Green Gruff Veterinary debuts canine CBD supplements
The patent-pending chews include 5mg of full-spectrum cannabidiol and 400mg of glucosamine.
Green Gruff Veterinary has unveiled Green Gruff Veterinary EASE Joint & Hip—a full-spectrum cannabidiol (CBD) chew that uses a science-backed formulation to enhance canine mobility and joint health.
According to a company release1, clinical trials were conducted by Companion Sciences' investigators using an experimental and control group of rats. The study found that after administering Green Gruff Veterinary EASE Joint & Hip, the concentration of glucosamine increased in blood plasma and synovial fluid in comparison to glucosamine alone. These trials also displayed no negative effects or anomalies, supporting the safety of Green Gruff Veterinary’s ingredients, according to the company.
“I’m proud to work with an innovative company that’s driving the use of cannabinoids to enhance the effectiveness of glucosamine to support dogs with osteoarthritis,” said Jeffrey Powers, DVM, chief veterinary officer of Green Gruff, and chairman emeritus of the American Veterinary Medical Association's council of biologics and therapeutics and working group on cannabis, in the release.1
The patent-pending chews include 5mg of full-spectrum CBD and 400mg of glucosamine. The main ingredient is cricket protein, which contains the 9 essential amino acids for improving the gut microbiome and decreasing inflammation.1
“When Green Gruff was founded in 2019, we were the first truly sustainable organic supplements for dogs with a mission to create science-backed, proven-effective CBD supplements,” said Jonathan Persofsky, CEO and co-founder of Green Gruff Veterinary, in the release.1
“As 80% of dogs will show signs of arthritis by age 8 [years], we’re hopeful these findings prove that Green Gruff Veterinary EASE Joint & Hip can assist with keeping dogs’ joints healthy, while they’re young and as they age,” he added.
Green Gruff Veterinary is exclusively sold through registered veterinary clinics and animal hospitals.
