What is CBD? CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD only reacts with CB2 receptors, which are found in the body and not the brain. For this reason, CBD doesn’t cause the psychoactive ‘high’ effects.

Though the data in these studies varies, it does give dog owners somewhere to start. What all of these studies have in common is that no dogs suffered severe illness or issues along with the administration of CBD.

These research articles prove that taking CBD regularly can benefit dogs with OA or seizures, but it is necessary to pay extra attention to ALP levels.
