WHAT IS CBD OIL FOR PETS?

CBD Oil For Pets is a supplement extracted from the cannabis plant. CBD pet products commonly use “Full Spectrum” CBD Oil, a type of oil derived from whole-plant extractions. These products contain a wide variety of natural, valuable cannabinoids and terpenes, not just CBD because they are taken from the entire plant.

Additionally, THC – the psychoactive compound found in cannabis – has been completely removed for the sanctity of our animal companions. Your pets will not experience any of the psychoactive effects associated with cannabis, meaning they can experience all the remedial properties without the “high.”

DOES CBD OIL FOR PETS HAVE ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS?

CBD Oil For Pets comes in a variety of products. We offer CBD Oil Tinctures for both cats and dogs, but we also carry everything from CBD Treats and CBD Soft Chews to CBD No-Rinse Conditioner.

Because CBD is non-binding in nature, these products include organic binding agents that allow your pets to experience the full effects of CBD. Fractioned coconut oil (MCT) is a common binding agent in CBD Oil For Pets because it is both healthy and safe for animal consumption. According to Aly Semigran at petMD, “Coconut oil can aid dogs with everything from itchy or bumpy skin to digestion issues.”

Our CBD Oil For Pet products also include natural flavors that your pets will love! Products come in bacon and peanut butter varieties for dogs and salmon flavor for cats. We also carry flavors that both dogs, cats, and other animals will enjoy, including chicken and beef. Of course, you can always get an unflavored CBD Tincture for your pets if that’s what you prefer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We understand that you may have questions about CBD, especially when it comes to your pets. As CBD enthusiasts and avid animal lovers, CBD Choice is committed to answering any and all of your questions!

Check out some of the Frequently Asked Questions we’ve already answered, and feel free to reach out to us if your question wasn’t addressed!

Yes, it is safe for pets to take CBD Oil. CBD plays off the natural cannabinoid receptors found in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of all mammals, pets included. The ECS also produces internal cannabinoids that are similarly structured to CBD. CBD binds to the receptors found within the ECS, and to other receptors found throughout the body. Users report pain-relieving properties when taking CBD, and there’s a reason to believe CBD affects animals similar to humans. While CBD research is still developing, early studies concluded that CBD may be helpful in addressing animal discomforts and improving the overall wellness of your pets.
Pet lovers report a variety of reasons for giving CBD to their furry companions. Some have pets with chronic pain and want to alleviate their animal’s symptoms. Others believe CBD soothes anxiety in their pets. There are also pet owners who just want their pets to have a better quality of life. Our pets – especially dogs – possess high amounts of energy, and are almost guaranteed to developed muscle and joint pain over time due to the constant strain on their bone structure. Research is underway to fully determine the relationship between CBD and alleviating muscle pain and inflammation in animals, but early results are promising. Whatever your reasoning, CBD can provide an array of beneficial properties. It’s important to understand your pets’ needs in order to provide them with the right CBD products.
No, pets do not get “high” from taking CBD. Although CBD is derived from cannabis – the same plant responsible for marijuana – CBD Oil contains only trace amounts of THC, the chemical responsible for creating this high in marijuana users. In CBD pet products, however, the trace amounts of THC are completely removed from the CBD Oil. These products do not produce any kind of psychoactive state in our animals. At CBD Choice, all of our pet products are 100% THC-Free.
Each and every pet is unique, meaning there’s no concrete algorithm for determining which products are right for every one of our furry friends. However, there are certain things to keep in mind as a pet owner if you’re deciding which products to give your precious pets. For example, pets with experience in taking oral medications will be more responsive to CBD Oil Tinctures than pets with no oral medication experience. Likewise, elderly pets with weak teeth will not respond as well to CBD Soft Chews. Pet owners often report that their pets respond best to CBD Treats. This is because our pets are already accustomed to receiving treats, and manufacturers align these tastes directly to popular pet flavorings, such as peanut butter for dogs and salmon for cats.
The amount of CBD Oil a pet should take depends on their size. CBD Choice pet products present clear labels on every product, letting pet lovers know exactly how much their pets should take, eliminating confusion! For CBD Oil Tinctures, the dosage varies for small, medium, and large animals – amounts are usually measured in full or half droppers, with strengths ranging from 150mg CBD to 750mg CBD. What size is your dog?
  • Small-Sized Dogs are recommended to take a half dropper per day
  • Medium-Sized Dogs are recommended to take between a half and full dropper per day
  • Large-Sized Dogs are recommended to take a full dropper or more each day
  • The amount of CBD you give your animals depends on the size of your pets and the product you are using. All pet products found at CBD Choice – including Treats and Soft Chews – display clear dosage information, printed right on the package. We want to ensure that your pets are getting the best CBD treatment, because we know how important our pets are!
CBD is administered to pets in a variety of ways, and it all depends on the product. CBD Tinctures, for example, are administered sublingual, meaning owners must drop the CBD Oil beneath their pet’s tongue. CBD Treats, on the other hand, are administered like every other pet treat on the market: Just give them to your pet to chew and enjoy! Depending on the size or your pet, they should be given anywhere from half a treat to two full treats per day – Amounts vary by product, but clear package labels make sure you know exactly how many treats to give your pets! Additionally, CBD Choice carries a range of CBD Topicals specifically designed for pet treatment. These include No-Rinse CBD Conditioner, Foaming Hemp Topical, and various other wellness products. These are applied directly to a pet’s outer coat.
Like any pet products, the best way to tell if a pet enjoys CBD is by observing their behavior after ingestion. The effects of CBD start working anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes after ingestion, depending on the size of the animal. Many pet owners report seeing no noticeable difference in behavior after giving their pets CBD, but others report noticing calm, soothing effects. It all depends on your pet and why they’re taking CBD. For pets with arthritis, chronic muscle or joint pain, or other health problems, a veterinarian can observe their pain before and after taking CBD to see how they react to the supplement.

Yes, CBD is safe for puppies, kittens, and other baby animals to ingest. Even in younger mammals, cats and dogs included, the ECS is already producing natural cannabinoids that help regulate nervous system functionality. Administering CBD to animals in this early stage of life is not harmful and could actually aid the development of natural cannabinoid receptors, but research is still underway. If you want to start your puppy or kitten on CBD, just be sure to read the dosage information labeled on the product’s packaging and follow all weight guidelines for administering the right amount of CBD to your pet.
Because there are so many different CBD chocolates available, there are wide variations in potency. When trying a new CBD chocolate (or other edible), be sure to carefully inspect the dosage recommendations and CBD content. Every body reacts differently to CBD, and the ideal dosage for one user will be different than for the next. CBD Choice is dedicated to always providing comprehensive and accurate information about the products available on this site. If after reading the available information you still have questions or concerns about the dosage or potency of a CBD edible, please feel free to reach out; we are always happy to help, and nothing is more important to us than making sure that our customers are fully informed.
A Vin News Service report in 2018 surveyed 2,131 veterinarians about CBD. Of those surveyed, 92 percent reported having patients who had asked about giving CBD to their pets, while a staggering 63 percent said they are asked at least once a month. According to that same survey, “nearly 79 percent [of vets] indicated that the products were somewhat or very helpful as analgesics for chronic pain [in animals]; and more than 62 percent found them somewhat or very helpful for managing anxiety.” Because CBD is still unregulated by the FDA, many U.S. states disallow veterinarians from directly suggesting the use of CBD to pet owners. However, more and more animal health professionals are beginning to observe the results from pets and CBD. According to the Vin News Service survey, “A great majority [of vets] – more than 80 percent – had not observed or received client reports of any adverse effects” in pets taking CBD.
