CBD is now on the market for humans and pets. Many pet owners are seeing the benefits of pet-friendly products and spreading the word. just like humans, dogs and cats also have an endocannabinoid system that functions much in the same way as the human endocannabinoid system.
Plus, many of the conditions we’ll list below manifest much in the same way in pets as they do in humans.
Here are the most common CBD benefits for cats and dogs:
- Anti-inflammatory 1 – relieves inflammation in joints and muscles
- Chronic pain relief 2– used to relieve chronic pain such as arthritis in specific breeds
- Stress relief 3– promotes overall calmness and relaxation
- Calms nausea and vomiting 4– has been effective in soothing the stomach and stimulating the appetite
Pet owners are also thrilled to know that CBD is non-psychoactive and has no toxicity level; therefore it’s incapable of causing an overdose.
“Ella, a 10-year-old Saint Bernard, doesn’t like loud noises. At the first rumble of thunder or pop of fireworks, the dog starts panting and pacing, says Jeffrey Powers, D.V.M., Ella’s owner and a veterinarian who practices in northern Michigan. “The minute fireworks go off, she’s running to hide,” he says.
At least, that’s what used to happen. But recently, Powers says he has found a way to control his dog’s noise anxiety: cannabidiol—aka CBD, a compound that can be extracted from cannabis, which includes marijuana and hemp.
CBD is thought to have many therapeutic properties, but unlike cannabis’s other main compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it doesn’t get users high. And Powers, who is also vice chairman of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Council on Biologic and Therapeutic Agents, credits CBD for easing his dog’s distress.” (Consumer Reports) 5
Fueled mainly by anecdotal reports, people are turning to CBD to help manage pain, arthritis, seizures, and other health problems in their pets. And a growing crop of CBD products marketed for pets—including tinctures, capsules, and chew treats—has burst onto the market to meet the consumer demand.
A separate study from Cornell 6 found that 2 mg per kilogram of CBD twice daily “can help increase comfort and activity” in dogs with osteoarthritis.

Our products are 3rd party laboratory tested multiple times from seed to shelf. All of our products are produced from 100% non-GMO Domestic Hemp, grown to organic standards and have been tested for contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals and mold.
