CBD OIL FOR CATS - FACTS

UNDERSTANDING CBD HEMP OIL FOR CATS AND PETS IN THE UK

THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL PAGE SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT!...

We need to set the record straight and point out the law here in the UK with regards to CBD hemp oil for cats as there is so much confusing information on the internet. 

The UK law states that CBD oil ‘ADVERTISED/MARKETED’ towards cats is illegal, this means any CBD oil advertised or marketed in the UK via a website online or in your local shop etc.. is breaking the law! We understand the main reason behind the UK having such a silly law in place at the min is to protect our beloved pets from owners giving them the wrong CBD dosages, poor quality fake CBD oil and the fact they now class CBD oil as a medication due to its potential health benefits for animals and any medication needs to be recommended/prescribed from a vet. The VMD (Veterinary Medicines Directorate – a government agency who control safety and quality of veterinary medicines now) class CBD as a medicine due to the fact (WHO) The World Health organisation are currently doing tests on animals showing results of CBD oil actually working and having positive effects on animals for epilepsy and chronic pain relief, with this in mind the VMD can no longer ignore the fact that CBD oil now has some positive effects on animals and have taken a stance until they have more information on the health benefits of CBD oil for cats.

THE LAW - UK GOVERNMENT EXPLANATION ABOUT SELLING CBD OIL FOR CATS IN THE UK

AN EXTRACT FROM THE VMD & UK GOVERNMENT

Veterinary Medicinal Products Containing Cannabidiol

We consider that veterinary products containing Cannabidiol (CBD) are veterinary medicines and should be regulated as such. We have made this decision on the basis that products containing CBD fulfil the following definition of a veterinary medicine in the Veterinary Medicines Regulations (VMR) by virtue of the effects they have: any substance or combination of substances that may be used in, or administered to, animals with a view either to restoring, correcting or modifying physiological functions by exerting a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action, or to making a medical diagnosis.

Marketing Authorisation Requirement For CBD Products

CBD products for use in animals therefore now require a marketing authorisation before they can be sold or supplied in the UK. There are currently NO CBD based products that have been granted a UK veterinary marketing authorisation.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WILL I GET IN TROUBLE IF I BUY CBD OIL AND GIVE IT TO MY CAT?

NO – This UK law is about companies selling and marketing CBD oil towards animals because CBD is not a regulated industry within the UK yet and with so many poor-quality fake CBD oils for cats on the market in the UK, the VMD have taken a stance to try and control this until they can bring in some regulations. In the mean-time it is fully OK for you to find out more information about quality lab tested and certified CBD oil and speak directly with your local vet to discuss the possibilities of giving CBD oil to your cat – ONLY upon speaking direct with your vet should you consider giving any medication or supplement to your cat.

WHY SHOULD WE BE THE ONLY ONES THAT CAN ENJOY THE HUGE RANGE OF BENEFITS OF CBD OIL?

The law in America and other countries is not the same as in the UK and as you can see these countries have many specialists in animal welfare that have been conducting their own privately funded studies/tests and show some incredible results. CBD oil for pets is a massive business in America and accounts for nearly 1/3 of the CBD sales (do you really think this would be able to happen if they thought it would be harmful to our beloved cats? – we don’t!!).

HOW DOES CBD OIL WORK FOR CATS?

We know one of the most difficult parts of owning a cat is seeing your furry friend in pain or distress. Cats can suffer many of the same ailments as humans, including anxiety, arthritis, cancer, and epilepsy, as well as sleep problems. Your cat and you share the same encatenous cannabinoid system allowing CBD Oil to have just as good effect on your cat as it would for you! CBD oil works by supplementing your cat’s endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for regulating your cat’s mood, pain levels, inflammation, appetite, immunity, sleep cycle, and more! CBD Oil targets receptors located in the cats brain, organs, central nervous system and immune cells that provide a possible HUGE range of benefits making it perfect for our furry friends!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD OIL FOR CATS & HUMAN CBD?

CBD for humans and for animals is exactly the same quality CBD hemp oil with the main difference being the label on the front of the packaging (Human CBD having a picture of a person on the front and the Cat CBD having an animal picture on the front), the other differences being the strengths of the CBD oil ranging from 100mg right up to 2000mg+ and sometimes additional additives and flavourings have been added to make the CBD oil more palatable for your animal.

FULL SPECTRUM CBD HEMP OIL FOR CATS AND THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT

Full spectrum CBD hemp oil is when you have all the major cannabinoids present in the oil (The Cannabis plant is made up of over 100+ cannabinoids and having more present in the CBD oil brings in more benefits it can help produce. These cannabinoids give each other a helping hand as a single version of CBD can have a hard time passing the blood brain barrier for absorption, and the effects will be shunted, this happens as CBD relies on some of the other cannabinoids to help it pass through where it can interact with the receptors – We call this the ENTOURAGE EFFECT and this synergy of working together magnifies the CBD oil potency. There is 4 kinds of CBD oil on the market in the UK at the min (1) FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL – this is made with the whole plant and includes everything you would want from a natural supplement, (2) 99%+ CBD ISOLATE OIL – this is made using just the CBD cannabinoid and doesn’t contain any other cannabinoid, (3) HEMP SEED OIL – this is made using ONLY cold pressed hemp seeds and contains NO CBD or any other major cannabinoids and is just like taking olive oil, (4) FAKE CBD OIL – this can be spotted a mile away as it is normally very cheap and doesn’t come with any certification.

CBD, THC, HEMP, MARIJUANA AND CANNABIS WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?

Both Hemp and Marijuana are species of Cannabis plants, and while they have the same Cannabinoids, they have them in very different ratios. Hemp contains very low amounts of THC, whereas Marijuana contains a lot of it. High levels of THC result in the Stoned/High feeling normally associated with Cannabis/Marijuana. Hemp is already naturally low in THC, and we can reduce it even more with basic farming practices giving us Industrial Hemp.  Marijuana has around 20-30%+ THC vs. Industrial Hemp 0.01-0.2% THC. That means Marijuana has one hundred to a thousand times more THC than Industrial Hemp, and this makes all the difference.

FUN CBD FACTS: You don’t have to worry as the UK states CBD Cannabis oil can contain no more than 0.2% THC levels. In fact, that tiny little bit of THC actually contributes to some big therapeutic CBD oil benefits, especially for epilepsy in dogs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CBD OIL FOR CATS

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GIVE MY CAT CBD OIL?

This depends entirely on the type of CBD product you are using and also your cat – CBD Treats (CBD Edibles) can be given straight to the animal to eat at leisure and you have to trust the dosage calculations on the manufacturers packaging or CBD oil tinctures which you can administer directly to the cat’s mouth with the CBD dosages recommended by your local vet.

IF YOU ARE THINKING OF GIVING YOUR CAT CBD HEMP OIL

WHAT TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR LOCAL VET IF YOU ARE THINKING OF GIVING YOUR CAT CBD HEMP OIL.

If you and your vet decide that you should try CBD oil as a treatment for your cat, there are a few things to keep in mind when looking to buy CBD oil. Not all CBD oils are the same; you’ll want a proven high-quality certified CBD oil to have a better chance of it working.

100% NATURAL – The CBD oil should be natural and not contain any pesticides, fungicides, or harmful solvents.

DON’T PRICE SHOP – The higher the quality and purity, the higher the cost. You don’t want to go for a cheaper option that could be fake and even harmful to your cat.

LABORATORY TEST CERTIFICATES – The manufacturer should provide a certificate that tells you the amount of CBD that is in the product. Many CBD products contain only small amounts of CBD if any at all. 

BUY CBD AS A LIQUID V CBD TREATS – You can buy cat treats containing CBD (CBD Edibles), but the best form to administer CBD is using an oil tincture. This way, you can adjust your cat’s CBD dosages drop by drop as advised by your local vet.
