On the internet you will find a huge amount of information about CBD oil for animals.
We've compiled this wealth of information for you to answer the exact questions any dog owner, cat lover, or horse enthusiast has about CBD for our four-legged friends.
We explain exactly what CBD for pets is, what to look for when purchasing CBD products for pets, and what to consider when giving your pet CBD.
What is CBD
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It has been linked for some time to a wide variety of health benefits, including reducing stress, promoting restful sleep, and even relieving inflammation and pain.
CBD works through the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a system that every human and mammal possesses. This endogenous cannabinoid system is part of the central nervous system and the body's own cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body.
The ECS is made up of the body's own endocannabinoid and receptors, such as CB1 and CB2. The endocannabinoids formed naturally in the body interact with the receptors and affect a variety of functions.
However, in times of increased stress, this system can become overwhelmed. The consequences are noticeable imbalances such as sleep disturbances, pain, cramps or intestinal disorders. Plant-based cannabinoids help you get back in balance.
Happy (pet) animals with Dutch Hemp organic CBD oil
The high-quality and versatile Dutch Hemp organic CBD oils offer the ideal addition to the daily care of your four-legged friends.
The precious ingredients are composed in such a way that both body and soul of the animals benefit greatly from regular oral care.
In addition to flavonoids and vitamins, our Dutch Hemp organic CBD oils also contain the non-psychoactive hemp ingredient cannabidiol (CBD).
Dogs in particular have a very large number of endocannabinoid receptors in the brainstem and cerebellum. But cats, horses and small rodents such as rabbits and hamsters can also benefit from the broad spectrum of CBD effects on various issues to support both quality of life and more holistic well-being in everyday busy animal life.
Dutch Hemp CBD oil: developed together with specialist veterinarians
Our customers also often report that Dutch Hemp products simplify coat care and that hair growth in both cats and dogs has improved since the administration of CBD.
We have also received positive feedback on joint problems in dogs. In addition, a decrease in inner restlessness was observed in nervous animals.
The best organic CBD quality for our four-legged friends
It is important to pay close attention to the quality of CBD oil for animals. Not every manufacturer produces with organic hemp, processes the raw materials as carefully as possible and carries out continuous internal and external quality checks. But it is precisely these checks that guarantee that Dutch Hemp products are of the highest quality.
The certified organic hemp we use also comes from organic, sustainable and regional cultivation in Germany. Of course, all Dutch Hemp CBD oils are GMO-free and contain no pesticides and pesticides.
The use of organic CBD oils for animals
Dutch Hemp organic CBD oils are suitable for horses, alpacas, llamas, dogs, cats, and small rodents such as guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters and others.
We recommend using 1 drops in the mouth 2 to 3 times a day. The organic CBD oils can also be administered through food or as a snack.
When giving CBD oil to cats, make sure that the oil is free of terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that occur naturally in many plants. They give tree resin its specific scent, but are also found in juniper and mint. Humans can tolerate terpenes without any problem, but they are not recommended for cats. Scientists suspect this has to do with a lack of enzymes in cats that are needed to metabolize terpenes.
Cats are therefore only allowed to have CBD oil without terpenes and that is why at Dutch Hemp they have developed Organic CBD Oil 4% for cats without terpenes. Please note that the THC content is less than 0,0%. Dutch Hemp organic CBD oil 4% for cats is free from THC. In general, we recommend that you always consult your vet before use to determine the correct dosage.
Which CBD oil for my pet?
With the Dutch Hemp organic CBD oils you can choose from different products with organic CBD, depending on the type and weight of the animal.
