CBD for Pets: What's Best for Cats?

In this blog, the GN staff members share their short list of the best CBD products for cats. Are you giving CBD to a pet? If so, which one and how is it working?

I do, but it’s my opinion you can use any unflavored full spec hemp oil, it does not need to be specifically for pets.

In your case, what condition do you use it for and how does it work for your pet?

I use it as a tonic for them. They are generally healthy, with the exception of challenges with their teeth. If I know we are going to be away for the day, I’ll put it in their food. When the little one was having upset stomach, I gave him full spec oil and probiotics. It’s not needed consistently.

A small cloud of CBD vapor in the general direction of my cat is how I administer. My cat seems to let me know when she wants CBD. Funny how it’s really an evening thing for both of us.
I never force anything and don’t spike food.
She is picky didn’t try CBD treats. Just see how things go for now. It’s a really great way to bond being I rescued as a kitten. She still plays daily. Lots of energy. Keyna is her name Key Na.
My cat also knows when I walk in the door with something really good!

Beautiful cat! It’s very cool that she associates the vapor with feeling good.

You mentioned putting it on their food, which I used to do. We had a CBD pet line speak recently at my networking event, and she said it should be used as a tincture instead. Do you know if that is true?

Thank you @amy I’m not a vet or herbalist, so I wouldn’t know. I can tell if I give them a bit more, they sleep a bit more. I think the prices on many of these products are too high. Since I broker raw products, I think manufacturers could make them more affordable. I buy CBD for my mother’s nephropathy, if I didn’t get it wholesale it wouldn’t be affordable for her in the dosage she needs. The same for the pet tinctures and treats, I think they could be more affordable. Sorry, I went on a side rant. Cats aren’t fun to give meds to, so I’ll stick to the food.

Hahaha I know! I have one cat who takes it right from the dropper, the other won’t come near me for 2 days.

I am unsure of the food vs tincture, just what I was told. I’d rather put it on their food, if it’s still good to do. It’s just easier that way. :slight_smile:
