FAQs on CBD for Pets
Our Pets. They’re our best friends and one of the family…
They fill our lives with happiness, love, and loyalty so it’s vital that they stay happy, healthy, and live a long life.
We discuss in depth the wonders of CBD for humans and how important it is for your health and wellness to add cannabinoids to your daily routine. But, we never really talk in detail about how this supplement can benefit your pets too.
Humans naturally produce endocannabinoids-a compound similar to CBD. People are shocked to find out it’s already in our body, and our bodies already love it. Cannabinoids aren’t just found in the cannabis plant, they’re in us too AND our pets.
Research has shown that the endocannabinoid system is not just in humans, animals such as cats and dogs also have one.
Our Endocannabinoid System helps our immune systems, protect our brains, help us manage stress and even keep our bodies in balance so its vital we keep this system ticking over. Most of us do not realise that our bodies are producing cannabinoids all of the time.
CBD for pets should be derived from hemp and not marijuana.
By giving your pets CBD you are supporting their general wellness and health. Just like we can, animals can run into what is known as cannabinoid deficiency. A Neurologist from America came across a term known as ‘endocannabinoid deficiency’ believing that this was the reason for so many people coming down with difficult to explain illnesses.
Dr Ethan Russo said: “If you don’t have enough endocannabinoids you have pain where there shouldn’t be pain. You would be sick, meaning nauseated. You would have a lowered seizure threshold. And just a whole litany of other problems.” This is where CBD comes into play.
Wondering where to start?
Your pet’s safety is our number one priority. Buying a high-quality product is vital.
Don’t worry, the way we extract CBD allows us to pull all of the natural and beneficial nutrients out of the cannabis plant without getting anything nasty in there as well. Not only are your pets NOT getting high, but you are getting a product from us that’s natural and safe.
Our products ALL contain less 0.0% THC so it would be impossible for your animal to get high. Just pure benefits!
Our products are organic meaning there is no nastiness in there that could harm them either. If you are unsure just ask us for lab results. We pride ourselves on 3rd party testing.
With Karma Pharma, you can help your furry friend live a better lifestyle.
The key with dosage is to start small and work your way up till a dose that you feel suits your pet.
CBD is perfectly safe for animals and we have a lot of customers who specifically buy for their pets. The truth is the same supplements you take can also be given to your pets. We would just recommend adding the drops of hemp oil to your pet’s food. A product we would recommend is our CBD Pet Defence Spray.
Simply spray over the animals meal once or twice and day and monitor how your pet reacts. Watch as they have a new lease of life and play as if they were puppies or kittens again!
No, CBD is the main active ingredient, and CBD does not cause a high and is non-psychoactive.
Basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1-5 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. To control pain, give every 8 hours or as needed.
CBD products are absolutely safe for your dog as they are non-toxic and offers a relaxing stimulant and pain-relief effects. Cannabinoids come from the hemp oil (or hemp seed oil) and leave out most if not all of the THC making it a safe supplement for your pet.
The law prohibits making medical promises about CBD. There are many scientific studies showing that CBD has great therapeutic potential.
No, the CBD won’t make the animal addicted. CBD is a purely herbal component and has no artificial active ingredients that could contribute to addiction.
So far no complications are known. What is known is that when larger amounts of CBD are administered or over a longer period of time, drug metabolisation may occur. This means that the effect of the medication can subside. That’s why we always recommend contacting the vet first if you need to give your pet medication.
