It’s no surprise that with all the health and wellness trends dominating social media today, pets in the 21st century are more spoiled than ever before. As science and research continue to uncover the panoply of therapeutic effects of cannabidiol (CBD), we’re finding it’s not only changing the quality of life for us humans – but that of our furry friends, too! In today’s blog, we’re answering one question we get asked all the time, “Can I give my dog CBD?” (hint: it’s an enthusiastic YES), and giving you our professional opinion on the best CBD products for dogs.
Is CBD safe for dogs?
Not only is it safe to give your dog CBD, but it’s also a highly effective natural remedy for a variety of common issues they experience. If your dog is sensitive to loud noises, CBD can help. We recommend trying CBD treats for dogs around holidays with noisy celebrations, such as Independence Day or Labor Day fireworks, or New Year’s Eve parties. This magical compound can also help regulate dogs who are hyperactive in nature or have a hard time sleeping. People everywhere are turning to CBD for dog anxiety, aggression, and even using CBD oil for dogs with cancer.
With that said, just as we advise our human customers, we advise you to be cognizant of the dosages you’re giving your dog, and consult with a veterinarian first before you start experimenting. As a general rule of thumb for any cannabis product dosage – you want to start low and go slow. What’s more, you always want to source cannabis products from a trusted brand and check the COAs (certificates of analysis) for each one before using them.
Now that you have a basic understanding of how CBD can help your pet, let’s get into the products we love and trust to bring a little extra peace, joy, and relaxation into their daily routine.
