With more and more states pushing to legalize cannabis more news is coming out about its health benefits. The latest news is a cannabidiol-based products is being used to treat dogs anxiety problems. The product can be used to treat "behavioural-based disorders such as anxiety and noise phobias, chronic pain, arthritis, and diabetes."
- Medical cannabis may have a strong calming effect on pets, dull chronic pain, and significantly improve their vibrancy and quality of life, according to Australian-listed medical cannabis company Creso Pharma.
- On Wednesday Creso, which is listed on the ASX and has local offices but is headquartered in Switzerland, announced it had received European Union health registration for two cannabidiol-based products – one for horses, the other for smaller animals such as cats or dogs.
- The products will contain cannabidiol, a chemical found within cannabis that does not have any psychoactive effects – so Fido won't get high.
"Cannabidiol are legally approved for use on animals so long as they are prescribed by a vet."
