More and more studies are emerging showing how marijuana can actually help humans, and yes, even cats! We don’t mean marijuana in the way you’d usually think of it, we mean in the form of products such as CBD oil. Let’s explore them.

What Is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is basically one of 60+ compounds found within the cannabis plant. These “cannabinoids” are essentially the molecules that make up the plant’s substance. THC is the more well-known cannabinoid known for getting its users “stoned” or “high”. What makes CBD amazing is that it actually counteracts the effects of THC. Strains of the plant that have higher levels of CBD naturally have lower levels of THC. These strains of cannabis are used medically because they are either non-psychoactive or much less psychoactive compared to strains with high levels of THC.

What Can CBD Do?​

Well, to put it short – It can be used to relieve inflammation, reduce pain, relieve anxiety, ease spasms, prevent seizures, and then some! All these benefits come from CBD without the lethargic feelings or psychedelic reactions of THC.

How Can CBD Benefit My Cat?​

CBD is an amazing compound because it is a more natural medicine that can treat the same things in cats as it does in humans. This means you now have access to a safer alternative to medications that are used to treat many ailments your cat may have.

A few things that CBD infused oils, treats, and supplements can do for your cat are:

  • Prevent And Cure Cancer*

  • Help With Digestion/Relieve Nausea

  • Relief From Anxiety And Phobias

  • Improve Joint Mobility/Reverse Arthritis

  • Reduce Pain And Inflammation

  • Suppress Epilepsy And Seizures

  • Improve Skin And Coat Conditions

  • Aid In General Aging And Wellness

*further studies need to be done as to how effective CBD is over-all in treating cancer

If you are a health conscious pet owner who has a cat that suffers from anything, it’s worth looking into CBD options for him/her. Many pet owners do not feel comfortable administering prescription drugs to their pets and I can’t blame them! Most are like human grade drugs and come with a lot of risks. With CBD, the only known side-effect is becoming too sedated. CBD can promote relaxation to the point of mild sedation which means the dosage is either too high or your cat is simply too sensitive to cannabidiol.

And yes, it is LEGAL in all 50 states so long as the THC level is less than 0.3%!
It is worth checking with your vet for possible options in helping your kitty live a better and more fulfilling life.

I bought some CBD oil for small pets at our local dispensary because our cat Cujoe was just neutered and declawed he seemed to be in a lot of pain and I didn’t feel comfortable giving him the pain meds that the vet gave us so we looked into some CBD oil I gave him some before we removed his bandages and he purred the whole time even though it looked like it was painful it made me cringe just to see the bandages be removed but he laid there and purred the whole time and is currently resting and his bed sound asleep still purring I gave him a little more then it said I should because I felt so bad about his paws bleeding but he seems like he’s on Cloud 9 somewhere and he still purring. 😊😊😊 he’s happy I’m happy

Cats will purr even in pain. Purrs reassure and soothe. It can also promote healing.

Unfortunately, you’ve made a huge mistake having your cat declawed. See here: https://purrfectlove.net/declawed-cat-peeing-outside-litter-box/

My kittie was just diagnosed with Stomatitis and I have deceided to use CBD oil to help reduce the inflamation. Unfortunately she hates the tase of the oil after I attempted to hide it in her canned food. I fear if I use the dropper to her mouth she will hide from me every time I approach her. Any creative suggestions? I already give her a gum medication on her paw that she licks off.

We put a little drop of CBD oil on our finicky cat’s favorite crunchy treat, let it soak in and dry over night, and give it to her the next morning. She loves it and is none the wiser.

Dan that’s a great idea. My cat, Buddy will not eat any kind of treats. That’s why I have to put it on one of his front paws.

First may I ask what is a gum medicine??

I put CBD on my cats paw with no problem. He doesn’t like it. He runs and hides when he knows the time is near. 🙀

But we finally get it done.

Been on CBD with added coconut oil thanks to Moderator ❣️, for a year now.

Still coughing some but not projectile, like he was‼️

I go to a holistic vet and she gave me a medication called 1TDC for periodontal and joint health.

My soon to be 15 yr old cat was just diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his inner ear. Vet said prognosis is terminal. He is currently on a steriroid and pain med. He is not eating well and is disoriented. I’m looking for something to give him comfort. Do you think CBD oil would help? Thanks Melody

My 12 year old cat has been losing weight over the past year. Within 11 months since her last check up, she lost 3 lbs. She went from 14-11 lbs. We did extensive bloodwork, all came back perfect. So we did full body x-ray, and she has spots on her lung, lung cancer. Aside from the weight loss, she has rapid breathing, but not labored. When asleep, her respiration is 26. She gets around fine, has no issues and loves to eat. Was wondering if CBD oil could help her? I don’t understand how it would help with a lung cancer, but wanted to ask. Was told if she stops wanting to eat or begins having trouble breathing, we’d do prednisone shots. That is the dreaded plan. So am wondering about the oil, if it can be of help to her, and how. Thank you. ☺

Please try the CBD. It has cleared my cats lungs of pneumonia! He was very sick. High fever.

I posted about Buddy. Please read my post.

I get the pure CBD. Meaning it has no added oil.
The dose for cats was not strong enough for Buddy.
Also I put it on his paw. He hates it, but he does lick it off. And if your older cat want lick it off, try mixing it with a small amount of melted coconut oil or olive oil.

My heartfelt blessings go out to you and your kittie.

I do give him two doses a day. You will know if he starts feeling better.

I did hope my vet knew best. ;(

He told me Buddy would not recover. He’s doing great now. As long as I don’t forget or run out of CBD!

I see I’m still a guest. Must set account up. 😘

My boy Osiris is 19.5 years old. He has neurological issues. He takes medication from the vet, but it does not relieve the periodic nerve zings he seems to be experiencing. It makes it hard for him to rest. I have a bottle of whole hemp extract CBD oil, 300mg. How much should I give him? The bottle has no dosage recommendations. Can you advise? He weights approximately 12 pounds. Thank you in advance for your prompt reply.

Start with a few drops and increase a drop until you see improvement.

Is there any information about the effect of CBD on fleas on cats? Just can’t find a natural way to help.
