Is Cannabis legal for animals?
The regulatory environment around cannabis for animals is still very unclear. In all major jurisdictions that we are aware of, medical cannabis for animals is illegal, unless it’s being used for medical research purposes and with the necessary permits.
How can I treat my animal with medical cannabis?
You should always seek professional advice from a veterinarian when treating animals for any illness. Unfortunately we cannot give you advice, but we are working towards having our products scientifically tested, validated and labelled correctly to inform and allow veterinarians to prescribe medical cannabis medications for animals.
When can I buy your products?
CannPal is working with regulatory authorities to validate the safety and efficacy of medical cannabis for use in companion pets. This is an arduous process and involves robust clinical studies that take time. This process in its entirety can take 3 to 4 years and in some cases more.
However medical cannabis is an evolving industry and while we will continue to complete the required safety and efficacy studies to show our products are safe and efficacious for regulatory authorities, we are following the legislative changes closely and should there be an opportunity to enter a legal market earlier than anticipated, we are well placed to do so.
We are also researching the benefits of CBD derived from hemp, which isn’t bound by the same legislative rules as medical cannabis. We hope to be able to market a product derived from the hemp plant as early 2019.
Is cannabis dangerous for pets?
Cannabis can be dangerous for animals when taken incorrectly. Dogs have more cannabinoid receptors than humans and can be very sensitive to THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. If you suspect your dog has consumed marijuana without your supervision, take them to the vet immediately. The following signs indicate that your dog may have consumer too much cannabis:
- Dribbling urine
- Walking like they’re intoxicated
- Beginning to fall over while standing still
- Low heart rate
- Low blood pressure
- Wide, dilated pupils
- Easily startled by sudden sounds
However when consumed in the correct ratios of cannabinoids and dosages, and under medical supervision, cannabis is a wonderful medicine for a range of ailments and we’re working to be able to provide pet owners with safe, standardised and dosage controlled medicines using cannabis.
