Is your cat like the sourpuss Tardar Sauce whose perpetual grumpy facial expression has been the subject of several memes in social media?
Worry no more about your cat’s mood. Veterinarians today are recognizing the amazing results cannabidiol (CBD) can do in helping your cat maintain not just a positive mood but also a good health.
CBD is one of the 85 compounds that can be extracted from the cannabis sativa plant. It has been acknowledged as effective in easing anxiety, epileptic symptoms and chronic pain, among other therapeutic benefits when used in humans. CBD is equally helpful and safe for pets. Because it is capable of stimulating the endocannabinoid system, it helps your pets recover from any fear or stress they are experiencing.
However, it’s important to note that the CBD you give to your cats is derived from hemp. Hemp plants are rich in CBD and contain a negligible level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the psychoactive chemical that is present in the marijuana variety and can make its consumers high.
How to give your pets CBD
CBD can be used in several forms. CBD extracts in oil can be applied to your cat’s bare skin or inside the ears, or on their paws. Using a dropper, you can also put a small amount into their mouth or add it to their food. There are also CBD biscuits, capsules and supplements, which are more convenient to use.
The dosage is suggested to be given at 1 milligram to a maximum of 5 milligrams per 10 pounds. It’s better to experiment at the minimum level just to see how your cats will react, which may vary from one pet to another.
Vet-trusted CBD pet products
One of the best CBD pet products today is manufactured by PotNetwork Holding, Inc. (OTCMKTS:POTN). As a leader in the research and development of CBD, POTN isn’t afraid on expanding its reaches in other sectors to provide it supporters with as much room for growth as possible.
As a showcase of its stellar growth, POTN, through its new subsidiary, Blockchain Crypto Technology Corp. has recently bought a modern crypto mining facility that has 115 dedicated rigs. This new venture has solidified POTN’s foray into the crypto market. Its recent venture and the profit it gets from it could be used to further improve the company’s CBD product line.
Diamond CBD’s products are meant to address a wide variety of negative symptoms in pets with effective, non-toxic, hemp-derived CBD.
Among its products meant for cats is called Medipets for Cats, which contains 25mg of CBD oil and can be dropped into your cat’s food, treats or water bowl. Specifically for cats up to 24lbs, Medipets can be used at least one to two times a day, depending on your pet’s condition.
Another Diamond CBD cat-product is its Pet CBD Food for Cats, which is made for the elderly and ill cats. It eases their aggression disorders, self-trauma, cognitive problems, excessive vocalization, and urination/marking problems.
Last month, PotNetwork said Diamond CBD saw a victorious week at the Global Pet Expo where 200 new wholesale distributors expressed their interests to market the company’s MediPets product line to a wider customer base. This is a recognition of the company’s innovative approach in producing CBD products for health and wellness of our animal companion.
Other reliable CBD products in the market are from HempMeds, which include the Real Scientific Hemp Oil pure CBD hemp oils, which can be used for cats. HempMed boasts of its Triple Lab Teste quality, which ensures that their CBD hemp oil supplements have consistent strength and are free from contaminants such as mold and mildew, microbes, chemicals and heavy metals.
