Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is the second most common active ingredient in Cannabis. While many pet owners recommend it for its significant positive impact on their dog's health, CBD products aren't always recommended by veterinarians. Pet Releaf Hemp Oil and Hemp Edibles come in many formulas to be suitable for most dogs and cats.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in marijuana and hemp plants. Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. Your pet will not get ‘high' from treats, oils or supplements containing cannabidiol.
While it is relatively new in the animal medical field, treatment with CBD products is being extensively researched for pets. The research is promising, which is the biggest reason why these products are becoming more and more popular with pet owners, veterinarians and other experts in the pet industry.
Cannabidiol has had some very positive effects on dogs suffering with health conditions such as anxiety, arthritis and cancer in dogs. It's definitely a topic that you'll need to research on your own, and you should speak with your veterinarian before including anything new in your dog's diet.
If your vet isn't open to the idea, perhaps a chat with your local holistic veterinarian may help. If all else fails, there are numerous holistic vets willing to consult with pet owners online or over the phone. If you decide that you'd like to try this treatment option with your pet, Pet Releaf Hemp Oil and Hemp Edibles are a great choice. Our dogs love them, and they are 100% safe.
Pet Releaf Hemp Oil & Hemp Edibles for Dogs Review
100% of the hemp used by Pet Releaf is sourced in the USA, with no herbicides or pesticides used in the growing process. The company only uses 100% human-grade hemp oil. And, each of their products are sent out monthly for third party laboratory testing where they are tested for guaranteed potency, CBD and THC levels, and to ensure no toxic solvents or chemicals were used in our extraction process.
These CBD infused dog treats are made in Colorado. They are available in 4 formulas:
- Hip & Joint
The ‘Daily' chews are formulated to aid your pet's overall health and well-being. From supporting mobility and digestion to helping with your dog's skin and coat health, these chews are an excellent addition to any pet's diet.
As you can probably guess by the names of the other three formulas, they are formulated to calm dogs with stress and anxiety issues, support mobility and joint health, and promote healthy digestion. There are different milligram options per serving depending on the size of your dog.
There are also different flavors available, as well. Pet Releaf Edibles are available in peanut butter and carob, peppered bacon, sweet potato pie, peanut butter and banana, blueberry and cranberry, and pizza flavors. These treats aren't available on Amazon, but you can purchase them through the company's website for $24.99-$44.99 depending on the flavor and quantity that you choose.
Treats are easy to give to most dogs, but if your pup is picky or you want a more versatile way to give your dog his daily CBD treatment, try oil infused with CBD. My dogs will lick the oil right out of the dropper, but you could also put the oil on top of their daily meals.
These hemp oils are available in 3 formulas:
- Hip & Joint
There are different milligram options (from 100-750 mg per bottle) depending on your dog’s size/needs. All Pet Releaf hemp oils are USDA certified organic. As with the Edibles chews, these oils aren't available on Amazon at the time of this review. If interested, you can purchase the oil through the company's website for $23.99-$89.99 depending on the formula and milligram level that you choose.
It may seem like these chews and supplements are overpriced. However, if you compare them to other similar products on the market, they are actually quite similar in price. You can get cheaper CBD products, but they will be made with poorer quality ingredients and the CBD may not be pure.
It's important to do your research and select products that are tested for toxic solvents and chemicals as well as potency. Pet Releaf is transparent about the test results for their products, and as I mentioned, they send all of their products out for third party testing each month.
