CBD Products for Dogs: What You Need to Know
Most people by now have heard of CBD, but might be confused about what it really is, how it’s used and why it’s beneficial for dogs.
It is recommended to use full-spectrum hemp oil because, in addition to CBD, hemp oil contains a variety of other beneficial plant compounds that also communicate with your dog’s cannabinoid system. Products called isolates remove these other beneficial compounds to isolate the CBD and may not be as effective for your dog’s overall health.
Hemp used for CBD is a non-psychoactive plant, different from the cannabis plant used for marijuana that contains psychoactive levels of THC, and is completely safe for dogs. CBD is legal in the state of Tennessee but is not in certain states, so be sure to check local regulations when traveling with your CBD products!
There are HUNDREDS of CBD products for dogs in the market at this point, and not all of them are created with equal care. Three Dog Bakery partners with Pet Releaf, which grows their own hemp at a Certified USDA Organic Hemp Farm in Colorado.
Adding CBD can benefit any dog – even a completely healthy one! But some health conditions that can be improved are:
- Anxiety, situational or chronic
- Chronic pain
- Joint inflammation
- Age-related conditions
- GI issues
- Seizure management
- Skin conditions, when administered topically
We partner with Pet Releaf for their exceptional growth and production standards, and carries the entire complement of their line including oils and treats. For situational anxiety, we carry additional treats from Super Snouts Hemp Company and Colorado Honey Hemp. We’d love to talk with you about your specific health concerns and how hemp oil can be beneficial!
