Studies including CBD oil in dogs and cats

Research and use of CBD goes back to the early 1800s, however, there is currently limited research for use, tolerance and safety in pets. 


Below is a list of the most up to date research for use in cats and dogs. This information is meant to educate pet owners on how CBD, in general, works in the pet's body.  These results show that CBD is absorbed, tolerated, safe and shows promise in treating specific ailments, such as osteoarthritis and seizures.  CBD Vet Oil was not used in any of the following studies.
