A study performed by the Department of Clinical Sciences at Colorado State University sought to determine the pharmacokinetics of cannabidiol (CBD) in dogs. Pharmacokinetics examines the bodily absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of drugs.
The study performed involved the participation of 30 healthy dogs. Each dog was treated with one of three CBD treatments: oral CBD oil beads, oral CBD oil or CBD skin cream. The dosages were 75mg or 150mg every 12 hours for 6 weeks, with the CBD treatments being dose-proportional. Cannabidiol levels in the dogs’ blood were measured over the course of the 6-week study. The experiment demonstrated that that oral dosages of CBD oil had the best pharmacokinetic profile, as this delivery method demonstrated the highest concentrations of cannabidiol retention in the dogs’ system.
