Terpenes in CBD Oil for Pets

What Are These Things Called Terpenes?

Terpenes are beautiful smelling, aromatic compounds found all throughout nature. That fantastic smell you get whilst walking through a pine forest is all thanks to the terpene pinene found within the trees. The fresh scent of orange peel as you break into a citrus fruit is caused by terpenes within the rind. The smallest and most volatile terpenes that exist are known as monoterpenes. Larger and less volatile terpenes are known as sesquiterpenes.

In the cannabis plant, these molecules are produced as secondary metabolites, meaning they are organic compounds that are not directly involved in the normal growth, development, or reproduction of the plant. Instead, they serve to protect plants against numerous threats such as insect predators and high temperatures.

Cannabinoids and Terpenes are created via the same biosynthetic pathway, which takes place within the trichomes, tiny mushroom-shaped glands that inhabit surfaces on the buds and leaves. Terpenes can comprise around 10% of the resin secreted by trichomes. If you were to touch it with your fingers it would leave a smell on them.

Terpenes are highly valued within both the recreational and medicinal cannabis markets. Many strains are bred to express certain terpene profiles to provide distinct flavours, scents, and effects. It’s also been discovered that terpenes and cannabinoids work together to enhance physiological actions. For example, the terpene limonene has been shown to synergise with CBD to enhance the cannabinoid’s anxiolytic properties, whereas myrcene has been shown to boost the pain-killing properties of CBD.


So, if terpenes are therapeutic in their own right and can even synergise with CBD, why are they not placed within Cibapet products? Well, there is good reason for this. Anybody who has ever used essential oils can attest to the fact that terpene extracts are extremely pungent. It just so happens that the potency of some terpenes, such as pinene and myrcene, is enough to put pets off. This makes a lot of sense when looking at the role of terpenes as protective secondary metabolites. They are designed to turn away potential predators.

Considering that common pets such as dogs and cats have greatly enhanced senses of smell, they may be extra sensitive to the aromas of chemicals that are already potent to us. The taste of terpenes is also believed to be quite unpleasant to pets, which could be an issue when trying to administer CBD to them on a daily basis.


Cibapet products have been specifically formulated to be as easy as possible to administer to pets. Everything from route of administration to additional supportive ingredients has been optimised for the wellbeing of your furry friends. Some pet owners may have just discovered CBD and are wondering what the positive effects are. Many scientific studies orientated around CBD have been conducted on animal models, with a wealth of promising results.

CBD is 1 of over 100 cannabinoids so far identified within cannabis/hemp plants. Cannabinoids such as CBD achieve many of their impressive effects by interacting with a physiological system within the body of all mammals—the endocannabinoid system. CBD influences the CB1 and CB2 receptors that comprise this system, as well as other sites such as serotonin receptors.

Through this mechanism of action, CBD has been shown to exhibit anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and antioxidant effects. These effects are suggested to not only be beneficial to human populations, but other mammals as well!

Cibapet offers 2 primary ways of administering CBD to pets. The first is a CBD oil available in a 4% CBD concentration. This oil is extremely easy to dose and can simply be squirted directly into your pet’s mouth, or placed on top of a treat. A dosage of 2–3 drops per 10kg of bodyweight up to 3 times per day is recommended for dogs. Cats can receive a maximum dose of 2 drops of oil 2–3 times per day. Puppies and kittens are given half an adult dose, up to 2 times per day.

Cibapet CBD pastilles are another superb way to dose pets with the cannabinoid. These health-boosting pastilles are also infused with essentials vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, K3, B6, as well as zinc and iron. 2 pastilles can be given per 10kg of body weight for dogs, with a maximum of 6 per day for large dogs. Cats can receive up to 2 pastilles per day. Puppies and kittens receive half an adult dosage.



Unique Uses for CBD

Unique Uses for CBD: Topicals, Pet Care, Other Methods

I would like to think that the most common CBD product known is the edible, or maybe even the sublingual oils (sometimes called a tincture). But besides oils and gummies, there are a vast array of CBD (and other cannabinoids) products out there for some interesting uses.

One of my favorites would be CBD topicals (creams, body oils, lotions, soaps, bath bombs etc). Obviously, CBD creams or salves would be put directly onto the skin to relieve pain. These same “pain” products can be used as well for skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema, but there are still other uses for CBD Topicals.

Hand Creams infused with CBD are great for people who work outdoors, or with chemicals that make their hands dry and/or itchy. These also work well on the soles of the feet. There are even hand creams that have tea tree oil as an agent to fight off bacteria. 

Pocket Sized CBD Rollers are tiny little topical dispensers fit with a roller ball for easy usage. These not only pack a large amount of CBD into a tiny bottle, but mix it with herbs and flowers to influence your body and mind to decompress.The tiny roller has completely blown me away by preventing or lessening my headaches when it is rubbed around the hairline and directly onto the temples.

CBD Massage Oils are another great topical option, along with transdermal patches, bath bombs, and lubricants. CBD applied to the skin can start working right away. I have noticed a tremendous difference when applying for pain (sore/strained muscle, bruises, gout, arthritis, swelling, etc.) and even noticed the discoloration of bruises seem to rapidly heal, faster than usual.

CBD has also been known to protect the color of tattoos AND the healing process. There are special CBD salves made specifically for tattoos. The CBD will also help with the pain and tenderness of the skin around the tattoo. CBD tattoo cream can also be used on small cuts, scrapes, and burns.

So enough about topicals for now; another CBD route is FOR YOUR FUR BABIES! It’s estimated that 78 million dogs and 85.8 million cats are owned in the United States, and it is obvious how conscious these little critters are!! CBD can help your dog, cat, horse, goat, fox, or any animal with a vertebrate. These animals can have nearly the same issues that humans have: from anxiety and pain to more serious issues like epilepsy. 

CBD for animals can be in the form of an edible (dog treat, peanut butter etc), sublingual oil, or even topical. Topicals are great for skin conditions, burns, scars, and much more! I even had a customer tell me that they would rub the CBD Pet Salve on their dogs ears (because of all the tiny veins in their ears) which may deliver CBD quickly into the bloodstream as it absorbs into the skin. You can use the CBD pet salve for their paws for allergies or hot spots.

CBD dog treats are usually the more common purchase because some animals do not like the flavor (but some DO) and when you have an animal with a serious condition, a stronger, more potent oil is probably your best bet. These powerful oils for your pets are used for conditions like epilepsy, serious pain symptoms (hip dysplasia, Intervertebral disc, etc.) any ailment which may make your pet not have an appetite, and much more. 

This is only scratching the surface of CBD and the thousands of options available. There seems to be a CBD product for everything and everyone, you just have to figure out which products you like best. Below is some of the products mentioned in this blog:

There’s been a lot of talk about how, and whether, cannabis can be used in place of antibiotics. Centuries of natural medicine traditions tell us ‘yes’ already, but now the Western medicine world is finally catching up. New research highlights how cannabis antibiotics are a likely and reasonable answer to the issue of disease-resistant bacteria.

If you haven’t tried delta-8 THC yet, then you’re using cannabis the old-fashioned way. Delta-8 provides a new way to use cannabis with less anxiety, and less psychoactive effects. This makes it the optimal form of THC for many people. Check it out to see for yourself. We’ve got all the best Delta-8 THC deals for you to get acquainted with this new form of cannabis medicine.

Let’s go back in time first

There are tons of natural medicine traditions that have existed on the planet through the history of man. Two of the more well-known, which are still in existence today, are Ayurvedic medicine out of India, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) out of China. In Ayurveda, medical cannabis was used since 1000 b.c., with one of the reasons being as an antibiotic. This included topical use for skin infections, as well as for ailments like tuberculosis. Imagine that, information was figured out 1000 years before Jesus was supposed to have walked the earth, and researchers of today are only now catching up? Perhaps we should look at history more often.

When it comes to Traditional Chinese Medicine and cannabis, there’s a striking lack of information published, and not because it doesn’t exist. While most sites cite the lack of translation to Western languages for the void in information, this explanation sounds suspect. This is a popular topic, it goes against logic to assume that no one has bothered to translate for the English speaking world.

1800 years, and that all parts of the plant were used. Some publications say that hemp has been cultivated in China for as many as 4000 years. Again, there seems to be a block in getting this information to the Western world. You can draw your own conclusions as to why.

Starting anywhere from 1000-4000 years ago, cannabis started being used in medical applications, which have been fully written about in detail throughout history. And one of those applications was using cannabis antibiotics. In today’s world of growing use and over-use of antibiotics, which has led to large and escalating problems with antibiotic resistance, it seems like paying a little more attention to what was gleaned from history, might be exactly what we need.

Western medicine finally catching up

It’s almost funny to think that we’ve technically had this information for thousands of years, and yet most people are wholly unaware, because they aren’t made aware, by the medical world. And instead of paying attention to history, the Western medicine world constantly tries to rewrite it, except that this most recent rewriting only goes to back up what natural medicine has been saying all this time: cannabis can be used in place of antibiotics.

How did Western medicine finally catch up? Through a study showing that CBD can kill gram-negative bacteria. Gram-negative bacteria are bacteria strains most relevant to antibiotic resistance. They are identified – and separated from gram-positive bacteria – by the composition of the inner cell membrane and the cell wall, which are pushed together between an inner membrane and an outer membrane.

The outer membrane is not seen in gram-positive bacteria, and it is this outer membrane that keeps antibiotics from penetrating. Another issue with gram-negative bacteria and antibiotics is that, even if the antibiotics penetrate the cell, the bacteria can expel these antibiotics through an internal pump system, making it that much harder to eradicate them. The two different types of bacteria can be told apart from each other using the Gram stain test. Gram-negative bacteria will not retain the color from the stain test.

What does antibiotic resistance mean?

issues in particular that led to this current crisis. One is the general overuse of antibiotics, which can be seen in the over-prescription of them when not really necessary, as well as the prescription for antibiotics when the culprit is not bacterial – sometimes for viral infections and other issues that do not require, nor benefit from, antibiotics. The other main issue is the implementation of antibiotics in our food supply. This pertains primarily to animal products, which has meant a massive intake of antibiotics in farm animals, This is generally associated with large corporations that run factory farms to raise animals, where the animals are kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions.

What this leads to is a change in the bacterium which allows it to resist the antibiotic, effectively making the antibiotic useless. When thinking of large-scale, deadly, and/or fast-spreading diseases, this creates a general inability to control it spreading, or to help those who have been infected. At least by Western medicine standards. This part is important, as measures have been taken for centuries – and today – that do not require antibiotics. Luckily now, with new research to back it up for those who don’t trust or know their history, it seems to be accepted, or nearly accepted, within the medical community that CBD can be used to kill bacteria, even when it is resistant to antibiotics.

The research

In January of 2021, a study was released that investigated the antimicrobial abilities of cannabidiol, or CBD.  CBD is known as the primary non-psychoactive cannabinoid of the cannabis plant, and as such has been accepted more in medicine than its psychoactive counterpart THC. In this study, CBD was tested with both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Gram-positive bacteria are easier to treat as they don’t resist antibiotics as easily, and CBD was confirmed in the study to treat gram-positive bacteria.

When it comes to gram-negative bacteria, where significantly less research has been done, the study authors tested it against pathogens not tested with CBD before, like the following: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Clostridioides difficile. The study authors concluded that cannabidiol has “excellent activity against biofilms, little propensity to induce resistance, and topical in vivo efficacy.”

How does CBD do it? It is thought that the main mode of action is through the disruption of the outer membrane, the part that separates gram-positive from gram-negative bacteria, and which allows for the resistance of bacteria. CBD can actually break through biofilms of this kind, allowing entrance into the cell. This study marks the first time that CBD has been used to kill gram-negative bacteria subsets in a study, including a pathogen considered to be an urgent threat – Neisseria gonorrhoeae, known to most simply as gonorrhea. All of this indicates that CBD, itself, could create a new class of cannabis antibiotics.

biofilm  is a “community of micro-organisms irreversibly attached to a surface and encased in an EPS (extracellular polymeric substance), with increased resistance to host cellular and chemical responses.” It can be thought of like a very strong form of plastic wrap that a cell has covering it, which doesn’t allow for the penetration of medications. It acts as a barrier between the microbe and the world around, allowing it to grow without interference. Biofilms can be within the body (where they are substantially harder to deal with without hurting the human body), or outside it on surfaces like medical equipment, pipes, aquatic systems, and many other places. The ability for the bacteria to live in these places and go undisturbed, allows for the spread of them, which can be especially damaging in medical settings.

The question of why CBD doesn’t become resistant becomes a bigger discussion point. Essentially, plant compounds are very complicated, more so than antibiotics, which are very simple. The more complicated, the harder for microbes to get a handle on them. Plants used for medicine have secondary metabolites which make them even more complicated, and introduce alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, and terpenes, which add to the complexity, while often having their own antimicrobial properties.

If you’ll notice, I said ‘plants’, not ‘cannabis’, and that’s because cannabis is not even close to being the first plant to be established as capable of fighting biofilms. This can be seen in studies like this 2012 investigation into how a number of essential oils can influence biofilms of Staphylococcus aureus. The study found that the essential oils of cassia, red thyme and Peru balsam showed the best results for getting rid of Staphylococcus aureus biofilms, proving more effective than most antibiotics.

The study authors indicated that red thyme and cassia were not tested against MRSA biofilms at that point, but that the essential oils of tea tree, thyme, and peppermint had been, and had already shown to be effective against MRSA biofilms. Basically, the same thing being looked into now with cannabis, was already established with other plants at least eight years ago.

This study from 2019 – as another example – investigated these potentials in the essential oils of cinnamon, marjoram, and thyme, with cinnamon and thyme showing the best inhibitory results.


Watching Western medicine trying to catch up to Eastern medicine is kind of like watching paint dry, or grass grow. For those of us coming from the natural medicine standpoint, it’s a long, frustrating process, with a lot of mishaps, holdups, and misunderstandings. But luckily, things eventually get through, and now, thousands of years after it was established that cannabis antibiotics are effective, it looks like Western medicine is finally taking the bait.
