HolistaPet CBD Oil for Cats
Our customers and their pets are the best, so you deserve the best! That’s why all our CBD cat products are made from hemp sourced in Colorado and Oregon (the top states for hemp cultivation). 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 — but no THC!
Broad spectrum CBD is known to have a stronger effect then isolates (CBD-only products). This is because, with broad spectrum oil, other cannabinoids and compounds work together complementing each other to strengthen the CBD’s effect.
What Types of CBD Products Are There for Cats?
We know your pet’s health means the world to you, and they deserve the same high-quality ingredients you do. Fortunately, humans aren’t the only ones who have great CBD products to choose from. Our feline friends also have many options when it comes to satisfying their CBD demands.
We carry various forms of natural, feline-friendly CBD including:
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 has many of the same beneficial properties as marijuana but without the intoxicating “high” effect. This is why in the last few years CBD has been gaining a ton of attention from everyone including the government, professional athletes, the veterinarian field, 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 such as:
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.
Research on CBD’s benefits is ongoing, and the results so far have been promising.
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.
Dosing Your Cat With CBD Oil
CBD oil for cats is available in a variety of strengths. How much CBD oil you can give your cat depends on how much CBD they can tolerate.
The following is a list of the most common dosages of broad spectrum oil and the approximate amount of CBD your cat will receive per drop:
- 150 MG CBD (Bottle: 15ml / 0.5 oz): Pets under 20 lbs – 1 drop = 0.33 mg CBD, approx. 450 drops/bottle
- 300 MG CBD (Bottle: 15ml / 0.5 oz): Pets 20-60 lbs – 1 drop = 0.66 mg CBD, approx. 450 drops/bottle
- 600 MG CBD (Bottle: 30ml / 1 oz ): Pets 60-100 lbs – 1 drop = 0.66 mg CBD, approx. 900 drops/bottle
- 1200 MG CBD (Bottle: 30ml / 1 oz ): Pets over 100 lbs – 1 drop = 1.33 mg CBD, approx. 900 drops/bottle
- 3000 MG CBD (Bottle: 60ml / 2 oz): Pets over 100 lbs with severe issues – 1 drop = 1.66 mg CBD, approx. 1800 drops/bottle
The average weight of a cat is 8-10 lbs. For most cat owners, especially those new to CBD, it’s recommended to use a 150mg CBD oil tincture since it provides a small amount of CBD per drop. This will prevent you from accidentally giving your cat more CBD than they can handle.
However, for a cat owner aware of their feline pal’s CBD tolerance and dosing routine, you might want to consider using a larger-sized bottle for added convenience. Although larger bottles are more concentrated for larger pets (20-100 lbs), they have the added benefit of more CBD per drop.
Not only will using a larger-sized bottle allow you to use fewer drops when dosing your cat’s CBD, but you will also save yourself money in the long run since you’ll get more bang for your buck, or in this case, more CBD per drop!
Is Dosing the Same for All CBD Products for Cats?
Well, yes and no. While the amount of CBD your cat will benefit from remains the same across all products, you should also consider the other ingredients.
For example, far less CBD will get into your feline friend’s bloodstream when it’s in the form of catnip spray compared to capsules. Most cats only give catnip spray a couple of licks until they’re satisfied because the nepetalactone (catnip) is so prevalent. In this case, you don’t have to be as concerned with dosing.
Capsules, on the other hand, deliver the entirety of their CBD dose to your kitty. When giving your cat CBD capsules or treats, you want to ensure you’ve got the correct dosage.
But no matter the product, calculating how much CBD your cat can handle will help you determine how much CBD you can give them. Use these simple formulas to calculate your cat its ideal CBD dose:
- Regular Dose of CBD = (0.25 milligrams) x (Your cat’s body weight in pounds)
Example: If your cat is 20 pounds, multiply their weight by 0.25 milligrams to get 5 milligrams of CBD (0.25 mg x 20 lbs = 5 mg CBD).
- Strong Dose of CBD = (0.50 milligrams) x (Your cat’s body weight in pounds)
Example: If your cat is 20 pounds, multiply his weight by 0.50 milligrams to get 10 milligrams of CBD (0.50 mg x 20 lbs = 10 mg CBD).
When giving your cat CBD, always start them off with a regular dose. If you notice your cat responding well to CBD or feel their regular dose isn’t enough, gradually increase to their strong dose.
What Makes a High-Quality CBD Product?
Finding quality CBD products for your cat shouldn’t be hard. Thanks to companies like ours, we’ve prioritized safety, quality, and your cat’s health over anything else.
At HolistaPet, we value quality and safety above all else. That’s why you can expect the following from all our CBD products:
- Broad spectrum CBD (contains CBD, other cannabinoids, and natural terpenes)
- Contains no THC
- Uses 100% all-natural ingredients
- No harmful additives or preservatives
- Third-party lab tested with a Certificate of Analysis (COA)
- Made from USA grown hemp
Each product is unique in how it can provide CBD to boost your cat’s collective wellness. Here are the different types of CBD products for cat owners to choose from.
CBD Oil for Cats
An oil (also known as tincture) is one of the most versatile CBD products for cats. Tinctures come in glass bottles and have a dropper conveniently incorporated into the cap for easy dosing.
Full spectrum oils contain trace amounts of THC. To avoid any THC toxicity for your cat, always use broad spectrum CBD oils. This type of oil is free of THC and contains CBD, other cannabinoids, and terpenes for a subtle flavor.
The most common carrier oil used in high-quality hemp-derived CBD oil is hemp seed oil. This nutritious superfood aids the absorption of CBD for your cat.
How to give your cat CBD
Cat owners can dose oil in several ways for cats. Each method has varying effectiveness and duration of effects.
The three ways of dosing CBD oil for your cat are:
- Direct Method: Added directly into your cat’s mouth. When CBD oil is ingested, it will take effect within 30-60 minutes, and the effects will last about 4-6 hours.
- Sublingual Method: Placed directly underneath your cat’s tongue. This method utilizes the glands underneath your cat’s tongue for immediate absorption into the bloodstream.
- Blended Method: Mixed into your cat’s food or drink. Like the direct method, this approach involves ingesting CBD oil. The onset of effects is within 30-60 minutes and lasts about 4-6 hours.
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).
Which Type of Product Should I Give My Cat?
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.

Got questions? Well we’ve got answers! We’ve been pros in the pet CBD community for a long time now, but what good’s all that knowledge and experience without someone to share it with? Below you’ll find expert advice for commonly asked questions.
Will CBD Get My Cat High?
Rest assured, cat owners, CBD will not get your cat high! CBD products designated as broad spectrum contain all the compounds derived from hemp except THC. All of our products on HolistaPet are broad spectrum to ensure your cat receives the optimal benefits of CBD without an overwhelming buzz.
How Can I Get My Cat To Take CBD?
Directly feeding your cat is the simplest way to give them CBD. Several products come pre-dosed to make the process that much easier.
The most common ways to get your cat to take hemp CBD are:
- Oil tinctures: The versatility of CBD oil allows you to dose it in several ways. You can place some drops directly into your cat’s mouth, put some underneath their tongue, or add a few drops to their food or drink.
- Treats: Soft chews and baked treats often come packed with flavors that cats will appreciate.
- Capsules: You can hide the capsule in your cat’s favorite treat or crack it open and sprinkle the contents onto their food or into their drink.
What Do You Do if Your Cat Is a Picky Eater?
If your cat is a picky eater and finds the taste of CBD unappetizing, then you can use a CBD-infused catnip spray to give your cat the relief they need. Simply spray the catnip on their favorite toy, scratching post, or wherever your cat typically hangs out to provide them with some relief.
Make Giving Your Cat CBD Into a Daily Routine
The key to success for giving your cat CBD is to make it into a daily routine. By incorporating CBD products into your cat’s daily health and wellness routine, your cat will become accustomed to taking them, and in turn, increase the effectiveness of CBD. Give one dose in the morning and one dose at night. Make sure to separate both doses by at least 8 hours.
Can I Add CBD Oil to Cat Food?
Yes, you can add CBD oil (or hemp oil) to your cat’s food. In fact, adding CBD oil to cat food is one of the most effective ways to dose CBD for your cat. Just place a few drops on your cat’s food or into their drinking bowl, and voila, you’ve given them CBD!
Will CBD Make My Cat Sleepy?
CBD will not make your cat sleepy when appropriately dosed. However, if you accidentally give your cat more CBD than it can handle, your cat may become tired and sleepy.
Is Hemp Toxic for Cats?
Hemp can be mildly toxic to cats if ingested, but the toxicity isn’t from the hemp plant itself. The issue lies in THC, which is only present in trace amounts in hemp plants. Fortunately, HolistaPet offers broad spectrum products. “Broad spectrum” means the product has no THC at all. When buying CBD oil or other products for your feline friend, opt for broad spectrum.
If your cat ingests a large amount of hemp-derived CBD products that contain THC, such as full spectrum CBD products, then mild THC toxicity is possible. Pet owners should only buy broad spectrum (THC-free) CBD for cats to prevent this rare instance from occurring.
