How to use CBD products for your animals?

CBD products such as CBD oil can be given to your pet as we humans receive it, primarily via our mouth. There may be some situations where there are other methods, but this you should consult your veterinarian about. You can easily mix a few drops of CBD in your cat’s or dog’s food, water or treats, or as with humans consume it directly. If you believe it is best for your pet to receive the CBD oil directly, be sure to use a pipette and gently drip the CBD oil onto the gum line. Keep an eye on your pet afterwards and of course make sure you start with a very low strength.

 

In general, it is a good idea to consult a veterinarian and get a consultation before you start giving your pet CBD. First and foremost, to see how your animal is doing, but further to double check if there may be interactions with their normal medication that potential can be harmful. All animals are different and it will take some time to get them used to the taste of CBD (just like with humans). Feel free to try several different methods and try as much as possible to make a routine out of it. This makes them adjust quicker and their bodies will, moving forward, be more adaptable.

 

The most frequently asked questions regarding CBD for animals

To give you a better overview, we have gathered the most frequently asked questions regarding CBD for animals.

 

  • What animals can I use CBD products on?

Theoretically, all animals can use CBD products, but with smaller animals, finding the right dosage can be more challenging. Dogs, cats and horses are the animals for which it is “most normal” to give CBD. No matter what animal we are talking about or its size, it is extremely important that you do a thorough research and contact your veterinarian for a consultation to make sure your animal gets the best possible experience out of CBD.

 

  • How do I get started the best way possible?

First of all, find out what “is wrong with your pet” and how you would solve this challenge without the use of CBD. CBD is not a miracle cure that solves everything, but rather an alternative to give your pet an easier and better everyday life. Once you have made the decision that you would like to try CBD for your pet, for example, do a thorough research and follow this up with a visit to your vet. Let them know what you want your pet to get out of using CBD and whether it can potentially be done. Last but not least, keep in mind that animals do not choose the medicine they take, i.e. you have to pay extra attention to the signals your animal and its body is telling you.

 

  • Is there a possibility that the animal may get high from using CBD?

No, you can be quite safe when using for example CBD oil for your pet. The only thing you need to be aware of is of course where you buy CBD and the quality of this. The same “rules” apply to animals as well as humans, so make sure it is of the highest quality and that it is bought somewhere where there are a lot of positive reviews and information about the various products.

 

  • Is there a difference between CBD for animals and humans?

CBD for humans and animals are both derived from the cannabis / hemp plant. But there are other differences that one must be aware of. CBD products for animals are developed specifically for animals and are “branded” in relation to the industry standard. Since there are different types of CBD for humans; isolates, broad spectrum and full spectrum where you can choose different strengths, there may be a possibility that animals cannot tolerate it. Therefore, you should always find CBD products that are exclusively for animals and do not try to experiment with mixing the two.
