CBD PET TREATS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
Pets and people alike have an endocannabinoid system that reacts with cannabinoid compounds, like CBD, to balance their daily health. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant that can be used to balance your pets health on a daily basis. Animals metabolize CBD in a similar way to people and can reap the same benefits naturally.
There are many CBD products that cater to pets. From oils to pet chews, you can utilize the benefits of hemp to bring comfort to your pet quickly and easily. However, It’s important to remember that dogs and other pets can react badly to THC, so always ensure that the CBD products you purchase for your pets are THC-free*. At Koi CBD, we have two varieties of CBD oil pet treats for people interested in giving their pets CBD. There are the Koi CBD Soft Chews, and the Koi Naturals CBD Spray For Pets, both of which are ideal delivery options for pets, no matter how fussy they are.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS PETS CAN EXPERIENCE FROM CBD?
Just like any other dietary supplement, your pets may feel some mild side effects after ingesting CBD. One of the most common side-effects seen in animals is drowsiness. Just like people, too much CBD can lead to drowsiness or sedation. If you find that your pet becomes sleepy or sedated after ingesting hemp pet treats, then simply decrease the amount you give them. Much like finding your ideal dose, give your pet a small amount to start and then gradually increase the dosage to suit your pet’s needs.

HOW MUCH CBD OIL SHOULD YOU GIVE YOUR PETS?
One of the safest and easiest ways to administer CBD to your pets is to start off slowly and then increase the amount over time. Start with the minimum amount recommended, and then see how your pet handles it before you increase the amount. Just like people, our pets are all different. They are different sizes and will react differently to the same amount of CBD. What works for one animal, may be completely different for another.
WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR WHEN YOU’RE CHOOSING CBD OIL FOR YOUR PETS?
Animals do not react well to THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is important to choose pet products that are THC-free* for the safety of your pet. When choosing products for your pets, it is best to rely on companies with the following guidelines:
- A reputable brand which is available to answer any questions you may have about their CBD products for pets.
- A company which isn’t afraid to have their lab results on display.
- A company which uses a broad spectrum CBD oil.
