CBD Oil for Cats

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 Oil?

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 Oil 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 Oil 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 (further studies needed)

  • 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

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.

Amazon is out of Pet Club Brothers hemp. Do you have another brand that works for inflammation?

My cat has a gum disease that has resulted in the loss of almost all her teeth, either surgically or they fall out. We took her to the vet and asked about cannabis, but they don’t carry it. This morning I found a molar on the kitchen floor. My sweet kitty has only three teeth left. can you please tell me what you buy for your cat and has it helped her gum disease?

Mary: I don’t know if this will be posted to youtube. I just lost my beloved girl to cancer and here is what I learned. a) I purchased some of the CBDistillery oil from a local store. It can be purchased online. They make one specifically for pets (5 drops, 2 times per day [or as needed, I would think]). It will help with calming. http://cbdistillery.net/cbd-shop/index.html (they don’t give out info on this stuff). This is not the cancer curing CBD. Cannapet, in the US, carries the cancer curing oil. Tell me if you live in Canada. I have two other names. b) Petwellbeing makes a tincture based on the Essiac formula and Hoxsey formulas. I started to try it. There is also another ES-Clear. c) Ty Bollinger just had a series of programs on Pet Cancer and various treatments. I’m trying to find Episode 6 for you to hear… Read more »

My little one has been through so much. I took her to the vet sneezing blood. They pulled out all her teeth and not only was she still sneezing blood, but then her mouth hurt so much she refused to eat. I force fed for 15 days. I found a tutorial on line on how to swaddle a cat, it made force feeding so much easier for one person. The vet gave Mirtazapine to stimulate her appetite and got her through that crises, but she is clearly suffering a nasal tumor or some such so I started her on CBD oil today, 3 drops in her food and she ate it no problem. I am also using frankinsense oil diluted with a carrier oil on drop to 30 applied to spine and ear tips, I need a miracle here, I doubt she can be saved, but making her comfortable and… Read more »

Jo Howard: heartbreaking! Would Colloidal Silver (a natural antibiotic) help in any way? Putting a drop in her nose, at least in her water or food? I just read there are 3 types of colloidal silver: clear, amber and dark brown. It is the dark brown you want for internal use, clear for topical, don’t use amber, according to this article (https://www.playfulkitty.net/2015/03/12/is-colloidal-silver-safe-for-cats/). I also read that CS works well with Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) (I don’t know much about this though). This is an interesting article and suggests how much to give (https://pathwithpaws.com/blog/2011/12/29/a-mini-protocol-for-any-cancer/).

Mary: here is the trailer for Episode 6 of Ty Bollinger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGQ19PcM-z4
It may give you some names to look up. I can’t find the full episode; I believe it is only available if purchased or when it is offered for free. Sign up, just in case. Dr. Mercola is good.

Would this help my cat with separation anxiety? Her story’s long so I will cut it short. She was taken from her stray mom 5 weeks old then came back a yr later.First 3 months I took her in she hid under the bed. Now my bedroom is her home. She clings to me when I hold her. Hides but wants to be picked up. Will not stand up to my cats. It’s been a yr.

Hi Laura:

There is also a product called ‘Feliway’ which is in either a spray or a diffuser. It consists of a combination of scents (herbs?) that help calm cats. It will help to calm you kitty.

I have used the diffuser to help with the overall area my cat was in, as well as spraying the eg. carry case she was going in to drive to the vet. The spray definitely calms them in an isolated area, but the diffuser works on the whole house.

Vets sell it and now pet stores are carrying it. It would get the diffuser so the whole room/house is affected.

I think this may help you a great deal. https://www.feliway.com/ca_en/

Are there different types of pet CBD for different ailments? Or, does one type work for every problem? Where does one find CBD in Canada? I’m looking for lung cancer and pain/inflammation for my cat.
