CBD Pet Tinctures?!
Our mission at Cannasté is to build a conscious cannabis community. We want to showcase how to incorporate cannabis into an everyday active and healthy lifestyle. People are so thrilled with our high-quality natural tinctures that they are not only buying one of each of our delicious five flavors, they are recommending us to their friends. But what about “man’s best friend?” Doesn’t your dog, cat or even ferret need love too? We’re excited to start offering this tincture oil CBD for pets in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area!
CBD for Pets
Yes, indeedy — pets can benefit from all the potential benefits of CBD too. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found within the cannabis and hemp plants. Different from delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol better known as THC, the compound most associated with marijuana, CBD produces no “high.” What it does produce, in humans, are positive effects on both the mind and body.
And now, some studies have shown positive effects of CBD for pets as well. While there are, of course, other medications used by veterinarians to treat these issues, many of them come with side-effects such as lethargy and weight gain. Pet CBD in San Francisco has little to no side effects and can be highly effective and far less debilitating. Working with your pet’s endocannabinoid system (or EC system), Bay Area pet CBD oil may help with your pet’s mood, appetite and more.
CBD Oil vs Hemp Oil
While most CBD products are derived from the hemp plant, and not cannabis, you need to be aware that there is a difference between some hemp oils and CBD oil. CBD oil is made from an active cannabinoid compound harvested from the leaves, flowers and stems of a mature plant and can provide medical and therapeutic benefits. Actual hemp oil, on the other hand, is harvested from cannabis seeds and contains little to no CBD. While hemp oil is rich in vitamins and minerals, it does not have the same therapeutic benefits as CBD. So when looking for pet CBD in San Francisco, it is CBD oil and not hemp oil that you want to buy.
How to Find Quality CBD Pet Tinctures
It is important to remember, with animals or humans, not all CBD products are created equally. When looking for CBD for pets in San Francisco, or anywhere online, things to ask yourself before purchasing include:
- Is it organic? Organic is always the best option — but at the very least, you need to make sure your CBD oil for pets is free from pesticides, fungicides and solvents.
- Is the price too good to be true? Look, everyone loves a bargain. But going for the lowest possible price is not always a great choice when it comes to the health of your pet. Higher quality and purity comes at a price. You want to make sure your CBD pet tincture is free from toxic additives such as heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides.
- Is there authentication? Anyone can make wild claims in regard to potency and purity, but you should choose a company that provides third-party testing that shows the exact amount of CBD in your product and proof that it contains zero THC or harmful additives.
- Is it a liquid? While pet CBD can be purchased in many forms, including treats and creams, when evaluating how quickly the CBD is absorbed, how long it stays in the bloodstream, and how fast it is eliminated — CBD oil is the clear winner. Tinctures also offer precise dosage and the ability to adjust the dosage, drop by drop.
While you may be tempted to give your furry friend the CBD product you already use for your own personal consumption, please don’t. Being that the current CBD market is not perfectly regulated, lower-quality CBD for humans may contain ingredients not listed on the label, such as THC. THC can be toxic to both cats and dogs. Also, while you may figure that there’s no harm in sharing those CBD gummies with your furry friend, they are often flavored with artificial sweeteners like Xylitol, which is toxic to animals. And please don’t share your delicious Cannasté tinctures with your pets — we promise they are too good to share! So, yes, get some CBD for yourself. Get some CBD for your pet. But please, don’t mix the two.
