Canopy Growth Corporation announced on Wednesday that it has received approval from Health Canada for clinical trials into the effectiveness of cannabidiol (CBD) in treating animals with anxiety.
According to Dana M. Vaughn, executive vice-president and chief scientific officer for Canopy Animal Health, it is the first time a company has sought and received federal regulatory approval to add cannabis-derived substances to pet food. 

Vaughn’s hope is that the trial will showcase solid evidence demonstrating how CBD affects different animal species and different animal sizes. 

So far, research into the possibility of CBD as an animal anti-anxiety has been sparse, if there is any at all and as a result any evidence is largely anecdotal, something Canopy hopes to change.
