As time passes, we learn more about CBD, which benefits all of us, even our furry friends who can’t verbalize their needs. Instead, they’ll make us guess while they give us a long, intense stare with those cute puppy dog eyes. If you have a cat, they may be a little more direct or aggressive when trying to convey their needs, but we love them nonetheless. CBD Pet Balms are great for dogs, cats, or any other animal (well, mammal) that tugs at your heartstrings every day.
But what is a CBD Pet Balm, and what does it do? Let’s find out.
What Is CBD for Pets?
CBD is a non-psychoactive and non-toxic compound found within the Cannabis Sativa plant. Full spectrum products contain less than 0.3% THC, and broad spectrum products — such as our CBD pet products — contain non-detectable levels of THC.
CBD for pets means your pet gets to experience the therapeutic benefits of CBD without any intoxicating or adverse effects that may stress them out or cause more anxiety than they started with.
Does My Pet Need CBD Pet Balm?
Our pets have sensitive areas that need a little extra care sometimes. Pay close attention to your pet’s paws, pads, nose, and elbows.
Are they dry, cracked, red, or inflamed?
If so, your pet is an excellent candidate for our CBD Pet Balm. But even if there’s no immediate issue, it’s still a great product to add to your pet’s wellness routine.
The nourishing properties of hemp seed oil, odorless salmon oil, shea butter, lavender, and Roman chamomile are soothing, calming, and restorative — providing an extra layer of protection to their most sensitive areas.
Furthermore, sometimes our pets get painful, itchy skin rashes. Our CBD Pet Balm contains an array of soothing ingredients with natural anti-inflammatory properties that reduce irritation associated with some of the more common skin issues our pets encounter.
You’re probably wondering how you’re supposed to apply this kind of product.
Let’s jump into that next.
How to Use a CBD Pet Balm
Applying a CBD Pet Balm is extremely simple. In fact, it’s one of the most straightforward ways to give your dog or cat CBD since the cannabinoid content never enters their bloodstream.
All you need to do is rub some of the balm into the affected area — the nose, paws, pads, elbows, which can easily become dry, cracked, and inflamed.
Dog noses are prone to drying out, particularly in the hot sun or cold weather — much like our human lips chap if we don’t protect them with lip balm. Given that dogs’ most powerful sense is smell, that sniffer gets an intense workout nearly every waking moment. So, keeping their nose hydrated and protected is a must.
Dog and cat paw pads form thick layers since they walk on them, well, every day. This makes their paws susceptible to drying, cracking, and infection — ouch!
Our CBD Pet Balm softens these areas, alleviating uncomfortable cracking and sensitivity. Start with a small amount, rubbing it into the affected area one to two times a day. You want to make sure you stick to a routine, so your pet gets the most out of their pet balm.
Let’s Talk Ingredients
With any product, there are always a few superstar ingredients shining through, providing all the right kinds of benefits. Let’s take a closer look at some of the standout ingredients in our CBD Pet Balm.
Organic, Broad Spectrum CBD
All of our pet products contain organically grown hemp, harvested right here in the U.S.A. We use a triple-pass CO2 extraction process that produces the cleanest CBD oil on the market — free of any harmful chemical residues.
Hemp Seed Oil
There’s always a bit of confusion when it comes to differentiating CBD oil and hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil comes exclusively from the hemp seeds, and CBD oil comes from the flowers, leaves, and stems — where the cannabinoid content resides.
Hemp seed oil provides deep nourishment and moisturization, which is why it’s often utilized in beauty and skincare formulations. So you can think of this CBD Pet Balm as the moisturizer your pet needs applied daily.
Alaskan Salmon Oil
Salmon oil is an incredibly nutrient-rich supplement. For years, humans have taken fish oil to support everything from heart health to immune function. This stems from two fatty acids that are readily available in the oil: omega-3 and omega-6 acids.
For the skin, these fatty acids serve as an effective anti-inflammatory, as well as make the skin appear shiny and vibrant. The omega-3 acid known as eicosapentaenoic acid, in particular, produces arachidonic acid, which restricts the growth of pro-inflammatory agents.
Oh, and we agree that salmon can be pretty darned stinky around the house. That’s why our Alaskan salmon oil is processed to be completely odor-free, so you won’t have to worry about your pet offending.
Roman Chamomile Oil
We spoke briefly about dry, cracked paws being susceptible to infection. The inclusion of Roman chamomile provides anti-inflammatory effects that reduce the probability of infection. Chamomile is also great for your pet’s skin and coat.
Shea butter is one of the most natural skin conditioners you’ll find these days. It comes from the shea tree, most commonly found in Africa.
Here’s how natural shea butter is. Kernels are picked from the tree, removed from the seed, boiled, and this natural butter rises to the top. Shea butter contains tons of healthy fats that soothe dry, inflamed, itchy, and scaly skin issues — perfect for your pup’s calloused paws.
You want the best for your pet, that’s obvious — or you wouldn’t have made it all the way down here! Our CBD Pet Balm is the perfect addition to your dog or cat’s wellness routine, giving their skin, coat, paws, and noses the nourishment they need, but can’t convey.
Remember, a moisturized pet is a happy pet!
