While it seems highly unlikely that CBD will be incorporated into complete pet diets anytime soon, if ever, given the FDA and AAFCO stances, that hasn’t stopped manufacturers of related products from trying. In March 2017, Naturally Splendid Enterprises, maker of HempOmega hemp seed oil, commissioned a study to show that its proprietary encapsulation process may protect the omega-3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins in the oil during the pet food manufacturing process. If it ever (legally) makes it into formulations, that is.
A lot of pet owners want nothing but the best for their pets and CBD may be the answer to that. There are dog treats that have CBD in them which you can use for your pet. Nowadays in the holistic pet market, you can expect that more CBD products are coming your way and that they will be safe for your pets to use. There are dog treats as well as topical creams that can help your pet deal with the kind of pain and illnesses that they feel. It can help when you are aware of the effects that CBD will have for your pet.
There are plenty of THC-free (or less than 1% THC) CBD hemp oil supplements for dogs that you can buy online or in some pet stores. There are oils and tinctures that you can drop directly into their mouths or mix into their food. These are not usually labeled specifically as “treats” because CBD is not an approved ingredient in FDA-regulated dog food, but for the right dog, they just might hit the spot. Here, I’ve included the best treat-like supplements for your pup—because shouldn’t Fido enjoy his cannabis experience too?
