CBD Pet Products

A BluPeak Botanics customer gives their pet dog a CBD tincture dose to potentially help with varying symptoms

Perhaps you’ve tried CBD yourself, or maybe you’re new to the most recent craze in cannabis culture. Don’t write off CBD use in Colorado as a trend, though — this compound made from cannabidiol can be helpful for humans and animals alike when it comes to fatigue, restlessness, anxiety, and irritability. Read through our information about CBD pet products to determine how to help your pets best.

CBD Pet Products

Though there have not been any official research studies conducted with domesticated animals, many pet owners have found that CBD products help their dogs and cats calm down, get better sleep, and live with less pain. In short, CBD for pets works in similar ways as it works for humans.

Is It Safe To Use CBD Pet Drops?

According to the American Kennel Club, CBD is safe to use for dogs. You may see benefits in smaller doses with your cats, but it is typically given to dogs either as gummy chews or drops that you put in the pet’s food or treats. Currently, the Canine Health Foundation is conducting a study that involves administering CBD treatments to epileptic dogs. Because CBD has seen much success in treating humans with seizures, researchers think it may be just as effective for dogs.

What Pet Health Problems Show Results With the Use of CBD?

If your pet is anxious, high-strung, or very irritable, you may see quick results with CBD. Every pet is different, so be sure to calculate the dosage by weight to ensure that you are administering enough. The following conditions may respond well to pet CBD products:

  • Anxiety and other mood problems
  • Aggressiveness and irritability due to old age or stress
  • Tremors
  • Epilepsy

What Side Effects Might I See If the Dosage is Too High?

All pets, just like all people, need a specifically-tailored dosage of CBD. For some pets, especially those with extremely sensitive nervous systems, calculating the dose by weight may prove to result in an overdose. Some pets will respond positively after ingesting small amounts. If your pet has taken a too high dose, you may notice increased thirst, sleepiness, and drops in blood pressure that can make your pet dizzy.

Fur-Midable Pet Drops

Our newest line of pet-oriented CBD at our Colorado location comes in a liquid tincture form. Fur-Midable Pet Drops contain 1000 milligrams of CBD in addition to a wide range of nutrients, including antioxidants, coconut oil, fiber, and omega fatty acids to enhance your pet’s health. This tincture is made from the entire cannabis plant, which means that it is a whole-spectrum product that contains trace amounts of all cannabinoids and terpenes for great results. You can use our Pet Drops as a part of your pet’s daily health routine. Start with the lowest dose you think your pet will do well with and work up from there to avoid side effects such as drowsiness.

If you have questions about using CBD with medications to treat a pet’s health condition, or you’re wondering whether these drops would be safe for your pet, it would be best to consult your veterinarian before administering any CBD. It’s easiest to add Fur-Midable Pet Drops to food or treats, but if your pet shows interest, you can use the dropper to administer the dose in the back of your pet’s mouth. Did we mention that they’re bacon-flavored?
