CBD for Pets and large animals
Tinctures – unflavored and designed with pets in mind
Tinctures, i.e. CBD oil, is used to provide relief for deep issues.
Mesa Lavender Farms, PETS Unflavored CBD Tinctures use USDA organic MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil from coconuts as their carrier oil. MCT oil boosts metabolism and increases mental clarity. MCT may even benefit heart health, obesity prevention, and brain health. We do not use hemp oil in these formulations due to their potential for contamination with pesticide residues, heavy metals, and microbes. Mesa Lavender Farms CBD tinctures come in the one-ounce dropper bottle (600 mg of CBD) and a two-ounce dropper bottle (1200 mg of CBD).
Cannabidiol– CBD – is a cannabis compound with many benefits derived from Industrial Hemp. The distillate used in our full-spectrum CBD formulation contains a small amount of THC (0.06%). Our 100% CBD only tincture contains no THC or other cannabinoid other than CBD. CBD is known to help relieve pain, it’s an anti-inflammatory, and it is also an anti-anxiety, thus the reason for formulating a products specifically for pets and large animals. Mesa Lavender Farms is dedicated to both our human and animal friends.
Each drop of tincture provides 1 mg of CBD. Each inch of the dropper contains approximately 22 drops or 22 mg of CBD. Working the drops into the gums and tongue facilitates faster and more effective results. Some animals, however, don’t react kindly when messing with your mouth, so adding the drops to their treats or food is an option. When in doubt on the dosage you should consult with your doctor or veterinarian.
Tinctures are best taken orally. instead of being added to food. When swallowed directly, CBD can take several hours to move through the body to provide relief from arthritis and other ailments. Dividing the recommended amount needed into several applications has been found to be more effective than taking the full dose all at one time.
