link to their Instagram, in order to see it, you have to sign up. Can’t just look. As a result of wanting to indulge your friend and check out their baby shower pics, Facebook ‘necessarily’ gets a new victim to market to. Your privacy across more than TWO platforms gets invaded and amalgamated for advertisers. And *when* (not if) Facebook lets your information loose in a so-called ‘data breach’ the ads will show up in your FB and IG pages. And by “Data Breach” I mean Facebook got a deal they couldn’t refuse on the member-mailing list’s deep-details, and before the ads show up, they forewarn by saying “We had a data breach” and the cost to them is everybody has to change their password – BUT then tolerate a new barrage of strangely-well-targeted advertisements showing up everywhere, from their email box, social media accounts, mail, at work, on their phones. Data breach my fkn ass.
They’ll be dissecting how “Facebook happened” in twenty years in utter disbelief.
A hyper-sophisticated platform with unsophisticated and uninformed users.
Zuckerberg actually IS the “Mark” of the Beast.
It would be an interesting day, to say the very least, if “someone” organized a nation wide “rebellion” of concerned parents, against videogames in the lives of our kids (and spouses I guess.)
What that would look like:
A date would be set to basically walk into our kids’ lives with a published, vetted, set of parameters and boundaries to the video game to which they are bona fide addicted.
(And they are)
ONE PREMISE IS:
Parents won’t stand for the insult of “You’re letting your kid pass out in his room with a videogame needle in his arm.” Even while it’s a full-on addiction complete with obsession, health-sacrifice, negotiating, lying, social detriment, constant time-investment, hiding the behavior, engagement at other’s expense, and anger including self-harm and histrionics around separation from the behavior.
BUT IT IS AN ADDICTION:
Addiction. Pure bred. Ending up with “kids living in the basement” til they’re thirty because they never cultivated the personal skills to find or keep a partner, developed a practical work-ethic nor honed the ability to forge through anything resembling adversity.
Why is this happening?
FUNDAMENTALLY Parents only see the videogame as a “toy”
Not as a developmental threat.
Would “they” let the kids play with a toy that could ruin their development? YES.
Parents can’t conceive the idea that the videogame is engineered FULL ON to be addictive using every known psychological manipulation-technique. Even if chimps didn’t understand the game they would be addicted by the “kill-reward-level-up-get-armor” reinforcement strategy. ‘
The MAIN reasons for parents “Not fixing this” are TWO.
#1 POPULARITY CONTEST
More than fifty percent of parents facing this are divorced with supposedly fragile kids with one parent. And the custodial parent doesn’t want to blow up the kid’s world – it’s kind of a Popularity Contest after divorce. Sometimes even when still married, a parent doesn’t have the support of the other parent because the other parent has that SAME needle in their arm. Never should have married that one. Or at least, should never have conceived a child WITH a man with the maturity-of-a-child.
#2 LACK OF INFORMATION
Not many Therapists and Counselors advise on a child’s toy like Videogames as a bona fide ADDICTION. They may share the parents viewpoint that it’s just one of the kid’s toys.
So, the parent is sometimes at a loss to know what to do besides withdraw the game.
But the FACTS support that because the child is addicted to the videogame, parents can exact the same control over their kids as you can manipulate a crack whore with crack-cocaine or an alcoholic with Bourbon.
Kids will do ANYTHING, and AGREE to anything in order to play the video game.
True, they certainly won’t follow through with their assertions, negotiations, promises and begging, but then: You simply don’t let them have the videogame until they DO.
YES many of the addicts will threaten to kill themselves if they can’t play their video game. (And you still want to say it’s NOT a bonafide addiction??)
So a system could be implemented for the Videogame Revolution that spells out the new terms for videogames in American Households. These would be the same boundaries for all families participating, so that it’s harder for a ‘limited kid’ to say “Tommy gets to play anytime he wants” and have it carry any weight.
To wit: Standards for:
- Earning Time
- Losing Time
- Eliminating Addictive Content
- Limiting Time
- Off Limits During Family Times.
You can earn videogame time with the following behaviors. Such as spend an hour in the yard playing = earn an hour on the Game. Join the family at mealtime five times and earn an hour. Come out of your room for an hour and earn an hour. Extinguish your sibling if he was on fire or speak to another person at least daily and earn an hour. Take a shower or eat a sit down meal and earn an hour.
You lose videogame time by forgetting your household responsibilities.
Didn’t handle the kitchen trash, didn’t take care of the dog, didn’t keep your bathroom or bedroom up, didn’t attend other chores, scored under a minimum at school: Lose privileges. Summarily or incrementally.
Certain videogames, (the ones BEST written for addiction like Fortnight and Call of Duty) are simply out. Off limits. Not in this household. It is well known what videogames are breaking up marriages and ruining kids.
Videogame time is limited per day. No more than 10% of a day, or 2.4 hours can be inested in videogames even for a helpful, chore-doing polite and relatable kid.
Videogames will not be endeavored during the following events: (Anything the family is doing together.)
So you might as well go to the birthday party, funeral, appointment, vacation, or outbound family trip because you won’t be playing your videogame while everyone else is doing something.
Keep in mind, videogames are a true addiction. When you are faced with a furious-then-crying teenager who tries to steal videogame time by lying, and then leaves home to go live at the Non-Custodial Parent’s House, or suddenly is going over to a friend’s house for hours on end – – they’re scoring their ‘hit’.
The problem with “full-on addiction” during the formative years: It’s JUST like alcohol too early: ANY addiction suspends the development of the pre-frontal cortex when the addiction takes hold. And that process can’t be restarted. So the kid is just coping with developmental defects and behavioral atrophy for life. And probably? Lives in your basement, spouseless, and after your basement: Practically homeless forever.
