Did you know that CBD can be as beneficial for your four-legged friend as it is for you? CBD has been added to everyday products for self-care, recovery and relaxation – and now CBD for pets gives you the option to assist your pet’s wellness through a variety of pet-friendly products. If your best buddy struggles with stress and discomfort, or you just want to boost their comfort and relaxation, Hemp Bombs® and our sister brand, Perfect Paws Hemp™, have unique lines of CBD products dedicated to keeping your furry friend’s tail wagging. We’re in the business of making sure your companion feels their best year-round, so continue reading our blog to learn five reasons to use CBD for pets.
What are CBD Pet Products?
CBD pet products are the same edible and topical goods that you would normally use for your pet but enhanced with CBD’s natural properties. CBD is a plant-based compound commonly derived from Industrial Hemp and provides calming effects as well as other potential benefits. Hemp Bombs’ sister brand, Perfect Paws Hemp for pets, was recently added to our online shop to give you more ways to assist your companion’s comfort and wellness. Our CBD pet products include oils, dog chews, paw butter and shampoo and conditioner.
Are CBD Products Safe for My Pet?
Yes, CBD for pets is safe for your pet to consume and use. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not cause your furry friend to experience any effects related to the “high” that is generally associated with marijuana and THC. Instead, your pet may feel more relaxed and a greater sense of calmness. Hemp Bombs and Perfect Paws Hemp products are lab tested to ensure they meet the highest quality standards and contain less than 0.3% THC – the federal legal limit for Hemp-derived CBD products.
Are There Side Effects of CBD for Pets?
While CBD for pets is largely regarded as safe, your animal may experience some minor side effects if it’s their first time trying CBD. Giving your pet CBD Oil or CBD Dog Chews may cause them to have dry mouth. Dry mouth can usually be soothed by drinking water, but if it persists, give your pet a smaller serving size of CBD or seek advice from your vet. Your pet may also feel drowsy due to CBD’s calming properties. Drowsiness is common at first, but if you notice your pet continues to be more sluggish than usual, give them a smaller serving size.
Two other potential side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. These side effects are often associated with low-grade, bad-tasting CBD Oils. With Hemp Bombs and Perfect Paws Hemp CBD Pet Oils, you don’t have to worry about taste or quality. We craft our oils in-house using current Good Manufacturing Practices and standard operating procedures to ensure each batch is safe, consistent and of the highest quality. Additionally, our oils feature pet-friendly flavors like chicken, beef and salmon that your best buddy will love.
5 Reasons to Use CBD for Pets
Whether it’s vet visits, road trips or unexpected company stopping by, odds are, your companion deals with some form of anxiety that makes them nervous. Don’t let them tackle this problem alone. Hemp Bombs and Perfect Paws Hemp CBD Dog Chews are bite-sized treats that feature 15mg of CBD. These peanut butter-flavored chews are perfect for every breed and size. CBD’s calming properties may reduce your pet’s anxiety and help them feel more relaxed in situations where they’d typically feel stressed. Give your companion 1-2 chews before a stressful situation to provide them peace of mind.
There’s no greater satisfaction than knowing your pet is happy and living in total comfort. If your best buddy struggles with joint and muscle pains or the irritations of old age, our CBD Pet Oils may be able to provide them with increased comfort. We’ve formulated Pet CBD Oils for both cats and dogs so that each of your furry friends can reap the all-encompassing benefits that CBD has to offer. CBD has shown promise as an anti-inflammatory solution and may help to ease the wear and tear your four-legged friend puts on their body.
Don’t let itchy spots, allergies and excessive shedding ruin your best buddy’s skin and coat. Perfect Paws Hemp 2-in-1 CBD Shampoo & Conditioner gently moisturizes and cleanses your pet’s skin to provide them with luscious fur. This shampoo is crafted with pet-friendly ingredients and 250mg of CBD to soothe any skin irritations that may be troubling your furry friend. Finished with a delightful tropical scent, our CBD Pet Shampoo is sure to provide your pet with healthier skin and coat when bath time rolls around.
Every time you and your best buddy go for a walk, they encounter terrains that can blister or damage their paws. So, make sure they are ready to tackle all the elements with Perfect Paws Hemp CBD Paw Butter. This soothing topical will hydrate your pet’s paw pads, while adding an extra layer of protection to safeguard them from hot, icy and rocky conditions. Our paw butter is crafted with 250mg of CBD and the moisturizing properties of coconut oil, shea butter, jojoba oil, vitamin E and sweet almond to soothe irritations so that your four-legged friend can continue to go on long walks in comfort.
5. Boost Overall Health and Wellness
Even if your pet doesn’t have any discomforts troubling them, CBD for pets can help ensure they stay their happiest and healthiest. You can create a routine using all of our CBD products to boost your pet’s overall wellness from head to tail. Daily CBD use can encourage the proper functioning of vital systems within your pet’s body including their immune health, sleep cycle, appetite and more. Establishing a consistent CBD regimen with your furry friend may be effective in promoting their optimal well-being.
