Is CBD the answer to calming our pets? Many of us worry how our pets will cope at busy times of the year, if they're left alone for a few hours or following a trip to the vets.
Many studies are now finding CBD has the same positive effect on our four-legged loved ones, as it does on the human body. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system, meaning CBD can increase the body's own ability to achieve wellness - whether you're a human, or an animal.
However, here are currently no CBD based products that have been granted a UK veterinary marketing authorisation, which means that over the counter CBD products intended for pets are illegal. As there are currently no CBD products authorised in the UK for veterinary use, a veterinary surgeon may prescribe a legally obtained human CBD product under certain circumstances... there's more about this on our CBD Industry Professional course.
