What is CBD Oil for Cats?
CBD Oil for Cats is similar to the CBD Oils you love to use for yourself. Nature’s Script’s Hemp Extract Oil for pets contains the same human-grade ingredients that you find in our traditional CBD Oils with the exception of grapeseed oil. While we use the same elements in our human and animal oils, the formulations and flavors of our products differ for pets. For example, our pet blend contains MCT Oil as the main ingredient due to its ability to help your cats better absorb our CBD.
We offer our pet CBD Oils in chicken and beef flavor for an enhanced experience for your feline friends.
How Does CBD for Cats Work?
CBD has the potential to boost your pet’s health and wellness through the power of the Endocannabinoid System, or ECS. All mammals possess this biological network of receptors, endocannabinoids and enzymes that promote balance and proper function. Although undiscovered until the late 1980s, the ECS is thought to be responsible for regulating several body functions, including pain sensation, sleep, appetite, memory, mood, reproduction, oil secretion and more.
Preliminary studies suggest that CBD works with the body in the same way as the cannabinoids produced within the body, also known as endocannabinoids. This potential gives both people and animals hope when it comes to using CBD for a range of discomforts.
How to Give CBD Oil to Cats
You can administer Pet CBD Oil directly from the dropper. However, some pets may not feel comfortable receiving their daily serving of CBD in this way. Fortunately for you and for them, you can also mix CBD Oil with food or water as an effective distribution method.
Be mindful that your pet may not finish all the contents of their food or water bowl in one sitting which may affect their CBD Oil dosage.
You can also sprinkle CBD Oil on a snack or a little salami, as a treat.
CBD Oil Dosage for Cats
While we cannot provide the exact CBD Oil dosage for every cat or breed, we can give you a recommendation for finding the perfect serving size for your precious feline. A good rule of thumb is a one to five milligram serving for every 10 lbs.
Start with a smaller dose and gradually increase their intake as you see fit. Keeping a written log can help you track your cat’s reaction to various serving sizes.
This dosing guide gives you a more specific milligram dosage based on your cat’s weight.
Is CBD Oil Safe for Cats?
Our Hemp Extract Oil for Pets is a human-grade product that is safe to use on furry friends of all sizes. We use only the necessities in our pet oil formulation: MCT Oil, Hemp Oil, Hemp Extract and natural flavoring. These four key ingredients maximize the effectiveness of our oil for your pet, while ensuring they are receiving a clean product.
As a plant-based substance, our CBD Oil for Cats is not associated with any adverse or fatal side effects for your four-legged companion. If you suspect that you’ve given your pet too much CBD, he or she may feel a little more sluggish than usual, but after some rest and relaxation they should return to their normal state.
Safe hemp products begin at the seed. Fortunately, Nature’s Script sources our premium Industrial Hemp from licensed American farmers who hold their crops to the highest standard. All our raw materials come with a certificate of analysis (COA) that confirms each batch is free of pesticides, heavy metals, mycotoxins and other harmful components – so you know you’re getting the best for your fur family.
We craft our hemp-derived pet products in-house so that we can verify the processes that go into making your cat’s wellness goods. Each batch of oils is lab tested in an ISO-certified third-party laboratory for a final quality check, and we publish the test results right on our website for you to view.
Will CBD get my cat high?
No, CBD will not cause your pet to experience a “high.” CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in Hemp plants. However, many confuse this cannabinoid for the well-known compound, delta-9-tetrahydracannabinol, or THC – the psychoactive cannabinoid found in high levels in marijuana plants, which causes a high in humans and is toxic to animals.
We test our raw materials and final products to ensure they contain less than 0.3% THC – the federal legal limit and not nearly enough to cause any psychoactive effects for you or your pets.
Benefits of CBD for Cats
Because Hemp-derived CBD products are such a new phenomenon, there is still much to be discovered regarding their uses and efficacy as a wellness solution. Nonetheless, many pet owners are using CBD Oil for cats to address daily stressors and behavioral concerns and finding success. CBD Oil for Cats may deliver a number of lifestyle benefits for your feline friends:
Reduced Stress & Anxiety – CBD for cats may help alleviate the stress your pet feels in certain situations: thunderstorms, travel, separation, vet visits, etc. By promoting relaxation, CBD Oil may reduce your cat’s anxiety, allowing them to feel calmer in most situations.
Improved Sleep Quality – The calming nature of CBD Oil may help lull your hyperactive cat into a refreshing slumber. Although cats spend much of their days sleeping, CBD for cats may encourage a more rejuvenating rest.
General Wellness Boost – Not only does Nature’s Script’s CBD Oil for cats offer a potent concentration of premium CBD in each serving, but the additional ingredients also add wellness benefits to their life. For example, MCT oil aids in your cat’s digestion, skin quality and more to keep them balanced.
Increased Comfort – As animals age, they tend to develop some level of joint discomfort. CBD Oil for cats may soothe some of this discomfort to promote mobility, especially for older cats.
