Hello Friend,

Welcome to Friday- I hope that you are doing OK... My family, friends and pets are all doing pretty well..although things can get a little dicey being in close quarters with each other for so long :-)

Perhaps this would help?

About CBD..

So yes you have heard A LOT about CBD (cannabidiol)...much  of that is as a result of dog and cat parents seeing positive results with their pets..

For those of you who have yet to try it..well I encourage you to do so..

There are MANY available, but ensure that whatever you try it has these properties..

  • Full spectrum
  • Organic and Natural

Cornell takes the lead in cannabidiol research

A new pharmacokinetic and clinical study recently completed at Cornell suggests that 2 mg/kg of cannabidiol (CBD) oil twice daily can help increase comfort and activity in dogs with osteoarthritis. The abstract was submitted to the 2017 American College of Veterinary Surgeons Summit in Indianapolis and is pending peer review.

The science

The study was headed by Joe Wakshlag, DVM, PhD, DACVN, DACVSMR, associate professor and section chief of nutrition at Cornell. The objectives were to determine the basic oral pharmacokinetics, determine safety and assess efficacy of CBD oil in managing pain in dogs with osteoarthritis, according to the abstract.

The team pharmacokinetically tested two different doses of CBD oil—2 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg—which was provided by ElleVet, the abstract states. They determined the elimination half-life to be 4.2 hours at both doses. No negative side effects were noted at either dosage; however, serum chemistry did show that alkaline phosphatase activity increased (p = 0.005).

Investigators tested CBD oil’s pain management properties using a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind crossover study. Dogs received either CBD oil at 2 mg/kg every 12 hours or they received placebo oil, according to the abstract. Dogs were treated for four weeks with a two-week washout period. The dogs’ owners completed questionnaires and veterinarians conducted assessments—including physical exam, hematology and serum chemistry—before treatment and at weeks two and four. The Canine Brief Pain Inventory score and Hudson activity score (a visual analogue scale questionnaire used to assess pain and lameness in dogs) determine response to treatment. All variables were analyzed by a mixed model of variance. A p value of < 0.05 was determined significant.

The results seem to support anecdotal reports of CBD oil’s benefits. Veterinary assessment showed that CBD oil reduced pain (p < 0.03), and the Canine Brief Pain Inventory and Hudson activity scores showed clinically significant reduction in pain and an increase in activity with CBD treatment (p < 0.001), the abstract reports.


Dr J comments..

1. The study confirmed that CBD helps for Arthritis pain.

2. NO negative side effects were found

3. The doses used were 1mg/lb, and 5mg/lb - MUCH higher than the doses that many of you likely have your dogs/cats on

This may mean that if you are not seeing pain relief with CBD, that the doses need to be increased. Based on this study though, it is very safe to increase the dose.
