《CBD for pets —— Guidelines and Precautions》

Recently, CBD has come above the radar in Hong Kong, attracting many people to try out related products. Do you know that CBD products are good for pets too?


「What’s CBD? What’s its effect on our body?」


The full name of CBD is Cannabidiol, and it is a compound extracted from the cannabis plant. CBD can relieve the following symptoms:


– Anxiety, stress

-Loss of appetite

-Joint problems


-Skin problems


「Is CBD marijuana? Is it addictive or illegal? 」


Cannabis contains a variety of cannabinoids, of which the most active ones are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The former will cause addiction, so it is classified as a dangerous drug; but the latter does not contain addictive elements, so it is not a dangerous drug, hence it is legal and safe.


「How does CBD work? Does it have any side effects?」


Most vertebral animals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for regulating physiological functions. Simply put, CBD helps to balance ECS so that the body can function normally. Therefore, it won’t cause extra burden to the body, so there is no need to worry! (If you want to know more, seek for doctor’s advice!)


「What CBD products are available? Can I use CBD product for humans on pets?」


For the time being, there are two main types of CBD products for pets on the market:


-CBD oil

-CBD snacks


One thing to note is that because pets have more developed ECS, the amount of CBD inhalation is less than that of humans. Therefore, CBD products used by pets usually have lower CBD content. So try not to use human CBD products to feed pets~
