Can you ask your veterinarian for a CBD prescription for your pet?
In September 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law that will allow vets to discuss the use of medicinal cannabis for their clients (aka, peoples’ pets) without getting penalized; that bill will come into effect in January 2019.
However, veterinarians will be prohibited from prescribing, recommending, dispensing, or administering cannabis to your pet. While the passing of the bill gives hope that more attention will be paid to the benefits of cannabis for animals, it could be some time before mainstream veterinary medicine fully embraces cannabis as a treatment option for animals.
