BOULDER, Colo., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HempMy Pet™, a vertically integrated Colorado Hemp company that grows medicinal hemp and produces CBD-infused pet products, announces the completion of a clinical trial to assess the impact of hemp-derived Cannabidiol (CBD) on dogs suffering from chronic pain and decreased functionality due to osteoarthritis. Overseen by Robin Downing, DVM, MS, DAAPM, DACVSMR, CVPP, CCRP of the Downing Center for Animal Pain Management in Windsor Colorado, and Lori Kogan, Ph.D. and Peter W. Hellyer, DVM, MS, DACVAA, of Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, the 90-day study included 30 dogs whose owners administered HempMy Pet™ full-spectrum CBD oil while under Dr. Downing's care. Most of the participating dogs, prior to the study, were pain managed through gabapentin and/or other pain medications. One goal of the study was to, through implementation of CBD, decrease the use of these other pain medications without increasing pain levels. Prelimiary results from this trial are quite promising.
Due to the legal ambiguity of CBD, there is a lack of research and knowledge about quality control and appropriate dosage, leaving many pet owners and veterinarians hesitant to try or recommend these products. Yet, as Marc Brannigan, Co-founder and CEO of HempMy Pet™, explains, "You would not believe the testimonials we have received from our customers over the years. I am thrilled we can now back up these testimonials with clinical research."
Dr. Robin Downing states: "As a pet pain expert, I am always on the lookout for effective strategies to relieve chronic pain in my patients. My commitment to evidence-based medicine prompted my participation in this unique pilot study. I was delighted to observe that the majority of dogs enrolled in the study demonstrated a clear benefit from taking this CBD product."
Founded in 2016, HM Health, LLC, the manufacturer of HempMy Pet™, offers CBD-infused products for dogs, cats and horses. All products are made with their own, in-house strain-specific, full-spectrum hemp extract from their greenhouses and facilities located in Loveland, Colorado.
