Dr. Jamie Peyton, chief of Integrative Medicine Service for UC Davis, said there’s a serious lack of research on the efficacy of cannabis for pets. "The information for human medical cannabis and recreational around the corner is there, and the access is there," she said.
"So I think there are a lot of owners that are really interested in looking into these products for their animals for pain, anxiety, seizures - the same issues we see in people.”
From the survey:
Despite the growing interest in medical cannabis for humans, there is very little known about the usage and role of cannabis in pets. This anonymous survey is a research project to gather information on this topic. All participation is voluntary and will involve answering the following questions. The data will then used to educate the public on the growing role of these products in the pet population and potentially help further funding for future research.
