CBD Oil and Canines, Being Studied at Multiple Universities Across the Nation

As the rise in CBD and Hemp oil products gain popularity across the planet, many Universities are beginning to study the potential effects of CBD not only on humans, but on animals as well.

Currently, researchers at Colorado State University are studying whether it has any effects in dogs with epilepsy.

“We’re really kind of looking for the ideal treatment,” said Dr. Stephanie McGrath, an assistant professor and veterinarian at the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. McGrath specializes in neurology and neurosurgery. Right now, she and other veterinarians have two or three good drugs for treating epilepsy, but they come with strong side effects that can sometimes be debilitating.

“The two drugs we most commonly use are phenobarbital and potassium bromide as first line drugs,” McGrath explained According to CBS Denver.

CBS Denver.com reports:

The CBD oil used in the study is made by a Colorado company called Applied Basic Science. It is offered for sale to the public with general guidelines for how to dose your pet. Part of the research that McGrath is doing is figuring out what the proper dosing is for animals.

“He has about 2 to 3 seizures a day,” said Pam Uhlenkamp.

Uhlenkamp’s precious pooch, Ferguson, suffers from epilepsy. She said that Ferguson would seize for 5 minutes at a time, and then it would take nearly an hour to recover.

“It was really scary because you think your dog is in total pain,” she told CBS4. (Read More)
