Several companies have already managed to stand out from the pack and make a name for themselves. We happened to see a few of these companies at the 2018 Global Pet Expo in Florida and learned about the products and their effectiveness right from the source. If you’re considering trying CBD oils for dogs or hemp dog treats, I strongly recommend starting with the following companies, each of which provide unique products.
First, we need to outline the distinction between CBD and THC. Cannabidiol is not the same thing as tetrahydrocannabinol. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the major reason why words like “cannabis,” “marijuana,” “pot,” and “weed” provoke immediate and negative reactions among the general populace. Like CBD, THC is a cannabinoid. THC is a psychoactive compound that produces the sensations of being “stoned.”
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.

But I'm not comfortable giving my dog something I wouldn't try for myself, because I am a crazy dog lady. So that's what I did. I bought "Holistic Hound CBD Dog Treats" in pasture raised savory chicken-flavor and "Treatibles Hemp Wellness Dog Chews with naturally occurring CBD" in blueberry, and, on two separate evenings, I hunkered down to eat them.
This is why Hemp Genix was created: to provide to you the best opportunity to improve your health with all natural, non-GMO, and pesticide-free, PETA Registered, FDA Registered, FDA Approves Sunblocks, and CGMP Certified Facility to manufacturer hemp based CBD Oil products. Harsh chemicals or solvents ARE NOT USED when obtaining the high CBD hemp oil found in the products we sell on this site. Supercritical Fluid Extraction is the method of choice, which utilizes highly pressurized CO2 within a closed system under cold temperatures to preserve the nutritional profile of the hemp plant, passing all of that nutrition on to you.

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.

However, there are veterinarians that support THC-free hemp supplements for animals. Miami-based veterinarian Dr. Patricia Khuly, VMD, has recommended hemp supplements to her patients, and has even made homemade versions using hemp oil for her pets. “I find they can be somewhat effective as part of a well rounded chronic pain protocol,” she tells Leafly—though she has never used them for pet anxiety or improving fur and skin. “Hemp oil sounds interesting for use in the same way fish oil would be implemented for these other indications,” she adds, “especially for my vegan clients who prefer to source non-animal based products for their pets.” She would like to see more research first, though.
