National Pet CBD Month


Did you know October is National Pet CBD Month? CBD is becoming incredibly popular for its multitude of wellness properties and millions are choosing to add this natural alternative to their day-to-day regimen. With many people experiencing CBD firsthand, it’s natural to want to provide their pets with the same wellness options.

CBD Becoming Widely Accepted for People and Pets

The market abounds with CBD products for pets. They include tinctures, treats, peanut butter, and topicals like shampoos and balms. Pet stores, online retailers, national chains, and local dog and cat boutiques are throwing themselves into the booming trend.

Because hemp-derived products are federally legal with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, their popularity will continue to grow. With so many choices, it’s important to make sure CBD products are properly sourced and manufactured to be both safe and effective for use in people and pets alike.

When it comes to pet solutions, THC-free options are the only way to go. THC, which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the high-inducing compound often associated with the cannabis plant. Being THC-free is especially important for pet products as THC, even at low levels, can be harmful to animals.


HOW TO OBSERVE #National Pet CBD Month

Tinctures, treats, peanut butter, soft chews – there are so many ways to share the CBD love with furry family members!

One of the easiest ways to provide pets with the powerful, beneficial properties of CBD is with oil tinctures or treats made with CBD oil. Tinctures can be easily added to food or homemade treat recipes or given orally. Soft chews and crunchy treats are easy, portable, and convenient options as well.

Anyone interested in trying CBD for their pets should make sure products are lab tested to be THC-free and use only pet-friendly ingredients. Factors like weight and overall quality of life will determine the proper CBD serving for dogs and cats. Results can also vary from pet to pet. Try giving your pet a small amount every day. Monitor its reaction over the course of a few weeks. If you need to, gradually increase the serving.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #NationalPetCBDMonth throughout the month of October to help continue spreading awareness to pet owners everywhere!
