Regarding CBD oil.
My avian vet sells it.
He’s taken care of my Umbrella cockatoo for 23 years now so I pretty much trust him.
And I read your articles and concerns.
I think one of the problems here is that there is a huge disparity in the types being sold.
You basically don’t know what you are buying.
So here is my experience.
I started researching various brands before I tried it.
And I talked to my nephew who is a grower.
He recommended Medterra.
Now I am NOT a representative for them.
But then my acupuncturist recommended it, my cat vet recommended it, my MIL took it, and avian Dr recommended it.
And I researched the company.
The ONLY hemp grown and monitored in the USA.
The COA they have monitors facilities and growing practices and purity.
It has helped my arthritis, fibromyalgia (NO flares in 6 months) and anxiety.
My cat – who the vet had proscribed Prozac for aggression to other cats and other issues, is doing better.
And Koko, my umbrella cockatoo has less screaming and biting (she goes after my husband, not me).
She gets 1 drop a day.
It’s not brown.
It’s clean in a light oil base.
While you say the FDA has not evaluated it, it has been used for hundreds of years.
In fact, when I worked with growers many years ago we saw birds and other wildlife in our fields.
They obviously knew then what others are just coming to realize now.
The plant has many healthy uses and properties.
So waiting for the FDA, to my mind, is just waiting for the government and big pharma figure out how to exploit it for the highest dollar they can.
This is just my humble opinion.
I understand you want to see scientific research.
But there have been lots of drugs approved based on this so-called research only to turn around and kill people later.
So I guess I have to go on the unscientific research of people and animals who have used it successfully for hundreds of years.
I will post your comment as well as this one
Thanks for that excellent article and point of view on CBD Oil.
Yes I have several FB bird friends using it successfully however my avian vet agrees with you.
Her concern is as yours, long term effects.
I have a happy very healthy Hannah and my vet says to ignore her mild hormonal chest feather picking 🙂
Have a GREY’T week!

I had to comment about CBD oil even tho I have zero experience with it.
It is being touted as a type of cure all for humans and pets.
I am suspicious of anything that is supposed to be a cure all for just about any kind of problem. More research please.
Until then I won’t touch it and neither will any of my animals.
Thank you all for your thoughtful comments.
I’ve been doing research for my latest content piece and your website attracted my attention.
Moreover, it was very useful to me, and I believe we can return the favor by offering you some content which seems like something your readership could be interested in.
My team and I have prepared a high-quality infographic about CBD statistics and industry trends. The graphics are excellent and the data is presented in an eye-catching and practical way, so it is quite memorable. It contains some basics on CBD and its benefits, the CBD vs THC rivalry, how you can use CBD, and plenty of facts and statistics on the CBD industry and its legal status.
I was hoping you could spare a moment to look at it and judge if it’s relevant? If you’re interested please let me know and I’ll send you the link ASAP!
P.S. If you do decide to post it, we can send you a complementary write-up tailored to your site.
Looking forward to your reply!

Unfortunately, I’ve been in a bit of an anti-CBD oil rant of late.
