As time goes on, and more studies arise, more pet owners are turning to non-psychoactive components (like Cannabidiol, or CBD) of cannabis (hemp) to help their pets. The International Business Times recently reported one such story involving Brett Hartmann from Los Angeles and his six-year-old black lab.
Hartmann said ever since he started Cayley on CBD, her separation anxiety has disappeared. He said that Cayley used to accompany him to work because of his seizures, but because his new medicines have stopped his seizures, he allowed Cayley to “retire and…I don’t think she handled the transition too well. But CBD has really helped”.
The article then went on to say that CBD doesn’t only help with mental conditions like Cayley’s separation anxiety, but also against arthritis and other painful ailments. The International Business Times also referenced another report of a horse who stopped eating due to a degenerative ligament disease. Within one hour of consuming CBD, as a last resort, it was back on its feet.
Another study by the National Institute of Health reiterates that CBD is non-psychoactive (won’t get you “high”), and is shown to have a high protective index comparable to that of phenobarbital and phenytoin. A protective index compares the therapeutic effect to the amount that causes toxicity. The higher the protective index, the more therapeutic effect and less toxicity an agent produces. So, because of CBD’s high protective index, it means that a person can consume very large amounts without having any toxic results.
Although these are preliminary tests, it appears CBD may be very beneficial to our canine friends as well.
