Everything You Need to Know About CBD for Your Pet
If you have heard of CBD, you probably also have heard that it offers many benefits for common pet ailments.
The science behind CBD and why it works, however, can be tricky to understand, because it can come from multiple sources and can be used in several different ways. But if you haven’t heard of CBD, I’ll begin with a brief overview of what it is:
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the natural cannabinoid that is found in industrial hemp/cannabis. A common misconception about CBD is that it can come only from marijuana, which is another cannabis plant; however, CBD products for pets are derived from industrial hemp, which is not the exact same plant as marijuana. The difference is that marijuana contains very high levels of the cannabinoid THC, which is a psychoactive property. Industrial hemp, on the other hand, contains a very high amount of CBD and very little THC. In short, all cannabis strains share a lot of the same medical benefits, but because industrial hemp contains very little THC, it offers the medical benefits without the “high.”
Petwell Supply carries Kurapet CBD products that are designed for both cats and dogs, and offer great benefits for ailments like anxiety, joint pain, cancer, and much more. Because CBD offers so many medical benefits, Kurapet has designed a few different forms of CBD products that cater specifically to certain ailments to make it easier for both you and your pet to use:

Kurapet’s CBD products also are ideal for many other pet ailments including arthritis, diabetes, digestion, aging, and overall wellness. Another great benefit to using CBD products is that you can experiment with dosage to determine what will work best for your pet without any negative side effects. Still, it is always wise to speak to your vet before you begin using CBD products, because CBD can also be a fantastic alternative to traditional prescription medications that your pet may already be taking.
