Do cats like cannabis products?
The answer is a resounding “maybe.”
There’s no denying that cats are one of the most popular pets in America. They make us laugh, they make us feel good, and they’re always there when we need them. But do they like cannabis products?
Well, maybe! After all, it seems like every day there’s a new cat video or meme that’s making its way around the internet. It’s clear that cats have made their mark on our lives in ways that go beyond just being adorable and fluffy—they’ve also become an integral part of the culture at large. From cute memes to heartwarming videos about shelter pets finding forever homes, it seems like cats have always been there for us when we need them most.
So what does this mean for cat owners who also use cannabis products? Well, it might mean that your furry friend doesn’t mind your pot habit—but only if it’s kept under control! Cats can’t tell you how they feel about things like this (I mean… they can’t talk), so it’s up to you to be responsible when it comes to using cannabis around your feline friend(s).

Some Cats Love CBD
You aren’t going to give your kitty a THC vape pen or something, but I’ve heard a lot of cats are down with CBD.
I mean, it’s not like I’m some kind of expert on feline wellness or anything—I just hang out with my cat all day and listen to him purr, which is basically the same as talking to me about how he feels about life. But when I asked him if he liked CBD, he went absolutely nuts for it.
“CBD? What’s that?” you might ask. Well, it stands for cannabidiol, and it’s an extract from the hemp plant that doesn’t get you high (but does help you relax). It’s also super healthy for your body and mind: CBD is used to treat anxiety, depression, inflammation and pain relief in humans, but studies have shown that it can work wonders on cats too!
So if your cat has been feeling… off lately—more stressed than usual, maybe—you might want to try giving them a small dose of CBD oil in their food or water (just one drop per day). It’s not going to solve all your problems overnight—but it could make a huge difference!
Your Cat Might Not Be a Fan Of CBD
Your cat might not be a fan of CBD.
If you’ve been thinking about giving your cat a boost with CBD, we have some bad news for you: Your kitty probably doesn’t care for it.
But don’t worry! There are plenty of other ways to help your cat feel better, from adding supplements to their diet to checking in on them more often.
Here’s why cats might not respond well to CBD:
-Cats are picky eaters, and they can sense when something is “off” in their food. If they don’t like the taste or texture of something, they’re likely to refuse it—even if it’s good for them.
-Your cat has a very sensitive sense of smell—they can tell when something isn’t how it should be by smelling it—and that sensitivity may make them wary of things they find unfamiliar or unnatural. It could also just be that they don’t like the flavor!
-Cats tend to be very independent animals who do things at their own pace and in their own way. They may not want any help from humans when it comes to feeling better!
So what can you do? Give it a try and see! Duh…
Do Vets Recommend Giving Your Cat CBD?
It’s a question you’ve probably asked yourself. After all, pets are our family members and we want to do everything we can to make sure they’re healthy and happy. But there are so many options out there—from prescription medications to natural supplements like CBD oil—that it can be hard to know what’s right for your cat.
Luckily, vets have been giving their opinions on the matter, and the general consensus seems to be that CBD can help your cat in several ways.
What Vets Say About CBD For Cats
1. It’s safe: When it comes to giving your cat CBD, vets say that it’s totally safe as long as you give it at the right dosage and frequency (usually once or twice per day). One vet even told me that his own cat has been taking CBD for years without any problems. So if you’re worried about your furry friend being harmed by ingesting this substance, don’t worry—it should be perfectly fine for them!
2. It helps with pain management: One of the most common reasons people give their cats medication is because they’re suffering from chronic pain or other health issues that are causing discomfort for them (like arthritis).
That being said, vets typically will not feel comfortable telling you to give your cat CBD because it’s still fairly new.
In Closing, Your Cat Might Love CBD Treats
For the last few weeks, we’ve been talking about CBD and how it can help your cat. But in case you missed any of our previous posts, here’s a quick recap:
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It’s one of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants and it has a ton of health benefits for cats. For example, CBD can help with arthritis pain and inflammation in cats who suffer from chronic diseases like diabetes or cancer. It can also be used to treat anxiety in cats who are nervous or anxious around new situations like getting groomed or meeting new people. Plus, CBD can even help with gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea by reducing spasms and decreasing inflammation!
But what if your cat isn’t ill? What if she’s just looking for some tasty treats? Luckily there are plenty of options out there! Give them a try!
