Finding pure CBD oil for your pet may be a hassle. Especially if you’re new to CBD and aren’t sure if you want to explore this option.

Look no further! Here you’ll learn these essentials:

  • What exactly is CBD for your pet
  • Reasons to consider CBD for your pet
  • CBD’s legal status
  • Possible side-effects
  • Additional options beyond CBD oil

What is CBD oil for pets?

Pet CBD is any product designed for your furry family members. Like humans, dogs, cats, horses, and all other mammals have an endocannabinoid system. This intricate part of our biology promotes homeostasis (balance), which potentially affect mood, appetite, and mental state.

Why Pure CBD for Pets?

While pet-focused CBD studies are ongoing, many consumers have found astounding success. Still, as always, it’s crucial to speak with a licensed veterinarian before committing to a purchase.

Is CBD legal (for pets)?

Hemp has been legalized by the federal government. However, the legal status of CBD is still widely regulated, so rely on your state’s laws before making a purchase. When it comes to CBD for your pets, that too is being debated.

Considering actual pet-focused studies are still relatively new, many veterinarians remain hesitant about encouraging usage. Fortunately, many vets in California have taken a stand, so there is still hope! Invest time in finding a vet who’s willing to explore this option.

Can CBD Oil Cause Side-Effects In Dogs?

CBD oil may cause diarrhea in dogs if they’re given copious amounts. Of course, “copious” can vary depending on the size of your dog, as well as possible overdosing. Other possible side effects may arise if your pet is already prescribed medication.

So again, work with your veterinarian to help prevent possible adverse drug interactions.

Where Can I Find Pure CBD Pet Treats?

Maybe you don’t want to be bothered with the mess of CBD oil. Or you’ve tried it, and your precious pet refuses to touch their food afterward. If this is the case, then the next best option could be CBD-infused treats!

Pure CBD Vapors offers a variety of soft chews for your dog. We also provide capsules for both dogs and cats.
