COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --áRoughly 3-5% of all dogs have genetic epilepsy, and 14 million

dogs have some form of arthritis. CBD oil is helping millions of people around the world, and as a result the veterinary medical market is becoming more aware of the relief CBD can provide to dogs, cats, horses and even birds! Animals have an endocannabinoid system much like humans and can benefit from cannabinoids in much the same way. But don't be so quick to give your pet just any form of cannabis, THC can be toxic to animals, so ensuring that your pet receives a veterinary approved formulation is important.

Dr. Silver is quoted as saying: "We have learned that the quality of the raw material providing the cannabinoids and terpenes plays the most important role to ensure successful clinical outcomes in our pets and farm animals. The ZERO THC full spectrum hemp oil from Folium Biosciences is, in my experience, one of the top hemp oil raw materials in the USA, and is absolutely safe due to it containing no THC. Numerous reports over the past 5 years have documented the potential toxicity of THC to our pets. There have been a few deaths due to THC ingestion from well-meaning pet parents giving their pets some of their own medical marijuana."

Folium Biosciences is leading the animal health industry in providing bulk cannabidiol (CBD) based formulations to its customers. Led by Dr. Silver, the Folium Biosciences Animal Health Division provides the leading brands in both the cannabis industry as well as the animal health industry, with unique Zero THC formulations to be used in supplements for pets. Dr. Silver is working closely with fellow veterinarians across the country to ensure that CBD research in pets becomes more widely conducted, and he is working actively with the veterinary research community to help create successful animal health studies and clinical trials.
