Sean Denver, Colorado 10/19/2014 4:20:12 PM My dog developed idiopathic epilepsy at 6 years old. He had a consistent cluster of them everyday for almost a week. I decided to try Cannabis to treat this. I researched for days and found that CBD has been used to control the seizures. I also found evidence that cannabis oil has been used since the 1400's to treat epileptic patients. I have found consistent results using Cannabis oil with my dog using all the chemicals in it. CBD, THCA, THCV, Delta 9 THC and so on all have muscle spasm control properties. Also it seems as though it is a CNS depressant as well which controls his triggers. I found the triggers are really quite simple, basically anything that creates stress in the brain. This means anything that excites him as well. Excitement causes stress through anxious personalities which most canines are. The best part is I don't even have to use that much, I have found that just less than .25 of a gram a day will work. I use tincture which you can easily purchase in a medical dispensary or make it yourself (google it). If your dog is suffering, at least try it, you have nothing to lose. I know they say marijuana is toxic to your pet but you need to understand this is relative. There a lot of dumb people out there that will leave there "stash" out and the dog could get very ill or even die. Sure if you give a 2 lb. dog an ounce of weed he's going to get very sick. Use common sense, this is all experimental. However I can tell you first hand, cannabis (not just CBD) has worked 100% to stop my dogs seizures.
