We, as humans, love taking hemp-derived CBD, but did you know that your pet (dog, cat, horse) can take CBD as well? Pets have an Endocannabinoid System (which assists in maintaining balance in the body and keeps it in a normal healthy state).
What is an ECS? Check out this blog for more information.
What can CBD help pets with? CBD is a plant-based cannabinoid and studies have shown that CBD may have a variety of effects on animals due to its anti-inflammatory properties. This may assist with:
* Joint Discomfort
* Fear and Anxiety
* Pain Relief
* and for possible anti-cancer benefits (although there’s no conclusive data on this use)
How to Give CBD to Pets: CBD intake varies between different species, sizes, and shapes. Whether you’re using hemp CBD oil for anxiety or pain relief, the right dose can vary quite a bit from one situation to the next. Some animals do not have as many receptors as others and you may need to experiment to find the right amount and how often. We advise starting with a dose in the middle of the range and expect to see results in 30-60 minutes. Closely monitor your pet’s progress, if there is no change after an hour, gradually increase the dosage. Occasionally improvement will take more than one treatment.
BASIC DOSING RULE FOR CATS AND DOGS: 1-5 MG CBD FOR EVERY 10 POUNDS OF BODY WEIGHT
You can add CBD oil in a couple of different ways; you can add it to your dog’s treats, add to their food bowl, place it directly into their mouth, or you can use it as a topical to help soothe dry skin.
Fourth of July Fireworks and Pets: Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, who can become frightened or disoriented by the sound. Please resist the urge to take them to Independence Day festivities and opt instead to keep them safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered, and escape-proof area at home. On these high anxiety days, you can give CBD at least 1 hour prior to whatever sets them off (fireworks, guests coming over, car rides, separation anxiety, etc.). Keep your pet safe this July Fourth with quality CBD by Blue Botanicals, a safe and quiet spot for them at home where they can not escape if they get frightened by loud fireworks.
What should I look out for in a CBD product? Don’t only shop based on price. Higher quality CBD and purity are usually associated with a higher cost. A cheaper option could contain toxic substances such as pesticides, herbicides, or heavy metals. Make sure your CBD oil is free of additives.
