You’ve heard of CBD for dogs, but what about CBD for cats? Our feline friends can benefit from the healing powers of CBD just as much as humans and dogs, but how?
CBD for cats has been known to help make cats more comfortable toward the end of their lives. Cats with cancer or other terminal illness have been known to live longer than expected in less pain and discomfort.
CBD for cats can also help cats who suffer from:
Aggression or grumpiness
Loss of appetite
Constant hiding and fear of strangers, fireworks, and lightning
Crying without a cause
Lack of energy
Some more serious medical issues CBD for cats can help include:
Arthritis: Because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects, many cats benefit from CBD for managing arthritis. People report their cats being more agile and playful after taking CBD.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): IBD is also caused by inflammation and so CBD has been known to improve symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss.
Pancreatitis: Again, pancreatitis is caused by inflammation. Plus, it’s common among cats with IDB. CBD along with a low-fat diet can greatly improve a cat with pancreatitis’ quality of life.
Asthma: Another inflammatory disease, CBD for cats can help kitties have fewer asthma attacks by decreasing inflammation.
Chronic Upper Respiratory Infections: Because CBD is involved in the body’s immune function, it can help cats with chronic viral infections
Seizures: One of the main reasons CBD is used in humans, especially children, can also benefit our feline friends. CBD can drastically decrease the frequency of seizures in humans, especially in intractable forms of epilepsy, and it seems to work the same way in cats.
Skin Conditions: Rubbing CBD oil on cat’s itchy patches or fur can greatly improve irritation for cats because they have cannabis receptors on the skin.
CBD for cats has proved to be effective and virtually harmless in so many kitties, it’s worth a shot if your cat suffers from one of the aforementioned conditions.
