Both Hemp and Marijuana are species of cannabis plants, and while they have the same cannabinoids and terpenes, the percentages and ratios differ immensely.

Independently & Third Party Lab Tested

Certificate of Analysis (COA): Unfortunately, many companies lie about how much CBD is in their product. That’s why a certificate of analysis is so important. This is awarded to companies that have had their CBD for dogs independently lab tested for quality, accuracy, and safety. You can find ours here.

Is Your Dog CBD Oil Human Grade?

All the available evidence indicates that long term use of CBD oil causes no side effects; however, CBD oil has only truly been available for pets for a couple years. The most common reason our customers cite for using CBD is to replace prescription drugs that have a known history of long term side effects. Always consult your veterinarian and use our dosing chart/schedule to coordinate the use of CBD with prescription medications.

From time to time, dogs will experience a form of stress. However, each dog is affected differently from this issue. Here is a great study on CBD as it relates to stress in animal study participants. While this study was conducted on animals, the calming effects of CBD is also found in humans.

Thankfully, hemp-derived CBD is not toxic and it produces less side effects than other options. While it’s true that CBD oil is well tolerated among its users, consulting with your veterinarian is a must to ensure your pet has no adverse reactions. Here at Holistic Hound, our non-intoxicating full spectrum USDA organic CBD oil is veterinarian formulated, and can be administered once or twice daily, or as needed.

Reputable companies provide recommended dosing instructions on the labels of their products. This is important because different companies specifically formulate their products, and the recommended dosage can vary from one product to another. Generally, the amount of organic CBD oil is calculated by mg per kg of body weight. So a dog that weighs less than 20 pounds will receive a smaller milligram amount of CBD than a dog that weighs 50 pounds or more. At Holistic Hound, our USDA organic CBD oils include an easy to measure dropper, allowing pet owners to administer the correct amount of CBD for their pup.

How often should I give my dog CBD oil?

To make things even more complicated, hemp seed oil can also be referred to as hemp oil. Confused yet? Don’t be. When you come across a CBD company that refers to their products as CBD oil for dogs or -hemp extract for dogs, they’re typically referring to cannabinoid-rich hemp-derived CBD oil for dogs.

According to the founder of Veterinary Cannabis Education and Consulting, Casara Andre, D.V.M. recommends caution when giving CBD to dogs. That said, it’s important to start CBD oil slowly, at a low dosage, and then gradually increase it until you reach the desired effect. Additionally, Andre advises that CBD oils are easier to dose and offer much more bioavailability than edible bites. However, edible CBD dog bites can be highly effective and convenient once you learn how well your pet tolerates CBD.

Follow dosing instructions

CBD companies are using the terms “CBD oil” and “hemp oil” interchangeably. Because there’s a lack of FDA regulation in the CBD industry, some CBD companies replace the term “CBD oil” with “hemp oil” to avoid complications with the FDA. Unfortunately, this causes a ton of confusion among consumers. Although hemp-derived CBD (which contains less than 0.3% THC) falls under FDA jurisdiction, CBD derived from marijuana (which contains much more than 0.3% THC) is still considered a Schedule I substance.

Here are links to two studies that demonstrate some of CBD’s potential benefits. While these studies help validate CBD’s properties, more evidence is definitely needed. However, both of these studies do showcase that CBD supports a healthy inflammatory response and it helps maintain joint mobility.
