32Frequently Asked Questions with our Chief Veterinary OfficerDr. Robert J. Silver, DVM, MSPhytocannabinoids and Pets: CBD and THCQ.How does CBD work in pets? A. It works the same way it works in people, by stimulating the endocannabinoid system to create balance in the body which helps to relieve pain, reduce neurological problems, reduce anxiety, and address problems with diseases like osteoarthritis, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, epilepsy, asthma, etc. Q. Is THC necessary for CBD to work?A. No. This was a common belief before more research was done regarding hemp’s other cannabinoids. New information has shown that THC and CBD can sufficiently function without the other. Broad spectrum products that are THC-free but still have several other cannabinoids present are the most beneficial as the cannabinoids are able to complement each other’s individual effects.Q. Is THC safe to use in pets?A. Folium Biosciences does not recommend giving THC to animals. Every species will experience different reactions to the compound. Dogs have been found to be highly sensitive to its psychoactive properties, while cats have been shown to be less susceptible. THC in larger animals like horses can be potentially dangerous to both the animal and owner, due to THC causing excessive excitement or positive drug tests.Q. Is THC an important medicinal cannabinoid?A. THC does have clinical value when combined with CBD for severe pain and aggressive types of cancer. Other than those two applications, the other major and minor cannabinoids and terpenes found in broad spectrum hemp extracts are more than adequate to address most clinical conditions responsive to cannabinoids.
