A recent clinical and pharmacokinetic study was freshly completed at the Cornell University and the study suggests that a dose of 2mg/kg of cannabidiol (CBD) oil twice a day will help to increase the comfort and the mobility level in dogs suffering from osteoarthritis.
Abstract of the study was submitted to the American College of Veterinary Surgeons Summit in Indianapolis and is now waiting for peer review.
In charge of the study was Dr. Joe Wakshlag, DVM, Ph.D., DACVN, DACVSMR, associate professor and section chief of nutrition at Cornell. He says that the main objectives of the study we to determine the basic pharmacokinetics in oral use, to determine the safety and the efficacy of the cannabidiol oil when it comes to managing pain.
Dr. Wakshlag’s team tested 2 different doses of the oil, one was 2mg/kg and the other 8mg/kg. They say that the elimination half-life of both doses is 4.2 hours and they didn’t note any side effects with either dose.
