Veterinarians May Now Consult With Pet Owners Regarding THC and CBD

Governor Whitmer recently signed into law House Bill 5085 which now allows veterinarians to consult with pet owners in regards to administering marijuana or industrial hemp to their pets .  Prior to House Bill 5085 veterinarians were at risk of loosing their veterinarian license if they consulted with pet owners regarding marijuana or industrial hemp. Although industrial hemp is legal under federal laws, marijuana remains illegal as it is a schedule one controlled substance.   Industrial hemp would refer to cannabis or cannabis products that contain less than .3% delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Currently the market for industrial hemp primarily focuses on cannabidiol (CBD).  CBD has been shown to be beneficial in treating or assisting with the treatment of a wide variety of medical issues that affect our pets.  Many pet owners were currently were administering CBD to their dogs to treat conditions like epilepsy or arthritis but without the consultation or advice of their veterinarian.  Now both pet owners and veterinarians can engage in a free and open dialogue regarding the medical use of marihuana and industrial hemp.  This could also be a benefit to the businesses of veterinarians who decide to embrace industrial hemp and offer the products at their office.

If you are a veterinarian or pet owner and have questions on how this new law impacts you or your pet please give us a call at the Michigan Cannabis Lawyers. (517)-512-8364.
