While there has been previous research suggesting CBD can help with canine osteoarthritis, this study looked at both traditional CBD and CBD in a liposomal formulation, a method used to make it easier to absorb CBD, which isn’t very bioavailable on it’s own. “It’s kind of like a Trojan horse, or a water balloon” explains Halpert. “We put the CBD inside of that and the liposome itself, the balloon itself, is actually very bioavailable.”
“I have never seen an added benefit to liposomal encapsulation with these molecules” he explains “I think in theory makes a lot of sense, but we haven’t seen the data to support that at this point.”
Cannabis or hemp derived CBD products may help dogs with osteoarthritis – according to new research.

Even two weeks after the dogs stopped taking the CBD, those in the higher dose groups were still showing improvement. “This would tell us that the CBD was in fact addressing the underlying inflammatory issues” Halpert explains. “It wasn’t just masking the pain”
Other veterinarians with experience using CBD in dogs also reported seeing positive results using the drug for canine osteoarthritis.
Still, other experts disagree. Stephen Cital, a veterinary anesthesia & pain management specialist points out this study didn’t test the CBD levels in the blood after dogs ingested these two CBD options. They just looked at the outcomes in the dogs’ behavior. He’s not convinced liposomes make a difference.
The research also lends support to reports of success with CBD from dog owners, such as Zoe Lilly, who lives in Oxfordshire England with her 7 and a half year old dog Zeus – a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Zoe says she noticed Zeus getting a little stiff on one leg, so she decided to try out CBD. She says “It’s made his movement more fluid and he can play pretty well.” Zoe hasn’t noticed any negative side effects in Zeus since starting, but she does report noticing that it helps relax him before vet visits.
A diagnosis of hip dysplasia is very distressing. Not only does it mean your dog will suffer painful joints, but it can also greatly affect their mobility and quality of life. But hip dysplasia does not have to be a life-altering condition. In fact, the natural anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties of CBD oil combined with healthy lifestyle choices can help many dogs live normal, happy lives.
An April 2020 Colorado State University clinical trial studied the impact of their hemp-derived Cannabidiol (CBD) product on dogs suffering from chronic pain due to osteoarthritis. The 90-day study was overseen by Robin Downing, DVM, and included 32 dogs that had suffered from chronic arthritic pain for a minimum of 3 months. The study found that the addition of Full-spectrum Hemp (CBD) oil resulted in notable benefits (decreased pain scores, improvements in mobility, and improved quality of life) for 94% of the study dogs.

Research suggests at least 60% of dogs over the age of 7 suffer from some level of mobility problems. Cannanine cbd oil, treats, and chews have anti-inflammatory properties that target painful joints, making it easier for dogs to move around more freely – and happier too!
As a form of cannabis, hemp contains dozens of compounds called cannabinoids. Of those compounds, there’s a type called CBD. Therapeutic, non-psychoactive, and all-natural CBD is extracted from hemp and isolated to create the tincture commonly known as CBD oil. 3 While cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, CBD oil is only recently catching the public’s attention.
In July of 2018 a Study by Cornell University showed that CBD Oil administered twice daily at 2 mg/kg of dog weight can help relieve pain and increase mobility.
