Dr. Singh said that products rich in CBD are often most effective, though some amount of THC can help, too. He recommends vaporizing high-CBD flower when quick relief is necessary, but adds that edible oils and capsules — while taking longer to affect the user — will yield more prolonged help. Like most things cannabis, Dr. Singh emphasizes that each person’s response will vary, so working with a psychiatrist or other practitioner well-versed in cannabis medicine is important.

Speaking to Civilized, she stressed the importance of using a full-spectrum CBD product that contains multiple cannabinoids and terpenes.

But dosages vary because everyone’s endocannabinoid system works a little differently, said Ardolino, who rescues animals,. “My mini Schnauzer needs more CBD than my Doberman.”
