What is CBD oil for cats?

CBD oil for cats is a natural product extracted from the hemp plant. It mainly contains cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp.

CBD is highly versatile and can contribute to your feline companion's well-being in various ways. Among other things, it is used for disorders such as anxiety, pain, and inflammation.

Another advantage of CBD oil for cats: it creates neither physical nor psychological dependence. Therefore, you can employ it without worries and stop administering it at any time.

Effect of CBD oil for cats

CBD oil for cats interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS). Every vertebrate has an endocannabinoid system, so CBD has an effect on both humans and cats. The ECS is part of the nervous system and allows the body to utilise cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, and CBG.

Initial studies show that CBD can positively influence many processes in your cat's body.

CBD might have the following effects on cats:

  • Increase mobility,
  • relax,
  • fend off stress,
  • relieve cramps,
  • reduce pain,
  • strengthen the immune system
  • alleviate nausea and support the digestive system,
  • protect skin and coat,
  • relieve acute inflammation

That said, it is impossible to predict the exact effect of CBD on a concrete cat. The effect depends on breed, body weight, state of health, and individual metabolism. CBD interacts with CB-1 and CB-2 receptors. CB-1 receptors are located in the brain, while CB-2 receptors are found throughout the body.

Uses of CBD oil for cats

Cats are cherished family members and accompany millions of people through everyday life. If there is something wrong with the cat, it puts a strain on the whole family. A weakened immune system makes cats more susceptible to diseases. And if a cat feels unwell, this also has a negative effect on the cat owner.

CBD oil for cats is a great way to do something good for your beloved companion. CBD oil is a universal product and can be used for all breeds.

Cats are generally very resilient animals and often give their owners the impression of being invulnerable. In reality, many of them experience pain. And usually, the owners don't notice much of it because cats naturally tend not to express their discomfort. CBD has a positive effect on both sick and healthy cats.

According to reports and initial studies, CBD may support the body's reaction to the following complaints:

  1. Stress and anxiety
  2. Pain and inflammation
  3. Arthritis

CBD oil for cats also contributes to a healthy coat and a strong immune system. The effects and benefits mentioned apply to cats and all animals with an endocannabinoid system.

So dogs, horses, or rabbits can enjoy the same positive effects.

Benefits of CBD oil for cats

The benefits of our CBD oil for cats are in plain sight, and we have summarized them below:

  1. Easy to administer: You can add the oil to your cat's food or use the bite-proof dropper to drip it directly under its tongue.

  2. Has an optimal bioavailability: Thanks to its high bioavailability, the body absorbs it very quickly. Accordingly, the effect can kick in quickly.

  3. Allows a precise dosage: With CBD oil for cats, you can determine the CBD content per drop with great precision. This allows you to adjust the dosage to your cat's needs.

  4. It is a pure and natural product: To produce our oil, we rely exclusively on organic ingredients from our own cultivation.

  5. It is versatile: This oil can support your cat's reaction to a wide range of ailments as well as improve general well-being. It is also suitable for topical use.

  6. It is safe: As it is specifically tailored to the needs of pets, it does not contain THC.

How to administer CBD oil for cats

Cats are notoriously picky and reject certain food, a vexing issue for many cat owners. And CBD oil does indeed have a strong taste that many cats do not like. At enecta, we have, therefore, chosen olive oil as a carrier substance to provide a milder taste.

There are two simple ways to make hemp oil palatable to cats:

1. A direct oral administration: This approach works with particularly trusting cats and consists in dropping the CBD oil into the cat's mouth using a specific, resistant dropper.

2. Mix into the feed: Mix a few drops of CBD into your cat's food. This way, most cats won't notice it.

It is not recommended to drip CBD oil for cats into the water bowl. Cats are very sensitive to water quality, and the irritating taste could put them off.

Dosage of CBD oil for cats

As with most animals, making a dosage recommendation for cats is very difficult. The effect of CBD is an individual matter. Every cat reacts differently to CBD, just as we do.

The correct CBD oil dosage for cats depends on the following factors:

  • What breed is it?
  • How old is the cat?
  • What is the state of health?
  • What complaints need to be relieved?
  • How heavy is the cat?

Generally, you should choose a low dosage for small, light cats. Large, heavy cats with a body weight of over 5 kg can tolerate a little more CBD. Orienting yourself to your cat's body weight usually works best.

We recommend proceeding as follows:

Start with a low CBD dosage and work your way to the optimal CBD amount with patience. Once you have found the right dosage, you can stick to it and only adjust it in extraordinary situations. You can use these guidelines to dose CBD for cats properly:

Weight CBD dosage for cats
lightweight (2-3 kg) 1 mg CBD per day
medium (3-5 kg) 2 mg CBD per day
heavy (> 5 kg) 2,5-4 mg CBD per day

In addition, the following rule of thumb can help find the correct dosage: Weight in kg * 0.4 mg CBD = daily dose

If in doubt, always consult a veterinarian. Also, remember that CBD oil for cats is not a substitute for a balanced diet.

Side effects of CBD oil for cats

CBD oil for cats is considered to be almost free of side effects. Nevertheless, it is essential to follow the dosage recommendations and observe the oil's effect closely, especially at the beginning.

In the rare cases where side effects do occur, they are mainly due to excessive dosage and usually disappear within a few hours. If your cat is on medication, you should discuss the administration of hemp oil with a veterinarian.

What to look for when buying CBD oil for cats?

CBD oil does not contain any toxic or harmful ingredients for any animal. CBD is only dangerous if it is of poor quality. If you buy CBD oil for cats, you should make sure that it is specially made for cats or animals.

Hemp oil for animals has a different formulation than ordinary CBD products. Olive oil is usually used together with hemp oil. Furthermore, CBD oil for cats must not contain THC or terpenes. CBD products with THC are absolutely unsuitable for animals!

The psychoactive THC triggers an intoxication in dogs and cats, just as it does in humans. In contrast to humans, however, animals can metabolise THC only very slowly. The result is a severe and unpleasant horror trip for your cat.

What is CBD oil for cats made from?

This CBD oil for cats is composed exclusively of natural ingredients:

Hemp oil: Our cold-pressed hemp seed oil is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and thus helps to strengthen the immune system.

CBD: By interacting with the ECS, CBD contributes to endocannabinoid balance, which in turn can positively affect your cat's health and well-being.

Vitamin E: This vitamin is contained in our hemp seed oil. It has an antioxidant effect and contributes significantly to cell protection.

Olive oil: Ensure that your cat will enjoy taking it.

How to determine the quality of CBD oil for cats

To ensure that your cat benefits from all the positive properties of CBD, you should choose a high-quality product.

To help you with this, we have listed the questions we think you should ask yourself before buying CBD oil for cats:

  • Does it contain organic CBD?
  • Is the oil subject to thorough quality controls?
  • Is it one hundred percent natural?
  • Is it completely THC-free?
  • What do other users say?

If you buy from our shop, you don't need to worry about this. Enecta Premium CBD Oil for Cats contains nothing but organically grown ingredients and is 100% THC-free. To leave no doubt, we rely on regular quality controls carried out by independent third-party laboratories.

All the products we offer are the result of our own work. Therefore, we can guarantee a natural CBD oil that provides your cat with the best of nature.

CBD oil for cats testimonials

Cats are among the most popular pets in the world. They are famous for their independent personality and their stubborn way of life. Affectionate cuddling sessions quickly develop into wild discovery tours through their own territory.

Cats are very tough on the one hand and very sensitive on the other. For this reason, more people are relying on CBD to support cats and strengthen their health. The majority report positive results. CBD has also proven to be effective when classical veterinary medicine did not get anywhere.

For example, one reads that CBD has helped to cope with persistent restlessness or has significantly alleviated joint pain in older cats. The high tolerance of the oil as well as the absence of adverse effects, are two other advantages often mentioned.

Legal status of CBD oil for cats

Whether for dogs, cats, or horses: CBD is legal in many countries and available without a prescription. It is just not allowed to be advertised or sold as a medicine and must not contain THC.

With our premium CBD oil for cats, you are on the safe side. On the one hand, we refine it until it doesn't even contain traces of THC. On the other hand, we have its quality and purity regularly checked by independent third-party laboratories.

Questions and answers about CBD oil for cats

Those who have cats want only the best for them. Accordingly, many questions come up. In this chapter, we've tried to answer the most frequent ones.

THC has a psychoactive effect and is definitely dangerous to the health of cats. THC induces intoxication in humans, which the body metabolises after a certain time. Pets, in general, metabolise THC very slowly. If cats consume THC, they will experience an intoxication that lasts for several hours and is harmful to the animal.

Among cats, health impairments are a common consequence of THC consumption. CBD products that contain THC are not recommended for animals. So make sure that the hemp oil you're purchasing has been produced for animals.

Just in case, it is best to be prepared to react properly. Side effects are extremely rare with natural CBD products. If side effects do occur, they are not life-threatening, and after a few hours, the cat should be fine again. It just has to metabolise the active ingredient. In general, it is not necessary to consult a veterinarian right away.

If the animal's condition does not return to normal even after a few hours, you should seek the advice of a vet. Especially as a beginner, it is essential to observe the animal carefully after it has taken the oil.

CBD oil has proven positive for many users. Some cat owners report chronic pain that has completely disappeared through CBD intake. In some cases, veterinarians were faced with a conundrum, and the pet owners were desperate. Conventional preparations all lacked the desired effect.

Only hemp oil for animals proved capable of solving the situation, allowing pets and owners to relax again finally. The most common effect of CBD is probably relaxation. Not only dogs but also cats can be very temperamental. As it does in humans, CBD can trigger a very calming effect in animals.

Most cats react very well to CBD oil from enecta. Nevertheless, as a reputable company, we would like to speak openly about this aspect. In very rare cases, your pet may experience side effects after taking CBD. In order to detect them, you need to observe the animal's behaviour closely. Unusual behaviour, reduced activity (less vital), gastrointestinal problems, and a changed appetite can be possible side effects.

Yet, they are extremely rare and not life-threatening, and they disappear after a short time. If your cat does not tolerate CBD well, you should refrain from administering it altogether.

The crucial factor to consider is the cat's character.

There are basically two ways to administer CBD to cats:

  1. Orally with a resistant dropper
  2. Mixed into the feed

Studies have shown that oral administration works much better in dogs. The same could be the case with cats. So if your cat is particularly trusting and well-tempered, you should prefer the first option. Alternatively, you can always mix the oil into your cat's food.

Overall, administering CBD to pets is a matter of trial and error. Over time, you'll understand which method works best.

Most importantly, the CBD product must be free of THC and terpenes. Terpenes are also molecules found in hemp that are harmful to animals. Ideally, you should buy a CBD product that is explicitly made for animals.

If the manufacturer explicitly points this out, it can be assumed that no other dangerous substances have been added. Generally, you are on the safe side if the CBD preparation is 100% organic according to the manufacturer. If you only use natural ingredients, it is very difficult to harm humans and animals.
