Okay guys. This is the first of many blogs that will outline my research on the popular topic of CBD for cats. It’s amazing how much information is out there regarding CBD – so it’s difficult to find definitive information on this currently trendy product.
From my research, I can confidently say that using CBD for cats with different ailments is helpful. The issue, however, is with the CBD itself. From what I’ve learned so far, I can tell you this…
Not all CBD is created equal.
Because CBD is a natural remedy, it’s not going to work precisely the same with each patient. That’s just the way natural medicine goes. However, because CBD has grown so quickly in popularity, some companies have come out with sub-par CBD products in an efforts to exploit the market for pets.
There are many ways that these companies go about making cheap products that just don’t work (I will go more into this in the next blog), but for now here are a few things that I’ve learned:
- The quality of CBD is determined by the way that it’s grown (organic vs. non-organic).
- The potency of CBD is determined by how it’s extracted from the plant.
- Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are different.
- If the product is not tested by a third party, you should proceed with caution.
Companies who promote and sell quality CBD for cats should be more than willing to answer questions and reveal their processing. Before purchasing CBD for your kitty, get to know the company that makes it first. With so many options on the market it’s important that we choose a brand we can trust.
CBD can help cats who suffer from seizures, IBD, anxiety, chronic pain and other issues and ailments – and as this market grows, cat owners are continuing to discover ways that CBD can be helpful and healthful for their kitties. It’s definitely something we can recommend that you explore. Just remember to do some research before purchasing and get to know your source!
