Research collaboration with University of Bologna

Research collaboration with University of Bologna


We are proud to announce that we have signed a research collaboration with the University of Bologna and their Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences for a range of studies for the effect of cannabidiol (CBD) in animals.

Professor Roberto Chiocchetti DVM, PhD. and his team from Department of Veterinary Medical Science are very well respected for their extensive veterinary medical science research and have published more than 60 publications to date.

Formula Swiss AG was founded in 2013 and now produce more than one hundred different CBD products in Switzerland for clients in 58 countries. Formula Swiss will support the research teams with products, formulations, knowledge and research funding.

With the collaboration between Professor Roberto Chiocchetti´s team of experts researchers and Formula Swiss in Switzerland, we will gain valuable knowledge about the reactions and results of cannabidiol (CBD) in animals to the benefit of not just the animals, but everyone interested in learning more about the effect of cannabinoids for animals.

The first research study on cats is publicly available for free

The first study "Localization of cannabinoid and cannabinoid related receptors in the cat gastrointestinal tract" is available.

Cannabinoid receptors showed a wide distribution in the feline gastrointestinal tract layers. Although not yet confirmed/supported by functional evidences, the present research might represent an anatomical substrate potentially useful to support, in feline species, the therapeutic use of cannabinoids during gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases.

Many more studies on CBD for animals planned

The next study will be CBD for horses followed by several other studies of the effect of CBD for different animals.
