CBD OIL USE IN PETS
CBD OIL AND YOUR PET - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
Questions about the use of CBD oil for your pets? We've researched the subject. This information is from the American Veterinary Medical Association and reflects our position (full article available upon request):
"...While CBD may not produce the typical euphoria seen with THC in humans, it does affect the nervous system in mammalian species. The specific mechanisms and effects remain unknown. CBD products often indicate a hemp source, leading many to believe that the products are legally marketed, when in fact they ARE NOT. CBD is promoted as having antianxiety, antipsychotic, antispasmodic, antibacterial, and many of the same properties as THC-containing marijuana products without the euphoric properties.
...the DEA has issued a clarification that while they indeed recognize industrial hemp research and its products as legal, this protection DOES NOT extend to CBD products, WHICH REMAIN ILLEGAL, regardless of the source.
Marijuana products are being marketed to treat diseases in animals. While both marijuana and industrial hemp products are available, no studies, doses, or uses in veterinary medicine have been determined. Furthermore, FDA has not approved the use of marijuana or hemp in any form in animals, and the agency cannot ensure the safety or effectiveness of these products. For these reasons, FDA and AVMA cautions pet owners against the use of such products. Many of these products are marketed as CBD oil or chews. These products, despite contrary claims, ARE ILLEGAL FOR USE IN PETS...."
