What is CBD?
CBD is a non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid that offers both therapeutic and medicinal purposes for humans and pets. It is also natural, safe, and is derived from hemp and cannabis. Most CBD dog treats will use CBD from hemp. That said, there is no “high” and your furry best friend will not consume THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, resulting in psychoactive effects with your dog getting “high”.
Cannabidiol dog treats help dogs relax and become pain –free. The pet industry has watched the rising popularity of CBD products throughout 2019, and have recognized the effectiveness of hemp oil to help with chronic pain, anxiety and other ailments in pets.
Full-spectrum CBD tinctures offer specific terpenes and active ingredients to address health issues, including pain and anxiety in pets. Today, alternate health and wellness options for pets via natural supplements or nutraceuticals are becoming popular household items because they don’t have the side effects of pharmaceuticals. Using natural CBD supplements for pet s that utilize nano-sized microemulsion for optimal bioavailability helps to keep your pets healthy and free from pain and suffering.
Your holistic veterinarian will be able to offer you complete guidance on the correct and safe dosage of any CBD pet tinctures. Hemp pet products are natural, safe, and have the potential to help with pain, insomnia, anxiety, and plenty of other health issues in both cats and dogs.
Understanding the importance of transparency in all CBD brands is important when choosing a CBD hemp oil product for your pet. That said, consult with your veterinarian before choosing a CBD pet product and adding it to your pet’s regime.

Fireworks and 4th of July can be terrifying for pets. CBD can help ease their stress and stay calm during the the loud booms and crackles. You can buy CBD oil or treats, which can be expensive, or bake a batch of wholesome CBD infused treats at home for a fraction of the price. Friendly reminder to put collars and tags on your pets during the days around 4th of July so they can be easily identified and returned if they get scared and run away.
Can I give CBD to my chickens?
I know you’re thinking it. YES, chickens have an endocannabinoid system and may benefit. CBD (cannabidiol) is an anti-inflammatory and stress reliever. Dose according to weight, 1-2mg CBD (a drop or two) per chicken should be enough. I wonder how chickens feel about fireworks.
What Type of CBD Should I Buy for Pets?
Only use CBD oil for your pets, not THC. Please DO NOT give your pets THC, small amounts can be toxic for cats. My favorite brands for pets are VetCBD, Papa & Barkley, Care By Design, and Charlotte’s Web. Learn more about CBD for pets from Health.com.
Dosing CBD for Pets:

Tomorrow is Luna’s third birthday so I thought it would be nice to spoil her with a new pup-tent and some nice and relaxing CBD dog treats to celebrate her life!
DISCLAIMER: CBD has many health benefits for both pets and humans. It’s important to only use CBD that is specifically made for pets with no harmful flavors or additives. If you have questions about giving your pet CBD, consult your vet.
When in doubt, only use commerically made CBD pet treats if you are worried about not getting the doseage right. If you are willing to take the ‘risk’ with homemade CBD treats, these treats had great results with my dogs. They are made to be easy on their tummies and are great for digestion. But, you know your pet the best! Do what you – and your vet – agree is best for your dog.
This recipe was NOT SPONSORED but I can’t help but shout out Pet Releaf brand CBD. Specifically, I used the Hemp Oil 330 in this recipe. Pet Releaf is an affordable brand that produces high quality CBD that I’ve personally seen great results with (from my dogs – I didn’t take it myself!).
The most important part is that the CBD oil is NOT meant for human consumption as additives such as flavoring can be bad for your pet.
For Luna’s birthday, we spent the day building her a pup-tent – complete with a heated blanket in the bottom and twinkle lights in the top. Of course, she had a little sampling of her CBD treats prior to filming this, so she was full on relaxation mode by the time we started the shoot.

Keep the treats stored in an airtight container and in the fridge for up to a week. Freeze any leftover cookies for up to 6 months and thaw prior to serving for a soft and tasty treat.
