Just as humans can benefit from the effects of CBD oil, so can our feline friends. If your cat is suffering from inflammation, pain, anxiety, digestive issues, or any other medical ailment, then there is a good chance that CBD can help.
Cat owners have reported that CBD has helped their pets with a range of conditions including arthritis, cancer, asthma, pancreatitis, seizures and many more. Many people will also use it to help treat stress and anxiety in their bets, as CBD has been shown to help moderate production of cortisol (the stress hormone).
CBD works by activating a cat’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is important in the regulation of many important body functions such as mood, memory, appetitive, pain, inflammatory response, and more.
Of course, cats are far smaller than humans are, so they do not need as large a dose. All you have to do is add a few drops to your cat’s food each morning, and you should soon see the results. You can then increase the dosage as necessary, to find the optimum amount. A regular dose is normally considered to be 0.25 milligrams for every 1-lb of weight. Therefore, if a cat weighs 20-lb a dose would be 5mg. A strong dose is 0.5mg for every 1-lb, so a 20-lb cat would receive a 10mg dose.
To make sure that the CBD is as effective as possible, it should be administered every day. Many cat owners opt to put it in their pet’s food both in the morning and in the evening. CBD for cats comes in many forms, including as tinctures and treats, so you will be able to find the perfect way of delivering it to your beloved cat.
It is hard to measure the effectiveness of CBD on an animal, but often there is obvious improvement after a few days. If your cat is suffering, start it on a course of CBD and you should soon see some positive effects.
