In the immortal words of Charlie Day, “Does your cat make too much noise all the time? Stomping around, driving you crazy?” Well, we don’t sell Kitten Mittens, but we do have an equally essential product for any cat parent: Pet CBD! Cats have endocannabinoid systems just like humans do, which means that they too can experience the amazing benefits of cannabidiol. Whether they suffer from stress disorders, hyperactivity, adventure-related injuries, or joint pain from old age, CBD may be a wonderful addition to their daily diet. At Discover CBD we sell cat treats as well as pet tinctures that are safe for cats and other animals.
Unfortunately, stress disorders are not uncommon in cats. They are very habitual and routine-oriented creatures, so unexpected changes can really affect their mental health. Moving to a new home, having guests over, a loud storm, or even changing their litter or food brand could heighten their levels of stress. Some also suffer from separation-stress when their beloved owner is at work or goes out of town for the weekend.
My cat Bonsai has a history of nervously tearing up carpet when we leave the house for too long. It’s easy to get frustrated by this, but we must remind ourselves of her perspective: We are her entire world and social circle, as well as her food providers, so if we disappear she has nothing to live for. Imagine the kind of stress that would cause! Luckily, CBD can help immensely with this. By giving Bonsai daily doses of CBD with her meals, we have completely eliminated her destructive nervous habit and she seems happier and more calm in general. She has become quite fond of the 120mg Bacon Flavored Pet Tincture, which we mix into her wet food.
Another unfortunate aspect of caring for a cat is their inevitable decline into old age, and the pains that come along with it. Bonsai is now in her senior years, and is not as spry as she once was. She is a lot more cautious with big jumps, whether it’s to and from her cat tower, or our bed in the mornings. Her old joints are a little more delicate these days, and a hard landing can leave her aching. It is a difficult thing to watch, but CBD has helped quite a bit with this issue as well. CBD can have anti-inflammatory and analgesic painkilling properties, without the negative sedative effects of heavy pharmaceutical painkillers that the vet may prescribe. With her daily dose of CBD she seems to be a lot more confident in her jumps and quick movements, and has more energy for play-hunting sessions. Now that she doesn’t have to worry so much about joint pain, she is back to being a mighty, majestic huntress. That piece of string doesn't stand a chance!
Pets deserve to feel good, both physically and mentally. If you think that your cat might benefit from CBD, now is a great time to try it. Your beloved pet may not thank you with words, but it’s worth it to see them relieved of pain and stress. You can order online and have pet CBD products shipped to you, or stop by one of our retail locations and pick them up. We’re always happy to talk with you about your options and answer any questions you may have about starting your furry friend on a CBD regimen!
