There are plenty of reasons to introduce your pet to the wellness benefits of CBD. But even with all the useful information online about CBD for dogs and cats, there’s still a lot to process and this is where CBD for pets can get confusing for some pet parents. If you’ve been thinking your pet needs CBD in their life, this article on ways to introduce CBD to dogs and cats is a perfect place to start. In this article, we’ll explore how CBD can benefit your pet and the best ways to add CBD to your pet’s daily routine.

There are all kinds of CBD products for pets to choose from, including CBD pet treats, CBD oil tinctures, CBD pet balms, and even CBD-infused peanut butter for pets! Below is a breakdown of each CBD pet product type to help you see which CBD product your dog or cat would appreciate most.

But first, let’s have a look at the benefits of CBD for dogs and other pets.

The Benefits of Cannabidiol

CBD is one of a group of chemical compounds that is produced by the cannabis plant (in this case, hemp), called cannabinoids. Dogs and other animals (including humans) produce their own cannabinoids, which are part of a cell-signaling system known as the endocannabinoid system. This system helps the body to maintain homeostasis, or balance, and helps to regulate several crucial functions, including sleep, stress, pain, immunity, mood, memory, and more. When you give your dog or cat CBD, it bolster’s your pet’s endocannabinoid system and helps maintain homeostasis. This produces a number of health benefits for your dog or cat.

CBD Treats for Dogs

No matter what breed of dog you own, it’s a foregone conclusion that your dog loves dog treats. So, it makes perfect sense to introduce your dog to CBD with CBD Dog Treats.

CBD Dog Treats combine the usual excitement of getting a “treat” with the therapeutic benefits of CBD for your pet! Pet owners often turn to CBD Dog Treats first, because they are one of the easiest (and tastiest) ways to introduce your pet to CBD.

Make sure to explore our Pet CBD Trio, with dog treats to support a variety of pet issues, including joint health, immunity, nervousness, and more.

CBD Oils

CBD Pet Tinctures are CBD oils that offer flexible CBD dosage options for your pet. We use full spectrum CBD oil in our pet tinctures, because this particular type of CBD oil contains the greatest concentration of cannabinoids — which means the greatest benefits for your pet. And because our CBD oils are legally compliant, you won’t have to worry about unsafe levels of THC in your pet’s oil.

CBD Balms

Everyone gets dry skin — or paws, in the case of pets! CBD Pet Balms provide deep-seated moisturization for your pet’s paws or any other area that needs the soothing effects of all-natural shea butter, jojoba oil, and full spectrum CBD. CBD Pet Balms help support skin health in the most soothing way for your pet!

How Much CBD Should I Give My Pet?

Let us start by saying there’s no one-size-fits-all method when it comes to giving your pet CBD. Our pets are unique in height, metabolism, weight, and other factors that affect how much CBD the body absorbs and puts to use.

That said, we strongly encourage the goldilocks approach for giving CBD to dogs, cats, and other animals. (Finding the CBD dose that’s just right for them!)

When your pet starts any new CBD product, start with a small dose and work your way up in concentration (CBD mg) until you find your pet’s sweet spot! Make sure you keep track of the quantities of CBD you give to your dog or cat, as it’s easy to forget or mix up the milligrams served on any given day.

Different Ways to Give Your Pet CBD for the First Time

So, we’ve introduced you to a variety of CBD products for dogs and cats. Here are some of the best ways to introduce CBD products to your pet.

1. Give Your Pet CBD Oil Right from the Dropper

Giving your cat or dog CBD oil from the dropper is the most direct way to give your pet CBD tinctures. If you give your pet CBD from a dropper, one of the biggest advantages is that the CBD oil makes direct contact with the capillaries inside your cat or dog’s mouth, greatly improving absorption and effectiveness. This might sound easy enough, but some pets might not fully cooperate with this method! So if you try this and find that your pet isn’t loving CBD oil from a dropper, you can try one of the other options.

2. Add Tincture Drops to Your Pet’s Food

Does your dog like freeze-dried pet treats? If so, adding CBD oil drops to their dog treats is a great idea, because the texture of many dog biscuits soaks up all of the richness of our organic CBD Pet Tincture Oil. Or drizzle the CBD oil in your cat or dog’s soft food. Either way, your dog or cat will enjoy all those CBD health benefits in every bite.

3. Use CBD-Infused Peanut Butter with Kong-Like Stimulation Toys

Kong-style pet stimulation toys provide a wide range of benefits, like improved cognitive abilities, reduced stress, and less boredom, which leads to less destructive behavior when your dog is left alone. And dogs, especially, love to eat peanut butter!

4. Reward Your Pets with CBD Treats

You can never go wrong when rewarding your pet with a treat, especially if you’re still in dog training mode or your dog expects a “treat” during some part of their daily routine.

How Long Does It Take Dogs & Cats to Feel the Effects of CBD?

So you gave your pet some CBD, and now you’re waiting for “results.” Keep in mind that the way you give your pet their CBD directly affects when your dog or cat will feel the effects.

 

For example, giving your pet a few drops of CBD right into their mouth will produce faster results because the CBD content makes direct contact with capillaries in the mouth. This method typically produces results within 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the dog or cat.

Edible CBD products will take longer to kick in — up to 90 minutes in some cases. This time difference occurs because the CBD must travel through the cat or dog’s digestive system before the body absorbs the CBD and puts it to work.

Some pets (and people, too) have to give CBD time to build up in their system for it to produce the desired effects. So, give it up to 30 days before you make your final call on the product’s overall effectiveness for your pet.

Final Thoughts: Introducing Animals to Cannabidiol

There are all kinds of creative ways to introduce your pet to CBD to see if it’s the right fit for them. Remember that experimenting with different CBD products, serving amounts, and consumption methods is vital in creating the perfect CBD routine for your pet! We think your pet will enjoy the process — especially if there’s a good amount of treats and peanut butter involved!
