Guide to CBD Dog Treats

Your canine companion relies on you for their health and happiness. When you provide for their physical and emotional well-being, you are likely rewarded with endearing displays of affection. Many people believe they can see the love and devotion expressed in their dog’s eyes.

Those expressive eyes can also let you know when your beloved pet is feeling stressed or uncomfortable. It’s easy to see that our devoted furry family members develop the same physical and emotional distress as we do. That’s why so many people who care for a tail-wagging companion are turning to the pet-friendly potential health and wellness benefits of hemp-derived CBD.

 

Is CBD Safe for My Dog? 

Unlike some plant extracts, the CBD derived from industrial hemp is not toxic to animals. While you and your pet can both safely use CBD, it is best not to share your personal supply. Your dog’s digestive processes are not the same as yours. That’s why it’s best your dog or cat uses hemp oil products specifically formulated for pets.

 

Hemp Oil: The Key Ingredient in CBD Dog Treats 

Just a few clicks of your keyboard will likely direct your attention to a vast assortment of CBD-enhanced dog treats. When a pet product specifies that it contains CBD, that means the product is made with hemp oil, the oil extracted from the stalks and stems of hemp plants.

It’s the non-psychoactive hemp extract that contains cannabidiol (CBD). When dog treats contain CBD, that single treat provides a significant number of potential health and wellness benefits. While you do have the option of selecting pre-packaged CBD dog treats, a significant number of people prefer adding CBD pet tinctures to their dog’s favorite food or the treats their furry friend already enjoys.

 

Potential Benefits of CBD for Dogs 

CBD works for your pets the same way it works for you. CBD mimics the messengers and influences the receptors of the endocannabinoid system, the regulatory system that influences every essential bodily function.

Hemp extract is safe and natural and provides benefits far beyond its reported ability to alleviate a significant number of symptoms. Your dog does not need to be experiencing troubling symptoms to benefit from the health and wellness potential of hemp-derived CBD.

How to Give CBD to Your Dog 

Some people rely on CBD-infused dog treats to help their pets experience the many potential benefits of CBD. It’s important to realize that there are a significant number of product manufacturers using low-grade hemp oil for pet products. For example, depending on the temperature used to create the treats, there may be too little CBD in the snacks to be of any value.

That’s why so many pet lovers and CBD researchers like Ian Pedersen1 recommend using CBD pet tinctures. Pet tinctures allow pet lovers more say in the purity and potency in the products they give to their faithful companions. Plus, CBD pet tinctures are considerably more versatile. Using a CBD pet tincture is easy. Consider the following suggestions:

 

  • Directly  

    The flavors in CBD dog treats are not selected to promote health, but to appeal to dog owners. Many of the additional flavors and other ingredients could interfere with bioavailability. Many dogs enjoy the flavor of natural, unflavored hemp oil. Simply placing a few drops of a CBD pet tincture directly into your dog’s mouth is an easy way to ensure consistent dosing. CBD pet tinctures can also be applied topically to potentially calm skin irritation and aching joints.

 

  • In Food 

    CBD pet tinctures can be added directly to dry or moist food. Some people prefer infusing their own treats by placing a few drops of CBD oil on their usual brand. For dogs who adore peanut butter, blending a dose of CBD with the sticky treat is also a popular option.

 

  • In Water

    For dogs who resist having drops placed directly in their mouth, adding CBD to drinking water is a simple way to provide a dose of CBD. Adding CBD to water is also beneficial to pet owners who are concerned about giving an overweight dog too many extra treats.

 

The Best CBD Products for Dogs 

Hemp plants absorb contaminants and potential toxins from the soil. That’s why it’s so important to verify the potency and purity of the products you select for your four-legged friend. Look for CBD companies willing to verify the purity and potency of their products by providing access to batch test results.

Providing verifiable evidence of product purity and potency is just one of the many reasons pet owners trust CBDistillery’s CBD Pet tinctures. Consider the following options:

 

  • 150 mg 30 ml CBD Pet Tincture

    CBD pet tinctures are formulated with hemp oil extracted from the stems and stalks of the plant. The hemp oil is then blended with cold-pressed hemp seed oil to best suit your dog’s digestive system. Each dropper (1 ml) of our 150 mg 30 ml Pet Tincture contains 5 mg of CBD.

 

  • 600 mg 30 ml CBD Pet Tincture 

    When you select CBDistillery’s 600 mg 30ml CBD Pet Tincture, you will need to use less product per dose. Since there is four times more CBD in the bottle, a 600 mg tincture lasts much longer. Each ml dropper contains 20 mg of CBD, 1 mg of CBD per drop.

  • Mans Best Friend CBD Oil Pack 

    CBDistillery’s Man’s Best Friend CBD Oil Pack is an ideal way to experience the health and wellness potential of CBD when you and your tail-wagging sidekick could both benefit from the numerous health and wellness benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions About CBD for Dogs 

Since CBD is sourced from industrial hemp, a member of the cannabis species, some pet lovers are initially hesitant to give their dogs CBD. Most have a significant number of questions. Here’s a look at some of the most common questions about CBD products for dogs.

 

Will CBD Dog Treats Get My Dog High?

Your dog will not get high from hemp-derived CBD products. Hemp-derived CBD does not contain enough THC (0.3 percent) to be of any consequence. Your dog cannot get high from hemp, even if they consume a large amount of hemp oil.

 

Do I need to talk to my veterinarian? 

Discuss your plans with your dog’s veterinarian before including CBD supplements in their diet. If your dog is currently taking medications please note that CBD can interact with some medications, so it is best to get your veterinarian’s approval.

 

Can Humans Eat CBD Dog Treats?

Like any other food made for dogs, you could likely eat CBD dog treats, but you may not care for the flavor. There are a significant number of products containing hemp-derived CBD that are much more palatable. If you are looking for a tasty way to treat yourself, consider CBD gummies or mixing a CBD tincture with your favorite foods or beverages.

 

How Long Does CBD take to Work?

Every dog’s chemistry is different. While the effects of CBD tinctures can commonly be felt within two hours, it may take a bit of experimentation to find the best dosage of CBD for your furry friend. If you do not see the effects you are looking for, consider increasing the number of mg per dose every few days. Eventually, you will find the right dosage for your faithful friend.
