CBD for Dogs: What is It and What Does It Do?


CBD for Dogs: What You Need to Know

You love your fur babies, and so do we! (ours, we mean.) So making sure your pet is ingesting safe and healthy CBD products and/or supplements is naturally a huge mission of ours at Cannadish.

As with any pet wellness trend, when it comes to CBD for dogs, there’s a lot of information floating around online. As a good parent, you want to do what’s best for your pooch.

What do I need to know about CBD

AKC’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Jerry Klein, explains what CBD oil, in particular, is, what it does, and its safety concerns and side effects for our pups.

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp.

In most cases, CBD does not contain THC which is the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties or that “high” feeling.

How Does CBD Affect Dogs?


Currently, there has been no formal study on how CBD truly affects dogs. What scientists do know is that cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help to keep your system at tip-top shape.

What Dog Health Problems Can CBD Oil Treat?

Without the proper studies and scientific research, we want to share with our readers that there is hope! Anecdotal evidence from dog owners suggests Treats can treat pain, especially neuropathic pain, as well as helping to control seizures.

Because of CBD’s awesome anti-inflammatory properties, dogs with arthritic conditions may benefit big time from consuming treats and oils.

CBD Products on the Market

If after chatting with your professionally licensed Veterinarian, and you decide that you should try CBD as a treatment for your dog, there are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing CBD oil.

Like dogs, not all products are the same. You will definitely want a high-quality CBD oil, product, or CBD dog treat to have a better chance of it working.

CBD For Dogs

  • Look for organic. If the CBD oil is not organic, it at least should not contain pesticides, fungicides, or solvents. Bad for Fido!
  • Don’t price shop. The higher the quality and purity, the higher the cost. You don’t want to go for a cheaper option that could have toxic substances such as pesticides, herbicides, or heavy metals.
  • Get the Facts. The manufacturer should provide a certificate that tells you the amount of CBD that is in the product. Many CBD products contain only small amounts of CBD. You’ll also want to make sure there is little or no THC in the product.
  • Buy from a Reputable Company You can buy dog treats containing CBD that are safe and come from a reputable company.

As always, do your research and make sure you consult with the professionals in your pooche’s life to make the best decisions!
