So, without further ado…
What, exactly, is CBD oil?
CBD oil is formally known as cannabidiol, which is an active compound within cannabis. It’s one of many, of course, which also includes the infamous THC, the compound that contributes to a feeling of highness.
CBD, however, does not have any psychoactive effects whatsoever. It’s entirely safe and is best used as an ingredient in health products and as an ingredient in products that assist in healing.
While there are several forms of CBD, one of the more popular forms in which you’ll find the compound is CBD oil, also known as tincture. The CBD oil can be added to virtually any food or drink or can be taken orally by itself if desired.
What symptoms can CBD oil assist in overcoming?
The better question might be, “What symptoms can’t CBD oil assist in overcoming?”
Seriously, there’s a laundry list of ailments that CBD oil can help with. The list includes things such as anxiety and depression, as well as general soreness and chronic pain, as well as serious and extremely painful conditions such as digestive tract pain and inflammation, pancreatitis, seizures, and even cancer.
If your cat is aging and has some general inflammation or is in obvious pain, whether related to joints and bones or the nervous system, CBD oil can do wonders.
It can also help with coat and skin conditions. If your kitty suffers from dry skin or other issues, CBD oil can absolutely help alleviate symptoms and help them overcome the ailment.
In short, if there is any specific issue that your cat is having, consider trying a CBD oil product to help with the issue. While it may not solve the problem entirely, it can certainly help to lessen the symptoms, and in some cases, could even help with aggressive prevention on the front end of any potential issues.
How does CBD oil work?
The bodies of mammals natural have endocannabinoid systems (ECS), and cannabidiol, or CBD, interacts directly with those systems, supplementing them and helping them to function properly.
The system is responsible for several areas within your body, including overall immunity and prevention to sleep, appetite, and pain. Your brain has cannabinoid receptors that are prepared and ready to interact positively with CBD products, ensuring that they are a natural fit with your body and can really move the needle in terms of prevention, recovery, and overall pain management.
Before offering any CBD oil products to your precious feline friend, it’s always a good idea to check with your veterinarian to ensure that the product is a good choice.
But if you get the “a-okay” from the vet, then don’t hesitate. Don’t wait any longer. Your cat deserves the best, and many CBD oil products will do wonders for your cat’s quality of life, and by extension, yours as well.
