It can and does work, but we don't really know effective doses and doses that create side effects.


This would be my concern. I tried it for hip pain. But I started with 80mg, then 250 then 750 (if I recall correctly).

I have no idea how you'd assess dosage for an animal other than using some rough correlation on body weight.

Many many people up here swear by it as a Miracle Drug.
I have no opinion one way or the other.

This is why the studies going on now are important. These studies evaluate different doses their effectiveness, side effects and other effects that may not be grossly apparent on various body systems and organs.

I did read an article that was aimed at CBD Oil for pets. It stated in testing that many of the product did not even contain any CBD Oil at all. Use reputable sources only.


That’s true for dietary supplements in general. Since they are not regulated or monitored, it’s hard to know if you are getting what is on the label.

Even among humans, there is no drug that works on everybody. And some peopleare over sensitive to some drugs. If I take 1/5 of a Vicodin I stop breathing, but CBD has no effect on me. (Other friends tried the CBD from my bottle and it worked great on them, so I know it's me and not the ingredients.)

I assume all of this applies to dogs, too. All you can do is try it.

CBD is considered to be extremely non-toxic, at least in humans. But that's true for the opiates, too.

pconroy328 and Dr. Doug, that is why i like the Ellevet CBD oil from my vet. It gives dogs weight and how much you should use. I dont have the original box right now but I believe the first two weeks it is a higher dosage twice a day, then it is reduced. I beleive we started Andy on 5 drops 2x daily for 2 weeks. It is now 3 drops 2x daily. She is 7/8 lbs. I rarely have to give it to him 2x daily now. This just my experience with the Ellevet CBD oil.

I've been taking cbd oil canada to cope with pain. This is the only thing I take for joint pain, as pain medications are mainly ineffective in people with my disorder.

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the Journal of Immunology, dogs with osteoarthritis improved after being given cannabidiol for four weeks. Mobility and signs of pain did not improve in dogs given a placebo or a low dose of CBD, but both improved significantly in dogs given the highest CBD dose or a CBD liposomal formulation, study leader Matthew Halpert said.

This is the best kind of research and results are significant. Stay tuned for further information in the next year as more studies come to light.

Here in NV vets can't talk to pet owners about CBD, but vet techs can. Our vet's office has a specific tech who has been trained in CBD therapy and can make recommendations.
As had been said, CBD is not a guaranteed cure all, but it does have its success stories. We haven't tried CBD, as Duramax seems to work OK for our arthritic dog.
