Medicinal cannabis is grabbing ever more attention and more companies are getting into the field. This CSIRO research “snapshot” of a joint research effort with a company reveals why pets are in need and why they may be the first to get cannabis therapy.
WATCHING A BELOVED pet suffer from arthritis or lose their appetite from illness is awful — but medicinal cannabis may be able to help. Animals such as dogs, cats and horses process cannabinoids (found in cannabis) just like humans, so if used properly medicinal cannabis can impact areas such as appetite, pain-sensation, nausea, mood and memory. We’re helping work out the optimal delivery system for each animal’s body and digestive system. We want our furry friends to feel fine.
