HolistaPet CBD Oil for Cats
Our CBD cat products are made in Colorado, USA! All of our raw ingredients are natural and organically grown. Furthermore, we only use what the industry refers to as “Broad Spectrum CBD” in our products. This means that our CBD has a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes included – CBD as well as CBG, CBN, CBC.
Broad-spectrum CBD is known to have a stronger effect then isolates (CBD-only products). This is because, with broad-spectrum oil, other cannabinoids work together complementing each other to strengthen the CBD’s effect. We carry various forms of natural, feline-friendly CBD including CBD cat treats, CBD drops, CBD cat capsules,
and CBD catnip spray.
Our CBD comes from hemp farmers in the cannabis-friendly state of Colorado. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and want to be leaders in the industry. This means that we will always strive to have a consistent quality product available to our customers.
What Is CBD and How Does It Work for My Cat?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most widely used compounds found in the hemp plant. Although hemp has many known chemical compounds, CBD is found to have many of the beneficial properties like marijuana but without the psychoactive “high” effect. This is why in the last few years CBD has been gaining a ton of attention from everyone including the government, pro athletes, the veterinarian field, and most importantly the regular consumer.
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, discomfort, swelling, 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.
Is CBD Safe for My Cat?
One thing to be aware of when buying CBD oil for cats is that CBD products are not currently regulated by the FDA. It is important that you research CBD products before you give them to your cat.
There are many different types of CBD products on the market. CBD oil can vary widely in quality. With CBD it pays to look for lab test results. Do not always go for the cheapest option, it may contain harmful additives. Lab results also specify THC amounts. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp.
All our products use hemp-derived CBD that contains 0.3% THC or less. HolistaPet products will not make your cat high. Cannabis-derived products with higher levels of THC, though, might.
CBD is a natural compound of the hemp plant and is generally well-tolerated by cats. Recent studies have revealed some potential side effects of CBD in felines, though they are mild and often disappear once your cat becomes used to CBD. Dry mouth and drowsiness tend to be the most common side effects.
How Much CBD Should I Give My Cat?
Because CBD is not regulated by the FDA or veterinarian bodies, there are no official dosage guidelines.
CBD is a generally safe and non-toxic supplement that you can administer to your cat immediately. In order to get the best results, however, it is recommended that you consult your veterinarian.
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.
Determining a regular or strong dose will depend on your cat’s size. It is necessary to weigh your cat to determine the proper dose. Once you have done so, you can use this handy guide to measure the dosage.
The basic dosing formulas break down as follows:
- For 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 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.
Pay attention to how your cat reacts to the treatment; you can always increase or decrease the dosage depending on the severity of your cat’s condition and their reaction to the treatment. CBD is difficult to overdose on, so if you give your cat a dose that is “too high”, they may simply get tired and sleep it off.
How to give your cat CBD
CBD is most effective if given daily. It should be treated as a regular addition to your cat’s health and wellness regimen. The regular dosage schedule is to give one regular or strong dose in the morning and once at night.
Your cat will experience the greatest benefits if you give them CBD every eight (8) hours. If you are using CBD to ease nervous behavior or agitation, then administer the dose thirty (30) minutes before the triggering event (such as fireworks, separation, thunderstorm, or travel in the car).
You can choose to give your cat either treats or a tincture. The treats are convenient and tend to be useful for training your pet in various capacities.
However, if your cat is suffering from gagging, then they will likely not be able to stomach the treats. If this is the case, then you can administer a tincture. You simply take the dropper out of the bottle and drop the CBD oil under your cat’s tongue (sublingually).
This will bypass having to feed CBD to your cat and will result in a high level of CBD in their bloodstream in a very short period of time (usually about 5 minutes). However, this CBD may metabolize quicker than the treats.
Purchasing a bundle of a tincture plus treats ensures that you will have both CBD products and can use them interchangeably, depending on the needs of your cat on that particular day.
Give your cat the best life you can. Start using CBD today for a happy, joyous, and active pet that can be a constant companion to all the adventures you take together.
CO2 ExtractionThis is an extraction process that uses CO2 to extract different cannabinoids from hemp. CO2 extraction is agreeably the cleanest method of CBD extraction. This is because the CO2 used is the same element (carbon dioxide) we exhale from our lungs. This method uses CO2 in a liquid state and any residual in the end product simply evaporates at room temperature. Amongst the common extraction methods, CO2 extraction is generally considered as the purest and cleanest way to get CBD. This is why at HolistaPet, we choose to use only CBD from CO2 extraction in our products!
Where The Hemp Comes From MattersOne thing to keep in mind when shopping for premium CBD oil for your cat is the origin of where the hemp comes from. CBD hemp oil is extracted from the hemp plant or the marijuana plant. It is legal throughout the USA and much of the world, only if the CBD is extracted from hemp. On the other hand, CBD extraction from marijuana is still a schedule 1 drug according to the DEA. The reason you should pay attention to where the hemp was grown and extracted is that the USDA does not test or regulate import hemp fields or CBD extraction facilities. All hemp grown in the USA must follow strict guidelines set by three agencies. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) work together to set and regulate legal hemp fields in America.
Imported Hemp CBD ProductsImported hemp CBD products from outside the USA could be held to little or no regulations when compared to USA grown hemp and CBD products. Lower regulations usually convert to lower grade hemp and CBD products. How much pesticides, mites, and disease in import hemp could be unknown. The origin of where your CBD oil for cats comes from should clearly state on the label or packaging of the product. If the origin is not on the label, it’s best to assume that it is imported CBD. We use CBD from USA Colorado-grown hemp in all of our products. You should make sure your CBD oil came from a hemp field and extraction facility in the USA. Imported hemp CBD products often use unregulated chemicals during the extraction process which they produce in huge volumes.
What Type Of Oil Do We Use To Infuse CBD?
Once the hemp is grown and the CBD extraction method is complete, the next step to making your cats CBD oil is the infusion process. If you are in search of the most beneficial CBD oil for your cat you should pay attention to what type of oil is in the product.
CBD oil manufacturers dilute pure CBD oil with different oils. These oils are known as carrying agent oils. Premium CBD oil for cats should be diluted with a healthy carrying oil. This is a good way to give your cat the benefits of CBD as well as a dose of healthy oil.
Our CBD oil for cats is a combination of two simple ingredients which are CBD oil (grown and extracted in Colorado) and 100% pure, organic Hemp Seed Oil.
Benefits Of Hemp Seed Oil
- Supports healthy fur, skin, and nails
- Helps provide excellent nutrition to the brain
- Promotes a healthy heart
- Helps balance hormones
- Supports Immune system
We also make CBD Cat Treats, which we infuse CBD along with salmon oil. Salmon oil is rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon oil offers many of the same health benefits as hemp oil offers. The additional salmon flavor offers your cat a healthy CBD treat it will love.
If you wish to get a quality 100% organic CBD product, keep an eye out for the organic seal on the label or packaging of the product. The CBD cat oil should brandish an organic seal if all of the product’s ingredients are organic.
Hormones, artificial chemicals, antibiotics, or genetically modified organisms (GMO) are not practices of organic farming. Organic products should contain no artificial food additives such as artificial flavoring, preservatives, or coloring. Some of these artificial additives may have connections to birth defects and certain forms of cancer.
Besides the negative effects and lower overall standards, non-organic ingredients usually have low nutritional values and lower levels of beneficial antioxidants. Non-organic ingredients generally have higher nitrate levels in comparison to their organic counterparts. High nitrate levels have also been linked to certain types of diseases.
