What You Should Know About CBD Oil and CBD for Pets in 2020
Humans aren’t the only species that benefit from the potentially life-changing properties of CBD Oil, pets do, too. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system that helps maintain homeostasis in their bodies.
While scientists study the effects of Cannabidiol on animals, anecdotal evidence points to great success in many cases. But, there are things you have to pay attention to including dose, purity, and the amount of THC in the products you’re using.
Your animals communicate with you only in ways you will mutually understand
Since they don’t have words, it can be difficult to determine how the supplements you give them affect them. Given in the correct serving, CBD has no known side-effects.
What Does Pet CBD Oil Do and How Can it Benefit My Pet?
Pet CBD oil works with your pet’s system to bring balance to their body. Just like humans, pets have an endocannabinoid receptor system that naturally regulates, mood, appetite, and memory. When this system is out of balance, health issues occur.
CBD for pets can help bring about homeostasis
In the short term and in a supplemental application, Cannabidiol can return you back to your (all things considered) best condition aiding your system towards balance its desired best possible balance. It works with the body it’s administered to, meaning, while the general areas it helps span across the board, individual experiences vary.
The benefits your pet can receive from CBD are multi-faceted. CBD has been shown to help your pet with appetite, and significant life changes. The list of benefits keeps growing.
A selection of ways CBD can potentially help your pet, intellectually and/or emotionally:
- Excessive barking
- Behavioral issues: chewing, aggression, ill-timed bathroom breaks in wrong locations
CBD for pets Q & A –
What is the Difference Between Pet CBD Oil and Human CBD Oil?
As long as you’re working with a reputable company, when it comes to what’s in the bottle, the only difference between CBD oil for humans and CBD oil for pets is flavorings and strength. Pet CBD oil is formulated to appeal to their tastes.
Smaller Endocannabinoid Systems
When it comes to our respective endocannabinoid systems, theirs’ are much more compact than ours are. A little bit goes a long way. CBD for pets is a different thought process.
Many of our sweet companions are so much smaller than we are, so it’s vital to pay attention to the amount of CBD you’re giving them.
***Before we talk about all the products CBD for pets products offered by Steve’s Goods, know that Cannabidiol (CBD) does not mean “medicine” and we do not recommend otherwise
Steve’s Goods does not market CBD products as medicine for your Endocannabinoid System. Steve’s Goods does not participate in medical studies and does not recommend the products below, or our other hemp products, as suitable alternatives to medical prescriptions. Talk to your doctor for further info and before adding hemp products to any medical prescription or supplementation routine.
How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Pet?
The way to determine your pet’s optimal daily serving is to start small and incrementally increase the Serving. Once your pet is showing improvement, level off, and maintain that amount for as long as you see results. You may have to increase it again as their body adjusts to the effects.
But truthfully, you’ll find contrasting recommendations on different websites because the answer is nebulous. (See, we don’t hold back!)
All you need to know is to start small and increase the serving every week until your pet shows signs of relief.
The chart below gives general guidelines you can follow when determining the correct serving of CBD for pets.
|Weight||Amount of CBD||Consistency|
|1 – 20 lbs.||.025 – 2 mg.||1 – 2 times daily|
|21 – 50 lbs.||2 – 3 mg.||1 – 2 times daily|
|51 – 75 lbs.||3 – 4 mg.||1 – 2 times daily|
|Over 75 lbs.||4 mg. and up||1 – 4 times daily|
Not all vets are comfortable with CBD because the FDA hasn’t approved it for pets quite yet. Nevertheless, more and more vets are coming around as success stories mount. If your vet doesn’t want to talk with you about CBD, and you still want to provide your animal with it, do some research and talk with other experts.
How Many Drops of CBD Pet Oil is in a Serving?
Again, there’s no one size fits all answer. You’ll need to know how much CBD your pet should receive, and the amount of CBD in each drop to determine how many drops to give your pet.
Here’s how to determine how much CBD is in each drop.
Divide the strength of the CBD by the size of the bottle. The answer gives you the amount of CBD per dropper.
A standard sized dropper filled ¾ equals 1 ml, each drop, .05 ml. adding up to 20 drops per ml.
Divide the amount of CBD in the dropper by 20. The answer gives you the amount of CBD in each drop.
Steve’s Goods CBD Oil for Pets 150 mg.
150 mg. / 30 ml. = 5 mg. per dropper
5mg. / 20 = .025 mg. per drop
Steve’s Goods CBD Oil for Pets 300 mg.
300 mg. / 30 ml. = 10 mg. per dropper
10 mg. / 20 = .5 mg. per drop
In terms of serving size:
4 drops of 150 mg. = 1 mg. of CBD
4 drops of 300 mg. = 2 mg. of CBD
How long does it take for CBD oil to work for pets?
CBD takes between minutes and weeks to work.
Probably not the answer you were looking for. But we want to be straight with you.
Animals respond individually. Reasons for supplementing CBD differ
The delivery system also makes a difference. Placing the oil directly in your animal’s mouth, known as being administered sublingually, gets the quickest result because it goes directly into the bloodstream. Mixing it in with food takes about 15 – 30 minutes longer because it’s absorbed through the stomach.
Science has some catching up to do
As you’re gathering, this isn’t an exact science. But, while CBD hasn’t been studied in pets as much as in humans, its efficacy and benefits are real.
Now that hemp has been legalized again, more information and scientific studies are afoot. In the meantime rest assured that when you give your pet CBD for any reason, you’re helping their body come back into balance.
How Do You Give Your Pet CBD Oil?
There are several ways to administer CBD to your pet. Depending on their temperament you can use a dropper to slip the oil directly in their mouth or squirt it on their food or treats.
What Consistency Should Pet CBD Oil Be?
CBD is a viscous oil, thicker than olive oil, and thinner than motor oil.
Can I Give My Pet CBD Oil to Help Calm Him Down?
