CBD & Your Dog

CBD & Your Dog
Can this legal hemp derivative help your dog?


In the last couple of years, there’s been a lot of buzz around CBD, with many pet parents singing its praises. But just what is CBD, and can it help your dog?

CBD is a hemp derivative that contains no more than 0.03% THC and won’t get your dog high. What it does contain is cannabinoids, which interact with the endocannabinoid system to provide the medical and therapeutic benefits seen from CBD oil and treats.

What to look for in a CBD product

Is it independently tested? Look for a CBD company that independently tests its products and provides a certificate of analysis.

What’s the THC level? Hemp-derived CBD should contain no more than 0.03% THC. More could harm your dog, so make sure it falls below this level.

Is it organic? Organic products are free from pesticides that could harm your dog.

How is the CBD extracted? Safe extraction methods include cold press and carbon dioxide extraction. Steer clear of companies using toxic solvents like propane, hexane or butane to extract the CBD.
