There are countless different ways that CBD can be administered for people– from edibles to smokeable products, it can come down to personal preference as well as what condition or ailment you’re looking to treat. So, what about pets? Can pets use topical CBD products? And what are the benefits available with topical application? Let’s take a closer look at how your furry loved one could potentially benefit from topical CBD application.
The Benefits of Topical CBD Application for Pets
CBD can be applied topically to pets just like you and me. All pets have an endocannabinoid system. This system is what makes CBD a potentially viable option for treating numerous conditions for pets. Pets have cannabinoid receptors that are located throughout their layers of skin. Applying CBD topically may offer relief for certain skin conditions like hot spots. The linoleic acid and essential fatty acid content in full-spectrum CBD may also promote skin and fur health. CBD can also be applied topically to specific problem areas like inflamed joints or mild to moderate injuries. Another benefit of CBD topicals is that the majority of the product is absorbed into the skin with very minimal amounts actually reaching the bloodstream. This shouldn’t cause drug interactions (like ingestible CBD) and may provide another way to incorporate into your pet’s regimen if they’re already taking medication. Always consult with your vet before giving your pet CBD, especially if they’re taking medication.
