Like people, aging, stress, and discomfort can negatively impact the happiness and daily routine of your family’s favorite dog or cat. Fortunately, the Anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol, also known as CBD, can provide relief for everyday comfort and aid in the healing process. Let’s look a little more closely at two of the leading CBD pet products in the marketplace: pet tinctures and topical pet sprays.
How CBD Can Benefit Your Pet
When given over time, CBD has shown to be effective in helping calm and positively benefit the mood of favorite household pets like dogs and cats. CBD can give them an increased sense of relaxation and well-being, and it can even reduce grumpiness and destructive behaviors.
Like people, pets have an endocannabinoid system that is receptive to CBD supplements. In addition to positively influencing your pet’s behavior and routine, full spectrum CBD can also positively affect your pet’s physical health and mobility, including chronic pain, inflammation, metabolism, mood, sleep, stress, and even skin and nerve health.
Using CBD Pet Tinctures
CBD pet tinctures can be given to your furry friend orally or with their normal food. It can be a bit tricky knowing how much to give your cat or dog the first time you use a tincture, but as a general rule of thumb, we would recommend using the following weight guide to determine how much CBD tincture you should administer.
● 5- 19 lbs - 1/4 dropper
● 20 - 29 lbs - 1/2 dropper
● 30 - 39 lbs - 3/4 dropper
● 40 - 59 lbs - 1 dropper
● 60+ lbs - 1 1/2 dropper
