4 Best CBD Oils & Supplements for Pets [Updated: May 2018]
Every pet owner just wants the best life for their furry friends. Which is why it can be so challenging to see a pet struggling with seizures, anxiety, tumors, skin conditions & other conditions. Just within the last couple of years, there has been a huge increase in the number of studies done to see how CBD interacts with humans, which has led to more studies being done to see the effects of CBD on pets.

We’ve also found that they offer one of the better biscuit/treat options for dogs, as their “large dog” treats contain 5mg of hemp extract per treat.

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 60 compounds found in the hemp plant. It interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which has increasingly been understood to have a positive influence in many aspects of health and life. CBD can be harvested from the hemp and cannabis plant, but nearly all CBD products online are derived from the hemp plant. CBD is known as “non-psychoactive”, which means you can experience the health benefits, without the typical “high” associated with THC.
Will my pet get high?
No – It’s important to note one huge difference between marijuana and hemp: Marijuana’s THC content is usually between 10 and 15%, but hemp’s THC content is 0.3% or less. Due to legal regulations, the vast majority (if not all) CBD products online are derived from hemp, not marijuana.
How CBD can help…
More and more pet owners are seeking alternative “green” treatment options for their dogs, cats, horses & other four legged friends. Products containing CBD have created an entirely new world of pet care for those seeking natural remedies.

Types of CBD products…
The two most common types of CBD products for pets are: oils and treats. CBD oil typically comes in a tincture bottle (with a dropper cap). CBD is one of the most potent & effective ways to deliver CBD to your pet. The most common way to administer CBD oil is by mixing the recommended dosage in your pet’s food. The other most common CBD product are CBD infused treats. These come in the form of soft chewable tablets or more traditional “biscuit/cookies”.
