CBD Pet Oil and CBD pet treats are becoming increasingly popular, but so far, most of the growth in popularity can be attributed to word of mouth.  Someone tries a CBD product on themselves or on their pet, see a positive result, and recommends it to a friend, who then tries it as well.


There’s nothing at all wrong with that, but one of the unfortunate side effects of that kind of growth is that it creates the opportunity for misinformation (and often contradictory information) to creep into the mix.


In this piece, my goal is to help set the record straight by providing you with factual information about the benefits and effects of CBD-related products (including pet treats).

You’ll have good information at your fingertips and be in a position to make an informed decision about whether or not it’s something you want to try for yourself or your pet.


Let’s take a closer look then!


CBD-related products are not psychoactive – While there are dozens of compounds in marijuana, the two biggies are CBD and THC.  It is THC that provides the “high.” No matter how much CBD you take, you’re not going to get a buzz at all, and neither will your pet.

  1. CBD-related products have no major side effects – It would be overselling it to say that CBD-related products have no side effects at all, but the only time you actually see side effects is when you vastly exceed the recommended dosage, and then, the worst of the side effects are a slightly upset stomach and occasional diarrhea, both of which are easily controlled by simply not gorging on the stuff.
  2. There’s a growing body of evidence, now backed up by scientific research that suggests regular doses of CBD Pet oil slows the growth of cancerous tumors.
  3. In addition to that CBD-related products work very well in tandem with the most effective cancer therapies, including chemotherapy.  Three of the big side effects of chemotherapy are: pain, loss of appetite, and nausea, and CBD Pet oil(along with any products infused with that oil) is an effective counter to all three side effects!
  4. Veterinarians estimate that about 5% of dogs suffer from some type of seizure-inducing ailment (with Epilepsy being the most common).  CBD-infused products have been proven to make seizures less likely to occur, and to lessen the severity and duration of seizures when they do occur.
  5. In addition to reducing nausea and increasing appetite, CBD-infused products have a proven track record of reducing the effects of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) in both humans and in pets.
  6. CBD Pet Oil promotes better heart health by protecting the body’s arteries, lowering blood pressure and slightly slowing heart rate (this is true in both humans and animals).

You can also read about the Cannabinoid System in Pets to learn more about the effects of CBD and Hemp.

For these reasons and many more, if you have an older pet whose quality of life isn’t what it used to be, you should consider adding CBD pet treats to your care regimen.  Your four-legged friend will thank you for it!

    Great post! I’ve actually been looking into CBD Oil for my little furbaby… It’s been such a help to me that I figured it would help her with her anxiety during storms as well as the arthritis she’s starting to get in her hips. She’s still a spry young thing at only 12 years old! Love her to death and would do anything for her.
    If you have any suggestions on what may be the best for her and these conditions that would be awesome feedback.

    Thank you,

      Hello Sabrina dn thanks for the comment.
      Any CBD oil product would probably work for your kitty, but since I am not a vet, it would be best for you to consult with your vet first, since they would be more knowledgeable in regards to dosage, afflictions and the overall health of your pet. I suggest the same for humans who are interested in using CBD oil. Even though it is easy to acquire the CBD oil for pets, your vet would be the best to consult with first.

    Marihuana for pets, I had to look twice when I saw this post.
    Ok, I understand now it is the medical CBD that is used here. I just wondered, is there not a small, tiny little bit of THC remaining in these products?
    I mean they now have these CBD cigarets in Switzerland but they still have a relaxing side effect.

      Hello Stefan
      It is actually not marijuana for pets, but rather the CBD from hemp, which is very low in THC but rather a more concentrated form of CBD. Neither will get you high, but are used more for the actual medicinal effect of the CBD. In regards to the cigs that are available in the Swiss market, they too are comprised of mainly hemp, which according to Swiss law, must contain less than 1% THC, which is just not enough to get you high or even relaxed. It could be based on peoples conception of the product, creating a placebo effect of euphoria. But hey, if the product leads people to believe that they are getting a buzz, who am I rain to rain on their parade!!! Here is a link with more info on the CBD cigs available. https://medicalmarijuana.co.uk/supermarkets-in-switzerland-selling-cbd-cigarettes/

    Great information, I let my sister-in-law read this because she has a sick dog.

      Sorry to hear about your sister in laws sick dog. There have been so many products that have been introduced for pets in the CBD market. Do you know what is wrong with the dog? Perhaps i could suggest a product that may help. Let me know!!

    Hi Brad,

    Great post! CBD oil really is making a big impact at last. It has really shown scientifically to help cancer in humans and pets and being a natural plant based product Big Pharma can’t trade mark it and make their billions which is great.

    I didn’t know there was so much CBD out there for pets so thanks for a great post with excellent information, cheers, Kev

      there are now so many products that are available for pets!! Dogs and cats seem to suffer from many of the same ailments as us humans, so it only makes sense that these products will work on pets also. CBD for dogs has really caught on, and is making a headway in the veterinary field, with many vets coming on board to prescribe the product.
