The anecdotal evidence of the medicinal benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids for animals is growing, but without approval from the FDA, veterinarians are unable to recommend helm for use in animals, and in most of the US, vets aren’t even allowed to discuss cannabis at all with pet owners. This week’s guest on the podcast is Dr. Patti Mayfield, a veterinarian and hemp farmer in Oregon, where she is also a member of the Veterinary Cannabis Society, which promotes education, safety, and legislative change surrounding the use of medical cannabis for pets. We also hear from Ben Thomas, director of the Montana Department of Agriculture about the state’s new hemp checkoff program, the first of its kind in the nation. Plus, we hear from Geoff Whaling about an IPO from Collective Growth Corporation and what this will mean for the hemp supply chain in North America.
