The survey was conducted by a team from the Department of Clinical Sciences at the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
The survey was provided to Canna-Pet customers via its website.
Six-hundred and thirty-two people responded to the survey, with 457 using or having used a hemp product for their dog and 104 people using or having used a hemp product for their cat.
In addition to the relief from pain, 50.5 percent of the dogs and 44 percent of the cats were perceived by their owners as having either moderately or greatly improved sleep habits from the use of hemp products.
When it came to anxiety, 49.3 percent of dog owners reported that the hemp products helped moderately or a great deal. For reducing inflammation in cats, the owners perceived the products were similarly helpful in 56.3 percent of the felines.
The most common side effects reported by both dog and cat owners were sedation and overactive appetite (dogs: 22 percent, 15.9 percent; cats: 19.2 percent and 16 percent).
