Here’s How CBD Can Help Your Pet.
Many Canadians are using CBD for pets. Why is this?
As it turns out, it’s not just humans that have cannabinoid receptors, but all animals. This means CBD has the same exact benefits for pets as it does for humans! So what are the benefits of CBD for pets?
In this guide, we will cover the benefits of CBD for ageing pets with pain and inflammation, and for cats and dogs suffering from stress, anxiety or sleep issues.
All-Natural & Effective Relief for Pets.
1) Safe & Effective
CBD is different from THC. CBD is non-psychoactive so it won’t get your pet high. Rather, CBD will simply help your pet relax and improve their quality of life.
2) Pain & Joint Relief
As they age, issues like arthritis, hip-dysplasia & general pain or inflammation are all too common for pets. Such chronic issues can drastically impact your pet’s well-being and transform them from that happy bouncy love-ball to a pet that is quietly suffering in great pain.
Fortunately, CBD has been shown to have numerous benefits for pets for relieving inflammation, pain, and arthritis.
Overall, CBD for pets could be a safe, effective and natural way to relieve your pet’s pain and inflammation.
3) Soothing Relief for Anxious/Stressed Pets
CBD can also help your pet relax in stressful situations. Going to the vet for a regular checkup or giving them that super necessary bath? Not only can CBD for pets be useful for them, but it can help you to calm down and manage a stressed out pet.
CBD has been shown to be an effective source of relief for anxiety in people, it has the same benefits for calming and soothing your pet.
4) Better Sleep for Pets
Chronic pain, environmental stress and anxiety can all have negative impacts on your pet’s ability to sleep.
As with people, CBD can also help your Furry Friends with getting to sleep
In 2013, one study showed that CBD significantly increased the total sleep times for pets who consume 10 to 40 mg per kilogram of CBD.
If your pet is struggling with severe pain and has trouble sleeping, larger doses of CBD could be an effective and natural way to help them sleep better.
“How Much CBD Does My Pet Need?”
Recommended Dose for Pets:
Generally, pets should have 1-5mg per 10lbs depending on their ailment. If your pet is not responding with lower doses, we recommend a maximum of 8mg per 10lbs. Pets need much less than humans so start small!
Severity of Pain
CBD for Pets Dosage
Anxiety & Mild Pain
1 mg per 10lbs
Pain, Sleep & Anxiety
3 mg per 10lbs
5 mg per 10lbs

Note: These amounts are a general starting point. Every dog responds differently to CBD, some needing more and some less. So adjust their dosage based on how they respond. Does your dog seem too sleepy or relaxed? Decrease the dosage. If it doesn’t seem to be affecting them, then increase the dosage amount or even the frequency to 2-3 times a day.
For Larger Dogs – Over 150lbs: We may suggest using our 1000mg or 2000mg Isolate Oil instead as a better value choice for dogs needing higher doses of CBD.

Can Pets Have Too Much CBD?
According to a 2011 study, harmful doses only occurred when CBD was given intravenously and at extremely high levels. This is far more than any dog could consume at once. More than any single bottle of Pet CBD oil or entire bag of CBD Pet Treats! At best, giving your pet too much CBD will have them extremely relaxed and sleeping comfortably. At worst, it could give them diarrhea from the excess amount of oil, food or CBD.
The Bottom Line On CBD for Pets
As a safe, effective and natural supplement, CBD can help relieve your cat or dog’s pain, inflammation, anxiety and improve their sleep. So help your furry friend out now by giving them some all-natural CBD.
