What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?

CBD is the new “high” in the consumer products market today. From pain to anxiety, skin care to your diet, it is a component of almost every other product. You probably are one of the consumers of CBD. It is not only a drug anymore. Your morning latte may have CBD in it. Your friend may have treated her skin with a CBD facial. And perhaps, the lotion you apply on the skin also contains CBD oil.

It would be safer to say that CBD is “trending.”  Your anxious colleague, your girlfriend, who is conscious of her beauty, or your mother suffering from severe joint pain or stiffness, all may have been using CBD in one form or the other.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD, as you know it, is a chemical derived from marijuana and hemp plants. It won’t make you “high” as it does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) –the psychoactive element present in marijuana. CBD is just one of the many cannabinoids the cannabis family produces. Isn’t it amazing that relief for your anxiety is here without having any strong effect on your cognitive brain activity?

The basic CBD formulation is oil, but once you go out to buy one for your seizure, you may find several CBD-infused products. You may be interested in purchasing an extract, in vaporized-liquid form, or may intake an oil-infused capsule. Apart from these, other CBD-infused products –such as beauty, beverages, food products, and pet products –are also gaining popularity.

How Does CBD Help Pets?

CBD is a stress reliever. CBD consumption may address your anxiety issues. It is a possible comfort to your all illnesses. If you are suffering from insomnia, and you stay awake whole night counting sheep, CBD may help you.

Some people with epilepsy and cancer patients are also turning to CBD. It may not cure the disease but is likely to provide relief from the pain and reduces seizures. The US Food and Drug Administration has approved Epidiolex – the first-ever cannabidiol –to be used as an oral solution for two rare epileptic seizures.

If you have a long history of struggling with aches, CBD may be an option for you. A study suggests that CBD can help inhibit inflammatory and neuropathic pain. CBD also helps people struggling with psychotic issues affected by schizophrenia.

CBD –Your Pet’s New Treat

While all your family members may be using CBD to address multiple issues, you may use it for the four-legged member of the family too. Yes, we are talking about your pet. There is no prize to guess how much we love our pets – Americans spend around $72 billion each year on pets.

Your pet –be it a cat or dog – have the same needs as yours; he also goes through pain, anxiety, seizures, and chronic pain. Since you love your dog like your child, you won’t mind spending on his health.  There are many treatments available for the pets, including the CBD pet products.

CBD pet products have hit the market with a boom. Only in 2018, there was a sky-rocketing sale of CBD pet products –reaching $32 million from $8 million. The cannabis-centered research firm has estimated that in the US alone, the CBD pet product market could reach the mark of $1.16 billion by 2022.

Your dog may not like to have an oil-infused capsule or oil sprinkled over his meal. Your cat may be longing for your attention or a little flattering and a fancy meal. You can provide your pet fruit-flavored treats made with CBD, or if your dog is a fish lover, you will easily find a chicken-flavored CBD oil for him.  You may treat your pet with semi-moist meatballs with CBD added to them.

Bottom Line

You have found the CBD product that suits you, but you are confused in deciding for your pet, then Green Mountain Animal in NYC is the right place for you. We cater to all the needs of your pet and provide quality and safe animal health products and treats. Contact us today for the unique customized animal products.

What animal products do contract manufacturers produce?

Contract manufacturing refers to the outsourcing to a third party company to manufacture products from their portfolio that your company once prepared. Animal product contract manufacturing focuses on producing and selling good quality dietary supplements and other health products specifically for animals.

Animal Products

Supplements of all kinds come in different shapes to attract animals’ attention. Chewy gums, powder, pills, gels all loved foods for animals. These supplements contain important nutrients essential for animal growth and maintenance. These nutrients include, vitamins, fatty acids, probiotics and many others. Sometimes your pet is not getting the right nutrients necessary for their health in correct amounts from the food they consume. That’s when these supplements strike in. These chews are made out of high quality ingredients and nutrient contents are carefully added.

Other than dietary supplements, contract manufacturers produce healthy pet food according to their age.  For example, special gluten free feed specifically for adult dogs. This feed is a healthy blend of chicken and rice. It has protein content and fatty acids as well. The fatty acids help protect their skin from allergies and make their coats healthier. Just like humans, dogs also tend to have skin issues when they age. This feed is best for tackling such issues.

Herbal gummies are also a common item. These gummies are a blend of high quality ingredients and prevent allergies. Gummies containing cranberry help target bladder issues and inflammation in pets. Gummies can be made in sweet candies or savory vitamins. Dental chews are also a great option for strong gums. They are gluten and preservative free.

Another great dog food option by manufactures is a healthy gluten free combination of salmon and rice. This keeps them active throughout the day. Also, there is a vast variety of wet food options available as well. This is typically packed in cans with proper seals in order to keep them fresh. They have different variants and flavors mostly in jelly. For instance, chicken in jelly or salmon in jelly. The jelly content keeps the chicken or salmon soft and easy to chew. These mixtures are rich in Vitamin A and are mostly a food for cats.

Canned food options for dogs are also quite common. These are a delight for dogs and they look forward to their meal times because they find them very delicious. There are chunks of meat swimming in thick and filling gravy in each can. These meals make digestion easy and also make their coats healthier. However, it is important to note that over eating of canned food can cause diarrhea and can be dangerous. So, it is best to carefully read the instructions behind the can before feeding them. The serving amount to be given is usually in the instructions.

Furthermore, disinfectant sprays for pets are also quite popular these days. These sprays target and kill bacteria almost instantly. They prevent pets from getting skin infections and ticks. Ticks are very common. Most cats suffer from ticks and the irritation they cause. Anti bacterial sprays are very effective in this regard.
