If you’ve read about what cannabis can do for your cats somewhere, then you need to know the answers to the questions below first, before focusing on growing cannabis 101.
What is CannaVet/Canna Companion?
This refers to the distinctive blend of cannabis sativa strains that is made to improve the medical blessings of the cannabis plant while lessening the “high-inducing” concentrations brought by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main ingredient of the plant.
Every capsule has a combination of phytocannabinoids, the primary group of compounds in the plant; terpenes, which aid in modulating the former; and flavonoids, which are potent anti-inflammatories found in various foods humans and pets consume.
Those capsules contain omega 3 & 6 fatty acids and vitamin B6 as well.
How can it help my cat?
Research shows that cannabis can:
- Improve appetite
- Help decrease the severity of dementia
- Serve as a neuroprotective agent minimizing seizure intensity and frequency
- Lessen nausea and cancer-associated symptoms
- Strengthen the immune system for conditions such as food allergies
- Control inflammation and chronic pain related to pancreatitis, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD)
- Reduce anxiety, increasing concentration during training sessions
- Decrease bronchial spasms in asthmatics
Canna Companion can be the answer to various conditions because cannabis naturally contains compounds that affect the endocannabinoid system. This system is the internal pathway found in mammals. Almost every tissue has receptors that respond to the cannabis components.
However, it’s not designed to be the only treatment. Canna Companion works best when it’s provided together with other treatments. It usually allows a reduction in medications which might have significant unpleasant side effects. To calm you down, here’s a fact: hemp has no known pessimistic relations with other supplements or medications.
Will my cat get high?
Your cat won’t get high from Canna Companion because it concentrates on the non-THC parts of the cannabis plant which seem to have the best advantage, without making your cat high like what human recreational users wish.
Is there a side effect?
Mild lethargy is the most common side effect, but it often subsides in three to four days. Softer stools are also a side effect, as well as frequent pooping.
Canna Companion makes use of the whole cannabis plant, and since hemp contains more fiber, this might also be an issue for sensitive cats. Usually, a lower dose resolves the fiber sensitivity case.
Some cats can become depressed and uncoordinated as well, which means they easily fall over.
In very few cats, vomiting and increased skin itchiness were also listed as side effects. Once these appear, the use of cannabis-based products should be stopped.
Is it legal?
CannaVet is unlike human medical cannabis. It’s actually a supplement which meets the present definition of hemp supplements under the United States federal law.
