Cannabidiol for Dogs: What is Quality?

CBD Products for Dogs

It may be possible that you have thought about using Cannabidiol (CBD) pet treats to assist your favorite furry friend. Lucky for you, you’ve come to the right place for information. A person’s pet means a great deal to them, and dogs often feel the same emotions we do. Dogs can feel discomfort, uneasiness, nausea, and even pain, among other feelings. Because of this, owners of our furry friends are responsible for taking care of “man’s best friend.” 

There is a lot of hype surrounding the topic of CBD, so it is easy to get caught up. It is important to us that we inform readers and potential buyers with accurate information. There are a lot of places that believe that CBD could be an important part of your pup’s overall wellness. So, let’s take a closer look. 


What Does CBD Do to Dogs?

We have a general idea of how CBD may affect animals. This knowledge is based on the fact that humans and dogs have a similar endocannabinoid system (ECS). If you’d like to know more about how ECS functions, here is a great article. We understand that CBD is non-psychoactive in dogs, like humans, so your canine companion will not feel the effects that THC creates, or the “high.”  CBD is generally safe for dogs, but should not contain traces of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Although CBD products made from industrial hemp are legal if containing less than 0.3% THC, we believe you should make sure that the CBD product you purchase has 0.00% THC for your dog.


What options of CBD are there for my dog? 

A Canine CBD product is deemed a quality product when there is excessive attention to the details of creating it. To get this high standard of product it must have no traces of THC, the CBD should be extracted by a reputable company, and be completely harmless when given to your furry friend. 

Panacea Life has taken extreme steps to make sure our canine products are manufactured correctly and safely. We want to ensure the quality and exactness of the development of our CBD for dogs. We take our role in possibly assisting pets very seriously. We even had a banner in our headquarters with the Panacea Life team and all of our employees’ canine companions!

Do your research! 

To reiterate, not all CBD is the same. Some CBD products contain high or low levels of THC, but most pet-specific CBD products should not have any traces of THC as this can disorient your dog and be toxic at high and continual doses. There are good, but also bad, treats for your pets. For example, CBD gummies are probably a bad option for your pet. Besides the possibility of their being a choking hazard, a dog’s body responds to certain chemicals differently than humans. Notable examples of dog hazards are chocolate, mushrooms, artificial sweeteners, and garlic. It is important to note that sweetened gummies may contain Xylitol which  is toxic and harmful to dogs. Xylitol is often used as a replacement for normal sugar in candy and candy-adjacent products. While this ingredient can be processed by humans, a minuscule amount may cause hypoglycemia, liver failure, and seizures in dogs. Because of this, it is essential to choose dog CBD products that are from a responsible CBD manufacturer.

Important Note– High amounts of THC are toxic to animals. Never give your dog Marijuana. Consult with your vet before starting your dog on any CBD regimen.
