DAVIS (KRON)– The University of California, Davis is studying the effects of medical marijuana on pets.

The School of Veterinary Medicine is conducting a first-of-its-kind survey to learn more about the effects medical cannabis has on animals.

So far, about 400 pet owners have responded. Researchers say marijuana can treat anxiety and pain. CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant and is non-psychoactive, so pets won’t get high.WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON:
