07 Feb Your Top 3 “What CBD for Pets” Questions
So many questions are asked about what CBD for pets are the most affordable or which are the safest. Some wonder what CBD for pets actually does – that’s one thing we cannot speak much about since it could be taken as a medical claim. Our industry cannot make claims since the FDA has only accepted 1 CBD product for mass distribution so far. In this guide we’ll tackle the 3 top “what” CBD for pets questions you all have been asking.
What CBD Product is Right for my Pet?
This tops the “what CBD for pets” questions list. The variety of product types available or pets is much smaller than what is available for humans. For pets there are tinctures, capsules, topicals, treats and food. You can make additional items with CBD for pets at home with recipes that we have available here at Pet Health CBD.
When it comes to choosing the right CBD products for your pet consider how easy or difficult is has been to give them medication in the past. If they took other types of medicine well, either a capsule (suggested for pets over 50 pounds) or tincture would work. Tinctures are ideal for small pets because it is much easier to get the appropriate dose measured this way.
Check the list of ingredients to make sure they are all-natural and to ensure that your pet won’t have a reaction to any of them. Read lab reports. Look at the amount of CBD in the product.
What Dosage Frequency is Right for my Pet?
When it comes to what CBD for pets dosage frequency is ideal for your pet, it’s best to start with 2 doses a day. Just as you would with any traditional medication, it’s ideal to set specific times to give your pet his or her dose of CBD daily. A morning dose and an evening dose are best.
Some pets need to be microdosed with smaller, more frequent doses. Discuss the best method with your vet first.
What to Look for on Pet CBD Lab Test Results
We’re often asked what you should be looking for when reviewing pet CBD product lab results. These sheets can be difficult to understand. First – look at the lab’s information. This information should include the lab’s license number, website information, phone number and physical address.
Additional items to look for on Pet CBD product lab results:
- Type of sample received
- Date of sample received
- Date sample tested
- Sample batch number
- Complete cannabinoid profile
- Terpene profile (when available)
- Passing of all sections (pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, contaminants, herbicides, any other chemicals)
- Date of analysis completed
- Date the results are certified
- Live ink signature
When reviewing the contaminants and chemicals sections, always ensure that the results are under the action level amounts. Action levels are amounts of chemicals in which a state deems is unsafe. Products with items that are above the action level should not be sold. Passing sections may represent findings as <LOQ which means less than the limit or level of quantification. An LOQ is the amount a lab can or is required to test for.
