Pioneer Cannabis-For-Pets Veterinarian Dr. Katherine Kramer’s Educational Webinar is Now Available Online
VERNON, BC (October 23, 2018) – Just five days after the legalization of marijuana in Canada, 117 people tuned in to hear what it means for pets. Members of the media who would like to learn more about cannabis for pets are invited to watch the 40-minute webinar, hosted by Dr. Katherine Kramer, DVM, available online at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_4F_8p-IkI&feature=youtu.be.
Dr. Kramer is a vocal advocate for the research and therapeutic use of cannabis for animals. She is the Founding Chair of True Leaf Medicine International Ltd.’s (CSE: MJ) (OTCQB: TRLFF) (FSE: TLA) Veterinary Advisory Board, where she leads education and the research and development of therapeutic cannabis products for pets, and the Medical Director at the VCA-Canada Vancouver Animal Wellness Hospital.
During the webinar, Dr. Kramer shared:
- What is cannabis and how does it affect pets? A breakdown of the many elements of the marijuana plant, including CBD and THC, and how the plant can be used medicinally for animals. New discoveries show that endocannabinoids play a role in almost every physiological process in the body. Can cannabis be more effective than previously thought?
- The challenges of legalization: With the growing popularity of medical cannabis for people suffering from pain, more pet owners today are naively administering unsafe cannabis products to their pets. What is marijuana toxicosis? What can pet owners do to keep their pets safe?
- The opportunities: Canadian veterinarians have an opportunity to lead the way in cannabis-for-pets research. But what can pet owners do today if they want to treat their pet with hemp and cannabis? How can cannabis therapies be administered safely and effectively?
