Pet owners love CBD oil for dogs and cats almost as much as their pets do—few things are better than finding a way to improve your animal’s quality of life.
Pets & The Endocannabinoid System
Many owners incorporate CBD into their pets’ regimens to promote health, balance, and well-being on a long-term, daily basis.
All mammals have endocannabinoid systems (ECS). The ECS is a network of neurotransmitters and cannabinoid receptors that spreads throughout the body.
It is intimately involved in nearly every physiological process and contributes to homeostasis, a state of biological balance crucial to mental and physical health.
This is why the benefits of CBD for pets are so extensive: cannabinoids promote well-being in animals much in the way that they do for humans.
Using Pet CBD Oil Tinctures
The technical details of administering CBD oil to your animal on a daily basis can get tricky.
Naturally, many cats and dogs aren’t comfortable with a glass dropper in their mouth or an unknown tincture on their tongue. The resulting struggle or resistance can create a difficult experience for all involved.
As Mass Apothecary customers know, the positive benefits of CBD for pets outweigh those few negative moments of administering a tincture from a dropper.
That said, we care about your animals, and we want to eliminate any distress involved in the process of administering CBD for Pets.
If you’re lucky enough to have a pet that doesn’t mind taking CBD from a dropper, softly press the dropper between the gums and drop a carefully premeasured amount directly under the tongue.
Of course, it isn’t always this easy, and some pets are pickier than others.
Add CBD To Your Pet’s Favorite Treat
If your pet doesn’t like taking CBD oil from a dropper, there is an easy alternative that is painless for you and enjoyable for your pet, producing positive associations with their daily CBD routine.
To begin, carefully measure an appropriate dose and drop it onto your pet’s favorite treats.
Use as many treats as you need to spread the dosage out, using just enough to permeate each morsel without losing any excess oil. Drop the tincture onto the treats, and wait for thirty seconds to a minute to let the oil sink in before giving them to your animal.
Your pet will be thrilled to indulge in his favorite food, and you can rest assured that you’re making him happy while doing what’s best for him.
Keep a plain treat on-hand to give him immediately after administering the CBD-infused treats; this will mask any unwanted aftertaste.
A picky cat’s or dog’s attitude will shift from skeptical to eager for their daily CBD treat.
Soon, this will become your pet’s favorite part of the day.
Is CBD Oil Safe?
For those new to CBD for animals and considering it for their pets, we know that safety and quality are top concerns. We hold all pet CBD products to the same rigorous high standards that we set for our products intended for human consumption.
The Entourage Effect & Whole-Plant CBD for Pets
Researchers noted that the resulting “entourage effect” may have been responsible for their success and that the remarkable results they produced with full-spectrum CBD “may not translate” to the efficacy of other isolate-based products found on the market.
This is why at The Mass Apothecary we recommend whole-plant CBD products for our customers’ pets. These products are rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and omega. Everything naturally found in a hemp plant and extremely good for your pets.
