A NEW STUDY REVEALS MARIJUANA HELPS DOGS WITH EPILEPSY HAVE FEWER SEIZURES COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY PRESENTED THE RESEARCH TODAY AT THE COLORADO CONVENTION CENTER IT WAS A VETERINARY MEDICINE CONFERENCE, AND OUR MELISSA GARCIA WAS THERE MELISSA, SOUNDS LIKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT DREW A PACKED HOUSE REPORTER: JIM, THE FACT THAT IT WAS SUCH A FULL HOUSE TELLS US JUST HOW HOT THE TOPIC IS

WE'VE SEEN CBD HELP KIDS WITH SEIZURE, SO IT MAY COME AS NO SURPRISE THAT IT COULD ALSO HELP CANINES DOG OWNERS POST COUNTLESS VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE, AND IT CAN BE SCARY WHEN YOUR DOG HAS A SEIZURE UNFORTUNATELY EPILEPSY IS FAIRLY COMMON IN DOG REPORTER: IN SEARCH OF A BETTER TREATMENT FOR CANINE EPILEPSY DR MCGRAFF AND HER TEAM HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE EFFECTS OF AN INGREDIENT IN MARIJUANA ON SEIZURE-SUFFERING DOGS

AT THIS POINT WE DON'T HAVE GREAT DRUGS TO TREAT THE DISEASE, SO WE'RE ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR A NEWER AND BETTER DRUG REPORTER: SHE SAYS FOR SOME PETS THE PHARMACEUTICAL MS ON THE MARKET DON'T WORK OR CAUSE UNMANAGEABLE SIDE EFFECTS IN A PILOT STUDY LOOKING AT 16 POOCH PATIENTS, THEY HAD GOOD RESULTS VERY ENCOURAGING WE SAW A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION OF SEIZURES IN THE TREATMENT GROUP

REPORTER: A BENEFIT DOG OWNER PAM AND HER FURRY FRIEND FERGUSON KNEW MONTHS AGO HE BECAME HAPPIER REPORTER: AFTER STARTING HIM ON CBD HIS TWO TO THREE SEIZURES A DAY DROPPED DOWN TO TWO TO THREE SEIZURES A MONTH I THINK IT COULD HELP A LOT OF DOGS REPORTER: AND IF THE PRELIMINARY RESEARCH HOLDS TRUE, IT COULD

ALTHOUGH REALLY EXCITING RESULTS, IT STILL MUST BE TAKEN WITH A GRAIN OF SALT BECAUSE THE POWER OF THE STUDY IS DIMINISHED WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE A LOT OF DOGS INVOLVED REPORTER: EXPERTS SAY IT WILL TAKE A BIGGER STUDY TO CONFIRM THE FINDINGS, AND CSU HAS JUST RECEIVED A BIG GRANT TO DO JUST THAT BY THE WAY, IT'S STILL ILLEGAL
