What’s the Deal with CBD Pet Treats?

Cannabidiol, more commonly marketed under the shorthand abbreviation of CBD, is an oil derived from hemp. CBD is known to offer several health benefits, including a boost to the immune system and improve the body’s ability to withstand or prevent: 

  • Arthritis and joint pain 
  • Anxiety 
  • Digestive trouble 
  • Seizure, epilepsy and other neurological ailments 
  • Blood disorders 
  • Cancer and tumors 

While CBD has become popular due to its many health benefits, the market has grown large enough to reach the pet goods industry. While CBD offers many of the aforementioned benefits, it does undergo some degree of change when baked into pet treats. Most pet treats contain between 3% to 6% CBD per amount of hemp oil involved. Furthermore, some treats only use hemp powder. 
If you want to maximize the benefits of CBD in your pet, consider buying a quality CBD oil by itself and add that to your pet’s food, waiting a few minutes for the food to absorb its properties.
