ABSC Pure Organic CBD Oil™ Helps Jackson Lives His Best Life

Here at ABSC Organics, we’re often talking about dogs. Our clinical research (so far) has been conducted on dogs, most of the conversation about CBD and animals revolves around dogs, and the bulk of our customers are buying ABSC Pure Organic CBD Oil™ for canine companions. Nevertheless, we do offer a cat product, because we know that many people are successfully using it to help their feline friends. Today, we want to introduce you to Jackson. We’ll let his owner—Kristen B.—tell his story. She was kind enough to send us his tale recently, along with some terrific pictures:

Jackson’s Story

“Jackson is 5.5 years old and has had nasty seizures since he was 1 year old. He was a patient at the clinic I worked at and brought in initially as a barn kitten with a bad eye. He had the eye removed, but had a difficult time coming out of the anesthesia. He was neurologic and couldn’t walk in a straight line. I took him home since the people who brought him in didn’t want to return him to his barn given his condition.”

Seizures and CBD

“Jackson eventually made a recovery, but then after about a year, he started having really violent seizures—so bad that he would run in a circle like the tasmanian devil and often would tear toenails off in the process. He started on gabapentin, then moved to phenobarbital, eventually we had to add zonisamide, and eventually we had to add levetiracetam. About two years ago, I started Jackson on CBD oil. After we started it, his seizure frequency diminished. The CBD oil seemed to really help keep the seizures at bay—and when he would have one, the severity was diminished and he wouldn’t have another in immediate succession a few days later.” 

A Bad Reaction to a Different Brand

“Recently, Jackson has begun to have a terrible reaction to the brand of CBD oil he has been taking. For some reason, even after two years of taking it without incident, he began to drool and vomit after being dosed with it—this is a HUGE problem because sometimes when he would vomit, it would include vomiting his other seizure medication. This development was devastating to me because I didn’t want to have to change his regimen. I want to give him the best life possible for as long as possible and the CBD oil was part of that effort. I purchased gelatin capsules to put the CBD oil in and began to pill him with it, but the capsules were just too big and hard and eventually he seemed to lose interest in eating; I believe they were irritating his throat, and seeing as I have to pill him 5 other times during the day, it was affecting his quality of life.” 

ABSC Organics Offers a Solution

ABSC Pure Organic CBD Oil™ has helped Jackson stop vomiting.

“This is why I sought out ABSC. I had been trying for months to figure out which oil was being used by CSU in their research, but had no luck. I had a friend who went to vet school there and she didn’t know either. Finally I found it in an article online and I ordered it. I was so excited to start Jackson on it and was hoping it would allow me to continue his normal regimen. 

Jackson has NO reaction to this CBD oil. I think any reaction he does still have (and he does, because he’s a drama queen) is leftover from what he *thinks* is going to happen when he gets his CBD. But when I dose him with the ABSC oil, he doesn’t drool, he doesn’t run away, he doesn’t vomit. It must be because the flavor is so mild – I even tried the two to compare and the other oil we had is definitely more bitter. 

I don’t know what caused him to start having a bad reaction to the other oil—but I have to tell you that I am so thankful that we did get the bottle of ABSC oil. I can continue him on his anti-seizure regimen and feel good that his quality of life is being preserved. I just wanted you to know Jackson’s story. We really appreciate your product and now that I see how easily he takes it, I’ll be switching brands. Thanks for your understanding—and for your amazing customer service.”
