CBD Oil for Pets: How Cannabis Can Treat Your Pets

Tuesday, Jan 2, 2018

Cannabis is still a hot-button issue in this country (even if a clear majority of Americans support its decriminalization). But what if we change the topic from cannabis for people to cannabis for pets? Surprisingly, the picture starts to look pretty darn clear: CBD oil for pets can be an effective option for pain and anxiety relief.

Earlier this year, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AMVA)—the pre-eminent veterinarians’ group in the U.S.—approved a resolution to begin advocating for federal rescheduling. They argued that cannabis’ therapeutic effects on both humans and animals far outweigh its risks.

Along those lines, growing numbers of veterinarian and clinician groups have called to reclassify cannabis as a Schedule II drug. If that happens, it would open the door to more research funding and more impactful findings.

So, why should we give our pets cannabis in the first place? And what kind is safe? Read on, animal lovers!

If you’re in a cannabis-legal state, maybe you’ve seen advertisements for “CBD Oil For Pets” in local pet shops. That’s because CBD—or cannabidiol—is non-psychoactive, so pet stores can sell it without being licensed dispensaries.
