How Does MediPets CBD Pet Treats for Cats and Dogs Work?
Mammals have endocannabinoid systems. CBD is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant; it binds with the endocannabinoid receptors to ensure the body stays in homeostasis (balance). Even though CBD is derived from plants, meaning it is a phytocannabinoid rather than a mammal-derived cannabinoid, the CBD has an amazing ability to bind with these receptors and enact the same effects on the body. Even if CBD doesn’t bind to receptors, it has other functions, like acting as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.
Why Hemp-Derived CBD Pet Treats?
The CBD in all MediPets treats is derived from high-quality industrial hemp oil. We use hemp because the plant is naturally high in CBD but only has trace amounts of THC, the hallucinogenic compound for which cannabis is known The manufacturing process we use leaves our final product 100 percent THC-free.
All of our products start with hemp. It is much easier and faster to grow than marijuana, it uses less water and resists pests. Growers can breed industrial hemp to produce even higher yields of CBD, leading to better oil products like MediPets.
Misconceptions About Pet CBD
CBD oils formulated for humans and pets are indeed different. You should never try human CBD oil on a pet. CBD is not a psychoactive compound like THC is. In fact, CBD is non-psychoactive, so your pet can take it with no adverse side effects. CBD gives all the benefits without the side effects. Your dog will not get “high”.
CBD derived from hemp is safe. Your dog cannot overdose on MediPets CBD Pet Treats for Cats and Dogs. Use caution and talk to your vet if you are using CBD along with prescription medications for your dog. CBD can reduce the activity of liver enzymes which help your pet’s body metabolize these medications.
CBD derived from hemp is legal in all 50 states for both human and animal products, so you don’t have to worry about any legal issues.
Not all CBD oils are the same; the market is saturated with products, but there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a product. First, you want a CBD oil derived from hemp. MediPets is. Second, you want the hemp to be organic because that means it will be free of pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Third, you want a pure, high-quality oil that contains the amount of CBD indicated by the label. Medipets meets all of these criteria. We provide lab analysis of all of our products to ensure the amount of CBD and to also ensure that our products are THC-free.
Dosing MediPets CBD Pet Treats for Cats and Dogs
While many vets have more information on CBD use in dogs, CBD can also be effectively used in cats as well. With both dogs and cats, dosing is important. Animals definitely metabolize substances differently than humans, so understanding the dose is crucial. It may take a few hours for your pet to metabolize the CBD to where you notice the effect. MediPets products are specially and correctly formulated just for your pet. Our products are designed with the proper dosage in mind, for example, our Purrs & Puffs and our Cat Cafe´ Tartar Control products.
Dosing will, of course, depend on the size and weight of the pet. With CBD, start small and see how your pet does, then work your way up to a higher dose if needed. We have a whole line of MediPets treats for you to try.
