Q&A session with Stephen Cital, RVT, SRA, RLAT, VCCS, CVPP, VTS- LAM (Res. Anesthesia) Leading expert in medicinal Hemp CBD ElleVance Sciences Ltd | www.ElleVanceSciences.com
Stephen, I’m just wondering what types of things is CBD being used for in the US for cats?
Similarly to dogs, we see a big interest in using these types of products for pain conditions, whether it’s acute or chronic. I think we see really good efficacy when it comes to arthritis and cat. So, if you have an older cat, maybe an overweight cat at home, certainly a trimming down that cat would be helpful. But maybe starting a CBD CBDA product, will get you to see them jump on the furniture again, to see them jump on the counter again. Maybe we don’t necessarily want that behavior, but it’s a good indication of health, for your older cat for sure. And then with all of us being trapped at home, you know, cats can be fairly solitary. They like a routine, they like their quiet time. So with you being in their space all the time, maybe they have an increased level of stress with you being home all the time, especially kids. If the kid is playing with the cat all the time. So, I think right now is a really good time, if your cat seems to have a change in their behavior, it seems a little more freaked out than normal, to start these types of products.
