CBD has become a hot trend across the world and millions of consumers are incorporating CBD into their daily routines. Now, some consumers are even considering to give similar CBD products to their beloved furry pets. Giving CBD for your pets is just as safe as humans taking it. As we covered in our previous blog that CBD has many potential health benefits in providing intense relief from inflammation, chronic pain and much more. As promising that CBD can provide relief from these symptoms and conditions, these benefits can work towards your pets well being as well. Research has mentioned that CBD is able to promote better joint health and cardiovascular health.
Some consumers are worried if it's safe to give CBD to your pets. Hemp-derived CBD is safe and legal to give to your pets. However, it's important to note that as long the product contains less than 0.3% THC.
Since CBD extract is often crafted into a tincture which can be dropped into their mouth, food, water or even some kind of treat that they can enjoy. You can check out our pet tincture here. It's also important to note the proper dosage to give to your pets. Our recommend dosage for your pets below for our pet tincture.
- Cats: 1/4 dropper (0.25 ML)
- Dogs: 0-55 LBS: 1/2 dropper (0.5 ML)

With the versatility of the pet tincture, the simplest way to feed your pet CBD is through the dropper. Simply by inserting the dropper into your pet's mouth, the same way humans take it by the dropper. Another way is dropping the proper dosage and mixing it with their food either wet or dry food. Another effective way for feeding CBD to your pet if they are picky eaters is simply dropping into their favorite treat. This method helps mask the flavor with their food.
