CBD Oil for Cats with Anxiety
There are so many situations that can cause our beloved kitties to be nervous: moving to a new home, adjusting to new cats or people in the house, traveling, or trips to the vet or groomer. CBD (cannabidiol) can be an effective and natural solution to minimize anxiety for cats without harmful side effects. CBD oil for cats can be used situationally for temporary relief or on a longer-term basis for cats with chronic anxiety. If your cat is in pain, the CBD oil can do double-duty, helping them feel more comfortable which can also keep them calmer.
Will CBD oil make your cat high?
While the cannabinoids THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties) and CBD are in both marijuana and hemp, there are very significant differences between the industrial hemp plant from which pet CBD oil is extracted and marijuana. Marijuana contains high levels of THC but far less CBD, while hemp is a rich source of CBD but has almost no THC. It’s important to note that THC can be toxic to pets, but CBD extracted from industrial hemp is safe legal in all states.
The most important differentiation is that hemp CBD offers all the benefits without the THC, so your cat won’t get high–instead, they’ll experience a level of mild relaxation.
What’s the difference between CBD oil and hemp oil?
CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same things, especially for calming purposes. Though they’re from the same Sativa hemp plant and neither product is psychoactive, hemp oil is made from pressed hemp seeds, which do not contain CBD. CBD oil is extracted from hemp flowers, leaves, and stalks, which are rich in the compound. To treat your cat’s anxiety, choose products that clearly state they contain a measured amount of CBD, not hemp oil.
How do you choose the best CBD oil for cats?
Product labeling and advertising can be confusing, so you’ll want to shop carefully to find the best hemp CBD for your cat. Find a product that clearly states the amount of CBD it contains, and make sure that it’s free of heavy metals and pesticides. The manufacturer should have the lab test results readily available for review.
What’s the best way to give a cat CBD?
CBD can help cats with anxiety to feel calmer
We all know that our kitties can be averse to supplements! Fortunately, there are a number of options to choose from. One of the most popular CBDs for cats is a bottled oil that comes with a measured dropper to make it easy to dispense the desired dose. If your cat is not picky, you may want to choose full-spectrum CBD oil with terpenes, which are beneficial, natural compounds that can boost effectiveness. However, full-spectrum CBD can have a bit of a grassy taste that some cats find off-putting. For finicky cats, consider adding a flavorless CBD oil isolate to food or a treat. Most cats will take the flavorless CBD oil readily when added to food or a favorite treat.
An alternative to bottled CBD oil is Coconut Oil with CBD. This is a wonderfully versatile product. It can be applied to the bare skin inside a cat’s ears to be absorbed transdermally or dabbed on paws for cats to lick off. It can be added to food or treats for cats who enjoy the mild coconut flavor.
How much CBD should you give your cat for anxiety?
You may need to do some experimenting to find the right dose because every cat and every situation is different. The typical recommendation is 1–5 mg for a typical 10-pound cat, but there is no known toxicity level.
Try a dose in the middle of the recommended range and watch for calming effects that should occur within an hour. If not, you may want to give more CBD to total up to the upper dosing recommendation. Once you’ve found the right dose, your cat will seem calmer but not lethargic.
Can I give my cat CBD along with other medications?
Make sure to check with your veterinarian before using CBD oil if you’re giving your cat prescription medications. Holistic and integrative vets are often familiar with the benefits of CBD and will be easily able to answer your questions.
People who are looking for drug-free treatments for their cats’ anxiety may find that CBD can be the natural solution for a happier, calmer kitty.

An Easier Way To Give Your Cat CBD
CBD is the biggest trend in pet health right now – and it’s proving to be helping many pets with various ailments across the globe. Even with the many reported benefits of CBD, administering it to your cat can sometimes get stressful… for her and you. Why? Because most cats just don’t like to be tampered with.
Now… maybe your reading this and saying, “what do you mean? I just add it to my cat’s food.” Well, we recently partnered with some experts in CBD for pets and learned that this method of application just isn’t the most effective.
As we learned from the fine folks with CBD Cat Health, in order to get the best results from a quality CBD product, it must be bioavailable to the body. This just means that the medicinal tincture should be able to be used by the body.
When we put CBD into our cats food, it has to be processed through the digestive system before it can do its job. In this digestive process, much of the CBD potency is lost and the body isn’t able to efficiently use it. This results in needing a higher required dose (and often rejection of the food), unnecessary product (and money) is wasted and the desired results of the CBD tincture are often slowed or not attained. As cat parents, we know how frustrating this can be – especially when we’re trying hard to help our cats with an issue that CBD can help. So what can we do?
How To Give Your Cat CBD
There are two most effective ways to administer CBD to your cats: Directly on their gums or rubbed into their ears. These two areas are where the CBD is most easily absorbed into the blood stream.
However – administering the CBD in either of the above ways can present some challenges. Most of our cats will not allow us easy access their mouths – and forcing this method can cause some cats to lash out. The ear, therefore, can be an easier option… for some. Three of our cats will let us apply CBD in their ears, but the other 2 will have nothing to do with it. Also, because it’s such a sensitive area, some kitties will have a skin sensitivity in the ear.
Good news is that there’s an easier way!
The paw pads of our kitties are another area of the body where cats can quickly absorb CBD… or anything for that matter. This is why we encourage natural – not using chemical – floor and counter cleaners in your home. Our kitties paw pads contain an abundance of blood vessels – similar to those found in the ears and gums – making this a great option for effectively administering CBD.
We recommend letting our kitties get used to us rubbing/touching their paws. Most cats that are already used to having their nails clipped won’t mind this at all – but others may take a little patience. The good news is this the application method is simply the easiest – with out loosing the effectiveness of the CBD.
Simply rub the tincture on the pads of their paws and watch it work it’s magic!
