Is CBD For Your Pet?

Oct 29, 2021

Is CBD right for your pet? Here are the facts.

By now, you may have heard about the many health & wellness benefits of CBD hemp oil.  CBD and the other naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the hemp plant have been shown to provide people with relief for a variety of wellness concerns, but did you also know that CBD is good for your dogs, cats and other household pets?

CBD for your Pet

More and more people are discovering the myriad benefits of sharing pure CBD hemp oil with their four legged family members.  How exactly does CBD work for your pet?  The same way it works for you. CBD activates receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Did you know, all mammals have an ECS?

The ECS plays a role in nearly every physiological system in you and your pet’s body.  Although the ECS affects a wide variety of biological processes, many experts believe its overall function is to regulate homeostasis.  It is for this reason that thousands of pet owners are using CBD. It is helping them to manage a broad spectrum of health and behavioral issues affecting their pets.  A few of the reported benefits of giving pure CBD hemp oil to your pet include: assisting with mobility concerns, helping them to stay calm in scary situations, aiding in physical recovery from a long day of fetch or chasing string amongst other benefits.

More than just CBD for your pet

Receptra Naturals also includes MCT oil in our pet products.  This combination of MCT oil and full-plant hemp extract offers an excellent source of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for your pets.  These are essential fatty acids, meaning your dog or cat cannot produce them naturally and must obtain from other sources.  A good balance of these fatty acids is critical for the health & wellness of your pet.  According to a recent article in, “After years of research, Purina experts have discovered that fatty acids derived from MCT oil can be used as an energy source for the brain.” MCT oil also promotes bioavailability of the CBD oil, allowing more of it to be used by the body.

Whether your pet has a specific wellness need or you simply want to improve their overall health and wellness, give them the quality of life they deserve with CBD.
