Our pets, just like ourselves, have so much to gain from a regular dose of cannabis oil. Hemp has many benefits for our furry friends so consider trying some today and getting your dog or cats Endocannabinoid System activated and running for better health.
What is the Endocannabinoid system?
The Endocannabinoid system is an entire biological system within humans, animals and even plants themselves! Our body naturally produces small amounts of cannabinoids known as endocannabinoids. CBD is one of over 100 phytocannabinoids, all found within the cannabis sativa L plant or the hemp plant. Cannabinoids work by interacting with our CB1 and CB2 receptors that make up our Endocannabinoid System. Your pet has an Endocannabinoid System just like you. Dogs actually have more cannabinoid receptors in their ECS than us humans making them even more prone to relief from CBD products.
What are the advantages of CBD for dogs?
To answer the questions let’s first talk about the known disadvantages. The only real disadvantage is that not enough studies have been done on cannabinoids and their effects on our pets. With that said, CBD has been shown to be safe for dogs and cats. Pet owners everywhere are using CBD for joint inflammation, anxiety, stress and daily relief from pain for older pets. Let’s dig deeper into how these can help.
Does CBD oil help with dogs arthritis?
CBD has been shown to have major potential when dealing with joint pain caused by inflammation much like that of arthritis. CBD and its cannabinoid counterparts are really good at attacking inflammation. Providing relief from inflammation is one of the main functions of our Endocannabinoid System. Inflammation is typically due to an imbalance somewhere within our bodies. Our ECS is responsible for providing much needed balance.
Will CBD oil help my dog's anxiety?
We have seen great relief from anxiety with our CBD dog treats. Anxiety is characterized as a neurological condition in which your pet can suffer from tremors or panic attacks that cause them to lose control of their bowels. Incessant whimpering is also a sign of anxiety in your pets. We recommend talking to your veterinarian about whether CBD would be a good fit to help with the anxiousness your pet deals with!

It has shown to help aid in dental health, providing skin benefits by keeping your pets fur soft and silky smooth as well as moisturizing their skin. MCT oil has also shown to help aid in digestion.

How do I give my dog or cat CBD?
When using a CBD oil tincture for dogs and cats you have a few options on how to give it to your pet.
-Some pets really enjoy the taste of the cannabis tincture and will take their dose directly from the tincture dropper or lap it up from their food bowl.
-If your pet does not seem to be keen on lapping up the oils substance out of their food bowl alone, you can try and mix it into their food, adding it onto a dog bone, mixing in peanut butter, or essentially any other food you may give your dog.
CBD dog treats, are another great way to give your pet a dose of CBD. Our CBD soft chew dog treats are a fan favorite among our four legged customers. Each treat has 2mg of CBD and beef flavored sure to make your pup go wild. We recommend 1 treat per 20 pounds of weight.

When starting a new natural health supplement it is always best to start low and slow. Animals can be just as sensitive to new substances in their digestive tract. It’s always best to begin with a low dose of CBD and slowly work your way increasing if needed until you reach an optimal dose for your four legged family member. We recommend starting with 1mg per 10 pounds of body weight. Check out these images below to see how much is in each tincture bottle.
