Wondering If CBD Could Help Your Dog?
CBD Education Series
There’s nothing worse than seeing our furry friends in discomfort. Whether it’s of old age, genetics, trauma, or stress, our pets go through a lot. If you’ve been searching for natural ways to bring more ease, comfort & relief into your pet’s life, CBD might be what you’ve been looking for.
How Does CBD Work For Dogs?
CBD for pets is an all-natural supplement derived from Hemp. All animals have an endocannabinoid system, including dogs and their loving human owners.
CBD then interacts with the body’s CBD receptors to help regulate one’s nervous system, immune system, and supports the body’s overall state of balance & well-being.
Just like their loving human owners, dogs naturally produce CBD which may be vital to maintaining a healthy state of being. However, everyday stress, trauma, or genetics can cause the body to be deficient in cannabinoids. This deficiency can disrupt the endocannabinoid system’s ability to maintain a healthy state of balance, which can then cause a disturbance to your pet’s appetite, sleep, pain response, and mood.
CBD Isolate products don’t contain any THC, so your dog won’t experience any high when taking such products. Also, unlike many chemical pain-relievers which generaly havwe side-effects, CBD is 100% all-natural and also non-addictive so your dog won’t develop a dependency.

What to Consider Before Giving Your Dog CBD
It’s important to make sure the CBD you are using is all-natural, free of any artificial additions or preservatives & free of THC! CBD products are perfectly safe for your furry friend as long as they’re derived from the hemp variety of the cannabis plant. Products derived from the marijuana variety of cannabis, however, are NOT safe for animal consumption, as they may contain high levels of THC and can thus be toxic to animals.
If you decide to try CBD for your furry companion, slowly introduce it into your daily routine. Start with lower doses, you can always up the dose as you go along. Just be sure to closely monitor your dog’s behavior & well-being. Always be sure to consult your Vet before giving your dog anything!
Different Kinds of Pet Products
There are a variety of ways to give your dog their daily dose of CBD. Two common & easy ways are CBD pet oils & dog treats.
Oils can be dropped onto your dog’s tongue or better yet, mixed into their food. CBD-infused dog treats are an even easier way to ensure your dog is getting the dose they need as they’re pre-dosed.
