Dogs love treats. We're pretty sure our canine companions perfected "puppy dog" eyes just to get extra treats from us (and it works!).

As much as you love to spoil your pampered pooch, you're still probably picky about how you choose to spoil them. You want to indulge Buddy or Bella, but you want to know what you're giving your good boy or girl is actually good for them.

If you're considering CBD treats for your dog, we're here to answer your questions about how to "treat" your dog right!

What Are CBD Treats for Dogs?
CBD dog treats can be chewy or crunchy and are made with CBD (or cannabidiol), as one of the primary ingredients. CBD is hemp-derived, then manufactured and tested to be THC-free*, which means CBD dog treats made from hemp will not get your dog "high" or cause any psychoactive effects. Hemp-derived CBD can provide the same benefits for our pets as it does for us, like helping to manage everyday stress, maintain a sense of calm, and support overall physical comfort.

Are CBD Treats Safe for Dogs?
As a pet parent, you want to know that what you give your dog is safe. You look at labels so you can avoid artificial fillers and ingredients. You take your dog for regular checkups and ask your veterinarian about diet and exercise to keep your best friend healthy.

Adding CBD to a daily wellness routine is no different. You want to know that the CBD treats you choose are safe and are the best option for your dog. Since not every CBD pet product is made the same, here's what to look for to find the best CBD treats:

  • Uses premium CBD made from hemp grown in the US
  • Third-party lab tested to be THC-free*
  • Made with only pet-safe ingredients
  • Doesn't include artificial fillers or ingredients
  • Available in different strengths based on your dog's weight
  • Directions and serving suggestions are spelled out clearly

    If the treats you've chosen check all these boxes, you can feel confident when giving CBD treats to your dog. However, if your dog is on medication or being treated for medical or behavioral issues, it's always a good idea to talk to your veterinarian before adding anything new to your pet's daily routine.


    Can You Give CBD Treats Every Day?
    Yes, you can give your dog CBD treats daily as long as you follow the suggested serving amounts, which should be based on your dog's weight. As with anything else, moderation is key, so as long as you don't overdo it, you can give in to those pleading puppy dog eyes and spoil your pupper with some CBD goodness! And if you're giving your dog other CBD products like oil tincture or peanut butter, just be sure you don't exceed their total daily suggested serving.

    Can CBD Treats Help With Calming or Stress?
    No matter their size, some dogs can be more nervous or hyper than others. Does your anxious pup shred the pillows or howl when you're gone? Or maybe your poor pooch gets nervous around other dogs or is afraid of storms, loud noises, or new faces and places. These are some of the reasons people give their dogs CBD to help them be more relaxed and comfortable. And if your dog needs even more help staying calm during stressful situations, consider a specially formulated calming soft chew as part of their CBD wellness routine.
