The Benefits of CBD for Your Pet
Before we dig into the dog treats, it’s probably a good idea to brush up on just what CBD is, and get a better understanding of its potential benefits for your dog.
CBD is a chemical compound that comes from the oil of the hemp plant. CBD works by interacting with receptors in an animal's endocannabinoid system. Effects are similar across species — be it dog, cat, or human — as for all vertebrate creatures, the endocannabinoid system is tied into receptors in various organs and systems throughout the body. Just as the body’s own endocannabinoids support these various organs and systems, and help them to maintain balance (homeostasis), CBD does the same thing, supporting homeostasis and helping to regulate important functions, such as appetite, circadian rhythms (sleep), stress and pain responses, mood, memory, motor control, and more.
This is why a pet, such as a dog or cat, can benefit from CBD in the same ways that humans do. Much like humans, dogs typically tolerate CBD well, and experience a range of health and wellness benefits when they consume this hemp compound. Here are some of the common reasons pet parents use CBD dog treats to help keep their dogs happy and healthy.
CBD Dog Treats for Stress and Anxiety
Some dogs are more high-strung than others, and even ordinarily calm dogs can have situations that cause them stress. This can be serious for your dog, as that stress can potentially, over time, develop into long-term anxiety. Stress & Anxiety CBD Treats for Dogs from Penelope’s Bloom are an excellent way to ease your dog’s stress before triggering events, such as trips to the vet or a night of fireworks in your neighborhood.
Each of these CBD dog treats contains full-spectrum CBD oil, plus natural relaxants, including passion flower oil, chamomile oil, L-tryptophan, L-theanine, valerian root, and more. Naturally flavored with blueberry, sweet potato, and other organic ingredients, these calming CBD dog treats for stress also can be used as part of a routine to address more consistent issues, such as separation anxiety.
CBD Treats to Relieve Pain & Improve Mobility
As our dogs age, we eventually notice them slowing down and becoming less active. Arthritis and joint pain can afflict them just like us, and when it does it frequently leads to a reduction in quality of life for your dog. Joint & Mobility CBD Treats for Dogs deliver powerful full spectrum CBD oil, plus potent anti-inflammatories, turmeric and chondroitin, as well as glucosamine and other soothing ingredients.
Like our Stress & Anxiety CBD Dog Treats, these CBD pet treats come in a delicious blueberry and sweet potato flavor, and contain an assortment of other natural ingredients. Joint & Mobility CBD Dog Treats are formulated to deliver minor pain relief, as well as anti-inflammatories to reduce swelling. We owe our dogs the best quality of life we can give them. Try our CBD Joint & Mobility Treats today and see if these tasty treats can help your dog buddy enjoy walks and other activities like they used to.
CBD Pet Treats for Immune System Support
In addition to being an effective anti-inflammatory, CBD also demonstrates antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Antioxidants are vital in fighting free radicals that cause damage from the inside out. Our Heart & Immunity CBD Treats for Dogs are formulated specifically to boost immunity, combining the power of CBD with other known antioxidants and amino acids. Among the active ingredients in these healthy CBD dog treats are full spectrum CBD oil, omega 3, vitamins A, C and E, L-taurine, hawthorn berry, green tea extract, and more. And as you might expect, these Heart & Immunity CBD Dog Treats feature the blueberry and sweet potato flavoring, as well as other naturally occurring ingredients. These dog treats make a great addition to any dog’s daily nutrition program.
All three of our CBD chews and treats are available in two strengths: 300mg CBD for smaller dogs and 600mg CBD for larger dogs. Each formulation of dog treats contains 30 treats per bag.
Some Notes on Dosage for Our CBD Dog Treats
Penelope’s Bloom CBD hard chews for dogs make dosages easy, with the same amount of organic CBD oil and other active ingredients in each dog treat. We also offer our CBD dog chews in different CBD strengths for larger and smaller dog breeds, eliminating the guesswork of trying to break CBD dog biscuits into smaller pieces for a lower CBD dose.
For situations that require more flexibility in CBD dosing, we also carry CBD oil tinctures for dogs as well as CBD-infused peanut butter for dogs, which allow for creating custom CBD doses for your pet.
Please follow the CBD dosing guides on the product packaging, along with any instructions provided by your veterinarian. While CBD for dogs is safe and well tolerated, pet parents do need to be responsible for keeping these products stored safely and preventing overconsumption.
