The cannabis industry is proliferating, which is making a lot of people and a lot of animals very happy. Did the fact that I mentioned animals in the same sentence as cannabis make you confused? How could you ever combine these two things? Shouldn’t our pets completely avoid all cannabis related products because they could do them harm?

If that’s what you are thinking, you’re not quite right. Taking one quick look at will help you understand that there’s a lot more to cannabis than you might have thought and that not everything related to it is harmful to us or our animals. The first thing you should understand is that there are a lot of types of cannabis. The second thing you should understand is that all those types are made of multiple compounds.

I can assume that the things I have told you so far have only increased the number of questions you might have about the cannabis based products known as CBD dog treats. Sure, there are a lot of different CBD products out there, but these ones are our topic for the day and I will try to answer the most frequently asked questions about them. Let us get started.

Are They Psychoactive?

Unsurprisingly, people’s first concern about CBD treats is their very connection to cannabis and the possibility to get high on these products. Let me put your mind at ease right there. CBD treats are made from Cannabidiol, which is one of the compounds found in the cannabis plants. Unlike THC, this one is not psychoactive. In addition to that, when pet products are in question, it is usually extracted from hemp and hemp contains less than 0.3% of THC in itself.

Do They Have Any Side Effects?

A large amount of studies have proved that CBD doesn’t have any serious and severe side effects. The worst thing that can happen is for your canine to get drowsy and sleepy. That won’t happen either if you just take your time to do some research and determine exactly how many treats you should give to your pet. As you can see, you shouldn’t expect any side effects, but if you are curious about benefits, you can find out more about those.

How Many Treats Should The Dog Have Daily?

I cannot tell you exactly how many treats you should administer, simply because this depends on the supplier you buy them from, as well as on the type of dog you own. Different manufacturers put different amounts of CBD in their products, which means that you should read the label before administering the product. Usually, 1mg to 5mg is recommended for every 10 pounds of body weight. Depending on the issue you are trying to solve, you can give this amount to your canine once, twice, or three times a day.

How Long Before They Start Working?

Once you have determined the right dosage, you can expect these products to work rather quickly. Once again, this depends on the issues you are trying to solve. These can work in as little as 15 minutes when the issues you are dealing with are not that serious. If you don’t notice any kinds of improvements in an hour, feel free to give your canine another CBD treat.

What Can They Help With?

Naturally, you don’t want to buy these products before knowing what they can do for your pet. The main purpose of CBD treats is usually to relieve symptoms of anxiety disorders and help the animal be more relaxed. That’s not everything, though. These can also help manage pain, epileptic seizures, aggressive behavior, as well as resolve digestive issues. There is some evidence suggesting that they can help treat cancer.

Here is what experts say about cannabis and cancer:

Can The Dog Overdose On CBD Treats?

While we have covered the topic of side effects above, I am not at all surprised to find out that people are still concerned about the possibility of their dogs overdosing on CBD treats. This, however, isn’t possible. That doesn’t mean that you should exaggerate with the dosage. Remember, exaggerating can cause drowsiness. Determine the perfect dosage and use the products responsibly.
