CBD is a cannabinoid that only grows in hemp. It can be extracted and added to pet products. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system in cats to produce beneficial effects. Although CBD comes from hemp it is 100% non-psychoactive. It may offer help with a cat’s mood, appetite, sleep, behavior, skin, hair, joint support, comfort level, and more.
CBD works by activating your cat’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is an internal system involved in regulating many important body functions like mood, appetite, pain-sensation, inflammatory response, and memory to name a few. Clinical research on the effectiveness of CBD is currently underway by scientists, many of which the government is sponsoring.
Using products that come from a trusted company will ensure that your supplements have clearly-marked and controlled dosage amounts. This will allow you to control how much you give your cat on a daily basis. You can give either a regular dose or a strong dose depending on the severity level.
It is necessary to weigh your cat to determine the proper dose. Once you have done so, you can use these guidelines for measuring the dosage.
For moderate severity use a regular dose, give one-quarter (0.25) milligrams for every 1-pound of body weight. If your cat weighs twenty 20-pounds, then a regular dose would be 5-milligrams.
For intense severity use a strong dose, give one-half (0.5) milligrams for every 1-pound of body weight. If your cat weighs twenty 20-pounds, then a strong dose would be 10-milligrams.
