Honestly, these treats resemble peanut butter cookies that I make for my fellow human beings—with the added nutrition of carrots for your dog. If you told me they were peanut butter munchies for me, I’d definitely accept them without question and dole them out to my friends at a party. But they’re for dogs—gourmet, fancy dogs! And they contain 5mg of Colorado-cultivated CBD per biscuit.
Dogs with chronic inflammation and joint troubles can also benefit tremendously from having some CBD added into their diets. CBD is a known pain reliever, and a natural one at that, so it can go a long way in relieving the aches and pains your dog might feel on a daily basis, and it has also been found to help treat inflammation and give pups a more comfortable life.
In order to make that CBD into an easily ingestible material, researchers have found ways to condense it down into an oil, which can then be added to food or swallowed directly. This oil, known as hemp oil, is produced by a variety of manufacturers, and as legalization takes place in more and more states the market seems to be growing exponentially, and even more big names are getting into the ring. Each of these brands will also produce several different kinds of hemp oil, but if you are looking for the natural, plant-based oil that will bring about the most relief, keep your eye out for phytocannabinoid hemp oil. Other CBD oils might be made in a lab.
My dog has anxiety that is too high for CBD treats to help, but perhaps these would work for him. Even CBD hemp oil hasn’t been enough on it’s own for high anxiety, like car rides or fireworks. My dog gets 25 mg of CBD hemp oil (Pet Releaf or Canna Canine) on a Ewegurt treat (bought these based on your review!) twice daily, plus a low dose of Prozac. (He is intolerant of common sedating drugs like Valium and Trazodone.) When a high anxiety-provoking event occurs or is anticipated, I break out the big guns: Fairwinds Companion Tincture, which is 5:1 CBD to THC, and designed for pets and humans. It is available at marijuana shops in WA.
At Pet Releaf, we control our entire manufacturing process, from seed to sale, from plant to pet. 100% of Pet Releaf’s hemp is grown at our joint-venture hemp farm located in eastern Colorado. It is the largest Certified USDA Organic hemp farm in the United States and we’re the only pet company they work with! We plant and harvest a specialized proprietary strain of hemp, PR-33, grown specifically with pets in mind. Since we extract a Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, Pet Releaf Edibites provide your pet with the multitude of health benefits associated with CBD while also providing the additional medicinal benefits associated with the over 100 other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found within PR-33.

The primary claims of reputable CBD treats for dogs revolve around cannabidiol’s effects on the brain and the body. They are not a cure for any particular ailment; they are used as palliatives for a number of neurological and persistent pain conditions. We are not trying to make claims ourselves for their effectiveness, simply reporting that these treats have been used specifically for the following purposes:
cbdMD dog treats are a better deal when compared to what I spent on veterinarian appointments and prescription medication before I knew that Rodrigo was a candidate for natural solutions. The first time I gave him prescription medication, he spaced out, slipped out the door at night, and got lost in the woods while fireworks were going off around us. I found him, but these were the scariest moments I've had with him. With these CBD dog treats, he was sleeping peacefully 30 minutes after having a snack despite the fireworks.
Each of these no-nonsense biscuits contains 4mg of CBD. There are only five ingredients involved in their making, which is so straightforward and simple that you probably could make them on your own for much cheaper. But you probably won’t (I’m a devoted dog mom too, but I don’t have time to DIY everything), and if you’re looking for nothing but CBD with an appetizing bacon flavor to please your pupper, here you go.
