If there’s one thing that all pet owners can agree on, it’s that we want nothing but the very best for our furry friends. We go to great lengths to provide them with adequate veterinary care, the best food that we can find and lots of play, love and attention.
Maybe you’ve heard that a lot of people are finding ways to incorporate CBD into their pet’s daily regimen. Thanks to lots of studies, some veterinarians are starting to embrace the idea of feeding hemp to cats, dogs and other furry creatures that make up a part of our family. And, as a result, the hemp industry has worked very hard to provide a wide variety of pet-friendly CBD products that can give our companions the same compounds that we take daily for wellness-related purposes.
At Pure CBD Vapors, we know that you go to great lengths to seek out the very best products to give to your pet. That’s why we’ve done a lot of the hard work for you. We’ve curated a fabulous selection of pet hemp products from the top companies in the industry right now.
Today, we’ll be taking a closer look into the selection of pet CBD products that we have to offer. This way, you’ll be able to learn more about the different ways in which you can give hemp to your pet. From there, you can decide which option is best suited for them based on their preferences, needs, body and more.
CBD and Pets: How Does it Work?
Maybe you’re wondering how it’s possible that our furry friends can also take CBD. Well, what we know is that all mammals have an endocannabinoid system, not just humans. This bodily system is unique in that it’s specifically designed to process cannabinoids in a way that can lead to balance. We know that our bodies contain cannabinoid receptors within every important bodily system, and this includes the brain, the skin, the body's natural defenses, the respiratory system and more. These cannabinoid receptors receive cannabinoids from the hemp plant and send them off to where they need to go.
One thing that’s important to note is that just because cats and dogs can take CBD doesn’t mean that you should give them the same hemp products that you yourself take daily. For one thing, pets’ bodies are significantly smaller than our own, and so the idea milligram strength for them depends greatly on their body weight. Another thing is that some CBD products that we consume may contain ingredients that are perfectly safe for us, but very harmful for pets. One example is tea tree oil, which is found in many hemp topicals. While tea tree is great for our bodies, it can be toxic to pets.
Because every mammal can process cannabinoids in the same manner via the endocannabinoid system, it makes perfect sense that our pets can take CBD daily, just like us. If you want to get started yourself, read on, as we will be talking about the products that we offer at Pure CBD Vapors.
Hemp-Based Pet Products Available at Pure CBD Vapors
Time to learn about the main categories of CBD pet products that we have in our catalog.
Tinctures, as most of us know, are oral products that are administered sublingually, meaning that the compounds in hemp absorb quickly through the fleshy area beneath the tongue. CBD tinctures for pets contain hemp extract and a carrier oil that is safe for their bodies. The milligram strengths are lower because our pets don’t need the amount of CBD that we do.
We offer standard hemp tinctures, and we also offer ones that are flavored with things that cats and dogs love. It’s important to point out that CBD tinctures can be administered in more ways than one, because they consist of just a few ingredients that can be applied in a number of ways. If sublingual application isn’t working for whatever reason, you can try mixing a tincture with their food, as this allows them to ingest the compounds. Or, you can even use it for topical applications.
This is perhaps the easiest way to administer CBD to your pet, because they’re flavored with everything that cats and dogs love. CBD treats essentially allow you to sneak a standard dose of hemp into your pet’s body without them noticing that something is different. At Pure CBD Vapors, we offer many different great-tasting treats from a variety of top-notch pet hemp companies. We offer treats for both cats and dogs, and we know from our customers that our furry friends can’t get enough of them.
When you give your pet a CBD treat, they’re receiving the compounds in hemp via ingestion. This process can take up to 90 minutes or so to take effect, but it can also last for hours. And, it’s also important to point out that when CBD is ingested, its effects tend to be more subtle, despite being long-lasting.
CBD capsules absorb into the body in the same manner as treats, because they are ingested. But, they are in capsule form, so rather than being chewed up, they are swallowed. There are two ways to give your pet a CBD capsule as part of their daily routine. One way is to grind it up and mix it into their food. Another way is to give it to them like a pill, and many pet owners do this by inserting the capsule directly into the mouth of the pet and using their finger to guide it down the throat. When giving your pet a capsule in this manner, it’s best to speak to your vet first.
CBD topicals are hemp-infused products that absorb through the skin rather than absorbing via internal methods. They’re great for targeting specific areas on the body. Many pet owners give their pets topical CBD goods for the skin or for certain muscles.
We offer a variety of topical application methods, as every pet has their own preferences. Each topical is made with nontoxic ingredients so that you don’t have to worry about your pet licking off the product.
- Creams: Rich CBD cream-based formulas that absorb into the fur and skin easily. They must be massaged thoroughly so that as much of the compounds actually absorb through the skin rather than stay on the fur.
- Bathing Goods: Look – our pets can get a bit dirty from time to time, especially if they hang out outdoors. CBD bathing products like hemp shampoos are becoming hot items. The CBD pet bathing goods that we offer will clean your pet’s skin and fur while supplying their bodies with ample amounts of hemp compounds.
- Sprays: Easy to apply to your pet as they don’t need to be thoroughly massaged into the skin. Rather, the affected area is simply sprayed with hemp compounds that easily absorb on their own. The sprays that we offer contain quality ingredients that help boost the absorbability of the compounds in hemp.
