Short for Cannabidiol, is a liquid extract that’s derived from cannabis plants.
While named after a single compound called a cannabinoid, most products contain an arrangement of beneficial compounds. This includes over 100 different cannabinoids that work naturally with you and your pet's Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
According to the World Health Organization, "Hemp is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be a result of drug interactions between hemp and patients' existing medications." If you or your pet are taking prescription medications, but would also like to use hemp, check our listing for drug interactions and/or check with your health care professional.
The hemp oil you give to your dog or cat, is no different than ours. However, you’ll find it in a variety of concentrations to account for the weight difference along with other additives that may be harmful for your pet.
Chances are you’ve already heard a bit about hemp or Cannabidiol. Everyone is talking about this tiny molecule derived from cannabis and hemp plants because of its plethora of health benefits.
The World Health Organization, for example, has concluded that hemp can be beneficial in treating:
Hemp goes into the body and interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
This system is involved in managing all kinds of physiological processes, including everything from memory and fear to inflammation and pain.
Hence, by activating the ECS, hemp can have really broad effects on the body.
Hemp oil works by supplementing your endocannabinoid system. This system, also known as the ECS system, is responsible for regulating our mood, pain levels, inflammation, appetite, immunity, sleep cycle, and more.
Hemp interacts with the CB1 and CB2, cell receptors found in the ECS, to get your body back on track, keep you healthy, and improve your quality of life.
Similar to the human body, all vertebrates have an Endocannabinoid System. This means you can take advantage of the therapeutic benefits for your pet. Hemp can help improve our pet’s health and potentially prevent a wide variety of conditions that might affect them later in life.
It turns out your cat responds to hemp much in the same way humans do because they have an endocannabinoid system.
The only thing that will change when giving your pet hemp is the dose, seeing as their smaller bodies need much smaller doses.
At this moment, we don’t know. The US Food and Drug Administration has not approved hemp for use in pets (or humans) and has not issued dosing recommendations, and any medication or supplement carries the potential risk of reaction, so it’s important to try a small dose first and monitor how your pet reacts to it. Always check with your veterinarian first.
