Americans are willing to pay their weight in gold in the name of self-care. Globally, it’s a $4.2 trillion industry. But what about our pets? Don’t the furry members of our family deserve the best in overall wellness too? As one of the most essential wellness supplements that you can give your furry friend, this is where CBD pet products come in.
Why Should I Give My Pet CBD?
All mammals (humans included!) have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). The biological function of the ECS in both humans and animals is to promote homeostasis or the body’s natural state of balance. Since receptors are found throughout the body, the ECS affects the health of many organ systems, including the nervous system, musculoskeletal system, digestive system, and immune system. When your ECS becomes depleted from environmental stressors and lifestyle factors, CBD can help return the ECS to a state of balance and optimal functioning. It’s because of their ECS system that pets are able to respond so well to the benefits of CBD pet products.
Is CBD Pet Care Safe?
CBD is one of the active compounds that makes hemp such an effective wellness tool. Our pure CBD and broad spectrum CBD harness one of the most powerful elements in nature and contain no THC. Our full spectrum CBD pet products contain 0.3% THC or less and are nontoxic and nonpsychoactive to both pets and humans. The benefits of full spectrum include the entourage effect, which highlights the synergy of additional plant constituents and accentuates the powerful wisdom of nature.
Hemp became legal after the passage of the Farm Bill in 2018. CBD derived directly from hemp has shown to be a safer and healthier alternative to other forms of CBD, which aided in its legalization. Green Gorilla™ uses USDA Certified Organic cultivation and manufacturing practices, and all of our CBD pet care products are third-party lab tested for purity and potency. We source only the cleanest, purest organic ingredients so you never have to worry about safety when buying our CBD pet products.
How Much CBD Should I Give My Pet?
We recommend starting with 2-4mg of CBD per 10lbs. The dosage can be adjusted from there to fit your pet’s needs. The general rule of thumb is “start low and go slow.”
Which CBD Products Should I Give My Pet?
Choosing your CBD pet products depends on the desired effects and your pet’s needs. CBD pet snacks are a convenient and tasty place to start. Our Freeze-Dried CBD Dog Nibs are made with freeze-dried lamb and only the cleanest organic co-ingredients. Each treat contains approximately 3mg of CBD for easy dosing.
For pickier pets or larger animals that need higher doses, CBD oil may be a more versatile option. Green Gorilla™ pure and whole plant CBD oils come in a variety of concentrations so you can customize to your pet’s ideal dosage. CBD oil can be dispensed directly into your pet’s mouth for the best bioavailability or drizzled on their food. Pets love the mild flavor of CBD oil pet products. Plus, they’ll get the added antioxidant health benefits of organic extra-virgin olive oil.
For skin irritations, Organic CBD Balm for Dogs & Cats 300mg offers soothing relief. Each jar contains 300mg of pure, active CBD and powerful botanicals like eucalyptus and lavender.
Pets need relief just like we do. Supplementing with CBD pet care is one of the best ways you can provide whole-body wellness and vitality for your loyal companion.
