The answer is… there is no definitive answer. Currently, CBD has been reported heavily via anecdotal evidence given by pet owners to assist in pain & arthritis relief. However, it’s important to note that due to the evolving, growing nature of this sector, there are going to be diverse opinions. Thus far, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) believes that research of CBD as a treatment for animals is still very limited. On the other hand, it can’t be denied that there are success stories – both within scientific and anecdotal evidence.
When it comes to discussing it as a treatment with your veterinarian, that’s where things get a bit more tricky. Some vets are on board with CBD for dogs, some have not reviewed the research, and some have their apprehensions.
