About the talk
CBD for pets is a rapidly growing industry trend both in pet owner popularity and CBD products targeted specifically for our furry friends. While the appeal is real, the science behind how CBD can benefit other members of the animal kingdom is still developing. The endocannabinoid system exists within all of our pets from pugs to ponies, but how does CBD affect these creatures and can they truly benefit from the effects this cannabinoid offers in humans? This panel will dive into the science and skepticism surrounding CBD for pets and examine how our loyal companions stand, or sit, to benefit from its use.

Dr. Robert Silver brought his 35 years of practical clinical experience as an integrative veterinarian in Colorado to the hemp industry when he joined Folium Biosciences as their Chief Veterinary Officer. With a BS in Animal Science, a Masters in Animal Physiology, and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, all from Colorado State University, Dr. Silver is uniquely qualified in this work to benefit the Colorado hemp industry. In his many years of small animal veterinary practice in Colorado during the introduction of medical cannabis, Dr. Silver saw first-hand through his patients the clinical benefits of this plant. His training and experience as a practitioner of medical herbalism further allowed him to better understand how best to use this amazing plant. Many veterinary species are sensitive to the unbalancing effects of the psychotropic cannabinoid, THC, and thus when the Federal Farm Bill passed in 2014, Dr. Silver began looking to hemp with its naturally low THC content as the ideal format for animals. In 2015 Dr. Silver joined Folium Biosciences, and was tasked to bring hemp to the animal health market. Dr. Silver recently participated in the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s Stakeholder’s group who discussed the safety and usefulness of hemp in animal feed, and who concluded that the FDA-CVM would be most likely (at this point in time) to accept a food additive petition (FAP) for the non-controlled substance parts of the hemp plant, namely the sterilized seed, seedView the profile

So I have to start out with Dr. Silver. Could you how you got My name is Dr. Robert Silver; I am a veterinarian of 35 years’ experience holistic veterinarian. I got involved in herbal medicine early on in my career maybe 25 years ago, and I'm a product of the 60s. So when the medical laws were passed in Colorado, I thought was pretty good. But at the time I really didn't understand the medical aspect of cannabis and I started having clients coming in with their pets to my exam room and they were four per case that I was working on a working on it weren't getting better and they were
magically improving night. Ask my put my clients what's going on? How come are Fighters doing? So well. You know, we shared some of our stashes with Fido and that's why he's doing so well, so I started doing some research into the world literature and found out that in fact, there's a huge evidence about the medicinal value of cannabis in general and I've been for the last 25 years Chief Medical Officer of a Veterinary nutraceutical company so that I developed a product for this company that also has many other products I've developed and that was four years ago. And since
