Calm Oil for Dogs: The Benefits of CBD

Important Note: Before giving your pet any supplement, please always speak with your veterinarian first.

As responsible pet owners, our animal's health and well-being is always a priority. When traditional treatments often fall short and pose the risk of side effects, CBD oil offers an organic, gentler alternative. Whether it's joint pain, loud noises, separation anxiety, or a dreaded trip to the vet, CBD has become a promising remedy for a variety of ailments in both humans and animals.

In this blog we will be delving into the world of CBD oil for dogs, exploring the different benefits, usages, and considerations dog owners should keep in mind when seeking to holistically enhance their furry friends' well being.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol is a compound derived from the hemp plant which is renowned for its therapeutic properties. Like humans and other mammals, dogs have an endocannabinoid system that is responsible for maintaining and managing their general wellness. CBD interacts with this system, helping to reduce stress, pain, and inflammation alongside regulating your dog's mood, appetite, and sleep quality.

Unlike its counterpart THC which is found in the marijuana plant, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound meaning that it has no psychoactive properties and will not induce intoxication or adverse reactions like a dry mouth even in high doses. When extracted and formulated for dogs, research has shown that full-spectrum CBD oil and CBD treats are both safe and effective solutions for managing your pet's anxiety and pain.

Important Things to Consider Before You Shop

Now that the accessibility of organic CBD products for pets has significantly improved, they are widely available both online and in-store. However, it is important to remember that just like any other product you would buy for your dog, it is essential that you ensure you select a safe, effective, and high-quality product and approach your usage with care.

Look for organic CBD oils that undergo third-party testing to verify their potency and purity. It is key that you choose a reputable manufacturer who is transparent about their CBD and hemp sourcing, extraction methods, and ingredients.

Before giving your dog CBD oil you must consult your veterinarian, especially if your dog has existing health conditions or is on other medications. A veterinarian should decide whether CBD oil is the right choice for you and your pet as well as provide personalized guidance throughout your CBD journey.

Which CBD Product is Best For My Dog?


If your dog is suffering from separation anxiety or general pain, CBD oil containing CBDa (cannabidiolic acid) can offer a wide range of benefits.

Our bacon-flavored CBDa Oil for Cats and Dogs is carefully formulated to provide your furry friend with the full benefits of both CBD and CBDa (500mg of each per bottle). Both of these natural compounds are renowned for their ability to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation making our full-spectrum CBD oil an excellent choice for older dogs with arthritis and potentially other joint issues like hip dysplasia.

In addition, our pet CBDa oil is specially formulated for pets experiencing high to moderate separation anxiety symptoms and situational anxiety such as a fear of car rides, fireworks, or thunderstorms.

We ensure our products contain high-quality ingredients, our CBDa Oil for Cats and Dogs is carefully extracted from locally grown USDA-certified organic hemp plants, containing essential fatty acids shown to improve overall vitality in pets. All of our CBD oils are also tested by a USDA-certified, third-party lab for purity, potency, fungicides, pesticides, residual solvents, bacteria, and fungi/molds, ensuring that we provide the safest and highest quality products possible for your pet.


For dogs suffering from long-term anxiety, motion sickness, nerves, and digestive tract problems, CBG can be particularly beneficial. Like CBD, CBG is a natural compound found in the hemp plant that is free from THC and its psychoactive effects.

Our full spectrum CBG Oil for Cats and Dogs in peanut butter flavor combines 500mg of CBD with 500mg of CBG, providing your pet with the unique health benefits of both compounds. Our CBG oil is lab-tested and extracted using cutting-edge technology from the best local organic hemp plants, resulting in the most effective, cleanest, and best-formulated product out there.

All of our full spectrum hemp oil and CBD products are plastic-free, and packaged in 1oz glass bottles with rubber caps to ensure there is only a small amount of waste produced, helping you keep an eye on your dog's carbon paw print!

How to Administer Safely

Once your veterinarian has given you the green light to give your dog CBD oil, it is crucial that you know how much CBD to administer. Although CBD is safe at high levels for both animals and humans, not every pet has the same tolerance, so it is recommended to start with a low dose for your dog's weight and incrementally increase it as necessary.

Our bacon and peanut butter flavored CBD dog oils also make incorporating CBD into your daily routine easy. Simply drop your dog's daily dose into their food or directly into their mouth for quick results.

Overall, CBD and CBG oils hold immense promise as a natural remedy for a wide variety of health issues. From dog anxiety and chronic pain to motion sickness, CBD offers a ray of hope for pet owners looking for gentle, holistic solutions for their beloved companions.
