  • A recently published study suggests that CBD can significantly alleviate both car travel stress and “home alone” stress in canine companions
  • The researchers showed that a single dose of 4 mg/kg CBD given 2 hours before the stress-inducing event reduced some indicators of acute canine stress, and is likely to improve canine emotional wellbeing
  • Both acute and chronic stress can take a toll on your dog’s health; when stress is prolonged, it’s associated with shortened lifespan and increased susceptibility to infections
