A man from Westport is selling a new line of dog treats made with CBD as the hemp derivative is gaining popularity in the treatment of many things, from insomnia to joint pain.

Joesequencia is the creator of YUP PUP, which he says is one of the first all-natural, organic, hemp-based CBD dog treats to hit the market.

The well-known entrepreneur is enthusiastic about the success of the product that was put online on April 15th.

Sequenceia was once the chief marketing officer of America’s largest cannabis company. He says while CBD can be derived from cannabis and hemp, hemp is the only one of the two that does not contain THC, the chemical in cannabis that creates the high.

“I really wish there was a better understanding between hemp and cannabis,” he said.

The tasty treats are a favorite of his two golden retrievers, Floyd and Zezu, who have been taking them for several months.

“What we saw with CBD in our YUP PUP treats is instantly visible,” he said. “So things like fear, it’s an instant difference. It’s a daily treat, they eat it every day. For our 10 year old Golden, he can go up and down the stairs again. For our 4 year old Golden, it makes him a little less crazy. “
