Apparently humans aren’t the only one stressed out these days.
Two African elephants in Poland will be given medical cannabidiol or CBD to help them relax.
Fredzia and Buba live in the Warsaw zoo and are suffering from stress.
The two female elephants have been fighting since March after the death of the head of the herd.
The zoo says that the animals can have a hard time establishing a new position in the group after a loss.
CBD oil has been given by the zoo veterinarians to dogs and horses with good results.
They expect that the substance will help lower the elephants’ level of stress hormones as well.
If Fredzia and Buba become calmer, other animals at the zoo will receive the same treatment.
