About this Research Topic
While cannabinoids show considerable therapeutic potential in the management of osteoarthritis, epilepsy, pain and other conditions, there is currently a paucity in adequately controlled studies and data to confirm the safe and effective use in these indications. Considering the current knowledge and research gap, the goal of this Research Topic is to consolidate recent findings and results of high-quality research on the safety and efficacy of cannabis-derivatives in animal species. This in turn will serve as a basis for further discussions and investigations in this growing therapeutic area.
In line with the main goal, this Research Topic focuses on research advances in knowledge and clinical use of cannabis-derivatives in veterinary medicine and welcomes Original Research, Case Reports and Reviews.
Examples of topics that will be considered are:
- Therapeutic use of cannabinoids in animals
- Pharmacokinetic investigations of cannabis-derivatives
- In vivo / in vitro pharmacodynamic studies of molecules associated with cannabis
- Cannabis-related intoxications of animals
- Safety of chronic cannabinoid administration in animals
