Pet store PS9 Pet Supplies just made a little bit of history.

The Williamsburg, Brooklyn retailer is the first shop in New York City to carry hemp-derived treats. And no, they won’t get your dog high.

Called Treatibles, the goodies are infused with cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. So, instead of the psychoactive effects of THC found in cannabis, this compound reportedly helps reduce pain, anxiety, spasms, seizures and inflammation, according to the Village Voice.

The owner of PS9 Pet Supplies, Joan Christian, decided to apply for a license to bring the Treatibles line into her store after her own dog Minnie had seen positive effects form them. Christian’s dog had been on Prozac to treat her anxiety, but after hearing of permanent liver damage, decided to wean her pup off of it. “For me, to get animals off the pharmaceuticals is so nice. That can limit a dog’s life span,” she told the Village Voice.

The treats retail for approximately $24 to $32, depending on the size and are crunchy, peanut butter, pumpkin flavored.
