Course Focus and Learning Objectives

The CBD in Veterinary Medicine: The Science and Application continuing education course was made possible through an educational partnership with CompanionCBD.

Cannabidiol (CBD) and Hemp Oil based products have become increasingly sought after remedies by pet owners. Josh Sosnow, DVM, discusses how CBD can be safely used in practice to augment more traditional therapies. He outlines the current state of regulation pertaining to CBD and the hemp industry. In addition, he covers the basics of the endocannabinoid system and its many functions. The goal is to provide veterinarians, and practice team members, with a scientific foundation to discuss using CBD to aid in the management of a variety of conditions.

Dr. Sosnow also addresses the phytocannabionids, the pharmacokinetics and pharamacodynamics of CBD, along with clinical applications of cannabidiol (CBD), and future directions for the study of CBD in veterinary patients.

This course is based on the archive of a 2-part webinar series and is appropriate for veterinarians, credentialed technicians, and practice team members, along with vet and tech school students.

At the end of this course, attendees will be able to discuss what CBD is, including its composition and regulatory status. They will also be able to outline the endocannabinoid system.
