CBD Oil for Cats with Anxiety

There are so many situations that can cause our beloved kitties to be nervous: moving to a new home, adjusting to new cats or people in the house, traveling, or trips to the vet or groomer. CBD (cannabidiol) can be an effective and natural solution to minimize anxiety for cats without harmful side effects. CBD oil for cats can be used situationally for temporary relief or on a longer-term basis for cats with chronic anxiety. If your cat is in pain, the CBD oil can do double-duty, helping them feel more comfortable which can also keep them calmer.

Will CBD oil make your cat high?

While the cannabinoids THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties) and CBD are in both marijuana and hemp, there are very significant differences between the industrial hemp plant from which pet CBD oil is extracted and marijuana. Marijuana contains high levels of THC but far less CBD, while hemp is a rich source of CBD but has almost no THC. It’s important to note that THC can be toxic to pets, but CBD extracted from industrial hemp is safe legal in all states.

The most important differentiation is that hemp CBD offers all the benefits without the THC, so your cat won’t get high–instead, they’ll experience a level of mild relaxation.

What’s the difference between CBD oil and hemp oil?

CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same things, especially for calming purposes. Though they’re from the same Sativa hemp plant and neither product is psychoactive, hemp oil is made from pressed hemp seeds, which do not contain CBD. CBD oil is extracted from hemp flowers, leaves, and stalks, which are rich in the compound. To treat your cat’s anxiety, choose products that clearly state they contain a measured amount of CBD, not hemp oil.

How do you choose the best CBD oil for cats?

Product labeling and advertising can be confusing, so you’ll want to shop carefully to find the best hemp CBD for your cat. Find a product that clearly states the amount of CBD it contains, and make sure that it’s free of heavy metals and pesticides. The manufacturer should have the lab test results readily available for review.

What’s the best way to give a cat CBD?

CBD can help cats with anxiety to feel calmer

We all know that our kitties can be averse to supplements! Fortunately, there are a number of options to choose from. One of the most popular CBDs for cats is a bottled oil that comes with a measured dropper to make it easy to dispense the desired dose. If your cat is not picky, you may want to choose full-spectrum CBD oil with terpenes, which are beneficial, natural compounds that can boost effectiveness. However, full-spectrum CBD can have a bit of a grassy taste that some cats find off-putting. For finicky cats, consider adding a flavorless CBD oil isolate to food or a treat. Most cats will take the flavorless CBD oil readily when added to food or a favorite treat.

An alternative to bottled CBD oil is Coconut Oil with CBD. This is a wonderfully versatile product. It can be applied to the bare skin inside a cat’s ears to be absorbed transdermally or dabbed on paws for cats to lick off. It can be added to food or treats for cats who enjoy the mild coconut flavor.

How much CBD should you give your cat for anxiety?

You may need to do some experimenting to find the right dose because every cat and every situation is different. The typical recommendation is 1–5 mg for a typical 10-pound cat, but there is no known toxicity level.

Try a dose in the middle of the recommended range and watch for calming effects that should occur within an hour. If not, you may want to give more CBD to total up to the upper dosing recommendation. Once you’ve found the right dose, your cat will seem calmer but not lethargic.

Can I give my cat CBD along with other medications?

Make sure to check with your veterinarian before using CBD oil if you’re giving your cat prescription medications. Holistic and integrative vets are often familiar with the benefits of CBD and will be easily able to answer your questions.

People who are looking for drug-free treatments for their cats’ anxiety may find that CBD can be the natural solution for a happier, calmer kitty.

How to Administer CBD to Ears, Gums, and Food

It’s time we address the elephant in the room: while we love the effect that CBD has on our pets, sometimes getting it into their mouths and onto their gums is akin to wrestling an alligator. We are asked all the time if you can just put the CBD oil directly on a treat, or if there is an easier way to administer CBD.

Before you can figure out the easiest way to get CBD into your pet’s system, there are a few things to understand.

Table of Contents

What is bioavailability?

Administering and dosing CBD is all a matter of bioavailability. In layman’s terms, bioavailability refers to the amount of time, and at what rate, something is absorbed into your bloodstream and how much is excreted without effect. This is important because bioavailability effects how much to give in one dose, and how quickly your pet can feel the effects.

Aren’t all ways of administering CBD the same?

Administering CBD to dogs and cats can happen in a few different ways, each with a different level of bioavailability. Some companies sell capsules, while some stick with tinctures and topicals, and while it may seem that it is all the same, the difference lies in how quickly the body can access the medicine (i.e. the bioavailability). Depending on how you apply your pet’s tincture, it’s possible that up to 80% of the medicine could go to waste!

Absorption rates of CBD vs. traditional prescriptions

Unlike many traditional oral medications, research has proven that CBD is effectively and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. A study conducted by the Department of Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel concluded that: “CBD was observed to have a large volume of distribution [in dogs studied].”

In a study conducted by the Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, dogs were found to have a substantial amount of receptors in their endocannabinoid system, specifically in the spine, which allows dogs to more effectively use CBD. That means that when administered into the gums, ear, or with food, it is absorbed in the system effectively. This is far better than many medications, which have to be broken down by several of the body’s systems in order to take effect.

So, what are the best ways to give your pet CBD?

1. ON THE GUMS

The best way to administer CBD is directly on to the gums. This method works best because the medicine is absorbed through the mucous membrane (transmucosal) in the mouth and the full spectrum hemp extract (CBD) then goes directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract altogether. This also minimizes the number of active compounds, or cannabinoids, that are lost or killed off in the digestive tract.

2. On the food or treats

Treats and other food products will take longer to show effect and are generally less effective. This is because they must go all the way through the digestive tract and filtration processes like the first pass of the liver. This results in less of the medicine reaching the parts of the body where your pet needs it most. There is definitely reason to believe that treats are an effective way to administer CBD, seeing as the stomach and GI system is full of cannabinoid receptors. Tinctures, however, can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream by a variety of methods with greater efficiency and speed.

3. Rub into the ears

If you are unable to get your pet to take a tincture orally, or on their food, try applying your tincture to the soft skin of your dog or cat’s inner ear! This is the least bioavailable option and will also take the longest to reach the bloodstream. We recommend you apply the oil to your finger and rub it into the area where the fur stops growing.

Don’t forget to micro-dose

By breaking up your dog or cat’s dose though the day or, ‘micro-dosing’ the CBD will stay at a higher concentration in your pet’s body for longer. In fact, the half-life of CBD taken orally by a dog is about 4-6 hours, according to a recent study. They demonstrated that an oral tincture reached peak concentration in the blood around two hours after administration. By around 6-8 hours, the medicine was nearly back to base levels.

This is especially helpful for dealing with anxiety, aches, pains, and seizures. You can read more about micro-dosing, and dosing in general in our post here.

Remember: whether you dose once a day or multiple times, make sure to fully wipe off your dropper before putting it back into the bottle. While we love puppy kisses, doggy drool can actually cause a full spectrum hemp extract (CBD) tincture to become less effective as the bacteria in the saliva can break down the formula.

Topicals

Did you know that similar to humans, the largest organ in a dog’s body is their skin?

Not only is cannabis medicine effective to use internally for system wide, internal treatment; another effective way to give our pets CBD is by applying it topically to their skin! That’s right, dogs and cats have the same receptors on the surface and throughout their skin that interact with CBD and the other compounds found in the cannabis plant.

On our animal rescue, we see a lot of different animals, each with their own set of challenges and issues. One of the main things we end up treating for are diseases and infections that specifically effect the skin. On a daily basis, I am treating for bug bites, scratches, and dry paws; even tumors, cysts and other gag-worthy growths and gashes.

Research has shown that dogs have three distinct layers of skin. Each layer of skin is full of the same CB1 and CB2 receptors that are found in the internal organs and thought the central nervous system. This makes it possible for the skin to absorb the compounds and use them in higher concentrations in the exact place where they are hurting. All those awesome anti-inflammatory and regulatory benefits are something a lot of pets could benefit from in helping with issues effecting the skin.

It’s a great way for us to be able to target our pets ailments both systemically and right at the source of the problem. Take for instance, one of our most dramatic turnarounds. Daisey’s mast-cell tumor was treated internally with our Heal tincture and externally with the Remedy salve. By targeting her cancer in more than one way, we were able to heal the main sites of the disease and support the immune system at the same time.

Some tips for administering a salve or other topical cream:

Try to get it as close to the surface of the skin as possible

  • It’s important that when you’re applying a topical, it gets to the surface of the skin where it will be absorbed and put to work. Your pet’s hair follicles do have the ability to wick the CBD downward, but it’s good to get as close a possible to source of the problem. If you’re looking to get at a place with a lot of fur on it, part their fur and apply it to the base of the hair follicles and get as much on the actual skin as possible. Don’t worry about the salve getting in their coat. Think of it as a moisturizing hair mask, with amazing medicinal benefits!

Choose a topical that is non-toxic if ingested

  • All of CBD Dog Health’s salves are made completely from natural ingredients that if ingested will only benefit your pet more. Our formulas and the essential oils we use are designed for the surface of the skin, but completely safe if your pet licks it off. Just make sure, you let it soak in for at least 10 minutes before they make a treat out of their skin remedy.

All the same things that you look for to make sure a tincture is good go for topicals!
