As the popularity of CBD products increases with clients, veterinarians are inundated with questions about using these products on pets. The CBD pet market has risen to over $199 million and is expected to explode into billions of dollars by 2022. Recent DEA re-scheduling of industrial hemp has created an upheaval in the legal and medical implications for CBD products.

Veterinarians wading through the controversy can be left needing the purported benefits of CBD themselves! What can we discuss with clients? What can we recommend? What’s the current AVMA consensus statement for CBD use? What is the FDA’s current position? In the upcoming months, the CBD debate (especially in NJ) will continue to bring change and more questions. The info provided in this talk will give a basic understanding and provide resources to help navigate the delicate topic of CBD.
