Dr. Lera talks about CBD in pets with one of his dogs, Ruby, a four-year-old cavapoo.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a type of chemical naturally found in cannabis. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s nonpsychoactive, which means it won’t produce a “high.”
Research on CBD is in its early stages, but some studies and anecdotal evidence have found that it may be helpful in treating conditions like anxiety, pain, cancer, and arthritis. CBD pet products are marketed as a natural way to treat these conditions in dogs. It’s important to understand that just because these products are for sale doesn’t necessarily mean they’re considered safe or beneficial for pets. Currently, there are no CBD products approved by the FDA for use in animals — as a drug or as food. (source: healthline.com)
