All you need to know about CBD Dog Treats
Cannabidiol (CBD) products for dogs are having a big impact on the organic hemp-based CBD industry. The science has confirmed that dogs also have endocannabinoid systems (ECS), so can benefit from CBD. Furthermore, now that it is possible to make hemp-derived products for pets that are completely non-psychoactive with no THC, it’s much safer for your dog, too.
This post will review our very own CBD Genesis Dog Treats. We have listened to what pet owners are looking for from a CBD-infused pet product, and have developed an assortment of treats that are suitable for all situations.
About CBD Genesis Dog Treats
CBD Genesis Dog Treats are a little stronger than those you’ll find elsewhere – especially our 50mg treats. We’ll touch more on the right CBD dosage for dogs later, but it mostly comes down to being sensible.
Ingredients and lab test analysis
Our dog treats are made with a CBD-isolate extract taken from the hemp plant. This pure CBD extract is combined with a host of all-natural ingredients to add flavor. Our current options are chicken and bacon.
We hire Colorado-based Botanacor Services to conduct the third-party lab report on these dog treats. The results confirm that CBD is the only cannabinoid in this product and that there is no THC.
Why CBD-isolate is best for your dog
CBD-isolate is our choice of extract because it gives pet owners absolute certainty when using CBD to treat their furry friend. It goes without saying that dogs are different to humans! But it is because dogs have more sensitive systems than humans that they should be given veterinarian-formulated products, and ingredients that we fully understand.
With full-spectrum CBD products, there is the potential that a hemp extract could contain a little bit of THC. While tiny amounts are fine for humans and won’t produce psychoactive effects, we cannot be sure of the impact on dogs. Moreover, the other cannabinoids and terpenes in a full-spectrum extract could also affect dogs in ways we haven’t researched.
However, there is a lot more research – on humans and animals – which specifically concerns CBD. It is well documented that CBD is safe and causes few side effects. With this in mind, you can be confident when treating your dog with CBD-isolate products.
Why use CBD dog treats?
CBD is available for pets in oil and spray form, too. These products are great for adding to your pet’s food, providing they like them, but it’s a lot harder to give them their doses of CBD directly. However, the dog treats have been designed to be delicious for your pet and, therefore, easy to administer. Your dog will wish that they can have them all the time!
Benefits of CBD Genesis Dog Treats
Dealing with your dog’s anxiety can be difficult and emotionally bearing. Some triggers are frightening for your dog, such as fireworks, loud noises and meeting new people, children in particular. Others, like separation from an owner or moving to a new house, can have a more distressing, long-term impact.
Repetitive behavior and panting can be a sign of anxiety, as can poor interaction with other dogs. An anxious dog, not unlike humans, will often try to retreat to a quiet area away from others.
CBD is an excellent natural treatment for humans with anxiety, and may benefit dogs via the same mechanism. The GABA neurotransmitter is essential for optimum brain functioning, as it helps to reduce the excessive signalling which causes anxiety. With these CBD dog treats for anxiety, GABA can take a more active role improving your pet’s quality of life in the process.
A dog in pain cannot enjoy the same level of activity that they once did. They may also go off their food, and start barking more often and become growly or whiny. These are all warning signs that your dog is in discomfort, and is in need of treatment to get back to their best.
Thankfully, CBD oil for dogs can provide genuine pain relief. One of the ECS’ many function is to control how much pain we experience, and CBD essentially has a dampening effect on pain. Pain perception is regulated by ECS receptors in the central nervous system.
As with humans, dogs are prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for inflammation. But pet owners seeking a natural alternative with fewer side effects should check out our CBD dog treats. The CBD is able to regulate levels of inflammation, so that it doesn’t reach the high levels which cause damage to a dog’s body, and ultimately pain.
In addition to being an anti-inflammatory, CBD doesn’t stop all inflammation. This is important as a healthy immune system needs to be capable of some inflammation to neutralize invasive threats.
Intrigued by CBD’s benefits for dogs? Our dog treats allow you to experiment with both low and high doses. The larger your dog, the more CBD you should look at giving them. But start any size pet on a low dose and only increase with time. The gradual CBD approach works for dogs and humans.
It is also so important that you only give your dog CBD products made for pets. These are carefully made to contain no THC or any other ingredients that may be harmful for pets. You cannot guarantee this with regular products as they are not made with pets in mind!
