An Update on the Science Behind CBD (Cannabidiol) Use for Pets

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Although cannabis has been used medicinally for centuries, the science behind it is still in its infancy. Since becoming legal in many states, its popularity has become mainstream, including its use in our veterinary patients.  

    We are struggling to catch up with the public and put some evidence-based medicine behind this craze. The objectives of this webinar will be to provide an overview of CBD, present a review of the published veterinary research, and a summary of the current study investigating its use for managing drug-resistant canine epilepsy. The intent will be to educate veterinarians and pet owners on the current status of CBD and its potential use in veterinary medicine.
