Silke Le Messurier is another pet owner who is using cannabis to help her dog. She recently wrote to me: “My almost three year old Husky/German Shepherd Mix Loki received the Nobivac Lyme vaccine manufactured by Merck. As we left the Pet Hospital, on the way out my husband and I asked if we needed to observe him for any reactions or side effects. The answer was, “No, your dog will be fine.”
“The hemp oil seems to help,” she reports. “He had one short seizure on September 24th and nothing since, and it was a short one — I am tracking everything.

Another study in Epilepsia in 2014, says: “CBD has neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory effects, and it appears to be well tolerated in humans, but small and methodologically limited studies of CBD in human epilepsy have been inconclusive. CBD bears investigation in epilepsy and other neuropsychiatric disorders, including anxiety, schizophrenia, addiction, and neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. However, we lack data from well-powered double-blind randomized, controlled studies on the efficacy of pure CBD for any disorder.”
“He has a lot more energy now. I think it takes six weeks for the cannabis oil to be fully in his system, then we are hoping to reduce the phenobarbital. So far so good.”

What Dog Health Problems Can CBD Oil Treat?
Why are we hearing so much about CBD oil now? Dr. Klein points to the legalization of marijuana in many places, which has triggered interest in potential health benefits of marijuana-related products. “We are likely to see continued interest in CBD and an increase in research about its uses and efficacy in the coming years,” he says.
Currently, there has been no formal study on how CBD affects dogs. What scientists do know is that cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help maintain balance in the body and keep it in a normal healthy state.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. Dr. Klein says it is essential to note that in most cases, CBD oil does not contain delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. In fact, most CBD products are derived from hemp and not from marijuana.
