Why CBG for Cats?
While CBG is still relatively new to the hemp supplement market, it has quickly become known for its ability to provide support to both cats and dogs–without the sleepy effect CBD sometimes initiates. CBG, or cannabigerol, is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. Here at Primal, we use CBG exclusively in our feline supplements due to the unique benefits, including urinary support, CBG may offer cats.
What is CBG?
CBG is sometimes called the “mother of cannabinoids'' as it is the chemical precursor to CBD, THC, CBC, and other cannabinoids. CBG does not produce a “high”. Cannabinoids, including CBG, are naturally occurring compounds from the cannabis plant which work by being processed by the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS promotes homeostasis, or balance, in animal bodies.
How Can CBG Benefit Cats?
In addition to its many uses, studies indicate CBG has the following benefits:
- Promotes a sense of relaxation and cognitive function without drowsiness
- Supports urinary health
- Offers immune support
- Helps maintain joint mobility
CBG & Feline Urinary Health
Feline urinary health issues are unfortunately common. While research is still ongoing, it’s been confirmed that the bladder has a high concentration of cannabinoid receptors. Evidence suggests that CBG has the ability to reduce bladder spasms and shows potential to regulate inflammatory response. By improving inflammatory response and regulating urinary system muscle movement, CBG may help cats and other pets with bladder dysfunction. In cases of pets who urinate frequently or mark, CBG supplements are an appropriate option to try.
