Dr. Stephanie McGrath—CBD researcher and our hero!

honoring Dr. Mcgrath on International Day of Women and girls in science

We couldn’t let International Day of Women and Girls in Science go by without heaping praise on our own favorite women in science—Dr. Stephanie McGrath. Dr. McGrath is an absolute rising star in the field of veterinary CBD research and she’s leading the pack with cutting edge clinical trials and groundbreaking discoveries about dogs with epilepsy and other neurological diseases. Of course we’re biased because we’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. McGrath on all three of her clinical trials, but we think no matter who you are, you’re bound to be blown away by this veterinary superstar.

Dr. McGrath is not only a veterinarian, a researcher, a professor, a mother, and a true animal lover…she’s also a podcast star! Check out this terrific and informative podcast from that features Dr. McGrath and her CBD research at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences:

We are filled with gratitude and admiration for Stephanie McGrath and her pioneering research with veterinary CBD oil. Thanks to her pilot study that showed an 89% reduction in seizure frequency using our oil, the AKC’s Canine Health Foundation has launched a larger trial that also uses our CBD oil. This type of research and positive results will allow more dogs to achieve a better quality of life in the very near future as more and more vets become comfortable discussing CBD oil benefits and uses with their patients.

Three cheers for Dr. McGrath and for all the women and girls who are shining in the field of science!

    My 4 lb pomeranian started having seizures two years ago. With the trust of course of my 20 year plus relationship with my vet….she started out on phenobarbital. She continued to have small tic seizures and once a month 2 minute seizures. She graduated to Three meds….Pheno….Zonisamide…and Potassium Bromide. I’ve kept a journal on my sweet pom from the start. She starting having coughing episodes once on the Bromide….and then tic like seizures everytime she coughed. As of this last March when she had a 2 minute plus seizure….I jumped online and found this amazing story of Dr.McGrath. Without hesitation I purchased some CBD oil and started to give it to my Pom. I took her off the Bromide the same day. Well….the results are actually stunning. As of today May 6, 2020….she has had zero tic seizures….and zero 2 minute seizures….I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to relieve my fur baby of this debilitating health issue. I just left a voicemail for my Vet to further discuss moving forward with CBD and hopefully weaning her off all her meds all together. Thank you so much for your insight and giving us hope for health in our fur babies….
