AAVSB publishes new Guidance Document on CBD in Companion Animals

Due to the prevalence of pet parents utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) products for their animals, and/or asking veterinarians about the efficacy and safety of these products, the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) had acknowledged the importance of regulating CBD use in companion animals.  To that end, the organization’s Regulatory Policy Task Force has recently developed the AAVSB Guidance Document for CBD Use on Companion Animals.  This represents an effort to provide key information and practical guidelines to assist member boards and their constituents, and to act as a resource for licensees and clients to refer to when considering the use of CBD products in a defined treatment plan.
