The FDA recently sent out a request for public comments on how CBD products should be regulated. What they perhaps didn’t anticipate is a flurry of dog owners sharing personal stories on the topic of CBD for dogs.
More than four percent of public comments (4,269) that the FDA has on its request document mention CBD for dogs. Rebecca M. writes that she saw a “dramatic” change in her dog after giving it CBD for seven months. Mandy W. tells the FDA that daily servings of CBD “have made a huge difference” in her seven-year-old Newfoundland. Kerri S. Uses CBD for her two family dogs and says “the results [are] obvious and positive.” She urges the FDA to “allow this important, natural and extremely helpful medicine.”
The public comments also include a statement from Janet E. Donlin, Executive Vice President and CEO of the American Veterinary Medical Association. She writes that veterinarians “enthusiastically support exploring the therapeutic potential” of CBD products. Janet also notes the importance of veterinarians having “continued confidence in the efficacy, quality and safety of products.”
CBD and Animals
CBD is a naturally occurring molecule that works in the endocannabinoid system of an animal. Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD helps support joint mobility and soothe nerves in animals, among other benefits.
