If you are like most pet owners you want the best for him or her to live a happy, high quality of life. However, many first-time CBD users have many questions regarding CBD for their loved one. How much to give them? How often should I give them a dose? How do I know if the CBD is working? But first let us explain what CBD is and how it works.
What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a beneficial chemical found in the Hemp Plant. We call these Phyto (plant) cannabinoids. There are over 100 phytocannabinoids found within the hemp plant when it is processed. Another one many know is THC, the phytocannabinoid responsible for giving the user a buzz or high.
In contrast, the Hemp plant is bred for industrial use and has a THC content of 0.3% or less of THC and about 30-40% of CBD. Whereas, Marijuana is bred to have high THC levels, usually 30% within the plant, and very low levels of CBD. So Hemp extract Cannabidiol will never get you or your furry buddy high or buzzed. This confusion remains the biggest obstacle in why people hesitate in using CBD.
What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
The ECS was discovered in the 1990’s by researchers, so it is relatively new as far as research goes. What we know now is that this system lies on the periphery of your Central Nervous System and is a cell-signaling system. It is also responsible for your Homeostasis functions, i.e. pain, appetite, body temperature, and many more. This system is essential in keeping you alive.
Furthermore, how CBD works is like your front door, allowing people you know to enter (helpful compounds to enter) and blocking intruders or strangers from entering (harmful compounds from entering). For example, blocking a pain signal in your back.
What is amazing is that all mammals have this ECS, so you and your pet have the same biological system in regards to the ECS (theirs just a bit smaller). So what CBD can do for you, it can also do the same for your cat or dog or any other (mammal) pet you have.
Toxin Free CBD can help your pet with discomfort, fear, sleep, and age-related issues. Pretty much anything that is preventing him or her from receiving a high quality of life. Essentially, the nutrient-rich hemp oil acts like a multivitamin kick starting the ECS to function at an optimal level as it once did when they were a puppy or kitten.
How Much do I give Mr. Marbles?
How will I know if it is working?
Like in humans, everyone’s dosage will be different and will take a week or so to find the right dosage. As a general rule of thumb, we suggest to give 2-4 drops per 10lbs. of body weight twice a day. Generally, a bigger dog or horse will require more.
Watch their behavior over the next few days, and if no change then add another dose or two, and repeat this a few days later. Make a note of how much, then this will be their dosage.
Note: if you give too much, they might take a nap or become sleepy.
For example, our President of MD Organics has a few cats in their teens and after a week of use they started to play-fight and run around like they did when they were babies. When nothing else in their diet had changed, he knew it was the CBD working.
He gave a dropper full of the 250mg CBD tincture oil 1-2x a day, or about 8mg of CBD, and they weigh roughly ten pounds each.
So even though most pets can’t human talk lol. They will show you in other ways. And trust us, you will notice it. Maybe, it is in the form of more energy, or playfulness, or calm demeanor, or better mobility, or more affection towards you. How intimate one is with their pet, you know when something has changed.
Are there any Side-Effects?
Reported side-effects have been minor at best, these include:
- Dry mouth
- Low blood sugar
- Poor stools
How do I administered the Oil?
This depends on what your cat or dog will let you do. You can open their mouths and squirt the dropper directly into the mouth, or on the side of a closed mouth. Also, you can put some oil on your fingertips and rub it into the gums. In addition, you can mix the oil in with their food or treats.
The CBD dog or cat treats are an easier option if your pet objects to having his/her mouth touched.
We know how much you love your pet, they are part of your family and you want the best for them to live a long, healthy life. Many of us are now seeking Natural and Organic solutions to health issues instead of a synthetic drug that burdens the small liver of your pets.
Just like humans your pets tiny Liver has to work overtime to filter bad food, bad water, toxins found in medications, and all the rest of the bad stuff that goes into their bodies. So why burden it anymore?
More importantly, make sure the CBD is from the U.S. and is THC Free and Organic. Also, make sure they have viewable or available Independent Lab Reports showing you exactly what the chemical makeup is of the CBD. Doing this will help ensure you are getting a quality product.
