CBD has shown to be effective for treating seizures in people with certain forms of epilepsy. A new study from Japan analyzes whether the same benefits that come from CBD could extend to dogs through animal-specific products like a CBD Pet Tincture.
The research project, published in Pet Behavior Science, come from from the Yamazaki University of Health. Three dogs who suffer from frequent epileptic seizures were included in the study. Researchers gave the animals small serving sizes of a CBD Pet Tincture twice each day for eight weeks. They also assessed the dogs every two weeks during the study. Click here for the findings.
Given the small sample size, the report makes clear that more research is needed. The scientists also wrote that “further research is needed for better understanding the neurobiological mechanisms of CBD.”
In June 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a CBD-infused oral drug called Epidiolex. This medication is designed to treat seizures for two rare forms of pediatric epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, in children over age two. Epidiolex is the first FDA-approved drug to contain CBD.
A recent study out of Israel recently examined the long-term efficacy of Epidiolex in patients. Click here for the results.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD supports normal joint mobility and soothes nerves in animals, among other benefits. We use lower amounts of CBD in this product than our standard tinctures to better accommodates the specific needs of animals. We also third-party test all of our products for potency, heavy metals and pesticides.
