If you have heard a lot about how Cannabidiol can positively affect animals, you are probably eager to try it out immediately. Who could blame you? Being able to help your feline overcome certain struggles, or simply wanting to make sure that it is healthy and happy, is of crucial importance for every cat owner. The fact that CBD comes with no side effects makes it even more appealing.
Regardless of all the justifiable appeal, you should consider a few more things before putting the product in your cart and ordering it. Cats are specific creatures, so you need to make sure you know the specifics on the type, the dosage, as well as the overall quality of a certain CBD product. I’m sure you want the best for your kitty, which is why you should hold off your purchase a little while longer and read this.
Let me make things clear. I’m not here to preach you on whether giving CBD to your cat is a good idea. Those preaches no longer stand a chance in 2020, since everybody acquainted with the effects on Cannabidiol, and everybody agrees that it is definitely a good idea. I have something else in mind for today. Seeing owners struggling with picking the right product has made me want to help.
That’s why, today I will be talking about a few little things you need to consider when buying your first, or your second, or whichever, CBD product for your feline. They do deserve to get the best out of it, which is virtually impossible if you start your shopping completely uninformed and unprepared. Let me tell you about the things you need to consider so as to get the right thing for your kitty.
Choose Hemp Over Marijuana
Although hemp and marijuana basically come from the same family, it is important to know the difference between these two. When it comes to your pets, playing it safe is important, and there’s nothing safer than choosing a product that is made of hemp instead of marijuana. Unlike marijuana, hemp contains less than 0.03% of THC, which means that it cannot get either you, or your cat high.

It would be absurd of you to think that getting you kitty high might not be that dangerous and that you shouldn’t, therefore, worry too much about choosing a CBD product made from hemp. For the sake of making everything clear, though, I still need to emphasize this. THC can be rather harmful for any animal, so it’s best if you play it safe and buy a product made from hemp.
I suppose there is really no need for me to explain why organic is the way to go when you are choosing a CBD product for your cat. It is safer and healthier, and no questions should be posed about whether it is really necessary. Provided that you want the best for your feline, you will definitely look for an organic substance.
You can check for this by taking a look at the label, or the website of a specific supplier. If there is no mention of the word “organic” on the label, then it’s probably because the products are not organic. To be sure, you can always get in touch with the manufacturer and inquire about this. It is among the most important things you want to know about CBD, together with the ones found here.
Get A Good Chart
Finding a dosage chart is a must when it comes to CBD and your felines. You cannot give them as much CBD as you think might be necessary. That would not only be foolish, but also reckless and irresponsible. The fact that there are no side effects and that your pet cannot overdose on CBD doesn’t make it okay for you to administer the wrong dosage. Too much of anything is not a good idea, while too little will have no effect at all.
Due to this, before buying CBD, you need to find a chart to show you how to administer it properly. When you choose the manufacturer you want to buy from, check their website to see if they offer a chart. It would be perfect if they do, since that leaves no room for any guesswork whatsoever. You’ll have all the necessary data right there in front of you.
Of course, it is always a good idea to speak to your vet before giving CBD to your cat. They will probably be able to give you a few useful guidelines, and not only regarding the dosage. In any case, they are the experts, so they ought to know a bit more about this than you.
